The following outline is intended to familiarize you with our policies for the gathering, use, maintenance and protection of private information. The examples given are intended to be for illustrative purposes only, and therefore, should not be considered a complete representation of our practices. Please review this Statement carefully. WSL reserves the right to change the Website Privacy Statement at any time, in which event the Site will contain a notice of the change.

Collection and Use of Your Information
WSL may compile statistical information concerning the usage of the Site by using web site “cookies.” This information allows WSL to monitor the Site’s utilization and continuously improve its quality. In order to compile this information, WSL may collect and store information you actively provide on the Site, as well as your IP address, your operating system version, your browser version, the pages you visit within the Site, the length of time you spend on pages within the Site, the site from which you linked to ours, search terms you used in search engines which resulted in you linking to the Site, etc. While all of this information can be associated with the IP address your computer had while you visited the Site, it will not be associated with you as an individual, or associated with any other information you may submit through the Site, or that WSL may store about you for any other purposes.
Disclosure of Information
WSL generally does not require collected information to obtain access to any area of the Site. However, if you decide to provide personal information to WSL, in no case will WSL sell, license or transmit that information to third parties, except as required or permitted by law, such as in the case that WSL sells its business such as through a stock or asset sale to a third party. In the course of our normal business activities, we may disclose collected information to both affiliates and non-affiliated entities, as we deem necessary. We will not disclose your information for any purposes other than those in conjunction with the business activities requested of us unless otherwise permitted or required by law. The business activities include the provision of assisted living, residential care and adult day-out services and performing other essential functions of our business. We may also use or share your information to protect the rights or property of WSL, our business partners, clients, or others when we have reasonable grounds to believe that such rights or property have been or could be affected. In addition, we reserve the right to disclose your personal identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or the rights of others or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our website. Affiliated entities are within the Wentworth Senior Living family of companies, while non-affiliated entities are those outside of the Wentworth Senior Living family of companies with which we conduct our activities. We endeavor to choose non-affiliates with similar standards to ours regarding the protection of private information.
Safeguarding of Information
Our employees are trained to understand the importance of confidentiality and are required to adhere to our privacy policies and procedures. Employees who violate these policies and procedures are subject to disciplinary action. We employ numerous practices to protect against the disclosure of information for purposes unrelated to the performance of our business functions or to individuals other than those who must use it in the course of their work activities. These practices include the use of password protection of computer files, e-mail and voice-mail, video surveillance, and other physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards. Note, however, that no set of privacy and security safeguards is perfect and impenetrable. We recommend that you remain vigilant and take steps to protect your identity and personal information.
As a courtesy to you, this site may offer links to other websites. WSL is not responsible for the privacy practices, information collection practices, or the content of those other websites or any damages resulting therefrom. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy policies of each website that collects personal identifiable information. This Website Privacy Statement applies solely to information collected by this Site.
