Privacy Policy

Gateway Pediatrics PLLC takes your privacy seriously. There are two aspects to our privacy policy. The first deals with information we have about our patients. The second is information we may glean about visitors to this site. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy in both cases.

As a medical service provider, we have to collect personal information about our patients. This is necessary in order to provide quality medical service. Much of this information is considered as Protected Health Information (PHI) as per the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) 1996. You have specific rights under the law to control how we can use the PHI we collect. We are very committed to the privacy of your medical information. When you come into our office and sign up your child/ward as a patient, we will make a full disclosure about our privacy practices with reference to PHI and obtain the necessary consent/s.

Many websites track and collect Personally Identifiable Information (PII) with respect to users of that site. At this time, we do not collect any PII. We have the ability to obtain some non PII information about our users such as the domains from where the site was accessed, the type of browser, and usage statistics such as the number of times the page has been served or accessed in a given period of time. This information will be used to optimize our site and improve usability. Again, none of this can be considered as PII as we have no means of identifying the user of our site personally using just that information. We do not use cookies or other tracking mechanisms that would allow us to obtain PII without the knowledge of the user.

Further, we would like you to note that we use a third party provider to host this site. They may have the ability to correlate your usage of this site with other PII that you may have provided to them, independent of us. We do not have access to or control over such information. We therefore make no representations and/or warranties regarding the privacy polices of our web hosting service, and of other business partners, consultants, suppliers and advertisers, whose services we may engage to help in the operations and maintenance of this site. If you have questions or concerns about the privacy policies of Yahoo our present web hosting supplier, please visit http://privacy.yahoo.com or contact Yahoo directly. Please also note that many of the links on our site point to external websites. These sites have their own privacy policies and by clicking on those links, you are accepting their policies.

As always, these polices are subject to change at any time. If we do make any changes to the policy or begin to collect PII on this site, we will update this page. We will at that time, clearly spell out what information we collect, how we collect it and how we use it.

At any time, do not hesitate to contact us at 480-963-6668 if you have questions about our policy. We also welcome feedback from you regarding our website and how we can better serve you.
