An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. All computer identification on the Internet is conducted with IP addresses, which allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. Friva collects IP addresses in order to conduct system administration and to conduct site analysis. If a visitor requests pages from Friva, the Friva servers enter the visitor’s IP address into a log. To maintain visitor anonymity, Friva does not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information. However, Friva will use IP addresses to identify any visitors who refuse to comply with Friva’s in-house rules or terms of service, and to identify visitors who threaten our service, site, customers or others.
In order to provide visitors with greater value, Friva may provide links to various third party Web sites. However, even if a third-party affiliation exists between Friva and that destination site, Friva exercises no authority over linked sites, each of which maintains independent privacy and data collection policies and procedures. Friva assumes no responsibility or liability for these independent methods or actions and is not responsible for the independent policies or procedures of destination sites. Similarly, Friva cannot take responsibility for the privacy initiatives or the content of such Web sites. These destination links are provided only for your convenience, and as such, you access them at your own risk. However, Friva wishes to ensure the integrity of the Friva Web site and its destination links, so any comments pertaining to the Friva Web site or any sites accessed through Friva links are greatly appreciated.
We have installed a number of security measures to protect the confidentiality of user and patient information. We have a firewall to prevent unauthorized access to our systems. User and patient information are managed in secure databases on the Friva server that sits behind this firewall. Friva employs strict security measures to safeguard online transactions. Payment transactions are conducted with third party merchant card processors using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 128 bit encryption. SSL encryption protects any personal information you send over the Internet by making it virtually impossible for that information to be deciphered.
