We strive to protect the security of your information provided on SelfCollect.com through technical safeguards such as the use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts personal information you input, and the encryption of passwords. We make every effort to protect all information about your lab results or STD status through the SelfCollect.com site based on the standards and requirements set forth in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). However, no information system can be 100 percent secure, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information. It is also important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
Third Party Disclosures
We employ other companies to perform certain functions on our behalf and who have agreed to keep the information confidential and use the information solely to carry out the services that they are performing for us, including, but not limited to sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), and processing credit card payments. They have access only to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Reporting of Test Results
Some states have regulations that require laboratories to report certain STD's and/or other infectious diseases along with whatever demographic information is available. I understand that the website will protect my privacy and the security of all my personal health information as defined by HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
