Privacy Policy

Modern information and communication technologies play a fundamental role in the activities of an organization like Blacksburg Acupuncture. We are based in the United States.

Our principal activities are: Biomedical Acupuncture

This privacy policy is meant to inform you (the user) how Blacksburg Acupuncture and its employees and contractors (“we,” “us,” or “our”) collect and use your personal information.

Changes to this policy

While this policy may change from time to time, and at our sole discretion, we attempt to comply as fully as possible with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) set out by the EU Parliament in April 2016. We will never alter our usage of your data without your consent, even if we change this policy, except as required by law.

What does this policy cover?

This policy applies only to your dealings with Blacksburg Acupuncture and to the domain https://www.acupunctureblacksburg.com and its contents. On this website, we may occasionally link to other outside websites or services. Each of these outside sites has its own privacy policy and is not covered by ours.

What is personal information?

For the purposes of this policy, personal information is anything that can be tied directly to you as an individual. This includes information such as:

  • Names
  • Usernames
  • Passwords
  • Email Addresses
  • IP Addresses
  • Mailing Addresses
  • Phone Numbers

and any other information that could be, alone or together, traced back to you as an individual.

What information do we collect?

When you visit this website or interact with us (on the phone, in person, via email, etc.) you disclose two types of information: Information that you voluntarily disclose (such as signing your name to an email or leaving your phone number on our voice mail) and information that gets automatically collected (such as a server logging that you visited our website).

What information do we automatically collect?

While we do not request or require any personal information as a condition of your use of this website, our server does log usage information. This includes your IP address, as well as some basic information about the device that you used to connect to our website.

We automatically collect no other personal information from you as part of your use of this website.

Cookies

Cookies are small files stored by your browser on your computer, and when you access our website, the information in those cookies is sent to our server along with your browser’s request (a “request” is, essentially, your web browser asking our server for information, and the server responds by sending you a webpage to view).

We utilize basic analytics cookies to track how users make use of our website and how they found us. We will never use these cookies for any advertising or marketing purposes. We use them only for analytics.

How will we use your information?

Automatically collected information is used exclusively for the purpose of improving our website and troubleshooting errors. That information is never shared with an outside source except as required by law. We will never buy, sell, or trade your personal information for any reason.

Voluntarily provided information (most commonly your name and contact information) is used for the sole purpose of replying to any inquiries you make to the best of our abilities. Should you choose to enter into a business arrangement with us, further usage of your personal data may be required for us to complete the services we provide. This data will only be used as necessary for the completion of the agreed-upon services, and the minimum information necessary will be requested.

Who has access to your data?

We are the only people who have access to your data. We do not share this access with anybody else, except as required by law.

At your direction, or as necessary to fulfill the terms of a business arrangement that we make with you, we may be required to disclose some information to a third party. This disclosure will only occur if necessary for the completion of the work we do for you. For example, if you opt to pay for a service by credit card, your name and credit card information will be shared with our credit card billing service.

In all cases, the disclosure of your personal information will only occur if it is absolutely necessary for the completion of our contract with you, and we will only disclose the minimum amount of information necessary.

How long is your data kept?

Our analytics data is kept forever. However, it cannot be tied to you.

Should you choose to email us, our emails are retained indefinitely as well.

This website is not directed to children under the age of 13.
