We use Google Analytics to collect data that allows us to better understand how visitors interact with our website.

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children. In specific forms where we may ask for information about children we take steps to protect the privacy of those children by making reasonable efforts to ensure that a parent has entered or authorized the collection of the child's personal information.
How do we use the information we collect?
Riverside Healthcare does not sell, trade or rent personal information about its website visitors. The information we collect about site visitors is aggregated and used solely to determine general information about how the site is being used.
Email addresses provided by visitors are used to respond to comments submitted through our feedback and surveys forms, when indicated. Email addresses provided when subscribing to email newsletters or notifications are used to distribute this information to the subscribers. Information provided by visitors who choose to establish a personal account is used to furnish personalized pages with the data requested by the visitor, and to send information requested by the visitor.
If a website visitor asks us to send material that cannot be transmitted electronically, we will need to know the visitor's name, email address and mailing address. We will use that information only to fulfill the visitor's request. Website visitors who complete a website survey and indicate a willingness to participate in future surveys are asked to provide their name, email address and telephone number. That information may be shared with carefully screened third parties with whom Riverside Healthcare has business relationships.
