NHIA Website Disclaimer

The information on this website is intended for general information purposes only. While we make every effort to update information, readers should  rely upon the primary sources of information on the websites of CMS, the FDA, the DME MACs and other government agencies for current and comprehensive information on issues relating to Medicare, FDA guidelines and other governmental guidelines.  The information on this website is not intended to be legal advice or a legal opinion on any specific facts or circumstances, and we recommend that you consult your attorney for legal advice.

Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting NHIA.org, the website for the National Home Infusion Association (“NHIA”).  This privacy policy describes the personal information that we collect from you when you visit our website and how we use that information.  Please read this policy before using the site or submitting any personal or company information.  By using this site, you are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy.

Either directly or through third-party vendors, we collect personal information that you provide when you register or fill out forms online or in the Member Portal or use other features of the site that include voluntary submission of personal information.  You may visit the site without providing such information.  However, you will not be able to use some features of the site unless you voluntarily provide the requested personal information.

What kinds of personal information do we collect?

The information we collect may include your name, your company’s name, employee names, addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses.  All of this information is voluntarily submitted by you on your own behalf or on behalf of another.  You do not have to provide personal information online in order to use our website or to become a member of NHIA.

We may also collect aggregate information about overall use of the site.  For example, we may collect information about the amount of time that users spend on the site and the pages that are viewed.  This information does not identify you as an individual.  NHIA may also use tools to automatically collect information about your computer hardware and software, which may include your IP address, browser type, domain names and other information.

Our website provides members, prospective members, members of the public and donors various ways to interact with NHIA.  For example, you may use our website to:

  • Download a Membership Application.
  • Donate to NHIA.
  • Find a Member home infusion provider in your area by entering your zip code.

Some links and functionalities on the website connect you to third-party portals or websites.  These include: a plugin through which you can sign up for NHIA updates; the Member Portal; local providers search; and donations.  We do not control the privacy practices of third-party portals or links.  We encourage you to review the privacy policies and terms of use of other websites that you access online from our website.

How do we use the information we collect?

We use personal information that you submit to respond to the reason that you provided the information – generally, to provide you with information regarding NHIA, its Members and other content.  We may use your information to personalize your website experience and to deliver content and product and service offerings, which may include third-party content, relevant to your interests, through our website, third-party sites, and via email or text message if you have provided that information to us.  You have the right to opt out of receiving such information and offers.

We also use personal information to operate the features of the website and to comply with legal requirements.

How do we protect personal information?

We use a variety of security measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access or disclosure.  When you submit personal information online, the information is automatically encrypted using a software technology called Transport Layer Security (TSL).  To the extent that NHIA stores information from the website, it stores all personal information in a secured network.  Purchases are processed through a separate, encrypted website that is linked to ours.  In addition, the Member Portal function, which is operated by a third party, utilizes 2048 Bit encrypted SSLs in data transmission. However, no method of protecting information sent over the Internet is perfect, and so we cannot guarantee that your information is absolutely secure.

Do we disclose personal information to other parties?

We do not sell or share your information with third parties for their marketing purposes.  We may, however, use information that you submit to us to disseminate information and offers on behalf of third parties.  We may also disclose information when necessary to respond to complaints or to comply with legal requirements.

Do we collect personal information about children?

This website is not directed to children, and we do not knowingly collect any personal information about children.
