We have created this internet site to provide information and resources for patients, visitors, family members, health care professionals, and other interested parties.
Information we collect
We track and log visitors to our website via an automatic monitoring program. This program informs us what time you visit our website and what pages you access, and what, if any, words you type when utilizing our search mechanism. We are also able to log the IP addresses of visitors to the website and use this information to both track user visits and technically administer the website and diagnose network and other problems.
Most internet browsers accept cookies automatically. You are able to modify your browser settings to block or restrict cookies if you do not want your web browsing activity tracked. A variety of tools exist to help manage cookies or other technologies. You can learn more from the FTC and the Digital Advertising Alliance opt-out page, which allows visitors to opt out of receiving internet based advertising from multiple publishers. You can also learn more about how Google uses data from Google Analytics when you visit websites by reviewing How Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services.
