The purpose of this policy is to describe our commitment to fair information practices and the protection of privacy. This Policy is applicable only to this Site, and not to any other websites or providers that you may access from this Site, each of which may have data collection and usE practices and policies that differ materially from this Policy.
2. NOTICE CONCERNING CHILDREN
We do not direct any of our content at children under the age of 13. We DISCOURAGE use of our site by children under the age of 13. If we learn or have reasonable cause to believe that a Site user is under the age of 13, we will delete personal information in that user’s account.
Physical, electronic and managerial procedures have been employed to safeguard the security and integrity of your personal information. Billing information is encrypted whenever transmitted or received online. Personal information is accessible only by Duffy’s personnel designated to handle online requests. All Duffy’s agents and contractors with access to personal information obtained on the Duffy’s websites are also contractually obligated to adhere to this policy.
4. INFORMATION COLLECTION PRACTICES.
4.a. Basic information collected. Duffy’s collects the following types of personal information online: names, postal and email addresses, phone and facsimile numbers, billing information, and complaint information. If you choose, you may provide additional information such as your age, gender, treatment options or requests, and substance usage. Duffy’s servers may automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personal information about you is revealed in this process. The Site may also gather ‘traffic data’ that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer.
4.b. Persons Under 13. Duffy’s does not collect or maintain information from those actually known to be under the age of 13, and no part of our sites is structured to attract anyone under the age of 13.
4.c. Cookies and computer tracking. Our websites are set up to track, collect or distribute personal information entered by visitors. Our site logs do generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal purposes to provide better services to the public and may also be provided to others, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.
Our websites also recognize the online site where a visitor clicked on a link to us, but we cannot identify the visitor or the visitor’s address. Site information may be used to advise portal sites of the number of visitors who come to our Duffy’s site from their sites. No personal information is collected.
A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent by your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. You can still use the Duffy’s sites if your browser is set to reject cookies. Our cookies do not generate personal data, do not read personal data from your machine and are never tied to anything that could be used to identify you.
5. USE AND SHARING OF INFORMATION
Unless you consent, we will not use your personal information for any purpose other than that for which it is submitted, without your consent or in order to comply with the law. We use personal information to reply to inquiries and for in-program record-keeping. We also process billing requests related to program participation.
5.a. How Your Information May Be Shared
5.b. Release of Information as Provided by Law
Duffy’s also may release Personal Information to appropriate governmental authorities as provided by law, including:
- where release is required by subpoena or regulation, or is required to be released in response to a request by a governmental agency;
where our records indicate potential fraudulent activity or other deceptive practices and disclosure to a governmental agency is appropriate or required;
- where warranted by a company's failure to participate in the advertising self-regulatory process or respond to an online privacy complaint, or where a company fails to honor the recommendations of the National Advertising Division or National Advertising Review Board; or
under exigent circumstances to protect the safety of the public or users of the Site.
6. WEBSITES AND AREAS BEYOND OUR CONTROL
The Site may include interactive forums such as message boards and chat rooms. Any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.
The Site may contain links to other websites, electronic or social media. If you choose to visit other websites or utilize other media, it is your responsibility to review the privacy policies at those websites to confirm that you understand and agree with their policies.
