The CCW solution is provided with funding from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for use by Quality Improvement Organizations, CMS-approved research projects (including pilots), healthcare reform projects, interagency agreement projects, and/or CMS staff. This User Agreement is designed to tell you about the practices regarding collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may have access to with CCW. Please be sure to read this entire User Agreement. In order to ensure the integrity, security, and confidentiality of information maintained by CCW, and to permit appropriate disclosure and use of such data as permitted by law, the User enters into this Agreement with CCW to comply with the following specific paragraphs. The User represents and warrants further that he/she shall not disclose, release, reveal, show, sell, rent, lease, loan, or otherwise grant access to their Login ID and password to the CCW to any individual(s). The User agrees to notify the CCW Help Desk should they suspect their Login ID and password to be compromised. The User agrees to establish appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the confidentiality of the information accessed through CCW and to prevent unauthorized use or access to it. The User agrees that no findings, files, or information derived from the use of CCW may be released to unauthorized individuals, other than those findings, files or information specifically approved for public dissemination as stated in the official CMS Data Use Agreement between the User and CMS. The User agrees that in the event CCW Security determines or has reasonable belief that the User has made any unauthorized disclosure(s), their access will be revoked. The User acknowledges that criminal, administrative, or civil penalties under the Privacy Act may apply if it is determined that the individual knowingly and willfully released the information under false pretenses. By accepting this agreement, the User agrees to abide by all provisions set out in this Agreement for protection of the data and acknowledges having received notice of potential criminal, administrative, or civil penalties for violation of the terms of the Agreement. In accordance with federal government standards and compliance, Cybersecurity Awareness Training must be completed prior to receiving their Login ID and maintained annually thereafter. In addition, by using the CCW solution, you agree with the terms of the User Agreement. Should a violation of these terms be detected, your account will be immediately frozen with no further access until CMS investigates the violation. If CMS determines a violation of the terms has occurred, it may result in both you and your organization being prohibited from any further access to CMS data.
