Notice of Privacy Practices
Remedly’s Commitment to Your Privacy
Remedly is dedicated to maintaining the privacy of your personally identifiable information, including your protected health information (collectively, “PII”). PII includes information about you that may be used to identify you (such as your name or address) and that relates to (a) your past, present or future physical or mental health or condition, (b) the provision of health care to you or (c) your past, present or future payment for the provision of health care. In conducting its business, Remedly may receive and create records containing your PII. Remedly is required by law to maintain the privacy of your PII and to provide you with notice of its legal duties and privacy practices with respect to your PII.
Please note: The laws and regulations in different countries impose different (and even conflicting) requirements on the Internet and data protection. The servers that make the Website available worldwide are located in the United States. All matters relating to the Website are governed by the laws of the state of California, without reference to its conflicts of law rules that would result in the application of the laws of another jurisdiction. Please note that any information you provide will be transferred to the United States, and by using the Website or providing Remedly your PII, you authorize this transfer.
When Remedly collects PII directly from you, it follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the submitted PII and meets HIPAA privacy standards. Remedly uses firewall barriers, SSL 256-bit high-grade encryption techniques and authentication procedures, among others, to maintain the security of your online session and to protect user accounts and systems from unauthorized access. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. If you have any questions about security on the Website, you can contact Remedly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
