You make the choice of making your data available to consulting doctors. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information. For example we use multiple layers of firewall security and different degree of encryption for your sensitive personal data. We are not guided by HIPAA compliance right now, but have plans to enforce it within our policy as our service expands.
Our employees and consulting physicians may share medical information with each other for treatment, payment and operational purposes, only in order to provide efficient healthcare services. We encourage users not to share non-medical identifiable information other than their email and at times a made-up username for public forums.
Your personal data may in some situations be seen by third parties, such as doctors or operations and maintenance contractors repairing and maintaining our technical systems. The respective contracts require businesses to protect the medical information we share with them. DoctorSpring will use the information received to provide our services in the best interest of the company.
In support of Health initiatives, we may use and share your medical information for research. We will only use and share information for research after obtaining your consent or if the used data does not expressly identify you in any way.
We will share your medical information when required to comply with court order or other legal process. We may use and share your medical information to protect the rights, property or safety of DoctorSpring or another party, or to respond to claims that any posting or other content violates the rights of third-parties.
