Dietitians at Home is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to our website (http://www.dietitiansathome.com/). Information gathered on our website is used to monitor our effectiveness in providing relevant and credible health information, in answering questions, and in improving our website to better provide you with reliable and efficient health services.
Our website, http://www.dietitiansathome.com/, is developed by Dietitians at Home. We can be reached by mail at Dietitians at Home, 2003 W. Fulton St., Ste 300, Chicago, IL 60612. Our website manager can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This site recognizes and collects, when possible, the domain name of a visitor's server (for example, dietitiansathome.com or google.com). We do not automatically collect full email addresses of visitors to our website. The only way we obtain your name or email address is when you choose to provide this information to us. Examples of how you might provide us with such personal information include:
We use Google Universal Analytics to collect website data that allows us to get a better understanding of how our site visitors interact with our online content. If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website or download information, Google Universal Analytics will automatically gather and store certain information about your visit. This information does not identify you personally and is used in a general way to help us improve our website and tell us the number of visitors to our site each day.
Our web server automatically collects and records the following information:
In addition to Google Analytics, we also use a tool known as Inspeclet to review qualitative website visitor data. Much like Google Analytics, Inspeclet keeps data collected from visitors anonymous and the data collected is only used to improve your website experience.
If you do not want to receive email newsletters from Dietitians at Home, please follow the “unsubscribe” link included in the email that initiated your desire to no longer receive email communication. This should automatically remove you from our email contact reservoir. If you continue to receive unwanted email communication after performing this step, please contact our webmaster at email@example.com, and we will manually remove your name from our subscriber list.
You may browse many areas of our website, including our home page, without disclosing any personal information about yourself. Within these areas, we only collect and store the information that is automatically recognized by the web server, such as your IP address and files you request from the server.
We collect the personal data that you volunteer upon applying to schedule a home visit, survey, or other forms, or by email. Additionally, some areas of our website might be available only to certain persons and will require a login and password to access these areas. In order for us to properly serve you with the care you need, we collect a variety of information, including demographic information, as well as health care coverage, and referral information.
As described above, we sometimes collect anonymous information from visits to our site to help us provide better customer service. For example, we measure visitor activity on our website, but we do so in ways that keep the information anonymous. We use the information that we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different areas of our site and to help us make our site more useful to visitors. This includes analyzing these logs periodically to measure the traffic through our servers, the number of pages visited and the level of demand for pages and topics of interests. The logs may be preserved indefinitely and used at any time and in any way to prevent security breaches and to ensure the integrity of the data on our servers.
Dietitians at Home is committed to its mission of serving the healthcare needs of individuals, families, and communities. We will live up to the privacy standards outlined in this policy because we are obligated to act in good faith, to fulfill the organization's mission of service, and to act in accordance with our core values of compassion, equality, excellence, partnership, and stewardship. Meeting these obligations compels us to be honest, to act in the public's best interests and to protect the privacy and confidentiality of all information provided to us, as outlined in this policy.
Dietitians at Home welcomes your questions and comments about privacy. Please send your comments via email comments to our Web Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, amputation rates are higher in people with diabetes. The good news, though, is that rates have decreased thanks to better foot care and the use of diabetic shoes.
