Prestige Healthcare Resources, Inc. (“Prestige”) is committed to safeguarding your online privacy, whether you are a nurse, client, administrator or general visitor to our Web site. As a result, we have made the commitment not to disclose any of your personal information to third parties without your consent (subject to the limited circumstances set forth below). Please read the following policy to understand how we collect personal information from you, use the information, and protect the information. Since this policy may change from time to time, we recommend that you refer to it regularly.
Personal information that you give us
There are various areas on our Web site where we either require or permit you to transfer personal information voluntarily. We use this personal information only for the specific purpose specified at the time you input such information. For example, by using various features of our Web site we may collect your name, address, social security number, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, licensure, certifications, education, and/or employment history, dates available to travel, eligibility to work in the United States, legal history, other occupations and any comments related to this data.
Information that we derive independently from your use of the site
Aside from any information you may actively disclose to us, there is other, less obvious, information which we might obtain from you. We may use such information for internal purposes such as to improve the content of our Web pages and/or to customize the layout of our pages for each individual according to their preferences. In addition, we may track your account history regarding your participation on the Web site.
Our system automatically collects information about the areas visitors frequent on our Web site. We may use this aggregate information to understand how our members as a group use the services we provide so that we can improve our Web site. Furthermore, we may share such aggregate statistical information with our partners, affiliates or other outside companies, but in doing so, it is not our practice to disclose individual names or other personal information. Some examples of how we aggregate such information are as follows:
- Cookies: A Cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies are widely used on the Internet and have become an industry standard. Cookies enable user registration and login and personalization, among other things. Although a cookie cannot, in and of itself, identify you, it can identify your computer. Your browser is most likely set up to accept cookies automatically. If you would like to disable this feature you may do so by adjusting the options or preferences in your browser. However, by doing so, you will lose some of the conveniences of our Web pages.
- IP addresses: An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you begin service with an Internet Service Provider. We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of our site. Each time you log onto our site and each time you request one of our pages, our server logs your IP address. Although we log your session with us, we will not normally link your IP address to anything that can enable us to identify you. However, we can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, users or others.
- Computer information: We query your computer automatically for information about the computer or operating system you are using such as the baud rate of your modem or error messages you may have received. We may do so in order to fit our services to your individual needs and to diagnose problems you may be having with our Web site. We use a unique identifier in the form of a user ID to give you access to special areas of our Web site intended for registered users.
- Geographic location: We may gather information about your geographical location by determining where your computer is located. We do this in order to provide either localized service or to provide faster service by sending your server localized content.
How to access and change your user information
We encourage you to correct and update information related to your application by sending an e-mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon your request, we will provide you with any unique identifying or personal information that we maintain about you and will make any appropriate changes you provide us.
When we may be forced to disclose
Links to other sites
Any link to a page which displays a URL of a non-Prestige site in the address window of your browser or which indicates that it is “powered by” an entity other than Prestige, is a link to a site outside of our service. Please note that we cannot guarantee your privacy on such other Web sites and do not have control over their privacy policies or content. Your correspondence or business dealings with any third party providers, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such providers.
We currently use the Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) protocol to safeguard your information, during online transactions. We believe SSL to be a safe encryption method, but we are always looking for even more secure encryption methods to safeguard information sent online. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure and we will not be held liable should a third party illegally obtain your personal information. While we have made a great effort to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
Your acceptance of these terms
If you have any comments on this policy, please contact us at (866) 997-9844. We’ll investigate and take any appropriate actions to ensure this policy is followed.
