Privacy Policy

Hillside is committed to protecting the privacy of personal information provided to us. The following privacy policy describes how we handle information provided to us by our online visitors. The only information that Hillside collects through this web site is that which you voluntarily provide, such as your name, email address, etc. We also collect information in the aggregate, including, but not limited to, how many people have visited our site, which sections of the site were visited, and what search terms were used. This information does not, however, identify any individual or track an individual’s use of the Internet. Hillside uses the information to enhance your user experience and respond efficiently to your requests. Hillside does not rent, sell, trade, or exchange any information that you provide. We do not share any information unless we obtain your permission first. An exception to this policy is in the event that we need to respond to a legal process, court order, warrant, or to comply with a law or regulation. As a resource to our online visitors, Hillside occasionally provides links to other web sites. While we try to provide links to web sites that contain high quality information, we cannot guarantee the existence of or be responsible for the quality of the content contained on those sites. Hillside also has a privacy policy related to how medical information about you and/or your family may be used and disclosed by Hillside and its affiliates, and how you and/or your legal representative can get information about the services rendered to you and your family.

Users do not need to provide personal information to make general use of Hillside’s Website. Access to certain information may require users to provide certain personal information (such as name, e-mail address and/or other contact information). Such information may be used to monitor use of the website and may be used to assist in development and improvements to the design and layout of the Website. We may also use the contact information supplied by visitors to send information which may be of interest. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings in accordance with the opt-out provisions.

Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration

Any claim or complaint you may have against Hillside or its members, employees, agents, or affiliates arising for your use of this Website shall first be resolved through informal, good-faith discussion between you and Hillside. If such discussion does not resolve the dispute within 30 days of Hillside receiving notice of same, then the dispute shall be submitted to non-binding mediation. If still not resolved after taking these steps, then any claim arising for your use of this Website shall be subject to mandatory and binding arbitration. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Policy. (The AAA Rules are available at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.

The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the Agreement is void, voidable or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award the prevailing party its attorneys’ fees and costs. YOU AND HILLSIDE ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP ANY RIGHTS TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN A COURT OR BEFORE A JURY, OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM ARISING FROM USE OF HILLSIDE’S WEBSITE. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE IF YOU WENT TO COURT MAY ALSO BE UNAVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PRE-EXISTING, PRESENT OR FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, CONSUMER PROTECTION, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, INJUNCTIVE AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS) BETWEEN YOU AND US ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THIS WEBSITE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION.


If Hillside decides to materially change its privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy policy and other places we deem appropriate prior to the change becoming effective so that users are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we may disclose it.
