THIS NOTICE DESCRIBES HOW MEDICAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU MAY BE USED AND DISCLOSED AND HOW YOU CAN GET ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION. PLEASE REVIEW IT CAREFULLY.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal program that requires that all medical and dental records and other individually identifiable health information used or disclosed by us in any form, whether electronically, on paper or orally, are kept properly confidential. This Act gives you, the patient, significant new rights to understand and control how your health information is used. HIPAA provides penalties for covered entities that misuse Protected Health Information (PHI).
This Notice of Privacy Practices describes how we may use and disclose your Protected Health Information (PHI) to carry out treatment, payment or health care operations (TPO) and for other purposes that are permitted or required by law. It also describes your rights to access and control your protected health information. “Protected health information” is information about you, including demographic information, that may identify you and that relates to your past, present or future physical or mental health or condition and related health care services.
CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT DISCLOSURES
Effective as of January 1, 2020
This Statement does not apply to our employees, job applicants, independent contractors, vendors, or business partners, and may not apply to the employees or independent contractors of our clients. This Statement uses certain words that are defined by California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 and the regulations that implement it (the “CCPA”).
We also share with you that there may be laws that require or permit us to collect, use, and/or sell personal information for uses beyond what is in this notice.
We may have collected and will continue to collect the following categories of personal information about you:
We may have used and may continue to use your personal information for the following business purposes:
Also, any reviews or other content that you submit to third-parties about our Site or Services are assumed to be intended for public display and are therefore viewable by the public and may appear on our Site, including your name, any photos the review platform permits you to share, and any other personal information you divulge.
We may collect personal information from the following categories of sources:
Not all information collected may be personal information, and some cookies are necessary to use different functionalities of our Site. The personal information collected may include information about your computer and internet connection, like IP address, operating system, and browser type.
Subject to certain limitations, you have certain choices regarding your personal information:
You may exercise your California privacy rights under the CCPA, to submit an access or deletion request, or opt out of the sale of your personal information, by calling us at 888-330-3017.
If you do not have an account used to comment on our blog, use our photo gallery feature, or have contacted us previously through a form on our Site, we will not have enough information about you to verify your Right to Know and Right to Delete requests, as we do not keep sufficient information necessary to reidentify and link you to a prior visit our website where data may have been collected. As such, we will be unable to verify and honor your requests.
Wave will not sell your personal information without your prior consent.
Under the CCPA, a “sale” means providing to a third-party personal information for valuable consideration. It does not necessarily mean money was exchanged for the transfer of personal information. Due to the ambiguities in the CCPA, we will continue to evaluate some of our third-party relationships as we wait for final regulations and guidance. We provide Usage Data to advertising partners, which enables us to participate in analytics and conversion tracking systems. We will continue to update our business practices as regulatory guidance becomes available and provides clarity on what constitutes a sale transaction, particularly in the advertising ecosystem.
We reserve the right to change or modify this privacy notice and any of our Services at any time and any changes will be effective upon being posted unless we advise otherwise. By continuing to use the Services after changes are made to this privacy notice, you agree to such changes. We encourage you to periodically review this privacy notice for the latest information on our privacy practices.
