2. Information You Choose to Submit
We collect information that personally identifies you, such as your name, telephone number, email address, date of birth and other data which can be reasonably linked to such information (“Personal Information”) only if you choose to share such information with us. For example, you will be required to provide us with certain Personal Information to register with the Services, sign up for certain services available through the Services (such as text messages and other communications services which may offer you the ability to share information with third parties, such as health care professionals), and at other times. The decision to provide this information is optional; however, if you decide not to register or provide such information, you may not be able to use some or all of the features of the Services. Further, Medocity offers location-enabled services, for example to locate a nearby doctor or pharmacy. If you use those services, Medocity may receive information about your actual location (such as GPS signals sent by a mobile device) or information that can be used to approximate a location (such as a cell ID). You will have the option to disable collection and use of location information. However, doing so may prevent you from using some features of the Services, or limit the function of some features.
You may review, correct, update or change your Personal Information, or remove your Personal Information from our direct marketing efforts, at any time by visiting your profile or account page on the Services, or by contacting us at: 44 Whippany Road, Suite 108, Morristown, NJ 07960, Email: email@example.com
Medocity offers you the ability to share your Health Information through certain services available on the Services. “Health Information” includes both Protected Health Information and Additional Health Information. “Protected Health Information” is personally identifiable information which relates to your health or payment for your health that is created or received by an entity covered under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), such as a third-party health care professional providing services through the Services. Protected Health Information includes the combination of your Personal Information and personal health information, such as medical records, medical history and/or information regarding a condition or treatment (e.g. information about symptoms, prescriptions, allergies, diagnoses and outcomes or side effects of treatment). “Additional Health Information” is any and all other personal health information which is not Protected Health Information, generally because such information was not created or received by a HIPAA-covered entity.
Before sharing your Health Information with others or granting anyone else access to your account, you should be aware that Medocity does not and cannot control how anyone else may use your information or account. Health Information you provide to others may not be protected, kept private, or be secure. If you allow someone else to have access to your account, they will have access to your Health Information, and they may share it with others. You are solely responsible for all use of your account, by yourself or anyone whom you permit to use it. Medocity will not be liable for any disclosure or use of Health Information or other information by you or anyone using your account with your permission.
You should not upload any Health Information regarding any person other than yourself without that person’s prior express consent. You must obtain the consent of your family member or any other person before you submit or share Health Information about that person. By submitting or sharing Health Information about a family member or anyone else, you represent and warrant that you have obtained that person’s express consent to do so or that you otherwise have the legal authority to do so (e.g. because that person is a minor and you are the parent or legal guardian).
3. Information We Automatically Collect
We automatically collect information that does not reflect or reference an individually identifiable user (“Non-Personal Information”) to help us understand how our users use the Services. Like most Web sites, we automatically collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files may include the IP address of the computer or server that you are using to access the Services, the IP address and/or the URL from the Web site you visited just before you visited our Services, the URL of the page you visit upon leaving the Services, if any, and the type of browser and operating system you are using. This anonymous usage information may be associated with your user name and profile, but we will not disclose the associated information to third parties.

5. How We Use Information
We may use Personal Information, Health Information and Non-Personal Information for internal purposes, such as to notify you of new products or services, to send service notifications, to customize the advertising and content you see, to fulfill your requests for products and services, to improve the Services, to conduct research, to solicit your feedback and input about the Services and to provide more relevant products, services and advertisements on or through the Services.

firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon receipt of the written revocation, we will stop using or disclosing your Protected Health Information, except to the extent that we have already taken action in reliance on the authorization.
We may use Personal Information and Health Information to facilitate health care services offered on or through the Services, and we may disclose such information to third-party health care service professionals with whom you choose to communicate. In addition, from time to time, we may establish a business relationship with other persons or entities whom we believe trustworthy and whom we have asked to confirm that their privacy practices are consistent with ours (“Service Providers”). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, data storage and management services and marketing and promotions. We provide our Service Providers with the information reasonably necessary for them to perform these services. Each Service Provider must agree to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information involved in order to protect your information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure.
We may use, and disclose to third parties, certain Non-Personal Information regarding the Services (e.g., the total number of persons using particular medications, the aggregate number of inquiries from a particular geographic location, etc.). However, such information does not identify you individually.
6. Public Areas
Please be advised that, whenever you voluntarily post information to any community or interactive areas of the Services, such information can and may be accessed by the public. This means that any person or entity with access to such information can potentially use it for any purpose, including sending unsolicited communications.
Information that we collect is stored on servers that Medocity manages, using standard security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information in an effort to protect information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect information transmitted on or through the Services, we cannot and do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit on or through the Services, and you do so at your own risk.
8. Children’s Privacy Statement
We do not knowingly collect Personal Information or Health Information from children under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received Personal Information or Health Information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete such information from our records.
