Website Privacy Policy


Alameda Pharmacy is sensitive to protecting the privacy of our website visitors. The purpose of this Privacy Statement is to let you know how we handle information received from you through this website, as well as inform you of the risks involved when you communicate or provide information by way of the Internet. Keep in mind that changes are periodically made to this Privacy Statement without notice and it is your responsibility to review the Statement when you use this website. By continuing to use this site, you consent to any changes to our policy.

During your visit to our website, remember that the medical and health information presented here is intended to be general in nature, and should not be viewed as a substitute for professional advice. Please consult with a healthcare professional for all matters relating to personal medical and healthcare issues.

Health and Medical Information

Certain health and medical information about you is protected under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) and applicable state law. This information may be provided by you online or offline, or may be collected by us from other methods such as through a healthcare provider. We protect covered health and medical information as required by HIPAA and applicable state law. Similarly, we may use covered health and medical information as permitted by HIPAA and applicable state law.

To read more about our privacy practices regarding health and medical information under HIPAA, please read our Notice of Privacy Practices (Patient Privacy Policy). In the event of any conflict between our HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices and this Website Privacy Statement, the terms of our HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices shall control.

Security/Confidentiality

No transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. We will, however, use a number of physical security methods (such as locks and alarm systems); electronic security methods (passwords and encryption methods); and procedural methods (rules regarding the handling and use of information) to protect the security and integrity of information submitted through this website.

Information Collection and Storage

Personally Identifiable Information: We do not collect information that personally identifies you unless you choose to provide it to us (for example, web pages that allow you to send an e-mail message). The personal information you submit is shared only with those people in our organization who need this information to respond to your question or request, and as otherwise permitted by law to allow us to operate our business or to comply with applicable laws.

As used in this Privacy Statement, personal information does not include information protected under HIPAA or applicable state laws, which is protected as described in the section “Health and Medical Information” above.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We collect information that does not personally identify you for various purposes (for example, website usage, traffic patterns, site performance and related statistics based on our tracking record of your visits to our website).

We collect some of this information using persistent “cookies” to recognize a repeat visitor; this helps us collect general information about how our site is viewed. We also collect and log the IP address of each visitor to gather aggregate data on visitors to our site. Keep in mind that neither cookies nor IP addresses are used to collect any personal information from you.

Most email does not provide a completely secure and confidential means of communication. It is possible that your email could be viewed inappropriately by another Internet user. If you choose to provide us with your email, any misaddressing may result in others intercepting, altering, forwarding or using the information without authorization. If you wish to keep your information completely private, you should not use email.

If you receive email at work, your employer may have the right to save and read your email; similarly, your Internet service provider may have the right to save and read your email.

If you share your email account, others may view your emails.

Email can be used unknowingly to spread computer viruses.
