Adventist Health is a faith-based not-for-profit system of health care providers which takes your privacy and security very seriously. While we are not subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act, we do have significant privacy and security protections that we have put in place for our patients and employees. These protections are designed utilizing the HIPAA privacy and security rules and privacy best practices to ensure your personal information is protected.
How Personal Information Provided By You May Be Used.
- Address your requests for information or services; or
- Respond to your inquiries and send you administrative communications.
Disclosures to Third Parties Assisting In Our Operations. Adventist Health may share your PII under confidentiality agreements with other companies that work with, or on behalf of, Adventist Health, to provide products and services. These companies may use your PII to assist Adventist Health in its operations. These companies do not, however, have any independent right to share this information.
Disclosures Under Special Circumstances. We may disclose your PII to respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process or governmental regulations, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We may also disclose your PII if we believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or as otherwise required by law.
Automatically Collected Information and Anonymous Information
Each time a visitor comes to the Website, Adventist Health collects some information to improve the overall quality of the visitor’s online experience.
Aggregated Data. Adventist Health collects aggregate queries for internal reporting and also counts, tracks, and aggregates the visitor’s activity into Adventist Health’s analysis of general traffic-flow at the Website. Adventist Health may also remove personal identifiers from PII and maintain it in aggregate form that may later be combined with other information to generate anonymous, aggregated statistical information. Adventist Health may share, publicly or privately, anonymized or aggregated information from the Website. For example, we may match our user information, such as gender, age, and interests, with data of these third parties to help develop additional products and services to offer through our or the third parties’ websites. If Adventist Health shares aggregate information, it will do so in a manner that no individual can be identified.
Web Server Logs and IP Addresses. An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is a number that automatically identifies the computer or device you have used to access the Internet. The IP address enables our server to send you the web pages that you want to visit, and it may disclose the server owned by your Internet Service Provider. Adventist Health may use IP addresses to conduct website analyses and performance reviews and to administer the Website.
Adventist Health takes measures it believes are reasonably designed to protect the PII it receives from you from unauthorized access, use and alteration. We believe, however, that a persistent attacker with sufficient resources would be able to defeat our security measures. Therefore, we provide no guarantee that your PII will remain secure.
Response to “Do Not Track” Signals
Some Internet browsers include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” signals. Since uniform standards for “Do Not Track” signals have not yet been adopted, Adventist Health does not process or respond to “Do Not Track” signals.
Children’s Privacy Protection
Under Age 13
Adventist Health understands the importance of protecting children’s privacy in the interactive online world. The Website is not designed for, or intentionally targeted at, children 13 years of age or younger. It is not our policy to intentionally collect or maintain information about anyone under the age of 13. No one under the age of 13 should submit any PII to Adventist Health and/or the Website, and if we learn that we have collected or received PII from a child under 13, we will delete that information. If your child has sent us personal information and you would like it removed, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting removal.
Under Age 18
Minors under 18 years of age may request removal of any PII that they have provided to Adventist Health through this Website by sending an e-mail to email@example.com requesting deletion. Please note that, while we make reasonable efforts to comply with such requests, deletion of your PII does not ensure complete and comprehensive removal of that data from all systems.

To make such a request, you may contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
