Committed to Protecting Your Privacy
Chiropractic Care of Minnesota, Inc. and its ChiroCare Network respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it at all times.
This Internet Privacy Statement applies only to information collected by ChiroCare through its website:
When you browse www.chirocare.com, you browse anonymously. Personally identifiable information — such as your name, address, phone number and email address — is not collected from viewers.
Use of “cookies”
We track how our site is used by both anonymous visitors and visitors who interact with the site. We create "cookies." A cookie is a small file or string of text on the site user's computer that is used to aid Web navigation. Two types of cookies are commonly used. A session cookie is created by a website when that website is accessed; that type of cookie is automatically deleted by closing the Web browser. A persistent cookie is a cookie that is stored on the hard drive of the user’s computer for a period of time chosen by the website that set the cookie, usually for a number of years, unless the user deletes it manually.
Short-lived cookies vs. long-lasting cookies
This policy distinguishes between short-lived cookies and long-lasting cookies. Short-lived cookies include all session cookies and those persistent cookies that are set to be stored for no more than one week. ChiroCare-related websites may at times require users to accept short-lived cookies in order for the websites to function properly. Long-lasting cookies may be used on the site to track visitor practices to help determine which site features and services are most important and guide editorial direction. Other long-lasting cookies may make it possible for the user to access the site without requiring entry of a user name or password, allow the user to view different restricted areas of the site without reregistering, allow the user to personalize the site for future use and provide other features and benefits. Users who do not desire the functionality created by the long-lasting cookie can disable the long-lasting cookie function, either by indicating when asked that they do not wish to have a long-lasting cookie created or by disabling the long-lasting cookie function on their Web browser. Individuals can opt out of long-lasting cookie functions that permit tracking of personal information at any time. Cookies are required for the Members-Only sections of the website. Cookies are essential for site administration and security.
Another way we track site activity is by using transparent electronic images called "clear GIFs," "Web bugs," or "Web beacons" on this site’s Web pages. These images count the number of users who visit that page from specific banner ads outside www.chirocare.com or through email links. We do not use any of these electronic images to collect personally identifiable information.
Use of email addresses
All nonmembers who have opted in are sent the quarterly ChiroCare newsletter. ChiroCare may also send "transactional or relational email messages" to members with whom we already have a relationship. We do not share, sell, trade, exchange or rent your email address to vendors for them to market their products or services to you. When we hire vendors to deliver emails to you on our behalf, they are under agreement and limited from using your email address for any other purpose. When we send email to you, we may be able to identify information about your email address, such as whether you can view graphic-rich HTML email. If your email address is HTML-enabled, we may choose to send you graphic-rich HTML email messages. These email messages may contain "clear GIFs" or "Web beacons" to measure the offer’s effectiveness so we know how to serve you better. We do not collect personally identifiable information through "clear GIFs" or "Web beacons."
