Web Browsing Information

Information about visitors to this site may be placed in a cookie file or may be accumulated in databases for demographic purposes or to aid you in requesting health information, resources, or services.

The only personally-identifiable information in PeaceHealth files is information you provide voluntarily and PeaceHealth will not use any information collected for any purpose other than as explicitly stated when the information is requested.

Some information which is not personally-identifiable may be collected automatically. Examples of this include the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you are using. Such information helps us tailor the features of our website to provide greatest access.


PeaceHealth encourages all parents to instruct their children in the safe and responsible use of their personally-identifiable information (name, address, telephone number, or email address) while using the Internet.

A Note About Cookies

Web sites can use your browser software to place a file called a cookie on your computer. Each cookie file is different and depends on the web site that created it. By design, a cookie file is intended to be available to and make sense only to the web site that created it. By using the cookie file the web site can remember you and your interests from your last visit and customize what you see each time without asking you for the same information over and over. (For instance, telling you about health resources in your specific area because you've volunteered what zip code you live in.)

PeaceHealth uses cookies only for the purpose of demographics, customizing your visit to our site, and for Google analytics.

Google Analytics uses “cookies” to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

Additionally, nearly all Internet browsers allow you to specify whether you want to allow cookies to be placed on your computer. You should also be able to delete any and all cookies at any time. Since some sites require you to register and select a password you may wish to be selective in deleting cookies. Otherwise, you'll be asked to select a new password every time you visit. And some sites will not work at all if you will not accept cookies because they contain information needed for the current session. (For instance, to differentiate between your session and anyone else also currently connected.)

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by PeaceHealth and Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
