Wayne Health website privacy
Registration. You are always welcome to use the Wayne Health website without registering or providing any information. However, we may require you to register for certain services, available now or in the future, including online bill pay and personal information. When you use these features, we will clearly disclose what information is required, what information is optional and how that information may be used.
We use this information in aggregate form only. In other words, we combine the information with data collected from other individuals to produce anonymous, aggregated statistical information. We collect and use demographic information, such as the percentage of female visitors or the number of visitors of a certain age, in order to improve the content of our site on behalf of our site visitors. We also may share this anonymous, aggregated information, which does not identify individuals, with partners or other third parties. In instances where third parties may receive anonymous, aggregated user information collected on our site, our agreements with the third parties, including sponsors, generally provide that the third parties will not use the anonymous, aggregated user information to identify individual users or sell, disclose or provide access to any user information collected on our site that would identify any individual or connect any individual to specific illnesses or conditions.
Should you register to use a feature such as a discussion board, we require that you provide your e-mail address and select a username and password. We use this information only if you violate our terms and conditions for participation in these forums and we have to contact you.
We treat any personal information you give us as confidential. We do not analyze your personal information nor do we collect specific information about your use of our site.
Wayne Health will not disclose to third parties any identifying personal information gathered from you during registration for online features, unless: (1) we tell you how your information will be used and you give Wayne Health specific permission to share this information or (2) Wayne Health is required to disclose such information by any applicable law or legal process (like a subpoena or court order). Where we disclose identifying personal information to third parties with your authorization, we will require the recipient to use the information only for the purpose provided.
Wayne Health uses only benign cookies that have no functionality. This means the cookie cannot do anything to your computer’s hard drive and cannot read information from your computer’s hard drive.
Cookies also may be used by Wayne Health on an aggregate basis to track site navigation. This information is not traceable to an individual user. Navigation streams are used to assist us in determining where people go when visiting our site and how long they stay in a particular area. This information is used to improve our site and may be shared with advertisers.
If you click on a sponsorship acknowledgment, you will be leaving Wayne Health and will be directed to the sponsor’s site. Be aware that Wayne Health has no control over the practices of other websites. Your computer may receive cookies from other sites and you will not be protected by Wayne Health’s security and privacy policies.
The cookie feature can be turned off on your browser. For more information on turning off the cookie feature, consult your browser help section. If you choose to turn off cookies, you can still access all areas of our site. Once the cookie feature on your browser is turned off, you might have to “refuse” a cookie each time you encounter one searching our site.
IP Addresses. An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) whenever you access the Internet. This number may be the same each time you access the Internet or it may change. Like other Internet sites, Wayne Health uses IP addresses to collect aggregate information about numbers of visitors and site usage. The address is logged on our server when your computer requests information from Wayne Health. However, to allow users to access our site anonymously, your IP address is not linked with personal information about you. Wayne Health reserves the right, in rare instances, to use IP addresses to identify individuals who threaten our site, service or customers.
Surveys, Questionnaires and Polls. When you respond to surveys, questionnaires or polls on our site, we may, at times, ask you for demographic information such as your gender or age. This information is collected only as anonymous, aggregated information and is used for statistical purposes. Otherwise, we do not collect or store your personal responses.
Search Functions. We do not collect information about searches that you perform on our site.
