Sharing Your Personal Information
Advanced Care Partners does not sell information to unrelated third parties. Care Partners Management Group LLC does send your contact and order information to the facility that you selected for purposes of satisfying your payment or reservation.
Advanced Care Partners follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this as part of the hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.
Advanced Care Partners and Session Cookies
The Advanced Care Partners website uses session cookies to enable filling out forms. A session cookie is a small file placed on your computer which acts as a unique identifier to keep track of the information you have entered. Without the session cookie, our site cannot track the information you are entering, and you will be unable to complete your transaction. A session cookie does not remain on your machine after you close your web browser window. Our session cookie contains none of your personal information, and cannot be used to track you around the web. It can only be used by our website to identify the information you have entered during the transaction process which is required to complete the transaction.
How to Enable Cookies on Your Browser
Your web browser is the primary way you can control cookies. The method for changing your cookie settings will vary depending on the browser you use, but options should be similar regardless of your browser choice.
If you are using IE 6, your cookies will be automatically controlled based on your privacy settings. If you would like to override automatic cookie control, choose Tools -> Internet Options -> Privacy -> Advanced. From this panel, you can choose to override automatic cookie handling and specify how you would like to deal with First Party and Third-Party cookies. First party cookies come from the owner of the website you are visiting, third party cookies come from a different company (for instance, an advertising company). You can select “Accept”, “Block”, or “Prompt” – if you choose “Prompt”, your browser will notify you each time a website attempts to set a cookie on your machine, and you can choose to accept or reject the cookie. If you would like to accept session cookies, but not persistent cookies, check the box to “Always Allow Session Cookies.” Please note that session cookies are required to enable shopping on many web sites.
Other web browsers provide similar options; if you are using Netscape 7, cookie options can be found at Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy and Security -> Cookies. In Mozilla Firefox, cookie options are available at Options -> Privacy -> Cookies, and in Opera 7 cookie preferences are available in File -> Preferences -> Privacy.
You can also control cookies with a number of internet security packages. If you use one of these packages, please refer to the software documentation for more information.
