Information River City Medical Group gathers
River City Medical Group collects and uses certain information on its web site. This information includes your internet protocol address, information about your browser (Netscape, Internet Explorer, etc.) and information about your Internet Service Provider (e.g., AOL, PacBell, etc.). An IP 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 River City Medical Group in any way, or in connection with any other information, to identify you personally.
River City Medical Group may collect information about you through various online forms that you may voluntarily complete. Completion of these forms is entirely optional. If you supply any personally identifiable information to us on these forms (e.g., name/address/email address), River City Medical Group will not use this information to contact you unless you have specifically stated that we may do so.
How the information is used
River City Medical Group 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 our web site. This information is not linked to specifically identifiable individuals. This type of information will be used to aid River City Medical Group in adding information to its web site that will be useful for site users and that will improve the performance of our web site.
Any personally identifiable information which you voluntarily and knowingly submit to River City Medical Group will be used, with your permission, to send you health information and health updates, both general information and information focused on specific health matters, such as high blood pressure. Your personally identifiable information may also be used to send you timely appointment reminders for specific health-related tests, such as Pap smears. Submission by you of any personally identifiable health information is completely voluntary.
