Specialty Anesthesia ("Specialty Anesthesia" or "we") is committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect about you to process orders and to personalize your experience at our website. This privacy statement explains how we gather information and how we protect your privacy.
The policy includes detailed explanations of how we provide:
The following describes the ways we collect information from you, and the protections that apply to your information.
Specialty Anesthesia collects personal information from you and from your transactions with us. We use information we collect to provide you certain products and services, and if needed to respond to your inquiries or requests for information. We occasionally collect data about you from financial entities to perform verification services and from commercial sources. We do this, for example, to prepopulate data fields in call centers to facilitate transactions, or to market products to consumers who have agreed to receive such messages.
Specialty Anesthesia follows the privacy requirements of the Privacy Act, which protects your personal information that we maintain in what is called a system of records. A system of records is a file, database, or program from which personal information is retrieved by name or other personal identifier. In other words, the Privacy Act applies when we use your personal information to know who you are and to interact with you such as when you provide information to request a product or service, register on Specialty Anesthesia.com, or submit an inquiry or complaint. The Privacy Act provides comprehensive protections for your personal information. This includes how information is collected, used, disclosed, stored, and discarded.
When we collect and maintain personal information from you offline, a Privacy Act notice will be provided. The following is your Privacy Act notice for personal information collected online:
Privacy Act notice: Your information will be used to provide you requested products, services, or information. Collection is authorized by 39 USC 401, 403, & 404. Providing the information is voluntary, but if not provided, we may not process your transaction. We do not disclose your information to third parties without your consent, except to facilitate the transaction, to act on your behalf or request, or as legally required. This includes the following limited circumstances: to a congressional office on your behalf; to financial entities regarding financial transaction issues; to a Specialty Anesthesia auditor; to entities, including law enforcement, as required by law or in legal proceedings; to domestic and international customs relating to outgoing international mail pursuant to federal law and agreements; and to contractors and other entities aiding us to fulfill the service (service providers).
Many of our programs and websites allow you to send us an email. We will use the information you provide to respond to your inquiry, provide information, or to fill your order for postal products and services in which you have expressed an interest.
Remember that email may not necessarily be secure against interception. If your email communication is very sensitive, or includes information such as your bank account, charge card, or social security number, you should send it by mail unless the Web site indicates the particular site is secured.
We automatically collect certain information about your visit to Specialty Anesthesia.com. We limit the data collected to meet specific business needs and to fully protect your privacy. We thus may know what path(s) you took on Specialty Anesthesia.com, but we dont know who you are. Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, we do not use this information to identify you personally without your express consent.
We automatically collect and store the following information about your visit:
Specialty Anesthesia believes in permission-based marketing. We do not sell, rent, or otherwise provide your personal information to outside marketers. You will only receive marketing about products and services of Specialty Anesthesia or its partners, other than products and services you already receive or are registered for, under the following conditions.
Consumers may opt-in, and businesses may opt-out, when they register on Specialty Anesthesia.com and create a customer profile. These preferences in the profile can be changed at any time. Please contact the privacy office at the addresses below with any questions about your preferences.
In those instances where we secure your personal information in transit to us and upon receipt, Specialty Anesthesia uses the industry standard encryption software, Secured Socket Layer (SSL). The URL in your browser will change to HTTPS instead of HTTP when this security feature is invoked. Your browser may also display a lock symbol on its bottom task bar line to indicate this secure transmission is in place.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, Specialty Anesthesia employs software programs to monitor network traffic in order to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits other than those uses identified in this policy. Unauthorized modification or misuse of information stored in this system will be investigated and may result in criminal prosecution.
Specialty Anesthesia enters into relationships with service providers in order to provide the highest quality product or service. Service providers may include an entity that provides assistance for the program, such as a call center; a provider of advertising services; or a partner for the program. Specialty Anesthesia holds service providers to the same rigorous standards of privacy that apply to Specialty Anesthesia, including being made subject to the Privacy Act and Specialty Anesthesia privacy policies. Service providers that have access to personal information are also subject to security review.
We will investigate and respond to your inquiry. Your inquiry will be treated confidentially and will be protected under the Privacy Act.
