Protecting the personal information we collect from you online is very important to us. This policy describes our privacy practice, including how we collect information from you, how we use that information, with whom we share your information, types of information collected, how you can access and modify the information we have collected online, and how we protect your information.

When you provide us with personal identifying information for a specific purpose, we will not use that information for other purposes, unless we specifically tell you so and give you the opportunity to opt out of such use. You may have visited our web site to learn more about the health care industry, and particular health care providers. As part of our services, you may provide us with some health-related information. Medical confidentiality is of the highest concern to Signature Medical Group. Signature does not share any medical information without your express consent in writing.

We collect and save the e-mail addresses of registered users, those who purchase our services through the internet as well as people who send us emails, or subscribe to our newsletter. We may also contact you to solicit feedback about the quality of our products and services.

Signature will NEVER share credit card numbers or other financial information with third parties.

Our web site is not for children, and we do not intend to collect information from minors. If we learn that we inadvertently have collected personal identifying information from a child under the age of 13, we will promptly delete that data from our systems and databases.

We strive to make our personal information collection policies as user-friendly as possible. We recognize that by providing us with your information, you are signifying your trust in us and in our site. In respect for your trust, we strive to provide you with easy access to your information, so that you can make any updates or corrections necessary.
