The IHHS understands your concerns around personal privacy. We know that your healthcare is a very private and personal matter. Therefore, we will not collect any personal information without your express consent.
Any information gathered with your consent will never be sold, traded, or given to any organization or individual outside of the Society. We will use your information only for the express purpose for which it was provided to us. When the Society receives 'personally identifiable information'--which means any information by which you can be identified, such as your name, address, telephone number, etc.--we may use it for reasonable business purposes, such as contacting you, via e-mail or regular mail, to provide you with information we believe may be of interest. If you e-mail us, you are voluntarily releasing information to us. Your e-mail address may be used to respond to you.
From time to time, we may use "cookies," which assign a unique, random code to identify a particular computer, in order to track visitors' movements throughout the Site or otherwise enhance your visit. The cookies report this information to our servers only. The cookies do not tell us your e-mail address or anything else personal about you. In addition, we may at times aggregate the information and use it to make changes to the Site in order to improve the Site.
We have implemented technology and security policies, rules, and measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from unauthorized access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction, and accidental loss.
Since we conduct research on user demographics, interests, and behaviors based upon information provided to us during use of our Web sites, we may combine your information with information collected from other individuals to produce anonymous, aggregated statistical information. Aggregated data do not include personally identifiable information. We use this demographic information, such as the percentage of male or female visitors, or the percentage of visitors within certain age brackets, to improve the content of the Site. We also may share this anonymous, aggregated information, which does not identify particular individuals or associate particular individuals with an illness or a condition, with partners or other third parties.
CLICKSTREAM DATA AND IP ADDRESSES
A “clickstream” or “clickstream data” reflects the path taken by a user through the Site. Most importantly, it represents the traffic pattern by which a user moves from one Web page to another. We track such information only within this site.
We track and use this information to understand how our users’ habits vary in order to better personalize the content, banner ads, and promotions that you and other users will see on the Site. This data do not contain or reveal any personally identifiable information about the user.
An Internet protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider (ISP) whenever you log onto the Internet. Like providers of other Internet sites, the IHHS may use IP addresses to collect aggregate and anonymous information about the number of visitors and site usage. The IHHS does reserve the right, however, to use IP addresses to identify individuals who threaten the Site, our service, or our customers.
