Please read this policy carefully, and feel free to contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions regarding its contents.
This website is operated by INOVIA Vein Specialty Center. Its content has been reviewed and approved by representatives of INOVIA Vein Specialty Center, who assume all responsibility for the accuracy of information contained herein.
Types of Information Collected
In connection with your use of our site, we ask for and may collect a variety of information from and about you in different ways. For example, when you complete the contact form, we ask for and store your name, email address, phone #, and other identifying contact data. Please do not share even limited symptom data via this website, as this may be considered Personal Health Information (“PHI”) and covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”).

We may combine your personally-identifying information, and information about your preferences and activities, with those of all or a particular group of our users to prepare collective profiles of our users and their activities. For example, we may track the number of our users who view certain pages or use certain features in a particular geographic region. Such information and other information we derive from individual users’ information allows us to continue to grow and provide you with quality fellow users through more accurate marketing and advertising on our website.
Disclosure of Information
We will not disclose your personal information to anyone else unless compelled by law: We may disclose information to fulfill certain legal and regulatory requirements or if we believe, in good faith, that such disclosure is legally required or necessary to protect others’ rights or to prevent harm.

Please remember that you play an important role in security as well. After you have finished using our site, you should exit your browser and clear your browser history, so no unauthorized persons can see it. Remember that any information you voluntarily disclose online in any news or message postings, discussion groups or chat rooms may be collected and used by others without your permission. Furthermore, if you provide any information to parties who operate websites that are linked to or from our site, different rules may apply to their collection, use or disclosure of your personal information. We encourage you to review these sites’ policies before revealing any sensitive or personal information.
Regardless of the precautions taken by you or by us, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk.
