Under no circumstances will we divulge or release to a third party any health or personal information that you supply to your provider through our network.

Information Collection and Use
We ask for your name and other individually identifying information when you register for Patient Online Portal. We may also access information about you from your provider in order to provide Patient Online Portal services. For example, we access the list of providers you have seen in the past, in order to allow you to select a provider for a new appointment.
HealthCare Partners will not, under any circumstances, share any health or personal information with any third party other than your designated provider.
We have implemented technology and security policies, rules and measures to protect the health and personal data that we have under our control from unauthorized access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction, and accidental loss. We also protect your information by requiring that all our employees and others who have access to, or are associated with, the processing of your data to respect your confidentiality.
In order to provide you with greater value, HealthCare Partners or your provider may provide links to various third-party Web sites. However, even if a third-party affiliation exists between HealthCare Partners or your provider and that destination site, we exercise no authority over linked sites, each of which maintains independent privacy and data collection policies and procedures. HealthCare Partners assumes no responsibility or liability for these independent methods or actions and is not responsible for the independent policies or procedures of destination sites. Similarly, we cannot take responsibility for the privacy initiatives or the content of such Web sites. These destination links are provided only for your convenience, and as such, you access them at your own risk.
