Effective Date: 20170402
This Privacy Statement (this "Statement") describes the type of information that Healthcare Services Platform Consortium, Inc. ("HSPC" or "we") collects through your use of our social media pages and software and application development platforms, including http://www.developers.hspconsortium.org/ and https://sandbox.hspconsortium.org (collectively, the "Platforms"). This Statement does not apply to information collected about you through any other means, including information collected by third parties or through non-electronic or offline means.
This Statement covers:
By accessing or using the Platforms, or by clicking accept or agree when you register to use the Platforms, you consent to our use of your personal information as described in this Statement. This Statement may change from time to time. Your continued use of the Platforms after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the Statement periodically for updates.
This Statement is part of, and is governed by, the HSPC Terms of Service.
We collect information from you in two ways. First, you provide us with certain information when you register for and use our Platforms. Second, we collect certain information automatically as you interact with our Platforms.
We may collect personal information from you when you register as a user or for events, provide comments and suggestions, sign up for newsletters, interact with us on our social media channels, order products, submit content or send us feedback. If you do not want us to collect this information, please do not provide it. We directly collect the following types of information that you provide to us:
Information that may be collected by cookies and web beacons when you use the Platforms may include, without limitation:
You can delete cookie files from your hard drive, or avoid them altogether, by configuring your browser to reject them or to notify you when a cookie is being placed on your hard drive. Not all features of the Platforms will function as intended if you reject cookies. You can read more about this automatic data collection in Section D(3) below. The Platforms do not collect real-time information about the location of your devices.
The information we collect automatically is statistical information and may include personal information, or we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties. If you do not want us to collect this information, please do not use the Platforms.
Your Internet browser and mobile device may allow you to adjust your browser settings so that "do not track" requests are sent to the websites you visit. HSPC does not respond to "do not track" signals at this time.
We may use information collected from or about you for any of the following purposes:
We may share the personal information we collect in connection with the Platforms with third parties, as described below:
If you post comments, images, and other content to a project page, that information (associated with your user name) will be publicly viewable.
We may share your personal information with our third-party distributors, vendors, suppliers and other service providers who provide services to us or on our behalf, such as operating and supporting the Platforms and performing marketing or consulting services. These third-party service providers may use your personal information for their own marketing purposes.
We may also share your personal information with third parties who conduct marketing studies and data analytics. These third parties may combine your information with the information of other consumers for purposes of conducting these studies and/or analytics. For example, we use certain Google products to track and report activity within the Platforms:
Note that Google prohibits the transmission of personal information to Google, so we will not transmit any such information to Google. You have choices regarding Google’s use of your information:
We may share some or all of your information with our subsidiaries and corporate affiliates, joint ventures, or other companies that are or may become under common control with us. We will require these entities to comply with the terms of this Statement with regard to their use of your information.
When you use your HSPC account to sign in to third-party sites or to access third-party services (e.g., use plugins for Facebook, Google +, and Twitter), both HSPC and those third-party sites may collect information and use it to recommend content specifically tailored to you.
We may disclose your information to government authorities or third parties if:
We may share aggregate or de-identified information without restriction. While this information will not identify you personally, in some instances third parties may be able to combine this aggregate information with other data they have about you, or that they receive from other third parties, in a manner that allows them to identify you personally.
We provide the opportunity to opt out of receiving communications from us and our partners at the point where we request information about you. In addition, you may unsubscribe or opt out of receiving communications from us by clicking the unsubscribe link on any email marketing communication you receive.
We have implemented commercially reasonable measures designed to secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. However, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. You acknowledge that: (a) the limitations of the Internet are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of information and data exchanged between you and us cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party. HSPC has no responsibility or liability for the security of information transmitted via the Internet.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to the Platforms, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
You may have the right to access the personal information we collect about you. You may also have the right to correct any errors contained in that information. For details, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can review and change your contact information by logging into the Platforms and visiting your account profile page.
The Platforms are not intended for users younger than 18. We do not knowingly collect contact information from children under the age of 18 without verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that a visitor under the age of 18 has submitted personal information without verifiable parental consent, we will remove his or her information from our files.
The Platforms are directed to users located in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States and choose to use the Platforms or provide your information to us, you should be aware that we may transfer your information to the United States and process it there. The privacy laws in the United States may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. Your consent to this Statement followed by your submission of information to us through or in connection with the Platforms represents your agreement to the transfer of your information to the United States.
We may change this Statement from time to time. If we decide to make a material change in this Statement, we will post it on this page. Your continued use of the Platforms after the posting of changes to this Statement will mean you accept these changes. In some cases, we may attempt to contact you through an email or other address you have provided, so we can give you choices about our using your information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection. If we make any material changes in our privacy practices that affect your personal information that is already in our possession, we will apply those changes to that older information only with your consent or as otherwise allowed by law.
If you have any questions about this Statement or our use of the information we collect from you in connection with the Platforms, email us at email@example.com..

Access to the Platforms is provided to you solely for the purpose of developing healthcare software applications.

You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your user name or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information. Your user ID and password uniquely identify you and you may not allow others to use your user ID and password. You must safeguard your password. You must lock your computer or logout of the Platforms when leaving your computer unattended. We attribute all actions taken under your credentials to you.

HSPC makes no warranties, express, implied or statutory, as to the suitability, accuracy or reliability of any User Generated Apps. Nonetheless, HSPC reserves the right to prevent you from submitting User Generated Apps and to edit, restrict or remove any User Generated App for any reason at any time. You agree that HSPC shall have no liability if we prevent, in our sole discretion, your User Generated App from being submitted, or we edit, restrict or remove it.
We have the right to: (i) remove or refuse to post any User Contributions and User Generated Apps for any or no reason in our sole discretion; (ii) disclose your identity or other information about you to any third party who claims that material posted by you violates their rights, including their intellectual property rights or their right to privacy; (iii) take appropriate legal action, including without limitation, referral to law enforcement, for any illegal or unauthorized use of the Platforms; (iv) terminate or suspend your access to all or part of the Platforms for any reason.
Without limiting the foregoing, we have the right to fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any materials on or through the Platforms.
However, we do not undertake to review all material before it is posted on the Platforms, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted. Accordingly, we assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications or content provided by any user or third party. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this section.
