A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. Cookies are used on this site. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. We use session ID cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site.

As users navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without the user actively providing the information), using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet tags, and navigational data collection. RCM Centric uses Internet Protocol (IP) addresses on this site. An IP address is a number assigned to a computer by the Internet service provider so that it may access the Internet. It is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information because, in most cases, an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). RCM Centric uses an IP address to diagnose problems with its server, report aggregate information and determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site in order to administer and improve the website functionality.
RCM Centric logs IP addresses, or the location of your computer on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. Log data is used in the aggregate to analyze usage of the website and may be used to contact you for purposes of promoting RCM Centric products or services. Your data will not be sold to, shared with, or otherwise made available to any third parties. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site, will be limited.
