your information, your rights, our responsibilities
Last Updated: 6 September 2022
- In General
This HIPAA Notice sets forth the nature, purpose, use and sharing of any PHI. “Protected Health Information” or “PHI” as used in this HIPAA Notice, means information about you, including demographic information, that may identify you and that relates to your past, present, or future physical health or condition, treatment, or payment for health care services.
If at any time we make material changes to the HIPAA Notice, we will notify you of those changes on the Site or through the SMP Products or SMP Services and through the publishing of an updated HIPAA Notice. If as the result of such changes you want to alter the ways in which we can use your PHI, you can do so by following the procedure described in the section entitled “Your Rights.”
- Collection of Protected Health Information
We may collect certain PHI from you when you use our Site, SMP Products, or SMP Services, or otherwise interact with us. We collect and obtain your information in a few ways: there is information that you choose to give to us, information we obtain through your use of our Site, SMP Products, or SMP Services and information we obtain from third parties, such as your healthcare provider.
- How Your Protected Health Information is Used
We may use, store, disclose and process your Protected Health Information in the following ways:
- By our health care providers, our staff, and others outside of our office that are involved in your care and treatment for the purpose of providing health care services to you, to support our business operations, to obtain payment for your care, and any other use authorized or required by law.
- To provide, coordinate, or manage your health care and any related services. This includes the coordination or management of your health care with a third party. For example, your protected health information may be provided to a health care provider to whom you have been referred to ensure the necessary information is accessible to diagnose or treat you.
- To bill or obtain payment for your health care services. This may include certain activities that your health insurance plan may undertake before it approves or pays for your services, such as: making a determination of eligibility or coverage for insurance benefits and reviewing services provided to you for medical necessity.
- To support the internal business operations of SMP. These activities include, but are not limited to, improving quality of care, providing information about treatment alternatives or other health-related benefits and services, development or maintaining and supporting computer systems, legal services, and conducting audits and compliance programs, including fraud, waste, and abuse investigations.
- Certain Uses of Protected Health Information Do Not Require Your Authorization
We are allowed or required to share your information in other ways – usually in ways that contribute to the public good, such as public health and research. We have to meet many conditions in the law before we can share your information for these purposes. Some purposes include:
- To address public health and safety issues;
- Product recalls;
- Reporting adverse reactions to medications;
- Reporting suspected abuse, neglect, or domestic violence;
- Preventing or reducing a serious threat to anyone’s health or safety;
- Organ donation requests;
- Work with a medical examiner;
- For worker’s compensation claims;
- For certain research purposes;
- To comply with law enforcement, applicable state or Federal law, or legal process including subpoenas, lawsuits, the like; and
- Under the law, we must make certain disclosures to you upon your request, and when required by the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to investigate or determine our compliance with the requirements of HIPAA.
Other permitted and required uses and disclosures will be made only with your consent, authorization, or opportunity to object unless permitted or required by law. Without your authorization, we are expressly prohibited from using or disclosing your protected health information for commercial purposes and we may not sell Protected Health Information without your authorization. In most cases, we also will not and cannot share psychotherapy information. In the case of fundraising we may contact you, but you have the right to opt-out of further fundraising communications.
- Your Rights
With respect to Protected Health Information, you have certain rights. These rights include:
- The right to obtain an electronic copy of your medical records and other PHI or to otherwise access or inspect your PHI. At your request, we will provide a copy or summary of your PHI within 30 days. We do, however, reserve the right to charge a reasonable, cost-based fee if you ask for another one within 12 months.
- The right to request a correction of your PHI. We may decline if your request is unsupported but will inform you of our decision and make appropriate changes within 60 days of your request.
- The right to request a restriction on the use or disclosure of your protected health information, and we may say no if it would affect your care.
- The right to receive confidential communications from us by asking us to contact you in a specific way (for example by home telephone).
- The right to receive information about those with whom we have shared your PHI. We will include all the disclosures except for those about treatment, payment, and health care operations, and certain other disclosures (such as any you asked us to make). We’ll provide one accounting a year for free but will charge a reasonable, cost-based fee if you ask for another one within 12 months.
- The right to appoint someone to act on your behalf. If you have given someone medical power of attorney or if someone is your legal guardian, that person can exercise your rights and make choices about your health information.
- The right to complain if you feel we have violated your rights by contacting us using the information in Paragraph 10, below. You also can file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights by sending a letter to 200 Independence Avenue, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20201, calling 1-877-696-6775, or visiting hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/. We will not retaliate against you for filing a complaint.
- SMS Communications
Patients utilizing our SMS communications expressly acknowledge that SMS may not be secure communications, and may result in the disclosure of PHI. SMP will use reasonable efforts to limit any PHI contained in SMS messages, but SMP shall not be responsible for the misuse of PHI that is properly sent to patients via SMS technology. Patients may opt out of SMS communications at any time
- Breach Notification
In the unlikely event of a security incident involving your PHI, we will notify you in accordance with applicable law. Unless otherwise required by law, notification will be made to you no later than 60 days from the breach discovery and will include a brief description of how the breach occurred, the PHI involved and contact information for you to ask questions.
- Our Responsibilities
We are required to maintain the privacy and security of your Protected Health Information in accordance with applicable law. We will notify you promptly if a breach occurs that may have compromised the privacy or security of your information. We must follow the duties and privacy practices described in this notice and give you a copy of it.

- Provider License to Certain Data
This Section shall apply only to Providers:
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, SMP hereby grants Provider a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, and non-transferable license to access and use the certain proprietary data regarding Provider’s Customers (“Patient Data”), solely for Provider’s internal business purposes and solely for the purposes of providing patient care (the “Permitted Use”). SMP shall deliver the Patient Data to Provider electronically by electronic or other means determined in SMP’s sole discretion. Such Patient Data is a trade secret of SMP and must be kept confidential.

Any purpose or use not specifically authorized herein is prohibited unless otherwise agreed to in writing by SMP. Without limiting the foregoing and except as otherwise expressly set forth in this Agreement, Provider shall not at any time, directly or indirectly: (i) copy, modify, or create derivative works of the Patient Data, in whole or in part; (ii) rent, lease, lend, sell, sublicense, assign, distribute, publish, transfer, or otherwise make available the Patient Data; (iii) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, decode, adapt, or otherwise attempt to derive or gain access to the source of the Patient Data or methods used to compile the Patient Data, in whole or in part; (iv) remove any proprietary notices included within the Patient Data; (v) publish, enhance, or display any compilation or directory based upon information derived from the Patient Data; or (vi) use the Patient Data in any manner or for any purpose that infringes, misappropriates, or otherwise violates any intellectual property right or other right of any person, or that violates any applicable law.
Provider shall use all reasonable legal, organizational, physical, administrative, and technical measures and security procedures to safeguard and ensure the security of the Patient Data and to protect the Patient Data from unauthorized access, disclosure, duplication, use, modification, or loss. For clarity, Provider agrees and acknowledges that the Patient Data comprises Protected Health Information pursuant to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) Privacy Rule and, therefore Provider: (1) represents and warrants that it is in compliance with all applicable HIPAA rules and regulations; and (2) agrees to safeguard and ensure the security of the Patient Data in accordance with HIPAA and all other applicable laws governing the access to and use of Protected Health Information. To the extent the nature of the relationship between Provider and SMP requires a Business Associate Agreement (“BAA”), Provider agrees to execute a mutually agreeable BAA with SMP.
PATIENT DATA IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND SMP HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE. SMP SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ALL WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE PRACTICE. SMP MAKES NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND THAT THE PATIENT DATA, OR ANY PRODUCTS OR RESULTS OF ITS USE, WILL MEET PROVIDER’S OR ANY OTHER PERSON’S REQUIREMENTS, OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, ACHIEVE ANY INTENDED RESULT, BE COMPATIBLE OR WORK WITH ANY SOFTWARE, SYSTEM, OR OTHER SERVICES, OR BE SECURE, ACCURATE, COMPLETE, FREE OF HARMFUL CODE, OR ERROR FREE.
Provider shall indemnify, hold harmless, and, at SMP’s option, defend SMP from and against any Losses resulting from any Third-Party Claim based on Provider’s: (i) negligence or willful misconduct; or (ii) use of the Patient Data in a manner not authorized by this Agreement, provided that Provider may not settle any Third-Party Claim against SMP unless such settlement completely and forever releases SMP from all liability with respect to such Third-Party Claim or unless SMP consents to such settlement, and further provided that SMP shall have the right, at its option, to defend itself against any such Third-Party Claim or to participate in the defense thereof by counsel of its own choice.

You agree and must at all times indemnify, defend and hold SMP and its third party suppliers or licensors, each of our and their business partners and each of our and their respective employees, officers, directors, managers and representatives (each an “Indemnitee” and collectively the “Indemnitees”), harmless from and against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, judgments, penalties, fines, costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and court costs) suffered or incurred by any of the Indemnitees as a result of any third party claim, action, suit, or proceeding arising out of or incident to (i) any User or other person’s use of or access to the Platform in a manner not authorized by these Terms, or in violation of any applicable laws, (ii) Content including any claim involving infringement or misappropriation of third party rights or the use, development, design, manufacture, production, advertising, promotion or marketing of User Content, (iii) any breach by User or any other person of any term or condition of these Terms, including without limitation, any representation and warranty hereunder, or (iv) any act, omission or misconduct of User or any other person using or accessing the Platform.
We will promptly notify you of any claim which we become aware of and which we believe to be subject to indemnification under this Section; provided that our failure to promptly notify you shall not affect your indemnification obligations hereunder except to the extent that our failure to promptly notify you materially prejudices your ability to defend the claim. At our option, you will have the right to defend against any such claim(s) with counsel of your own choosing (subject to a conflicts assessment), and to settle such claim as you deem appropriate, provided that you (nor any Person acting on your behalf) may enter into any settlement without SMP’s prior written consent (which may be conditioned or withheld in our sole and absolute discretion) and provided that we may, at any time, elect to take over control of the defense and settlement of any claim.
If you reside in the United States, you and SMP agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Platform (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief (and associated legal relief) in a court of competent jurisdiction to redress or prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other Intellectual Property Rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and SMP are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney general action, or any other representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and SMP otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding.
- Rules and Governing Law
This agreement to arbitrate evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med. The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Florida and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
- Location and Procedure
Unless you and SMP otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and SMP submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if SMP changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of SMP’s email to you notifying you of such change.

- Third Party Beneficiary
These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than the parties.

If you are visiting this Site or utilizing SMP Products or SMP Services from a country other than the United States, the various communications you send and receive may result in the transfer of information across international boundaries. If you are located in the European Union you should be aware that information you provide or which is otherwise collected on this Site or through any SMP Products or SMP Services rendered may be transferred to countries (including the United States) which may not have data protection laws deemed as adequate as those in the EU.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Site, SMP Products, and SMP Services are intended for users in the United States and those not governed by privacy policies of other countries. Users outside the United States are advised not to disclose Personal Information to us.
- Your Privacy Rights
We will ensure that you can exercise your rights pertaining to your Personal Information, including rights as provided by various data protection laws. We therefore inform you that, where applicable under relevant law, you are entitled:
- to have access to your Personal Information upon simple request – that is, you may receive a copy of such data (if requested), unless such data is made directly available to you, for instance within your personal account;
- to have access upon simple request, and free of charge, the categories and names of addresses of third parties that have received Personal Information for direct marketing purposes;
- to obtain a rectification of your Personal Information should it be inaccurate, incomplete or obsolete;
- to obtain the deletion of your Personal Information in the situations set forth by applicable data protection law (the “right to be forgotten”).
- to withdraw your consent to the data processing without affecting the lawfulness of processing, where your Personal Information has been collected and processed based on your consent. If at any time you wish to withdraw your consent to our processing of your data or opt out of our use of your information for internal marketing purposes or for compiling aggregate risk reports, you may do so by sending a written notice to: email@example.com. Note that your withdrawal of consent may prevent us from providing the SMP Services to you;
- to object to the processing of your Personal Information (where it has been collected and processed based on our legitimate interests) in which case we may ask you to justify your request by explaining to us your situation;
- to request a limitation of the data processing in the situations set forth by applicable law;
- to have your Personal Information directly transferred by us to a third-party processor of your choice (where technically feasible and when processing is based on your consent); and
- for non-discrimination, as defined under relevant law, in the SMP Services or quality of SMP Services you receive from us for exercising your rights.
Under certain laws, you may also have the right to “opt-out” of having your Personal Information sold to a third party. However, we do not sell your Personal Information to any other party. Only in the case of a merger, sale, financing, acquisition, or other transaction involving all or part of us may your information be involved in a transaction.
For deletion/“right to be forgotten” requests, we will undertake a good faith effort to accommodate requests for access to or deletion of personal information. However, these requests may be subject to the evaluation of additional factors, including disproportionate burden or expense, or the risk to the rights, including the privacy rights, of others.
We will strive and work to resolve any inquiry you may have regarding our privacy practices. EU residents may also file a complaint before a competent data protection authority regarding the processing of your Personal Data. While we suggest that you contact us beforehand, if you wish to exercise this right, you should contact the competent data protection authority directly.
If you have any questions, would like to exercise any of these rights, or if you need any assistance with privacy related matters, please contact us as described in the “How to Contact Us” section below. We will take the necessary steps to respond to you as soon as possible.
