Registration for Access
In order to restrict access to any sections of this Site displaying personal health information, we require each user to register by providing personal information that is only available to that individual or their authorized representatives. This personal information may include an account number or other data element obtained from a physical document which was printed and mailed to that specific individual.
Security of Communications
We recognize that many people are concerned about the privacy and protection of information as it is transmitted over the Internet. You should keep in mind that the possibility exists for unauthorized individuals to intercept any e-mail message you send over the Internet. In some cases, information can be encrypted (scrambled or encoded) to make it very difficult to read if it is intercepted during communication. Certain technology and practices allow web sites to provide an increased level of security for your personal and health-related information when appropriate. We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our web hosting services provider for this Site.
E-Commerce / Online Payment
We accept credit card payments for services performed by our facilities through this Site. Paying for services over the Internet requires you to provide your personal identifying information and credit card information. There are a number of practices that make providing sensitive credit card information more secure and therefore make you feel more comfortable about doing so.
We use the following e-commerce practices to ensure the security of your personal financial information:
- To process your credit card payment, you need to provide certain personal financial information, which may include the card type, account number, expiration date, your card’s billing address, and a credit card verification (CCV) number.
- All credit card information will be transmitted in an encrypted format using industry-standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
- Your credit card information is not maintained on a web server following the completion of your payment transaction.
- If you store card information in your personal profile, that data is stored on a server, which has been certified as compliant with the highest industry standards for security.
- We will keep all payment card information in the strictest confidence and will make every effort to maintain the privacy and security of the information at all times.

From time to time, we may identify opportunities to use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in this Statement. If our information practices change at some time in the future, we will post the updated policy to this web site.
