Sensitive Data“Sensitive Data” means personal information about an individual’s race or ethnicity; political, religious, ideological or trade union memberships, opinions, views or activities; medical conditions or other protected health information (“PHI”) as defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”); financial information (e.g. account number); sexuality; or administrative or criminal proceedings that are treated outside pending proceedings.  In addition, Sensitive Data includes information we receive from a third party who treats and identifies the information as sensitive.

  1. Notice:  We do not collect your personal information to operate and maintain our service,.  We use non-personally identifiable data, cookies, clear gifs, and log file information to: (a) monitor the effectiveness of our Service and the offerings of our partners; (b) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns; (c) diagnose or fix technology problems; (d) and allow our business partners to deliver offers to you as described below.

If we collect your Personal Data for any other reason, we will notify you before using or disclosing that data, stating our purpose for collecting and using the data, the types of third parties to which we disclose the data, and the means we offer you to limit the use and disclosure of the data. If we receive Personal Data from any entity in the EU, we will use that data according to the instructions such entity gives us regarding notices it provided and the choices made by the individuals to whom such data relates.

What happens in the event of a change of control:  We may buy or sell/divest/transfer the company (including any shares in the company), or any combination of its products, services, assets and/or businesses. Your information such as aggregate behavioral data and other user information related to the Service may be among the items sold or otherwise transferred in these types of transactions. We may also sell, assign, or otherwise transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies, dissolutions, reorganizations, liquidations, similar transactions, or proceedings involving all or a portion of the company. In the event of any such change in control, all rights and obligations expressed in this Privacy Policy will also be transferred to any acquiring entity.   

For circumstances in which we are subject to the provisions of HIPAA, we are required to provide you with notice of our duties and practices with respect to PHI. Under HIPAA, we may use and disclose your PHI for one or more of the following purposes:   To help run our organization (e.g. we may use your PHI to conduct quality assessments of the services we have provided to you—however, note that we are prohibited from using or disclosing PHI that is genetic information about you for underwriting purposes); or  for purposes as required to administer your insurance and/or assistance service/product

We may also in some specific cases need to use or disclose your PHI for one or more of the following purposes: 
(1)    for public health and safety issues; 
(2)    to comply with legal or regulatory requirements; 
(3)    to address or comply with workers’ compensation, law enforcement, or other governmental mandates or requests; or 
(4)    to respond to lawsuits or legal actions. 

In cases where we are subject to HIPAA, uses and disclosures of your PHI not described above will be made only with your express authorization. 

Choice.  Except as required by law, we do not share, sell or otherwise disclose your Personal Data to third parties, nor do we use it for any purpose other than for which it was originally collected or as you subsequently authorize.  However, if ever we wish to do so, we will offer you the opportunity to choose not to permit us to use your Personal Data (“opt-out”) by sending an appropriately detailed request to the address provided below.  In the event that we wish to disclose your Sensitive Data to a third party or use such data for a purpose other than for which it was originally collected or as you subsequently authorize, we will provide you the affirmative, explicit choice of whether you wish to permit such disclosure (“opt-in”).  Moreover, except as authorized by law, we will not use or disclose psychotherapy notes, use or disclose your PHI for marketing purposes, or use or disclose your PHI in a way that would constitute a sale of PHI under HIPAA unless you expressly authorize us to do so. You may revoke this authorization at any time, except that such revocation will not be effective as to actions we have already taken in reliance on that authorization. 

You may request restrictions on our use and disclosure of certain health information for treatment, payment, or our operations.  However, we are not required to agree to your request, except as otherwise required by HIPAA. 

Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy, we may need to disclose Personal Data or Sensitive Data if we have a good-faith belief that it is necessary to (a) protect or defend our or your rights, interests or property; or (b) comply with any applicable law, regulation, judicial rule or order, or other mandate.  In any such case, we will take reasonable care to disclose only as much Personal Data as is necessary. 

  1. Onward Transfer.  We may disclose your Personal Data, but only for the above-stated purposes.  We will take reasonable steps to obtain assurances and will safeguard your Personal Data consistent with this Policy.  Upon discovery, we will take reasonable steps to stop the disclosure of Personal Data that is contrary to this Policy.

  2. Security.  We take reasonable precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.  To help maintain the security of your data, we employ physical, electronic and procedural safeguards, including utilizing policies to take reasonable precautions to (a) securely and confidentially maintain your Personal Data; (b) assess and protect against threats/hazards to the security or integrity of such data; and (c) prevent unauthorized access to or use of such data.  To make your online transaction with us as safe and secure as possible, we use advanced encryption technology and treat your credit card information and other Personal Data with the highest standard of confidentiality and safety.  We are required by law to maintain the privacy and security of your PHI.  In the unlikely event of a “breach,” as defined in HIPAA § 164.402, of your unsecured PHI, we are required by law to provide you with notification of that breach.

  3. Data IntegrityTo help maintain the integrity of your data, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Data is reliable for its intended use, relevant, accurate, complete and current.

  4. Access.  If you discover that the data we hold about you is inaccurate or incomplete, please let us know by contacting us by the means indicated below.  We will grant you reasonable access to the Personal Data we hold about you and will take reasonable steps to allow you to correct, amend or delete your Personal Data that you show to be inaccurate or incomplete, so long as it can be done without imposing an undue burden or expense on us.  

Where we are subject to HIPAA, you have the right to request to receive confidential communications of your PHI, as applicable.  Subject to HIPAA, at your request, you may inspect, amend and copy PHI we maintain about you, and receive an accounting of certain disclosures of your PHI (e.g. health payment records), in accordance with and as permitted by HIPAA. 

  1. Enforcement.  Any complaint or dispute about how we handle your Personal Data should be directed to the address provided below.  Additionally, complaints about how we handle your PHI may be directed to us or to the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services.  We will investigate and attempt to resolve any such complaints or disputes internally; however, if we are unable to reach a mutually satisfactory resolution for such complaint or dispute, we have agreed to participate in the dispute resolution procedures administered by the European Data Protection Authorities’.  You will not be retaliated against in any manner for filing a complaint.
