PRIVACY POLICY

SCOPE: This policy is designed to inform you of the Fazzi Associates, Inc. (Fazzi) policy regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information we receive from users of the Site and home care and hospice agencies. By partnering with Fazzi, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy. Fazzi may disclose information received from users where Fazzi reasonably believes that disclosure of such information is necessary to comply with law (including court and government orders, and civil subpoenas) or to Fazzi’s agents and advisors so that they may provide their services to Fazzi, and only under strict confidentiality restrictions.

INFORMATION COLLECTION, USE, AND SHARING:
Personal Information: When partnering with Fazzi, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to maintain an uninterrupted stream of communication in order to provide pertinent updates regarding the agency. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to the agency name, address, telephone, or any other information deemed necessary to maintain communication.
Learner Information: The information collected regarding learners’ identity shall include name, address, email, employing facility if applicable, professional licensure, credit card information if applicable, learning event attendance and completion, CEUs/contact hours and test grades. Learner training records are the property of the learner and are confidential. Learners may access their training records through Fazzi’s Learning Center or may request release of their training records to themselves or other parties by submitting a request to Fazzi by mail, email, or phone confirmed by email. If a learner is enrolled in a learning event through an education contract with an organization, Fazzi will disclose learner training records to the learner’s designated manager or HR staff member but only with advance consent of the learner.
Audio/Video Content: Any audio or video content on the Site is for educational purposes only and may not be duplicated by visitors. The participants have released the content to Fazzi in writing and reserve no rights.

SECURITY: We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the Site, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Fazzi recognizes the importance of protecting our users’ privacy. To that end we have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our commitment to privacy.
