River Rock Institute's Privacy Statement was instituted July 24, 2004 and updated as needed thereafter. River Rock Electrology Institute ("River Rock") knows that you care how information about you is used and shared. Therefore, this online Privacy Statement tells you about the information River Rock collects through the services available on www.rr-ei.com (the "Site"), and how we use that information. By using the Site, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Statement, as modified by us from time to time. Therefore, we encourage you to check this page periodically for updates or changes whenever you visit the Site. All changes will become effective when posted, and by continuing to use the Site following the posting of any changes, you agree to be bound by such modified Privacy Statement.
When you visit and use the Site, we gather certain information to help us better serve you. The information that we receive and collect depends on what you do when you visit the Site.
Except as described in this Privacy Statement, we do not sell, rent, share or disclose the personally identifiable information that you provide to us (which is information that can be used to identify you individually) with any other organization. Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others.
When you browse the Site or our sister sites in general, we do not collect personally identifiable information. If you are accessing our secured school files such as the on-line course catalog we do collect information including who accesses the information, when, and from where it was accessed. You may be contacted regarding your access for recruitment or other purposes. If you want to remain anonymous, don't access those files.
If you are interested in applying for a job with River Rock, we collect the information asked for in the online application and we use that information solely for the purpose of matching your experience and preferences with the job openings we have now or in the future. Someone from River Rock may contact you to ask for your resume and to discuss potential employment opportunities. The information you submit is used solely for the purposes of recruiting and is not shared with any third party.
Please note that by submitting your information regarding employment opportunities with River Rock, you authorize us to transmit and store your information in our recruitment database and to circulate that information as necessary for the purpose of evaluating your qualifications for job vacancies at River Rock.
Please be aware that we may disclose any information you provide to us (including personally identifiable information) in the good faith belief that we are required to do so by law, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, to respond to any claims or to protect our rights, property or personal safety, or that of our customers or the public.
Some information is automatically collected when you visit the Site. We collect the name of the domain and host from which you access the internet, the internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using, the browser software you use and your operating system, the date and time you access the Site, and the internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to the Site. We use this information to monitor the Site and provide us with the ability to enhance our client's experience and to determine aggregate information about usage patterns.
You can choose to have your browser warn you every time a cookie is being sent to you or you can turn off your computer's ability to receive cookies.
We make every effort to ensure that your personal information is protected on our system. Our Site uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption and third party services to monitor and secure our site to help ensure that your personal information cannot be read as it passes over the internet.
You may sign up for a free e-mail newsletter which contains product update information and special offers from River Rock at your consultation or next appointment. If you do not give us your email you will not receive the newsletter.
Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. For that reason, our Site does not solicit, collect or maintain personally identifiable information from users we actually know are under age 16. Children under the age of 16 should not provide any personally identifiable information on the Site, and we ask that children be supervised by a parent while visiting the Site. There may be some content that parents find objectionable. We recommend they preview the site and any links to or from it before viewing it with their child. We will not add children under 18 to our email newsletter without written approval from their parent or guardian.
If you have any questions about our privacy statement or our use of your information, please contact River Rock directly by phone. The content of any comments, suggestions, questions, information and feedback received by River Rock shall be deemed to be non-confidential. Any comments or materials sent to River Rock through this Site, including all feedback, questions, comments, suggestions, questionnaires and the like, shall become the sole property of River Rock. River Rock shall be free to use any such suggestions, comments, concepts and the like for any and all purposes of its sole choosing, without payment of any compensation.
The Site may include links to other sites on the Internet that are owned and operated by vendors and other third parties (the "External Sites"). River Rock is not responsible for the availability of, or the content, products, services, information or materials located on or available through, any External Site. You should contact the site administrator or Webmaster for those External Sites if you have any concerns regarding any matter related to or available from such External Sites, including without limitation, the privacy practices of such sites.
