Certain of our webpages may permit you to create a user account and login to that account. The information in this section applies to those webpages:
Viewing/Editing Personal Information: You may change the information you have provided by logging into your account and editing the information. If you are the patient, your personal information will be viewable by all persons you have invited and registered on your account (e.g., Friends and Family Members). If you are registered on a patient’s account, your personal information will be viewable by the patient as well as others registered on that account.
Protecting Personal Information: We take security seriously and take a number of steps to protect your personal information. You also play a big part in protecting the privacy of your personal information. When you create an account, we ask you to select a password that is unique to you. To protect your personal information from unwanted disclosure, you should not give your password to anyone with whom you would not share your personal information. Our website may also log you out after a period of inactivity and require you to log in again. When you are ready to leave this website, always “log off” and close your browser to help protect the confidentiality of your information.
Use of Personal Information. Given the scope and variety of ECB online services that allow the creation of online user accounts, ECB will use your personal information for purposes related to the nature of the account and to why the account was established. These uses could include but are not limited to: (1) account creation, management, and security; (2) password restoration and renewal; and (3) account usage. Your use of any such accounts, and ECB’s ability to use your personal information, is additionally subject to the terms and conditions accessible through the account login page.
We may contact you periodically by email, mail, telephone, or text if you agree to that contact to provide information regarding programs, products, services and content that may be of interest to you. In addition, some of the features on this website allow you to communicate with us using an online form. If your communication requests a response from us, we will send you a response via email. The email response or confirmation may include your personal information, including personal information about your health, your name, address, etc.
We care about protecting the online privacy of children. We will not intentionally collect any personal information (such as a child’s name or e-mail address) from children under the age of 18. If you think that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 18, please contact us.
Security is very important to us. We also understand that security is important to you. We have implemented security measures to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. While we have implemented security measures, please keep in mind that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet or elsewhere and no transmission of information is guaranteed to be completely secure. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email.
Supplemental Privacy Notice for California Residents
California law (CalOPPA) requires ECB to let you know how we respond to web browser ‘Do Not Track (DNT) signals’. Because there currently is not an industry or legal standard for recognizing or honoring DNT signals, we do not honor Do Not Track requests at this time.

We obtain the categories of personal information listed above from the following categories of sources:
Use or Disclosure of Personal Information
In the past 12 months, we have used or disclosed the personal information we collect for our operational purposes and for one or more of the following business purposes:
How We Share Personal Information
De-Identification of Protected Health Information
In certain instances, we collect Protected Health Information as defined under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). We may de-identify such information, meaning that you would no longer be identified as a single unique individual. We use the HIPAA Safe Harbor method or the HIPAA Expert Determination method described in 45 C.F.R. § 164.514 to de-identify protected health information regulated under HIPAA. Once we have de-identified information, it is no longer personal information and we may treat it like other non-personal information. We may sell or disclose deidentified patient information consistent with our responsibilities under HIPAA. Entities to whom we disclose de-identified information are prohibited from re-identifying or attempting to re-identify it. Anyone with whom we contract who receives any de-identified data derived from Protected Health Information is prohibited by law from attempting to re-identify that data.
Categories of Personal Information We Sell
We do not sell personal information of California consumers.
This does not include disclosures that are not a “sale” under the CCPA, including when
Personal Information on Minors
We do not sell personal information of California consumers, including minors.
Rights under California Law
Right to non-discrimination. The CCPA grants California consumers the right not to be discriminated against for exercising your privacy rights. If you exercise your privacy rights, we will not discriminate against you, for example, by denying you access to our online services or charging you different rates or prices for the same online services, unless that difference is reasonably related to the value provided by your data.
Submitting a Request or Inquiry
If you are a California resident and you want to submit a request or inquiry to us regarding your California rights, you or your authorized agent can use our contact form or email us at email@example.com. You do not have to create an account with us to submit a request.
Your request will be confirmed within 14 days of receipt and we will respond within 60 days. If we need more than 60 days, we will notify you that your request is being delayed.
We can only respond to your request if it is verifiable. This means we are obligated to take reasonable steps to verify your identity or your authorized agent’s authority and your right to access the information you request. In the process of verifying your request, we may contact you to ask for additional information that will help us do so, including government-issued IDs containing your name and address, utility bills containing that same information, and/or unique identifiers like usernames. We will only use that additional information in the verification process, and not for any other purpose. Once we have received and verified the requested information from you, we will contact you with our response to your request, including any data, if applicable. If we do not hear from you or are unable to verify your identity for the request, we will contact you to inform you that we cannot process your request because we cannot verify your identity.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
