Hartford HealthCare Website Privacy Promise

(Last Revised March 14, 2014)

Your privacy is important to us. This Privacy Statement describes the guidelines Hartford HealthCare uses for protecting information you provide to us during your visit to this web site, subject to the provisions contained in our "Terms of Use" and our "Notice of Privacy Practices".

The Information We Collect and How We Use It

Certain information is automatically collected when you visit our site. You may have read about "cookies," nuggets of information that are placed by a web site in a storage place on your own computer. The types of information we collect with cookies include the name of your Internet service provider, the web site that referred you to us (if any), the date and time our web site was accessed, the page or pages you visited, and your IP address. Our cookies do not contain information that is, in itself, personally identifying

In addition, we receive and store any information you enter on our web site or give us in any other way. For example, if you send us an email or fill out a form, you are transmitting the information that appears to you in the form or the message. This will typically include information like your name, address, email address, the kind of request you are making, and any other information necessary to fulfill your request. You never transmit any personally identifying information that you do not enter yourself. This information is used internally only for the purpose of fulfilling the request or for contacting you directly. The information we collect may be used for several purposes, for example, to improve the content of our web site, track activity on our site, develop new products or services, or respond to inquiries. We also allow access to our database by third parties that provide us with services only for the purpose and only to the extent necessary to provide you with those services. There may also be occasions when we are legally required to provide access to our database in order to cooperate with investigations or other legal proceedings. In those instances, the information is provided only for that purpose.

While your individual information is protected as outlined above, we reserve the right to use aggregated, anonymous data about our visitors as a group for any business purpose, such as, without limitation, analyzing usage trends.

Please note that Hartford HealthCare will not intentionally share the contents of any email feedback or questions with any third party. However, due to the nature of electronic communications, we cannot and do not provide any assurances that the contents of your email will not become known or accessible to third parties. Please refer to our "Terms of Use" concerning additional policies relating to emails.

Other than as outlined above, Hartford HealthCare will not sell, trade or rent any personally identifying information we may collect on this web site to any third party without your permission.

WE URGE YOU NOT TO PROVIDE ANY CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

ABOUT YOU OR YOUR HEALTH TO US VIA ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION.

IF YOU DO SO, IT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
