LABTAM values your privacy.
PERSONAL AND CONTACT INFORMATION
LABTAM collects, stores and uses personally identifiable information including, date of birth, payment information (e.g., credit card) and contact details such as email address, phone number, shipping/billing address, and contact preferences when it is voluntarily submitted to us for purposes of considering or ordering Tests, receiving Services and/or when you register for updates or contact us.
LABTAM may use this information to contact you for administrative communications, including contacting you by email or phone to notify you when a healthcare provider has ordered a Test on your behalf, as well as to collect payment for that Test, and/or in connection with rendering the Services, including when LABTAM sends a test result or report. We may contact you to provide you with information about LABTAM, the Provider Network Program or to provide you with information which LABTAM believes may be of interest to you. We may also use the information you provide LABTAM to respond to your inquiries, provide you with technical support, to remind you of our Terms of Service, and other policies governing the use of our Services, and/or to comply with law enforcement requests and/or legal process. In addition, LABTAM may send you promotional communications, including updates on products and services offered by LABTAM. You have the ability to opt-out of receiving promotional communications by updating your account settings or by following the unsubscribe instructions within a promotional communication.
LABTAM will not sell or rent your personal information to any other company or organization. Information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed and otherwise transferred to an acquirer, successor or assignee as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of assets, or similar transaction, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets.
HEALTHCARE PROVIDER SERVICE INFORMATION
Healthcare providers, whether your own or one that has been arranged for you pursuant to the Provider Network Program, in each case using the Service, may provide us with information about their patients and their practices, including NPI numbers, address, phone number, email, and the name, job title, and contact information of other providers involved in an individual’s care.
AGGREGATE DATA COLLECTION
LABTAM and our third-party partners track visits to our website as well as to the healthcare providers and patient portals to compile anonymous aggregate statistics. LABTAM uses various technical measures to gather and anonymize statistics which masks them from being associated with any particular individual. Such access is necessary to help us customize and continually improve our users’ experience, to provide you with access to a healthcare provider from the Provider Network Program, should you choose that option, to gather demographic information about our user base, to offer our products and services, to monitor and track our marketing programs, and to serve targeting advertising on our site and on other sites around the Internet.

PROVIDER AND PATIENT PORTALS
Tests and Services are ordered by healthcare providers and their authorized representatives as stated in the Terms of Service. The Service is used for the storage and transmission of Protected Health Information between LABTAM and healthcare providers and their authorized representatives. Protected Health Information is used in accordance with the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and applicable federal and state laws governing patient privacy. Protected Health Information may only be used by or disclosed to your healthcare provider for purposes of treatment and other authorized purposes as stated in the Terms of Service. Information accessed through the use of the Service, including Protected Health Information, is secured using administrative, physical and technical safeguards. For example, the transfer of information is encrypted using industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer / Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) technology and information is stored on controlled servers with restricted access. All access is password protected and each individual user has his/her own User ID and password. All access is tracked at LABTAM for security purposes.
