When you use our websites or applications, we may collect certain information by automated means, using third-party Web analytics services such as Google Analytics and Google AdWords Remarketing.

Security

The importance of security is a top priority for us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your Internet connection to our servers. We use our best efforts to ensure the security of information submitted by users. When collecting credit card information, we offer secured-server transactions that encrypt your information in transit in an effort to prevent interception of such information. When we collect other information from our users, it is stored in an area where the general public does not have access to it. While we have made a great effort to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Therefore please note that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure and BayCare Health System will not be held liable should a third party illegally obtain your personal information.
