Collection of information

By using this website, you consent to the collection and use of information as discussed below. Except as disclosed in this policy and the Notice of Privacy Practices, we do not collect any identifiable information about visitors to this site.

Information we automatically collect from you

To improve your overall experience with the Services, we routinely gather data on activity at this Service site, such as how many people visit the site, the pages they visit, where they come from, how long they stay on the site, etc. The data is collected on an aggregate, anonymous basis, which means that no personally identifiable information is associated with the data. This data helps us improve the Service for you, including site content and overall usage. The information is not shared with other organizations for their independent use.

We may use third-party software in connection with your activity on our Site for website maintenance, improvement, and the provision of targeted advertising. These third-party vendors may use technology that tracks your use of this website.
One third party software we use is Google Analytics to collect website data that allows us to get a better understanding of how our site visitors interact with our online content. If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website or download information, Google Analytics will automatically gather and store certain information about your visit. This information does not identify you personally and is used in a general way to help us improve our website and tell us the number of visitors to our site each day.

Our web server automatically collects and records the following information:

  • Aggregate information on what pages are accessed;
  • Address of the website that linked to us (referral URL);
  • Date and time you access our site;
  • Name and release number of web browser software used;
  • Operating system used; and
  • Visitor's IP address.

We do not automatically collect the full email address of visitors to our website. The only way we obtain your name or email address is when you choose to provide that information to us. Examples of how you might provide us with such personal information include:

  • Completing a survey or feedback form;
  • Email us with a comment or question; or
  • Subscribing to our email notification service.

How we collect information from you

To collect information about your use of the Services, we use various technologies including cookies, device identifiers, and similar technologies such as pixels, web beacons, and local storage.

1. Web logs

We maintain standard web logs that record data about all visitors and customers who use this site and we store this information for 30 days. These logs may contain the Internet domain from which you access the site (such as,, etc.); the IP address which is automatically assigned to your computer when you get on the Internet (a static IP address may be identifiable as being connected to you, while a dynamic address is usually not identifiable); the type of browser and operating system you use; the date and time you visited the site; the pages you viewed on the site; the address of the website you linked from, if any.

All web logs are stored securely and may only be accessed by our employees or designees on a need-to-know basis for a specific purpose. We use web log information to help us design our site, to identify popular features, to resolve user, hardware, and software problems, and to make the site more useful to visitors.

2. Internet cookies

We may place Internet "cookies" on the computer hard drives of visitors to this Service site. Information we obtain from cookies helps us to tailor our site to be more helpful and efficient for you. The cookie consists of a unique identifier that does not contain information about you or your health history. We use two types of cookies, "session" cookies and "persistent" cookies.

A session cookie is temporary and expires after you end a session and close your web browser. We use session cookies to help customize your experience on our site, maintain your signed-on status as you navigate through our features, and to track your "click path" through our web pages.

Persistent cookies remain on your device after you've exited from our site, and we use them for several reasons. For instance, we may place a persistent cookie on your device that will let us know when you come back to visit our site. We sometimes use this type of persistent cookie with a "web beacon" (see below). Persistent cookies will not contain any personal information about you such as an HonorHealth Health/Medical Record number.

We allow you to manage your cookie preferences to select the categories of cookies you may want to remove.  To utilize this Service, you must allow for the use of necessary cookies, which allows for basic website functionality.  You will have the choice of whether to allow cookies for analytics, marketing, and functionality.  Your selected preference may impact your usability of the Services.

You may also have software on your computer that will allow you to decline or deactivate Internet cookies, but if you do so, some features of this site may not work properly for you. For instructions on how to remove cookies from your hard drive, go to your browser's help file for detailed instructions and browser updates available from the browser licensor. In addition, further information regarding cookies may be available on other websites or from your Internet service provider. Chrome, Safari, FireFox, and Edge are common browsers.

3. Web beacons

We may also occasionally use "web beacons" (also known as "clear gifs," "web bugs, " "1-pixel gifs," etc.) that allow us to collect non-personal information about your visit to our website. Web beacons are tiny images, placed on a Web page, that can tell us if you've gone to a particular area on our Service site. For example, if you've given us permission to send you e-mails, we may send you an e-mail that offers links to more information on our website. If you click a link from that e-mail and visit our website, the web beacon indicates to us that our e-mail communication generated a click to our website. We do not collect any personal health information with a web beacon, and do not link web beacons with any other personal health information you've given us.

Since Web beacons are used in conjunction with persistent cookies (described above), if you set your browser to decline or deactivate cookies, Web beacons cannot function.

Information you provide us

To improve your overall experience with the Services, before permitting you to use certain parts of the Services, we may require you to create an account or provide information, including personal information, to us.  The exact information we need to collect depends on the purpose of the form.

1. Use of data received in electronic forms

Should you submit information on a pre-registration form using this Service, the data ("Data") therein may become part of a designated record set that we create for you. However, such Data will not be reviewed by a healthcare provider and will not be deemed part of our designated record set unless and until you are registered in person at our medical facility. 
We may use a third-party vendors to help us manage some of our e-mail communications with you. While we may supply these vendors with e-mail addresses of those we wish them to contact, your e-mail address is never used for any purpose other than to communicate with you on our behalf. When you click on a link in an e-mail, you may temporarily be redirected through one of the vendor's servers (although this process will be invisible to you) which will register that you've clicked on that link, and have visited our Service site. We never share any information, other than your e-mail address, with our third-party e-mail vendor, which does not share these e-mail addresses with anyone else.

Opt out

If a user makes a request to receive information in an ongoing manner through this Service by providing their e-mail address (for example, requesting a subscription to one of our online publications), a user may make a request to discontinue future mailings. Similarly, if you receive information about a HonorHealth service through e-mail, you may make a request to discontinue receiving similar messages in the future. All such materials sent to you by e-mail will contain information about how to opt out.

2. Website chat communications

We record and share your chat communications on our website with our third-party vendor to manage and optimize our chats with you. In addition to the chat communications, we collect and share usage data, including the device and browser and/or application you use to access the chat, the time and date of your chat, the time spent chatting, and the URL from which you initiated the chat.

3. Messages and transactions

Comments or questions sent to us using the contact-us e-mail will be shared with HonorHealth staff and health care professionals who are most able to address your concerns.
