Online Purchases
If you make a purchase from CarePrecise LLC you may have to provide additional information, such as your street address, telephone number, and other contact information, in order for our fulfillment process to assure that you receive your purchase.

Cookies & Log Files
Like most web sites, careprecise.com and our related wholly-owned web sites may occasionally use cookies and log files to track site usage. A cookie is a tiny data file which resides on your computer which allows web sites you visit to recognize you as a user when you return to the site using the same computer and web browser. Unfortunately, if your browser settings do not allow cookies, you might not be able to use some features of our webspace. Like the information you enter when you established your account (on your My Account pages), cookie and log file data is used to customize your experience on the web site and to provide us with aggregate usage information which helps us improve the site.

Due to the communications standards on the Internet, when you visit our web site we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave our site. We also receive the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, as well as the name of your ISP. This information is used to analyze trends to help us improve our service. CarePrecise may track users' use of the site and obtain user identities via third parties, and use that information commercially.

Advertising
Some of our pages carry advertising links, which are served to our pages by Google AdSense and other advertisers. Any information, such as IP address, which is collected by those advertisers when you click on their ads is outside the scope of this policy. If you have questions about Google AdSense’ Privacy Policy, please visit https://www.google.com/adsense/.

Children
Children are not eligible to use our web sites or services and we ask that minors (under the age of 18) do not submit any personal information to us or use the services. We do not knowingly send communications of any kind to persons under the age of 18, and are grateful to parents for informing us if this should inadvertently occur. In accordance with web best practices, any page that may be inappropriate for children to access will carry a rating tag that can be read by screening software. Parents may contact us at this email address to request that children’s email addresses be placed on our Do Not Send list.

Information Use

We use the personally identifiable information you choose to provide on this site to deliver products and services to you, and may from time to time be used to offer you additional products or services; however, we value your time and trust, and we promise to strictly limit contacting you for promotional purposes. Other information is collected from the use of our web site and publications and is exclusively owned by CarePrecise LLC. This information can be utilized by us in such manner as we, in our sole discretion, deem appropriate. We may use it for commercial purposes.

CarePrecise.com Communications
We will communicate with you through email and notices posted on this website. Emails include but are not limited to messages which you will receive to confirm your subscription, acknowledge the completion of the confirmation process, assist you in using our services, respond to your inquiries and comments, assist you in updating your information, and/or assist you in unsubscribing. Should you ever decide you wish to stop receiving publications to which you have subscribed or for which you have received a subscription invitation, send email to this address to place your email address on our master “Do Not Send” list.

Customized Content
Information you provide when you subscribe or on your My Account pages may be used to customize your experience of our web site or publications.

Software
Information provided during the download, installation and use of CarePrecise LLC and partners' products is used to make your software work properly, and to provide us with information which we may use to improve our products. We reserve the right to use information obtained from software installation and use for reasons relating to product development, statistical analysis and marketing and promotion of products sold directly by CarePrecise LLC. No personally identifiable information collected in this way is rented or sold to any third party.

Clients
CarePrecise LLC reserves the right to disclose the names of business entities with whom we do business, including our business customers.

Information Sharing

Sharing Information With Third Parties
Let us stress again that CarePrecise LLC takes the privacy of our users very seriously. We will never sell or rent the personally identifiable information that you give us using a web form or account page to any third parties for marketing purposes.

By design, our web site and publications do not offer any mechanism by which an email address or other identifiable information that you give us via a web form or account page or email communication can be shared with public Internet users, EXCEPT in the event that you choose to forward an email message from us to another person. Unless you are part of an email discussion group involved in a specific activity of our company in the course of our consulting and standards development work, we send all email publications blind; that is, others receiving the message will not see your email address. However, please remember that if you forward an email message, the recipient will be able to read your email address.

Partnering with Other Organizations to Offer Additional Services
CarePrecise.com and our publications may occasionally partner with other services to offer you expanded services. For example, we may allow an eMagazine to offer you a free subscription, or we may permit a trusted research organization to contact you regarding a survey related to healthcare information technology. Whenever such additional services are offered it will be your choice to make use of the services or not; in other words, it is up to you to respond to the offer. Should you respond to any offer or request provided by a third party, your relationship with them would be governed by any Terms of Use and/or Privacy Policy as they may offer or require, and not by our Terms of Use and/or Privacy Policy.

Legal Disclaimer
It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information when required by law. We will disclose such information when we have a good-faith belief that it is necessary to comply with a court order, ongoing judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on our company or to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

Contents of CarePrecise Data Products

CarePrecise acquires healthcare provder data from government sources that has been cleared for public access.

Email Lists

Our email lists are, for the most part, opt-in lists. CarePrecise LLC works with others in the healthcare industry to reach new customers by partnering in occasional promotions which may result in CarePrecise emailing an addressee who has not explicitly opted in to a CarePrecise list, but who has given our partner permission to send related promotional offers. In such cases, an email message may appear to be unsolicited email (spam), but has been sent within a permissible use agreement. If the message is unwanted, the recipient will in every case be able to be removed from future mailings by following easy instructions at the bottom of the message. If the recipient believes that any such message has been received through unauthorized use or abuse, or if the recipient suspects that CarePrecise received the email address improperly, we strongly encourage them to contact us so that we may investigate and, of course, see to it that the use is not repeated. If a partner which represents itself as having a permissible use agreement with the addressee is found to be unable to substantiate the claim, CarePrecise LLC will remove suspect addresses, block them from future entry, and may take additional action within the partner relationship. Please report suspected abuse at this email address.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may update this privacy policy from time to time. In the event there are significant changes in the way we treat your personally identifiable information, we will display a notice to that effect on this page. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you and your accounts and subscriptions.

Disclaimers, Disclosures, Trademarks

The data contained in CarePrecise® products and services is compiled and processed on an ongoing basis, with monthly update releases, from public and proprietary sources, including the complete National Plan & Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) data submitted by the providers themselves, Medicare Provider Enrollment Chain and Ownership System (PECOS), List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE), Medicare claims data, and other US federal sources obtainable under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and provided monthly by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Office of Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and from the U.S. Census Bureau, a division of the U.S. Department of Commerce, agencies of the U.S. federal government, and the United States Postal Service (USPS). Neither CarePrecise nor its shareholders, partners and affiliates are responsible for data maintained by these or other source providers. All HIPAA-covered entity healthcare providers in the U.S. are required under the Federal NPI regulation to provide their information to the NPI Registry, a federal database of healthcare providers, and to update their records within thirty days of any change in that information. Data is provided "as is" and in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and e-FOIA amendments, and relevant data dissemination notices. While these sources are considered among the most reliable available, no warranty is expressed or implied as to the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, fitness for any purpose, or absence of processing errors of the information presented here or in any CarePrecise product or service, nor that the data structure will not be changed in the future as necessitated by source data, beyond the diligent effort to include all released data. Nothing in the product descriptions, in writing or verbal, may be construed as a warranty, guarantee, or representation of deliverability, save the deliverability guarantee on email addresses. All data ages between updates, and it is reasonable to expect that a portion of records will contain contact information that is incorrect or for other reasons undeliverable. Not all fields are populated with data for every record except where indicated; some fields are not populated due to restrictions imposed by a data supplier even though a field may be present for later use. Where percent of records populated is quoted, the percent quoted is subject to slight differences upon delivery as data is continuously updated. To determine a provider's eligibility to practice and/or to bill Medicare or other health plans and carriers, or to in any other way perform professional activities, users should not rely solely on data included in CarePrecise datasets, particularly regarding alleged fraudulent or infraction activity given as reason for listing in data on excluded providers (records carrying "sanction", "desanction", "warning" and/or "exclusion" identifiers or flags). Data which has been in-matched using algorithmic rather than direct means will include a percentage of error; such data is labeled as such in the documentation. Algorithmic in-matching logic and processes are proprietary trade secrets. Subscriptions are fulfilled with quarterly or monthly releases containing the most recently processed data from all pertinent sources. As the products are digital and cannot reliably be recovered, no refund offer is made, and no refunds will be given for any reason. CarePrecise LLC, its agents, assigns, employees, and contractors accept no responsibility for errors, inaccuracies, timeliness of delivery, or other act of commission or omission, and liability, by any cause whatsoever, and liability is capped at the product purchase price. Purchaser of any CarePrecise product or service acknowledges and agrees to these terms and limitations. Products are licensed to the customer for their use only; all intellectual property including but not limited to data structures, program code and information content remain the property of CarePrecise LLC. Refer to the licensing information page for details and to review the relevant End User License Agreement (EULA).
