We will not sell this information to anyone. We may share this information with third-party business partners who perform services on our behalf, but any third-party business partner that receives this information from us is bound by law and contract to use the information only for our purposes, and to protect the information just as we are committed to protecting the information.
We may use the information you submit to create aggregated, anonymous data, which we will use to tailor our site to your interests, develop new features and monitor the usage of our site. We may also perform statistical analysis of this aggregate data and disclose the results as permitted by law. In addition, we may use your personal information for our business purposes, such as quality improvement, data analysis, audits, service improvement, usage and trend identification, and direct outreach.

Protected Health Information
From time to time, we may need to collect personal and medical information about your patients, usually in connection with a professional liability incident, claim, or suit. This information may be protected by the Privacy and Security provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) and/or state-specific consumer protection statutes. We use physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect the PHI of your patients. We restrict access to this information to only those persons who need it to perform their jobs. We do not use or disclose the PHI of any patients unless it’s required or permitted under federal and state laws that apply to us or our website. We will not sell this information to anyone.

Links to Third-Party Web Sites
We’ve taken steps to ensure your security, the security of your patients and practices, and the security of all visitors to our site against unauthorized access and use. All online forms that include information captured from our users are secured using a Secured Socket Layer (SSL), which encrypts the information as it travels from a desktop to our server. We also obtain certification from industry-recognized security vendors to ensure our systems meet security standards. As an additional security measure, we use a firewall to prevent unauthorized access to our site. Site personnel monitor activity logs at regular intervals to look for unauthorized intrusions.
For your protection, please do not send unsecured e-mail to us that contains your personal information or the PHI of your patients. We cannot guarantee the security of these emails before they reach us, in contrast to the security precautions in place when you send us personal information through an online form on this website. We encourage you to utilize our Member Services portal to send secure messages and receive secure messages from us.
