Information collected may include the following: personally identifiable information, such as name, address, telephone number, organizational affiliation, credit card number, e-mail, patient account number, insurer, child(s) name, date of birth and/or reason for contacting the Watson Institute.  All of the information listed above is provided voluntarily by the user of the site.

In addition, Google analytics collects information which may include the user’s city and state, type of device(s) used to access the site as well as the user’s internet provider address. Some pixels used by the site place cookies.

Watson is the sole owner of the information provided by the user to us through this site. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of the Watson Institute and its affiliates, including the Watson Institute Education Center and Friendship Academy, other than as may be necessary to respond to your request or to comply with a court order, law or legal process, including without limitation, responding to government or regulatory requests.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via e-mail in the future to share updates with you about our programs.

Your access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out of future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the e-mail address or phone number given on our website:

– see what data we have about you, if any;

– change/correct data that we have about you;

Security

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit personal information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect personal information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While we use encryption to protect personal information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or support) are granted access to personal information.  The computers and servers in which we store this information are kept in a secure environment.

We encourage you to be responsible for your own internet security by not sharing passwords or other sensitive information that you submit to or receive from the Watson Institute.

Despite all of the security measures and precautions taken by the Watson Institute, the internet is not entirely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of personal information. Accordingly, transmission of information is at your own risk.
