This notice describes how medical information about you may be used and disclosed and how you can get access to this information. Please review it carefully.

Please consult with a health care professional for all matters relating to personal medical and health care issues.
HEALTH AND MEDICAL INFORMATION
Certain health and medical information about you is protected under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) and applicable state law. This information may be provided by you online or offline, or may be collected by us from other methods such as through a health care provider. We strive to protect covered health and medical information as required by HIPAA and applicable state law. Similarly, we may use covered health and medical information as permitted by HIPAA and applicable state law.
To learn more about our privacy practices regarding health and medical information under HIPAA, please contact our office manager.
No transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. We will, however, use a number of physical security methods, electronic security methods, and administrative methods to protect the security, confidentiality, and integrity of information submitted through this Web site.
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND STORAGE
Personally Identifiable Information: We do not purposely collect information that personally identifies you unless you choose to provide it to us (for example, Web pages that allow you to register for a class, complete an online job application or send an e-mail message). The personal information you submit is shared only with those people within our organization who need this information to respond to your question or request, third parties who provide services for you on our behalf (such as payment processors), and as otherwise permitted by law to allow us to operate our business or to comply with applicable laws.
As used in this Privacy Statement, personal information does not include information protected under HIPAA or applicable state laws, which is protected as described in the section “Health and Medical Information” above.
Most email does not provide a completely secure and confidential means of communication. It is possible that your email could be viewed inappropriately by another Internet user. If you choose to provide us with your email address or to send us information using email, such as through our “contact us” or “submit a patient story” sections, any misaddressing may result in others intercepting, altering, forwarding or using the information without authorization. If you wish to keep your information completely private, you should not use email.
From time to time, a representative from ApicoPain.com may wish to deliver information to you via email. In addition, ApicoPain.com may occasionally distribute news and announcements via email. Please note, we do not sell, trade, or otherwise share our email lists with others. You may remove your name from any list you have registered for using our website’s established method.
NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
We may collect information that does not personally identify you for various purposes (for example, website usage, traffic patterns, site performance and related statistics based on our tracking record of your visits to our website).
We may collect some of this information using persistent “cookies” to recognize a repeat visitor; this helps us collect general information about how our site is viewed. We may also collect and log the IP address of each visitor to gather aggregate data on visitors to our site. Keep in mind that neither cookies nor IP addresses are used to collect any personal information from you.
