Privacy Policy

The Physioview Web site is owned and operated by North Coast Medical, Inc., a California corporation (referred to herein as “us”, “we”, “our”, or “NCM”).
NCM is committed to honoring the privacy of your personal information.
This privacy policy describes the ways in which we collect, use, and protect your information, as well as the ways in which you can access and control the information available to us.

Please read this entire statement before using or submitting information to our Web site.

About This Privacy Policy

This privacy policy only applies to the Physioview Web site.
The database of information submitted to the Physioview Web site is stored using Honeycomb Internet Services.
To read about Honeycomb’s privacy policy and security measures, please visit http://www.honeycomb.com/privacy_policy.htm.

We have no control over the manner in which other Web sites treat your privacy, including but not limited to any Web sites that are linked to the Physioview Web site.
We recommend that you read the privacy policy at each Web site you visit after leaving the Physioview Web site.

Our Web site is password protected for administrators, providers, and patients.
Each subscribing clinic identifies an individual who will serve as the account administrator, and separate sub-accounts are provided for a number of providers associated with that clinic.
Each provider in turn sets up an account for each patient, and, through the Web site, we provide exercise instructional materials for the providers to use with those patients.
Providers are then able to edit instructions and materials to meet the needs of individual patients.

Surveys may appear on our Web site allowing providers to offer feedback, suggestions, or other information, should they choose to participate.

We collect and store data on what exercises providers assign on a given day and when the exercise is discontinued.
This data is linked to the provider’s identifying information.

How We Use Your Information

Clinics and Providers

We use patient-specific information submitted by providers to identify exercises that are appropriate for each individual patient.
We also track which exercises are assigned on which dates, and when a given exercise is discontinued.

We may use submitted information to contact a clinic by telephone, mail, or email, or to contact a provider by email.
Such contact is typically for the purpose of obtaining feedback to improve our services and enhance customer satisfaction.
We will not initiate contact with a clinic, provider, or patient with the purpose of soliciting the purchase of other products or services.

We may use information submitted by a clinic during registration to verify that the clinic exists and is legitimate.

Patients

We use patient email addresses to send each patient a message which tells the patient that exercises are available on-line, and provides the patient with a temporary user ID and password.
We do not otherwise use or distribute patient information.

How We Protect Your Information

Accounts are all protected by a user ID and password. Administrators, providers, and patients are individually responsible for protecting the user IDs and passwords that provide access to their accounts.

Please note that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

All user information is stored using Honeycomb’s storage service.

All NCM employees and independent contractors with access to any administrator’s, provider’s, or patient’s personal information are prohibited from using such information for purposes outside the scope of their NCM employment or work agreements, and are required to abide by this privacy policy.
Those who violate the policy are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of their employment and legal action.

Your Access To And Control Of Information

If a clinic decides to terminate its subscription to our service or does not wish to subscribe following a free trial, all personally identifiable information related to that clinic, its providers, and its patients will be deleted from our electronic database upon the request of any clinic representative, provider, or patient associated with the terminated account.

We restrict the viewing of each patient’s personal information and personalized exercise instructional materials to NCM and its employees, the patient, the patient’s provider, other providers within the same clinic, and the clinic administrator.
We restrict the editing of such information to NCM and its employees, the patient’s provider, other providers within the same clinic, and the clinic administrator.
Patients may change their own user IDs and passwords, however, as desired.

Children’s Privacy

Our Web site is designed and intended for adult providers and administrators.
However, some patients that use our Web site may be children, including children under the age of 13.
The personal information we require for patients under the age of 13 is limited to full name, email address, date of birth, and exercise aspect, as is required for all patients.
We do not distribute the personal information of any patients – children or otherwise – to third parties.
Nonetheless, we require that any provider with a patient under age 13 provide that child’s parents or guardians with notice of this privacy policy, and that at least one of the child’s parents or guardians email us indicating his or her consent, before that patient’s personal information may be entered on our system.

Privacy Policy Changes

We will make every effort to notify registered clinic administrators, providers, and patients of any significant changes made to our privacy policy, and will post such changes to this Web site in a timely manner.
