IX. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), as amended by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), which was part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, your health plan may be a “covered entity,” as that phrase is defined in HIPAA, HITECH, and the federal rules that implement those laws. NRG Fitness, its agents and subcontractors may be “business associates,” as that phrase is defined in HIPAA, HITECH, and implementing federal regulations. Those laws and rules permit covered entities to disclose “protected health information” to business associates for certain functions and activities, such as data analysis, data aggregation, management, administration, and other services.
In general, “protected health information” is information transmitted or maintained in electronic media or any other form (i.e., paper) about individuals who have been deceased for less than 50 years, that is created or received by a health care provider, health plan, health care clearinghouse, or a business associate; that identifies or for which there is a reasonable basis to believe the information can be used to identify the individual; and that relates to the individual’s past, present, or future physical or mental health or condition, the provision of health care to the individual, or payment for the provision of health care to an individual.
X. Uses and Disclosures of Personal Information and Protected Health Information
NRG Fitness may use and disclose your personal information to perform its services and as permitted by law and its contracts with its customers. If you are participating in our site through your employer, health plan, plan sponsor, we may use your personal information to verify your information and eligibility with your health plan. NRG Fitness may also use the personal information provided by you to register you with the site or to provide you with access to your laboratory results.
NRG Fitness may share aggregated, de-identified information with your employer, health plan, or plan sponsor about employees’ participation and use of the site. De-identified information does not contain the same types of identifiers as personal information or protected health information; de-identified information is information from which eighteen (18) personal characteristics that could reasonably be used to identify you have been removed. De-identified, aggregated data may be used by your employer, health plan, or plan sponsor to evaluate NRG Fitness’s health and wellness coaching programs.
XI. Updating Personal Information
If you would like to review or update your personal information, or ensure it is accurate, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If we received your personal information from a third party (such as your health plan), and you update that information, we do not share the updated information back to the third party. Therefore, if you update your information on our site, you will also need to provide updated information to the relevant third parties.
