PRIVACY POLICY

 

This Privacy Policy describes how we handle your personal information on the BloodHub system and website.

By using the BloodHub.com website, you agree to this Privacy Policy and expressly consent to our collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is effective upon acceptance for new users and is otherwise effective on February 4, 2013.

Any of the terms of this Privacy Policy may be superseded by and are subject to the terms and conditions of any specific agreement that may be entered into between you and Alliance Technologies, LLC (dba BloodHub).

Collection of Information

You can browse our company website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. Once you register as a BloodHub system user on our website and give us your personal information, you are not anonymous to us and you consent to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers located in the United States.

We may collect and store the following personal information:

  • Name, email address, phone number, location and organization information, and preferences;
  • transactional information based on your activities on our site (such as orders, inventory transactions, searches, application uses, correspondence sent through our site or to us, and other content that you generate or that relates to your account);
  • information from your interaction with our site (such as computer and connection information, page views, keywords searched, IP address, and other statistics on site usage).

Use of Information

Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. You agree that we may use your personal information solely to:

  • provide the services and customer support you request;
  • enable your supplier to provide services and support;
  • resolve issues and troubleshoot problems;
  • prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities;
  • customize, measure and improve our services and content;
  • tell you about our services, service updates, and promotional offers.       

Disclosure of Information

We may disclose personal information as necessary to respond to legitimate legal requirements, enforce our policies, or protect anyone's rights, property, or safety. Such information will be disclosed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.  Except where prohibited by applicable law, prior to such disclosure we will provide you with reasonable notice sufficient for you to contest the necessity of such disclosure, as applicable.

We may also share your personal information with:

  • Law enforcement or other governmental officials, in response to a verified request relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity. In such events, we will disclose only information relevant to the investigation, such as name, city, state, zip code, telephone number, email address, username history, IP address, fraud complaints, and transaction history, and, except where prohibited by applicable law, will provide you with reasonable notice sufficient for you to contest the necessity of such disclosure.  
  • Other business entities, should we plan to merge with or be acquired by that business entity, so long as such other business entity has a confidentiality obligation with respect to such information. (Should such a combination occur, we will require that the new combined entity follow this privacy policy with respect to your information.)
  • Other third parties to whom you explicitly ask us to send your information (or about whom you are otherwise explicitly notified and consent to when using a specific service).

HIPAA Compliance

You will be responsible for ensuring that your use of our system and website complies with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).

Cookies

We may use "cookies" (small files placed on your hard drive) on certain of our pages to help analyze user statistics and to enable proper functioning of our site.  We may offer certain features that are available only through the use of cookies, and, while you are always free to decline such cookies, doing so may interfere with or prevent the use of such features.

Account Protection

In order to safeguard your account, do not disclose your password to anyone.  If your password becomes compromised, please change your password immediately

Closing An Account

Upon your request, we will close your account. We do retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our contractual agreements and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.

Data Export

Consistent with each user’s security profile, authorized users can access data from the BloodHub system and website via secured web services.

Security

Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States. We use encryption, firewalls and physical security to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that third parties will not unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and that other users will not abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private. This policy will not, however, provide a defense for us in the event we negligently, recklessly or intentionally compromise the privacy of your personal information in violation of applicable law.
