What is Personally Identifiable Information?
“Personally identifiable information” is information that we can use to identify you as an individual. Personally identifiable information includes your name, address, telephone number, and any other information that is connected with you personally.
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
1stHealthSystems generally collects personally identifiable information with your specific knowledge and consent. Prior to downloading information, such as white papers and marketing materials, that may be available from time to time on the Website, or by signing up to receive other information, you may be required to provide limited personal information. In some instances, a registration process may be required.
1stHealthSystems uses this information to provide you with the service you have requested. We may also use your information to contact you by email or offline with special offers from 1stHealthSystems or affiliated parties who have asked 1stHealthSystems to market to its users on their behalf. If you do not want us to send you email messages, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may also initiate marketing contacts with colleagues at your business or institution on the basis of inquiries you may make about our products and services.
In addition, 1stHealthSystems may share or disclose personally identifiable information about you to other companies or individuals when:
we utilize third-party service providers to provide products, services, or functions on our behalf (such as sending emails, information, newsletters, processing credit cards, hosting data) and ask these service providers to agree to maintain the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information and not to use your personally identifiable information for any reason except to carry out the purpose(s) for which we hired them;
we authorize third parties who may have products we think might be of interest to you, to contact you;
the entity to whom the information is disclosed is one under control of, or under common control with, 1stHealthSystems (for these purposes, a company controlling 20% or more of the voting stock of another entity shall be deemed to control such entity);
we need to protect our legal rights (for example, if we are trying to collect money you owe us);
we must comply with applicable laws, regulations, or legal or regulatory process; or
in connection with a sale, merger, transfer, exchange, or other disposition (whether of assets, stock, or otherwise) of all or a portion of the business conducted by the Website.

Web beacons may be used for a number of purposes, including for counting visitors to the Website, monitoring how users navigate the Website, and counting how many emails that were sent were actually opened.
