Our Commitment To Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
The Information We Collect:
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the SCM Associates, Inc. website, or other electronic or physical communications. The types of information collected from the website or during the course of services can include:
Protected Health Information
The Way We Use Information:
We use the information you provide about yourself to provide services, and for billing purposes. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that request.
Does SCM Associates Share the Information It Receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below. Any outside party is either subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.
Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include background checks, analyzing data, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes.
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that SCM Associates, Inc., or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
Protection of SCM Associates and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; or protect the rights, property, or safety of SCM Associates, Inc., our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
Protected Health Information
SCM Associates, Inc. follows applicable federal and state law, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, as amended (“HIPAA”), respecting individually identifiable protected health information. In addition, SCM Associates, Inc. maintains and uses as appropriate a HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices and Business Associate Agreement (copies may be obtained from SCM Associates, Inc. upon request).
Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online or through SCM’s network. We keep all information, electronic and hard copy, secured at all times, and securely destroy all personal information as needed.
