Your privacy is important to Borrego Health. Borrego Health is committed to maintaining the privacy of personally identifiable information. Borrego Health has developed this privacy policy to inform you of its policy about collecting and using such information on its Website.

 

I. Information Borrego Health gathers

 

Borrego Health collects and uses certain information on its Website. This information includes your IP address, information about your browser (i.e., whether you are using Netscape, Internet Explorer, etc.), and information about your Internet Service Provider (i.e., AOL, PacBell). An IP address (Internet Protocol 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 Borrego Health in any way, or in connection with any other information, to identify you personally.

Borrego Health 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/e-mail address), Borrego Health will not use this information to contact you unless you have specifically stated that we may do so.

This information is not linked to specifically identifiable individuals. This type of information will be used to aid Borrego Health in adding information to its Website that will be useful for site users and that will improve the performance of our Website. Any personally identifiable information which you voluntarily and knowingly submit to Borrego Health 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, for example, 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.

If Borrego Health decides to change the type of information it collects, how we use it, or under what circumstances, if any, we may disclose it, we will post these changes on our homepage so that our users will be aware of these changes.
