On behalf of Anesthesia Assisted Medical Opiate Detoxification, Inc. (referred to as “AAMOD,” “us” or “we”), welcome to AAMOD’s family of websites, Opiates.com, Rapiddetox.com and DomusRetreat.com (collectively, the “Sites”). We recognize that your privacy is important. This Policy discloses the privacy practices for the Sites, and also covers how personal and other information that we receive or collect about you is treated. Please read the information below to learn the following regarding your use of the Sites.
If you have any questions about this Policy, please feel free to contact us by e-mail at [email protected]
IMPORTANT: BY USING THE SITES AND/OR OFFERINGS AVAILABLE ON THIS SITES, YOU GIVE YOUR CONSENT THAT ALL PERSONAL DATA THAT YOU SUBMIT MAY BE PROCESSED BY US IN THE MANNER AND FOR THE PURPOSES DESCRIBED BELOW. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, DO NOT USE THE SITES.
1. Types of Information We Collect
In order to better provide you with information about our chemical detoxification services and treatment, we may collect two types of information about our users: Protected Health Information and Aggregate Information.
Protected Health Information (“PHI”): This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. Examples of PHI may include your first and last name, email address, and telephone number. You may also voluntarily provide other PHI, whether or not specifically requested by us, by voluntarily supplying your own details through the “Contact Us” form; the “Chat” feature located on the Sites; or by posting publically viewable comments on the Site. You agree that we may collect any PHI voluntarily supplied by you, whether or not we have requested it. You must not submit any PHI relating to a third party which you do have permission from such third party to provide to us. We do not knowingly collect any information relating to third parties which you do not have permission to provide.
When you engage in certain activities on our Sites, such as sending us a message through the “Contact Us” form, we will ask you to provide certain PHI.
Aggregate Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our Sites and what other Sites may have directed you to us. This information, which is collected in a variety of different ways, is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the WebSite’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that points to the site you just came from, which URL you go to after visiting our Sites, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address.
2. How We Collect and Use Information
4. Release of Information
We will not sell, trade, or rent your PHI to others. We do provide some of our service offerings through contractual arrangements made with affiliates, service providers, partners and other third parties (“Service Partners”). We and our Service Partners may need to use some PHI in order to perform tasks between our respective sites, or to deliver services to you. For example, we use Service Partners to assist us in delivering our electronic newsletters and communications to you; collecting PHI voluntarily submitted by you through our “Chat” feature; and to analyze Aggregate Information.
We will choose Service Partners who adopt and promote strong privacy policies. However, the use of your PHI by our Service Partners is governed by the respective privacy policies of those providers and is not subject to our control.
Other than our Service Partners, we do not allow third parties to collect PHI or Aggregate information about you or your online activities when you use our Sites.
PHI or medical records will not be released to requesting third parties without your written authorization except in certain circumstances when required by law. Occasionally we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide PHI to the appropriate governmental authorities. In such cases, we will disclose PHI upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.
5. Updating and Correcting Information
We believe you should have the ability to access and edit the PHI that you have provided to us. You may change any of your PHI in your account online at any time by e-mailing us at [email protected]
Please include your name and email address when you contact us.
We encourage you to promptly update your PHI if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, some information, such as past transactions, logs of technical support calls, or other information may not be deleted. In addition, it may be impossible to completely delete your information without some residual information because of backups.
6. Your California Privacy Rights
Upon your request, California Civil Code Section 1798.83, known as the “Shine the Light” law, requires us to provide to you (a) a list of your personal information, if any, which we have disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year, and (b) the names and addresses of those third parties. You may make such a request once per calendar year, and we will provide the information to you free of charge. Please send any requests made pursuant to this section to us by e-mail at [email protected] . However, as defined under Section 1798.83, we do not currently share any personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
7. User Choices on Collection and Use of Information
We may, from time to time, send you e-mail and/or newsletters regarding information or services that we feel may interest you. Only AAMOD (or agents working on behalf of AAMOD and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these notifications. If you do not want to receive correspondence from us, you can “opt-out” by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each correspondence.
You also have choices with respect to cookies, as described above. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies some parts of our Sites may not work properly in your case.
8. Security of Your PHI:
At our Sites you can be assured that your PHI is secure as we strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of your PHI. For example:
— We work hard to ensure that the data we collect is reliable, accurate, complete and current. We use PHI only for the purposes for which it was collected or to comply with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or document retention requirements.
— We limit access to PHI only to specific employees, Service Partners, contractors and agents who have a reasonable need to come into contact with your information.
— Additionally, we also employ a number of physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect PHI. Our secure servers and our data centers are protected by encryption, and our servers reside behind firewalls and password protection.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your PHI, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through the Sites cannot be guaranteed.
You must be at least 18 years old to have our permission to use our Sites. Our policy is that we do not knowingly collect, use or disclose PHI about minor visitors.
