Security of Personal Information
We endeavor to protect the Personal Information you entrust to us and treat it securely by placing appropriate technical, physical and administrative security measures to protect the confidentiality of your Personal Information and to protect the Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, and which provide a level of security appropriate to the risk represented by the processing and the nature of the data to be protected. In the event we share your Personal Information with third parties, we ensure that those third parties have effective controls to protect the privacy of your Personal Information, and we restrict the ability or manner in which a third party may use or disclose your Personal Information. We also require such third parties to have appropriate security measures to protect Personal Information.
While we employ security technologies and procedures to assist safeguarding your Personal Information, no system or network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure and we do not guarantee its security. The safety and security of your Personal Information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the sites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. You are solely responsible for all uses of your password, even if such uses were not authorized by you. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your password, you are responsible for contacting us immediately to request deactivation of your password.
Except as required by law, SeaCare is not responsible for any damages or liabilities relating to any such security failures. Transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk (for example, the internet and mobile networks cannot be guaranteed to be secure). If you have any questions about security on our sites, you can contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Consent to Transfer, Processing, and Storage of Personal Information
We may transfer your Personal Information between SeaCare offices in Canada and the U.S. or to third parties as described above and that may be located in various countries around the world. By using our sites and Services or providing any Personal Information to us, where applicable law permits, you consent to the transfer, processing, and storage of such information outside of your country of residence, where data protection standards may be different.
Retention of Personal Information
We will retain Personal Information as needed to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected and any other permissible, related purpose. We will retain and use Personal Information as necessary to comply with our business requirements, legal obligations, resolve disputes, protect our assets, and enforce our agreements.
Patient/Client Data Storage for Health Professional
If you are a Patient or Consumer, you acknowledge that your use of our Services is solely through your Health Professional and that SeaCare will share Personal Information with your Health Professionals for the purposes of facilitating the provision of Services to you on behalf of your Health Professional. Your use of the sites is also subject to your Health Professionals’ privacy policies; please contact your Health Professionals if you have any questions about their policies or terms.
If you are a Health Professional, you agree that, with respect to other users’ Personal Information that you may obtain or transmit through your use of your SeaCare account or through a SeaCare communication or transaction, you will only use such information as necessary for transactions or activity under your SeaCare account. Health Professionals remain responsible for compliance with the Laws applicable to their collection and handling of Personal Information and other user information, including personal health information.
Like many websites, SeaCare uses automatic data collection tools, such as cookies, embedded web links, and web beacons, to collect traffic and usage patterns, and to help us personalize the Services. These tools collect certain standard information that your browser sends to our sites. Examples include your browser type and the address of the website from which you arrived at our website. We automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser, including IP addresses, cookie information, browsing history, and the SeaCare website pages requested. We utilize this information so that we can improve the SeaCare website, our product selection, and the Services.
Cookies may also collect information about:
- Your IP address. This is a number automatically assigned to your computer or device whenever you connect to the Internet. Among other things, the IP address allows web servers to locate and identify your device for the purpose of facilitating online communications between you and other parties you engage with on the Internet.
- Clickstream behavior. This includes, for example, the pages you view and the links you click. These tools help make your visit to our website easier, more efficient, and more valuable by providing you with a customized experience and recognizing you when you return.
Some web browsers may give you the ability to enable a “do not track” feature that sends signals to the websites you visit, indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked. This is different from blocking or deleting cookies, as browsers with a “do not track” feature enabled may still accept cookies. No industry standard currently exists on how companies should respond to “do not track” signals, although one may develop in the future. SeaCare’s site functionality is not currently able to recognize and respond to “do not track” signals. To learn more about “do not track” signals, visit https://www.allaboutdnt.com.
Your Choices and Selecting Your Communication Preferences
We give you the choice of receiving a variety of information related to our Services. You can manage your communication preferences through the following methods:
- By updating your communication preferences in your account settings when logged in to your SeaCare account.
- By following the instructions included in each promotional email from us to unsubscribe from that particular mailing.
- By emailing, chatting with or calling our Customer Success team at email@example.com.
- By stopping push notices through your mobile device settings.
These choices do not apply to service notifications or other required communications that are considered part of certain Services, which you may receive periodically unless you stop using or cancel the Services in accordance with our Terms of Service.
By using our site, Services, or otherwise providing Personal Information to us, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use. For example, if we learn of a security system breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice on our websites, by sending an email or otherwise contacting you.
