Cookies

CareConnections may place a "cookie" on the browser of your computer. Cookies are pieces of information that a web site transfers to your computer's hard disk for record-keeping purposes. The use of cookies is common in the Internet industry, and many major web sites use them to provide useful features to their customers. The cookie itself does not contain any personally identifying information, but may be used to tell when your computer has contacted the CareConnections site. CareConnections uses the information for editorial purposes and for other purposes such as delivery of features and advertisements, so that CareConnections can customize delivery of information specific to your interests without compromising privacy.

Links

This site contains links to other sites. CareConnections is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites, including any sites that may indicate a special relationship or partnership with CareConnections (such as co-branded pages and "powered by" relationships) or the sites of CareConnections advertisers that you go to by clicking on a banner ad on the CareConnections site.
CareConnections does not disclose unique identifiers to those responsible for the linked sites. The linked sites, however, may collect personal information from you when you link to their site. This collecting of information is not subject to CareConnections’ control. To ensure protection of your privacy, always review the privacy policy of the sites you visit by linking from our Web Site.

Security

This site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.

Your Role in Protecting Your Privacy

If you share a terminal with others, you may want to consider establishing an anonymous e-mail account. In this way, e-mails that you receive from CareConnections, which may reflect specific medical information of interest to you, cannot be linked to you. If you access CareConnections through an e-mail or Internet account maintained by your employer, please note that it is possible that your employer may monitor your e-mail or Internet communications.

Notification of Changes

This Privacy Statement may be revised over time as new features are added to the Web Site or as Internet security and privacy standards evolve. We will post those changes prominently so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone. We do, however, recommend that you read this Privacy Statement each time you use CareConnections, in case you missed our notice of changes to the Privacy Policy.

CareConnections also permits you to correct or update personally identifiable information that you have previously provided to us. To do so, send e-mail to support@careconnections.com indicating the information that you wish to be corrected or updated.
