The Site contains links to other web sites that are not owned or controlled by us, including a link that enables health care providers to access a third party web site for certain purposes relating to your care.

VI.        Security

Securing your Personal Information is important to us. We take physical, electronic and administrative steps to prevent the unauthorized release of or access to your Personal Information. For example:

  • When a user communicates with us on the Site, the transmissions are encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

 

  • A user’s access to the Site is controlled by a username and a password.

 

  • Our employees are instructed to access and use only Personal Information they need to perform their job duties.

No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is completely secure. Consequently, while we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your Personal Information, We cannot guarantee its absolute security. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. If you are sharing a computer with anyone, you should always log out of our Site before you leave the Site. You must never share your username or password with any other person. It is also important for you to understand that e-mail communication, including the e-mail functionality on the Site, is not a completely secure and confidential means of communication. Please do not communicate with us through the Site, or otherwise use the Site, unless you accept the security implications of dealing online. Information you send through the Site is sent at your own risk.   If you know or suspect that your username or password have been compromised, or if you have any questions about security on our Site, please call us at (844) 633-3674 or email us at sbild@smartchoicemri.com.
