PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTION & USAGE: guardianhealthcare.com only collects personal information from our visitors on a voluntary basis. Personal information may include name, address, phone number, birth date and similar information which identifies you. We collect this information so that you may obtain access to patients-only portions of our Web site and/or to receive guardianhealthcare.com products and services. We do not sell or rent or transmit personal information to other organizations.

However, some guardianhealthcare.com events or services are co-sponsored or provided in connection with other companies not under the direct control of the guardianhealthcare.com. These include newsletters, discussion groups and similar services. Whenever we provide such services, we will disclose the name of our sponsor or provider, and will disclose any guardianhealthcare.com information collection and use practices which may differ from those practices set forth in this policy. Co-sponsors of guardianhealthcare.com services and events may require registration information from you which will be used by the co-sponsor or its partners to contact you regarding such services or events. When signing up or registering for any such services or events where guardianhealthcare.com is not the sole sponsor and provider, you should be aware of any differing privacy practices by our partners and read all disclosures available to you. Though guardianhealthcare.com makes reasonable efforts to only work with reputable partners, we cannot control their privacy practices in every instance regarding the personal information you voluntarily provide to them.

AGGREGATE INFORMATION COLLECTION & USAGE: We may collect information from visitors to our Web site and users of our services in an aggregate, anonymous form, which means that the information will not contain nor be linked to any personal information. Guardianhealthcare.com uses this information to measure the use of our Web site and to improve the content of our Web site. Aggregate information may also be compiled based upon personal information. When this information is shared with a third party, it does not contain any personal information.

CLICKSTREAM: As you use the Internet, a trail of electronic information is left at each Web site you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as “clickstream data,” can be collected and stored by a Web site’s server. Clickstream data can tell us the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the Web site from which you linked to the Web site. We may use clickstream data as a form of aggregate information to anonymously determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our Web site, how visitors navigate throughout the Web site and how we may tailor our Web pages to better meet the needs of visitors. This information may be used to improve our Web site or to share with business partners. Any collection or use of clickstream data will be anonymous and aggregate, and will not contain any personal information.

CHANGES TO POLICY; OPT-OUT PROCESS: We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions from this policy at any time. Your continued use of our Web site following the posting of any changes to this policy means you accept such changes.

However, if at any time in the future we plan to use personal information in a way that differs from this policy, we will provide you the opportunity to opt-out of such differing uses.
