Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting the MDwise, Inc. (MDwise) website. Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, this Web Privacy Policy (Policy) explains how we collect and use your personal information.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

MDwise understands that security and privacy are important issues for visitors to our website and recognizes our obligation to keep the information secure and confidential.

Our website provides you with the opportunity to voluntarily submit forms to request additional information about MDwise. In the course of these transactions, you may provide us with personal demographic information or possibly detailed medical information. We use the information you provide solely to help us respond to your request. We will not collect personally identifiable information from you, other than what you supply to us on a voluntary basis.
 
As part of researching or fulfilling your request, your information may be shared with other MDwise employees. All employees of MDwise sign confidentiality agreements to ensure that any private information encountered through the course of their work is treated with the utmost respect.

At no time will MDwise sell, rent, loan, trade or lease any information collected on our site. However, please note that we may need to use this information within the MDwise family of affiliate companies or with a third party vendor to perform administrative, technical or other functions that help us provide service to you. We seek to hold third party vendors to the same privacy practices as MDwise. Except as noted above, MDwise will not release individualized information to another party unless required to do so by government authorities, legal processes, or otherwise required by law.

Personally-identifiable information collected through the website is not stored on the website, but will go to back office systems in the same manner that information from paper forms is currently handled. To help us provide better service to you, we collect general statistical information on the content viewed.

You have the right and ability to exit the MDwise website at any time and not remain in active session. If you choose to remain in session on our site, you implicitly consent to our privacy and security policies.

Acceptance of Privacy Policy Terms and Conditions

This Policy supplements our general Terms of Use Agreement, which we urge you to read. By using MDwise.org (the "website" or "site"), you agree to be bound by the terms of this Policy and by the Terms of Use Agreement. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, please do not use the site.  In an effort to make our site more accessible to end users, MDwise may add expanded features and functions. As additional features and functions are added, this Policy will be updated to correctly represent how information and features are being used. Please check this Policy periodically since it may change at any time.  Your continued use of this site following the posting of any changes to these terms means you accepted those changes.

Links to Third Party Websites

This website may contain links to other sites operated by our business affiliates or nonaffiliated third parties. Once you leave our website, you may or may not see a new web address in the location bar of your web browser. Please review the linked site's privacy policies, and if you do not agree to be bound by the terms of the policies governing that site, we recommend that you terminate your visit to that site. We are not responsible for the privacy or other policies and practices of third party websites.

Collection and Use of Other Information: Cookies

A cookie is a small file that a website transfers to your computer to allow it to remember specific information about your session while you are connected. Your computer will only share the information in the cookie with the website that provided it, and no other website can request it. There are two types of cookies, session and persistent. Session cookies last only as long as your Web browser is open. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for longer periods of time.

MDwise websites may use session cookies for technical purposes such as to enable better navigation through the site, or to allow you to customize your preferences for interacting with the site. 

The information is not collected for commercial purposes and MDwise does not sell or otherwise distribute the information collected from the website for commercial purposes.  MDwise may also utilize persistent cookies to remember you between visits so, for example, you don’t need to enter your username each time you visit the site. If you choose, you may block or delete our cookies from your hard drive; however, blocking or deleting cookies will require reentry of information.

E-mail

Please note that individualized information transmitted via e-mail correspondence between you and MDwise—as opposed to transmission over MDwise Inc.’s website—is not encrypted. As a result, such e-mail correspondence may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users without your knowledge and permission while in transit. For that reason, to protect your privacy, if you have concerns about your treatment, or questions that would involve the communication of confidential information, please call your primary care physician or a customer service representative at:

MDwise Customer Service

Electronic copies of e-mail are retained in the system once the issue has been resolved. However, hard copies of the information may be retained in MDwise, Inc files. Information from e-mails may be transcribed into other MDwise systems or databases.

Security

Any unauthorized use of this website may result in criminal and/or civil prosecution. We have policies and procedures in place to protect the privacy and confidentiality of your information that we collect and maintain. All personal information is stored on our secured servers behind a firewall, and access to data is strictly controlled.
MDwise uses physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect any personally identifiable data stored on its computers. Only authorized employees have access to the information you provide to MDwise.

Privacy of Children

MDwise Inc. encourages parents and guardians to be aware of and participate in their children's online activities. We strictly adhere to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act and will not knowingly register or otherwise collect personally identifiable information from any child under the age of 13 without the prior verifiable consent of that person’s parent or guardian.
