Collection of your Personal Information

Compass Health may collect information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Compass Health. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by Compass Health for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Shared Care Record Web site.

Compass Health  encourage you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from the Shared Care Record web site so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information.

Use of Cookies

The Shared Care Record website uses "cookies" to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Shared Care Record website pages, or register with the Shared Care Record site or services, a cookie helps Compass Health to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Practice website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Practice features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Shared Care Record services or websites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Compass Health secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Compass Health secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Compass Health will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Compass Health encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Compass Health is protecting your information.
