Online privacy

Medaca Health Group has physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to help protect personal information provided through online transactions and activities.

Personal information and online security

When you visit our Medaca Health Group website, you are anonymous unless you choose to identify yourself. You are not required to provide personal information to use our websites, unless a feature requires it. For example, if you are a physician in our network and would like to login to your account, you will need to provide identifying information. In these cases, we have physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in place to help protect your online personal information from unauthorized use or improper access. These safeguards may include:

  • Passwords and personal identification numbers (PINs): Clients/Physician’s in the Medaca Health Network, and end users ‘can access their account information online only after providing identifying information and a password or PIN. This information is unique to you, and is an important first step in protecting your information online.
  • Medaca uses a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to protect personal information transmitted to us electronically. SSL transmitted information is encrypted, or scrambled, to prevent unauthorized reading of the electronic communication.

Online data collection tools: Improving and evaluating website functionality and effectiveness

Medaca Health Group, like many organizations, sometimes gathers data regarding how visitors explore our websites - information about the number of new and repeat visitors, where on the website a visitor explores, how long they visit, and similar details. We may also track how many users visit advertisements promoting our products and services that appear on other company websites. All such information is collected in an aggregate form and is used to improve our websites’ performance and functionality, create a better experience for our visitors and measure the response to web marketing campaigns.

Links to websites outside of Medaca Health Group

To provide website visitors with more information that may be helpful to them, some of our websites contain links to other websites that are not affiliated with or maintained by Medaca. We do not monitor the privacy practices of these third-party sites, and do not have authority over them. As a result, we do not assume any responsibility for the data collection policies and procedures of these sites.
