Some Covenant Healthcare applications use "cookies." A cookie is a small data file that certain web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them.

But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie is only a text file and cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies can track user traffic patterns, recognize your computer's browser when you return, and could provide personalized content without requiring sign-in.

When a Covenant Healthcare application accepts credit cards or any other particularly sensitive information for any of its services, it encrypts all ordering information, such as your name and credit card number, in order to protect its confidentiality.
Unless otherwise prohibited by state or federal law, rule or regulation you will be granted the ability to correct or adjust any personally identifiable information. We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to review or make corrections to your information.
