Web Privacy Statement

Personal Information Collection and Use

SMG welcomes you to their website. All information that is collected on our website is done on a voluntary basis. All non-public personal information that you provide via our website will be used strictly for the purpose stated on the page where it is collected. SMG will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of SMG or our affiliated companies unless (1) required or permitted by law, (2) expressly authorized by you, or (3) necessary to enable SMG contractors or agents to perform certain functions for us. With all disclosures, we will disclose information consistent with applicable law and regulations and we will require the recipient to protect the information and use it only for the intended purpose.

"Personal Information" is defined as data that is unique to an individual, for example: name, address, member id, date of birth, or telephone number. There may be occasions where we may request personal information on our website in order to provide services or respond to your questions.

E-mail Communications

Feedback and questions are always welcome on our website. We have provided e-mail boxes for that purpose. Your feedback and questions will be shared with our customer service representatives and those employees most capable of addressing your feedback and questions.

Please note e-mail, like most, if not all, non-encrypted Internet e-mail communications, may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use e-mail to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. If you wish, you may contact us instead via non-cellular telephone at the numbers provided on our Contact Us page or Member Services at 661-273-7346.

We have made some locations on our website secure, so you can exchange non-public personal information with us. You will be provided appropriate instructions at each of these locations.

Linking to Other Sites

SMG's website may provide links to other websites, that are not owned or maintained by SMG, that we think might be useful or of interest to you. These other websites will open in a separate browser window. We are not responsible for the privacy practices used by other websites, the content, or accuracy of the other websites. These links to other non-SMG websites do not constitute or imply endorsement by SMG of these websites, any products or services described on these sites, or of any material contained in them.

Security

SMG has adopted and adheres to stringent security standards designed to protect non-public personal information at Sierramedicalgroup.com against accidental or unauthorized access or disclosure. Among the safeguards that SMG has developed for this site are administrative, physical and technical barriers that together form a protective firewall around the information stored at this site. We periodically subject our site to simulated intrusion tests and have developed comprehensive disaster recovery plans.

Changes to this Statement

SMG may change this Statement from time to time without notice. This Statement is not intended to and does not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
