Privacy Policy

PRIVACY POLICY

  • Medical Care Corporation ("Medical Care") is committed to providing top-quality services and honoring the privacy of any personal health information you choose to disclose into our website, MCCare.com (the "Site"). The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to describe what information we may collect about you, how we may use that information and what precautions we take against unauthorized access or use of your information.

    General Policies:
    We have implemented technology and security policies, rules and other measures to protect the personal data provided by you that we have under our control from unauthorized access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction and accidental loss. We also protect your information by requiring that all our employees and others who have access to or are associated with the processing of your data respect your confidentiality. We gather information about you that is automatically collected by our Web server, such as your IP address, domain name and locale.

    Security Measures:
    We ensure the security of your data with physical security measures, system/network security measures, and application security measures. Some of these procedures are described below.

    Our servers are kept in a secured data center operated by a professional company. We currently use a data center that provides protection against data loss even in the event of natural disasters such as power failure, fire, flood and earthquake. While we cannot guarantee that such a data center will always be used or available, or that such a system is loss-proof, we will continue to provide reasonable protection to all stored personal data. Only authorized personnel can access the data centers used by us. Our databases are backed up regularly to help protect the data in case of an uncontrollable catastrophe or other occurrence. The data center that stores our servers has policies and procedures in place designed to safeguard the equipment that our data is stored on. Additionally, physical access to the servers storing our data requires individual authorization and authentication.

    System/Network Security Measures: We regularly upgrade our system software to include the latest security features. Our servers are protected by a firewall system, which is designed to keep unwanted traffic or access out of our computer network. We also employ an anti-virus protection service as well as an intrusion prevention service (IPS) provided by a secured data center operated by a professional company. We also use security methods to determine the identity of each registered user, so that appropriate rights and restrictions can be enforced for that user. Reliable verification of user identity is called "authentication." Our system requires both a username and password to authenticate users. Users are responsible for maintaining their own passwords. If you give your username and password to another person or allow access to it by another person, we cannot protect your privacy.

    Application Security Measures: All communication between our Web server and your browser is encrypted with SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to guard against network eavesdroppers. Your password is internally encrypted in our system to prevent unauthorized access to the system. Validations are built throughout the application to capture the most reliable information.

    Your login password, account access information, name, address, email address, personally identifying information and test results are made available only to you and are not released to anyone else without your consent, except as indicated below. Should you give any other party access to your email or test results, Medical Care and its contract parties and other representatives (collectively, "Third Parties") shall not be in any way liable for that information or for the intent or manner of its use. In addition Medical Care and its Third Parties shall not be liable should your account, test, test results, diagnostic guidelines, treatment information, recommendations or any other information become public due to a natural or technical disaster, or from outside hacking, viruses, or security breaches.

    Data Usage
    To make our systems most effective, it is necessary for us to use, analyze and sometimes disclose and share portions of the information you provide to us. For example, we may share information we obtain from our clients with Third Parties such as our affiliates, subsidiaries, agents, partners, licensees, licensors, doctors, advertisers, operations personnel and maintenance contractors repairing and maintaining our technical systems. In addition, we may hire other Third Parties to provide certain services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, processing transactions or performing statistical analysis. Without your prior consent, we will provide to Third Parties only aggregated information, with no identifiable personal references. Except as provided by applicable law, information used, shared, released or otherwise disclosed will not connect your name, address, contact address (email or otherwise), telephone number or similar information with the test results or shared information.

    Physicians or Other Health Care Providers
    With respect to physicians and other health care providers that disclose personal information (including test data) of patients or others to the Site for purposes of receiving from the Site memory impairment analysis or other information, all such personal information will be held by us on the basis described in this Privacy Policy subject to our ability to disclose personal information and communicate with respect to such personal information with such physician or other health care provider.
