Website Usage / Information Collection

When you visit the Pregnant@Work website, we automatically obtain information from you about the name of your Internet service provider, the browser and type of computer you are using, the website that referred you to us, your IP address, the pages and documents you request and the date and time of those requests. We use this information on an aggregate basis to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of the site to our visitors. For example, we use this information to track which pages are most popular among visitors. We do not track the pages you or any individual visitor may look at during a visit to our site and we do not collect any other information without your knowledge and permission. We never collect your name, mailing address, email address, or phone number.

Transmission of Information by HealthCare Providers

Pregnant@Work does not solicit or collect Individually Identifiable Health Information.

Pregnant@Work provides a Web form to assist prenatal care providers in creating work accommodation notes for their patients. Users of the form provide information about pregnancy-related medical conditions and associated limitations.  The form does not collect personally identifiable information about patients, such as their names, dates of birth, mailing addresses, email addresses, or phone numbers. After a user has completed the Web form, all pregnancy-related and other information the user places into the Web form is deleted from our server, records, and the Pregnant@Work site. We do not retain any of the pregnancy-related or other information provided by prenatal care providers in the Web form. WorkLife Law uses industry accepted data collection and encryption methodologies to promote the secure transmission of information, including SSL (Secure Sockets Layer).
