Privacy Policy

Effective Date: February 18, 2010

At Medical Informatics Engineering (MIE) , protecting your privacy is of the utmost importance. Information furnished by you to us will be treated with the greatest respect and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Please find below details about our practices for handling and securing your personal information. In this policy, "personal information" refers to names, home and office contact information and any other "information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person."

This Privacy Policy applies only to our customers and visitors who use the Site and who reside in the United States. We do not knowingly solicit business from outside the United States or from any jurisdiction within the United States where we are unlicensed, or do not have authorized representatives (either employed or under contract), or where we do not have filed rates or products.

The Site is owned and operated by Medical Informatics Engineering. The site is operated out of MIE's facilities in the United States. This privacy policy applies collectively to MIE's security practices and to all data collected by, used by or exchanged among any of the MIE's legal entities. Most of the affiliates of MIE have their own websites with their own unique privacy policies that discuss each site's data collection, use and security practices. Should you visit one of these sites, we encourage you to review its privacy policy and the applicable privacy practices.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

  1. Anonymous Information and Aggregated Statistics

    You can visit the Site anonymously without providing any personal information and without becoming a registered user. Our web servers may collect user information, including IP address, name of the domain used to access the Site, the referring URL, and user agent, which identifies the type of browser and platform used to access the Site. We also use this data to monitor Site performance and to make the Site easier and more convenient to use.

    Medical Informatics Engineering may compile aggregated statistics about customers, sales, traffic patterns and services. Medical Informatics Engineering may provide these statistics to third parties who will analyze the information and help provide online products and services. Any statistical information shared with third parties will not include personal information.

  2. Personal Information Collection

    Medical Informatics Engineering may ask for personal or business information in order to assist us in meeting your various needs, including:

    • providing products or services requested;
    • servicing your account;
    • improving our services; and
    • developing and/or informing you of additional products or services that may be of interest

    Information sought by Medical Informatics Engineering may depend on the product or service requested. As a result, Medical Informatics Engineering may request personal information including name, street address, ZIP Code, telephone number, fax number, email address, and area of practice or degree (if applicable). Medical Informatics Engineering may collect other personal information through comments, feedback, participation in surveys, or other requests for information.

    Further personal information may be required during the application and underwriting process. That information may include, among other things, claim payments, loss history or other underwriting information, credit card numbers, bank account information or social security numbers. In certain circumstances, we may require information primarily used for individual, family or household purposes.

  3. Message Boards and Chat Areas

    This Site may contain a bulletin board, message board or chat area. Please remember that your communications in these areas are public and may be viewed by others. Please disclose your personal information in such areas with care.

  4. Email Communication and Online Surveys

    Medical Informatics Engineering may send email communications with information that we believe you may find useful, including information about our products and services or offerings from affiliates or third parties. You may "opt-out" of receiving any further emails of this nature by following the instructions contained in the e-mail.

    At times, Medical Informatics Engineering may conduct online surveys to better understand the needs, profiles and experience of our visitors. Our hope is that you will respond to the surveys. However, we leave the choice to you.

  5. Children and Privacy

    This Site is not intended for anyone under 13 years of age. Medical Informatics Engineering does not knowingly solicit information from children, nor do we knowingly market our products or services to children.

  6. Cookies

A cookie is used to help measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views, and other statistics relating to the Site. This cookie by itself does not reveal your email address or identification. Should you provide such information during the online registration, as discussed below, Medical Informatics Engineering will use cookies to recognize you on subsequent visits and to make your online experience more convenient.

Cookies are small pieces of data that a browser stores on its computer's hard drive. Cookies cannot be used to gather data from a hard drive, obtain email addresses or obtain personal information. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to prevent cookies from being sent.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE SHARE AND WITH WHOM DO WE SHARE IT?

Medical Informatics Engineering may share personal information with our affiliated companies and third parties for the purpose of fulfilling your requests, or to offer you other products and services that may be of interest to you. Medical Informatics Engineering may or may not receive compensation for sharing such information in this manner. Medical Informatics Engineering reserves the right to use this information and to disclose it to others to the extent permitted or required by law, to investigate potential wrongdoing, or to protect the rights, property or safety of Medical Informatics Engineering or others.

HOW IS YOUR INFORMATION SECURED AND PROTECTED?

Medical Informatics Engineering uses encryption and authentication tools (password and user identification) to protect your personal information. However, emails sent via the Site may not be secure during transmission. If your communication is very sensitive, or includes highly confidential information such as a credit card number or premium or loss information, you may want to send it by regular mail or verify that encryption is used.

Our employees are aware that certain information provided by our customers is confidential and is to be protected. Employees who misuse customer information are subject to disciplinary action.

WHAT IF WE CHANGE OUR PRIVACY POLICY?

Medical Informatics Engineering reserves the right to modify or supplement this Privacy Policy at any time. If we make any material change, the Site will include such change. Please check this Privacy Policy often to review any changes.
