HealthView Privacy Policy

HEALTHVIEW™ is committed to protecting your privacy and to making sure that you understand how your information is used. HEALTHVIEW™ believes that only informed members and other website users can make informed decisions about their privacy. Please read this privacy policy carefully. It explains how we collect and share your personal information, and gives you options to limit how we share your information and communicate with you.

What it Does

This Privacy Policy describes, among other things, the types of information we collect about you when you join HEALTHVIEW™, visit our website, or participate in HEALTHVIEW™ events and offerings. This policy also explains how your personal information, including your name, email address and other contact information, may be shared; how you can prevent the sharing of your personal information; and how your personal information is protected from unauthorized use.

Why We Collect

We collect information from you in order to:
• Deliver the information, programs, products or services you have requested from us
• Provide you with customer support
• Communicate with you by email, postal mail, telephone, and/or mobile devices about information, programs, products or services that may be of interest to you either from us or affiliates or providers
• Evaluate the effectiveness of HEALTHVIEW™ benefits and offerings
• Display advertising tailored to your interests or background
• Perform data and statistical analysis
• Enforce our terms and conditions, and perform any other functions otherwise described to you at the time you provide your information

What We Collect

When you sign up with HEALTHVIEW™ , we collect basic information such as your name, contact information, zip code, preferences and date of birth. We collect information about your participation in HEALTHVIEW™ activities.. In the following sections, we explain in more detail the types of information we collect online.

When you visit our website we collect Personally Identifiable Financial Information (“PIFI”), defined as any information provided in order to obtain a financial product or service or information about the consumer resulting from any transaction between us and that consumer. We also collect information we receive from you during online registration and when you complete other forms.The confidentiality of PIFI is protected by Federal and state consumer privacy laws and regulations. We protect the confidentiality of PIFI and do not share it without your prior consent.

In general, PIFI includes all information of a personal nature supplied on account applications, questionnaires and other information provided in order to obtain accounts, obtain credit, enter into advisory or other relationships, etc. It includes a person’s first and last name (or first initial and last name) and one of the following: social security number, driver’s license number or state issued identification card number, or a financial account number, credit card number, or debit card number, with or without any required security code, access code, personal identification number or password that would permit access to a resident’s financial account. PIFI does not include information that we have taken steps to verify and reasonably believes could lawfully be obtained from federal, state or local government records, widely distributed media (telephone book, television or radio program) or disclosures to the general public required to be made by federal state or local law. PIFI that can be lawfully obtained from a website available to the general public is not protected, even though the website operator requires a fee or password.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA) establishes national standards for privacy and security of employee health data, governing the use and protection of “Protected Health Information” (“PHI”). Privacy rules issued by the US Department of Labor are designed to protect PHI, including name, dates, zip code, telephone numbers , social security numbers, medical record numbers, health plan numbers, license numbers, photographs and information shared with other providers.

FIRM NAME AS A POLICY DOES NOT DISCLOSE ANY CONSUMER OR CUSTOMER NON-PUBLIC INFORMATION TO NON-RELATED THIRD PARTIES OTHER THAN IN CONTROLLED CIRCUMSTANCES AS SPECIFICALLY ALLOWED BY REGULATION S-P.

How We Keep Your Information Secure

HEALTHVIEW™ uses commercially reasonable physical, procedural and technological security measures to help prevent unauthorized access to and improper use of the information we collect about you. For example, only authorized employees and authorized third parties are permitted to access personally identifiable information, and they may do so only for lawful purposes. When we share aggregate data with third parties we prohibit them from reengineering nonpersonal data to permit identification of individual users. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your nonpublic personal information. However, no website or Internet network can be completely secure. Although we take steps to secure your information, we do not guarantee, and you should not expect, that your personal information, searches or other communications will always remain secure. Please refer to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s website for information on how to protect yourself from identity theft.
