As a patient, your privacy and confidentiality are very important to us. Click here to view our practice's patient privacy notice. If you have any questions about our privacy policies, please email us or call us at (803) 254-1300.
Web Site Privacy
Your trust is our greatest asset. We make every reasonable effort to ensure that information held by this SC OBGYN web site is confidential and secure. We disclose our information-security practices to you as clearly and fully as possible. These practices receive continuous oversight, and many of our business decisions, including Web design, technology selections, and third-party business relationships, begin and end with considerations for your privacy.
Changes to Policy
While our philosophy will not change, the details of the policy will change over time as we add additional services and form relationships with new business partners. Please refer back to this page periodically. The date the policy was last revised will always appear at the top of the policy pages.
If you have any questions about this Privacy and Confidentiality Policy, the practices of SC OBGYN, or would like to provide comments, please contact us through the Patient Portal, email, or by phone at (803) 254-1300.
We collect and use activity statistics so we can understand the ways in which our sites and services are being utilized. Activity related data is stored anonymously and it is only used in the form of aggregated statistics. Activity related data cannot be used to target you with solicitations of any kind.
Collection and Stewardship of Other Information
We only collect information that is required in order to provide you with services. We design our sites so that you must make express, informed choices to use services that ask for personal information and authorize us to have access to your personal information. If you do choose to provide us with personal information, we will hold that information in the strictest confidence taking all reasonable steps to protect your personal health information.
At any time, you can opt out of any service you have been using and revoke your authorization for our access to your information. We monitor and adopt best practices from industry guidelines and applicable statutes, and we follow appropriate information security practices.
We work with business partners to provide the highest-quality service available. Our business partner contracts include protective language regarding consumer privacy in those cases where we feel the nature of the partner's role demands it. We do not disclose personal information to any third party without clearly noting the purpose of such disclosure at the point where you choose to use the service and obtain your authorization.
None of our sites or services are directed at children, and we make every reasonable effort to ensure that we do not accept personal information from persons under 13 years of age.
SC OBGYN cooperates with law enforcement inquiries as a matter of policy. We will use IP addresses and other available information to attempt to identify a user when we are legally compelled to do so or when we feel it is necessary to protect our services, sites, customers, or others.
Unfortunately, no data protection method or combination of methods can be guaranteed 100 percent secure. We take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information as described throughout this policy, but we cannot ensure or warrant our ability to do so. As a result, you use SC OBGYN content, products, and services at your own risk. SC OBGYN will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties.
