Privacy Policy

Last Updated June 1, 2022

1. Introduction:

1.1 This Privacy Policy (this "Privacy Policy") informs you (or the entity on whose behalf you are using a Service) what Personal Information Avokaid, LLC ("Avokaid," "we," or "us") may collect, how Avokaid collects such Personal Information, how Avokaid uses such Personal Information in connection with the Services we provide to you or our customers (i.e., Providers as defined below), and your choices related to your Personal Information.
1.1.1 "Services" means Avokaid's products and services, such as our websites ("Sites"), electronic medical records systems, practice management systems, healthcare provider customer portals ("Provider Portals"), patient portals ("Patient Portals," collectively with Provider Portals, "Portals"), software and mobile applications for the preceding, etc.
1.2 In this Privacy Policy, we do not include Protected Health Information in the definition of Personal Information because, as discussed in Section 2, Protected Health Information has different treatment under HIPAA (as defined below), other applicable laws, and the Customer Documents (as defined below). Accordingly, because Protected Health Information is handled differently under the Customer Documents, if you are a patient of a Provider (as defined below), your Protected Health Information is subject to the Customer Documents and your Provider's terms of service and privacy practices.
1.3 This Privacy Policy applies wherever it is posted, and it is part of and incorporated into applicable Terms of Use Agreements ("Terms of Use") for the Sites, the Portals, and other Services, and into any applicable Terms and Conditions for our software and mobile applications ("Terms and Conditions"). Any terms capitalized herein but not defined shall have the meanings assigned to such terms in the applicable Terms of Use or Terms and Conditions. By visiting or using the Services or otherwise affirming the acceptance of an agreement into which this Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference, you acknowledge and agree to accept the practices described in this Privacy Policy regarding the collection, use, disclosure, and transfer of your Personal Information. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Services. This Privacy Policy is not a contract and does not create any contractual rights or obligations. Your use of the Services is governed by the applicable Terms of Use or Terms and Conditions of the respective Services.
1.4 Please note that some privacy rights and obligations may differ in certain locations based on local law, in which case Avokaid will comply with the local legal requirements. Avokaid reserves the right, at any time, to modify this Privacy Policy. If we make revisions that change how we collect, use, or share Personal Information, we will post those changes in this Privacy Policy. If we make material changes to our Privacy Policy, we may also notify you by other means prior to the changes taking effect, such as by posting a notice on our Site or sending you a notification. You should review this Privacy Policy periodically so that you keep up to date on our most current policies and practices. Avokaid will note the effective date of the latest version of our Privacy Policy at the beginning of this Privacy Policy.

2. The Personal Information We Collect:

2.1. When you access and use the Services, we may collect the following types of information:
2.1.1. "Personal Information" is information that identifies an individual or relates to an identifiable individual or household. The types of Personal Information collected and the uses thereof depend on the purposes for which we collect the Personal Information (e.g., whether you are a visitor to our Sites, a user of our Portals, or a customer of our Services).
2.1.2. "Protected Health Information" or "PHI" is individually identifiable health information that is protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, as amended, and its implementing regulations ("HIPAA").
2.1.3. "Usage Data" is information that we automatically collect about your use of the Services and includes the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, through web server logs, web beacons, cookies, and other similar tracking technologies, about the devices you use to access our Services, as well as information on how you interact with our Services. Usage Data may include the IP address of a device or internet service used to connect your device to the Internet and may provide information about your location; computer and connection information such as your browser type and version; operating system and platform; confirmation when you open an e-mail that we send you; purchase history; and the URLs which lead you to and around the Site including the date and time of access. Usage Data may overlap with Location Information. Usage Data is generally not Personal Information but may be in some instances.

3. The Personal Information We Collect:

3.1 Avokaid uses information collected from users of the Services to personalize and improve your visit and experience, to provide the Services to you or our customers, and for other purposes set out below. When you use the Services, Avokaid may collect Personal Information in the following ways described below.

3.4 Information from Other Sources: Avokaid may collect Personal Information from other sources such as the Internet and other publicly-available sources and databases, data aggregators, marketing companies, and other third parties, including sources from which you authorize us to obtain Personal Information about you on your behalf. If you authorize us to collect information from a third party, or if you authorize a third party to send us information, and you later decide that you no longer want us to obtain that information, you may need to contact the third-party source directly and request that they stop transmitting information to us.

4. Protected Health Information; Avokaid as a Business Associate:

4.1 Certain Services we provide to our customers or make available to their patients, such as the Portals, as well as certain support operations, involve access to, and the processing of, PHI. This PHI is provided to us pursuant to a service agreement, business associate agreement, or other documents with terms and conditions for the Portals (the "Customer Documents") that we have entered with our customers (health care providers or their firms, "Providers") that also govern our use of PHI of their patients provided by our Provider customers or their patient users.
4.1.1 This Privacy Policy supplements the Customer Documents. Avokaid only uses such PHI as a "business associate" of its Providers, who are "covered entities," in accordance with any instructions or restrictions provided to Avokaid by the Provider and in full compliance with the applicable provisions of HIPAA.
4.1.2 If you are a patient of a Provider, our use and disclosure of your Protected Health Information is governed by HIPAA and other applicable law and the Customer Documents with your Provider – not by this Privacy Policy. Your Provider's collection, use, disclosure, and transfer of such PHI are governed, in turn, by your Provider's terms and conditions and privacy practices between you and your Provider. Please submit all requests and questions related to your PHI directly to your Provider. We are not responsible for how our Provider customers treat PHI we collect on their behalf, and we recommend you review their own privacy policies.
4.1.3 Our Sites are generally not intended to collect or retain any PHI. Thus, sections of this Privacy Policy that discuss collection on the Sites do not apply to PHI, and we do not request, obtain, use or disclose any PHI through our Sites, such as
