Mobile Vascular Physicians (“MVP”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information that you share with us. Generally, you may browse through our website without providing any information about yourself. When we require personal information to provide services or when you choose to provide us with your personal information, this policy describes how we collect and use your personal information.
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal interests, medical conditions or other information when needed to provide a service you requested.
When you browse our website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish MVP to remember your login and password or you submit a registration form. We do not collect personal information for the purpose of reselling or distributing that information. We may log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. However, we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our website. Like many other commercial websites, the MVP website may use a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how you use the site. Please go to "Cookies and Tracking Information" below for more information.
MVP collects personal information when you register with MVP for an appointment[, for an MVP Patient Portal account,] or when you submit your information to MVP for any other reason.
[Access to certain MVP web pages may require a login and a password. The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between that affiliated site and MVP. Your personal information may be retained by MVP to verify compliance with the agreement, log software licenses granted, or to track software downloaded from those pages.]
When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection the purpose for the collection. MVP will not transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent.
We will always give you the opportunity to "opt out" of receiving direct marketing or market research information.
This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Policy unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection. In some cases, when applicable, we will provide you with the opportunity to "opt in." This means we will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted.
