How Do We Collect Your Personal Information?
You may visit our Websites without telling us anything about yourself. If you contact us and choose to provide personally identifiable information, such as your name, e-mail address, telephone (“Personal Information”), in order to receive information from us, we will use that information and may share it with other companies and/or individuals (e.g., our partners, consultants, and service providers) for the purpose for which you submitted it to us.
From time to time, our Websites may be configured to collect domain information. This data enables us to become more familiar with which users visit our site, how often they visit and what parts of the site they visit most often. Pentec uses this information to improve our Websites. No personally identifiable information is gathered in this process. This information is collected automatically and requires no action on your part.
How Do We Use Your Personal Information?
When you contact us through the “contact us” section of our Websites, you may be given the option of receiving recurring informational/promotional newsletters or other emails from Pentec. In order for you to subscribe to these emails, we may ask for your contact information. You can unsubscribe from Pentec emails at any time by simply following the directions included at the bottom of each email or as described in the "Updating Your Information" section below. If you have difficulties with our newsletters or emails that you cannot address as described above, please see the contact information in the “For Additional Information” section below and let us know about your issue.
In some circumstances, information we may use or disclose may also constitute Protected Health Information (“PHI”) pursuant to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”). In these circumstances, we will treat your PHI in accordance with our HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices (www.pentechealth.com/hipaa-compliance), which applies to our delivery of health care or other HIPAA-related services to Pentec patients.
Do We Disclose Any Personal Information to Outside Parties?
Disclosures to Third Parties Assisting In Our Operations. Pentec may share your Personal Information under confidentiality agreements with other companies that work with, or on behalf of, Pentec to provide products and services, such as a cloud hosting company, marketing firm or identity verification service. These companies may use your Personal Information to assist Pentec in its operations. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.
Disclosures Under Special Circumstances. We may provide information about you to respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process or governmental regulations, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or as otherwise required by law. In such circumstances, we will take appropriate measures to ensure that the requester understands the sensitive nature of the Personal Information that they may receive.
Automatically Collected Information and Anonymous Information
Each time a Visitor comes to the Websites, Pentec collects some information to improve the overall quality of the Visitor’s online experience.
Aggregated Data. Pentec collects aggregate queries for internal reporting and also counts, tracks, and aggregates the Visitor’s activity into Pentec’s analysis of general traffic-flow at the Websites. To these ends, Pentec may merge information about you into aggregated group data. In some cases, Pentec may remove personal identifiers from Personal Information and maintain it in aggregate form that may later be combined with other information to generate anonymous, aggregated statistical information. Such anonymous, group data may be shared on an aggregated basis with Pentec’s affiliates, business partners, service providers and/or vendors; if it does so, Pentec will not disclose your individual identity.
Web Server Logs and IP Addresses. An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is a number that automatically identifies the computer or device you have used to access the Internet. The IP address enables our server to send you the web pages that you want to visit, and it may disclose the server owned by your Internet Service Provider. Pentec may use IP addresses to conduct Website analyses and performance reviews and to administer the Websites.
Cookies and Web Beacons. Periodically, some pages on this Website may use “cookies,” which are small files that the site places on your hard drive for identification purposes. These files are used for site registration and customization the next time you visit us. You should note that cookies cannot read data off of your hard drive. Your web browser may allow you to be notified when you are receiving a cookie, giving you the choice to accept it or not. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser. By not accepting cookies, some pages may not fully function and you may not be able to access certain information on the Websites. Information that we collect through cookies includes (i) the name and version of the operating system on the Visitor’s computer, (ii) the name and version of the Visitor’s browser, (iii) which page on the Site the Visitor is currently reading, as well as clicks and time spent on a particular page, (iv) if the Visitor was sent to the current page by some other page on the web, the universal resource locator (“URL”) of the referring web page, and (v) geolocation of the Visitor’s computer or device. Some of the Site’s web pages may use web beacons in conjunction with cookies to compile aggregate statistics about Site usage. A web beacon is an electronic image (also referred to as an “action tag,” “single-pixel,” or “clear GIF”) that is commonly used to track the traffic patterns of users from one web page to another in order to maximize web traffic flow and to otherwise analyze the effectiveness of the Website. Some web beacons may be unusable if you elect to reject their associated cookies.
Opting Out of Receiving Electronic Communications
With your permission, we may send notifications, promotions, or other information via email or text message (“Communications”). You may choose to stop receiving Communications by indicating your preference in your account profile or settings. Please note that certain Site-related Communications are necessary for the proper functioning and use of the Site (e.g., to verify the phone number associated with your account) and you may not have the ability to opt out of those Communications.
The security of your data is very important to Pentec. Pentec and our service providers have implemented appropriate security measures preventing your Personal Information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. However, you should know that no website operator, including Pentec, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information. While Pentec has endeavored to create a secure and reliable website for users, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from the Website or via e-mail cannot be guaranteed.
