Right to Access and Correct Personal Information
PHI strives to make sure that our information is reliable, accurate, and up-to-date.

Upon request made to the contact listed below under the section titled “Contact Information,” PHI will provide you with reasonable access to the Personal Information we have collected from you. Because Personal information—for example, your email address—is required to use the Site, we retain certain Personal Information while your account is active.
You will have the opportunity to correct, transfer, update, modify, or delete this information by logging into your account and updating your Personal Information online or contacting PHI at the address listed below under the section titled “Contact Information.” You may also limit the use and disclosure of your Personal Information by either unsubscribing from marketing communications or contacting PHI at the address listed below under the section titled “Contact Information.” Please note that some information may remain in PHI’s records even after you request deletion of your Personal Information, to the extent or required by applicable laws. Additionally, there may be limits to the amount of information PHI can practically provide. For example, we may limit access to Personal Information where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to an individual's privacy or where doing so would violate others’ rights.
Regardless of the above, however, and except as required by applicable law, PHI does not provide you with access to patient records and will recommend that you directly contact your healthcare provider to obtain a copy of your patient records.
