Collection, Use and Disclosure of Information
TechLink Health or a third party vendor on behalf of TechLink Health may automatically collect information while using the Platform. We may collect such information by tracking, or asking a third party vendor to track, your click-stream activity when such information is not tied to a user ID through the use of "cookie" technology or by tracking internet protocol (IP) addresses.
Because we want our Platform to better serve users, we collect some basic and typical information about users and their devices. This information is used to continuously enhance our Platform and to better serve our users' needs.
The Information collected from users of the Platform may be shared with our suppliers and vendors and used in the aggregate to create analysis to for technical trouble shooting, developing product enhancements, performance analysis, and other applicable use cases, such as:
To provide and maintain our Service.

To detect, prevent and address technical issues.
To provide you with news, special offers and general information about other goods, services and events which we offer that are similar to those that you have already purchased or enquired about unless you have opted not to receive such information.
By continuing to use the Platform, you hereby consent to the use and disclosure of your Information as set forth in this agreement. We seek to protect your Personal Data from unauthorized access, use and disclosure using appropriate physical, technical, organizational and administrative security measures based on the type of Personal Data and how we are processing that data.

HIPAA and Personal Health Information
Certain demographic, health and/or health-related information that TechLink Health collects about Consumers as part of providing the Services to our Clients may be considered “protected health information” or “PHI” under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”). Specifically, when TechLink Health, acting as a “Business Associate” (as such term is defined in HIPAA) receives identifiable information about a Consumer from or on behalf of a Client, or Customer’s doctor, dentist, or other healthcare specialist, professional, provider, organization or agent or affiliate thereof (collectively, “Healthcare Providers”), this information is considered PHI. Personal data that a Consumer provides to TechLink Health outside of the foregoing context is not PHI. For example, when you provide information directly to us, such as when creating an account or using our interactive tools and services, searching for Healthcare Providers or available appointments with Healthcare Providers, and completing medical history forms (“Medical History Forms”); or when you voluntarily provide information in free-form text boxes through the Services or through responses to surveys and questionnaires, or post reviews; or when you send us an email or otherwise contact us, that information is not PHI.
HIPAA provides specific protections for the privacy and security of PHI and restricts how PHI is used and disclosed. TechLink Health may only use and disclose PHI in the ways permitted by a Consumer’s Healthcare Provider(s) or authorized by a Consumer.
Like many companies, we use "cookies" to help you better navigate the Platform. A "cookie" is a small piece of information sent by TechLink Health's web-based applications that are stored by your web browser on your computer's hard drive. Cookies enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular Website. The cookies do not contain any identifiable information and cannot profile your system or collect information from your hard drive. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can set your browser to refuse them or to alert you when they are being sent.
