Healthstat Notice of Privacy Practices
Privacy of Minors and Children: The Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA") defines a "Child" as anyone under the age of 13. The Business Affiliates strictly adhere to COPPA. We will not register or otherwise collect Personal Information from persons who identify themselves as being under the age of 13 during the registration process.
What Information is Collected: To have access to the Site, users must register. In order to register, users must provide their Membership number, a password, their birth date, and their gender. We require users to provide their age and gender because relevant medical guidelines will differ based upon this information. We collect other information but we do not require users to provide that information in order to use the site. This optional information includes details concerning or relevant health. Once you have registered for our site, we do not exclude you from participating in any activity or service on the grounds that you have not provided us with personal information that is not necessary for your participation in that activity or service.
What We Will and Will Not Do with the Information Provided to us: We use information to help us compile general statistical data, keep in contact with our users, and provide a better interactive experience. We use your information specifically for these purposes:
- To provide easy access every time you reenter the Site without requiring reentry of registration information.
- To assist our users in completing a health risk assessment and make this information available to the healthcare provider if applicable.
- No business affiliate will have access to individual personal health record information entered by the user.
We will not contact you without your permission except as specified above, or in connection with the registration process. We will never release, sell, rent, or otherwise provide any personally identifiable information on any users to any third party, without your express permission to do so. We may share aggregate anonymous data among our Business Affiliates, but we will never provide information in a format that identifies individuals.
Aggregate Data: We respect your privacy by treating all data that we receive from you as confidential. By using the Site, you agree to allow the data that you provide to us to be collected and combined with data we get from other users, on an anonymous basis. We reserve our right to use all of that data to produce non-personal, aggregate statistical information (Aggregate Data). We reserve the right to use, maintain, update and sell Aggregate Data. We use Aggregate Data to, among other things, assess general usage trends and other patterns of use of the Site. We hope that by assessing those trends and patterns, we can update the Site in ways that will make it more useful to users. We agree to protect your privacy by removing all personal identifiers from any data that we collect into these non-personal, aggregate statistics. We will not disclose to third parties any identifying data unless: (1) you expressly tell or permit us to disclose such information or (2) we believe in good faith that we must do so to comply with legal requirements such as a laws, regulations, search warrants, subpoenas or court orders. If you have questions about how we aggregate data or how we use aggregated data, please contact our Privacy Officer. (See link at end of this page.)
