The HIPAA Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals' medical records and other personal health information and applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those health care providers (“covered entities”) that conduct certain health care transactions electronically.  The Rule requires appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of personal health information, and sets limits and conditions on the uses and disclosures that may be made of such information without patient authorization. The Rule also gives patients rights over their health information, including rights to examine and obtain a copy of their health records, and to request corrections.

Health care provider” means a provider of services (as defined in section 1861(u) of the Social Security Act), a provider of medical or health services (as defined in section 1861(s) of the Act), and any other person or organization who furnishes, bills, or is paid for health care in the normal course of business. 

Protected Health Information” is considered to be individually identifiable information relating to the past, present, or future health status of an individual that is created, collected, or transmitted, or maintained by a covered entity in relation to the provision of healthcare, payment for healthcare services, or use in healthcare operations. 

If you are a Health Care Provider, you represent and warrant to the Company that you comply with HIPAA and take all necessary measures to safeguard Protected Health Information of Clients you connect to through the Platform.  

When Health Care Providers share any Protected Health Information of their Clients with us, we  safeguard such Protected Health Information in accordance with this Privacy & Cookie Policy. However, it is solely Health Care Providers’ responsibility to make sure that any Protected Health Information is safe. Please refer to the Security Section below in order to learn what measures we take in order to secure personal information (including Protected Health Information). 


If you submit any feedback, review, or suggestion (collectively, “Feedback”) to us about us or any user of the Platform, you agree to assign to Company all rights in the Feedback and agree that Company shall have the right to use such Feedback and related information in any manner it deems appropriate. We will treat any Feedback you provide to us as non-confidential and non-proprietary. You agree that you will not submit to us any information or ideas that you consider to be confidential or proprietary.


This Cookie Policy provides information about our use of cookies in connection with your use of and interaction with our Platform. 

A “cookie” is a small piece of data sent along with pages of a website and stored by the user's web browser on the user's computer or mobile device. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember certain information (such as items added in a shopping cart) or to record a user's browsing activity (including clicking particular buttons, logging in, or recording which pages were visited in the past). Cookies are intended to help you access a website faster and more efficiently, because they can store information to help you enter a website without having to log in. In effect, cookies tell the website that your browser has been to the website before. It does not need to know your exact identity. Cookies can also be used to remember arbitrary pieces of information that the user previously entered into form fields such as names, addresses, passwords, and credit card numbers.

Browsers may accept or reject cookies automatically but allow you to change these settings. The help menu on most browsers will tell you how to change your browser’s settings and how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable cookies all together. You can also disable or delete cookies you have previously accepted if you wish to. 

Like many other websites, we also use cookies on our Platform. By using the Platform, you agree that we may install cookies listed below. These cookies ensure that certain parts of the Platform work properly and that your user preferences remain known. You do have the right to opt-out and to object against the further use of any cookies. However if you do so, please keep in mind that our Platform may no longer function properly for you.

The following are examples of cookies that may be used on our Platform:

a) Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Platform and use its features. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like saving your project, or applying for a project, cannot be provided. 

b) Performance / analytic cookies. These cookies collect data about how visitors use our Platform, including the country from which the visitor is accessing the Platform. They allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the Platform when they are using it. 

c) Functionality cookies. These are used to recognize you when you return to our Platform. This enables us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).

d) Targeting/Advertising Cookies: These are used to deliver ads which are more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They remember that you have visited the Platform and this information may be shared with other organizations, e.g., advertisers. 


We are committed to protecting children's personal information and comply with the strictest privacy laws out there. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of majority. If you are a minor, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a minor, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. Please contact us if you believe we may have collected information from a minor.


We will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy & Cookie Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements) or up until such time when you withdraw your consent for processing it. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.


We use AWS servers to safely store your information. The data centers where we store your information are located in the United States. Please keep in mind that the data protection and privacy laws of the United States may not be as comprehensive as the laws in your country. For example, personal data transferred to the United States may be subject to lawful access requests by federal and state authorities in the United States. By providing your personal information, you consent to any transfer of your data and processing in accordance with this Privacy & Cookie Policy.


The security of your information is very important to us. We apply all reasonable security measures and comply with the industry standards to protect your personal information (including, preventing the loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction of your personal information). Notably, access to the Platform’s database with your personal information is held behind administrative logins and managed, controlled and limited to authorized website administrators and support technicians only. Data transmitted between browser and application servers is encrypted using an HTTPS/SSL certificate. We use XSRF against cross-domain attacks. Data is backed up daily. The Platform’s server software is updated regularly to ensure we are running the latest and safest software (where applicable and depending on compatibility). The server's firewall is configured to prevent unauthorized access, and activity is automatically monitored to detect and ban malicious activity.

Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are impenetrable. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Thus, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure and do not warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.


Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party ads on our Platform. These third party ads may contain links that would lead to third party websites. We have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites and we encourage you to read their privacy policies before buying any product or service from them. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our Platform and welcome any feedback about these third party websites.

Moreover, we may allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you access the Platform. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., clickstream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to our Platform in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice, or to opt out of this type of advertising, visit the website of Network Advertising Initiative or “NAI”. Please keep in mind that opt out does not apply to advertising from non-NAI members. We are not an NAI member, and do not represent that the Platform fully complies with all NAI standards.


Our Platform does not respond to and does not support the Do Not Track (DNT) header request field. If you turn DNT on in your browser, those preferences will not be communicated to us in the HTTP request header, and we will continue tracking your browsing behavior.

  7. the right to object (for example, you have an absolute right to stop us from using your personal information for direct marketing - read our opt-out instructions below; you may express your objection verbally or in writing and we have a month to respond to any such objection; we might still continue processing your personal information if we are able to show that we have a compelling reason for doing so);
  8. the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or that affects you significantly.

We represent and warrant that your personal information is:

  1. processed lawfully, fairly and transparently;

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) is a state-wide data privacy law that regulates how businesses all over the world are allowed to handle the personal information of California residents. CCPA provides California residents with five core rights to data privacy and an effective way to control their personal information. 

If you are a California resident, you have the following rights with regard to your personal information: 

  1. the right to know what personal information is being collected about you. 
  2. the right to know whether your personal information is sold or disclosed and to whom. 
  3. the right to say no to the sale of personal information (“the right to opt out”); we have created a Do Not Sell My Personal Information webpage that provides you with more details on this matter.  
  4. the right to access your personal information (under CCPA, a business may provide personal information to a consumer at any time, but shall not be required to provide personal information to a consumer more than twice in a 12-month period);
  5. the right to equal service and price, even if you exercise your privacy rights. 

Additionally, a California consumer has the right to request that a business delete any personal information about the consumer which the business has collected from the consumer. However, a business or a service provider shall not be required to comply with a consumer’s request to delete the consumer’s personal information if it is necessary for the business or service provider to maintain the consumer’s personal information in order to: 

  1. complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected, provide a good or service requested by the consumer, or reasonably anticipated within the context of a business’s ongoing business relationship with the consumer, or otherwise perform a contract between the business and the consumer;
  2. detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; or prosecute those responsible for that activity; 
  3. debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality;
  4. exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise his or her right of free speech, or exercise another right provided for by law; 
  5. comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act pursuant to Chapter 3.6 (commencing with Section 1546) of Title 12 of Part 2 of the Penal Code;
  6. engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the businesses’ deletion of the information is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of such research, if the consumer has provided informed consent;
  7. enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with the expectations of the consumer based on the consumer’s relationship with the business;
  8. comply with a legal obligation;
  9. otherwise use the consumer’s personal information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which the consumer provided the information. 

Conflict resolution under CCPA: Prior to initiating any action against a business for statutory damages on an individual or class-wide basis, a California consumer shall provide a business 30 days’ written notice identifying the specific provisions of this title the consumer alleges have been or are being violated. In the event a cure is possible, if within the thirty (30) days the business actually cures the noticed violation and provides the consumer an express written statement that the violations have been cured and that no further violations shall occur, no action for individual statutory damages or class-wide statutory damages may be initiated against the business. Contact us should you need to exercise any of your rights under CCPA.
