The Surgical Weight Control Center (hereinafter referred to as SWCC) is committed to earning your trust and confidence. To better protect privacy, we provide this notice explaining our information collection practices.
SWCC strongly believes in a consumer's right to privacy. SWCC does not engage in the distribution, sale or use of personally identifiable information about Web Users, such as email address, name, phone number and street address.
SWCC also complies with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPAA) of 1996.
SWCC uses a feature of Internet browsers called "pixels", also known as clear gif technology, or action tags. Pixels are tiny colorless image files placed in a web page, which are served by SWCC and counted when served. Pixels are used to track the completion of transactions and submittal of applications.
There are many misconceptions about pixels, some of which we will try to clarify. Pixels do not tell us an e-mail address or any other personally identifiable information. They merely allow SWCC to track the effectiveness of campaigns through the pixel's tracking capabilities. SWCC does not and cannot use pixels to retrieve personal information from your computer.
Information Collection and Use
As part of our on-going efforts to ensure the best possible experience for all recipients of SWCC advertising, we use pixels to collect data from browsers to aggregate statistical information. This includes IP addresses, browser types, operating systems, domain names, access times and referring website addresses.
