What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our website and when do we collect it?
We collect information that users provide through Contact Forms, Quizzes, Live Chat, mailing list opt-ins and through any other forms on the website that give the user of providing us with information.
How do we use your information?
We use your information to respond to any specific inquiries you have submitted and to send you emails if you have opted in to our email list(s). If you have registered for a class (Patient Stories, Current Issues, Book Club), you will be added to our email list(s). We do not sell your information to third parties or share your information with third parties without your explicit consent.
We use MailChimp to send out emails to our subscriber list. MailChimp is compliant with the CAN-SPAM. Users can unsubscribe from a mailing list at any time using the link at the bottom of each email.
How do we protect your information?
Due to the fact that many of our users are patients, all user information is stored within HIPAA-compliant systems. Please refer to our Notice of Privacy Practices. You can ask us to change or delete your personal information by emailing us. You can also ask us to send you a copy of any information we have about you and we will do so within 30 days.
Do we use ‘cookies’?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information except with your explicit consent and, in these cases, only in compliance with HIPAA. Please refer to our Notice of Privacy Practices
If we become aware of a data breach, we will notify you as well as regulators within 72 hours. If there is a breach of patient data, additional steps may also be taken, in compliance with HIPAA.
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
