Web Privacy Statement

Lake Superior Community Health Center (LSCHC) is committed to protecting the privacy of those who visit our website. This Privacy Statement explains how we handle information obtained from visitors to our website.

Your use of this site indicates that you understand and agree to be bound by this Privacy Statement. LSCHC reserves the right to modify the Privacy Statement, in whole or in part at any time. Changes will be effective upon posting to this website. Your continued use of LSCHC’s website following any change to this Privacy Statement indicates that you agree to be bound by that change.

Collection and Use of Information

LSCHC is the sole owner of the information collected on its website. LSCHC does not commercially sell any customer lists or e-mail addresses.

We do not collect personally identifiable information via the website unless a website user voluntarily supplies it as part of a request for service or information. In those cases, the personally identifiable information will only be used to perform the requested service or to provide the requested information, except that on rare occasion, LSCHC may contact registered users of the website by email to inquire about potential interest in new web services.

We may also collect non-personally identifiable demographic data on our web users to improve the site and enhance services. These demographic trends will not be traceable to any individual web user’s personal information.

LSCHC may disclose personal information if permitted or required to do so by law, or when doing so is based on a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a court order or legal process served on LSCHC.

Internet Cookies

Cookies are small files that are placed on a website user’s computer hard drive and which are used to distinguish each website visitor. We do not use cookies to keep track of personally identifiable information about website users, nor do we use cookies to retrieve information from your computer which was not originally sent in a cookie. While the use of cookies is a standard practice among websites, a user can, depending upon the capabilities of his or her computer, reject the use of cookies and still use our website. Except as described in this Privacy Statement, we do not use information transferred through cookies for any promotional or marketing purposes, nor is that information shared with any third parties except when those third parties are performing services for LSCHC.

Google Analytics

Like millions of other website owners, we use Google Analytics on lschc.org
Google Analytics is a piece of software that grabs data about our visitors (you). It’s something like an advanced server log.

What does Google Analytics record?

  • What website you came from to get here.
  • How long you stay for.
  • What kind of computer you’re using.
  • And quite a bit more.

What do we do with your data?
The tracking information allows us to better understand the kind of people who come to our site and what content they’re reading. This allows us to make better decisions about how to display information for our customers most effectively.

Occasionally, we will compile aggregate statistics about the number of visitors this site receives and browsers being used. No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting.

All of our activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.

Want to opt out of tracking?
You can opt out of Google’s advertising tracking cookie or use a browser plugin to opt out of all Google Analytics tracking software.

Links to Third Party Web Sites

The LSCHC website may contain links to other websites (Other Sites). This Privacy Statement only applies to our website. LSCHC is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of Other Sites. We encourage our users to be aware of when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of Other Sites to determine if they may collect and/or otherwise use personally identifiable information.

Security Policy

We exercise care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our website. Personal information collected by the LSCHC website is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. Only those employees who need access to your information in order to do their jobs are allowed access, each having signed a confidentiality agreement.

Managing Your Information

LSCHC enables you to correct or update personally identifiable information that you have previously provided to us at any time. To do so, send an email to comments@lschc.org indicating the information that you wish to correct or update.
