The links on the HEALS website are provided for the use and convenience of HEALS members and visitors to the site. HEALS assumes no responsibility for the content or the accuracy or completeness of any information contained on any such linked site, and does not exert any editorial or other control over such sites.

Disclaimer

 

HEALS is providing information and services on the Internet as a benefit to HEALS website visitors, both members and the general public. HEALS makes no representations about the suitability, accuracy or completeness of such information and services for any purpose.

 

Privacy Policy

 

HEALS respects the privacy of every individual who uses this website. This Privacy Policy outlines the information that AAMI will collect and how we will use that information. Therefore, please read it carefully.

 

Use of Personally Identifiable Information

 

When you visit this website, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you (such as your name, address, telephone number, billing and shipping information, credit card information or e-mail address) unless you provide it to us voluntarily. If you opt not to provide us with this information, no material consequences will result, although you may be unable to receive certain information, or participate in certain transactions through this website. Parties wishing to participate in any transactions through this website are required to provide HEALS with a variety of necessary and personally identifiable information.

 

HEALS may store and process your personally identifiable information to better understand your needs and how we may improve our services, and we may use your personally identifiable information to contact you (for example, we may send you information on the organization, we may respond to your comments, or we may contact you if needed in the course of processing your requests). In some limited cases, we may share the data you provide with a third party in order to engage in (on HEALS' behalf) any of the activities listed above. However, HEALS does not generally provide or release names or e-mail addresses of site visitors to any third party without the visitor's explicit permission. Personally identifiable information provided by a site visitor, such as survey information and/or site registrations are used for HEALS' internal use only and are not shared with other persons or organizations for commercial purposes. Note that nothing in this Privacy Policy shall be deemed to prohibit HEALS from disclosing your identity if HEALS is required to do so by law.

 

Security

 

HEALS will make reasonable efforts to keep secure the data you provide us and will take reasonable precautions in an effort to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse or alteration. Further, HEALS cares about the safety and security of credit card transactions. This site uses high-grade encryption and the https security protocol to communicate with browser software. This method is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information sent via the Internet. Messages sent to AAMI by e-mail may not be secure. Do not send confidential information to HEALS via e-mail. 

 

Non Personally Identifiable Information Collected Automatically

 

In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet browser or computer system you are using and the domain name of the website from which you linked to our site or general demographics. In addition, when you view our website, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a "cookie" or similar file and will help us in many ways. For example, cookies allow us to tailor our Web site to shape and direct the creation and maintenance of content, as well as determine the information to be seen by site visitors while visiting the HEALS website. Most Internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. Please note that you may be unable to access certain areas of the members only and marketplace portions of the site if you have disabled cookies on your browser. Also note that HEALS makes no attempt to link information collected automatically to previously submitted personally identifiable information.
