Privacy Policy

Privacy Statement

This Privacy Statement describes how we treat all user data collected during your visit to the ClearHealthWA Site.

For the purposes of this Privacy Statement, the “ClearHealthWA Site” is the website whose home page is www.clearhealthwa.org and includes all web pages whose domain name contains the following: www.clearhealthwa.org. This Privacy Statement does not apply to websites linked to through the ClearHealthWA Site.

ClearHealthWA may occasionally update this Statement. We will post any changes on this web page, so be sure to check back periodically. If we do make material changes, we will post a notice on our home page that the Privacy Statement has been modified and provide a link to the revised Privacy Statement. Any information that you submit after a change has been posted will be subject to the new provisions.

User Data We Collect

We collect one type of user data: technical data that is automatically collected from all visitors to the ClearHealthWA Site (“Automatically Collected Data”). We automatically collect and store Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses and domain names of the originating visitor’s computer on our server and may know some information you have previously provided through cookies (See the section on “Cookies” below for more information). We also track the number and frequency of hits per page as well as length of website visit, using IP addresses and/or session cookies. In addition, if you come to the ClearHealthWA Site from a website link, we may also identify the source of that link.

Cookies

We collect some data through the use of cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that are transferred to your browser on your computer or device and either stored permanently for future access by the transferor (“Long-term Cookies”) or temporarily to facilitate the transferor’s website analysis and functionality (“Short-term Cookies”) or that are transferred temporarily to your computer’s Random Access Memory (“Session Cookies”).

We may transfer a Long-term Cookie in circumstances in which you are notified prior to the cookie being stored. For example, when you select a “remember” option on the ClearHealthWA Site, a Long-term Cookie will be stored on your browser on your computer or device solely for the purpose of automatically filling in the information you have asked to be remembered.

We may use Session Cookies whenever you visit the ClearHealthWA Site for our website traffic analytics application and the Site’s interactive applications, such as in our online advocacy. Session Cookies last only as long as your browser session. They expire when you close your browser and are not permanently stored on your computer or device.

Some of our website analysis and functionality, such as maps and videos, are provided through third-party functionality and require the use of Short-term Cookies.  These Short-term Cookies are set to expire within one hour of their being placed on your browser on your computer or device.

Some elective, third-party media functionality on the ClearHealthWA Site may also use Cookies. Please see the “Third-Party Functionality” section below.

Google Maps and other Third-Party Functionality

This site uses Google Maps technology to provide maps and directions in its “Hospitals” section.  Google may store short and long-term cookies on your computer if you visit this section of the site.  Please make sure that you review Google’s procedures before visiting that section of the site and using its functionality.

Additionally, to support certain functions carried out on the ClearHealthWA Site, ClearHealthWA uses third-party service providers. In limited instances with respect to specific optional functions on the ClearHealthWA Site, these third parties may have data collection, use or security procedures that differ from the practices outlined in this Privacy Statement and that may impact users of those optional functions. For example, a third-party service provider may allow us to stream videos through the ClearHealthWA Site on an embedded video player (e.g., the YouTube embedded player) and, by viewing that video on the ClearHealthWA Site, you are actually accessing that service provider’s website and subject to its data collection, use or security procedures. This third party may, for example, transfer a Long-term Cookie to your computer when you use this functionality. Please make sure that you review that third party’s procedures prior to using that optional functionality. In cases where it is not clear that you are using a third party’s functionality (i.e., it is not branded as the functionality of a third-party), we will notify you that your use of the functionality is subject to a third party’s data collection, use and security procedures and identify that third party.
