Columbus Regional Hospital reserves the right to change, modify, add, or delete portions of this Privacy Policy at any time.

    Personal Information

    A visitor can access and browse our entire site at any time without providing any personal information. Columbus Regional Hospital does not collect information that would personally identify you unless you choose to provide it.

    In addition, Columbus Regional Hospital does not share any personally identifiable information of any individual with any third party unrelated to Columbus Regional Hospital, except in situations where we must provide information for legal purposes or investigations, or if so directed by the patient through a proper authorization.

    Cookies

    Columbus Regional Hospital may place small data files, called "cookies," in your browser's file storage area of your computer's hard drive. Cookies are a standard Internet technology that allow us to both store and retrieve login information on a user's system. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a site visitor's computer to gather and keep track of information related to you. These cookies automatically identify your browser to our server whenever you interact with a service provided on our Web site. Cookies can store your preferences through a password you select to access a Web site. Cookies also help us review Web site traffic patterns and improve our site. Most browsers automatically accept these cookies, but you usually can change your browser setting to prevent the acceptance of cookies, though this may prevent you from using some of the features of our Web site. Information collected through cookies is not linked to any personally identifiable information.

    IP Addresses

    The Web server automatically collects the IP (which stands for Internet Protocol) address of the computers that access our site. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you access the Internet. It is not truly personally identifiable information because many different individuals can access the Internet via the same computer. We use this information in aggregate form to understand how our site is being used and how we can better serve visitors.

    Please note that although such information is not personally identifiable, we can determine from an IP address a visitor's Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.

    Registration/Membership & Security

    To use the password-protected member services available on this website, you may choose to become a "member" by registering as a member. In consideration of your membership you agree to: (a) voluntarily provide true, accurate and current information about yourself; and (b) to maintain and update this personally identifiable or protected health information to keep it true, accurate and current. Upon registration you will be assigned a unique member username and a password for access to the password-protected member services. Your member username and password should be kept strictly confidential to prevent unauthorized use. You are responsible for safeguarding and maintaining the secrecy of your member username and password at all times. You agree to notify Columbus Regional Hospital promptly of any unauthorized use of your member username and password. You will remain liable for any use of the member services unless and until you notify Columbus Regional Hospital of the unauthorized use of your member username and password. Columbus Regional Hospital may suspend your membership without notice to you in the event that you do not use the website for an extended period of time.

    If any information provided by you is untrue or inaccurate, Columbus Regional Hospital has the right to terminate your membership and refuse to provide you with use of the password-protected member services, without benefit of refund. You understand that Columbus Regional Hospital does not routinely perform background checks on members, and assumes no liability for the accuracy of the personally identifiable or protected health information provided.

    You must be at least 18 years old to register for a membership account on CRH.org. You may cancel your account at any time by notifying Columbus Regional Hospital. Columbus Regional Hospital reserves the right to cancel or remove CRH.org accounts that impersonate another person, are abusive, illegal or are otherwise inappropriate or violate any part of this agreement.
