This privacy statement explains the visitor data Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) collects, how CHCS collects it, and for what purposes.

Cookies

This website (www.chcs.org) uses cookies, small text files placed on your device, which web servers can retrieve later. CHCS uses cookies for analyzing how www.chcs.org performs, as well as to improve and develop CHCS publications and programs.

You can use controls in your internet browser to limit how the websites you visit are able to use cookies by clearing or blocking cookies.

Data CHCS Collects

CHCS collects data from you through your interaction with www.chcs.org. You provide some of this data directly (for example, by signing up to receive email updates), and CHCS gets some data indirectly by collecting information about how you use www.chcs.org through the use of cookies.

To receive email updates from CHCS, we require some personal (identifiable) data to be provided. If you do not want to provide this data, you cannot receive email updates.

Likewise, CHCS collects anonymous (de-identifiable) data as you interact with www.chcs.org. CHCS is unable to suspend this data collection on an individual basis. However, you can control the collection of this date by changing how your internet browser uses cookies, including clearing or blocking cookies.

How and Why CHCS Uses Data

CHCS uses identifiable data to: (1) provide targeted email updates about CHCS publications and programs, as well as to improve and develop CHCS publications and programs; and (2) to protect our blog from spam comments. To perform targeted email updates, identifiable data is submitted to MailChimp, an email marketing service provider. Learn about MailChimp’s privacy policy. To protect our blog from spam comments, identifiable data is submitted to Akismet when a visitor posts a comment on CHCS’ blog. Learn more about Akismet’s privacy policy.

CHCS also uses de-identifiable data to analyze www.chcs.org performance, as well as to improve and develop CHCS publications and programs. To perform this function, de-identifiable data is submitted to Google Analytics. Learn about Google Analytics’ privacy policy. Note, while Google Analytics offers CHCS the ability to collect demographic data about www.chcs.org visitors (including age, gender, and interests), CHCS does not collect this data.

CHCS also does not combine collected identifiable data with de-identifiable data to make de-identifiable data identifiable. Under no circumstance will CHCS share identifiable data with any third parties without your permission.

How to Access and Control Your Data

You can control identifiable data that CHCS has obtained, and exercise your data protection rights, by contacting CHCS at mail@chcs.org or by unsubscribing from email updates.

You can use controls in your internet browser to limit how the websites you visit are able to use cookies by clearing or blocking cookies. Additionally, de-identifiable data collected by CHCS via Google Analytics automatically expires and will be deleted after 38 months.
