    2. Information We May Collect and How We May Use or Distribute Your Information

      • General Web site usage information

        To monitor site usage and improve the quality of our web site, we gather information about the use of our site. We use web server logs and industry-standard web site statistics software to count the number of users who visit our web site and to count the number of views of particular pages, as well as to track other general statistics about our web site. We do not track individual users to our web site.

        At times Einstein may share with third parties the aggregate, anonymous information about overall usage of our web site and other Internet services that we collect, in order to provide general information about our Internet services, or establish sponsorships or other business relationships. We do not share any information about specific users.

      • Information Collected to Process Transactions/Inquiries/Requests for Service

        When visitors to our web site request services such as physician reference or health information, we will collect information necessary to process your request. This may include your name, address, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail address, and other personal information, if necessary. We have taken and will continue to take reasonable steps to secure your personal information once we receive it. However, please understand that no one can give an absolute assurance that information intended to be maintained private, whether transmitted via the Internet or otherwise, cannot be accessed inappropriately or unlawfully by third parties.
