HIPPA Policy

HIPAA POLICY:  “HIPAA” stands for the “Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act”, which is a Federal law that among other things attempts to protect the privacy rights of everyone’s health care information. If you believe an individual’s private health care information has inappropriately been shared on our network in a manner which violates this accountability act, contact us immediately to identify where the content in question is posted. To the extent technologically possible we will pull the content in question off the network. At our sole discretion we may further suspend and/or terminate the account responsible for the content being posted, and notify the relevant authorities. If you are a healthcare professional in receipt of private health care information of others, you know better than to post that information publicly in discussion forums such as these. We will notify any relevant licensing boards and terminate your account if you demonstrate otherwise.
