Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

Protection of Patient Data
In the case of Personal Health Information (PHI), data are processed on behalf of a Covered Entity under a Business Associate Agreement. Consent for the collection and processing of personal data for a given purpose shall be attested to when completing the appropriate form published on MedCAD’s website.
MedCAD adheres to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 (HITECH). MedCAD explicitly does not sell PHI for any reason.

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:
- See what data we have about you, if any.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
