WEBSITE PRIVACY POLICY & SECURITY

IME Directory understands that privacy of information is of great importance to our members and the people that visit our public sites. 

This Website Privacy and Security Policy describes what information IME Directory collects about you on its websites and how that information is used.

Because we want our sites to better serve visitors’ needs, we collect some basic information about visitors’ computers, including:

  • IP address (the computer’s unique signature)
  • Operating system (e.g. Windows Vista)
  • Browser software (e.g. Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox)
  • Internet Service Provider (e.g. AOL)
  • Geographic location (e.g. Boston, Mass.)

We use this information to continuously enhance our sites and to better serve our visitors’ needs.  For example, we use this information to know what browsers people most commonly use, what pages are most often visited, and what functionality is most used.

IME Directory will never use your information for any purpose other than to provide you the service you have requested of IME Directory or as permitted by law. 

Your information will never be sold to any third party, for any purpose.

Privacy & Security on Password Protected Portions of IME Directory site

Some of IME Directory sites are password protected and require users to register and log-in (“Registered Users”).  These sites contain protected health information (PHI) or individually identifiable information about Registered Users and allow Registered Users to perform certain transactions (e.g. initiate a case). Because of this IME Directory must be able to link a Registered User’s activity back to their identity, for example to verify identity in our systems and eligibility for Services.  Therefore, in the password protected portion of our website, IME Directory does collect identifiable information about Registered Users. This includes information about the Registered User’s computer as listed above, and information related to the Registered User, such as pages visited and Services initiated.  PHI collected by IME Directory about our members is available only to authorized users and is protected from unauthorized access by multiple layers of security controls and monitoring. In addition, PHI that is collected and maintained by IME Directory is used and disclosed only as described in the Member Release Form that you sign when you initiate Services with IME Directory.

Security

The confidentiality, integrity and availability of your PHI is important to IME Directory.  To protect against unauthorized access to PHI that is accessible on the password-protected portions of our site, IME Directory has adopted stringent security standards. Information transmitted between your browser and the password-protected sites is protected by 128-bit encryption.  The verification and login processes established for access to the Portal are in place in order to protect the privacy and security of your PHI.

Cookies

We use “cookies” to help you better navigate the Portal.  A “cookie” is a small piece of information sent by IME Directory’ web server to store on your Web browser.  We use this information to tell if you have been given important messages about the functioning of this site.  Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can set your browser to refuse them or to alert you when they are being sent.

Email Address

You may need to provide us with your email address in order to be a Registered User.  We will use your email to send you important updates about the sites as well as notifications when information and documents are added that you need to be aware of, e.g. Member Release Form or Expert Report.  We will also use your email address to send you general information about the services available through IME Directory.  In some instances, but not all, you will be able to opt out of receiving emails. 

IME Directory does not disclose or sell your email address.

Protection of Passwords

As a Registered User, it is your responsibility to (i) control the dissemination and use of activation codes and passwords; (ii) authorize, monitor, and control access to and use of your user ID and password; and (iii) promptly inform IME Directory of any need to deactivate a password. You agree to accurately maintain and update any information about yourself that you have provided to the Company. You also agree to promptly notify the Company of any unauthorized use of your username, password or any other breach of security that you become aware of involving or relating to this Site by emailing the IME Directory at support@IndependentMedicalExaminer.com.  In addition, you agree to exit from your secure account at the end of each session.  IME Directory explicitly disclaims liability for any and all losses and damages arising from your failure to comply with this section.
