Privacy Policy

The HIPAA Designated Standards Maintenance Organizations (DSMOs) are firmly committed to safeguarding the privacy of  the  users and customers who utilize the Change Request System web site.

To promote trust and confidence in the DSMO Change Request System (CRS), we are providing this full and complete disclosure of our privacy policy and how we will use any information collected from you.  Except as set forth in this privacy policy, we will not distribute or release any personally identifiable information about our users or customers.

The HIPAA DSMO's collectively are the sole owner and user of the information collected on this website.  We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in any ways other than expressly stated in this Privacy Policy.  The CRS only collects information from users requesting a change to the HIPAA EDI Implementation materials.

The CRS will only disclose personal information without express consent if the DSMOs have  a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to comply with legal requirements and/or comply with legal process.  Such a disclosure shall not constitute a breach of this Privacy Policy.

In order to request a change, a user must complete a contact information form, which requires a user to provide his or her name, address, firm name, e-mail address, telephone number, and facsimile number.  This information will be used to contact the user if necessary concerning the change request.  This information will not be used for any purposes other than for contacting the user via e-mail, postal mail, telephone, or facsimile transmission.

The CRS may use IP (internet protocol) addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement within this website only, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.  IP addresses are not linked to any personally identifiable information.

The CRS will not share any aggregated demographic information or any personal information collected from this website with any other entities or individuals.

The CRS does not utilize "cookies" nor does the CRS write any information to the client's hard disk, however, the CRS does utilize "Session Variables or per-session cookies (not-stored)" which older browsers may interpret as a type of "cookie". Although a session variable is not a cookie (cookies are small bits of information, permanently stored on your hard drive) and is not written to the hard drive, user's will need to enable "session cookies" in the browser settings for the CRS to function properly. 

The CRS recognizes the importance of security, and takes every precaution to protect our users' information.  When users submit any information via the website, that information is protected both online and off-line.
