On the Internet
All web servers track basic information about each visit including, IP addresses, browser software details, time of visit, resources requested, and referring pages. None of this information can personally identify any specific visitor to this site. This information is provided for routine administration and maintenance purposes, a common practice of authors in designing web browsers and web servers across all web sites.
Cookies and Web Beacons
Only used where necessary, cookies store information about a visitor's preferences and history in order to better serve the visitor and/or present the visitor with customized content. We do not use these in most instances for booking of appointments.
In some cases we may ask for your email address voluntarily such as to sign up for our email list, register as a new patient, or request an online appointment. Email addresses are never shared with advertisers or anyone else. We don't send spam email and we don't purchase, give, or sell email addresses. We use the very strict double opt-in policy which requires a person to sign up for our list online as well as respond to a confirmation email from their email address to verify they indeed have ultimate control of the requesting address. This is for our protection as well as yours.
