What Information Do We Collect? How Will We Use the Information?
Our system routinely collects information about origin and site navigation of website visitors. This information is used to assist us in determining use patterns for website functions, visitor preferences and determining future website enhancements. We do not acquire or link any personal data on visitors unless that information is submitted as part of a request for service or information, such as requesting an appointment.

Who is Collecting the Information?
The only people using aggregate website information is our web team. If a visitor submits additional identifying information (as noted above), that information is available only to staff that will be involved in implementing the requested activity.

Cookies and Other Technologies
We collect the anonymous information we mentioned above through the use of various technologies, one of which is called “cookies.” A cookie is an element of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive. Cookies may last for only a single session or may span multiple sessions. Our Web site only uses single session cookies. [NOTE: “Remember Me” requires a persistent cookie]. We also use cookies throughout the private sections of our Web site in order to prevent security breaches as well as to track user activity. Finally, cookies are employed in such applications as shopping carts, continuing education, or other applications that require the storage of user data from one screen to the next.

However, we may disclose information when legally compelled to do so.

Consumer Choices
