Privacy Practices on IntermountainHealthcare.org 

​​

Public Information – This online service (the “Service”)  offers access to information on Intermountain services and facilities, affiliated physicians, and other health-related content to anyone who accepts the Terms of Use. Intermountain Healthcare, through intermountainhealthcare.org, makes this information publicly available without the need for the user to disclose any personally identifiable information.

This online Service also offers you access to your personal clinical and insurance-related information. To access that information, you’ll need to register for those specific services by following the instructions in our Terms of Use in the section called "Terms of Use for Personalized Information."

Intermountain Healthcare offers you this Service on these conditions:

  1. that you are 18 years of age or older;
  2. that you have the right and ability to agree to the Terms of Use;
  3. that you agree to the Terms of Use

This Service is intended for use by adults and, in some cases, teenagers over thirteen. Some areas of this Service may, however, be attractive to children, such as the “LIVE” site and SelectHealth’s STEP Express web pages. Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will never knowingly request personal information from anyone less than 13 years of age without prior verifiable parental consent. If you become aware that your child who is less than 13 years of age has provided us with personal information without prior verifiable parental consent, please contact us at webmaster@imail.org and we will use our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our files.

Proprietary Information – In addition to the publicly available information, intermountainhealthcare.org also provides access to personal health-related information to those who provide the necessary information to make that possible. For example, in the "My Health" section on intermountainhealthcare.org, a user can view his or her personal online health records, provided that they have registered and logged in a user name and password.

System Security – Intermountain has taken reasonable steps and has employed industry-standard practices and technology to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of personally identifiable information; but because even the most secure computer system can be violated, Intermountain cannot guarantee security.  

Third Party ServicesIntermountainhealthcare.org offers the opportunity to apply online for employment with Intermountain. This online employment service is provided through a third party entity ("Peoplefluent") under contract with Intermountain. A statement of Peoplefluent's  privacy practices can be accessed and viewed online:

 

Use of Cookies – Like many sites, intermountainhealthcare.org utilizes "cookies." A cookie is an alphanumeric file that transfers to the user's computer during a session to help improve the Internet experience. intermountainhealthcare.org uses cookies: (1) to keep track of the pages previously selected during the session, in order to enable "Back to Previous Section" capability; (2) to enable general usability statistics that can be used to make the site better; and (3) in situations where users proactively identify themselves (e.g., with a user name and password), cookies help serve up personalized functionality without the need for users to continually re-identify themselves during their session. Cookies are randomly generated, are used only for one session and are then destroyed, and are incapable of identifying the user. Intermountain does not control the use of cookies used or linked by contracted or third party services (such as Peoplefluent). ​​
