It has never been easier to publish a website. If you own a healthcare practice, a website is not just a great way to advertise your services to potential patients. It can also give you an outlet to share your medical knowledge and expertise with the rest of the world.
In short, privacy policies explain to users:
- What information you collect. This includes technical data such as device identifiers, web addresses, location information, and “cookies.”
- How you will use or analyze any information collected.
- The circumstances under which you may share the information with third parties, including companies that may host your website or provide you with data storage services.
