Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy is designed to keep you informed about the way personally identifiable information about you may be collected on this Web site, with whom we may share it, the uses which may be made of that information, and the manner by which you may review and request changes to any personally identifiable information which we may collect.
 
The Meaning of Certain Terms Used in Our Policy
As used in our Privacy Policy, the term "personally identifiable information" means, with respect to a person who accesses this Web site (a "User"): first and last names; addresses; email addresses; telephone numbers; date of birth; and any other identifier which would permit contact to be made with a specific individual. Personally identifiable information also means information concerning a User, which would be specific to the individual if linked to the identifiers previously described.
 
Information We Collect
Personally identifiable information which you provide us and that we may collect will ordinarily include your name and your email address but may in some cases also include a telephone number, residence or business address or other identifier which would permit contact to be made with you specifically. Personally identifiable information also includes other information concerning and linked to you specifically, such as occupation, interests and the like. All such information may be required of the User, normally in order to obtain requested information.
We may also collect information which will not be specifically linked to you but which may be used to improve our Web site service, and this will not be considered personally identifiable information. For example, HealthCare Partners may gather information about visitors to its Web site by tracking the usage of certain features. The collection of this information enables HealthCare Partners to tailor its content to your needs, keep you informed of information that you may find of interest, and to help better understand the needs of Users.

We may store data on your computer (a "cookie") when you visit our Web site. This data may enable us to recognize you automatically and to keep apprised of your usage of the Web site. You may avoid having a cookie by setting your browser to deal with or block cookies in the manner you specify.
 
Children
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, HealthCare Partners does not intend to or knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from children under 13.
 
Effective Date and Policy Changes
HealthCare Partners reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time and at any time, and when that occurs we will notify visitors to this Web site of such changes. We will not communicate changes in any other manner, including, for example, by email to individual users. This Privacy Policy is effective December 1, 2005.
