Collection of your Personal Information
When you choose to provide it, Smart-ER™ collects personal information, such as your name, e-mail address, physical address or phone number. Smart-ER™ also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your location and preferences.
Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by Smart-ER™. This information can include: IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring URLs. This information is used by Smart-ER™ for the operation of our service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of our website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Smart-ER™ public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others.
Smart-ER™ encourages you to review the privacy statements of any website we link to so that you can understand how they collect, use and share your information. Smart-ER™ is not responsible for the privacy statements or content on websites outside of Smart-ER™.
Use of your Personal Information
Smart-ER™ collects and uses your personal information to deliver services that you have requested. Smart-ER™ also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Smart-ER™ and its affiliates. Smart-ER™ may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
Smart-ER™ does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Smart-ER™ may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Smart-ER™ may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you e-mail or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Smart-ER™, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Smart-ER™ does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
Smart-ER™ keeps track of the web pages our customers visit within Smart-ER™, in order to determine what Smart-ER™ services are the most popular. This data may be used to deliver customized content within Smart-ER™ to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Smart-ER™ will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Smart-ER™ or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Smart-ER™; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Smart-ER™, or the public.
Like most companies, Smart-ER™ uses “cookies” on its website to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. The cookie itself does not contain any personally identifying information although it will enable the site to relate a user’s use of the site to information that the user has specifically and knowingly provided to Smart-ER™. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to indicate to the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Smart-ER™ pages, or register with Smart-ER™ site or services, a cookie helps Smart-ER™ to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Smart-ER™ Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use Smart-ER™ features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of Smart-ER™ services or websites you visit. Unless you disable/decline cookies, you agree that we can place cookies and related technologies on your device.
Security of your Personal Information
Smart-ER™ secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Smart-ER™ secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information is transmitted to other websites, it is protected from interception through the use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption.
