Information Kansas Health Information Network Collects

Kansas Health Information Network strives to offer its visitors the many advantages of internet technology and to provide an interactive and personalized experience. We may collect and use personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, street address, telephone number and other information, subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Kansas Health Information Network’s collection and storage of information about you depends, in part, on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. You can visit many pages on the web site without providing any information. Other pages may prompt you to provide personal information.

You may also provide information when you request information from us. Kansas Health Information Network also collects information automatically when you access its website and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, Kansas Health Information Network may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use “cookie” technology. Among other things, the “cookie” may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter particular information while visiting our site.

As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies. Disabling “cookies”, however, may limit your ability to access certain portions of the site. Additionally we may not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.

What Kansas Health Information Network Does With the Information It Collects

Kansas Health Information Network will use your information only as permitted by law. Aggregated information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. As one example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive. Aggregated information may occasionally be shared with Kansas Health Information Network’s advertisers and business partners.

Kansas Health Information Network may collect personal information about you through various technology for the purpose of enhancing your visit to this web site and to make the visit more efficient and productive. Kansas Health Information Network may also use this information to respond to inquiries.

Kansas Health Information Network does not sell your personally identifiable information to third parties. When you provide personally identifiable information to us, however, we may share it with our business partners and third-party contractors solely for the purpose of fulfilling your requests, carrying out our obligations to you, or offering our products and services.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, Kansas Health Information Network reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as Kansas Health Information Network determines, in its sole discretion, to be necessary to satisfy any law, regulation, governmental request, or business need or to avoid liability for Kansas Health Information Network or any third party.
