MySalus Privacy Policy

We take your membership and trust in the community very seriously. While MySalus takes every precaution to provide a secure site, it remains your responsibility to to protect your Health and Wellness information when sharing with others.

According to, “All those who meet the definition of a ‘covered entity’ under HIPAA must comply with HIPAA requirements to protect the privacy and security of health information.
Covered entities must provide individuals with certain rights with respect to accessing their health information. Those defined as covered entities are: Health care providers, Health plans, Healthcare clearinghouses and Business Associates. Further, entities or persons that provide data transmission services to a covered entity and require routine access to protected health information (PHI) and/or Subcontractors that create, receive, maintain, or transmit PHI on behalf of a business associate. Vendors that offer personal health records to one or more individuals on behalf of a covered entity.

MySalus does not transmit any of your Personal Health Information (PHI), only you do, as you so choose to (or not). We will indicate HIPAA compliant partners for the purposes of electronic PHI transmissions over time that you can choose to partner with for HIPAA related services. That said, MySalus does utilize “Security Best Practices” following the HIPAA guidelines below.

Annual assessments of possible security risks are also important for health organizations as they can highlight areas of potential future violation. Discovering a potential security threat in advance is better than dealing with the repercussions of a HIPAA breach.
Organizations need to have ample emergency data back-up plans to safeguard private information in case of disaster or emergency. Natural disasters, blackouts, building fires, etc. could otherwise endanger personal information.
Data encryption for all personal data is important—especially when it is being transmitted over public networks or stored on mobile devices. Failing to properly encrypt data could present a serious security risk.
Security of physical areas of access to personal information is also important as this limits the number of people who can view said information. Unauthorized personnel should not be able to have physical access to personal information. In fact, only people who need access to this personal information in order to carry out their jobs should be able to access the information. Technical security protocols should be implemented in order to keep unauthorized personnel from accessing personal information.
Organizations should ascertain that all of their business associates have signed BA agreements promising to adhere to all HIPAA requirements. Subcontractors should also be vetted for HIPAA compliance.
Secure methods need to be used to get rid of all types of personal information that is no longer necessary.
Secure methods need to be used to get rid of all types of personal information that is no longer necessary.
Organizations need to have established plans in place to deal with and document personal information breaches.
MySalus operates and may operate other websites. It is MySalus’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, MySalus collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. MySalus’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how MySalus’ visitors use its website. From time to time, MySalus may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
MySalus also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs/sites. MySalus only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to MySalus’ websites choose to interact with MySalus in ways that require MySalus to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that MySalus gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with MySalus are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, MySalus collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with MySalus. MySalus does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
MySalus may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. MySalus may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, MySalus does not disclose personally identifying information (PII) other than as described below.
MySalus discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on MySalus’ behalf or to provide services available at MySalus’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using MySalus’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. MySalus will not rent or sell potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, MySalus discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when MySalus believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of MySalus, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered member of MySalus and have supplied your email address, MySalus may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with MySalus and our products.

If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. MySalus takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information.

MySalus visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using MySalus’ websites, with the drawback that certain features of MySalus’ websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
If MySalus, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that MySalus goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.  You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of MySalus may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
