TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE
Norton Healthcare (NHC) is pleased to offer you access to information about your visit as well as the services and resources offered at Norton Healthcare through our mobile applications.
We think it is important for you to know how we handle your information communicated via the Internet. These Terms & Conditions of Use outline NHC’s practices regarding Norton mobile applications information access and our sensitivity to the right to privacy. By using the Norton mobile applications, you confirm that you have read this document and agree to be bound by the terms, conditions and statements contained in this document. Norton Healthcare offers its MyNortonChart users health tracking tools for the benefit of patient understanding and reference. By connecting your health data to this application, you give Norton Healthcare providers access to view information logged. Unless you are under the direct care of a Norton Healthcare employed health care professional, this functionality is meant for informational and educational purposes only. Information gathered is not monitored by a health care professional, unless part of an established treatment plan. Therefore, if you have any questions or concerns about your health, you should contact your NHC provider directly.
You should never use Norton mobile applications for urgent matters. For all urgent matters, please contact a physician’s office by telephone, go to an emergency room or dial 9-1-1.
Security and Confidentiality
NHC is committed to protect the confidentiality of medical information. We afford the same degree of confidentiality to medical information received and transmitted by Norton mobile applications as is given to medical information stored in medical charts at NHC and other medium. We limit NHC employees’ access and ability to enter or view information based on their role. Firewalls, passwords, encryption and audit trails are further used to safeguard medical information. We have taken steps to make all information received from our online visitors as secure as possible against unauthorized access and use. You agree that if you accidentally gain access to another patient’s information, you will stop viewing it and will notify NHC by calling 888-4-U-Norton. In no event will you deliberately attempt to access information for any person other than your own information.
You understand that no system can perfectly guard against risks of intentional intrusion or inadvertent disclosure of information. When you use Norton mobile applications, information will be transmitted over a medium that is beyond NHC’s control. YOU HEREBY EXPRESSLY ASSUME THE SOLE RISK OF ANY UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OR INTENTIONAL INTRUSION, OR OF ANY DELAY, FAILURE, INTERRUPTION, OR CORRUPTION OF DATA OR OTHER INFORMATION TRANSMITTED IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF THIS SERVICE. Once the information is received by us, medical information will be treated as confidential and given the same protection that all other NHC medical records are given.
You agree that Norton mobile applications are a communication service offered as a convenience to you. You understand that it provides you with access to information about your visits and health maintenance, and that you are solely responsible for any sharing of such content that you intentionally or unintentionally communicate to others. You understand that messages will be routed to the appropriate NHC department as necessary for handling, and therefore NHC employees, other than your healthcare provider may be involved in addressing your request. Therefore use of the Nutrition Messaging may not be appropriate if there is sensitive information that you would only wish to discuss directly with a particular medical provider.
You understand that you may not transmit any information or message that contains unlawful, threatening, fraudulent, libelous, defamatory, obscene or abusive information or language. Norton mobile applications may not be used for any illegal or unethical activities. Hacking, attempted access or other forms of inappropriate access or attempted access to unauthorized areas or information on this site will lead to potential legal prosecution.
