Information Collected from You:
When visiting our website, certain information can be collected either electronically or by technology without you actively providing the information. Our website tracks your unique identifier (IP address) which identifies where information is coming from and where information should be sent. We also automatically gather information about the areas you visit on our website and our system collects operational information about the technology you use. We collect information to understand what areas of our website are most popular, which areas may require improvement, and what technologies are being used by our visitors. This information helps us to update and improve our website. We also use this information for security purposes, to detect and to block security breaches and to provide you with a safe online environment.
The only way we obtain personally identifiable information (i.e., name, e-mail address, telephone number, etc.) is when you provide it voluntarily by sending us a message, filling out an application, or when making the following requests for information:
On a Find a Physician request
On a Contact Us submission
On a request for more information or submitted question in any of the services sections
The information you choose to provide will be used to respond to your inquiry. Holy Cross works hard to protect your personal information. We use both technical and procedural methods to maintain the integrity and security of our databases. We also protect information by using an Internet firewall. The Internet firewall is a security mechanism that allows us to restrict access to our network from the Internet, allowing approved traffic in and out according to Holy Cross.
