EyeQuest Vision Privacy & Security Policy
SSL Certificate Authority
The EyeQuest organizations are very sensitive to privacy issues. The EyeQuest Web Sites facilitate the collection of a minimum necessary set of Protected Health Information from contracted providers and external partners. This health care information is used for the sole purposes of administering health care operations. Additionally, our online and offline business practices are in full compliance with the privacy requirements under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
We have taken precautionary measures to make all information received from our online visitors as secure as possible against unauthorized access and use. We do not sell or share any health care information to companies outside EyeQuest. However, it may be necessary for us to provide information to contracted external partners in order to respond to inquiries and to provide services on behalf of our members. These external partners are permitted to use the information provided for the specified health care operation purpose only and may not disclose it further without proper permission as prescribed under the HIPAA regulations. We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected at our site.
