Our Commitment to Privacy

We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of personal information about the participants under our care. We are proud of our privacy practices and want you to know how we protect this information and use it to serve you best.

How and Why We Obtain Personal Information

We collect information about your health status and practices via questionnaires and other assessments. In many cases, you'll enter your answers here on the web site. In some cases, we may enter this information for you after working with you. We take great care to protect your Personally Identifiable Information and, when we use it, we do so with respect for your privacy. We may use Personally Identifiable Information about you to develop and deliver services and content that can help you maintain or improve your state of health. We may also use this information to respond to inquiries from you. We may use your information, combined with information of many other participants, to report information about the overall effectiveness of our health promotion programs to your company leadership. When this is done, no personally identifiable information is shown, just aggregate information with many people's data mixed together.

We do not disclose any Personally Identifiable Information to any third party except where such disclosure is required to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; or in special cases, such as in response to a physical threat to you or others, to protect property or defend or assert legal rights. In the event that we are compelled to disclose your Personally Identifiable Information in response to legal action, we will attempt to notify you unless doing so would violate the law or court order.

How We Protect Your Information

We consider the protection of sensitive information to be a foundation of our service to you. We strive to earn this trust through sound information protection policies so that we may maximize our ability to help you reach your health and wellness goals. We employ extensive physical, electronic and procedural controls and we regularly adapt these controls to respond to changing requirements and advances in technology.

We restrict access to Personally Identifiable Information to those who require it to provide this service to you. Our staff at your facility and the program managers assigned to the your health promotion program are the only people with rights to access your Personally Identifiable Information. Our service providers are BSDI, the developer of the Motivation web service, and LogicWorks LLC, the data center management company. Only certified Business Associates at BSDI have access to your Personally Identifiable Information and all are restricted by the terms of this privacy policy. Neither BSDI nor LogicWorks make any use of Personally Identifiable Information.

Privacy Online

Privacy, security and service in our online operations are an essential aspect of the service that we provide. In addition to the personnel restrictions described above, we employ the following Internet-specific practices.

We make extensive use of firewall barriers, encryption techniques and authentication procedures to maintain the security of your online session and to protect your Motivation accounts from unauthorized access. We use only "session cookies" - cookies that expire as soon as you close your browser - in order to facilitate site navigation and to personalize your experience on our site. Our cookies do not identify you by name as an individual and cannot be used to access the Motivation software without your knowledge. Session cookies do not "follow" you when you visit other sites nor can they be seen or used at other sites.

When you visit the Motivation site, we may collect technical and navigational information, such as computer browser type, pages visited, and average time spent on our Web sites. This information is only collected and analyzed to improve our Web design and functionality and is not associated with or traced to your individual account.

For your security, Motivation may periodically require you to change your password and to do so using passwords that are reasonably secure. However, password and account security are largely a matter of your personal security practices! You should not write your password down nor should you use passwords that are easily guessed such as your pet's name or favorite team.
