Commitment to Privacy
Med Care HMC respects the privacy of every individual who uses the company’s webwebsite. This Privacy Statement outlines the information Med Care HMC will collect and how we will use that information. Therefore, please read it carefully. This Policy is subject to change. See “Changes to Privacy Statement,” below.
Personally Identifiable Information
When you visit this website, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you (such as your name, address, telephone number, social security number, billing and shipping information, credit card information or e-mail address) unless you provide it to us voluntarily. In addition, some of our pages and interactive advertisements may invite visitors to submit names, e-mail addresses or addresses of others in connection with certain promotions or offers that appear on our website or interactive advertisements. If you opt not to provide us with personally identifiable information, no material consequences will result, although you may be unable to participate in certain promotions, receive product information, or participate in any transactions through this website. Parties wishing to participate in any transactions through the website are required to provide Med Care HMC with a variety of necessary and personally identifiable information.
Use of Personally Identifiable Information
Med Care HMC may store and process your personally identifiable information to better understand your needs and how we may improve our services, and we may use your personally identifiable information to contact you (for example, we may send you marketing or promotional materials or other information, we may respond to your comments or requests for information, or we may contact you if needed in the course of processing your requests). Med Care HMC may also use your personally identifiable information in accordance with any agreements that you may have entered into with Med Care HMC. Med Care HMC will not give or sell your personally identifiable information to any outside organization for the organization’s own use apart from Med Care HMC, or unless as permitted under any other agreement that you may have with Med Care HMC. Subject to applicable law, we and our service providers (as defined herein) disclose and share your personal information: among Med Care HMC and its business associates; to unaffiliated third parties that are under contract to perform services for or on behalf of Med Care HMC (e.g., vendors hosting this website, e-mail fulfillment services, and the like); to a third party as set forth in “Transfer of Business Assets”; and to other persons as permitted or required by applicable law or regulation. Nothing in the Privacy Statement shall be deemed to prohibit Med Care HMC from disclosing your identity if Med Care HMC is required by law to do so.
Med Care HMC will make reasonable efforts to keep secure the data you provide us and will take reasonable precautions, such as using a secure server, in an effort to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse or alteration. Agents or hosting contractors of Med Care HMC who have access to your personally identifiable information in connection with providing services for Med Care HMC are required to keep the information confidential and are not permitted to use this information for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for Med Care HMC. Med Care HMC cannot, however, be liable for any security breaches, either by Med Care HMC or any third party, as discussed in greater detail below.
Med Care HMC intends that this website be used by adults and does not want to collect personal information from minors (children under 13 years of age, or any other age defined under applicable law). If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child may contact us at the e-mail address or address provided by this website if they would like this information deleted from our records. We will use reasonable efforts to delete the child’s information from our databases.
Parents may learn more about keeping children safe online at www.getnetwise.org.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected Automatically
In general, we collect the information that you provide to us when you register to use this website, when you provide us with information and comments through the website and when you send us e-mail. When you visit this website, we may passively collect other kinds of information through the website log files or cookies, including the location from which you visit us, the kind of browser you use, the date and time you visit the website, and the amount of time you spent viewing the website. Generally, we gather this information for the purpose of analyzing aggregated trends and statistics.
In addition, when you view one of our websites or advertisements, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a “cookie” or similar file and will help us in many ways. For example, cookies allow us to tailor a website or advertisement to better match your interests and preferences. Most Internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions.
Contacting Us Regarding Your Personally Identifiable Information
If you have submitted personally identifiable information through the website or interactive advertisement, or if someone else has submitted your personally identifiable information through the website or interactive advertisement, and you would like to have that information deleted from our marketing databases, please contact us via e-mail at email@example.com or send a letter to our mailing address. We will then use reasonable efforts to remove your personally identifiable information from our files, unless we are entitled to retain it pursuant to an agreement that you have entered into with Med Care HMC. You may also contact us through either of the above methods to request the personally identifiable information that Med Care HMC has collected about you through its websites or interactive advertisements. Med Care HMC will use reasonable efforts to supply you with this information and correct any factual inaccuracies in this information.
Med Care HMC may provide links to Web pages which are not part of Med Care HMC. These websites are not under Association control and Med Care HMC is not responsible for the information or links you may find there. Med Care HMC is providing these links only as a convenience. The presence of these links on any Association website is not intended to imply Association endorsement of that website but to provide a convenient link to relevant websites which are managed by other organizations, companies, or individuals.
Changes to Privacy Statement
No Liability for Acts of Third Parties
Although Med Care HMC will use reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure and this website cannot be absolutely protected against unauthorized intrusion. Med Care HMC will have no liability for disclosure of information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized or negligent acts of third parties. In addition, Med Care HMC will release specific information about you to comply with any valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of security or a physical threat to you or others.
Please note that if you give out personally identifiable information online – for example, through a message board, a chat room or otherwise – that information can be collected and used by third parties. Although we strive to protect our users’ privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of information you post in these forums. You disclose such information at your own risk.
Transfer of Business Assets
As we continue to develop Med Care HMC, we might acquire, buy or merge with other businesses or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Med Care HMC or substantially all of its assets are acquired, both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information will be one of the transferred assets.
