ANALYTICS

            Like many websites, we use a third party service provider, such as Google Analytics, to collect information about your use of our website. We track data about traffic to our website and your visit to and experience on our website, which information we use to improve our website structure and content.

COOKIES

            Ascension may use cookies to track the use of our website and to facilitate and enhance your experience on our website. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Our cookies enable us to facilitate access to different aspects of our website. For example, by showing when and how you and others visit our website, cookies help us to see which pages of the website are popular and which are not. Cookies can also help us to improve your enjoyment of this website, for example, by remembering your address or other personal information when you request information or services on the website. These may also be used for remarketing purposes, such as to serve up banner ads to you as you use the Internet, as further set forth below.

WEB BEACONS

            Web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or web bugs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, which are used to track the online movements of web users or to access cookies. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on the web pages (or in e-mail) and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Web beacons may be used to deliver or communicate with cookies, to count users who have visited certain pages and to understand usage patterns. These web beacons may belong to us or our third party marketing and analytics vendors and service providers.

 

IP ADDRESSES

            Ascension logs IP addresses for systems administration purposes. IP addresses are not used to track a user’s session. This information only helps us determine how often different areas of our site are visited. We do not link IP address to any information that is personally identifiable.

AGGREGATED INFORMATION

 

            Ascension maintains full rights to any information collected on this website, and may freely collect, use and disclose such information unless prohibited by this Privacy Policy. In addition, we may take personally identifiable information you provide to us and aggregate it with information of other users and customers such that the data no longer identifies you. We may use aggregated information that does not uniquely identify you when it enables us to improve and enrich our services and website content.

RETARGETING THIRD PARTY AD NETWORKS AND BEHAVIORAL ADVERTISING

            As you browse our website, advertising cookies will be placed on your computer so that we can understand what you are interested in. Our display advertising partners may enable us to present you with retargeting advertising on other sites based on your previous interaction with our website. The techniques our partners employ do not collect personal information such as your name, email address, postal address or telephone number.

            We contract with service providers to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet.

They may also use information about your visits to this website to target advertisements for goods and services.

            We do not process credit card information for payment for any products or services you may order from this website. Ascension contracts with a third-party service provider that complies with the payment card industry data security standards (PCI DSS) to collect and process your credit card information. We do not store or maintain any credit card information.

            We limit access to personally identifiable information about you to our employees and third-party service providers who we reasonably believe need to have access to your information to provide you with the information or services you request from Ascension.

            This website has security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur, Ascension uses industry standards, such as Secure Socket Layers (“SSL”) technology, to help safeguard against such occurrences. In certain areas, the information passed between your browser and our system is encrypted with SSL technology to create a protected connection between you and our website to ensure confidentiality. In the event that a breach into our security systems occurs and there is a possibility that an unauthorized person acquires your personal information, Ascension will notify you of such a breach to the extent required under applicable law.

We encourage you to review the privacy policies of such websites before disclosing your personal information to them.

DO NOT TRACK

            We will automatically collect cookies and other non-personally identifying information when you visit this site. Due to this automatic collection, we currently do not have the technical capability to honor do not track requests and therefore cannot honor them at this time.
