Effective July 5, 2016 Version 1.1
We do not require you to submit any more information than is necessary to use the Services effectively. We may collect the following three categories of information from you: (a) Personally Identifiable Information (PII); (b) Non-Personal Information; and (c) Passive Anonymous Information. All three of these categories are collectively referred to as “Information” in this Policy.
We may receive and store any information you enter through the Services that is intended to allow us or third parties to identify you personally, contact you or identify other individuals. This information is referred to as PII. The PII you provide to us only will be used by HealthSlate in accordance with this Policy. Examples of PII we may collect from you: • Your first and last name, email address, postal address, user name, or telephone number; • PII you provide about yourself or others when you send us an e-mail, contact support or otherwise communicate with us. Sometimes HealthSlate will aggregate and/or anonymize PII so that it becomes non-personal information and is not intended to be used to personally identify you.
From time to time, we may also ask you to provide us with non-personal information which is data that alone is not intended to allow us to identify you personally, such as just your first name or zip code. We may also collect information that you choose to provide concerning specific health indicators, such as blood pressure readings; however, such information is not linked with or otherwise associated with PII.
We and our third party partners may automatically collect certain types of passive, anonymous information whenever you use the Services, such as information about your device, your computer, and online activities. For instance, we may automatically collect Services usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of users of the Services, pages visited and similar data. This data is used in the aggregate, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that HealthSlate intends to use to identify you personally. If we collect this information, it will be done passively through the use of certain electronic technologies, such as cookies, web beacons, pixels, clear GIFs (and similar technologies) and location information from your wireless equipment.
As part of the Services, third parties, including physicians, health clinics and health educators (collectively, “Covered Entities”) may share with HealthSlate certain patient information, including protected health information, as that term is defined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This information is collected by the Covered Entities and subject to any privacy notice provided by the Covered Entities to the user. HealthSlate does not collect this information but has access to it as part of the services it provides to Covered Entities and is obligated to protect such information pursuant to HIPAA. Any other information that HealthSlate receives about a user from a third party is subject to that third parties’ privacy notice and practices.
We may use your Information for a number of purposes, including:
The privacy and confidentiality of your Information is important to HealthSlate. We only share your Information with third parties if we have your permission or under the following circumstances.
Service Providers. We may share Information with third parties who perform services on our behalf. These third party service providers are contractually required or bound by law to protect your PII and only are permitted to use it in accordance with the terms of our service agreements with them.
Passive Anonymous and Aggregated Non-Personal Information. You agree that we may share with third parties passive, anonymous and non-personal information about you that is aggregated and is not intended to allow these third parties to identify you. This non-personal information is usually obtained through the use of electronic technologies as described in Section II.C. above. HealthSlate does not share your PII with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you have provided explicit permission to do so.
HealthSlate does not collect, store or otherwise maintain any financial information, including credit, debit or similar information from individuals who purchase any products or services through the Services. Financial information is collected by a trusted third party, who processes the credit, debit or ACH transaction.
HealthSlate allows you to change or correct inaccuracies in your PII by contacting us.
The Services may contain links to third-party websites or applications. Please be aware that HealthSlate cannot control and is not responsible for the information collection practices of such websites or applications, which may differ from those of HealthSlate. We encourage you to review and understand the privacy policies and terms and conditions of these web sites applications before providing any information to them.
If you sign up to receive email newsletters or other marketing communications from HealthSlate and no longer wish to receive such correspondence, you may follow the instructions in each email on how to unsubscribe or by sending an email with your unsubscribe request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Service is not intended for persons under the age of 13. HealthSlate does not knowingly market to, or solicit information, accept service or collect information from any person under the age of 13. If HealthSlate becomes aware that any person submitting information to the Services is under the age of 13, we will attempt to delete the account and any related information as soon as possible. We require that only persons 13 years of age or older use the Services. By using the Services, you hereby represent that you are at least 13 years old. Any ratings for Services provided by a third party shall have no bearing on this limitation.
We may occasionally update this Policy to reflect changes in our practices. When we post changes to this Policy, we will revise the updated date and version number at the top of this Policy. If we make any material changes to our Policy, we will notify you by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address(s) you provided to us, and by prominently posting notice of the changes on or through the Services. We will give you an opportunity to opt-out of any materially changed Policy or alternatively, delete the information you have provided to us. We recommend that you check the Services from time to time to inform yourself of any changes in this Policy or any of our other policies. Any non-material changes to the Policy will not be sent to you via email; a notice of such non-material changes will be posted on or through the Services.
