Lamprey Health Care cannot guarantee any response to a medical emergency or patient information communication if done so through this website.
Our website may contain forms through which individual users may request information, register for events and classes, or supply feedback to us through a survey. In some cases, we require telephone numbers, email addresses, or return addresses so we may supply you with the requested information. When processing credit card payments, correct names and addresses are also required.
We do not provide any information supplied on our web forms to any outside organization for any reason (other than when required by law or State & Federal organizations or as necessary to process credit card information).
To better communicate with our patients and to improve our patient care and services, we may survey visitors to our site. We use the aggregate information we collect to measure the number of visitors to our site's different pages and sections and to help us make our site more helpful to visitors. The aggregate information we collect is not linked to personal information, and we do not report on individual user sessions.
Those who pay their bill online or donate to Lamprey Health Care through our website are directed to a secure portal to give their information. We will not collect your information directly.

Lamprey Health Care provides materials, services, and other information "as is" for informational purposes only.
Because of its nature, a website cannot be protected against intentional intrusion attempts.

Lamprey Health Care cannot and does not guarantee the security of electronic communications or transmissions. Therefore the security, integrity, or confidentiality of information transmitted to or from this website, as a result of all internet use by any organization, runs the risk of interception.
Under no circumstances will Lamprey Health Care be liable for any direct, indirect, special, consequential, or monetary damages, including fees and penalties in conjunction with the individual use of materials on this site or connectivity to or from this site to any other site.
