To ensure that your information is secure, we have put in place commercially suitable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect on our site in accord with U.S. and international requirements. Nevertheless, the transmission of information via the internet is not entirely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically over cellular and wireless networks that we do not control.

Data Privacy Rights – California Consumers
Under California law, certain California residents have rights to request specific information about the personal information we collect and/or share about them. These rights are available to California residents who are clients of SurgeonCheck, prospective clients, and/or site visitors or certain other business contacts who share personal information with SurgeonCheck.
Site visitors, prospective clients, and clients may ask for information about the information collected about them. If you have provided personal information to SurgeonCheck, you can request:
- To know the categories of personal information we have collected about you, the reason(s) we have collected it, the sources of the data, and the categories of third-parties with whom we share the information.
- To know the specific pieces of information we have collected about you (in addition to the information described above).
- If you have only provided personal information as a result of browsing this site, i.e., you did not complete any forms or send SurgeonCheck any e-mails or other communications, SurgeonCheck is unable to provide information about the specific personal information it holds about you.
You may also request that SurgeonCheck delete the personal information it holds about you. However, requests to delete data are subject to various limitations by statute and SurgeonCheck may retain certain data as permitted by law.
Data requests can be made by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or the requestor’s authority to make the request. An authorized agent may request information on your behalf if they provide evidence of their legal authority to submit such requests.
Verifying your identity is required before we respond to your request. To verify your identity, we will collect basic personal information about you to match with our records. Next, you will receive an e-mail confirmation that your request was received, as well as information about additional steps that may be required to confirm your identity and verify appropriate contact information. You may make data requests no more than twice in a 12-month period.
We will try to respond to verifiable requests within 45 days. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in a written response. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under California law.
