1)  Privacy Policy


Clinic.today is designed to help you identify a walk-in or urgent care clinic (a “Clinic”) available in your area, and to schedule a visit with the Clinic.  Clinic.today does not provide health care services and does not collect health related information.


This section describes the information collected by clinic.today, how that information is used, and the conditions under which we may share that information with Clinics and with unrelated third parties.

(a) Your general location:  If you are using a device with the location services enabled, clinic.today will use the location service to establish your location at the time of your search request.  If you are using a device that does not have the location services enabled, then you will be prompted to provide your zip code or other location information as part of your search request.  Clinic.today uses location information to identify Clinics in your general area.

(b)  Name and Phone Number:  If you elect to establish a communication with a Clinic using clinic.today, you will be required to submit your name, email address, and possibly a mobile phone number.  The Clinic will use your name and address to establish a place on its waiting or visit list.  Clinic.today and the Clinic will use your mobile phone number and email address to communicate with you about your Clinic visit.  Communications will generally be made by text or email message. 

(c) Redirect to Clinic’s pre-visit site:  Your search results may include Clinics that manage their pre-visit communications with you directly rather than using the clinic.today service.  If you select such a Clinic from your results, you will be re-directed from the clinic.today site to the Clinic’s site.  Any information you provide after you are re-directed to the Clinic’s site is collected solely by the Clinic, and not clinic.today.  You should read the Clinic’s posted privacy policy to understand what information the Clinic collects, how it uses the information, and whether it shares the information with others.

(d) Communications:  Clinic.today includes a feature that permits text and email communication with a Clinic.  We do not view, use or store the content of these communications, but we will capture the “metadata” generated by your communications, such as the time of the communication, mobile phone number, email address, and identity of the Clinic with which you have communicated. 

(e) User Surveys and Other Input:  We may ask you for your opinion of the clinic.today service or a Clinic via an email, Web form, or other online means.  If you elect to respond to our request, you agree that we may use the information you provide to improve our services and marketing strategies generally, and may share the information you provide about a Clinic with the Clinic.  You should read the Clinic’s posted privacy policy to understand their policies for the use and further disclosure of this information.  If you submit your information via a clinic.today online forum then you agree that clinic.today may publish the information you submit on the clinic.today site.

(f) Other Information:  our Web server will capture your IP address, the time and duration of your visit, and the pages on clinic.today that your visit.  It may also collect information about your browser, device, location and other information of the type collected by web servers generally.  We may also use web analytics tools to capture information about your use of clinic.today, such as mouse clicks and scrolling activity.  Clinic.today does not share this type of information with the Clinic and does not tie this information to any personally identifying information it may have about you.   Clinic.today does not use “cookies,” “web beacons” or other techniques to identify you or your browser to your activity on clinic.today.
