Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") applies to Better Health Chiropractic (the "Website") and sets out guidelines regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information ("Personal Information") that you provide to us, as well as non-personal browsing and site usage data ("Non-Personal Information"). Please read this Privacy Policy carefully.

As used in this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means information that would allow a party to identify you such as, for example, your name, address or location, telephone number or email address.

By accessing the Website, you are accepting and agreeing to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Our Principles

Better Health Chiropractic is committed to handling responsibly the information and data we collect about you through our Website, whether Personal or Non-Personal Information. We have designed our Privacy Policy consistent with the following principles (the “Principles”):

  1. Privacy policies and data collection and use policies should be human readable, comprehensive, and easy to locate;
  2. Only the minimum amount of information reasonably necessary to provide you with services should be collected and maintained, and only for so long as reasonably needed or required;
  3. Information you provide through our Website, or that we gather as a result of your use of our Website, should not be used for marketing or advertising purposes, nor should it be provided voluntarily (without your permission) to anyone else unless required; and
  4. Unless restricted or prohibited by law, and provided your email address has been collected and retained, you should be notified when circumstances require Better Health Chiropractic to provide a third party with your Personal Information.

Personal Information We Collect and How We Use It

Better Health Chiropractic generally collects personally identifying information with your specific knowledge and consent. We may collect Personal Information at several places on the Website, when you:

  • provide us with your personal information such as by using the Contact Form, Testimonials Form and Appointments Form to send us an email;
  • subscribe to receive e-mail updates from Better Health Chiropractic;
  • provide personal information in connection with your commenting activity on our website's articles.

Contact Form. We use your Personal Information to provide you with the relevant feedback, as per your request. Your email address is expunged after this feedback has been successfully sent.

Testimonials Form. We use and retain your Personal Information for identification purposes. Your first name and testimonial will be published on our website.

Appointments Form. We use your Personal Information to provide you with the service you have requested. This information is handled within the regulations set by the HIPAA-Compliant Privacy Notice used by our practice.

Emails and Newsletters. We use the Personal Information you provide to us when you send us emails or sign up to receive our newsletter or events listing in order to respond to your request — for example, to reply to your email or to send you communications about news and events related to Better Health Chiropractic. Information collected will not be sold, shared or used for future marketing or other communication beyond this request, unless you have consented to receive e-mail updates us.

Comments. If you choose to comment on the Website (including on a blog article or other article), your name (or alias) and your URL may be displayed on the Website.

Any other Personal Information that we may collect which is not described specifically in this Privacy Policy will only be collected and used in accordance with the Principles.

Disclosures of Personal Information

We will not disclose Personal Information to third parties, except in the following instances:

  1. We may share Personal Information confidentially with our contractors and service providers in order to maintain or enhance the Website, or in order to provide you with a service or interaction you have requested.
  2. We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties in a good-faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to:
    1. take action regarding suspected illegal activities;
    2. enforce the Privacy Policy;
    3. comply with the law or legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order; or
    4. protect our rights, reputation, and property, or that of our users or the public.

If we are required by law to provide a third party with your Personal Information and if we have collected and retained an email address for you, then we will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless prohibited by law or unless we are otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.

Non-Personal Browsing and Site Usage Data

Like most websites, our servers (which may be hosted by a third-party service provider) may collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your “IP address”) about your activities while visiting the Website and information about the browser you are using.

Use of Non-Personal Information

We may use the Non-Personal Information to maintain or enhance the Website, and for marketing or advertising purposes. We will not intentionally link Non-Personal Information to your Personal Information.

Disclosure of Non-Personal Information

In general, we do not disclose Non-Personal Information to third parties. However, we may disclose Non-Personal Information in three instances:

  1. We may disclose Non-Personal Information with our contractors and service providers in order to maintain or enhance the Website, as long as it is not linked to your Personal Information.
  2. We may disclose Non-Personal Information with service providers for marketing or advertising purposes, as long as it is not linked to your Personal Information.
  3. We may disclose your Non-Personal Information to third parties in a good-faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to:
    1. take action regarding suspected illegal activities;
    2. enforce the Terms of Use or this Privacy Policy;
    3. comply with the law or legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order; or
    4. protect our rights, reputation, and property, or that of our users or the public.

If you are accessing the Website from the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use and disclosure that differ from United States laws, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU and other regions.
