MPT WEBSITE PRIVACY POLICY

Last modified: May 2020.

Welcome to the Medical Properties Trust, Inc., Website (the “MPT Website,” “Website,” or “Site”). Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (“MPT,” the “Company,” “we,” “us,” “our”) created and maintains the MPT Website to provide information to and communicate better with investors, tenants, and others who may be interested in learning more about MPT and its business. MPT recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of information we may collect from our online visitors. To this end, we are committed to using our best efforts to respect the privacy of our online visitors. It is our intent to balance our legitimate business interests in collecting and using information received from and about you with your reasonable expectations of privacy. The following is the way we handle information learned about you from your visit to the MPT Website. It does not apply to information collected by us offline or through any other means.

Children Under the Age of 16

Our Website is not intended for children under age 16. No one under age 16 may provide any personal information to the Website. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16. If you are under 16, do not use or provide any information on this Website or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, or any screen name or user name you may use. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 16 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information.

Information We Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technologies 

As you navigate through and interact with our Website, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns, including details of your visits to our Website and information about your computer and internet connection, including your IP address, operating system, and browser type. The MPT Website may deposit certain bits of information called “cookies” in a visitor’s computer. Cookies are sent back only to the website that deposited them when a visitor returns to that site. Cookies can tell us how and when pages in a website are visited and by how many people. This technology does not collect personal identifiable information; the information collected is in an aggregate, non-identifiable form. With the information we can learn through this technology, we hope to improve the MPT Website.

Personally Identifiable Information

MPT collects personally identifiable information, such as names, addresses, email addresses and the like only when voluntarily provided by a website visitor. We will notify you as to the uses we intend to make of that information.

Disclosure of Your Information

We may disclose aggregated information about our users and information that does not identify any individual without restriction. We may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide as described in this Privacy Policy:

  • To our subsidiaries and affiliates.
  • To fulfill the purpose for which you provide it.
  • For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.

We may also disclose your personal information to comply with any court order, law, or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request; to enforce or apply our terms of use; and if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of MPT, our customers, or others.

Links to Other Sites

All links to the MPT Website must be approved in writing by MPT. As a resource to our visitors, MPT provides links to other websites. We try to carefully choose websites which we believe are useful and meet our high standards. However, because websites can change so quickly, we can’t guarantee the standards of every website link we provide or be responsible for the content of non-MPT sites.

Children

We do not specifically collect information about children.

Changes

Any changes to this privacy policy will be communicated promptly on this page. The date the privacy policy was last revised is identified at the top of the page. You are responsible for ensuring we have an up-to-date active and deliverable email address for you, and for periodically visiting our Website and this privacy policy to check for any changes.
