BioLife Genetics Research Privacy Policy

BioLife Genetics Research is committed to ensuring the privacy and accuracy of your confidential information. We do not actively share personal information gathered from our web servers. However, because our clinical research center is based in Texas and conducts business with public institutions, some information collected from our website, including the summary server log information, emails sent to the website, and information collected from web-based forms, may be subject to HIPAA Privacy Practices and the Texas Public Information Act. This means that while we do not actively share information, in some cases we may be compelled by law to release information gathered from our Web servers. BioLife Genetics Research, however, is not a public institution and is not subject to the Texas Public Information Act.

As part of our commitment to maintain the privacy of the general public who utilize our Web sites, BioLife Genetics Research has developed this privacy statement. The statement has two purposes:
To educate the general public about privacy issues
To inform the general public about specific privacy policies and guidelines employed at BioLife Genetics Research

BioLife Genetics Research is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of external websites we link to. BioLife Genetics Research complies with state and federal regulations protecting personal health information of patients, employees and general website visitors.

Information We Gather
Our web servers generate temporary logs that contain the following information:
Internet address of computer being used
Web pages requested
Referring web page
Browser used
Date and Time
Unique person identifier
The data is used in aggregate by system administrators and web content coordinators to tune the website for its efficiency and is not ordinarily associated with specific individuals. Summary reports produced from the logs help web publishers determine what web browsers and pages are most popular.

Cookies
Cookies are small pieces of data stored by the web browser. Cookies are often used to remember information about preferences and pages you have visited. For example, when you visit some sites on the web you might see a “Welcome Back” message. The first time you visited the site a cookie was probably set on your computer; when you return, the cookie is read again. You can refuse to accept cookies, can disable cookies, and remove cookies from your hard drive.
BioLife Genetics Research web servers use cookies in the centralized authentication system called LDAP. These cookies are used so you will not have to repeatedly enter usernames and passwords when you go to different parts of the website. You are normally required to authenticate against the LDAP when you request data about yourself or to ensure that you are a member of the university community. This login process uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) so the user name and password are encrypted between the Web browser and our web server.
Some web servers within BioLife Genetics Research may also use cookies to retain user preference information. It is against company policy to share this information with external third parties.

Security and Accuracy of Confidential Information
BioLife Genetics Research does its best to ensure that the personal information we have about you is accurate. Although no computer system is 100% secure, BioLife Genetics Research has deployed extensive security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control.

Sharing of Information
BioLife Genetics Research does, upon explicit request of users, share information with other parties and gather information from other private data providers. For example, the company receives pertinent data from laboratory testing agencies and will send required reports to sponsor organizations. This is done only at the request of users (persons to whom the information applies). Consistent with HIPAA, we do not release patient information to other parties unless we receive explicit written authorization to do so.

Public Forums
BioLife Genetics Research may make some public chat rooms, forums, message boards, and news groups available to its users. The company does not ordinarily log data transactions during usage of these systems, however, any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should therefore exercise caution when deciding to disclose your confidential information in such places.

Online Surveys
BioLife Genetics Research is a clinical research center. At any time, there may be numerous online surveys being conducted on the company’s website. It is company policy that confidential information gathered in these online surveys is used only for the research purposes indicated in the survey. Unless otherwise noted on the specified survey, your answers are confidential and individual responses will not be shared with other parties unless required by law. Aggregate data from surveys may be shared with external third parties.
