3. HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION
MDVIP does not sell your personal information, personal health information or sensitive information to nonaffiliated third parties for their business purposes, nor do we share your information, except as permitted by law, as described in this Privacy Policy or otherwise with your consent.

We may share information about you to third parties for MDVIP’s business purpose, such as with agents, contractors, service providers or affiliates of ours, who help us operate the Website, assist with MDVIP’s marketing, conduct business on our behalf or help us complete a service you requested, such as processing your credit card payment. When we share information for a business purpose, we do so only to the extent required for our business purpose and only as permitted by relevant law. Before doing so, we enter into a contract with the third party that describes the purpose for which the information is shared, requires the recipient to maintain the confidentiality of that confidential information and to not use it for any purpose except performing the contract or as permitted by law.

We may also share personal information with third parties if you have directed and authorized us to do so in connection with Services MDVIP provides to you or on behalf of its affiliated physicians.

4. IP ADDRESSES, COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGY

a. IP Addresses:

MDVIP maintains internal logs for Internal Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer each time you access the Internet. Your IP address does not contain personally identifiable information. MDVIP collects IP addresses in order to conduct system administration, report aggregate information, conduct site analysis, and to detect improper use of the site. MDVIP sometimes uses IP addresses to identify the location of your computer based on publicly available and third-party information and, if located, to market to you through Internet marketing, mail or call campaigns, or online targeted, interest-based advertising.

b. Browser Cookies:

MDVIP uses “cookies” for authentication, other types of security, User log-ins, enabling our services collecting analytics information, marketing our Services to you, sending you targeted advertising for our Services, optimizing our Website, and personalizing and customizing your web experience. By placing a small file known as a “cookie” in your browser, the web servers operated by MDVIP and its third-party service providers can remember and distinguish your web browser software over time. This is necessary in order to enable the functions described above. If you disagree with this use, you should turn off or disable “cookies” on your browser or device. If you decline cookies, the Website may not work properly or as it was intended.

c. Other Technical Information We Collect:

In addition to using browser cookies to remember your browser, MDVIP also may use other technologies such as pixels, local shared objects (such as “Flash cookies”), and HTML5 local storage to collect information and remember your device. Some of the technical information we collect is the type of browser you use (such as Google Chrome or Internet Explorer or Safari), your Internet protocol (“IP”) address, the name of your ISP, the version of your operating system, the dimensions and resolution of your display, your referrer URL (which is the URL for the website that you were viewing prior to visiting the Website), how you were directed to the Website, which specific pages you access on the Website, how long you view each page, the time and date you access our Website, and any other interaction you have with the Website or MDVIP. We use your IP address and may use other third-party geolocation services to determine the physical location of your computer or device.

Most popular Internet browser applications will allow you to configure the browser so as not to accept cookies. However, setting your browser to reject cookies may, in certain instances, prevent you from taking full advantage of the Website and its capabilities, or cause some features of the Website to function improperly or slower.

The Website uses various third-party services, including Google Analytics. You can consult the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy for more information on how Google Analytics uses the data it collects. Google utilizes the data collected to track and examine the use of the Website, to prepare reports on its activities and share them with other Google services. Google may use the data collected on the Website to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. To more fully understand how Google may use the data it collects on the Website, please review “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps”, (located here or any successor URL). If you would like additional information regarding the security and privacy practices of Google Analytics, please review the materials provided by Google here.

5. EMAILS
MDVIP uses email forms to allow Users to ask questions about MDVIP, our Services or programs. While we make reasonable efforts to protect the personal information that you share with us, it is important to note that such email messages are unsecured. Please consider the information you choose to include in any email you send. Should you choose to send your information via email, you do so at your own risk. We recommend that if your communication is sensitive or contains personal information, you may want to send it another way.
If you choose to correspond to us via email, we reserve the right (but not the obligation) to retain the content of your email messages as well as your email address or other personal information, and our responses.

6. PERSONAL INFORMATION PROVIDED AS PART OF USER CONTENT
On occasion and under certain circumstances, MDVIP may, in its sole discretion, offer Users the opportunity to submit content to the Website. You should consider what information you choose to share in the content that you submit. If you include personal, health or sensitive information in the content that you provide to MDVIP for public postings to the Website, including any bulletin boards, forum posts, etc., such information may be made available to third parties using the Website. MDVIP does not edit or otherwise remove such information from User content before it is posted on the Website. If you do not wish to have your information made available in this manner, you must remove any such information from the content before posting. Your contact information (which may include, without limitation, a Username and email address) may be included with any content that you post via the Website. MDVIP is not liable for any damages caused or incurred due to information that you have made available in the foregoing manner.

7. LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
The Website may contain links to non-MDVIP websites. Links to other websites are provided to you for information and convenience only and do not constitute an endorsement or recommendation by MDVIP. We are not responsible for, and this Privacy Notice does not apply to, the privacy practices of those sites or of any companies that we do not own or control. We make no representations or warranties regarding the correctness, accuracy, performance, security, privacy or quality of any content, software, service, or application found at any Linked Site. We encourage you to seek out and read the privacy policy and terms of use of each website that you visit.

8. SECURITY
MDVIP takes reasonable precautions to protect your information. We seek to store personal information, personal health information and other sensitive information in a secured manner and to transmit it via a secure Internet channel. For example, when you enter sensitive information, such as a credit card number, MDVIP uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to encrypt the transmission of that information. However, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and MDVIP cannot guarantee that the information submitted to, maintained on or transmitted from its systems will be completely secure. MDVIP is not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the site by any Users or third parties.

Remember that you are the first and best defense against unauthorized access to your information. Please do not share your User account information with others and take the necessary steps to assess whether your personal information is being transmitted to its intended recipient in a reasonably secure manner.

9. YOUR CHOICES ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

a. Inquiries Concerning the Collection and Deletion of Your Personal Information:

We understand that you may have certain questions about MDVIP’s access and use of information that we have collected. Under some circumstances, you may be able to opt out of our continued collection or use of your personal information, and/or seek access to or deletion of personal information that we have collected about you in the past.

There are circumstances when MDVIP will not be able to comply with such requests. For example, we may deny a request if we determine, in good faith, that we should not comply because: doing so would violate or conflict with MDVIP’’s legal obligations, including, but not limited to, the preservation and non-disclosure of medical or personal health information under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) or other laws; the information is the privileged, proprietary or confidential information of MDVIP or someone other than the person making the request; the identity or authority of the person making the request cannot be confirmed; compliance with the request would compromise the privacy or legal rights of others; the burden or expense of responding would be disproportionate to the requesting individual’s privacy risk; the information is commercially necessary for us to complete transactions or provide services that the User requested; or to do so would impede MDVIP’s detection, correction or prevention of any security incident or intentional or non-intentional interference with the Website or Services.

Additionally, even if you opt out, we may still collect and use non-personal information regarding your activities on our Website and/or information from the advertisement on third-party websites for non-interest-based advertising purposes, such as to determine the effectiveness of the advertisements.

If you have any questions or concerns about MDVIP’s collection or use of your personal information, wish to opt out of further collection of your personal information or request deletion of personal information presently in MDVIP’s possession, please contact us using one of the methods set forth below. Upon receiving your request, we will endeavor to respond to your request in a reasonable time.

10. CHILDREN
The Website is intended for a general audience and is not intended for use or view by children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect information about children or sell products or services to children. Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we will not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13.

11. GOVERNING LAW
Except where otherwise noted, this Privacy Notice and use of MDVIP’s Website or Services shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida.

12. “DO NOT TRACK” DISCLOSURES
California and Delaware law require MDVIP to indicate whether it honors “Do Not Track” settings in your browser concerning targeted advertising. How servers should respond to the “Do Not Track” signal is not yet the subject of consensus in the Internet community. As a result, the Website does not change its behavior when it receives the “Do Not Track” signal.
