This policy shall be incorporated into the End User Software License Agreement for customers of 254Reviews.com / AdWorx Media.
This policy is intended to clarify our position regarding the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).
Since 254Reviews/AdWorx Media is just a review service, it is not designed to collect and store protected health information. 254Reviews/AdWorx Media is designed to help you gather reviews from your customers, and manage your reputation across various review sites online.
Therefore, if you are a health care provider and one of your customers submits a review, please be aware that your customer could choose to reveal health information about themselves in their review. 254Reviews/AdWorx Media, and its owners, officers, directors, agents, affiliates, and assigns are not liable for the disclosure of such information that your customers submit willingly to our service and to the review sites we publish to.
Furthermore, if you choose to customize 254Reviews/AdWorx Media in a way that allows you to store protected health information, please note that you are doing so at your own risk. 254Reviews/AdWorx Media is not intended to be used for storing protected health information. You agree to fully indemnify and hold 254Reviews/AdWorx Media and its owners, officers, directors, agents, affiliates, and assigns harmless from any liability that arises because you use 254Reviews/AdWorx Media in a way that it was not designed.
Although not designed to store protected health information, it is important to note that 254Reviews/AdWorx Media does use industry standard security and encryption. However, as with any service, nothing can be guaranteed to be safe online.
We reserve the right to modify this HIPAA Policy from time to time.
