The Website Does Not Provide Medical Advice
The information and content on the Website, including but not limited to text, graphics, images, videos, and other material contained in the Website, is for informational purposes only and is not intended as a substitute for professional medical advice, help, diagnosis or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health care provider with any questions you have regarding your medical care, and never disregard professional medical advice or delay seeking it because of something you have read on the Website. Nothing contained in the Website is intended to constitute a medical diagnosis or treatment. Nothing in the Website is intended as a recommendation or endorsement of any specific test, product, procedure, opinion, or other information that may be mentioned in the Website. Reliance on any information appearing on the Website, including but not limited to information provided by Website personnel or by other users of the Website, is solely at your own risk.
NEUROAXIS does not warrant the accuracy, completeness, timeliness or usefulness of the opinions, advice, content, services or other information provided through the Website or on the Internet generally. NEUROAXIS has no control over and accepts no responsibility for your compliance with the laws applicable to your country or state of residence.
What Information We Collect
Other than generalized website traffic data, the only personally identifiable information that NEUROAXIS obtains about you is information that you supply voluntarily. You grant NEUROAXIS the right to transmit, monitor, retrieve, store and use your information in connection with the operation of the Website.
NEUROAXIS employs strict security measures to safeguard online communications that meet or exceed industry standards for the protection of such data; personally identifiable information is stored in a secure database. We do everything reasonably possible to protect user information we collect.
NEUROAXIS may place small data files, called "cookies," on your computer or other device. Cookies are a standard web technology that allow us to both store and retrieve login information on a user's system. These cookies automatically identify your browser to our server whenever you interact with a service provided on the Website. Cookies can store your preferences via a password you select to access a website. Cookies also help us review Website traffic patterns and improve the Website. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you usually can change your browser setting to prevent the acceptance of cookies, although this may prevent you from using some of the features of the Website. It is important to note that information collected through cookies is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
Secure Patient Portal
The Website may integrate a secure Patient Portal to enhance a user’s convenience. Through such a Portal, information supplied in an online submission form is transmitted securely to NEUROAXIS using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Ensuring that communications remain secure between users and the Web server is a critical issue. SSL is the protocol developed to transmit private documents via the Internet. It works by using a public key to encrypt data that's transferred over the SSL connection. Many Web sites use the SSL protocol to obtain confidential user information, such as credit card numbers.
