Our Privacy Statement
Amida Care respects the privacy of our website visitors. We take safeguarding your privacy very seriously. We have, therefore, adopted this Privacy Statement in order to familiarize you with the information that may be collected through this website and the ways in which we use the information we collect. Please read this Privacy Statement carefully. By visiting our website, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Privacy Statement.
This Privacy Statement does not apply to information collected through other means such as by telephone or in person, although that information may be protected by other privacy policies or statements. As used in this Privacy Statement, terms such as “we” or “our” refer to Amida Care, Inc., (“Amida Care”) and its current and future affiliated entities.
This website is intended for a New York State audience. If you access this site from outside New York, you acknowledge, agree, and consent that any information you provide, including any personal information, may be transferred to and processed by a computer located within New York, and subject to New York laws and regulations. Further, if you access this site from outside New York, you acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for compliance with any applicable laws, rules or regulations applicable to such use, including the laws of New York State.
What Is Personal Information?
“Personal information” means information that can identify you as an individual, such as your name, telephone number, e-mail address, postal address (or portions thereof), and financial information. It does not include publicly available information that is lawfully made available to the general public from federal, state or local government records or widely distributed media. Further, as used in this Privacy Statement, personal information does not include information covered under HIPAA, which is protected by health care providers and health plans.
What Personal Information Is Collected?
While it is possible to use our website without revealing any personal information, we provide a landing page that allows you to send us messages that may contain personal information. The landing page includes an input form in which you can enter your first and last name, your postal address (including your ZIP code), your telephone and fax numbers, and your e-mail address. The input form asks you to select the reason for your message from a drop-down box and allows you to enter text. Personal information is obtained by Amida Care only when voluntarily submitted through this form by you, the visitor.
We also provide links on our website to our e-mail addresses, which are used to facilitate communication between you and Amida Care. You may voluntarily submit information to us through electronic mail. Unless otherwise noted, providing information through the input form on our website and/or through electronic mail is not a secure and confidential means of communication. Non-encrypted electronic communications may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users without your knowledge and permission while in transit to us.
How Is Personal Information Used?
Amida Care does not sell, rent, or trade consumer mailing lists. We use the information collected through our website to respond to your inquiries, for quality and service improvement purposes, to supply you with information about enrollment, events and news at Amida Care, to request donations, and to seek volunteers to contribute time to Amida Care.
What If You Do Not Want Personal Information To Be Collected?
Personal information will not be collected from you without your knowledge and approval. Providing Amida Care with your personal information is entirely optional. You do not have to provide us with personal information if you do not want to, though not providing information may limit your ability to request and receive information from us.
Amida Care also allows users to opt out of receiving e-mail and/or postal mail from us. To opt out of e-mail and/or postal mail, please send an e-mail to HIPAA@amidacareny.org requesting removal from our e-mail and/or mailing list.
How Is Personal Information Protected?
Amida Care protects personal information by using appropriate safeguards, including standard protocols to protect the website files and databases. We will not use or share personal information with any third party, except when permitted or required by federal and/or state law, and, except as necessary to operate the website, we may provide our website hosting service provider(s) with access to information collected through the site.
Linking To Other Websites
From time to time we will provide links to other websites not owned or controlled by Amida Care. We do this because we think these outside resources might be of interest or use to you. While we do our best to ensure your privacy, we cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of other sites, nor can we be responsible for the content or security on other sites. A link to a non-Amida Care website does not constitute or imply endorsement by Amida Care. Additionally, we cannot guarantee the quality or accuracy of information presented on non-Amida Care websites. We encourage you to review the privacy practices of any website you visit.
Changes To This Privacy Statement
This Privacy Statement is effective as of September 19, 2013. We may find it necessary to update this Privacy Statement from time to time without notice to you. We will post changes to the Privacy Statement on the website, though it is your responsibility to review this Privacy Statement on return visits to the website and to remain informed of any changes. Your continued use and access of the site constitutes agreement to any subsequent updates.
