Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Users. Clear gifs are not tied to Users’ personally identifiable information. We also use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by the recipients.
Communications From Praos Health
We send all new Users a welcome email to provide their username details. Users will occasionally receive emails containing information about us, updates on new features, usage tips, and satisfaction surveys.
On occasion it is necessary to send out a service related announcement.
Though we make every effort to preserve User privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order, or legal process served on our Praos Platform. In cases where Praos Health believes that disclosure of any information about a User (including account information) is necessary, we reserve the right to disclose all information in our possession about such User.
Third Party Intermediaries
We use an outside payment processing company to bill Organizations, pay Professionals, verify Professional’s credentials. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
In the event Praos Health goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, Users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. Users will be notified prior to a change of ownership or control of their personal information. If as a result of the business transition, the Users’ personally identifiable information will be used in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection they will be given a choice not to have their information used in this different manner, as described in the notification of changes below.
The Praos Platform contain links to other internet sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other internet sites. We encourage our Users to be aware when they leave our website, to read the privacy statements of each and every internet site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by us.
Periodically, Praos Health requests information from Users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the User therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of the Praos Platform. Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys, they may not use Users’’ personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
Praos Health takes every precaution to protect its User’s information. When Users submit sensitive information via the Praos Platform, their information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration form or administrative tool asks Users to enter sensitive information (such as social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also employ security measures to protect user-information off-line. All of our Users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerks or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment.
