This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) tells you about Chemed’s privacy practices governing personal information we may collect when you visit our website (the “Site”), and how we may use and share that information. Your prior activities on the Site may have been governed by an earlier version of this Policy.

The effective date of this Policy is August 20, 2018. From time to time, we may use your information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our Policy. If our information practices do change materially, we will post the changes to our Site and revise our Policy accordingly. In addition, if we have collected personally-identifying information from you, we will notify you and secure your consent before using your personal information in new ways.

What Information Do We Collect?

Personal Information:

We collect personal information you choose to provide to us in connection with your activities on the Site, such as requesting information, signing up for email alerts, and providing comments. This information may include your name, title, company, email address, phone number, and the like.

Other User Information We Collect:

In addition, for each visitor to our Site, we automatically collect certain other potentially identifying information and store it in log files. This information includes (as applicable) browser type and version, operating system and network, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamp. We collect and store this information only in aggregate, or combined, form; we do not connect it to an individual user’s personal information.

Cookies:

A cookie is a small text file that is stored in a user’s computer that recognizes your IP address for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies, but they are associated exclusively with performance and anonymous website traffic. We do not associate cookies with your personal information.

You can reject cookies through your browser. If you reject cookies, you may still use our Site, but your ability to use some of the areas of our Site will be limited.

Analytics:

To determine how many users visit our Site, how often they visit the Site, and to better understand the areas of greatest interest to our visitors, we use tools called “Omniture (Adobe Analytics)” and “New Relic” to compile this information for us. As a result of your visit to our Site, these companies may collect information such as your domain type, your IP address, and clickstream information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of analytics tools with personally identifiable information. For more information about the analytics companies’ ability to use and share information about your visits to this Site, see www.adobe.com/privacy/policy.html and newrelic.com/termsandconditions/privacy.

“Do Not Track” Signals:

We do not currently have the capability to recognize browser “Do Not Track” signals. We adhere to the standards set forth in this Policy.

How Do We Use and Share the Information We Collect?

We store and process your personal information to process and fulfill requests for information that come to us through the Site, and to address comments you submit to us.

We also use information we collect to analyze trends, to administer the Site, and to track users’ movements around the Site. We also use this information to improve the Site and to make it more useful to visitors.

It is possible that, at some time in the future, our company may be sold along with its assets, or may engage in business transactions in which customer information is one of the assets transferred. In such a case, the customer information which we have gathered may be one of the business assets we transfer.

We do not rent or sell email addresses or telephone contact information to unaffiliated third parties, except as described above.

How Long Do We Keep the Information We Collect?

We will retain your personal information in accordance with our continuing need to service this relationship and/or to improve our Site.

Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, and to guard that information against loss, misuse, or alteration.

Please note, however, that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we use commercially reasonable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

How to Correct Information

If you wish to update, correct, or delete any personal information we have about you, send your request to privacy@chemed.com. To help us process the request, please provide sufficient information to allow us to identify you in our records. We reserve the right to ask for information verifying your identity before we disclose or modify any information in our possession.

Links to Third Party Sites

This Policy applies only to information collected by this Site. From time to time, the Site may link you to other websites (“Linked Sites”), some of which are not owned by us, even though they provide goods or services related to our company. We make no representations about the privacy policies or practices of the Linked Sites.

Be careful of disclosing any of your personally identifiable information when leaving our Site. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of every website that collects personally identifiable information.
