WHAT INFORMATION DOES VAIL VALLEY MEDICAL CENTER COLLECT AND HOW IS THAT DATA USED?
Vail Valley Medical Center collects information from our users at several different points on our Website. We collect the following types of personal and non-personal information that are necessary for our legitimate business purposes, and we maintain appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of this information. We will not use this information other than as described below.

PERSONAL INFORMATION
Vail Valley Medical Center collects information about you for certain, legitimate purposes, including responding to your requests for information and processing your request to be added to our e-mail list. To the extent that you choose to register or make a donation on the Pink Vail Website, or provide other personal information, such information, including any credit card, financial and billing information that you provide, is used solely for the designated purpose, e.g., name, amount and billing information for a registration or donation. Financial and billing information is securely processed by third party vendors with whom Vail Valley Medical Center has contracts to process payments. The third party vendors may not use users' personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

Our Web server also collects:
• the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account);
• the date and time you access our service;
• the pages you visit;
• the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to us;
• the name and release number of the Web browser software you are using.

This information is collected automatically and is not linked to your personal identity. It is used in an aggregate way to help us improve our Website and make it more useful to you. This information may be shared with a third-party Web analytics company.

By submitting your information to Pink Vail's Website, you are consenting to our use of your data as described herein. If you do not consent, you should not use the Website.

NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
Certain non-personal information about visits is recorded by the standard operation of the Internet servers on which this Website is hosted. Non-personally identifiable information ("Aggregate Data") may be used for our business purposes, including, but not limited to, improvement of the design and content of the Website. Vail Valley Medical Center shall own such Aggregate Data and it may be shared with Vail Valley Medical Center third parties, e.g., a design consultant, and others for appropriate business purposes.

The non-personal information that we collect includes the following:
Cookies
Vail Valley Medical Center uses cookies on this Website. Cookies are files that Web browsers place on a computer's hard drive and are used to tell us whether users and visitors have previously visited our Website. They are used to make your experience easy and meaningful and to enable certain technical operations. Usage of a cookie is not linked to any personally identifiable information while on our Website.

When you visit our Website or open an e-mail or newsletter, we may send you a cookie. Cookies also allow us to track overall site usage and determine areas users prefer, enabling us to make your visit to our Website easier by recognizing you when you return and helping to provide you with a customized experience.

Log Files
Like many standard Website servers, our Web servers use log files. Log files include, but are not limited to, Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp and number of clicks. We may also keep track of how you got to our Website and any links you click on to leave our site. Log files are used to analyze trends, administer the site, track aggregated users' movement and gather broad demographic information.

IS INFORMATION ON CHILDREN COLLECTED OR USED?
Our Website is a general audience Website. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of thirteen and otherwise comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 as amended. To the extent that we later learn that any personally identifiable information has been inadvertently collected from a child under the age of thirteen, we will promptly delete such information.

IS INFORMATION SHARED WITH THIRD PARTIES?
Vail Valley Medical Center does not sell, share, or distribute any personal information to any third parties, other than as outlined herein. We may, however, employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include processing credit card payments, sending postal mail and email, analyzing data, and providing customer service. To perform these functions, these companies and individuals may have access to information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

We may also release information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce Vail Valley Medical Center's Terms and Conditions or other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Vail Valley Medical Center, our users, or others. This includes, but it is not limited to, exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection.

Security
With respect to this Website, Vail Valley Medical Center utilizes reasonable security measures that also comply with HIPAA to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the data and files under our control. Personal information we collect is stored in password-controlled servers, and we protect this information from loss or misuse, and from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. While we take reasonable efforts to guard personal information we knowingly collect directly from you, no security system is impenetrable and therefore, Vail Valley Medical Center does not make any absolute guarantees regarding your personal information. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to logout and close your browser when finished using a shared computer.

Communications from Pink Vail/Shaw Regional Cancer Center/Vail Valley Medical Center/Opt-In and Unsubscribe
