1. What information do we gather?

The information we receive from users of our website allows us to perform a number of functions to assist our users, make improvements to our website, and personalize our users’ experiences online.

Information You Provide

We receive and may store any information you provide to us online or give us in any other way, including means such as telephone calls or emails. An example of this includes our free online physician referral program. You may choose not to provide certain information, understanding that this will prevent us from providing some services. We use the information you provide in a number of ways, such as to respond to requests, provide offline and online communications that may be of greater appeal to you, and make improvements to our website.

Automatic Information

We receive and may store certain types of information from your device any time you visit our website. The information your device provides is reported in an overall format that includes details such as total number of visitors to our website, pages viewed, time spent on certain pages, and other similar categories.

2. How do we gather information?

Baptist Health Systems uses reasonable precautions to protect our users' information. Information submitted over the Internet is protected both online and off-line. Online safeguards include both encryption software and a password-protected firewall. However, you should be aware that your information may be subject to interception by third parties during transmission. It may also be intercepted from the user's computer.

User information is protected off-line in a variety of ways. All computers in Baptist Health Systems' network are accessible only via password. No employee is permitted to share his/her password. Only employees who need access to the information to perform a specific job (for example, an admissions clerk) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

If you have any questions related to the security of personally identifiable information collected from this site, please send e-mail to baptist.healthline@mbhs.org.

3. How do we use cookies?

In some cases, Baptist may collect data through cookies and other monitoring technologies. Cookies are unique identifiers that we transfer to your device to enable our systems to recognize your device and to provide features such as personalized information on mbhs.org and advertisements on other websites.

We may authorize third parties to use cookies and other monitoring technologies to compile information about the use of mbhs.org or interaction with advertisements that appear online on or on behalf of mbhs.org.

The “help” feature on most browsers provide instructions about managing cookies, including steps to delete or reject them. Keep in mind, however, that some services will not be available when you disable cookies. Examples include paying for services online.

4. Do we share information?

Baptist does not sell information to third parties. In certain cases, Baptist may share information with third parties to provide and improve our products and services, send announcements, marketing materials or other communications, process your requests, or otherwise administer our business. For example, Baptist may use third-party service providers to facilitate our services and provide operations for one or more aspects available through our website. Such third-party service providers may, in certain circumstances, require a visitor's personally identifiable information in order to facilitate certain services and provide such operations. For instance, Baptist uses a third-party service provider for processing certain billing, credit card and donation transactions and to administer applications for open positions.

Baptist’s website contains links to other websites, which may direct you to an external website or which may be displayed within a frame on the Baptist site, including co-branded or other affiliated sites which may or may not be owned or operated by Baptist. Links to Baptist’s website may also be featured on independent third-party websites. Baptist has no control, and is not responsible for, the privacy practices of other websites that may host links to Baptist’s website or that you may visit through links or frames on Baptist’s website, including such sites' use of any information (such as IP number, browser type, or usage history) collected when visitors to Baptist’s website click through links to such sites or access such sites through frames. We recommend that you review individual site privacy policies before providing any information on such websites.

5. What are your options regarding your information?

Information collected from certain portions of our website allows us to store names and addresses, and other personal information. In some cases, we may use this information to send promotional materials. If you prefer not to receive promotional material from Baptist Health Systems, call 1-800-948-6262.
