We respect all our patients and prospective patients’ privacy. Unless required for law enforcement or by statute, we will not share any information you supply to us via this Site to any other outside unaffiliated entity without your consent. However, we may provide information to third parties that does not allow you to be identified or contacted. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of users of the Site and the most frequented resource pages.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to work with third parties who provide services that may include, but are not necessarily limited to, website hosting, data analysis, hosted e-mail, and other administrative and technical services that assist us in maintaining the Site. In the event that we elect to work with third parties for these purposes, we reserve the right to share information you supply to us with such third parties, but only to the extent necessary for the provision of such services.
Security of Information
We have implemented reasonable technology and security policies, rules and measures to protect the data that resides on our servers; however, because no security system is impenetrable or 100% secure, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers.We cannot guarantee the security of the means by which information is transmitted between your computer and our servers or our service providers’ servers, whether through the Site, by e-mail, or otherwise.
We want each Site visitor to find useful medical information and learning about the services of Washington University Urogynecology and Reconstructive Surgery physicians. In working toward that goal, we count our visitors and keep track of which pages our visitors select throughout the Site. To do this, we must use software called a “cookie.” The “cookie” maintains numbers in aggregate form, and does not obtain personal information about any of our visitors.
This information helps us know what sections of our Site are visited frequently, so we can enhance those sections and ensure the information is timely.
