Access to the site and the information contained herein is provided “as is” and “as available” without any warranty of any kind, express or implied. ViaKon does not warrant the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of the materials on this site and to the fullest extent permissible pursuant to applicable law, ViaKon disclaims all warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to any implied warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement, with respect to any information obtained through the site.

Without limiting the foregoing, ViaKon does not warrant that access to the site will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that defects, if any, will be corrected; nor does ViaKon make any representations about the accuracy, reliability, currency, quality, completeness, usefulness, performance, security, legality or suitability of the site or any of the information contained therein. You expressly agree that your use of the site and your reliance upon any of its contents is at your sole risk.

You shall be solely and fully responsible for any damage to the site or any computer system, any loss of data, or any improper use or disclosure of information on the site caused by you. ViaKon cannot and does not assume any responsibility for any loss, damages or liabilities arising from the failure of any telecommunications infrastructure, or the internet or for your misuse of any of advice, ideas, information, instructions or guidelines accessed through the site.

Limitation of liability

In the event of any problem with the site or any of its content, you agree that your sole remedy is to cease using the site. Under no circumstances shall ViaKon or any ViaKon licensor or supplier be liable in any way for your use of the site or any of its content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, any infringement by any content of the intellectual property rights or other rights of third parties, or for any losses or damages of any kind arising directly or indirectly out of the use, inability to use, or the results of use of the site, and any web site linked to the site, or the materials or information contained on any or all such sites.

Under no circumstances shall ViaKon or its licensors or suppliers or providers be liable for any punitive, exemplary, consequential, incidental, indirect or special damages (including, without limitation, any personal injury, lost profits, business interruption, loss of programs or other data on your computer or otherwise) arising from or in connection with your use of the site, whether under a theory of breach of contract, negligence, strict liability or otherwise, even if we or they have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

ViaKon Medical Health Privacy & Confidentiality Statement

We recognize the importance of protecting the confidentiality of medical and health-related information and other personal data and we are committed to protecting it in accordance with all applicable legal requirements. This statement discusses how we acquire, use and disclose your personal health and other information and our policies and practices for keeping information private and secure. We urge you to review this policy carefully and to check back periodically for revisions. You can tell when this policy has been modified by looking at the date that it was last updated at the top of this page.

If you use our services, you acknowledge and agree to the terms of this policy, as it may be modified from time to time as provided above.

Personally Identifiable Information

To serve your health needs, ViaKon collects information directly from you on our website, or orally, or using offline forms. If you provide us with express, written permission, or an authorization, we may also get information from third parties such as your health care provider or physician. All health information that identifies you is referred to as “personally identifiable information” and is shared with our network of hospitals to provide you with a health service solution. Your personally identifiable information will be used only as necessary to provide the services that you request, or as otherwise required by law.

We are not medical professionals and will not evaluate the information that you provide to us and will not advise you based on the information that you submit or arrange to have provided to us.

We have implemented reasonable precautions to ensure that your personally identifiable information is retained in a secure fashion and protected against loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. We only permit authorized employees to access your personally identifiable information and they may use it only for authorized business purposes. As effective as our safeguards may be, no security system is completely impenetrable, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of our database, nor can we guarantee that the personally identifiable information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.

We will not sell or otherwise transfer your personally identifiable information to another party for any purpose other than to provide the services that you request. In the unlikely event that assets relating to our site are sold or transferred to another party, your personally identifiable information may be transferred to this acquiring entity. Finally, we may disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties if we believe that we are required to do so in order to comply with law (including in response to court orders and subpoenas).

Non Personally-Identifiable Information

If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the web site, do searches, read pages, or download information, we will automatically gather and store certain information about your visit that does not identify you personally (“non personally-identifiable information”). Non personally-identifiable information may include IP address, the domain name and browser that you use to access the internet, the pages that you visited on our site and the address of the website that you visited immediately prior to visiting our site. We use non personally-identifiable information to help us make our site more useful to visitors — to learn about the number of visitors to our site, what part of the site they are interested in, how long they use the site, and the types of technology our visitors use. WE DO NOT TRACK OR RECORD INFORMATION ABOUT THE IDENTITY OF INDIVIDUALS AND THEIR VISITS TO OUR WEBSITE. Sometimes we write a small file on the user’s computer called a “session cookie.” Session cookies automatically expire when users leave a Web site; session cookies retain information only during the session or for the purpose of completing a particular online transaction, without any capacity to track users over time and across different web sites.

Our website includes links to other websites. In providing access to these linked sites, we are by no means endorsing their products or services. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of the linked sites and expressly disclaim all responsibility and liability associated with your use of the linked sites. We recommend that you review the privacy statements posted on those sites and understand their policies on using and disclosing personal information.

We do not collect, store, or disclose information about children under the age of 18 without parental consent. If we receive information from a child that we know to be under the age of 18, we will use that information only to inform the child that we require parental consent.
