Log Files; Web Beacons

The EAP may use log file information sent by your web browser (which may include information such as web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform type, and other information) to analyze trends, administer the Site, track the movement of users, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Collection of personal information

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted through the Site. In the Ask the EAP section, there is an opportunity to conduct email exchanges with the EAP staff. These email exchanges may contain personal information about you or a person close to you. The Site Privacy and Data Collection Policy provides additional information on the types of data collected and how we use and protect that data. Also, a separate Terms & Conditions for the Ask the EAP email system is provided in that section.

Unless required (see Required Disclosures below), personal information that you choose to share with us through these emails – including your email address, health interest, and your questions about our program and your health status – is used only for communication and record purposes, and in an aggregate form, to analyze and improve our website and/or business practices.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. Likewise, we use your phone numbers only to respond to your emails. All information shared in the email exchanges is encrypted for security during transfer over the Internet to our servers. 

We may use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and systems. We collect and track general site traffic, site entrance points and navigation, and length of stay.

Our business customers (i.e., your employer) receive periodic utilization reports that detail the number and types of services that we provide to their employees. Employers use these utilization reports to assess the value of purchasing the EAP service packages. Information that will identify individuals is never shared.

Finally, we will not use or share the personally identifiable information that has been provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
