How Do We Protect Your Information?
Maintaining the privacy and security of Your Information is important to us. FHIRBlocks has implemented appropriate safeguards to prevent unlawful use or disclosure of information. These include administrative, physical, and technical security safeguards that reasonably and appropriately protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information we receive, maintain, or transmit. Nevertheless, while security of information is of tremendous importance to us, no data transmission (over the internet or any wireless network) or method of electronic storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. In the event of a security breach, we will notify affected individuals, regulatory authorities, and others consistent with requirements under federal and state law or contractual obligations.
Updating Your Information
You may modify Your Information that you have submitted by logging into your account and updating your profile information. You may discontinue use of the Services and FHIRBlocks’ use of Your Information by contacting email@example.com. In the event you withdraw your consent for use of Your Information, FHIRBlocks will permanently delete all of your health data from our data stores. However, your Personal Information may persist in Backup Files for up to a year and in our Audit Files for longer periods of time consistent with federal and state laws as well as private organization guidelines that pertain to analogous categories of data and information.
Please note that copies of information that you have updated, modified or deleted may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the site or application for a period of time. You may also contact us directly if you would like to review, correct, amend, delete or otherwise limit our use of Your Information that has been previously provided to us by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Although we will use reasonable efforts to do so, it may not be technologically possible to remove from our systems every record of Your Information. The need to back up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means a copy of Your Information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate or remove.
If you have used our Services to share information with another user or a third party, we will not be able to access, update, or delete that shared information. You will need to contact that other user or third party directly. Further, if another user of our website or services submits information that identifies you, you will not be able to access, update, or delete that information.
Certain users - such as health care providers - may be required under applicable laws or regulations to retain information about you for extended periods of time, even indefinitely. Additionally, we may have independent obligations under applicable laws or regulations to retain such information indefinitely. We also retain copies of data stored by our website for indefinite periods of time for disaster recovery and business continuity purposes.
