Marshfield Clinic Web Sites Privacy Statement
For information on how Marshfield Clinic may use and disclose your health information and how you can get access to this information, see the Marshfield Clinic Notice of Privacy Practices.
Marshfield Clinic is committed to your privacy as a visitor to our Web sites. Whenever the terms "we," "us," or "our" are used in this privacy statement, they refer to Marshfield Clinic.
We currently contract with several online partners to help manage and optimize our Internet business and communications. We use the services of a marketing company to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use our site. To do this, we use Web beacons and cookies provided by our marketing company on this site.
By supplementing our records, this information helps us learn things like what pages are most attractive to our visitors, which of our products most interest our customers, and what kinds of offers our customers like to see. Although our marketing company logs the information coming from our site on our behalf, we control how that data may and may not be used. If you do not want to help us learn how to improve our site, products, offers and marketing strategy, please “opt-out” of our ability to analyze such data by clicking here. Note: If you are using My Marshfield Clinic, you can "opt-out" of our ability to analyze such data by clicking here.
Forms That Request Personal Information
On certain pages, we give you the option of providing us with your name, address, phone number, email address, demographic information, preferences and other personal information. We only gather this personal information with your knowledge, permission, and participation. You have the option to limit the amount of personal information you provide us at the time you submit it.
Restricted or Members-Only Areas
We collect unique identification numbers assigned to you (such as medical history numbers) only to verify your identity when you visit restricted or members-only areas of our Web sites. We use member identification numbers only to verify that you are an active member (for example, My Marshfield Clinic member). We do not keep or use such identification numbers for any other purpose.
Links to Other Web Sites and Third Parties
Our Web sites may contain links to Web sites operated by third parties. While we provide links to these sites for your convenience, we do not control the persons or organizations who maintain these Web sites. We do not recommend or endorse the content of any third-party sites. We therefore cannot be held responsible for the content, accuracy or quality of information, or quality of services or products provided by or advertised on these third-party sites or the privacy practices of these third-party sites. We do not share unique identification numbers assigned to you for restricted or members-only areas of our Web sites with third parties.
We do not request, seek or intentionally collect personal information from children under the age of 13. Portions of our Web sites are intended for children under the age of 13, such as Marshfield Clinic Children's. Parents or legal guardians are responsible to determine the appropriate content for their children and to monitor use and access to the Web site and any information it contains.
Security of our Web Sites, E-mail and Forms
We put certain security measures in place for our Web sites to protect any loss, misuse, or change of the information that is under our control. Such security measures include, for example, firewalls, access restrictions and password protection. We treat all information we receive from you through the forms on our Web sites and e-mail as confidential. However, e-mail links on our Web sites do not provide a means for completely secure and private communications between us. Your e-mails and form submissions (like most non-encrypted Internet e-mail communications) may be accessed and viewed without your knowledge or permission while in transit to us. If you wish to keep the information you send us private, please do not use e-mail links or forms. Instead, please contact us by telephone at 1-800-782-8581 or 715-387-5511 to be connected with the appropriate department.
Consumer Data Privacy
Marshfield Clinic is committed to the protection of credit and debit card information collected at the time of payment. We comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI Standards) which require safeguards for handling and securing customer information. These protections include information security policies, physical and technical access controls, security system monitoring and testing, the use of secure networks and encryption or other protection of cardholder data.
