YOUR “PERSONAL INFORMATION” Our websites are used for sales and marketing and educational purposes only. “Personal Information” includes any data or information provided by you on our websites which can be used to identify you or communicate with you for these purposes. Although we maintain safeguards to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure the security or privacy of any Personal Information you provide to us, and you do so at your own risk. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any logins or passwords you establish on our websites.
Personal Information shall never be deemed to include “protected health information,” as that term is defined in 45 C.F.R. § 160.103 of the HIPAA regulations. As such, we have no obligation to handle your Personal Information in accordance with HIPAA regulations and you shall have no expectation of privacy as to your Personal Information. You acknowledge and agree that you will not assert any HIPAA claim against us based upon our collection, storage, or use of your Personal Information.
STORAGE OF “PERSONAL INFORMATION” Here are the types of Personal Information we collect and store:
Information You Provide: We may store any information you enter on our websites, including, without limitation, your name, address(es), e-mail address(es), and phone number(s). We use the information that you provide for such purposes as personalizing your use of our websites, improving our websites, and communicating with you. Automatic Information: We may store certain types of information whenever you interact with us online, and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our websites or advertisements or other content served by or on our behalf, including, without limitation: internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the internet; login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information such as browser type, version, and time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system, and platform; and “cookies,” which are unique identifiers that we transfer to your device to enable our systems to recognize your device and to provide increased functionality to you. The “HELP” feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer. E-mail Communications: To help us tailor e-mail communication to your preferences, we may receive and store a confirmation when you open e-mail from us if your computer supports such capabilities.
