Plexus Technology Group, Inc. Privacy Statement
Plexus Technology Group regards the privacy and security of user information as a critical component of the use of the Plexus Technology Group website (sometimes called the “Website”) and the services provided through the Website (sometimes called the “Services”). The following privacy statement (“Privacy Statement”) discloses Plexus Technology Group’s policies on the collection, use, and disclosure of information on the Website.
Plexus Technology Group may collect both Aggregate Information and Personally Identifiable Information on the Website.
“Aggregate Information” is information that describes the trends, aggregate statistics, habits and other behavioral traits of the users of the Website as a group but does not indicate the identity of a particular user. Generally, this information is collected through “traffic data” and may entail the use of “Cookies”, “IP addresses” or other numeric codes used to identify a computer. The use of “Cookies” on the Website is explained in more detail below in the IP Address and Cookies section.
“Personally Identifiable Information” refers to information you voluntarily provide to Plexus Technology Group that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, e-mail address, company name, address, or telephone number.
In general, you may visit the Website without telling Plexus Technology Group who you are or submitting any personally identifiable information. However, it is necessary to provide Personally Identifiable Information to register for the Services, which information may include your name, mailing address, telephone, email address, health and patient information, and emergency contact information, among other things. Medical professionals may need to provide contact and patient information.
In some cases Plexus Technology Group uses suppliers to collect, use, analyze and otherwise process information on its behalf. It is Plexus Technology Group’s practice to require such suppliers to handle information in a manner consistent with Plexus Technology Group’s policies.
Any Personally Identifiable Information or other submission you provide to Plexus Technology Group must be true, accurate, current, non-misleading, and consistent and relevant for the purpose for which you are providing the information. In addition, you hereby covenant to Plexus Technology Group that you are 18 years of age or over, and have the authority to provide the information submitted to and through the Website.
When Plexus Technology Group collects Personally Identifiable Information from you through the use of the Services, Plexus Technology Group may extract some information about that transaction in a non-identifying format and combine it with other non-identifying information. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help Plexus Technology Group understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level.
The Website may use web beacons or other technologies to better enable the Website to provide better service. When a visitor accesses certain pages of the Website, a notice (which does not contain any Personally Identifiable Information) of that visit is generated which may be processed by Plexus Technology Group or by its suppliers or business partners. These web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If you don’t want your cookie information to be associated with your visits to these pages, you can set your browser to turn off cookies.
Use of Aggregate Information
Plexus Technology Group may use Aggregate Information to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our users and visitors, to measure user behavior regarding specific areas of the Website and use of the Services and to analyze how and where best to use resources. Without such data, Plexus Technology Group would not know which parts of the Website or Services are the most popular, and would not be able to change and update the content and Services appropriately. Plexus Technology Group may use Aggregate Information to help diagnose problems with its servers, to administer the Website, and for product and service monitoring and improvement. Aggregate Information and the reports and analyses for which it is used may be shared with third parties; however, in no event will such shared information identify you or determine anything personal about you.
Use of Personally Identifiable Information
Plexus Technology Group does not collect Personally Identifiable Information about you except when you specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis, as prompted by the Website in the circumstances described below.
(b) Express Inquiries: Plexus Technology Group will collect Personally Identifiable Information from you when you request additional information about a particular service listed on the Website, so that a Plexus Technology Group representative is able to contact you to provide the information you have requested.
(c) Use of the Services: We ask for Personally Identifiable Information when you use the Services to transfer or share medical information between doctor and patient. The intended purpose of the Website and the Services is to provide Personally Identifiable Information from patients to healthcare providers in connection with medical services such healthcare providers may be providing to such patients. Plexus Technology Group will use the Personally Identifiable Information to process and fulfill any requests made through the use of the Services and to perform the Services. Plexus Technology Group uses security techniques, including encryption and secure servers, to help protect against unauthorized access to transmitted Personally Identifiable Information.
(d) Service/Support Related Correspondence: If you register to use the Services, Plexus Technology Group may use your e-mail contact information to deliver technical support-related service information, as applicable, or other information that may be legally required to be provided with respect to the Website and/or the Services (collectively, “Mandatory Notices”). We will not send you unrelated promotional e-mails unless you have specifically asked to receive them, however, we may send service bulletins from time to time. If you register for the Services, you will not be able to unsubscribe from receiving Mandatory Notices (unless your access rights expire or are terminated), as these e-mails are considered part of the Services you have chosen.
(e) Correspondence: If you contact Plexus Technology Group, we may keep a record of that correspondence. If you communicate with Plexus Technology Group via e-mail, we may keep a record of your e-mail address, but we will not disclose your e-mail address except as permitted under this Privacy Statement.
For avoidance of doubt, you additionally specifically consent to Plexus Technology Group’s use and disclosure of the following types of medical and medical history information: hospital records; physician, nurse and doctor records; medical records held by records custodians; HIV or AIDS related information; mental health information and therapist notes and records; and substance abuse information and information from treatment facilities protected under 42 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 2.
By submitting Personally Identifiable Information you are specifically consenting to the disclosure and re-disclosure of such information as necessary to perform the Services.
Sharing of Personally Identifiable Information
Plexus Technology Group feels strongly that your Personally Identifiable Information should only be seen by you, unless you choose to share it with others. We do not sell, rent, license or exchange Personally Identifiable Information to or with a third party without your permission, except as permitted under this Privacy Statement. However, Plexus Technology Group will also share your Personally Identifiable Information with doctors, physicians and other health care providers in connection with their provision of medical services to you.
The Services are not intended for children under the age of 13. If we become aware that a user under the age of 13 has registered or is attempting to register with the Website, we will notify the user that he is not eligible to become a member. We will also expunge any Personally Identifiable Information from our records, barring that which is used to block the child from the Services.
Information collected by Plexus Technology Group is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. Although we use industry-standard practices to protect your privacy, we cannot guarantee, and you should not expect, that your Personally Identifiable Information or private communications will remain private under all circumstances. For example, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or stored information. We cannot and do not assume any responsibility or liability for any information that you submit to us or for your or a third party’s use or misuse of information transmitted or received during use of the Website.
You are responsible for taking all reasonable steps to ensure that no unauthorized person shall have access to your Plexus Technology Group password, if you are assigned a password to access a restricted area of the Website.
