INNER REACH DISCLAIMER AND PRIVACY STATEMENT
This web site is not intended to practice medicine or provide specific medical advice and should not be used to make a diagnosis or to replace or overrule a qualified health care provider’s judgment.
The material on this web site, its entire content, protocols, articles, series of writings, and any and all material is meant for informational purposes only.
This web site does not constitute an attempt to serve as a diagnosis, prescription, treatment, or replacement of the advice of a qualified health care provider. The use of the web site does not establish a doctor-patient relationship. All aspects of care and concerns can be made by consulting with a qualified health care provider.
Inner Reach makes no representations whatsoever about any other web site which you may access through this one. When you access a non-Inner Reach web site, please understand that it is independent from Inner Reach and that Inner Reach has no control over the content of the web site. In addition, a link to a non-Inner Reach web site does not mean that Inner Reach endorses or accepts any responsibility for the content, or the use of such web site. It is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever you select for your use is free of items of a destructive nature.
Inner Reach will strongly react to any use or attempted use of an account without the customer’s authorization. Such attempts include Internet scamming, password robbery, security hole scanning, etc.
While the web site attempts to remain current, health care information changes rapidly and thus the web site should not be relied upon as comprehensive or error-free.
The web site reserves the right to change its disclaimer or other terms and policies, so users should review these periodically.
Users should not rely upon the Inner Reach Corporation or HigsHealth web sites if they might need emergency medical treatment. We strongly encourage users to consult with a qualified health care professional for diagnosis and answers to personal questions.
At Inner Reach, we are committed to protecting the privacy of those who use our services. We use technologies that provide secure online experience.
Collecting Personal Information:
Sometimes we need information that personally identifies you or allows us to contact you. Generally, we ask for this information when you register for the Inner Reach service.
The Inner Reach Health Information Gathering System (HiGS)* contains two databases: a User Account Database and a Assessment Results Database.
User Account Database:
The user Account database is for authentication purposes. Personal information such as user’s name, address, username which is the e-mail address and account password are kept in the User Account Database. This information is kept secure from other parts of the Inner Reach System and limits occasions for data corruption.
Assessment Results Database:
The assessment Results Database combines some of the information from the User Account Database with descriptions of all Inner Reach Assessments, Questions and Symptoms. The Assessment Results Database also contains a user’s results to particular Assessments and Questions.
Users may review or update their information by logging onto the site and updating or changing their personal information. We ask our users to provide their e-mail addresses and passwords at log-in for security purposes.
Use of Personal Information:
We use your personal information for limited purposes, such as;
- To make the site easier to use by not requiring the entering of personal information more than once.
- To provide an experience customized to you.
- To help us create and deliver content most relevant to you.
- To report health care trends within companies to the company. Users are not identified to the company.
- To alert you to system updates, updated information and new services
- For verification purposes.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as mailing, answering customer questions and credit card services. We only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Except as described herein, Inner Reach will disclose personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Inner Reach or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Inner Reach and its Web sites and , (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Inner Reach, its Web sites, or the public.
Control of Personal Information:
When a user registers, or otherwise gives us personal information, we will not share that information with third parties without user permission, other than for the limited exceptions already listed. It will only be used for the purposes stated above. We do not sell or distribute our e-mail lists to advertisers or other third parties.
We do send out periodic e-mails informing our users of technical service issues. A user will not be able to choose to unsubscribe to these mailings, as they are considered an essential part of the service.
Access to Personal Information:
We provide our users with the means to ensure that their personal information is correct and current. Users may review and update their own information at any time. They can:
View and edit personal information already given us.
- Update personal information
Security of Your Personal Information:
We strictly protect the security of your personal information and honor you choices for its intended use. We carefully protect data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Except as stated above, data is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access. Information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country where Inner Reach, its affiliates or agents are located.
Inner Reach also has a significant role in protecting user information. No one can see or edit personal information without knowing the user’s user name and password, so the user must not share these with others.
Trust and confidence in our System and Service is crucial to our business. Inner Reach is committed to the protection of your privacy.
Changes to this Statement:
Inner Reach reserves the right to make changes to this disclaimer and privacy statement. When we do, we will change the date, indicating the revision date and send an e-mail message to users indicating that a change has been made. It is the user’s obligation to notify Inner Reach of changes to the user’s e-mail address.
