MICHIGAN ORTHOPAEDIC & SPINE SURGEONS PRIVACY NOTICE
Our Commitment to Privacy
What Information Do We Collect?
In general, you can visit this website without identifying who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Information collected online can generally be categorized as anonymous or personally identifiable. Anonymous information is information that cannot be connected to the identity of a specific individual. Personally identifiable information is information that specifically identifies a particular user, such as name, address, or phone number. An example of anonymous information is the fact that, while this website may record the number of visits to a particular page that occur in a given period of time, it does not necessarily tell us the names or other identifying information of every visitor. Many users of this website will choose not to provide any personally identifiable information; therefore, those individuals are anonymous to us, and any data collected about their use of this website is anonymous information. Be sure to scroll down to read examples of information we collect.
How Do We Use Information We Collect?
When you provide any personally identifiable information to us via e-mail or other means of communication, the information will not be anonymous. We collect the information and have access to it. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, where applicable, improving your online experience and our products and services, generating statistical studies, conducting marketing research, and communicating with you. When you submit personally identifiable information to us, you understand that you are agreeing to allow us to access, store, and use that information for those purposes.
We will not sell or give any personally identifiable information to any third parties.
Automatic Anonymous Information
When you visit our site, we collect certain technical and routing information about your computer. For example, we log environmental variables such as browser type, operating system and CPU speed, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your originating Internet Service Provider, to try to bring you the best possible service. We also record search requests and results to try to ensure the accuracy and efficiency of our search engine. We use your IP address to track your use of the site, including pages visited and the time spent on each page. We collect this information and use it to measure the use of this website and to improve its content and performance. All of the information that is automatically submitted to us by your browser is considered anonymous information. To the extent we share such information with third parties, it is not traceable to any particular user and will not be used to contact you.
Links to other websites
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
Choices You Have
As discussed above you may choose not to provide personal identifiable information. If at any time you do not wish to receive offers and e-mails from us, we ask that you tell us. You may remove your name from our mailing list by sending us an e-mail addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org and indicating in the subject line “No Offers or E-mail.”
We operate secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary, and only authorized individuals have access to the personally identifiable information provided by our users. We do not, however, guarantee that unauthorized, inadvertent disclosure will never occur.
We work to protect the security of your information, by using encryption whenever we collect sensitive information. We do not reveal the entire credit card number when an order is completed. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finishing using a shared computer or after completing a transaction in your personal computer.
Children’s Use Not Permitted
Michorthospine.com does not sell products for purchase by children. We sell products for purchase by adults. If you are under 18, you may use michorthospine.com only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
Transfer of Customer Information
Customer lists and information are properly considered assets of a business. Accordingly, if we merge with another entity or if we sell our assets to another entity, our customer lists and information, including personally identifiable information you have provided us, would be included among the assets that would be transferred.
Notices and Revisions
If you choose to visit michorthospine.com, your visit and any disputes over privacy is subject to this Notice, including limitations on damages, resolution of disputes, and application of the law of the state of Michigan. If you have any concern about privacy at michorthospine.com, please contact us with a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it. Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Notice will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices, but you should check our Website frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and we will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
