4. PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT BY AUTOMATED MEANS

Sites: We collect information about your use of our Sites (IP address, type of computing or mobile device you use, language of your operating system, the Internet browser you are using, geo-location and use of the Sites) through the use of various technologies, such as cookies, web beacons and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, clickstream).

Apps: When you download and install any of our Apps onto a mobile device, we assign a random number to your App installation. We do not use this number to identify you personally unless you choose to become a registered user of the App. We use this random number in a manner similar to our use of cookies as described in this privacy policy. Because the random number is assigned to your installation of the App itself, it cannot be removed through the settings of your App or your device. If you do not want us to use the random number for the purposes for which we use cookies, please do not install our App. Instead, please use your mobile device browser to access our Sites.

A cookie is a small piece of text that is sent to a visitor’s browser. The browser provides this piece of text to the device of the originating visitor when this visitor returns. We use cookies to help personalize your AZOVA experience. A “persistent” cookie may be used to help save your settings and customizations. Also, if you log in to a Site, such a cookie may be used to recognize you as a valid user so you will not need to login each time you use a Site. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but allow you to modify security settings so that you can approve or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis or reject all cookies. You can configure your web browser to remove cookies by following the directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” section.

Also, you are free to delete any existing cookies at any time. If you delete or disable cookies from our Sites, some parts or functions of the Sites may not work properly for you.

Our Sites may use analytics to create statistical reports. These reports would tell us, for example, how many users visited our Sites, what pages have been browsed, and from what geographic regions users visited the Sites. The information collected through the use of analytics may include, for example, your IP address, the website from which you visited us, the type of device you used and your search query that led you to the Sites. Your IP address is masked on our systems and will only be used on a need-to-know basis to resolve technical issues, to administer our Sites and to understand visitor preferences. Traffic information on our Sites is accessed only by authorized personnel. We do not use any of this information to directly identify visitors. We process personal information for these purposes because we have a legitimate interest in understanding how our Sites are used.

5. ADVERTISING

We may use how you browse and shop in order to show you ads for AZOVA or our advertising partners that are more relevant to your interests. We may use cookies and other information to provide relevant interest-based advertising to you. Interest-based ads are ads presented to you based on your browsing behavior in order to provide you with ads more tailored to your interests. These interest-based ads may be presented to you while you are browsing our site or third-party sites not owned by AZOVA. We belong to ad networks that may use your browsing history across participating websites to show you interest-based advertisements on those websites. If your browser sends a “do not track” signal or similar mechanism to indicate you do not wish to be tracked or receive interest-based ads, we will comply with your request. You can opt-out of receiving interest-based ads from us at any time by emailing us at support@azovahealth.com. To learn more about interest-based advertisements and your opt-out rights and options, visit the Digital Advertising Alliance and the Network Advertising Initiative websites (aboutads.info and www.networkadvertising.org). Please note that if you choose to opt out, you will continue to see ads on our Sites, but they will not be based on how you browse and shop.

6. INFORMATION WE SHARE

We do not sell, rent, trade or otherwise disclose personal information visitors submit through our Application, except as described in this privacy policy. We may share your information among AZOVA Inc. related entities for the purposes described in this privacy policy. We also may share the information with our marketing and advertising partners, who may communicate with you about other services, events and topics.

Additionally, we may share your information with service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf (e.g., laboratories, prescription drug providers, and other clinically relevant companies), that help us process orders, and fulfil and deliver products and services that you purchase from or through us. We may use third parties to help host our Application, send out email updates about the Application, remove repetitive information from our user lists, and process payments. These service providers are not authorized by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.

In addition, we may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or pursuant to legal process, such as under the Health Insurance Portability Act (“HIPAA”) (for example, we may disclose your information as necessary to comply with an authorized civil, criminal or regulatory investigation), (ii) in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.

We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to require that the transferee use personal information you have provided through this website in a manner that is consistent with this privacy policy.

7. HEALTHCARE PRIVACY AND SECURITY RULES

As a Business Associate of health care providers that are Covered Entities under the federal healthcare privacy and security rules (HIPAA and HITECH), we maintain your Personal Health Information (PHI) in compliance with these rules and our contractual obligations with health care providers. We share information with health care providers who provide services to individuals, and they share information with us, for purposes related to treatment, payment and health care operations, and otherwise as agreed or authorized by you. Currently our main focus is providing a platform to allow individuals to receive telehealth Services from various healthcare providers and to serve as a platform upon which various healthcare providers can administer telemedicine services to patients. We collect your personal information solely for the purposes of providing the Services, marketing and promoting our Services to you, and for market research data. By agreeing to our Terms of Use and using our services you are consenting to the use of your personal data in this manner. We also give you the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving direct marketing or market research information by emailing us at privacy@azova.com. If we use PHI for direct marketing or market research purposes, we will ask you for your authorization.

8. LINKS TO OTHER SITES

Occasionally we provide links to other websites for your convenience and information. These websites operate independently from our Application and are not under our control. These sites may have their own privacy notices or terms of use, which we strongly suggest you review if you visit any linked websites. We are not responsible for the content of these sites, any products or services that may be offered through these sites, or any other use of the linked sites.

9. HOW WE PROTECT PERSONAL INFORMATION

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards for the Application designed to protect against loss, misuse or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the personal information we collect through our Application. However, you should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever completely secure. We maintain a high level of data protection via safeguards such as data backup, audit controls, access controls, and some data encryption. We use account information in a password-protected environment as a security measure to protect your data. Our Application and Services use industry standard SSL encryption to enhance the security of electronic data transmissions.

In addition, we urge you to take precautionary measures in maintaining the integrity of your data. Please be responsible in making sure no one can see or has access to your personal account and login/password information. If you use a public computer, e.g., at a library or a university, always remember to logout of the Application. If you use our Application or Services through your employer’s computer network or through a potentially non-secure internet connection, such use is at your own risk. We are not responsible for your handling, sharing, re-sharing and/or distribution of your personal or personal health information.

10. INFORMATION WE TRANSFER

Our Application may link to or refer to websites or mobile device applications that we do not control. Any Personal Information you provide on the linked pages is provided directly to this third party and is subject to this third party’s provider’s privacy policy. This Privacy Policy does not apply to such other websites or applications, and we are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of any website or application not controlled by us. If you have any concerns, we urge you to review the terms of those other websites or applications for more information about their applicable policies.

11. HOW LONG WE KEEP INFORMATION

We will keep your personal information for the time period necessary to achieve the purposes outlined in this privacy policy, taking into account applicable statute of limitation periods and records retention requirements under applicable law.

12. YOUR RIGHTS

Subject to applicable law, you have the right to request access to and rectification of the personal information we maintain about you, to request the restriction of the processing of your personal information, or to object to that processing on grounds relating to your particular situation. In addition, you may have the right to request erasure of your personal information in certain circumstances provided by applicable law. Subject to applicable law, where technically feasible, upon written request and verifiable identification, we will provide you with a copy of your personal information in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format.

To exercise these rights, please contact us as indicated below. Depending upon where you are located, for example in the European Union, you may lodge a complaint with a data protection authority if you are not satisfied with our response. We would, however, appreciate the opportunity to deal with your concerns before you approach a data protection authority, so please contact us in the first instance.

You can close your online patient account by sending an e-mail message to request account closure to cancel@azovahealth.com. You will no longer have access to any of the information on your AZOVA account. AZOVA will not be able to restore access to this account in any way.

If you would like to request that the information you have shared with any healthcare professional be deleted, you must contact that healthcare professional directly and make the request.
