Sites Covered by this Privacy Statement
Mednetworx, Inc. and its affiliated entities (collectively referred to as “Mednetworx”) respect your right to privacy. Mednetworx has created this privacy statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to protect your personal information and your right to privacy. “Personal Information” is any information that can be used to identify an individual, and may include, but is not limited to, name, email address, postal or other physical address, title, occupation and other information required to provide our services and products or to carry out a transaction you have requested.
This statement outlines our Personal Information-handling practices for the www.Mednetworx.com and related sites (collectively referred to as the Mednetworx Website) owned by Mednetworx and its affiliates or subsidiaries. It does not apply to those sites that do not display or link to this Privacy Statement or that have their own privacy statements.

Mednetworx protects personal health information pursuant to its HIPAA policy.
This statement is readily available through a link on our home page and at the bottom of every MedNetworRx site page. Some Mednetworx sites may have their own, possibly different, privacy policies. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each of the websites that you visit or review.

When we use third party service providers for credit card processing services, we will enter into a written agreement with such third party ensuring appropriate security and confidentiality measures are in place to safeguard your Personal Information.
