IP Addresses
When your Web browser or email application requests a Web page from another computer on the Internet, it automatically gives that computer the address where the requested information should be sent. This is called your computer’s “IP address.” (IP stands for “Internet protocol.”).

Information Collection and Use Practices
Health Advocates Homecare receives your IP address each time you view a Web page from the Website. Your IP address is not linked to your email address or any other personally identifiable information (unless you submit a form or a contact request on the Website).

Your IP address may be used for various purposes, including:

  • to diagnose service or technology problems reported by you that are associated with your IP address.
  • to estimate the total number of users visiting the Website from specific locales, countries or regions of the world.

Log Files
When a Web page on the Website is requested, that request (including the date and time) is logged on our servers with information including the IP address of the computer that requested the page.

We use log files for debugging and troubleshooting purposes. IP addresses and access times are not linked to your email address or any other personally identifiable information (unless you submit a form or a contact request on the Website).

Cookies
If you request certain services from us, Health Advocates Homecare may then attempt to set cookies on your computer and later access those cookies. You can normally refuse cookies by setting preferences in your browser. You do not need to accept cookies to use the Health Advocates Homecare website.

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website’s computers and then stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie cannot obtain information from your hard drive, destroy files, or transmit viruses.

Each website can send its own cookie to your browser, if your browser’s preferences allow it. To protect your privacy, your browser normally only permits a website to access cookies that it has previously sent to you, but not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

Choices About Cookies

  • You can normally configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.)
  • If you reject all cookies, you will still be able to use the Health Advocates Homecare website.
  • Cookies are used only as an option selected by you that allows us to recall your email address from the cookie that we sent to your computer.

In reviewing the information above, please keep in mind that Health Advocates Homecare cannot and does not assume any responsibility for any actions or omissions of third parties, including other website users, including the manner in which they might use information received either from Health Advocates Homecare or independently.
