Except as otherwise specified herein, Legwork may make any and all uses of PHI necessary to perform its obligations and exercise its legal rights under the Agreements. All other uses not authorized by the Agreements are prohibited. Legwork may use or disclose PHI to the full extent permitted by the HIPAA Rules.
6.2 Legwork’s obligations as a Business Associate. To the extent Legwork is determined to be a “Business Associate” as defined by HIPAA Rules, it agrees to:
6.2.1 Not use or disclose PHI other than as permitted or required by the agreement or required by law;
6.2.2 Use appropriate safeguards to prevent use or disclosure of PHI other than as provided for by the Agreement;
6.2.3 Report to you any use or disclosure of PHI not provided for by the Agreement of which it becomes aware;
6.2.4 Ensure that any subcontractors that create, receive, maintain, or transmit protected health information on behalf of Legwork agree to the same restrictions, conditions, and requirements that apply to Legwork with respect to such information;
6.2.5 Make available PHI in a designated record set to you as necessary to satisfy your obligations under HIPAA Rules;
6.2.6 Make any amendment(s) to PHI in a designated record set if directed by you;
6.2.7 Maintain and make available to you the information required to provide an accounting of disclosures; and
6.2.8 Make its internal practices, books, and records available to the Secretary for purposes of determining compliance with the HIPAA Rules.
6.3 Your Obligations as a Covered Entity. You acknowledge that you are a “covered entity” within the HIPAA Rules. You also acknowledge that Legwork is relying on your promises as set forth in this section. Thus, you agree to:

6.3.5 That you shall not request Legwork to use or disclose PHI in any manner that would not be permissible under HIPAA Rules if done by you.
6.4 Legwork’s Retention of PHI After Termination. Upon termination of one or more of the Agreements for any reason, Legwork, with respect to PHI received from you, shall:
6.4.1 Retain only that protected health information which is necessary for Legwork to continue its proper management and administration or to carry out its legal responsibilities;

6.4.5 Return to you the PHI retained by Legwork when it is no longer needed by Legwork for its management and administration or to carry out its legal responsibilities.
Section 7. TCPA Obligations
7.1 The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) is a federal law that protects consumer from unwanted solicitation by telephone, fax, and text message. The TCPA prohibits using an “Automatic Telephone Dialing System” to contact a consumer without consent.
7.2 Your Obligations Under TCPA. You are subject to the restrictions of TCPA when you contact your patients. As such, you agree to:
7.2.1 Before sending any marketing-related message, obtain express written consent from each patient receiving the marketing message that the patient consents to receive text messages related to your goods and services from an automated system.
7.2.2 Honor patient requests to opt-out of future telephone, fax, and text message communications. Legwork software provides you the ability to honor these requests.
7.2.3 Not send any messages beyond the scope of the consent you receive from your patients. Messages unrelated to your products and services will exceed this scope and potentially subject you to liability under TCPA or other relevant laws.
7.3 Informational messages. While you are subject to TCPA whenever you use Legwork’s software to contact your patients, when you use the software to contact patients with informational messages (such as appointment reminders), consent to receive such messages does not need to be in writing. It may be verbal, electronic, or written. However, it is strongly recommended that you obtain consent in either electronic or written form before contacting patients. In the unlikely event that your patient brings suit alleging a violation of TCPA, it will be your responsibility to prove that your patient consented to informational messages.
Section 8. CAN-SPAM Obligations
8.1 The CAN-SPAM act sets out the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have you stop emailing them, and provides penalties for violations.
8.2 Your Obligations Under CAN-SPAM. You are subject to the restrictions of CAN-SPAM when you contact patients using email to promote a product or service. As such, if you use Legwork software to distribute a marketing message, you agree to follow the rules of CAN-SPAM, including without limitation, to:
8.2.1 Not use false or misleading header information in emails.
8.2.2 Not use deceptive subject lines in emails.
8.2.3 Identify the email message as an advertisement.
8.2.4 Include your valid physical postal address in all marketing emails.
8.2.5 Tell recipients how to opt out of receiving future email from you.
8.2.6 Honor opt-out requests promptly.
8.2.7 Monitor what others are doing on your behalf. If you have another company handling your email marketing, you are still liable for what they send out on your behalf.
