EASE Privacy Agreement
Licensor maintains an ongoing commitment to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Accordingly, any personally identifiable information provided by you to Licensor when you use the Application shall be used in accordance with the conditions outlined in the Agreement and this Policy. Just as the Policy forms a part of the Agreement, the Agreement forms a part of the Policy, and the Agreement is incorporated herein by this reference. All capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Policy shall have the same meaning as set forth in the Agreement.
Licensor may change the Agreement and/or this Policy periodically by updating the same. When Licensor makes changes to the Agreement or the Policy which it considers material, Licensor will notify you through the Application, by email, or otherwise. By continuing to use the Application after those changes are made, you are expressing and acknowledging your acceptance of the changes.
The Information We Collect
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted through the Application. While using the Application, you may have the opportunity to register for services, make requests, and post content. Accordingly, depending on the process, you may be asked to provide the following types of personally identifiable information:
- Your name
- Your postal address
- Your email address
- Your phone number
- Your age
- Your gender or other demographic information
- Your location information
- The name of the Patient who identified you as a Designated Person
- The Patient’s date of birth
- The date of the Patient’s medical procedure associated with your use of the Application
As set forth in the Agreement, we may also request, retain, share and use the Communications (as such term is defined in the Agreement) you send us, including, without limitation, your responses to questionnaires and surveys in which we ask you to participate.
We may also, but are not obligated to, retain or destroy copies of all data transmitted to you during an EASE Encounter (such data herein referred to as an “EASE Communication“, as such term is defined in the Agreement). We may also deliver copies of all such EASE Communications to the Facility to be stored, utilized and administered as the Facility deems appropriate.
Use of Personally Identifiable Information
Licensor takes your privacy very seriously. Accordingly, we agree that we will only use the information you provide for the following specific purposes: to effectuate a registration made by you; to customize the advertising and content you see; to improve the content and overall look and feel of the Application; and to contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients, when necessary. We may also, and you hereby authorize us to, share all information we receive from you or through your use of the Application with the Facility. We are not responsible for, and you hereby agree to hold us harmless from, the manner in which the Facility utilizes the information we receive from you or through your use of the Application.
We agree that we will not share, sell, rent or otherwise distribute your personally identifiable information with outside parties (other than the Facility), except to provide products or services you’ve requested through us, or in response to a validly-issued subpoena, court order, or other legal process, or when necessary to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims made by you or on your behalf.
From time to time, we may employ the use of return email addresses to answer the email we receive from you. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties (other than the Facility).
Finally, we agree that we will never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us by you in any way that violates or is otherwise unrelated to the means described in the Agreement or this Policy, without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
In order to use some features of the Application, you must first complete the registration process. During registration, you are required to provide certain personally identifiable information, including, but not limited to the information described above (see: “The Information We Collect”). This information will periodically be used by us to contact you about Application news, updates and changes to the Agreement or this Policy, and to enable you to retrieve your registration information, access code, and password, if necessary.
Correction of Personally Identifiable Information
So that we may best serve you, you are responsible for ensuring that all personally identifiable information you provide on this site is maintained and kept current.
Cookies and Similar Technologies
Please note: No personally identifiable information is collected with the cookies that we set.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, Licensor has established appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information Licensor collects through the Application.
Protecting the privacy of children is especially important to Licensor. For that reason, Licensor never allows registration of users (i.e. Designated Persons or Secondary Recipients) under the age of 18. Additionally, Licensor does not collect or maintain information through the Application from users Licensor actually knows are under 18 years of age. The foregoing, however, does not preclude an individual who is under the age of 18 from being a Patient, provided such Patient’s parent, legal representative, authorized healthcare surrogate, attorney-in-fact, guardian or other legal caretaker consents to the Patient’s involvement in the EASE Encounter. It is hereby acknowledged and agreed that it shall be the responsibility of the Facility, and not Licensor, to obtain the consent of such Patients’ parents, legal representatives, authorized healthcare surrogates, attorneys-in-fact, guardians or other legal caretakers.
