Hale Health, Inc. (“Hale”) develops, operates and distributes certain software applications ("Apps"), which include web apps, hosted applications and applications for mobile devices. The Apps, together with the services for communications, coordination and management by patients and healthcare professionals regarding medical conditions, and the data collection, storage, analysis and reporting tools, functions and services, that are provided via the Apps, are collectively referred to as the "Service".
The following policy explains how Hale collects, uses and disseminates information obtained from or about you as a user of the Service. Capitalized terms used herein without definition will have the same meanings as defined in the Terms of Service applicable to the Service, which are available at www.hale.co/tos.
When you visit the Hale website (the "Site") or otherwise access the Service, web servers collect general information about your visit (such as, for example, traffic data like time, date and the address of the website from which you entered the Site), which is stored as anonymous, aggregate data. Hale also collects more specific information about you and your use of the Service (such as, for example, demographic data, profile data and frequency or duration of use). Collecting such data (collectively, "Traffic Data") may entail the use of software programs, web beacons, pixel tags, cookies, IP addresses or other numeric codes used to identify a computer.
The Service may be accessed: by visiting the Hale website directly; or by using an App that is downloaded from Hale (or a Channel Partner), which then communicates with Hale’s web servers.
Regardless of how you access the Service, to ensure the integrity of the Service, you must complete an account registration process and provide Hale with current, complete and accurate information, as more specifically required by then current registration procedures and operational prompts. If some or all of your registration information has already been provided to Hale by the Clinical Partner, then you will need to review and confirm, complete or correct your information.
By way of illustration and not limitation, you may be required to provide the following information in order to establish your account and register for and use the Service: name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, date of birth, username, password and certain preferences and permissions.
Whenever you interact with the Service, a variety of technologies are employed to automatically or passively collect Service Data. The term "Service Data" means all data and information that are provided by you during registration and subsequent use of the Service (including messaging related to Healthcare Services), and all other data and information about you that are otherwise discerned or collected by Hale based on your access and use of the Service. For clarity, Service Data includes, but is not limited to: PII; PHI; browser or device type; operating system; time of day; identification of Site or App page views; use of particular Service features (such as, for example, report requests or viewing or responding to queries from Clinicians); and geographic location. At no time will an App access, collect or store any of the personal contacts or photographs or any other information stored on your device without your permission.
Except as set forth below, at no time will any of your Personal Data be shared with any third party by Hale. Your IP address is not linked to personally identifiable information, but is used to gather broad demographic data and to monitor statistics to improve the Service.
Hale uses Traffic Data to help diagnose problems with its web servers, to administer the Service and to analyze user trends and behaviors. Hale will share Traffic Data with certain third parties for the purposes of technical and customer support.
Hale collects, stores, processes and analyzes Service Data and produces Analytics. The term "Analytics" means user profiles and statistics, metrics, abstractions and other analyses that are based on or derived from your use of the Service and Service Data, which are developed in the aggregate with other data, results and measurements or in a manner that does not disclose the identity of any Patient, Clinician or Clinical Partner or any specific Service Data (except in aggregated or de-identified form).
Hale will use your Service Data and exploit Analytics in the manner and for the purposes described in the Terms of Service, including without limitation: to use Service Data to communicate with you and your Patients, Clinician(s) and Clinical Partner (as the case may be); to include, copy, disclose, distribute, transmit and display Service Data in communications between a Patient and his or her Clinician (and vice versa) that have been properly initiated via the Service; to access, record, collect, copy, store, process, analyze and use Service Data to provide the Service (including with regard to the use of PHI in messaging between a Patient and his or her Clinician); to develop, improve, extend and test the Service (and underlying technology platforms); to design, develop and produce Analytics; to market and promote Hale and the Service using Analytics; and to disclose, distribute and transmit Service Data and/or Analytics to Clinical Partners.
Hale uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with its web servers and administer the Service. Your IP address is used to help identify you, gather demographic information, and provide an audit trail regarding use of the Service.
Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user’s computer.
At this time, the Service does not utilize cookies. However, Hale does use the local storage on your device to track whether or not you are logged in and to store session-specific preferences. We do not save any other information about you in local storage.
Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities, over time and across different websites.
When you turn on the Do Not Track function in your browser, Hale stops collecting the information from your browser that allows us to tailor the Service specifically to you. Do Not Track signals are set on a browser-by-browser basis, so you must set them on every browser you use if you do not wish to be tracked.
For clarity, this is just our Do Not Track policy. Hale cannot and does not make any promise about how third parties react when you set the Do Not Track signal on your browser. In addition, the Do Not Track signal does not apply to the use of information collected prior to such request.
In operating the Service, and as it relates to PHI, Hale endeavors to comply in all material respects with HIPAA. Please request our full policies for more information.
