Your privacy is very important to Digestive Care Consultants (DCC), and we are committed to protecting it. You are welcome to explore our web site without providing any information about yourself. When you visit and navigate our Web site, we will not collect personal information about you unless you provide us that information voluntarily. By “personal information,” we mean data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, e-mail address or telephone number.
What Information Does DCC collect from me?
Our web server automatically recognizes your domain name. Our web server does not recognize your e-mail address. Most of DCC has been designed to not require the use of any personal identifiers (such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address). IF YOU SEND US AN E-MAIL OR SUBSCRIBE TO A NEWSLETTTER, WE WILL HAVE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS AT OUR SITE.
DCC collects and uses certain information on its web site. This information includes your IP address, information about your browser (i.e., whether you are using Netscape, Internet Explorer, etc.), and information about your Internet Service Provider (i.e., AOL, Verizon). An IP address (Internet Protocol Address) is a unique number that is used to represent every single computer in a network. All computers on the Internet have a unique IP address. None of the foregoing information will be used by DCC in any way, or in connection with any other information, to identify you personally.
DCC uses the statistical information gathered about you and all of its users for internal statistical purposes only, e.g., to track where users go on the web site. This information is not linked to specifically identifiable individuals. This type of information will be used to aid DCC in adding information to its web site that will be useful for site users and that will improve the performance of our web site.
We do not intend to collect information from children. If we learn that we inadvertently have collected personal identifying information from a child under the age of 13, we will promptly delete that data from our systems.
When you sign up for free health e-mails, we maintain information about your selections only for the purpose of sending you the e-mails. We do not use identifying personal information for any other purpose although it may be included in anonymous, aggregated statistical information. If you communicate with us by email you should understand that email is not secure against interception. If your communication includes sensitive or confidential information, please contact us by phone or mail.
Instructions for unsubscribing from e-mails are located at the bottom of each e-mail. Click the link given and request to be removed from our list.
A cookie is a piece of information that is stored on your computer’s hard drive, not on our site.
Disclosure of Your Information
All of the information you choose to provide us is absolutely confidential and voluntary. We will never give, sell, rent or reveal your name or address (including e-mail) to any outside party without your express consent. The DCC will not disclose your personally identifiable information to independent third parties other than those who help us operate our site, (such as an independent third party who might help us deliver our newsletters).
DCC takes reasonable precautions to protect your personally identifiable information. When users submit personally identifiable information, it is protected both on-line and off-line.
