When do we combine anonymous and personally identifiable information and howdo we use it?
If you provide personally identifiable information on our website, we may combine that information with our anonymous information to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you.

When do we disclose or provide information to third parties?
We may share anonymous or personally identifiable information with our third-party service providers in order for them to perform their services for us.
We will not disclose your personally identifiable information to any unaffiliated third party unless we have your permission or when we need to treat the information collected through this website as an asset in the event of the merger or sale of Orlando Health, or a portion of our business.
We may disclose any anonymous or personally identifiable information to the extent we believe the disclosure to be required by law. We may also disclose anonymous or personally identifiable information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against a third party who may be violating our terms and conditions governing the use of the Digital Platform, or who may be (intentionally or unintentionally) causing injury to or interference with your rights or property, or our rights or property or those of a third party.

How do you access your child’s health record online via MyChart?
There are multiple ways for you to gain proxy access to your child's Orlando Health MyChart account.
- Option 1: If your child is 12 years of age or older and they have their own Orlando Health MyChart account, they can grant you access from within "Friends and Family Access".
- Option 2: During the next visit for your child, you can sign the Proxy Authorization form and the team member will grant you proxy access.
- Option 3: You can download the Proxy Authorization form and send the completed form and photo identification to [email protected]
Can I view a family member's health record in Orlando Health MyChart?
Yes, you can. This is called proxy access and allows a patient to log in to their personal Orlando Health MyChart account and then grant access to a family member. To do this, the patient needs to log into their Orlando Health MyChart account and search for “Share My Record.” From there they will select “Friends and Family Access” to add you. A second way to get proxy access is for a patient and family member to complete a Proxy Authorization form and return it to one of our medical facilities

How will we resolve our disputes (informally)?
We hope we never have a dispute, but if we do, you and we agree to try for 60 days to resolve it informally. If you have a dispute, send a Notice of Dispute by U.S. Mail to:
1414 Kuhl Avenue MP29
Orlando, FL 32806
Tell us your name, address, how to contact you, what the problem is and how you’d like it resolved. We’ll do the same if we have a dispute with you. After 60 days, you or we may initiate an arbitration if the dispute is unresolved.
How will we resolve our disputes (if not by agreement)?
You agree to arbitrate all disputes on an individual (non-class) basis. Arbitration means the case will be decided by a private arbitrator. There will be no judge and no jury. The arbitrator’s decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal.
The arbitrator will be the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). AAA will apply its Consumer Arbitration Rules. However, should AAA be unable or unwilling to arbitrate the case, a court may appoint an arbitrator under the Federal Arbitration Act.
The arbitrator will hear the arbitration on an individual basis. There will be no class arbitrations, no class actions, no joinder of arbitrations (without our agreement), no private attorney general actions and no actions where one party represents other absent parties. The arbitrator may award the same damages to you individually as a court could. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only to you individually to satisfy your individual claim.
