In addition, you will provide us with information about your doctor, appointment time, and the services you intend to receive.

We use Personal Information collected through this Site for the purposes of:

Administering and processing orders and accounts relating to customers or subscribers.
Identifying potential customers or subscribers.
Analyzing and managing our workload or business activity.
Administering orders and accounts relating to suppliers of goods or services.
Conducting market research analysis.
Providing you with information about our products or services or the products and services we offer jointly with or on behalf of other organizations.
Emailing you important information about the Site, your services and appointment, payment, or changes to our terms, conditions and policies. This information may be critical to your use of this Site and as such, you may not opt-out of receiving these emails.

Aggregate Information

When you visit this Site, we examine your browser type to ensure compatibility between our applications and the various Web browsers used to access this Site. We also collect aggregate information automatically from cookies about your visit to this Site.

A 'cookie' is a small piece of information sent by a Web server to a Web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser. Find out more about the use of cookies on www.cookiecentral.com. We may use 'cookies' on certain pages in order, for example, to eliminate the need for you to re-enter your password during a session. This makes our applications easier to use. Cookies are stored on your hard drive, not on this Site, so you can examine the data files and see exactly what information is being recorded. Most cookies are 'session cookies', meaning that they are automatically deleted at the end of a session. We use cookies to identify you when you visit this Site and to keep track of your browsing patterns and build up a demographic profile. You are free to decline cookies if your browser permits, but if you do so you may be required to re-enter your previously submitted information.

We analyze Aggregate Information from users for the purpose of enhancing web site security and tracking use and traffic levels on this Site, so that we may provide content relevant to your interests, and improve this Site and related services.
