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.
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.
