Virtual First Inc, its subsidiaries and its affiliates (“Virtual First”) are committed to protecting the privacy and security of their users. Virtual First’s goal is to provide you with a personalized website experience that delivers the information, resources and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. In order to achieve this goal, Virtual First sometimes collects information during your visits to understand what differentiates you from other users of Virtual First websites. Virtual First operates under the following set of privacy principles:
The only personal information Virtual First obtains about individual users to its websites is that supplied voluntarily by users.
In cases when Virtual First may need personal information to provide users with customized content or to inform them about new features or services, users are explicitly asked for that information.
Personally identifiable information provided by users (name, e-mail or home address, etc.) will only be disclosed to agent’s action on Virtual First's behalf subject to an agreement ensuring Virtual First's privacy principles and will not be disclosed to non-agent-third party unless users choose that Virtual First may do so, or unless required by law, in conjunction with a government inquiry, or in litigation or dispute resolution.
Only statistical non-personal information about Virtual First website users as a group (usage habits, demographics) may be shared with any sponsor, advertiser or partner of Virtual First, unless an appropriate confidentiality agreement is in place.
The following discloses Virtual First’s information gathering and dissemination practices for Virtual First websites. Additional terms and conditions, if any, regarding the collection and use of your information may also be provided to you before you sign up for a particular service. Here you will learn what personally identifiable information of yours is collected, how and when Virtual First might use your information, how Virtual First protects your information, who has access to your information, and how you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
What Information is Collected
Virtual First collects certain information from its users in three ways: (a) from Virtual First web server logs, (b) with cookies and (c) directly from the user.
(a) IP Addresses (Server Log Information)
An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the internet. All computer identification on the web is conducted with IP addresses, which allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. Virtual First collects IP addresses in order to conduct system administration, report aggregate information to affiliates, subsidiaries, sponsors, advertisers or partners, and to conduct site analysis.
(c) Web Analytics
Virtual First may use Google Analytics to understand Virtual First's site usage. Site usage information is used to help design, develop, and support Virtual First website. To the extent Virtual First uses Google Analytics Google receives and stores Virtual First's contributed site usage information (such as pages accessed), but it does not receive any individually identifiable or sensitive information as a part of this process. If you do not want data collected by Google Analytics, you can use the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on available on Google's website.
(d) Registration (User-Supplied Information)
Virtual First website registration systems require users to give Virtual First contact information such as their name and e-mail address, and demographic information such as organization and/or role. The user's contact information is used to contact the user when necessary. Users may choose (opt-in) to receive future mailings; see the choice/opt-in section below. Virtual First uses this data to tailor the user's experience at Virtual First website, showing the user content that reflects their stated preferences. This information may be shared with affiliates, subsidiaries, sponsors, advertisers or partners on an aggregate basis, but personally identifiable information will not be disclosed without the user’s prior consent.
Services (User-Supplied Information)
If you sign up for a particular service Virtual First may collect personally identifiable information such as contact information (e.g., name, address, telephone number and e-mail address), demographic information (e.g., zip code, organization and/or role), billing information (e.g., credit or debit card numbers), or sensitive information (e.g., social security number, healthcare information).
We use the information to verify that only authorized users are accessing the respective application; to build your electronic client record or electronic personal health record so that Virtual First may provide you the specific personalized service you have applied for and agreed with; and to contact you when necessary, to communicate helpful tips and advice during your participation to this service.
In order to provide users with greater value, Virtual First may provide links to various third party Web sites. However, even if a third-party affiliation exists between Virtual First and that destination site, Virtual First exercises no authority over linked sites, each of which maintains independent privacy and data collection policies and procedures. Virtual First assumes no responsibility or liability for these independent methods or actions and is not responsible for the independent policies or procedures of destination sites. Similarly, Virtual First cannot take responsibility for the privacy initiatives or the content of such Web sites. These destination links are provided only for your convenience, and as such, you access them at your own risk.
Surveys and Questionnaires
Virtual First online surveys and questionnaires may ask users for contact and demographic information. The user's contact information is used to contact the user when necessary. Users may choose to receive future mailings; see the choice/opt-in section below. Demographic and profile data is also collected at Virtual First websites.
