What information do we collect?
All information, except for some collected automatically (see below), is purely voluntary. Release and New Patient Forms are kept on a need-to-know basis, as determined by us and you. Contacting us is a way for us to communicate with you, and all of the information contained therein will not be disclosed unless deemed appropriate by us or by our disclosure policies below. Comments on the site are considered public, and we reserve the right to deal with them as we deem appropriate. Some other data, such as IP Addresses, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself) may be collected when submitting a comment to help detect spam. Contact us if you have any questions.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Automatic Data Collection:
We may use third parties to automatically collect data. This may include analytics tools that are governed over by separate privacy policies. These can be disabled by disabling cookies (which may break some sites) or by using tracking protection. Check with your web browser’s developer for more information on how to change your privacy settings.
Usage of Third Parties:
We may employ the use of third parties for hosting, contacting, processing, and other tasks. We see no privacy issues with these third parties, and, if one arises, we will take steps to keep issues from arising. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us.
Third Party Links and Content:
We display content and link to Third Parties. These are regulated by their own terms, and should be reviewed before using them. We take no ownership of any third party-hosted content but our own.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Sharing of data to third parties:
We will never share your data with third parties except in the following circumstances:
When we have your permission to do so.
When there is an emergency.
When we are required, by law, to do so.
When data is sent through trusted third parties for processing (for example, when submitting a form on our website, third parties may be used to collect and give information to us).
How we protect your data:
We take precautions when we process your data. One of these is the use of SSL, which encrypts the connection between you and the server, greatly reducing the risk of interception by malicious parties. Be aware that no system is 100% secure and breaches may occur.
Minors under age 13:
Our services are not intended to be used by minors under the age of 13. Any data collected on them will be considered authorized by the minor’s parent(s)/guardian(s). Contact us if you have questions.
GDPR and California Notices:
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union regulation for Internet privacy and data protection. Considering we are located in Montana and, while we will try to keep your information safe, we do not see any need to take special precautions to meet EU regulations. Likewise, we do not need to comply with any California regulations.
We may update this policy at any time without notice. The current version will always be available on the website.
