PRIVACY POLICY

 

This Privacy Policy describes the policies and procedures of WellSeek, Inc. (“WellSeek,” “we,” “our” or “us”) on the collection, use and disclosure of your information (“Collected Information”) on WellSeek’s website, products, and services (collectively, “Offerings”).

WellSeek receives information about you from various sources, including: (i) if you register for the Offerings, through your user account on the Offerings (your “Account”); (ii) your use of the Offerings generally; and (iii) from third party websites, services, content, or resources.  When you use the Offerings, you are consenting to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy also covers our treatment of any personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that our business partners share with us or that we share with our business partners.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control, including but not limited to any third party websites, services and applications (“Third Party Services”) that you elect to access through the Offerings or to individuals that we do not manage or employ.  While we attempt to facilitate access only to those Third Party Services that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those Third Party Services. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third Party Services you access.

At WellSeek, we are committed to upholding a high standard when it comes to our privacy practices.  We use secure technologies and follow best practices.  WellSeek will not sell or disclose your personal information to third parties without your explicit consent, except as specified in our Privacy Policy.  WellSeek gathers information so we can personalize, improve and continue to provide the Offerings to you. WellSeek is designed to help you share information with others and some of the information generated through the Offerings may be shared publicly or with third parties.  We may share information about you as follows or otherwise described in this Privacy Policy: with vendors, consultants and other service providers who need access to such information to carry out work on our behalf; to assist Dietitians in providing you with information or answer questions you may have in connection with our Offerings; if we believe your actions are inconsistent with the spirit or language of our user agreements or policies, or to protect the rights, property and safety of WellSeek or others; and with your consent or at your direction, including if we notify you through our Offerings that the information you provide will be shared in a particular manner and you provide such information.

Account Information

WellSeek’s Privacy Policy covers Personal Information obtained when creating your Account.  This may include your name, phone number, gender, payment information, address (both physical and electronic), username, and password.  We may gather information you provide when using or accessing the Offerings such as weight, height, and location data.  We may also collect “non-personally identifiable” information, meaning information that cannot be used to specifically identify you.  WellSeek uses both types of information, including combinations of thereof, as described herein.

Protected Health Information

If you are a client receiving nutritional advice or consultations through the Offerings from a Dietitian, you have other rights with respect to the access, use, and disclosure of your protected health information (“PHI”).  For a more complete description of your rights under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), please refer to your Dietitian’s Notice of Privacy Practices, which provides important information to you about how your PHI may be used and disclosed.

PHI is information about you that may be used to identify you such as your name, social security number, or address, and that relates to (a) your past, present, or future health or condition, (b) the provision of health care to you, or (c) your past, present, or future payment for the provision of health care.  In providing the Offerings, we will receive and create records containing your PHI, and may use it to assist in you in handling appointments, bill amounts due for health care services provided by a Dietitian under the Offerings, develop and conduct surveys with you to assist in providing you better Offerings, conduct our management and administrative activities, and otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy.

User Content

All content submitted by you to the Offerings may be retained by us indefinitely, even after you terminate your Account.  We may continue to disclose such content to third parties in a manner that does not reveal Personal Information or PHI, as described in this Privacy Policy.

Financial Information

Currently, WellSeek does not collect financial information, such as your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information).  Financial information is collected and stored by our third party payment processing company (“Payment Processor”).  The Payment Processor’s applicable terms of service and privacy policy governs the use and storage of financial information.

WellSeek may request and receive some of your financial information from our Payment Processor for the purposes of completing transactions through the Offerings, protecting against or identifying fraudulent transactions, and otherwise as needed to manage the Offerings.

Advertising

We do not provide Personal Information to any third parties for use outside of the Offerings.  We may serve advertisements and also allow third party advertisements through the Offerings.  These advertisements are sometimes targeted and served to particular users and may come from third party companies (“ad networks”), including third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms.  The advertisements may target users who fit a certain general profile category based on anonymized information inferred from information provided to us by a user, including Personal Information, usage patterns of particular users, or your activity on Third Party Services.

Public Information

Some of your activity on and through the Offerings is public by default.  This may include, but is not limited to, content you have posted publicly through the Offerings.  Registered users may have some of this information associated with their Accounts.  Unregistered users will not have this association, but information concerning their use of the Services may be tracked anonymously through the use of cookies and stored by us.

Dietitians

When using the Offerings you may share your Personal Information and/or PHI with your designated Dietitian(s).  By using the Offerings, you expressly consent to sharing your Personal Information and/or PHI with your Dietitian, and you understand that all information shared with your Dietitian is subject to your Dietitian’s professional and legal duties of confidentiality and responsibility, which WellSeek does not control.  You expressly authorize the sharing of this information with other Dietitians on WellSeek who you elect to contact.

Agents

WellSeek may employ and contract with other people and entities that perform certain tasks on our behalf and who are under our control (“Agents”).  We may share Personal Information with our Agents to provide products and services to you.  Unless otherwise advised, our Agents, do not have any right to use Personal Information or other information we share with them outside of the scope of what is necessary to assist you.  You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal Information with our Agents.

Business Engagements

WellSeek may engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of the information described in this Privacy Policy.  WellSeek may choose to buy or sell assets.  User information is typically one of the transferred business assets.  You acknowledge that such transfers may office, and that any acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Legal Purposes

WellSeek reserves the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information WellSeek reasonably believes is necessary to (i) comply with a law, regulation or legal request; (ii) to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or WellSeek; (iii) to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; or (iv) to enforce this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service.

Security

We seek to protect Account information to ensure that it is kept private.  WellSeek stores all of your information using industry-standard techniques.  However, WellSeek cannot guarantee the security of any Account information.  Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.  Your Account information will be protected by a password for your privacy and security.  You need to prevent unauthorized access to your Account and Personal Information and protect your password.

When we collect, maintain, access, use, or disclose your Personal Information and/or PHI, we will do so using systems and processes consistent with information privacy and security requirements under applicable federal and state laws, including, without limitation, HIPAA.  We will limit access to your Personal Information and PHI to personnel who have a need to know it for purposes of delivering our Offerings.  All of our personnel must comply with our restrictions on access, use, and disclosure of PHI or fact disciplinary action.
