Your consent to this policy
You may refuse or withdraw your consent for us to collect, use or disclose your Personal Data by giving us reasonable notice. This can be done at any time by emailing email@example.com (as long as there are no legal or operational restrictions preventing you from doing so). It is important to note that in the event you do withdraw consent, we will be unable to collect, use, or disclose your Personal Data meaning that you will no longer be able to use the Services.
What personal data are collected
We will store data we collect from you through the account registration process, such as name, age, ethnicity, occupation, gender, height, weight, address and lifestyle habits (and any other data you or others post on the Care Platforms through the use of the Services) (the “Personal Data”). We may also collect your Personal Data if you report a problem with the Care Platforms or if you contact us for any reason.
Care does not use, disclose or collect sensitive personal information (such as religion, political afﬁliations or medical information) without your consent. Care keeps track of the Care Platforms and pages our users visit within the Care Platforms, in order to determine what Services are the most popular. This data may be used to deliver customized content and advertising within the Care Platforms to users whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
If you have provided Personal Data to Care, you can request access to it at any time, as well as request to know how it is being used and disclosed for the last 12 months. In order to facilitate this access, you may be charged an administrative fee. You also have the right to request correction to your Personal Data.
What we use your data for
The primary reason we collect Personal Data is to enable users and Providers to conduct Consultations through the Services and to enable the content-related functions of the Care Platforms. In order to facilitate this service we will need to share your personal data with the healthcare provider who you have chosen or connected with. Your data will only be shared with that individual and only for the purposes of providing the service that you have requested.
We may use your Personal Data for account and Care Platforms maintenance, marketing, billing purposes and user proﬁling. We use and disclose Personal Data relating to payment methods and details to the extent required to process fees for completed Consultations, monthly subscriptions and other transactions.
We may use your Personal Data to contact you in respect of the Services. We will send emails to the email addresses provided by you and we will be making calls on the phone numbers provided by you if required. If you have provided an incorrect email address or phone number (or if these details have been changed without notice to us), then you may not receive these communications. Care will not be responsible for any breach of privacy due to correspondence going to an incorrect address or phone number. We may also use your Personal Data to contact you to perform surveys about your opinion of Care or the Services, or of potential new Services that may be offered. By using the Care platform, you consent to your Personal Data being used by Care for such communications. Should you no longer wish to be contacted, you may opt out of receiving these communications on your profile.
We may collect information about your computer, including your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers and to generate insights. We may use information about member statistics, traffic patterns for the purposes of our business activities, including sales, marketing, mergers, acquisitions and bankruptcies.
Generally, Care does not sell, rent or lease its user lists to third parties. Care may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In addition, Care may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide user support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Care, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
We may disclose your personal information if we are under a duty to disclose or share such data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Care, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
We may aggregate personal and other data captured through the Care Platforms and the Services so that the data is no longer capable of identifying any individual. Aggregated data may cover patterns of usage relating to the Care Platforms and its Services and Care reserves the right to use this aggregated information for the purposes of improving and enhancing its Services, developing and selling data and information to third parties, generating and commercializing insights and otherwise for the purposes of our business.
You may opt to integrate Care with Apple’s Health App Database.
