Online Privacy Statement & Policy

The Acute Family Medicine Clinic Online Privacy Policy has been developed as an extension of our commitment to combine the finest quality care and service with the highest level of integrity in dealing with our patients. This Policy guides how we collect, store and use information obtained through our website, and it will be periodically assessed against current business practices and our patients' changing needs.

The Acute Family Medicine Clinic may, from time to time, modify this Online Privacy Policy to reflect legal, technological and other developments. In that event the changes will appear at this location.

Our Policy recognizes two kinds of personal data. Personally-Identifiable Information includes, for example, e-mail addresses. The second category, Sensitive Data, requires additional safeguards. Sensitive Data includes, by way of example, Social Security numbers, personal financial data, and information about a patientís specific medical condition.

The Acute Family Medicine Clinic is committed to using all reasonable efforts to abide by the following Policy Statement:

  1. Collection. Personally-Identifiable Information will only be collected to the extent that the Acute Family Medicine Clinic (AFMC) deems reasonably necessary to serve a legitimate business purpose. Please be aware that if you provided your email address through our Grand Opening Advisory system, you will in the future be receiving email from us pertaining to our grand opening, and may receive additional informational emails from time to time thereafter. It is our strict policy that email addresses collected through this system will never be sold or given to any party outside of the AFMC, for any reason.
  2. Sensitive Data: Data including our patientsí names, physical or mailing contact information, medical conditions and treatments will not be stored or maintained at any time or in any fashion on our domain web server. Patients should not include any such Sensitive Data in any email to AFMC, as our email server does not provide encryption for the purpose of transmitting confidential or private correspondence.
  3. Visitor Tracking: We do not have in place, nor do we anticipate implementing any technology to track movement within or otherwise identify visitors to the AFMC website.
  4. Opt Out. If you have previously provided your email address through our Grand Opening Advisory system, and do not now wish to receive emails or information from AFMC, you can be permanently removed from the system at any time by calling 907-622-4325.
  5. Updates or Changes to Personally-Identifiable Information: You can additionally correct, update, or change the email address you have previously provided by calling 907-622-4325.
  6. Links to Websites Outside of Our Domain. The AFMC website may contain links to websites/information outside of our domain (www.acutefamilymedicine.com) which we feel is pertinent and/or useful to our patients. AFMC is in no way responsible for the content or update of information outside of our domain and consequently outside of our control.
  7. Practice Privacy Policies: Please see also our Confidentiality and Privacy Policy in compliance with the AAFP Policy on Patient Confidentiality, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPPA).

We have established procedures to ensure that every reasonable effort is made to address your concerns.
