Privacy Policy

Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Therapies, PC (MIMIT) is a private practice physician group in the Chicago land area. MIMIT operates under the following set of principles in terms of the way it collects and uses visitor data from its website, themimit.com:

  • The only information MIMIT obtains about individual visitors is that which is supplied voluntarily by visitors.
  • Personally identifiable information (name, e-mail or home address, etc.) is not disclosed to anyone other than the physicians and staff of MIMIT, unless visitors indicate that the information may be shared with a designated group of individuals. (For example, with other physicians involved in the person's medical care.)

LOG FILES AND IP ADDRESSES

An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. All computer identification on the Internet is conducted with IP addresses, which allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. MIMIT collects IP addresses in log files in order to conduct system administration, evaluate aggregate data such as total traffic to the site, and conduct site analyses.


If a visitor requests (clicks on links to) pages within themimit.com, the themimit.com servers enter the visitor's IP address into a log. To maintain visitor anonymity, MIMIT does not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information. However, we do use IP addresses to identify any visitors who refuse to comply with our in-house rules or terms of service, and to identify visitors who threaten our service, site, customers or others.


COOKIES

Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual's hard disk for record keeping purposes. themimit.com does not use cookies.


EXTERNAL LINKS

In order to provide visitors with greater value, MIMIT provides links from themimit.com to other websites. Please be advised that MIMIT is not responsible for, nor does it maintain information about, the privacy policies used by these other sites. When visitors leave themimit.com to visit third party sites connected via external links, they should carefully read the privacy policies of each site to understand how their personally identifiable data will be collected and used. Destination links are provided only for your convenience; access them at your own risk.


PUBLIC FORUM

At some point in time, MIMIT may provide visitors and patients with live chat events, forums, and message boards. Any information disclosed in areas such as these becomes public information, so use caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. Do not share any data about yourself that you don't want anyone else to read.


OPT-IN NEWSLETTERS

At some time in the future, MIMIT may provide visitors the opportunity to opt-in and subscribe to email communications, mostly in the form of an e-newsletter. All recipients of such a communication provide their contact information at will; in other words, they give their permission to receive such communications.


Further, subscribers have the freedom to opt-out from these communications at any time, by following the instructions at the end of each communication. If there is difficulty dis-engaging from these communications, do one of the following:

  • Send an email to info@mimit.org
  • Send mail to 655 Deerfield Rd, Suite 100, PMB 418 Deerfield, IL 60015
  • Call 708-486-2600

SECURITY MEASURES

MIMIT takes every precaution to protect visitor information. One of these precautions is the use of encryption software for electronic messages that are transmitted from visitors to MIMIT physicians and staff. Data and information is transmitted over a secure channel, then “unencrypted” in a secure database. MIMIT physicians and staff are then alerted that messages are waiting in this secure database, then retrieve them using an encrypted channel as well.


This security measure greatly minimizes the chance that messages will be intercepted by third parties not affiliated with MIMIT. 128 bit encryption is used; the highest available, and the level recommended by Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (the federal department that administers Medicare and Medicaid). In addition, MIMIT maintains strict policies about which staff and other parties may view patient identifiable information. If you wish to request a copy of our internal policy, please contact us.
