Health Cognizance is committed to protecting the privacy of its users. The personal and medical information gathered by Health Cognizance is to assist you to monitor and manage your medical condition. Health Cognizance will not release your name, address, telephone number, emergency information or health data related to your medical history to any third party without your consent unless, 1) you expressly direct Health Cognizance to give the information to your healthcare providers, or 2) Health Cognizance is required to disclose such information by law.
We make every reasonable effort to ensure that information held by Health Cognizance is confidential and secure. We disclose our information-security practices to you as clearly and fully as possible. These practices are reviewed regularly, and many of our business decisions, including Web design, technology selections, and third-party business relationships, begin and end with considerations for your privacy.
While our philosophy will not change, the details of this policy will change over time as we add additional services and form relationships with new business partners. Please refer back to this page periodically. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post the notice we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices
At Health Cognizance, we exercise state-of-the-art care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Personal information collected by our web site is stored in secure operation environments that are not available to the public. Only employees authorised to access your data are able to do so based on a series of permission levels protected by passwords and software algorithms. All employees sign a confidentiality of data agreement at time of employment in which they agree to uphold the confidentiality of any such information. Only those employees who need access to your information in order to do their jobs are allowed access, each having signed confidentiality agreements. Any employee who violates our privacy or security policies is subject to disciplinary action, including possible termination and civil and/or criminal prosecution.
No one other than yourself and your trusted providers is permitted to make changes or updates to your Personal Health Record, unless a third party uses your User ID and Password. It is your responsibility to protect your User ID and Password, and thus your Personal Health Record, from unauthorised use.
Health Cognizance does not sell, trade or rent personal information about its users. The email addresses you provide are used to respond to comments submitted through our message boards, and users that contact our site via email will not be subject to any communication from us other than as a response to the question/suggestion, unless specifically requested by the user.

Despite Health Cognizance’s efforts to protect your personal health information, there is always some risk that an unauthorised third party may find a way around our security systems or that transmissions of your information over the Internet may be intercepted. As a result, you use Health Cognizance content, products, and services at your own risk. Health Cognizance or its promoters will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorised acts of third parties.
