PRIVACY POLICY & PRACTICES

Your information. Your rights. Our responsibilities:

Optimize U, a Kentucky limited liability company, is collectively referred to herein as “OU”, “we”, or “us”.

This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains which data we collect, how we collect that data, who we collect that data from, what we do with that data, including to whom or to what we share that data, and your consumer rights for how we do all of this.

Your information: The information subject to this policy includes your “personal identifying information,” as well as your “protected health information” that you share with us during the course of your treatment with our clinics. Personal identifying information means information that can be used to identify you as an individual. Protected health information is personal identifying information specifically related to your health.

Your rights: You can ask for a paper copy of this notice at any time, even if you have agreed to receive the notice electronically. We will provide you with a paper copy promptly. You can also choose how we contact you and how we share certain information. You have the right to file a complaint according the process outlined below.

Our responsibilities: We are required by law to maintain the privacy and security of your personal and protected health information. We will let you know promptly if we determine that a breach has occurred that may have compromised the privacy or security of your physically or electronically stored information. We must follow the duties and privacy practices described in this notice and give you a copy of it. We will not use or share your information other than as described here unless you tell us you want us to do so in writing.

We do not sell or share your information with others:

Unless you provide us with permission (for instance, by authorizing the release of your medical records to a third party) we will not release or share your personal identifying information or your protected health information with anyone or any entity, unless the law requires us to do so. 

You can ask to see or get an electronic or paper copy of your medical record and other health information at any reasonable time:

We will provide a copy or a summary of your health information, usually within 30 days of your request. We may charge a reasonable, cost-based fee when appropriate.

You can also ask us not to use or share certain health information. We are not required to agree to your request. We will say “yes” unless a law requires us to share that information. 

You can ask us to correct health information about you that you think is incorrect or incomplete. 

For certain health information, you can tell us your choices about what we share:

Let us know if you have a clear preference for how we share your information. You can tell us how to (i) share information with your family, close friends, or others involved in your care, (ii) share information in a disaster relief situation, (iii) share information through communication instructions that you provide to us (text, email, etc.). If you are not able to tell us your preferences, for example if you are unconscious, we may go ahead and share your information if we believe it is in your best interest. We may also share your information when needed to lessen a serious and imminent threat to health or safety. 

If you have given someone medical power of attorney (not a durable power of attorney or a general power of attorney) or if someone is your legal guardian, that person can exercise your rights and make choices about your health information. We will make sure the person has this authority and can act for you before we take any action. 

You can ask us to contact you in a specific way:

Let us know if you have a clear preference for how we contact you to coordinate your care or to provide you with information about the services we provide, whether it’s via your home, office, or mobile phone, or via a certain email address, or whether you’d like us to contact you via text messages.

As a service to our patients, we provide courtesy appointment reminder calls, emails, and / or texts to your mobile phone. If you use voicemail, we may leave you a voicemail message. The information transmitted may include protected health information. You have the right to opt out of these programs if you do not consent to receiving such communication. Let us know in writing and we will remove you from these programs.

How we use your information:

We only use your information for a few different reasons:

1 – We can share your health information with other medical professionals who are treating you – at your request via a medical records release authorization.

2 –  We can use your information to provide you with customer service from our administrative team and medical care from our medical team. For example, we will use your name and phone number and your service and payment information and history to call you to collect payment if you’re making a purchase for a product or service, or to coordinate other logistics for your medical care. In other words, we can use your information within our office in order to operate our business in order to serve you.

3 – We can use your information such as your name and your phone number or your email address to text and / or email you and / or call you to remind you of your appointments, or to contact you in order to schedule an appointment for you, or to contact you to provide you with information about our products and services that may be of interest to you, or to provide you with a monthly newsletter, or other important updates about our business.

4 – We are sometimes obligated to share your information by state or federal law: (1) preventing disease, (2) helping with product recalls, (3) reporting adverse reactions to medications, (4) reporting suspected abuse, neglect, or domestic violence, or (5) preventing or reducing a serious threat to anyone’s health or safety. In these cases, we would take steps to protect your personal information to the fullest extent possible.

5 – We will sometimes need to share your information for other reasons: (1) We may share your health information to respond to requests from a medical examiner, coroner, or funeral director. We may share your health information in response to a proper request, for instance, we can use or share your health information about you for: (2) Workers’ compensation claims, (3) Law enforcement purposes, (4) Health oversight agencies to perform activities authorized by law, (5) Special government functions such as military, national security, or presidential protective services, (6) Responses to lawsuits or legal actions, or (7) Responses to a subpoena or court or administrative order.

To file a complaint if you have one:

You can complain if you feel that we have violated your privacy rights by calling 270.640.0124 and asking to speak with Joshua H. regarding privacy enforcement.

E-PRIVACY POLICY & PRACTICES

Scope:

This Notice of Electronic Privacy Practices (“E-Privacy Policy”) applies to information collected through any webpages that display or link to this privacy policy page. For more information on how we collect and protect your information, please review our Privacy Policy.

Regarding information shared by you on our website or collected by our website or otherwise online:

Outside of embedded web applications or forms on our website where you personally choose to engage and enter your personal identifying and/or personal health information, YOU CAN ACCESS AND BROWSE OUR WEBSITE AT ANY TIME WITHOUT PROVIDING ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION, as our website does not automatically collect any personal information, including any information that would personally identify you.

Considerable resources have been invested into the security of our website. We force SSL throughout our website – in other words it’s incredibly difficult for you to use our website without encryption and privacy of transmitted information. And we have implemented premium firewall technology throughout our website – in other words it’s incredibly difficult to break into our website and get information from it. As such, our website is much more secure than it needs to be in order to be HIPAA and HITECH compliant. Your personal identifying information and/or personal health information submitted through any embedded web applications or forms on our website is encrypted and more than reasonably safe. Many additional steps and additional resources have been taken and invested into your privacy and the security of your information and our website.

Information our website collects automatically:In order to better understand how people use our website, we utilize two third-party tools called Google Analytics and Bing Analytics web analysis services, provided by Google and Bing respectively. Google Analytics and Bing Analytics only automatically collect information we have given them permission to collect. We have very precisely configured our installation of Google Analytics and Bing Analytics to be compliant with the European Union’s GDPR requirements, which far surpass USA privacy and security requirements, to only collect anonymous information via an anonymous IP permission, and to not use it for remarketing or retargeting purposes. Your interaction with our website is completely anonymous. How you interact with our website will not be used by Google Analytics or Bing Analytics or any other third party to interact or engage with you before or after your interaction with our website. In other words, they should not market to you or individualize your experience of Google or Bing in any way differently due to your interaction with our website.

The only information we have given Google Analytics and Bing Analytics permission to collect is information such as: how often a user visits our website, which pages they visit, how long they spend on those pages, what they interact with on those pages, which websites referred them to our website, browser type, device type, operating system, date/time stamp, their general location only as specific as their zip code, and solely based on an anonymous IP address. This information is only used internally to improve our website. We do not utilize any other third-party tools on our website to collect any information whatsoever, and we do not share any of this anonymous information with any digital marketing agency or other third-party.

When interacting with our services within your social media profile, we may automatically be provided with information stored within your social media that has been authorized by you to be shared by your social media within such social media. This information may include your contact information, email address, friend information, friends and pages with whom you have an association, and other information stored within social media. We don’t have any control over any of this information, as it is yours and you are in control of your own social media permissions. If you do not want this information to be shared and collected, please modify your data permissions within that social media platform.

You have control over your information:

You have a variety of tools at your disposal to manage cookies and similar technologies that collect information related to your use of our website and your social media. You can adjust your preferences in your web browser. For example, you can choose to block or delete cookies, or adjust your tracking preferences. You can choose to browse privately. You can use Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out page to opt-out of receiving third party advertiser cookies.

For cookies and similar technologies used on your mobile phone for applicable targeted advertising activities, follow the steps provided by your mobile device platform provider (Apple, Android or others) to opt out of having your information collected and used.

Acceptance of these terms and conditions:

Each time that you use our website you signify that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by the Terms of Use, which incorporate this E-Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this E-Privacy Policy or to the use of your information as set forth in this privacy statement, please do not use our website. 

Your continued use of our website subsequent to changes in this E-Privacy Policy will signify your acceptance of the changes.

To file a complaint if you have one:

You can complain if you feel that we have violated your privacy rights by calling 370.640.0124 and asking to speak with Joshua H. regarding privacy enforcement.

You can also file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights by sending a letter to 200 Independence Avenue, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20201, calling 1-877-696-6775, or visiting www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints. We will not retaliate against you for filing a complaint.

Changes to this E-Privacy Policy:

We can make changes to this E-Privacy Policy at any time without notice, and the changes will apply to all information we have about you. The new e-privacy policy will be available upon request, in our office, and always here on our website. The date of the last update to our e-privacy policy will always be clearly marked. We recommend that you review this policy periodically.

Reservation of rights:

By using our website you consent, and we reserve the right, to use the data we collect from you as described in this privacy policy. Additionally, you consent, and we reserve the right, to use the data we collect from you in ways that are consistent with the then-current disclosed privacy policy regardless of when your data was collected (i.e., we can use your data in ways that are consistent with the current disclosed practice, but which may not be entirely consistent with the previously disclosed practices when your information was originally collected).

It’s time to revive your life.
