We may revise the information on the website or otherwise change or update the website, including the terms and conditions, without notice to you.

Links
The BusinessNet website may provide links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by Kaiser Permanente ("third-party websites"). We provide links to third-party websites as follows.

  • Kaiser Permanente provides links to third-party websites to connect you easily to additional sources of information or third-party services that may be of interest to you.

  • Kaiser Permanente also provides links to third-party websites managed by vendors that we have made arrangements with to offer you certain products or services. These third-party websites may be cobranded, meaning that they may display the Kaiser Permanente logo and the logo of the third-party vendor, but they are owned and controlled by the third party.

Kaiser Permanente is not responsible for the content, security, or the privacy practices of third-party websites.
