Privacy Policy

Overview
Privacy is important to MinibarRx, LLC and the entities with which it contracts to perform certain non-medical services (collectively, “MinibarRx”); MinibarRx strives to be a responsible participant in the health care industry. MinibarRx’s corporate policy is to protect the privacy and confidentiality of its customers and those individuals whose health care information may be identified within the services supplied by MinibarRx to its customers. This Privacy Policy describes what information MinibarRx collects and how that information is protected and used. To make this policy easy to find, the link to this policy is available to users logged in on MinibarRx’s web site.

MinibarRx operates under the following set of strict privacy principles:
Except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy, information supplied by a physician or patient that could be used to identify or contact a patient, such as name, e-mail address or other similar information (“Personal Information”), will not be disclosed to anyone unless the patient indicates that MinibarRx may do so or unless permitted under a Business Associate Agreement (as hereinafter defined) between MinibarRx and the physician. Personal Information will be maintained and protected by MinibarRx as “Individually Identifiable Health Information” in accordance with the requirements and definitions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 (Public Law 104-191) and any implementing regulations. MinibarRx will also observe all other state and federal laws relating to transmission, storage, and access to medical records and other health care data.

MinibarRx may share statistical deidentified information about its customers as a group, such as usage habits, demographics and similar information that cannot be used to identify or contact patients (“Aggregate Information”) with various third parties.

Disclosure of Personal Information
Except as set forth herein, MinibarRx will not disclose to unaffiliated companies any Personal Information.

MinibarRx may provide to third parties Aggregate Information that does not allow the individual patients to be identified or contacted. MinibarRx may disclose Personal Information to any person performing audit, legal, operational, or other services for it.
