The Clinic does not engage in any form of medical treatments or medical diagnosis online. If you send us an email or make a phone call, this does not establish a doctor-patient relationship, even if we answer it. The Clinic reserves the right at its own discretion to decline consultations.
We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully. We collect information about you for two reasons: 1) to process your order, and 2) to provide you with the best possible service. We will not email you or pass your information to another company, partner, or agent unless you have given us your explicit consent. In addition, you may notify us if you do not wish to receive any further marketing information from us. The type of information we will collect about you includes your name, address, phone number and email address. We use the information for the following reasons:
- To enable us to process and verify subscriptions;
- To enable us to verify user credentials in order to maintain reasonable security;
- To provide our editors with information that is useful in developing new features and services for our users;
- To allow us to potentially vary advertising based on user preference, usage preferences, and demographics;
- To enable us to develop and improve the features, content, and services available through the Site;
- To contact you.
When you receive an email notification from us, you will be given the option of receiving recurring informational/promotional emails from us and/or third parties. You may opt out of receiving these emails in the manner specified in the email. We will endeavor to ensure the information we hold will be accurate and up to date. Each user of the site voluntarily provides his personal data and agrees that his personal data can be stored and processed in accordance with the provisions of the existing Act for protection of personal data for the use of the clinic. We are obliged not to change or release Personal Information unless: a) you have given us your explicit consent; b) providing the information to employees and/or subcontractors of the clinic for the purpose of processing of each request; c) upon the availability of official request for providing such information from legally authorized public bodies; d) obligation to comply with the applicable law for provision of personal information. You may request to receive information about what data we store about you, by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each user has the right to access and to update his personal information as per the Act for protection of personal data. Each user has the right to request in writing the administrators of personal data to delete, amend or block personal data, the processing of which, does not comply with the requirements of the law, by sending a request on the above-mentioned email.
We collect information about you in the following ways:
- We also collect other information that you voluntarily provide to use, e.g., through responses to surveys, questionnaires, and the like.
- IP Address. We store the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer when you visit our Site. This information is only used to create broad demographic summaries of where our users come from, e.g., we know what percentage of users come from Europe or Asia. Our use of the IP addresses, however, does not identify the actual users of the Site.
We herewith inform you that we may provide information about you that does not allow you to be identified (“Aggregate Information”) to third parties. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of users of our Site and the activities they conduct while on our Site.
How We Handle Your Personal Information. Security.
Your information is stored on the americanspinalclinic.com Site server. We use procedural and technical safeguards to protect your personal information against loss or theft as well as unauthorized access and disclosure to protect your privacy, including encryption, “firewalls” and Secure Socket Layers. We treat data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company. However, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet.
You are responsible for all actions taken with your User ID (email) and password. Therefore, we do not recommend that you disclose your Site password to any third parties. If you choose to share your User ID (email) and password or your Personal Information with third parties, you are responsible for all actions taken with your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your Personal Information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password.
By accessing and using the Site, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions, fully accepting that they may be amended or updated without notice. You accept responsibility for periodically reviewing these terms and conditions and agree to be bound by any future modifications or amendments as posted. If you do not abide by these terms and conditions, you are not authorized to use the Site.
You acknowledge and agree that any information presented to you through this site contains proprietary information that is protected by copyrights, trademarks, service marks or other proprietary rights and laws, applicable intellectual property and other laws. The reproduction and copying of texts, data, images and graphics, including their storage and use on optical or electronic data media, is only allowed with the prior written permission of the author. The use of data, including any input into online services, databases or websites by unauthorised third parties, and any alteration of or tampering with information, is prohibited. Downloading and printing for personal, non-commercial use is permitted.
The author declines all responsibility for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information presented. Claims for liability against the author related to damages of a material or conceptual nature, caused by the use or non-use of the information offered or through the use of inaccurate or incomplete information, are strictly excluded, insofar as no intentional or grossly negligent fault can be proven against the author. All offers are subject to confirmation and are made without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right to alter, amend, delete or suspend or cease publication of parts of the pages or the whole offer without separate notice. Unauthorized attempts to upload information or change information on this website are strictly prohibited and may be punishable.
For direct or indirect hyperlinks or live references to other websites which exist outside of the area of responsibility of the author, liability can solely be invoked where the author is aware of the contents and it would have been technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent the use of any illegal content. Please note that CalErin Group does not control and cannot guarantee the relevance, timeliness, or accuracy of these outside materials.
The author expressly states here that, at the time the hyperlinks were created, no illegal content was identifiable on the hyperlinked sites. The author has absolutely no influence over the present or future design, content and authorship of the linked/hyperlinked pages. He therefore expressly distances himself from the content of all linked/hyperlinked pages which have been modified following the creation of the links. This statement is valid for all links and hyperlinks in the Internet offers as well as for third-party contributions to any visitors books, discussion forums, hyperlink lists or mailing lists created by the author, and to all other forms of database which have external write access. The persons making such websites available are solely liable for any illegal, inaccurate or incomplete content, and in particular for any damage arising from the use or non-use of the information offered; such persons, rather than the person simply creating links to the published material, should be contacted in this regard.
