Information We Gather
Surgical Arts Centre collects no personal information when you create an account with us, with the exception of external email addresses used to send system invitations. Surgical Arts Centre automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser which is specifically limited to the last IP address that attempted to log into an account, and whether that login was successful.
Surgical Arts Centre uses information for the following purposes only: identification and authentication, services improvements, and security enhancements.
Information You Provide
This site does not actively collect information from its visitors. Information may be collected when you make general inquiries to Surgical Sleep Solutions, but such collection is limited to persons who do not have an account and/or are not logged into their account. Some of the information that you submit under those specific circumstances may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name and email address).
The information that you provide us may be validated, and we may send you a validation email to that effect. In addition, you may, at times, use the Surgical Arts Centre system to contact Surgical Arts Centre directly. Like other communications made between users of Surgical Sleep Solutions, those communications are encrypted. In addition, we do not send marketing or newsletter emails to your Surgical Arts Centre address, or any other personal email address submitted during contact.
Information Collection and Use
We ask for your email address if you submit a request through our contact form. We use your email address if we need to respond to your comments or questions. No other information is collected or used in any way.
Session cookies expire when you log off and close your browser, while persistent cookies remain on your hard drive for an extended period of time. We use session cookies on our site, but not persistent cookies. These cookies are used to identify you as the account holder, and no other reason than that.
