Information We Collect

When you view Forsyth’s website, you do so anonymously. We do not collect any personal information that identifies you unless you specifically provide us with that contact information voluntarily. Personal information includes information that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, social security number, e-mail address or telephone number.

The only personal information that Forsyth obtains through its website is supplied voluntarily by website visitors. By submitting personal information, you grant Forsyth the right to transmit, monitor, retrieve, store and use your information in connection with the operation of the website. Personal information is always stored in a secure database.

How We Use This Information

Forsyth uses the information you provide to fulfill online requests, process credit card information and respond to inquiries.

Requested information on voluntary forms is used to provide the services that you request, such as event registration, dental appointment requests, and clinical study participation requests.

Only authorized staff at Forsyth have access to your information, including those who need the information provided to perform a specific task.

Data Security

Forsyth makes every effort to ensure that your personal information remains as secure as possible.

Although we endeavor to protect your personal information, Forsyth cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us through online applications, and you do so at your own risk. Depending on the nature of the inquiry, your communication could be discarded or archived. If you wish, you can contact us instead by telephone at the numbers provided throughout our site.

Online Forms

Forms provided on Forsyth’s website are meant for feedback or general purposes only, and they do not request confidential health information. Although every attempt is made to provide security measures in the transmission of information, patients should not use online forms to submit confidential health care or other information. Forsyth is not responsible if unauthorized parties gain access to the confidential information shared in the online forms.To protect your privacy, please do not use online forms to communicate information that you consider confidential.

Newsletter/Press Release Subscriptions

If you subscribe to the newsletter published by Forsyth and distributed by e-mail, we will maintain your e-mail address in a private distribution list. Messages sent electronically do not reveal recipients’ e-mail addresses or any other personal information.

E-mail Information

Occasionally, we will request personal information from you in order to deliver requested materials, respond to your questions or provide information.  Forsyth retains personal information on file, but does not share, sell, license or transmit this information with third parties or external vendors unless required to do so by legal, judicial or governmental proceedings. If you e-mail us, your e-mail information will not be used outside of this system without your permission. We do not use your e-mail address for any other purpose.

Please note that e-mail is considered a non-encrypted (and therefore non-secure) form of communication, and it can be accessed and viewed by others without your knowledge and permission. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use e-mail to communicate information that you consider confidential.
