hc1.com® Website Privacy Statement, effective as of January 8, 2015
hc1.com Inc. (hc1.com, “us”, “our” or “we”) is committed to protecting the privacy of individuals who visit the hc1.com websites (“visitors”). This Website Privacy Statement (“Statement”) provides information about how we collect, use and transfer personally identifiable data from you, an individual person and visitor, through hc1.com’s publicly accessible website (www.hc1.com) and any other site maintained by hc1.com from time to time) that may be accessed without a password and on which we post a direct link to this Statement (collectively, the “Site”).
This Statement covers only data collected through the Site and not any other data collection or processing, including, without limitation, data collection practices of webpages to which the Site links, or data that we or our affiliates collect offline or through webpages that do not display a direct link to this Statement, for example the hc1.com® Healthcare Relationship Cloud™ on which we house data for registered customers.
By accessing any area of the Site, you acknowledge notice of this Statement and agree with and acknowledge the terms, conditions and responsibilities as set out below.
Types of Data and Collection Methods
Through the Site, we receive data that you actively submit as well as data that we track as described below.
When you request information or otherwise actively send us data (“actively submitted data”), we usually collect data such as your name, e-mail address(es), telephone number(s), and company name. You can opt out of providing information by not entering it when asked and, if such information is required in order to allow us to respond to your inquiry, you will receive a notice advising you of this. In each such instance, you will know what data we collect through the Site, because you actively submit it.
Additionally, when you visit the Site, we also passively track information on your computer and Internet connection, such as the IP address of your computer and/or Internet service provider, the date and time you access the Site, the Internet address of websites from which you link to our Site, the computer technology you are using and your movements and preferences on our Site.
Unless you also actively submit personal information such as your name or address, passively tracked data does not typically allow us to identify you personally (even though it can theoretically be done, we do not have the means or an interest to find out who you are, unless you identify yourself voluntarily through an active submission of data). To the extent permitted by applicable law, we reserve the right to combine passively tracked data with personal data that you actively submit.
Collection Purposes, Use of Data
We collect data that is passively tracked via our Site primarily for purposes of administering, protecting and improving our Site and our systems, to better understand the preferences of our visitors, to identify server problems, to compile aggregated statistics about site usage, and to help personalize your experience on our Site. We do not deliver third party online advertisements on our sites but we may advertise our products and services on others’ websites.
We collect actively submitted data primarily for two purposes: Firstly, for the purpose for which you originally sent us the data; and secondly, for purposes of contacting you to further discuss your interest in our company, the services we provide and ways we can improve them to provide information on services, promotions and events.
Disclosures of Personal Information
We are not in the business of selling or renting your information to telemarketers. We limit sharing your personally identifiable information with our trusted business partners, such as system integrators, distributors, and referral partners, and any other party specifically identified on the page on which you submit your information. We engage agents and service providers who process data only on our behalf and for our purposes under confidentiality agreements. We may share your information as required by law or in the interest of protecting or exercising our or others’ legal rights (e.g., without limitation, in connection with requests from law enforcement officials and in connection with court proceedings). We may share or transfer your information in connection with a prospective or actual sale, merger, transfer or other reorganization of all or parts of our business. Also, we reserve the right to fully use and disclose any information that is not in personally identifiable form (such as statistics and survey results that do not identify you individually by name).
