Effective: April 13th, 2017
Alo Bariatrics (“ALO”) respects patient privacy and is committed to earning your trust and confidence. This privacy statement is provided to inform you of the information we collect from you when you visit our website and how we use this information. It is also to inform you of the choices you have regarding our use of and your ability to review and correct this information. Alo Bariatrics complies with NOM – 24 which is similar to HIPAA in the United States.
This website (bariatricsurgeries.com) collects only the personal information that you choose to provide, and ALO uses the information only for its legitimate business purposes. ALO will not sell, share, or otherwise distribute your personally identifiable information to third parties for their purposes (“personally identifiable information” means any information by which you can be identified, such as your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.).
How We Collect Information
In general, you can visit many of our Web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit us and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.
If you choose to provide us with information about yourself, such as your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address, we will respect the trust that you have placed in us. We will use the personally identifiable information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice; ALO collects only the personal information that you provide to us. However, if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to access certain services, offers, and content on our website.
ALO website may let you gain access to other websites. Some of the linked websites are not under the control of ALO. ALO does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, products, services and content of linked websites. Visitors should consult the other websites’ privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
Third-Party Use of Information
ALO will not sell, share, or otherwise distribute your personally identifiable information to third parties except as provided herein and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
ALO does not share your personal information with third parties for their marketing purposes. Personally identifiable information may occasionally be transferred to service provider third parties who act for or on the behalf of ALO, or in connection with the business of ALO, for further processing in accordance with the purposes for which the data was originally collected. We require that such third parties protect the information and, where appropriate, we will contractually require them to process data transferred only for the purposes expressly authorized by ALO. This website does not allow third party behavioral tracking.
Information Security & Data Breach Notification
We take reasonable precautions to ensure that any personally identifiable information you provide on this website is kept confidential and stored in a secure environment, and that only those personnel with legitimate business purposes will have access to this information. We implement and maintain reasonable physical, technical and administrative procedures to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized collection, use, disclosure, and disposal and request our service provider third parties to do the same. Even so, we cannot guarantee that data provided to us will not be subject to loss, alteration, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or destruction. It is important to be aware that all Internet transmissions are subject to security breaches and errors. You should take precautions in choosing the information you send to ALO. Despite our best efforts, no security measures are impenetrable, and transmissions over the Internet are not 100% secure or error-free. If there is a data breach, we will contact you within one (15) days via email upon the data breach being discovered.
Individual Redress Principle
We agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only the individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
