I don't understand. They claim our personal information is not shared or sold. So how do they make money? Also , if this company is sold, then the information becomes the property of the acquirer so in that sense your personal information can be bought or sold and eventually wind up in unfriendly hands. What's going on here?

From Element3: "Element3 does not make money by selling members' information or sharing members' information for reasons other than the administration of activity benefits. Health insurance companies pay Element3 Health to administer a health benefit on their behalf. Element3 uses member's health plan ID numbers to confirm with health insurers that members are eligible for this benefit under their health insurance plan."
