ProHealth Care Privacy Policy & Disclaimer

Understanding our privacy policy and disclaimer

Personal information provided by you on our website is never given or sold to any other parties.

All emails sent to ProHealth Care via our website are "blind" — ProHealth Care staff are not informed of the e-mail address from which a message originates.

Information voluntarily given to us for purposes of prescription refills, pre-registration and e-mail notifications is used only to fulfill the purpose of the original transaction. Personal information provided to us is confidential and is stored on a remote SSL (secured socket layer) server. A login and password is required so that you — and only you — can access your information.

You will not be added to our mailing list unless you specifically ask. You will not receive e-mails from us unless we are responding to your e-mail or request, or unless you have specifically asked to have them sent to you.

Occasionally, online visitors may be asked to fill out a survey. A third party, hired by ProHealth Care, might also collect anonymous information about visits to our website. This is primarily accomplished through the use of a technology device, commonly referred to as a Web beacon or an Action Tag, which we place on various pages within our sebsite to allow the third party to collect anonymous information. The information is used only to make decisions about services or information offered by ProHealth Care. If you have any questions about our privacy policy, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Security information

ProHealth Care respects all of our patients' and website visitors' right to privacy and security and has therefore implemented state-of-the-art security features on our website.

You'll notice that many areas of our site that require you to provide personal information, such as medical or credit card information, are secure. Secure pages are noted by an https in the web address (URL) at the top of your browser page, as well as a locked lock icon at the bottom of your browser page. Double click on the locked lock icon to bring up our security certificate information. The security certificate guarantees the identity of the remote computer to which you are providing confidential personal information. In other words, it assures you that the site you are visiting and providing information to is in fact operated by ProHealth Care and/or its entities.

All credit card and other personal and medical information provided to us online is kept on an SSL (secure sockets layer) server. Sensitive information (credit card, medical, prescription refill and pre-registration information) is encrypted in transit to minimize the risk of theft and purged from the secure server as soon as a transaction is processed (within one business day). Non-sensitive information (such as customer's name and address and transaction number) is kept on file for tracking purposes. Our secure server is used solely for maintaining and hosting our Web sites.

Login and password

Some areas of the site may require an e-mail address and password. This protects your confidentiality and assures that other users cannot gain access to your personal information. You should never give out your password to other people. Choose passwords that use a combination of letters and numbers and that are not obvious to other people.
