This privacy statement describes and applies to the information we collect from you when you visit any Sun Health website, how we use that information, and under what circumstances we disclose data. It will also give you more information about how to manage the personal information that you provide to us through this site. This statement applies only to information you provide to us online while visiting or using our website, and applies equally to all Sun Health websites.
It does not apply to information we have obtained through other means.
1. The Information We Collect
When you use any a Sun Health website, we receive and collect certain information based on the action you take on our website and which website you are visiting.
We only collect personally identifiable information required for the consented action taken when the website user opts in, and only use it for that intended purpose.
If you chose to opt in for an activity for a Sun Health brand, you are not added to other brands under the Sun Health umbrella. If you want to be added, you must opt-in to each brand individually.
Your consent for a specific intended action will not give implied consent for other activities within that same brand; you also must opt-in for each alternative use. Where possible, the opt-in process may offer those alternatives for consideration.
Automatically Collected Information
Some information is automatically received and sometimes collected from you when you visit a Sun Health website, including some or all of the following items: the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, including the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using and the IP address of your Internet Service Provider; the type and version of Internet browser software you use and your operating system; the type and version of your media player(s); the date and time you access our site, the length of your stay and the specific pages, images, video or forms that you access while visiting the site; the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site, and if applicable, the search engine that referred you and any search strings or phrases that you entered into the search engine to find this site; and demographic information concerning the country of origin of your computer and the language(s) used by it. We use this information to monitor the usage of our site, assess its performance, ensure technological compatibility with your computer, and understand the relative importance of the information provided on our website. We may also use this data to conduct statistical analyses on visitors’ usage patterns and other aggregated data.
Information Collected via Cookies
Information You Actively Submit
For browsing on our website, we neither require nor collect User Information that personally identifies you; such as your name, email address, billing address, shipping address(es), phone number and credit card information.
In the following instances, however, we do need you to actively submit User Information: when you want to (i) make an online donation; (ii) sign up for an event or class; subscribe to receive news, articles or blog posts; fill out a contact or tour form; or (iii) send an email message to us or otherwise provide online comments, criticisms, suggestions or feedback.
Sun Health uses a secure, third-party payment processing vendor for online donations. Donor information is not shared with any other organization and remains completely confidential.
Sun Health websites are not for healthcare services nor intended to give specific advice. Medical information transmitted through our website is not protected under confidentiality laws that protect physician-patient communications. Please do not send us personal medical information. In addition, while Sun Health attempts to prevent unauthorized access to our website files, such access may occur.
Personal Information about Children
Sun Health websites are intended for use by adults, and strictly prohibit use by those under the age of sixteen (16). We are not able to obtain parental permission for use by minor children and therefore prohibit their use. In the event that we discover that a child under the age of 16 has violated this prohibited activity and provided User Information to us, we will delete the child’s User Information from our files to the extent technologically possible.
