Your privacy is very important to us. At Melrose Assisted Living we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
Like most website operators, Melrose Assisted Living collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Melrose Assisted Living’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Melrose Assisted Living’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Melrose Assisted Living may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Melrose Assisted Living also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Melrose Assisted Living only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Melrose Assisted Living’s websites choose to interact with Melrose Assisted Living in ways that require Melrose Assisted Living to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Melrose Assisted Living gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we may ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Melrose Assisted Living updates via email, we collect their name and emails. In each case, Melrose Assisted Living collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Melrose Assisted Living. Melrose Assisted Living does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Melrose Assisted Living may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Melrose Assisted Living may monitor the most popular pages on this site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Melrose Assisted Living may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Melrose Assisted Living does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Melrose Assisted Living discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Melrose Assisted Living’s behalf or to provide services available at Melrose Assisted Living’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Melrose Assisted Living’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Melrose Assisted Living will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Melrose Assisted Living discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Melrose Assisted Living believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Melrose Assisted Living, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Melrose Assisted Living website and have supplied your email address, Melrose Assisted Living may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Melrose Assisted Living and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Melrose Assisted Living takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Melrose Assisted Living, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Melrose Assisted Living goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Melrose Assisted Living may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
