Privacy Policy

 

Private Health Management, Inc. and Private Health Management Medical Group, Inc. (collectively, “Private Health”) respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it. We provide this statement to inform you of our privacy policy and practices for this website. Each client of Private Health also receives a separate notice which describes the way we may use and disclose medical information and their rights and certain obligations we have regarding the use and disclosure of medical information.

Effective June 2008, this privacy policy covers personally identifiable information and anonymous data collection through aggregate reporting. Personally identifiable information is any information that is associated with your name or personal identity (such as your name, address, email address, phone number, etc.). Anonymous (non-personal) data is information about usage and service operation, reported in aggregate, which is not associated with a specific personal identity (such as browser type, IP address, etc.).

From time to time, we may ask you to provide us with personally identifiable information about you through our website. We use this information to better understand your needs and interests, and to provide you with better service. Once you choose to provide us with personal information, it will only be used to support your relationship with Private Health. Only Private Health and its authorized agents have access to the personally identifiable information you provide us through our website. We will not sell, rent or lease your personally identifiable information to others, nor will we share, trade or exchange your personally identifiable information with anyone outside of Private Health without your permission, except under requirement by law or judgment or when we explicitly notify you at the time we ask for your personally identifiable information.

Anonymous (non-personal) data is collected in aggregate for reporting about our website usability, performance and effectiveness. It is used to improve the customer experience, usability and site content.

This site contains links to other websites. Private Health is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by this website.


What We Collect

On the Private Health website, you can make information requests or sign up to receive news and information from us. The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include name, address, phone number, email address and contact preferences. Anonymous (non-personal) data we collect may include the pages visited on www.privatehealthmgmt.com and unique URLs visited within our website, browser type and IP address. Most anonymous data is collected via cookies (see below) or other analysis technologies. From time to time, we may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personally identifiable information.

To help us improve the quality of our website, Private Health uses an external service that provides real-time reporting on the use of our website, including page views, unique views, unique visitors, repeat visitors, frequency of visits, and peak-volume traffic periods. We do not use this service to gather, request, record, require, collect or track a user's personally identifying information.

Because we care about the safety and privacy of children online, we comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulation establish United States federal law that protects the privacy of children using the Internet. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 and our products and services do not target information to children under 13. Our sites are not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13, and we have designed our sites to block our knowing acceptance of information from children under 13 whenever age-related information is requested.

It is possible that by fraud or deception by others, we may receive information pertaining to children under 13. If we are notified of this, as soon as we verify the information, we will immediately obtain parental consent or otherwise delete the information from our servers. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information by children under 13, please do so by emailing us at info@privatehealth.com. Private Health is committed to protecting the privacy needs of children and we encourage parents to take an active role in their children’s online activities and interests.


How We Use the Information We Collect

Private Health uses your information to help us understand your needs and interests and provide you with better services. Specifically, we use your information to communicate with you, to provide service and support, to update you on services and benefits, and to personalize promotional offers.

We partner with other parties to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not permitted to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

Data collected online may also be combined with information you provide through other sources, such as conferences or personal contacts with members of Private Health.


Opt-Out Policy

From time to time, we may send emails and other information to users about Private Health and its activities. We may also send you information from other like-minded organizations whose products or services we think you might find interesting.

Conditions of Use, Notices and Revisions

We will always use information collected through this website in accordance with the website privacy policy under which the information was collected.
