Email and IP Address Confidentiality -- ALL READ

Posted By: Moderator on 2009-06-19
In Reply to:

It is important that each reader and poster understand the safety of their information on MTStars: 

Email Addresses

Email addresses should never be typed into a post in any way.  The email address you validate to have posting privileges is never given or sold to any individual, group, company or association. 

You may receive emails to that address from others using the Reply By Email option on one of your posts.  If you receive an email through the MTStars board, it will provide the URL to the post it is referencing.  Your email address is still not exposed at this point.  The person sending an email does not see your email address but has simply filled in an online form to send you the email.  If you choose to reply to the email sent to you, then you have actively chosen to expose your email address to the person emailing you. 

MTStars does not recommend that you respond to any unsolicited email unless you are certain of the validity of the sender.  Anyone can send you an email through the Reply By Email option on any post you make.  It will go to the email address you used to validate that post.

IP Addresses

Your IP address is private and confidential.  It is never given or sold to any individual, group, company or association. 

Depending on the email agent you use, if you respond to an email sent to you (or if you send an email to someone outside of the MTStars board at any time), your IP address may be traceable through your email. 

Can companies or individuals find out your identity? 

Yes.  Not through exposure of your information (email or IP address) but through recognizing situations you describe or other information provided by you when you post.  It is deductive reasoning.  If YOU provide enough information, you may be effectively “signing” your post.  This is true on any board, whether open publicly or not.  Even private boards cannot guarantee who their membership really is. 

Do companies and associations read MTStars?

Yes.  Anyone can read MTStars.  Information posted is searchable on the Internet.  Even a private board can be read by anyone who registers as a member. 

Making claims that MTStars provides, gives, exposes or sells your email address or IP address is a libelous claim and will not be tolerated. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Administrator or Moderator directly.

This is the confidentiality clause on email I receive

This email message may contain legally privileged and/or confidential information. If you are not the intended recipient(s), or the employee or agent responsible for the delivery of this message to the intended recipient(s), you are hereby notified that any disclosure, copying, distribution, or use of this email message is prohibited. If you have received this message in error, please notify the sender immediately by e-mail and delete this email message from your computer. Thank you.

The way I translate that whole paragraph is:
I am the intended recipient. The rest of the paragraph does not apply.

However, if I were NOT the intended recipient, THEN I am hereby notified regarding disclosure, copying, distribution, blah blah blah blah.

Go prove your case and get what is owed to you.

Good luck.
I am reposting email address, not sure why you cannot email me. nm
Is there an email address to
I have her number and have left a message, just wanted to followup with an email. TIA.
You had your email address in and (sm)
the proper place for your type of ad is the job board in the resume section.
Looking for email address
I worked for a lady by the name of Lisa Thelen.  She owns Mediscript Transcription.  I have changed ISPs and I am in need of her email address.  Any help on finding this would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks
? their email address
Do you have their email address. The contact link on their site is not working.
email address TRS...
Does anyone know the email address for human resources at Transcription Relief Services? 
No, that's MDI-MD...email address is same as my MDI email address
They're apparently just hiring for Radiology, though. Fatcat is correct about them not hiring for acute care or clinic at this time, as far as I know.

If you do radiology transcription, I'd strongly suggest applying. Great place to work.

leave email address
what is your email?
Could be anybody based on the email address.
Email address enclosed. nm
How is this better? I do not want to send my email address to anyone as sm
I end up on some strange lists when I do but I really am interested in Keystrokes. I have heard good things and bad and have weighed it out but this kind of cryptic message intrigues me. I just know that whatever happens, I am happy to go with a company that does not outsource and is very open about being against it. I have been burned by two hospitals and two services with offshore transcription.
I would except you left no email address.
your email address did not work nm
email address workatrapid@aol

Can anyone give me information regarding this company? I applied to them over the internet and heard from them and now cannot find an official site for them because I am not sure of the actual company name even though I've googled.

Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

Does it concern you that everyone will have your email address?
MDI-MD. Can someone please give me their email address. Thank you. nm
also .. .t hat is not someone's personal email address
It is the carrier, i.e. just like Yahoo, aol, or hotmail.


4 dif people with same email address

... that keeps kicking back as undeliverable?  Aren't you just a little bit suspicious?

Please, it's probably some shady and incompetent offshore MTSO replying to you as 4 different names to try and get your transcription work and they spoofed the headers to make it look to you like they are inside the USA, so that's why replying to the emails doesn't work.  Forget these 4 candidates for jobs because they don't exist.

Anyone can make up an email address.
If someone knew the OP's email address and made their own account to make it look identical, it would be a valid email account.  If OP's email was maryjones12222@hotmail.com, anyone could make an email account as maryjones1222@hotmail.com or maryjone12222@hotmail.com.  It would be a valid account, but it wouldn't be the OP's account.  It doesn't mean it would be undeliverable. 
That email address did not work?

Could you email me and let me know what the email address was that you used to send your resume to.


Leave an email address, and will reply
Your email address is invalid. You'll need to use another one if you want help. nm
Spheris recuriter email address/#?
I am looking for possible employment at Spheris.  I went to the website and applied, but it stated that they had my application on file already.  I had applied over 2 years ago and never took the position.  I would love for someone to help answer a few questions and provide me with some contact information - and I would be happy to provide your name as a referral!   Thank you!
more info? I tried to leave my email address but could not..sm
Your new company sounds exciting and I am looking for a new job, either part-time or full time as my current job is not offering me enough work. I wonder if you would be kind enough to give me some details? I understood you are doing radiology. I would prefer op notes. Do you know if there are still openings and if they offer clinic or op or acute care? I have 30 years experience in all the above and more. Thanks for any help you can offer and good luck to you!
Could you possibly email me at my address listed above..sm
and tell me on average how many lines you can do in an hour? I know there are a lot of variables to consider but it would give me some idea of what I might expect too. I have 28 years experience and consider myself quite good, but I know sometimes the software, demographics, etc. can slow you down. Also, is there a lot of work on the accounts? I like to do about 2000 lines a day. Thank you for taking the time to help me.
Sure, be happy to, but I see no email address? Am I missing it? nm
I would leave email address for better answers. Co
Hi! Can you post your email address please? Thanks for responding. :) nm

Nobody can make up an alternative email address for her!
An alternative email address can only be made up by the account holder himself.
Leave email address, make one up, hotmail, etc.
leave an email address for candid response
no message
Anyone have the email address/website info for Medigraphix
It gives you a screen so you can insert your resume and email address.
Who in the world would give you any info other than an email address?
With most of the flaky ads, no one knows who they are applying to, or what will be done with their info.  Their is no way I would give you my address or phone number, unless I know you are a real company, with a website and and and address and a phone number of your own.  Most ads do not even include this, and there is no way I am giving you my private info, other than an anonymous email address.
if only a punctuation mark in an email address is wrong,
the email cannot be delivered to the inbox It has to be 'exactly' the same email address, exactly to the smallest detail.

Fishy, fishy....

Well I just re-sent my resume to the corrected email address he gave.
I just got it back saying it is undeliverable. Makes me wonder what type of company this is if they can't get their email straight.
Is there an email address I can email them at. nm
sorry dont give out my email address but happy to answer questions here

Cheryl Flanders posts her email address publicly on several forums...sm
Like I said, you can find Cheryl's email address on *** on her website, CherylFlanders.com. ****
Sine you have access to the address book in Outlook just send the email to the entire team?
I don't either. I read the email carefully.
Read your email memos.
In October, notification was sent that Circle Trust was no longer the custodian. It's MG Trust Company now. They sent a link out that works fine, and a telephone number too. I'd contact HR if you can't find your email.
I got this email and not sure what to make of it....please read

Would anyone who gets an email like this go for this job?  Has anyone else gotten anything like this recently?  Is it a bit unusual?  Opinions please.  Here is a copy of the body of the email letter.

Best Regards,

HOW the heck did you read that email??sm

I swear, some people have issues with comprehension or they read words that are not there.  That email said NOTHING about firing people.  Goodness Gracious....or maybe YOU are worried because you are one who is NOT maintaining your line counts???? uggg....some people on this board.

If you read the email she sent about 2 weeks ago - more work by 01/23/06. nm
Yes, that is the way I read the email. MORE than adequate compensation
That's why you sign a confidentiality
to this information?  I've had access to this information since I started MT in 1981.  I also have transcribed reports on lots of public figures, celebrities, professional sports players, radio and TV personalities, etc.  I have access to their phone numbers, birthdates, social security numbers and address as well as their diagnoses, etc.  What you see/hear/transcribe goes no further than YOU.  You are a part of the health care team.  The doctors and nurses have access to this information.  The unit clerks have access to it.  The coders and file clerks have access to it.  There are lots of people with access to the information.  They just all know it is confidential patient information and is to be used only in the peformance of their job.  If you were a criminal and used that information to steal the patient's identity, you would no longer have a job, nor would you EVER have a job in the medical field again.
I don't think that is violating confidentiality. It is not like...
you would be publicly posting the e-mails, but they would be sent to an agency that routinely deals with these kinds of disputes and regularly sees confidential information as a necessary part of their operation. Any information your employer provides them would also likely have the confidentiality clause on it, so I don't think they could prevent you from using the same.

Should've read my email sooner, they did invite me to finish the test -sm
Mine did have 4 dictations. None of them were ESL, though they were a little more difficult than most tests I've taken.
Of course it is a breach of the confidentiality agreement.
But what can you do about it? Absolutely nothing. We have no way of knowing the identities of these individuals. There is no way to enforce it, especially when most of the MTs work from home. It would be a totally different scenario if two MTs work at the company and are overheard discussing matters that should not be discussed. All the MTSOs can do is to maintain our company standards and follow them to the letter, i.e. x amount per line based on x number years of experience and try not to deviate from it.
