The only information OzgurMD obtains about individual visitors to its Site is the information supplied voluntarily by its visitors.

Personally identifiable information provided by visitors (name, e-mail or home address, etc.) will not be disclosed to anyone unless visitors indicate that OzgurMD may do so.

IP Addresses

An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet.

If a visitor requests pages from OzgurMD, the OzgurMD servers enter the visitor’s IP address into a log. To maintain visitor anonymity, OzgurMD does not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information.
