KEY DEFINITIONS

Aggregate Information” is information that has been combined with information about other users and analyzed or evaluated as a whole, such that no specific individual may be reasonably identified. For example, Aggregate Information may include a statement that says “50% of our users have uploaded medical information in the last 6 months.”

Cookies” are small text files that are placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to your browser or device, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the Cookie to you.

Health Care Providers” are providers, doctors, specialists, professionals and other organizations who deliver health care services to you and/or take part in your treatment.

Health Device Data” is any information that is derived from a mobile device or a wearable fitness tracker that tracks or monitors behavior in a way intended to give the user insight into physical activity and wellness.

Personal Information” is any information that relates to you directly or indirectly.

Usage Information” is information that we automatically collect about your device and your use of the Services. This type of information does not usually, by itself, uniquely identify you, but it may still be Personal Information. Usage Information may include your IP address, domain server, type of device(s) and web browser(s) used to access the Services, referring webpage or other source through which you accessed the Services, and other statistics and information associated with the interaction between your browser or device.

Web Beacons” (also known as “clear GIFs” and “pixel tags”) are small bits of code embedded in web pages or in emails that are used to monitor the behavior of a website user or recipient of an email.

Your Content” is the information, comments, photos, images, video, data, text, and other content that you may post, upload, store, share, send or display through the Patientory Application. Your Content also includes any copies of or excerpts from medical records and Personal Information that you upload to the Services.

HOW WE COLLECT YOUR INFORMATION

We may collect your information in the following ways:

 

 

 

 

If you choose not to provide us with any of your information, you may still be able to access and use some of our Services. Note, however, that certain features of our Services that require your information may not be accessible to you.

HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS STORED

Storage of your Content using the Patientory Application relies on blockchain technology.  This means that Patientory community members who are not affiliated with Patientory, Inc. are incentivized to provide and facilitate access to digital storage space.  This system is designed with the intent that these community members are unable to access unencrypted copies of your Content.  Patientory, Inc. maintains access to the information stored with these third party service providers for analytics and other purposes as described in this Privacy Policy.  Patientory may not have the ability to recover your Content if issues arise in the storage or transfer of this information from community members providing digital storage space for the Patientory Application.  Please refer to the “How We Protect Your Information” section of this Privacy Policy below for more information.

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

We use your information to operate, provide, analyze, and improve the Services, consistent with our commitments in this Privacy Policy. These activities may include, but are not limited to:

 

 

 

 

 

We may de-identify or aggregate your information with other users of the Services. This de-identified or Aggregate Information may be used by us for any lawful purpose, including for data mining and analytics.

DATA COLLECTION TECHNOLOGIES

We use Cookies and other Data Collection Technologies to provide you with a better experience when you use the Patientory Website. Data Collection Technologies help, us to remember your settings and preferences, keep your information safe and secure, and enable our partners to serve ads for our products and services, including those targeted to your interests.

For example, we partner with Google Analytics, who uses Cookies to track your interactions with our Website. Google then collects that information and reports it to us, without identifying individual users. This information helps us improve our Services so that we can better serve users like you. For more information on Google Analytics, visit https://support.google.com/analytics.

Although most browsers and devices accept Cookies and other Data Collection Technologies by default, their settings usually allow you to clear or decline Cookies. If you disable Cookies, some of the features of our Website may not function properly.

Interest Based Advertising: We may use service providers to serve advertisements on our behalf across the Internet. These advertising service providers may collect (through the use of Data Collection Technologies) non-identifiable information about your visits to and interactions with our Website. In addition, our service providers may also use the information about your visits to other websites to target advertisements for products and services available from us. If you would like more information about this practice, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) at http://optout.networkadvertising.org/#!/.

Please note: Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature (“DNT”) that signals to the websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Many websites and applications, including our Website, do not currently respond to web browser DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, please visit http://allaboutdnt.com.

WHEN WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

Because we know your Personal Information is important to you, we may share your information for the reason(s) disclosed to you at the time we collect it, with your consent, as well as in the following ways:

 

 

 

 

We reserve the right to share or sell Aggregate Information and other de-identified information (including metadata) to third parties for their own internal purposes, and publicly disclose such Aggregated Information and de-identified information, for example, in our marketing materials and research reports.

NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL USERS

Patientory is based in the United States and the information we collect is governed by U.S. law.  We recognize that the laws in the United States may be different and, in some cases, less protective as the laws other countries, including the European Economic Area (“EEA”). By providing us with your Personal Information and using our Site, you acknowledge that your Personal Information will be transferred to and processed in the United States.  Patientory is also committed to complying with data protection laws outside of the United States that apply to our collection and use of your Personal Information.

If you are located in the EEA, we have identified the following legal bases for the processing of Personal Information that we collect under this Privacy Policy:

If applicable, you may make a complaint to the data protection supervisory authority in the country where you reside. Alternatively you may seek a remedy through local courts if you believe your rights have been breached.

YOUR CHOICES

Your preferences about how we use your information are important to us and, when possible, we aim to honor them. We offer the following choices that you can exercise with regard to your Personal Information, some of which may be required under local laws (e.g., in the EEA). Please note, however, that we may decline your requests in some circumstances.  For example, we may need to continue processing your information for our legitimate interests or to comply with a legal obligation. We may request you to provide us with information necessary to confirm your identity before responding to your request.

 

 

 

 

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION

The security of Personal Information is important to us. We use reasonable safeguards aimed to protect against unauthorized use, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the Personal Information we collect and maintain. You should keep in mind, however, that no data transmitted over the Internet is 100% secure and any information disclosed online can potentially be collected and used by parties other than the intended recipient. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our Services.

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY RIGHTS

We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. Neither Patientory nor any of its Services are designed for, intended to attract, or directed toward children under the age of thirteen, and we do not knowingly process data of persons under the age of sixteen in the EEA.  If we become aware that a user is under the age of thirteen, or under the age of sixteen in the EEA, and has provided personal information to us, we will take reasonable steps to remove all information provided by such underage user from our database.

RETENTION OF YOUR INFORMATION

We keep your information for no longer than necessary for the purposes for which it is processed. The length of time for which we retain information depends on the purposes for which we collected and use it and/or as required to comply with applicable laws.

THIRD PARTY LINKS AND SERVICES

We provide links to third party websites operated by organizations not affiliated with Patientory. We do not disclose your Personal Information to organizations operating such linked third party websites. Patientory does not review or endorse, and is not responsible for, the privacy practices of these organizations. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each and every website that you visit. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by Patientory through the Services.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

As we improve our Services over time, we may need to update this Privacy Policy to reflect new ways we may collect and use your information. When we update this Privacy Policy, we will post a new Effective Date at the top. If we make material changes that would impact your use of the Services or your privacy, we will endeavor to notify you of the changes prior to the changes taking effect, such as by posting a notice directly on the Services, by sending an email notification (if you have provided your email address to us), or by any other reasonable method.
