1. Collection of Personal Information from Site Visitors
Genesis Rehab Services may collect or track (1) the e-mail addresses of visitors that communicate with Genesis Rehab Services via e-mail, (2) information knowingly provided by the visitor in online forms, registration forms, surveys, e-mail, the “Contact Us” section of the Site, and other online avenues (including, but not limited to, demographic, business profile, and personal profile data), (3) the home server domain names, e-mail addresses, type of client computer, files downloaded, search engine used, operating system, and type of Web browser of visitors to the Site, and (4) aggregate and user-specific information regarding which pages Site visitors access.
Genesis Rehab Services may place Internet “cookies” on visitors’ hard drives. Internet cookies save data about individual visitors, such as the visitor’s name, password, user-name, shopping cart, screen preferences, and the pages of a site viewed by the visitor. When the visitor revisits the Site, Genesis Rehab Services may recognize the visitor by the Internet cookie and customize the visitor’s experience accordingly. Visitors may decline Internet cookies, if any, by using the appropriate feature of their Web client software, if available.
Genesis Rehab Services also may use Web bugs to gather, store, and track certain information related to your visit to and activity on the Site. A Web “bug” is a file object, which can be a graphic image such as a transparent one pixel-by-one pixel graphics file, which is placed on a Web page or in an e-mail message to monitor user activity. A Web bug can gather, for example, the IP address of your computer, the time the Web page was viewed, and the type of browser used.
When a visitor performs a search within the Site, Genesis Rehab Services may record information identifying the visitor or linking the visitor to the search performed. Genesis Rehab Services may also record limited information for every search request and use that information to solve technical problems with the services available directly or indirectly in connection with the Site and to calculate overall usage statistics.
2. Use of Personal Data Collected
Personal data collected by Genesis Rehab Services may be used by Genesis Rehab Services for many reasons, for example, for editorial and feedback purposes, for product development, for content improvement, for fulfillment of a requested transaction or recordkeeping, for marketing and promotional purposes, for a statistical analysis of users’ behavior, or to customize the content and layout of the Site. Aggregate data on visitors’ home servers may be used for internal purposes, and individually identifying information, such as names, postal and e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and other personal information which visitors voluntarily provide to Genesis Rehab Services may be added to Genesis Rehab Services’ databases and used for future calls and mailings regarding Site updates, new products and services, and upcoming events.
3. Disclosure of Personal Data to Third Parties
Aggregate data on visitors’ home servers and individually identifying information, such as names, postal and e-mail addresses, and phone numbers, may be disclosed or distributed to another party with which Genesis Rehab Services enters or reasonably may enter into a corporate transaction, such as, for example, a merger, consolidation, acquisition, or asset purchase, or to a third party pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other form of legal process, in response to a request by or on behalf of any local, state, federal, or other government agency, department, or body, whether or not pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other form of legal process, or if determined by Genesis Rehab Services in its sole judgment that such disclosure or distribution is appropriate to protect the life, health, or property of Genesis Rehab Services or any other person or entity.
While Genesis Rehab Services may undertake efforts to see that any third party to which Genesis Rehab Services shares, rents, sells, or otherwise discloses personal data is under a contractual obligation to use the personal data solely for the purposes for which the data was disclosed. Genesis Rehab Services is not responsible for, and will not be liable for, their conduct, actions, omissions, or information handling or dissemination practices.
