HIPAA and PHI
Certain personal data that we collect about Consumers when they are using the Services may be deemed “protected health information” (“PHI”) under the United States Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”). PHI is any individually identifiable health information that a healthcare provider or a “Business associate” of your healthcare provider receives about you. Medical information you provide through the Services may be considered PHI. Furthermore, we may receive PHI from or on behalf of your Provider. In this role, we are defined as a “Business associate” under HIPAA. HIPAA provides specific protections for the privacy and security of PHI and restricts how PHI is used and disclosed. We will only use and disclose PHI in the ways permitted by HIPAA or as otherwise authorized by you

We will not deny you services, charge you a different price, provide a different level or quality of services or otherwise discriminate against you just because you exercised any of these rights; however, if you decline to provide your personal data or ask us to delete it or stop disclosing it, we may be unable to provide you with certain services.
Only you, or a person whom you authorize or who otherwise has legal authority to act on your behalf, may make a request related to your personal data. The request must:
- provide sufficient information for us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal data or an authorized representative of such person; and
- describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal data if you do not take the foregoing actions. Making a request does not require you to create an account with us. We will use personal data provided in a request only to verify your identity or authority to make the request.
Access: You may request a copy of the personal data about you that we have collected, used or shared, and why we collected, used or shared that personal data, including the categories of personal data collected, the specific items of personal data collected, the categories of sources from which we collected personal data, the purposes for which we use the personal data, the categories of third parties with whom we share the personal data, and the categories of information that we disclose to third parties.

How Long We Keep Your Personal Data
