Your privacy is critically important to us. At Pima Vascular we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We will never share or sell your personal information submitted through this website.
- We don’t collect or store sensitive information on our website hosting servers.
Like most website operators, Pima Vascular collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Pima Vascular’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Pima Vascular’s visitors use its website. Pima Vascular also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses with website form submissions. Pima Vascular only discloses IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that form submission IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrator of the website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Pima Vascular’s websites choose to interact with Pima Vascular in ways that require Pima Vascular to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Pima Vascular gathers depends on the additional information provided through the “Message” or “Question” textarea on our website forms. In each case, Pima Vascular collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Pima Vascular. Pima Vascular does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Pima Vascular may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, Pima Vascular does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Pima Vascular discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Pima Vascular’s behalf or to provide services available at Pima Vascular’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Pima Vascular’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Pima Vascular will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Pima Vascular discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Pima Vascular believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Pima Vascular, third parties or the public at large. If you are a user of a Pima Vascular website and have supplied your email address, Pima Vascular may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new products/services, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Pima Vascular. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a website form, email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it without your personally identifiable information in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Pima Vascular takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
