5. Information Collected by Third Parties Not Acting on Behalf of HealthPost

Certain content and Services offered to you through our Website are served on Websites hosted and operated by a company other than HealthPost ("Third Party Contractor Websites"). HealthPost does not disclose your Personal Information to these Third Party Contractor Websites without your consent, but you should be aware that any information you disclose once you access these other Websites is not subject to this Privacy Policy. HealthPost does not endorse and is not responsible for the privacy practices of these Third Party Contractor Websites. You should review the privacy policy posted on the other Website to understand how that Third Party Contractor Website collects and uses your Personally Identifiable Information. HealthPost makes an effort to make it obvious to you when you leave our website and enter a Third Party Contractor Website, either by requiring you to click on a link or by notifying you on the site before you visit the third party site. In addition, if you see a phrase such as "Powered by" or "in association with" followed by the name of a company other than HealthPost, then you are on a Website hosted by a company other than HealthPost.

6. Links to Other Websites

The Website contains links to third party websites to which HealthPost has no affiliation. HealthPost does not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. Some web sites may have the look and feel of our Website. Please be aware that you may be on a different site and that this Privacy Policy only covers our Website. Should you decide to visit one of these third party websites, we suggest that you read its privacy policy.

7. Disclosure of Your Information

We share certain categories of information we collect from you in the ways described in this Privacy Policy. We may share Demographic Data with advertisers and other third parties only on an aggregate (i.e., non-personally-identifiable) basis. We may also share your Contact Data, Demographic Data, Insurance Data and Medical Data with Providers you choose to schedule on our Website.

We also share Personal Information and Traffic Data with our business partners who assist us by performing core services (such as web site hosting, billing, data storage and security) related to our operation of the Website and/or by making certain Interactive Tools available to our users. Those business partners and our third party service provider shall be bound to uphold the same standards of security and confidentiality that we have promised to you in this Privacy Policy, and they will only use your Contact Data and other Personal Information to carry out their specific business obligations to HealthPost and to provide your requested medical care and services.

Last, we may transfer information about you to another company in connection with a merger, sale or acquisition by or of HealthPost. In this event, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy. HealthPost does not share, sell, rent or trade your Personal Information with any third parties for their promotional purposes.

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.

8. Providers

Providers, their employees, and their agents should be particularly aware of their obligations of patient confidentiality, including without limitation their obligations under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act ("HIPAA"), in communicating with HealthPost. HealthPost does not have, and will not accept, any obligations of confidentiality with respect to any communications other than those expressly stated in this Privacy Policy and HealthPost's Terms of Use.

9. How HealthPost Handles Privacy and Security Internally

The security of your Personal Information is very important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. For example, when you enter sensitive information (such as personal health information or credit card information) on our Website, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Although we make good faith efforts to store Personal Information in a secure operating environment that is not open to the public, you should understand that there is no such thing as complete security, and we do not guarantee that there will be no unintended disclosures of your Personal Information. If we become aware that your Personal Information has been disclosed in a manner not in accordance with this Privacy Policy, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you of the nature and extent of the disclosure (to the extent we know that information) as soon as reasonably possible and as permitted by law.

10. Controlling Your Personal Information

As a registered user of the Website, you can modify some of the Personal Information you have included in your profile by logging in with your username and password and accessing the "my account" tab within your profile. Upon your request, HealthPost will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete your account and the Personal Information in your profile; however, it may be impossible to remove your account without some residual information being retained by HealthPost. Registered users who wish to close their account should contact privacy AT HealthPost DOT com with their registered email (username).
