I. PERSONAL INFORMATION.
A visitor can access and browse our entire site at any time without providing any personal information. We do not collect information that would personally identify you unless you choose to provide it.
In addition, Summit County Public Health does not share any personally identifiable information of any individual with any third party unrelated to Summit County Public Health, except in situations provided for in our Notice of Privacy Practices [see the Notices of Privacy Practices here], those situations where we are legally obligated to share information, or if so directed by you through a proper authorization. Our Notice of Privacy Practices may be updated at any time without notice to you.
Our website contains forms through which users may request information or supply feedback to us. In some cases, telephone numbers, email addresses or return addresses are required so that we can supply requested information to you, and in other cases, correct names and addresses are required to process credit card payments.
After you fill out a form, we may contact you with follow-up information. We use the information provided by you for our internal purposes such as setting up appointments that you request, contacting you if the communication from you reasonably requires us to contact you, or for data aggregation to evaluate Summit County Public Health. We do not provide any information supplied on our web forms to any outside organization for any reason (other than where we may be required to by law, or as necessary to process credit card information).
Occasionally, we may survey visitors to our site. The information from these surveys is used in aggregate form to help us understand the needs of our visitors so that we can improve our site. We generally do not ask for information in surveys that would personally identify you. If we do request contact information for follow-up, you may decline to provide it. If survey respondents provide personal information (such as an email address) in a survey, it will be viewed only by employees of Summit County Public Health relevant to the survey. Aggregate survey data may be shared to contractors of Summit County Public Health to improve our website.
"Phishing" is a scam designed to steal your personal information. If you receive an email that looks like it is from Summit County Public Health asking you for your personal information, do not respond. We will never request your password, user name, credit card information, or other personal information through email.
User Name and Password
In the event you access any Service requiring a User Name and Password, you are solely responsible for keeping such User Name and Password strictly confidential.
II. NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
Summit County Public Health collects non-personal information such as website usage, traffic patterns, site performance and related statistics based on our tracking of your visits to the website.
Our web server automatically collects the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computers that access our site. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you access the Internet. It is not personally identifiable information because many different individuals can access the Internet via the same computer. We may use this information in aggregate form to understand how our site is being used and how we can better serve visitors.
Please note that although such information is not personally identifiable, we can determine from an IP address a visitor's Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.
III. SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
We have applied encryption to the forms fields that ask you to input personally identifiable information on our website. Once the information is sent to our site, it is kept in secure databases where it is only available to employees of Summit County Public Health. While we sometimes ask for credit card numbers or certain service transactions, and either pass them on to a credit card processing service or process them manually, we do not store credit card numbers online.
Summit County Public Health periodically reviews and modifies, where appropriate, its security policies and procedures. We use reasonable care to protect your personally identifiable and confidential information provided by you to our site. Summit County Public Health has in place a security program that seeks to mitigate this risk substantially.
