1.  Data FocilMed May Collect

We collect two types of data and information from our users: Non-Personal Information and Personal Information. 

  • Non-Personal Information: One type of information is non-identifiable web usage information, such as information on areas of our website that you navigate (“Non-Personal Information”) which we collect through your use of the Service.  Non-Personal Information that we collect includes information about your browser type, referring and exit pages and URLs, visit date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, the actions you performed, and other information about how you move around our website. Non-Personal Information may be collected using various technologies, such as web beacons and/or third party web analytic tools, to analyze website traffic.  We aggregate Non-Personal Information to better understand how visitors use our webpages and to improve it.   
  • Personal Information: The second type of information we collect is individually identifiable information, which is data that includes personal identifiers like your name, email address, certain health data, internet protocol (IP) address, and other data that could reasonably be used to identify you (“Personal Information”).  

FocilMed may collect Personal Information from you in any of the situations below:  

  • Email newsletters.  FocilMed offers email newsletters to its registered users. We will use your email address to send you only the specific newsletter(s) that you signed up for. If you want to update your email address or stop receiving a newsletter, follow the procedures to unsubscribe at the bottom of any newsletter we send you. 
  • You contact FocilMed. If you contact FocilMed, we will use the contact information you provide, along with the content of your inquiry, so that we can assist you and improve the Service.  
  • Surveys and User Research.  FocilMed conducts email and web-delivered surveys from time to time, to gather information about our users and sites. Taking these surveys and polls is entirely optional. You have no obligation to respond to them. We share only the aggregate results of these surveys, not Personal Information, with our partners to help them better understand our Service and monitor the reach of our webpages. 
  • Cookies.  A “cookie” is a piece of information (a file) that a website transfers to a user’s computer or device for recordkeeping purposes. The use of cookies is common on the Internet. The process we use to track use of our websites involves cookies. Cookies also enable us to measure aggregate (total) usage and traffic to the FocilMed site. This aids us in producing content that best meets our users’ preferences. To implement new services, we may use other types of cookies as well. We also may use cookies to understand better what parts of the FocilMed site you like best. You may configure your browser to reject cookies, but this may interfere with some functionality of the FocilMed site.
2.  How FocilMed Shares Your Information

Personal Information.  We share Personal Information we collect with third parties in the following circumstances: 

  • We share Personal Information with anyone with whom you voluntarily choose to share your Personal Information, including health care providers. 
  • We share Personal Information if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, valid legal process (e.g., subpoena or court order), or to respond to lawful governmental or public authority requests, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements; to enforce our Terms of Service; and/or to protect the rights, property, or safety of FocilMed, its employees, or others, in all cases consistent with applicable law. 
  • We may disclose your Personal Information in connection with the sale, merger, bankruptcy, sale of assets or reorganization of FocilMed. We will notify you if a different company will receive your Personal Information, and the terms of this Privacy Policy will apply to your data as transferred to the new entity. 

Non-Personal Information.  We share Non-Personal Information in the following circumstances: 

  • FocilMed may anonymize Personal Information so that it no longer identifies you and may share it with third parties in a variety of ways, such as by providing reports containing aggregated data that does not identify you to our partners to help them better understand our Service and analyze the reach of our webpages.
3.  How You May Modify or Remove Your Data

If and when you choose to deactivate your App account or if your account is canceled, your Personal Information will be removed from your account within 7 business days. FocilMed may use Non-Personal Information that does not identify you during the time your account is active and after you deactivate your account as described in this Privacy Policy.  For other data that you provide to FocilMed, such as when you submit a website inquiry to FocilMed or sign up to receive email newsletters, you may contact FocilMed at [email protected] if you want to request that any such data be modified or removed.

4.  Opting Out of Receiving Emails and Notifications from FocilMed

You may opt out of receiving non-service-related communications, including email newsletters, as noted above, by unsubscribing from such communications.  Regarding service-related communications from FocilMed for those who have registered to use the App or signed up for another FocilMed service, you may continue to receive such communications if FocilMed believes they are necessary for your use of the particular service. 

5.  Security of Your Data

FocilMed implements physical, technical, administrative and organizational security measures to maintain the security of your data and protect against unauthorized access. FocilMed provides privacy and security training to its employees who access Personal Information as part of their job function. FocilMed also ensures that third parties with whom it shares Personal Information agree to implement security measures similar to those used by FocilMed.  Keep in mind that internet transmissions are never completely secure or error-free. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. If you have signed up for a FocilMed service such as the App, never share your password to access such services, and notify us promptly if you believe your password security has been breached. Remember to logout of such services if you access them on a non-trusted device (for example, a public computer). We strongly urge you to employ security features, such as two-factor authentication, on any device or platform you use to access any aspect of FocilMed’s Service.

6.  International Users

If you are using the Service from a country other than the United States, your communication with us will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries. Specific legal requirements relating to transfer of personal information is not the same in all countries. Regardless of location of our subscribers, we will take the security measures described in this Privacy Policy in an effort to keep your information secure.

7.  Do Not Track Signals
