We also use this information for site and system security. We do not share server log information with third parties for marketing or other purposes.
MultiCare has security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control. MultiCare employs strict security measures to safeguard online transactions through the use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) with 128-bit encryption. Any connection between your web browser and an https-protected page on our site uses this level of encryption.
