Lincare Long Term Care recognizes that individuals with whom we conduct business value their privacy. However, in order to conduct global business in this increasingly electronic economy, the collection of personal information is often necessary and desirable. It is our goal to balance the benefits of e-commerce with the rights of individuals to prevent the misuse of their personal information.
This policy applies to:
Collecting Information on All Site Visitors
Lincare Long Term Care gathers certain generic information with respect to visitors' use of the site. Information such as the number of visitors, the frequency with which they visit and the areas on the site that they favor, very much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tuned in to a program. We use this type of data only in aggregate-that is, we look at the data on a collective basis, in summary form, rather than on an individual basis. This collective data helps us determine the extent to which our customers use certain parts of the site, which, in turn, enables us to make the site as appealing as we can for as many of you as possible, providing you with the best possible web experience. These statistical ratings do not contain any personally identifiable information about you or any of our users.
In some circumstances, Lincare Long Term Care may request personal information from you, such as your name, email address, or telephone number. Your response to these inquiries is strictly voluntary. Lincare Long Term Care uses this information to fulfill your order. In addition, we may use this information for other business purposes, such as alerting you to products and services offered by us or our affiliates that can assist you, and assisting in order processing.
In general, you can visit our site without divulging any personal information. However, there are areas of this site that require this information to complete their functions, and may not be available to those choosing not to reveal the information requested.
All data protection and privacy laws, principles, policies, and agreements are applicable to the country (and state where applicable) in which you are viewing and interacting with this website is located and all countries (and states where applicable) in which recipients and viewers of content and messages via this website are located, including but not limited to the CAN-SPAM Act 2003 and Canada’s anti-spam legislation (CASL). Lincare’s data protection policies give consideration to the application of the European Union General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (“GDPR) for the transmission and receipt of all data, and once applicable, the relevant member state laws or regulations giving effect to or corresponding with any of them for members of states of the European Union shall apply.
