COMPANY PRACTICES REGARDING YOUR PRIVACY
We at Bosley Inc. are committed to respecting your online privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of any information you share with us by using our web site. The confidentiality of the medical records of all Bosley patients has been and continues to be strictly protected. We release medical information regarding one of our patients whenever the patient instructs us to do so, or whenever we are required to do so by legal process.
YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
California Civil Code section 1798.83 permits users of our website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to [email protected].
California has passed legislation requiring certain specific disclosures be made available to California residents who use the Internet and provide information that may be used for marketing purposes. That legislation requires any business that discloses a customer’s personal information (as defined by the act) to any third party for direct marketing purposes to provide the customer a method for obtaining the names, addresses and certain other specified details of anyone who might have received that personal information.
Additionally, in accordance with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA), effective January 1, 2020, we have created a specific CCPA disclosure and instructions page for California residents. Note, any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this notice.
The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. … You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months.
