Web Privacy Policy

Palo Alto Health Sciences is committed to protecting the privacy of users of “Freespira.com” or any website owned, operated, licensed or controlled by us (“Site”). This policy describes how we gather and use information about visitors to our Site.  By using the Site, you acknowledge and consent to our practices described below.

If You Choose to Send Us Your Email Address

You may use our Site without disclosing to us any personal information. “Personal information” means information that identifies you or could reasonably be used to identify you. Examples of such information include your name, address, phone number, or email address. If you choose to provide us with your email address and other personal information by sending us email or using our contact form, we will use that information to respond to your message. All email addresses may be automatically inserted into our address list. You may be deleted from the list at any time by contacting us and requesting that your information be removed from our list.  Palo Alto Health Sciences does not share your personal information gathered on the Site with any third parties other than with a Palo Alto Health Sciences agent, except: 1) in accordance with the terms of this privacy policy, 2) when we have your permission, or 3) if disclosure of any information is required by law, regulation, court order, subpoena, or by an appropriate government authority.

Palo Alto Health Sciences’s Use of Cookies

Palo Alto Health Sciences, in common with many website operators, may use standard technology called “cookies” on our Site. A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website’s computers and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.)

Other Information Collected by Palo Alto Health Sciences

To maintain statistics about how the Palo Alto Health Sciences Site is used, we collect certain pieces of information from each visitor. This information includes the name and version of the operating system on the visitor’s computer, the name and version of the visitor’s browser, which page on the website the visitor is currently reading, and if the visitor was sent to the current page by some other page on the web, the universal resource locator (URL) of the referring web page is recorded. None of this information identifies you or provides us with any personal information about you.

Registered Users

If and when we were to provide certain areas of this Site accessible only to registered users, to register you would be required to provide us with certain personal data. We will use this personal data to review and verify your registration information. We may use your personal data to send periodic transactional, marketing, or promotional notices to you or notify you of any changes to this Policy. You can always opt-out of receiving marketing or promotional communications from us by sending us an email stating you would like to op-out.

Resume Submission

If your personal data is submitted through the Site when applying for a position with Palo Alto Health Sciences, your personal data will be used solely for the purpose of evaluating and accepting you for the position. We may retain your personal data for a period of time, but only for the purpose of considering your application for current or future positions at Palo Alto Health Sciences or as necessary to comply with the law. This information may be shared within Palo Alto Health Sciences as well as with third parties contracted by us to assist Palo Alto Health Sciences with talent acquisition related activities.

Surveys

We may provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys and opinion polls on our Site. If you participate, we may request certain personal data from you. Participation in these surveys or polls is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and email address) and demographic information (such as city, state or country). These surveys help us serve you better and improve the usefulness of our Site. We may use third parties to conduct these surveys or polls.

Testimonials

We may post testimonials on our Site from time to time. With your consent we may post your testimonial along with your name.

The Site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Palo Alto Health Sciences is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. When you connect to a site that is linked to Palo Alto Health Sciences, we encourage you to read the privacy statements of all those sites. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Site.

Children

The Site is not intended for use by children under the age of 13. Palo Alto Health Sciences does not knowingly collect or use any personal information from children in this age group without permission of the child’s parent or legal guardian. Palo Alto Health Sciences does not knowingly allow children to register with us, communicate with us, or use any of our online services. If you are a parent and become aware that your child has provided us with information, please contact us, and we will work with you to address this issue.

Changes to This Policy

This policy is effective as of November 1, 2014. Palo Alto Health Sciences may, in its sole discretion, update this policy at any time and from time to time, by publishing the revised policy on the Site. By your continued use of the Site, you consent to the terms of the revised policy.
