HEALTH INSURANCE PORTABILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY ACT (HIPPA)

If you are a patient based in the US, please note that this Policy is distinct from your Healthcare Practitioner’s HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices, which describes how your HCP uses and discloses individually identifiable information about your health that it collects, as well as any other privacy practices it applies. Personal Data we receive on behalf of your Healthcare Practitioner is not subject to this Policy

AGGREGATED, ANONYMIZED AND DE-IDENTIFIED DATA

Esko may process anonymised/de-identified data. This is data for which the characteristics that can identify you, directly or indirectly, have been removed such that you are no longer identifiable, and this information is no longer considered Personal Data under data protection laws. This includes in the United States the removal of identifiers from protected health information required under HIPAA, 45 CFR § 164.514(b)(2), for such data to be considered deidentified. We rely on our legitimate business interest, scientific or historical research and/or statistical purposes, consent or other purposes that may be required or allowed by law as the legal basis to anonymise Personal Data.

We may also obtain and use certain types of combined data sets such as demographic data for any purpose (“Aggregated Data”). Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data but does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate certain information technology-related data of yours with others’ data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific feature on our website. We may use Aggregated Data for any purpose without restriction. However, if we re-combine or re-connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this Policy.

COMBINING INFORMATION

We combine information we collect on the website with information we receive from you in person, by email, or by other forms of communication. We also combine information you provide with information we obtain from third parties, service providers, publicly available sources and our subsidiaries, affiliates or related companies.

INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM CHILDREN

Our sites and apps are meant for adults. We do not knowingly collect Personal Data from children 17 years old or younger without permission from a parent or legal guardian. If you are a parent or legal guardian and think your child has given us information, you can email or write to us using the details in the ‘Contact Us’ section below.

INFORMATION STORAGE

We may transfer, process, and store your information to the US, Canada, India, European Union member states, the United Kingdom, or other countries. Our affiliates or other third-party service providers may also transfer, process, or store your information in the US or other countries. Our sites and businesses may be subject to US laws, which may not afford the same level of protection as those in your country.

CROSS BORDER DATA TRANSFERS

We may transfer your Personal Data to recipients in countries other than the country in which your Personal Data was originally collected. When we transfer your Personal Data in such a manner, we take steps for your data to be protected consistent with the laws and requirements in your country, including the requirements that apply to cross-border data transfers. We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of protecting your Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access. As is the case with all websites, applications, products, and services, we unfortunately cannot guarantee security of the data collected at all times.

SALE OR TRANSFER OF DATA

If we are involved in a sale or transfer of all or some of our business assets or operations via a share or asset transaction, your personal data may be transferred to the acquiring organization who will be required to take at least the same or higher standards of care in the treatment of your Personal Data. Should such a sale or transfer occur, if required by law, you will be informed about this and may withdraw your consent to or, as applicable, instigate any other legally available rights as detailed in the “Rights and Choices” section of this Policy with regards to the processing and use of your Personal Data by the transferee.

DATA RETENTION

We will retain Personal Data for as long as is necessary to carry out the purposes the Personal Data was collected for or for the period prescribed by applicable laws, whichever is longer. In considering how long to retain your Personal Data the following are considered:
