Privacy Policy

Updated as of January 15, 2024.

We are committed to the care and improvement of human life. Part of that commitment includes protecting your Personal Information (defined below). We maintain information confidentiality and comply with applicable regulatory requirements.

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) covers our online privacy practices with respect to use and/or disclosure of information we may collect from you when you access or use our website (“Website”), Portals (as defined below), and any other websites or applications we may provide that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, our “Services”). The Services are provided by the Website owner identified on the Website homepage (“we,” “us,” or “our”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected through other means, such as by telephone or in person or by other third parties that are not part of our Services. Please review our privacy practices, email our privacy team or write to us at the address below if you have any questions.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to information that would be considered “Protected Health Information” under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”). East Lake Pediatrics’ use and disclosure of Protected Health Information is set forth in the East Lake Pediatrics Notice of Privacy Practices, which can be requested by calling our compliancy officer at (727) 372-6760.

Information Collected through the Website

Our Website may include pages that permit you the opportunity to provide us with Personal Information about yourself. As used in this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means any information that may be used, either alone or in combination with other information, to personally identify an individual as defined by applicable state laws as noted below. We collect certain information, including Personal Information, from and about our Website users in three ways:

Directly from you;
Directly from our web server logs; or
Cookies and web beacons.

Information Provided by You

We and our service providers collect Personal Information through online forms to provide certain features of the Services to you. For example, if applying for a job through the Website, we may request you to fill out a form with information such as your name, e-mail address, phone number, and work experience. If you do not provide the information required to submit the forms, we may not be able to provide you with related features and services. In some cases, you may have the opportunity to enter into our secure forms any content that you choose. You are responsible for such content and we reserve the right to use such content as part of our Services.

Web Server Logs

When you access or use our Services, we may track information to administer our Services and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include, without limitation:

Your Internet protocol address;
The kind of browser or computer you use;
Number of links you click within our Services;
State or country from which you accessed our Services;
Date and time of your visit;
Name of your Internet service provider;
Third party websites you linked to from our Services; and
Pages or information you viewed on our Services.

We use this information to analyze and improve our Services, monitor traffic and usage patterns for information security purposes, and to help make our Services more useful.

Cookies and Web Beacons

A “cookie” is a small text file that may be transferred to your computer’s hard drive to personalize our services for you and collect information regarding usage of our Services. Each computer is assigned a different cookie that contains a random, unique identifier. Our Services may use two different types of cookies: a “session” cookie, which is required to track a user session, for example, and which expires shortly after the session ends, and a “persistent” cookie, used to track unique visits to the Portal (defined below), as well as how the user arrived at the Portal (for example, through an email link or from a referral link), and the type of user (patient, provider, consumer, etc.). So that users are not counted twice, this cookie can “persist” anywhere from six months to two years.

Your browser software can be set to warn you of cookies or reject all cookies. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the “Help” section of the toolbar. If you reject our cookies, this may disable some of the functionality of our Services and you may not be able to use certain services.

Cookies, to the best of our knowledge, cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a website, a cookie helps the website to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases website navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, on our Site to help us analyze the traffic and user activity on our Site. Please see Google’s Privacy and Terms for more information on how Google Analytics processes Personal Information. By using a browser plugin provided by Google, you can opt out of Google Analytics for the web.

We may display content from third-party platforms or services that allow you to view their hosted content directly from the pages of our Site, and interact with them. For example, we use YouTube, a video sharing and social media platform provided by Google LLC, to embed video content on our Site. Google’s Privacy Policy explains how YouTube/Google treat your personal data and protect your privacy when you provide your personal data in connection with your access and use of their services.

Some of features of our Services (such as social media widgets that allow you to share content) may use cookies or other methods to gather information regarding your use of the Services, and may combine the information in these cookies with any of Personal Information about you that they may have. The use of such information by a third-party depends on the privacy policy of that third-party.

A “web beacon,” “clear GIF,” “web bug,” or “pixel tag” is a tiny graphic file with a unique identifier that is similar in function to a cookie, but would allow us to count the number of users that have visited certain pages or screens of our websites, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, web beacons can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened. In contrast to cookies, which may be stored on your computer’s hard drive, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on pages or screens. We may use web beacons in providing the Services.

We reserve the right to share aggregated site statistics monitored by cookies and web beacons with our affiliates and partner companies. We treat the information of everyone who comes to our Services in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We do not honor Do Not Track (DNT) requests.

To determine whether any of our third-party service providers honor DNT requests, please read their respective privacy policies.

Control of Cookies

Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default. However, you can remove or reject cookies in your browser’s settings. Please be aware that such action could affect the availability and functionality of the Site. For more information on how to control cookies, check your browser or device’s settings for how you can control or reject cookies.

Geolocation Data

We do not collect precise information (e.g., GPS data; latitude and longitude) concerning the location from which you access our Services, but we collect information on your region or postal code to help us gather information useful for improving the relevance of our content and securing our Services.

Third Party Advertising

We may allow third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you access or use our Services. These companies use non-personally identifiable information regarding your access and use of our Services and other websites, such as pages viewed, date and time of your visit, and number of times you have viewed an ad (but not your name, address, or other personal information), to serve ads to you on our Services and other websites that may be of interest to you. In the course of serving advertisements to our Services, our third-party advertiser may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. In addition, we or other third-party advertiser, may use web beacons to help manage our online advertising. This allows us or a third-party advertiser to learn which banner ads bring users to our Services.

We use Google Ads, the Google Marketing Platform and related marketing and advertising services provided by Google, LLC in connection with our Site and general corporate advertising and marketing operations for purposes of, among other things, online advertising, which includes remarketing, re-engagement, or similar audience and advertising and marketing features. You can control the information Google uses to show you ads by changing your Google Ad Personalization Settings. Additionally, you can learn more about Google ad personalization and additional controls available to you by visiting Google Ad Help.

We use Twitter Ads, an advertising and analytics service provided by Twitter, Inc., in connection with our Site to run advertising and marketing campaigns on Twitter. You can opt out of Twitter’s interest-based advertising through an applicable opt-out mechanism specified by Twitter.

We use Facebook Ads and related services provided by Facebook, Inc. in connection with our Site to run advertising and marketing campaigns on Facebook. Facebook’s Cookie Policy explains how Facebook uses data to show you ads and how you can control usage.
