Personal and Protected Health Information of Our Customers’ Individual Clients
Who We Serve
We do not serve individual customers directly. All of our customers are healthcare provider organizations (e.g. hospitals and clinics) or technology solution providers. We provide the interface that is necessary for communications to flow between different types of healthcare provider systems and different types of technology solution systems.
What We Require Our Customers to Do
We require each of our customers to obtain all required consents to process their individual clients’ information if it is necessary to pass the communications through our interface. Every contract we have with our customers expressly provides for the maintenance of individual clients’ privacy and, in particular, the safeguarding of protected health information (PHI). For example, here is our standard contract clause that deals specifically with protected health information (PHI):
Restrictions on Protected Healthcare Information Disclosure, Access and Use: In addition to the obligations of the Parties set out elsewhere in this Agreement, neither Party will disclose, access or use any PHI except where such disclosure, access or use is made strictly in accordance with all applicable privacy laws, rules, and regulations, including, by way of examples, in the United States, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (the “HITECH” Act), in Canada, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (“PIPEDA”), in the European Union the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) or any successor legislation or regulation in those jurisdictions, or similar legislation or regulation of any other applicable jurisdictions.
How We Handle PHI
We do not access individual information in the normal course of providing services related to our interface technology and we immediately return and/or destroy any PHI that is inadvertently sent to us. Here is an excerpt from our Customer Starter Guide:
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY PROTECTED/PERSONAL HEALTH INFORMATION (PHI) TO US IN THE NORMAL COURSE OF OUR SERVICE AND SUPPORT RELATIONSHIP. In summary, this includes any information about the past, present, or future mental or physical conditions, provision of healthcare, or payment for the provision of healthcare that can be linked to any identifiable individual. If the iNTERFACEWARE Team receives any data that appears to include PHI, it is under strict instructions to immediately destroy the data without storing it and notify the sender in writing that it has done so. Exceptions to this rule will occur only after our Organizations have identified a special need for restricted PHI disclosure and use, have entered into all agreements required by applicable laws and regulations for PHI privacy protection and security, and are strictly adhering to the procedures and limitations set out in those agreements.
New GDPR Rights with Respect to Personal Information
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union gives people under its protection certain rights with respect to their personal information collected by us. Accordingly, iNTERFACEWARE recognizes and will comply with GDPR and those rights, except as limited by applicable law. The rights under GDPR include:
Right of Access
This includes your right to access the personal information we gather about you, and your right to obtain information about the sharing, storage, security, and processing of that information.
Right to Correction
You have the right to request the correction of inaccurate personal information.
Right to Erasure
This includes your right to request, subject to certain limitations under applicable law, that your personal information be erased from our possession. This is also commonly known as the "right to be forgotten".
Right to Complain
You have the right to make a complaint regarding our handling of your personal information with the appropriate supervisory authority.
Right to Restrict Processing
You have the right to request restriction of how and why your personal information is used or processed.
Right to Object
You have the right, in certain situations, to object to how or why your personal information is processed.
Right to Portability
You have the right to receive the personal information we have about you and the right to transmit it to another party.
Right to Not Be Subject to Automated Decision-Making
You have the right to object and prevent any decision that could have a legal, or similarly significant effect on you from being made solely based on an automated process. This right is limited however, if the decision is necessary for the execution of any contract between you and us, is allowed by applicable European law, or is based on your explicit consent.
Right to Unsubscribe from Our Communications
You may unsubscribe from our marketing communications by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link located at the bottom of all of our email communications, by updating your communication preferences, or by sending us an email at email@example.com or by mail to iNTERFACEWARE Inc., 672 Dupont Street, Suite 505, Toronto, ON, M6G 1Z6, Canada, Attn: Privacy.
