Privacy Policy
Cortez Facial Plastic Surgery collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. If you have a Do Not Track signal enabled in your browser we do not track your information.

When visitors leave comments we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you upload images to this website (or anywhere online), you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Anyone with the ability to download those images will be able to extract embedded location data.
