We have strived to design and manage Our Website to meet current industry standards of privacy and security, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) as amended by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical health Act Section 13402 (HITECH Act) and implementing regulations (collectively referred to as “HIPAA Regulations”). While no website can be 100% secure, We have security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under Our control. Our web server uses encryption technology to ensure private and authenticated communication by encrypting all user-identifying data between two parties (user and Website). In addition, Our Websites have the added benefit of “secure site verification” for Internet users issued by GeoTrust (The Certifying Issuing Authority) that We are indeed a real company.
