This Policy covers how UCSF Health collects, uses, and shares website user data.
Collection of data
This Policy covers the treatment of two types of information collected on our websites:
- Personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information, such as email address, name, phone number, etc., may be gathered when you access or use the UCSF Health website. This information is only collected when it is volunteered by you – for example when you complete a form to request an appointment or refer a patient.
- Non-personally identifiable information. This site may collect, at least temporarily, non-personally identifiable information such as: Internet Protocol (IP) address of computer being used; web pages requested; referring web page; cookies; browser type used; date and time; and other Internet tags and navigational data.
Use of data
Personally identifiable information may be collected to respond to user requests for services or for marketing and outreach communications.
Non-personally identifiable information may be collected to improve the UCSF Health website user experience and for troubleshooting.

Sharing of data
Other than as required by laws that guarantee public access to certain types of information, or in response to subpoenas or other legal instruments that authorize disclosure, personally identifiable information is not disclosed without your consent.
If a UCSF website collects restricted information, including but not limited to, electronic protected health information (ePHI) or personally identifiable information (PII), UCSF requires the use of the industry standard security protocol known as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
