Privacy Policy

Dr. Leon Ensalada and Evidence-Based Pain and Spine Medicine (“the Practice”) are committed to respecting and protecting your privacy by adhering to four foundational principles: Notice, Choice, Access, Security and Enforcement. By using this web site, you consent to the collection and use of certain information by the Practice, as set forth here. This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of Personal Information (defined below) that we collect when you are on our web site. It only governs your use of this web site. It does not govern the practices of companies the Practice does not own or control, or of people the Practice does not employ or manage.

Children’s Privacy Protection

The Practice’s web site does not target and is not intended for children under the age of 13. The Practice abides by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) requirements and does not knowingly collect personal information from children under age 13.


The Practice provides this page to keep you informed of our Privacy Policy practices and of the choices you may make about the way your personal information is collected and used. A link to this policy is provided at the bottom of every page of this web site.

How We Collect Personal Information

The Practice collects information from its web site that could be used to identify you (“Personal Information”) only when you contact us. Such specific information is only collected via online forms and direct communications. Any other information we collect, including but not limited to the visitor’s web-browser version and operating system, does not include details that identify you and is only used for statistical analysis.

Note also that, especially on any of this site’s pages that may serve advertising or other content not generated by the Practice, third parties may place and read cookies on visitors’ web browsers, or use web beacons to collect information as a result of any ad serving on the web site.

Disclosure of Personal Information

Except as set out in this section, the Practice will not disclose your Personal Information to other companies or to its strategic partners without your explicit informed consent. The Practice cannot guarantee the compliance of third parties, if any, with such restrictions. The Practice will otherwise only release your Personal Information to third parties in the following limited circumstances: (i) if legally required to do so under a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; (ii) if the rights or property of the Practice, its affiliates, their service providers or the users of the web site are at risk; and (iii) if the personal safety of users of the web site or other members of the public are reasonably believed to be at risk. The Practice may also use your Personal Information to generate information about you that does not allow you to be identified or contacted (“Aggregated Information”). Aggregated Information shows user activity as a whole rather than on an individual basis. For example, the Practice might inform third parties about the number of users of the web site and the activities conducted by users while on the web site, but without personally identifying information. As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy the assets of similar organizations. In such transactions, user information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that the Practice or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of those transferred assets.

Protection of Personal Information

The Practice recognizes that your privacy is important to you and therefore we may employ security measures that endeavor to protect information from outside threats. However, the Practice and its service providers do not represent, warrant or guarantee that Personal Information will be protected against loss, misuse or alterations, or unauthorized access by third-parties and do not accept any liability for Personal Information submitted to them, nor for your or third parties’ use or misuse of Personal Information. With respect to any employees of the Practice, access to your Personal Information is restricted to employees who require access in order to perform their employment duties. Furthermore, all Practice employees are required to abide by this Privacy Policy and are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal, for breach of its provisions.

Revisions to this Policy

The Practice reserves the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions of this Policy at any time. If we change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you may become aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we disclose it. You should visit this page from time to time to review the then-current policy because it is binding on you. This Privacy Policy was last updated on September 11, 2016.

Contacting the Practice

You can contact the Practice to request that we update your Personal Information. If you believe the Practice has failed to adhere to this Privacy Policy, please contact us with the details.
