Any information submitted by users of the Sites is for the exclusive use of Overlake Medical Center and Clinics as well as our contractors that are involved in the operation of Overlake Medical Center and Clinics’ activities and website operations. Overlake Medical Center and Clinics is the sole owner of the information collected on the Sites. We only have access to information you voluntarily give us via email, signup forms, contact forms, registration forms, or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or license this information to any third parties. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization unless the third party provides services on our behalf (such as email newsletters or class registration) or if it is required by law (such as to comply with a subpoena or legal process).
Overlake Medical Center and Clinics will take reasonable precautions to protect your personal information. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. We also protect your information offline. Only employees or contractors who need the information to perform a specific task (for example, developing educational resources) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers in which we store personally identifiable information are maintained in a secure environment.
Emails that you send through the Sites may not be private or secure. We cannot provide assurances that emails will not be accessible to third parties. Please do not send us health information or sensitive information via email.
