5. Privacy Basics. BlueStep encourages its clients, including 4Care, to develop and implement a privacy policy that complies substantially with the fair information practice principles promulgated by the Federal Trade Commission. Here is a brief summary of the core principles that should be included in a comprehensive privacy policy.
The Notice/Awareness principle requires that consumers be given notice of a company's information practices before personal information is collected from them. The scope and content of the notice will vary with a company's substantive information practices, but the notice itself is essential. The Choice/Consent principle requires that consumers be given options with respect to whether and how personal information collected from them may be used. The Access/Participation principle requires that consumers be given reasonable access to information collected about them and the ability to verify and update that data's accuracy and completeness. The Integrity/Security principle requires that companies take reasonable steps to assure that information collected from consumers is accurate and secure from unauthorized use.
For additional information, you can go to http://www.ftc.gov/reports/privacy3/toc.htm and review the FTC document dated June 1998, entitled "Privacy Online: A Report To Congress". This Report includes excellent information regarding the requirements for an effective Privacy Policy.
6. Limited Disclosure Exceptions. BlueStep reserves the right to disclose your personally-identifiable information without your permission or the permission of 4Care in the following limited circumstances: (i) if BlueStep is required to do so by law, or (ii) if BlueStep has the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to applicable laws or comply with legal process served on BlueStep, or to protect and defend the rights or property of BlueStep or another subscriber or to enforce the Acceptable Use Terms and Conditions.
