8. Security of Personal Information

The security of your personal information is important to us. Loconomics has implemented an information security program that contains administrative, technical, and physical controls that are designed to reasonably safeguard Personal Information. We follow generally accepted standards to facilitate compliance with HIPAA, including the following technological safeguards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it:

Further, Loconomics requires all personnel with access to patient/client information for purposes of providing technical support to be trained in the privacy requirements of HIPAA. Loconomics does not share, sell, disclose or provide patient/client information to third parties unless required by law and in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Loconomics also provides numerous settings and features—including user-specific login, multiple user access levels, and the ability to easily add and remove users—to facilitate procedural standards that enable you to maintain overall HIPAA compliance.

As with any technology, it’s incumbent upon you to properly incorporate Loconomics into your business practices and make your own assessment of your resulting overall HIPAA compliance. No method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

If you have any questions about security on our Website, you can contact us at
