When you access the Website, you may choose to give Tandigm online personal information about you. “Online personal information” is any information or data you provide through this Website that is individually identifiable, such as a name, address, postal address, email address, birth date, phone number, and other personal information, including health information that you voluntarily provide to Tandigm. It also may include other information that we collect about you that is associated with your name or address, such as your email address.

Tandigm may use the online personal information for a number of different reasons, including editorial and feedback purposes, healthcare marketing and promotions, performing a statistical analysis of visitor usage, product development, content improvement, to protect our rights or property, or to customize the content and layout of our site.

Online personal information may or may not be individually identifiable health information that is also protected by the federal HIPAA privacy law (“the HIPAA Privacy Rule”).

Unless otherwise authorized by a visitor or required or permitted by law [e.g., disclosure to healthcare oversight agencies, etc. would be permitted and that isn’t stated herein], Tandigm will not sell, rent, license, or disclose personally identifiable information collected through the Tandigm Website to unaffiliated third parties. Under the HIPAA Privacy Rule, however, Tandigm is permitted to disclose individually identifiable health information to business associates who perform various functions or provide services on their behalf. To perform these functions or to provide services, business associates will receive, create, maintain, use, or disclose individually identifiable health information that has been provided to or made available to the business associate by Tandigm, but only after we require the business associates to agree in writing to contract terms designed to safeguard your information.
Except as set forth above, Tandigm will not release personally identifiable information to any party unless required to do so by government authorities or legal process in accordance with applicable law, to protect our rights or property, or in conjunction with an acquisition of all or part of our company. Laws that permit disclosure of your personally identifiable information as part of healthcare operations might include activities such as Wellness Programs.
