Email Communication Policy
Regular email is not a secure form of communication. The SCNC uses a secure email service, DataMotion, for all communications. DataMotion requires that each party log in using a user name and password before accessing email messages. You may also request that the SCNC use non-secure (unencrypted) email and/or text for various types of communication.

Authorization to Disclose Protected Health Information
This form may be used to indicate the purpose; the records to be disclosed; the method of delivery; and the duration of your authorization to disclose protected health information.
SCNC Authorization for Release of PHI
We may also collect information automatically about the use of the website, through, for example, “cookies” or “IP addresses” (as described below). The SCNC also archives log files and uses non-personally identifying information in aggregate form to detect errors with the website, identify security issues, build higher quality, more useful online services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of the SCNC users, and measure demographics and interests in connection with specific areas of the website.
We use a combination of multiple firewalls and multiple levels of physical security to protect the Personal Information you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. We encrypt your password when it is submitted to us in order to protect the Personal Information you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. However, you should know that no organization can fully eliminate security or other risks associated with the possession of Personal Information. For example, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login information and password.
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
HIPAA protects the records of our patients who are billed for our services. It does not apply to records of students who access the services at the SCNC included with their tuition. Those are protected by a separate statute, the Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA), just like Student Health records. Be assured the SCNC takes its confidentiality obligations very seriously for all records.
