We may use information about you to notify you of opportunities available on or through the Site, to customize the Site content for you, to send you materials that you request from us, and for other legitimate and lawful business purposes.

SCIO Health Analytics® may combine information about you with information about others who use the Site and remove all personal identifiers from the resulting combined information to create "de-identified information." We use de-identified information in the development of products and services to meet the continuing needs of our clients, and to analyze and improve the content, features, materials, and opportunities that we may make available on the Site. If you contact us for support or assistance, we may use information about you or your computer that you provide for purposes such as verifying whether your computer meets the minimum requirements needed to use the Site and our various services.

These data may reveal such things as the Internet Protocol address assigned to your computer, specific pages that you accessed on the Site or immediately prior to visiting the Site, and the length of time you spend at the Site, but without combining these data with other sources of information, they do not readily or personally identify you. For security reasons and to confirm the integrity of our data, however, we may combine components of these data with other sources of information that may identify you.

Our Use of "Cookies"

"Cookies" are small files of data that reside on your computer and allow us to recognize you as a SCIO Health Analytics® client if you return to the Site using the same computer and browser. We send a "session cookie" to your computer if and when you visit the website. These cookies allow us to recognize you if you visit multiple pages in the Site during the same session.

We also use longer-lasting cookies to display your name on some of our web forms, so that you don't have to retype your name and contact information each time you request content that requires a form to be submitted. Our cookie files are encoded so that any information stored in them may only be interpreted by the servers on the Site. Web browsers and other software allow you to erase cookies from your computer's hard drive, to block or reject all cookies, or to receive a warning before a cookie is stored. If you choose to reject cookies, the Site may not operate efficiently for you.

Security of the Information

SCIO Health Analytics® maintains physical, electronic, and administrative security safeguards to protect the information it possesses. SCIO Health Analytics® constantly monitor its systems to ensure that the information is secure. Those safeguards are updated as technology and information becomes available. Nevertheless, no set of security safeguards is guaranteed to be impenetrable. We cannot and do not guarantee that communications to or from the Site, or that data transmitted or stored on or through the Site, are or will be totally secure from loss, misuse or unauthorized access by third parties.

Access to the information

In accordance with both federal and state laws, SCIO Health Analytics® limits access to any information we collect to only those employees and representatives of SCIO Health Analytics® who have a need to know the information in order to perform the designated services or to perform the administrative requirements of SCIO Health Analytics®. In all cases the information made available is the minimum amount necessary to accomplish the tasks for which the information has been collected. If it is necessary for SCIO® to disclose that information to any third party we only do so after securing the same promises of security that SCIO Health Analytics® maintains in regard to that information.
