Social Media & Third-Party Websites/Applications

Information Collected and Used from Third-Party Websites

We maintain accounts on third-party websites, such as social media sites (such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.), as tools to better interact with the community. Your activity on those third-party websites is governed by the security and privacy policies of those sites. Users of third-party websites are often sharing information with the general public, user community, and/or the third-party operating the website. These actors may use this information in a variety of ways. You should review the privacy policies of third-party websites before using them and ensure that you understand how your information may be used.

RF uses social media as a tool to promote RF and raise awareness regarding public policy and information. Social media accounts are not to be used to solicit client/patient needs or to schedule appointments. 


If you have an account with a third-party website, and choose to follow, like, friend, or comment, be aware certain PII associated with your account may be made available based on the privacy policies of the third-party website and your privacy settings within that third-party website.
