Sharing of information

We do not sell your information.

We may share your information with third party companies as necessary to provide you with services you have requested from us. These third parties are prohibited from using your personal information or a patient’s protected health information except to provide these services, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of that information.

We may also share your information as required or permitted by law.

Our commitment to website security

For fast, secure and effective access, we recommend using the latest updated web browsers (such as Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari) supported by your device or computer.

For users of our portal, eCSI, our secure, password-protected website allows you to view private information (for example, patient information) and other details online. We use industry-standard firewalls and encryption to protect your information. You need an ID and password to access any online systems that display personal information. Our website features SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) with a digital certificate to enforce a minimum of 128-bit encrypted sessions.

We conduct regular web application vulnerability assessments to ensure all of our externally facing web pages are protected from attack in compliance with industry standards.

How we use technology to better serve you

We use different kinds of tracking technology to help us improve our website and our communications to you. For example, we collect tracking information by following your “footsteps” on our website.

Cookies

A “cookie” is information that we store on your computer. For example, we may set an “ID tag” that allows us to recognize your computer when you visit our website.

We use cookies to help us optimize your online experience and to support the delivery of information to you. We do not store your personal private information in cookies.

We may use different kinds of cookies, depending on which part of our site you visit:

  • Persistent cookies: These cookies stay in your browser until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them based on the duration period contained within the persistent cookie’s file.
  • Non-persistent (“session”) cookies: These temporary cookies disappear when you close your browser.
  • Trusted partners: We may contract with trusted partners who use cookies and other tracking mechanisms to collect information on our behalf. These third parties are prohibited by our contract with them from sharing that information with anyone other than us or our designated service providers.

If you do not wish to receive communications from us regarding our products and services, you can opt out at any time.

The Help menu on your browser will tell you how to stop 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.

If you turn off cookies, you will still be able to access your account and information, but you may not be able to use some of the features on our website.

Other tracking methods

We use other tracking technology to help us personalize your visit to our site, including tracking beacons, JavaScript tracking and session tracking. We use these methods to learn how we can make our site better and see how well our marketing campaigns are working. When we use tracking technology in emails we may send you, it tells us when you opened the email. This helps us learn how effective our messages are to you. Our website is not configured to accommodate website tracking opt out (Do Not Track) signals.

Third-party website links

Our web pages may include links to third-party sites, including social media sites, that provide related or helpful information or services. While we try to select quality content and sites, we do not control or operate these sites, and our policies and practices do not apply.
