Notice of Information Collected

We may collect two types of information: information that personally identifies you and information that does not personally identify you.

Personally Identifiable Information

You are not required to provide personally identifiable information to visit this Website. However, you must provide personally identifiable information in order to receive information or services from us via this Website.
Personally identifiable information is collected from you directly and with your knowledge during the submission of a request for information or services. We may collect personally identifiable information that you provide to us, such as your name, address, e-mail address, gender, birth date and phone number. If we collect information from or about you, we will tell you what information is being collected. The amount and type of information that we receive depends on how you use this Website and the information you choose to submit to us.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We may also collect non-personally identifiable information, which is automatically collected by Island Prescription Center or our third party vendor as you browse or otherwise access this Website. We may collect such information by tracking, or asking our third party vendor to track, your click-stream activity when such information is not tied to a user ID or through the use of “cookie” technology or by tracking internet protocol (IP) addresses, as explained below.

IP Addresses

We may log and track IP addresses for systems administration purposes and for reporting usage trends. Your IP address is usually associated with the physical place from which you enter the Internet. By collecting you IP address, we may record the page that linked you to this Website, the pages you visit on this Website, the ads you see or click on, and other information about the type of web browser, computer, platform and settings you are using, and any search terms you enter on this Website. IP addresses are not used to track an individual user’s session or location. This information only helps us determine how often different areas of our Website are visited.
Although we do not collect personal information automatically as noted above, we may combine non-personal information collected automatically (such as through IP addresses or click-stream monitoring) with any previously submitted personal information that we may have received from you.

Geographic Location

We may collect your geographic location based on your IP address and other location-based data. However, we do not collect any device identifications.

Analytics

We may also use various third party internet vendors to collect, track and analyze data regarding Website usage and trends.

Use of Information Collected

Any personally identifiable information that you voluntarily provide when using this Website may be used to provide you with information, products or services that you may request from Island Prescription.
We may also use such information to communicate to you special offers and featured items from your Island Prescription Center pharmacy, Island Prescription Center, its affiliates, and other suppliers and vendors. If you are receiving additional communications and special offers, you may opt out of receiving such additional information at any time by using the opt-out or unsubscribe link at the bottom of any emails distributed. We will implement your opt-out request as soon as is commercially reasonable and will strive to notify your pharmacy of your preference.
Island Prescription Center pharmacy will also have access to your personally identifiable information you submit via this Website, and your other protected health information as defined under HIPAA, and will use such information as necessary to provide you the information, products and services that you may request
We may share your personally identifiable information only with our suppliers and vendors or with other third parties to enable them to provide services for us. We require those suppliers and vendors to comply with all applicable data privacy laws and regulations, including HIPAA. We do not sell, lease or rent your personal information.

Non-Personal Information

The non-personal information we collect may be shared with our vendors and used in the aggregate to create summary statistics that help us analyze website usage trends, assess what information is of most and least importance, determine technical design specifications, arrange the Website in the most user-friendly way, and identify system performance or problem areas.

Other Use and Ownership

We reserve the right to share your information collected from this Website (including personal information) with third parties if required to do so by law or if we believe such action is necessary in order to: (a) conform with the requirements of the law or to comply with legal process served upon us; (b) protect or defend our legal rights or property, or that of another customer or user; or (c) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of the terms and conditions of using this Website.
Island Prescription Center maintains full rights to any information collected on this Website, and may freely collect, use and disclose such information unless prohibited by this Privacy Policy or applicable law.

HIPAA at Island Prescription Center

As a provider of services and technology to the healthcare industry, Island Prescription Center has implemented programs and policies to address the transaction standards and the privacy and security implications of the rules promulgated pursuant to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”). However, any protected health information that you may submit via this Website, as that term is defined in HIPAA, is subject to your pharmacy’s Notice of Privacy.

Security

We use recognized industry safeguards to help protect personally identifiable information from unauthorized access or use. If you are required to transmit sensitive information (such as Social Security and/or credit information) to us through our Website, we will provide you access to our secure server that allows encryption of your data as it is transmitted to us. We will help protect personally identifiable information stored on the Website’s servers from unauthorized access using commercially available computer security products (such as firewalls and encryption), as well as carefully developed security procedures and practices.
Although our security measures help protect against the unauthorized access or use of the information under our control, we cannot guarantee that such unauthorized access or use will not occur. In the event that there is a breach of our systems where there is a possibility that an unauthorized person acquires your personal information, we will notify you of such a breach to the extent required under applicable law.
