How do we protect your information?
We are painstaking in our efforts to protect your personally identifiable information. This includes, among other things, using firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection and site monitoring. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so despite our efforts, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us.
Internally, we will restrict access to your personally identifiable information to employees who need access to the information in order to do their jobs. These employees are committed to our privacy policies.
As a provider of services to the healthcare industry, Sandata has implemented programs to address the transaction standards, and the privacy and security implications of the rules promulgated pursuant to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”).
How can you help protect your information?
If you are using the Sandata Application for which you registered and chose a password, we recommend that you never divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited manner. Also remember to sign out of the Application and close your browser window when you have finished working. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if others have access to your computer or mobile device.

The policies described in this Privacy Statement apply solely to information collected by Sandata’s website.
