INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you interact with us through your use of the Website, the BrainCheck App, the Applications and the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:
HIPAA Compliance: BrainCheck associates all undergo privacy training in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) on an annual basis. Additionally, BrainCheck maintains standard physical and electronic procedural safeguards that limit access to our employees (or entities working on our behalf with confidentiality agreements in place). All personal data and personal health information that is collected through the BrainCheck App is maintained on HIPAA compliant servers.
When BrainCheck acts as a Business Associate for a Covered Entity, we secure Personal Health Information in accordance with the requirements of HIPAA.
Non-Identifiable Data: When you utilize the Website, the BrainCheck App, the applications and the Services, we may receive certain personally non-identifiable information about your use of the Services. Such information, which may be collected passively using various technologies, or via your use of the Services, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. We may store such information ourselves or it may be included in databases or on servers owned and maintained by our affiliates or Service Providers. We may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of users of our Services, the number of visitors to our Website, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.
Aggregated Personal Data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, we may conduct research on our end user’s demographics, interests, responses, and behavior based on the Personal Data, test results and other information provided to us. We also may collect and use population data from use of the Services to improve our technology and its underlying algorithms. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and we may share this aggregated data with our affiliates and Service Providers. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe the Services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Our Use of Pixels: Pixels are site instrumentation tools that help us to determine, for instance, whether a page has been viewed or not and, if so, how many times. Emails or electronic newsletters we send may use tools (e.g., pixel tags or web beacons) to gather email metrics and information to improve the reader’s experience such as how many of the emails are opened, if they were printed or forwarded, the type of device (e.g., mobile or PC) from which they were opened, and the associated member account details, which include name, city, state, and county associated with the applicable IP address. In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a webpage, including an ad banner, can act as a web beacon.
