What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Who we are
Contact form submission data — IP address, name, email address, and message — is submitted to the Akismet service owned by Automattic for the sole purpose of spam checking. The actual submission data is not stored in the database of the site but is emailed via SSL directly to the office of Dr. McKay. This email will include a timestamp, name, email address and message. This information may be printed for our files. Only the information you fill out on the form is sent, and we do not collect information such as your IP address when you contact us. None of the information is stored on our website.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Data Used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code. Important: The site owner does not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
Who we share your data with
We do not share any of our information with anyone. All interactions with other sites such as our prescription service and appointment booking fall under their data policy. We use two vendors to make it easy for you to book appointments and order prescription refills.
We do not retain any of your data online. However, any information we receive via the contact form will be printed/scanned and retained in your file if you become a patient. If you do not become a patient, this information will be deleted from our files in 90 days. As we do not retain any information online, we do not offer a function for you to export or erase personal data.
You may contact us at any time for more information on any of these topics by using our simple contact form which is located here.
What third parties we receive data from
If you make an appointment or order a prescription refill through the links on our website, we will receive that information. However, none of that information is ever stored on our website.
Industry regulatory disclosure requirements
We follow all HIPPA regulations in the handling of all data throughout every aspect of our practice.
