Health and Medical Information
Certain health and medical information about you is protected under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) and applicable state law. This information may be provided by you online or offline, or may be collected by us from other methods such as through a health care provider. We protect covered health and medical information as required by HIPAA and applicable state law. Similarly, we may use covered health and medical information as permitted by HIPAA and applicable state law.
In the event of any conflict between our HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices and this Website Privacy Statement, the terms of our HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices shall control.
No transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. We will, however, use a number of physical security methods (such as locks and alarm systems); electronic security methods (passwords and encryption methods); and procedural methods (rules regarding the handling and use of information) to protect the security and integrity of information submitted through this Web site.
Information Collection and Storage
Personally Identifiable Information:
We do not collect information that personally identifies you unless you choose to provide it to us (for example, Web pages that allow you to send an e-mail message or subscribe to our organization’s newsletter or enter your email for waiting list for future eBook presales). The personal information you submit is shared only with those people in our organization who need this information to respond to your question or request, and as otherwise permitted by law to allow us to operate our business or to comply with applicable laws.
As used in this Privacy Statement, personal information does not include information protected under HIPAA or applicable state laws, which is protected as described in the section “Health and Medical Information” above.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information:
We collect information that does not personally identify you for various purposes (for example, website usage, traffic patterns, site performance and related statistics based on our tracking record of your visits to our website).
We collect some of this information using persistent “cookies” to recognize a repeat visitor; this helps us collect general information about how our site is viewed. We may also collect and log the IP address of each visitor to gather aggregate data on visitors to our site. Keep in mind that neither cookies nor IP addresses are used to collect any personal information from you.
Most email servers do not provide a completely secure and confidential means of communication. Other individuals could inappropriately view information sent through a non-encrypted email.
If you wish to exchange any protected health information with your provider then it is highly recommended that you only do it through the HIPAA compliant and secure patient portal link on the website.
