At HealthLandscape, we are sensitive to privacy issues on the Internet. We believe it is important that you know how we treat the information you may provide to us.
Unless prominently and specifically stated otherwise, the information you provide is never shared outside of the American Academy of Family Physicians. The American Academy of Family Physicians owns, operates and maintains the HealthLandscape website.
How We Gather Information
To save you time and make our web service even easier to use, you must create a HealthLandscape account using your personal information. The HealthLandscape system saves your information and connects it to your email addresses and password. The next time you visit the UDS Mapper website, you simply enter your email address and password and our system will automatically look up the information it needs.
Through HealthLandscape, we may occasionally provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys in relation to our site. If you participate, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as ZIP Code). We may share aggregated demographic information about our user base with others. The information does not identify individual users.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include, for example, internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring/exit pages, type of operating system, and date/time stamp. We also maintain information about data accessed and geospatial tools that are used through the website.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to identify studies that are frequently accessed and geospatial tools that are frequently used, to track user movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
How We Protect Your Personal Information
At HealthLandscape, we take reasonable steps to safeguard the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. Likewise, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols, and make sure you use a secure browser.
Links to Other Sites
The UDS Mapper web site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by us. Please be aware that HealthLandscape and the American Academy of Family Physicians are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements and policies of each and every web site that solicits or collects personally identifiable information.
