MEDIKEEPER PRIVACY STATEMENT
Last Updated: March 2014
THIS PORTAL IS PROVIDED TO YOU BY MEDIKEEPER INC., WHO ARE MANAGING AND OPERATING THIS PORTAL.
At MediKeeper, we respect and protect the privacy of the users of the portals we supply and manage on behalf of our customers. This Privacy Statement provides details of our approach to privacy and how we collect, use and protect your personal information.
This privacy statement applies to the data collected by MediKeeper, or those working on our behalf, through information you enter or from the imported data from authorized and approved sources. It does not apply to data collected through other non- MediKeeper approved sites, products, or services.
2. Collection of your personal information
The Service asks you to enter an identifier/user name and password to sign in. The first time you sign in to the Service, the Service asks you to create an account. To create an account, you may have to provide personal information such as name, date of birth, e-mail address, and in some case the last four digits of your Social Security Number (SSN). These are required purely to confirm your eligibility to have access to the portal by comparing them against an information file provided to us. .
We will use the e-mail address you provide when you create your account to allow you to receive notifications that messages or new information has been made available to you in the portal or to advise you of some new functionality or feature that is now accessible through the portal .
By default, you are the custodian of any records you create or information you enter into the portal. Through the “Sharing and Permissions”, you may invite additional people to have access to your information. You may wish to have family members, caregivers and your doctor access to your personal health information. You can choose if they have full access (with the ability to view and modify the information) or if they only have the ability to view the information. You will also be able to dictate which sections of the portal you wish them to access and for how long they are able to access it. You will receive notifications when one of these approved persons view your data. Some of the information stored in the portal may be highly sensitive, so you need to consider carefully with whom you choose to share the information and who you grant access to your personal health information.
Transmissions over the Internet are never 100% secure or error-free. However, we take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Click here to view our Security Policy.
4. Sharing your personal health information
A key function of the portal is the ability to share your health information with people and services who can help you meet your health-related goals. For example, you can share your health information:
- to allow a family member or loved one co-manage your health information
- to consult with your health care provider or another medical professional
- to provide information to coaches and trainers
- to provide information to a health advocate or health advisor
Through the “Sharing and Permissions”, you can choose to share information in the portal with another person by sending a sharing invitation e-mail generated by the MediKeeper platform. If the person you invited to share your information accepts your sharing invitation, you have given him or her access to that information. You can specify how long they have access and whether they can modify the information in the portal.
You can also choose to grant full access to other persons, such as your spouse, for any portion of your health information contained within the portal. Full access is the broadest level of access, so you should think carefully before you grant full access to your health information. Every person you grant fill access to has the same capabilities as you as the user and account holder has, including accessing, modifying, deleting, and sharing all the information in the record. A person who has full access to your account can also revoke access to your account for any other person you may have granted access to the portal, including you. For this reason, you should consider very carefully to whom you grant full access to your account.
