H2U Privacy Statement

The H2U program is committed to protecting your privacy. We have prepared this Privacy Statement to describe to you our practices regarding the personal data we collect from users of our web portal and services.

Personal Health Assessment

H2U will not disclose your identifiable health information to your employer or anyone else without your consent, unless we are required by law to do so. We may combine your nonidentifiable data with that of other members to create summary or aggregate data needed for business analysis, market analysis, communications management, research, or planning purposes. Such nonidentifiable summary information may be shared with employers, H2U affiliate program, or be used to help improve the Personal Health Assessment.

You should be aware of the general risks of transmitting information over the Internet. While H2U uses reasonable measures to protect all personal health information that you provide through the H2U Personal Health Assessment from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, we cannot guarantee that these efforts will always be successful.

Although H2U is not required by law to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) privacy and security regulations, we have adopted policies and procedures that generally comply with the HIPAA regulations due to our relationships with HCA facilities that are required to comply with HIPAA. In addition, H2U is considered a “business associate” of these HCA facilities, and as such, we have contractually agreed to comply with the appropriate HIPAA privacy and security requirements concerning the use and disclosure of your personal health information.

Maintenance and Security of Data

These users may only access the system for the purposes of maintaining your account or membership. Secondly, all information is encrypted using secure communication channels. Thirdly, we use state-of-the-art firewall technology to prevent persons from accessing data on our servers.
