  23. NOTICE REGARDING WELLNESS PROGRAM. Your employer’s wellness program is a voluntary wellness program available to eligible employees. The program is administered according to federal rules permitting employer-sponsored wellness programs that seek to improve employee health or prevent disease, including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, as applicable, among others. If you choose to participate in the wellness program you may be asked to complete a voluntary health risk assessment or “HRA” that asks a series of questions about your health-related activities and behaviors and whether you have or had certain medical conditions (e.g., cancer, diabetes, or heart disease). You may also be asked to complete a biometric screening, which may include a blood test to take various measurements such as cholesterol, glucose and triglyceride levels. You are not required to complete the HRA or to participate in the blood test or other medical examinations.
    1. However, employees who choose to participate in the wellness program may receive various incentives as described by your employer for participating in the wellness program. Further, although you are not required to complete the HRA or participate in the biometric screening, employees who do so may l also receive certain incentives, such as points, level promotion or other similar rewards. Certain questions within the HRA may also be optional, in which case you may complete the HRA without responding to any such optional questions and, if applicable, still qualify to receive any such incentives.
    2. Additional incentives as described by your employer may be available for employees who participate in certain health-related activities, such as walking, exercising or learning about nutrition, or achieve certain health outcomes, such as maintaining a certain BMI or having blood pressure below a certain level. If you are unable to participate in any of the health-related activities or achieve any of the health outcomes required to earn an incentive, you may be entitled to a reasonable accommodation or an alternative standard. You may request a reasonable accommodation or an alternative standard by contacting your employer’s wellness program coordinator.
    3. The information from your HRA and the results from your biometric screening will be used to provide you with information to help you understand your current health and potential risks, and may also be used to offer you services through the wellness program, such as health coaching services or smoking cessation programs. You also are encouraged to share your results or concerns with your own doctor.
  24. Protections from Disclosure of Medical Information. We are required by law to maintain the privacy and security of your personally identifiable health information. Although the wellness program and your employer may use aggregate information it collects to design a program based on identified health risks in the workplace, the wellness program will never disclose any of your personal information either publicly or to your employer, except as necessary to respond to a request from you for a reasonable accommodation needed to participate in the wellness program, or as expressly permitted by law. Medical information that personally identifies you that is provided in connection with the wellness program will not be provided to your supervisors or managers and may never be used to make decisions regarding your employment.
    1. Your health information will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or otherwise disclosed except to the extent permitted by law to carry out specific activities related to the wellness program, and you will not be asked or required to waive the confidentiality of your health information as a condition of participating in the wellness program or receiving an incentive. Anyone who receives your information for purposes of providing you services as part of the wellness program will abide by the same confidentiality requirements. The only individual(s) who will receive your personally identifiable health information is (are) any registered nurse, doctor, or health coach affiliated with the wellness program in order to provide you with services under the wellness program.
    2. In addition, all medical information obtained through the wellness program will be maintained separate from your personnel records, information stored electronically will be encrypted, and no information you provide as part of the wellness program will be used in making any employment decision. Appropriate precautions will be taken to avoid any data breach, and in the event a data breach occurs involving information you provide in connection with the wellness program, we will notify you immediately.
    3. You may not be discriminated against in employment because of the medical information you provide as part of participating in the wellness program, nor may you be subjected to retaliation if you choose not to participate.
    4. If you have questions or concerns regarding this notice, or about protections against discrimination and retaliation, please contact your employer.

We may modify these terms or any additional terms that apply to ADURO Services to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to ADURO Services. You should look at the terms regularly. We’ll post notice of modifications to these terms on this page. We’ll post notice of modified additional terms in the applicable areas of ADURO Services. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than one business day after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you do not agree to the modified terms for the ADURO Services, you should discontinue your use of ADURO Services.

If there is a conflict between these terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will control for that conflict.  These terms control the relationship between ADURO and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights.  If you do not comply with these terms, and we don’t take action right away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).  If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.

If you have any questions or concerns about these Terms of Service, please feel free to contact us.
