We respect your privacy interests and so operate this site by these principles:
Except for authorized law enforcement investigations or other facially valid legal processes, we will not share any information we receive with any outside parties. At no time will we sell or broker any of the information we receive from you to any third parties without obtaining your prior authorization. We will use it only for our own internal purposes and, where appropriate, to contact you directly.
You may use the Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates web site without disclosing personally identifiable information. We want to be clear that we will not obtain such information about you unless you choose to submit it to us. For example, if you email us your comments, that identifies your email address. If you request a consultation, a limited number of practice administrators and health care providers will see this information and use it where appropriate.
We take reasonable steps to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of personally identifiable information that you may provide. You should understand, however, that electronic transmissions via the Internet are not necessarily secure from interception and so we cannot guarantee the security or confidentiality of such transmissions.
The web server of the Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates web site collects and saves the default information customarily logged by World Wide Web server software. Our logs contain the following information for each request: date and time, originating IP address and domain name (the unique address assigned to your Internet service provider's computer that connects to the Internet), object requested, and completion status of the request. We use these logs to help improve our service by evaluating the "traffic" to our site in terms of number of unique visitors, level of demand, most popular page requests, and types of errors. These logs may be kept for an indefinite amount of time, used at any time and in any way necessary to prevent security breaches, to ensure the integrity and proper use of the data on our servers, and to evaluate or improve the services we provide to users.
THESE LEGAL NOTICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE
