Except as requested by you, we do not disclose your personal information to other organizations. As the Internet is not secure or private, unauthorized people may be able to intercept, read and possibly modify e-mail you send or are sent by JC’s Recovery Center. You must protect your e-mail account, password and computer against access by unauthorized people.
Since e-mail can be used to spread viruses, some which cause e-mail messages to be sent to people who you do not intend to send e-mail messages to, you should install and maintain virus protection software on your computer or device.
Since e-mails can be copied, printed and forwarded by people to whom you send e-mails, you should be careful regarding to whom you send e-mails.
As your employer may claim ownership of, or the right to access, the e-mail account issued to you by your e-mail, you should avoid using an employer issued e-mail account to communicate with JC’s Recovery Center. JC’s Recovery Center may forward e-mails as appropriate for treatment, and other related reasons. As such, JC’s Recovery Center staff members, other than the recipient, may have access to e-mails that you send. Such access will only be to such persons who have a right to access your e-mail to provide services to you. Otherwise, JC’s Recovery Center will not, otherwise, forward e-mails to independent third parties without your prior written consent, except as authorized or required by law.
You should carefully word your e-mail messages so the information provided clearly, yet briefly, describes the information you intend to convey. You are responsible for correcting any unclear or incorrect information.
JC’s Recovery Center reserves the right to save your e-mail and include your e-mail or information contained within your e-mail in your medical record.
E-mails may not be the only form of communication that JC’s Recovery Center will use to communicate with you. Additionally, JC’s Recovery Center may decide that it is not in your best interest to continue to communicate with you by e-mail. In such case, JC’s Recovery Center will notify that it no longer intends to communicate with you by e-mail.

- Primary personal information (such as name and contact details)
- Identifiers (such as social security numbers, credit card details, website password)
- Specific personal information (such as survey information, racial or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, medical information)
While such secure transmission methods provide reasonable protections against unauthorized access, if you have concerns regarding the transmission of sensitive information (such as contact or medical information), you should consider using non-electronic communication methods.
We have implemented security policies, rules, and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from:
- # Unauthorized access
- # Improper use or disclosure
- # Unauthorized modification
- # Unlawful destruction or accidental loss
All of our employees and data processors who have access to, and are associated with, the processing of personal information are obliged to respect the confidentiality of our visitors’ personal information.
