6. Sharing Your Information
If you grant access to your information to other individuals, Web sites, mobile devices, social networks, health plans, hospitals, doctors, nurses, caregivers or other health care professionals, you understand that these other individuals, Web sites, mobile devices, social networks, health plans, hospitals, doctors, nurses, caregivers or other health care professionals can access your information, store a copy of it and share it with others. Any such copies of your information are governed by those individuals, Web sites, mobile devices, social networks, health plans, hospitals, doctors, nurses, caregivers or other health care professionals privacy practices. Others may be able to view your information from such copies. We are not responsible for the use of your information by others to whom you or your permitted invitees grant access to your information. You are solely responsible for any unauthorized use of the Site conducted via your password and User ID.
Your Me+U CARE multimedia messages may contain personal or private videos, pictures, audio, music or text also referred to herein as (“assets”). Sharing Me+U CARE messages and the content within your messages is done so entirely at Your sole direction. Your Me+U CARE multimedia messages are shared with others in two ways: (1) internally with other Me+U CARE Users directly or (2) or through links embedded in Me+U CARE invitations sent by Me+U CARE on your behalf to recipients you’ve selected. It is solely at your risk that you share including making sure that you do not give access to your account credentials or remain in a logged in state on a device that someone else has access to. Me+U CARE multimedia messages shared externally are limited-access, where access is gained through an obscured URL system. This obscured URL makes it difficult but not impossible for a third party to guess the URL address of your Me+U CARE multimedia message or content without an invitation from you including the relevant URL. However, because the Me+U CARE multimedia messages and content are not password-protected, a possibility exists that an unauthorized third party could discover your Me+U CARE multimedia messages and/or content. Me+U CARE messages shared with others can be designated shareable or “mashable” by You. Assets which comprise your shared or “mashable” Me+U CARE messages can be reused, edited and redistributed in part or whole by others, or posted on websites and devices accessible to the public. You take the sole responsibility and risk for sharing mashable messages.
7. Protecting the Confidentiality and Security of Information
We have implemented industry-recognized safeguards to help protect your information from unauthorized access. These safeguards are in compliance with HIPAA as understood by the healthcare industry. These safeguards include:
Me+U uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer), the industry standard method for computers to communicate securely without risk of manipulation or recipient impersonation. We utilize SSL in the online registration process, in the login process, and in the account management section of the Site.
Me+U has received GeoTrust’s highest level of SSL authentication certificate.
Me+U uses strong encryption technology to protect sensitive information.
Me+U employs firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and system monitoring to protect against unauthorized access of our systems.
Your user accounts are also protected by the password you use to access your online account with Me+U, and we urge you to take steps to keep your password safe. If you feel your password has been compromised, you should change it immediately by logging into your account and visiting the “My Profile & Settings” section. After you have finished using our Site, you should log out of your Me+U account and exit your browser.
WE TAKE THESE PRECAUTIONS IN AN EFFORT TO PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION AGAINST SECURITY BREACHES. HOWEVER, THIS IS NOT A GUARANTEE THAT SUCH INFORMATION MAY NOT BE ACCESSED, DISCLOSED, ALTERED, OR DESTROYED BY BREACH OF SUCH FIREWALLS AND SECURE SERVER SOFTWARE. BY USING OUR SITE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO ASSUME THESE RISKS.
