SECTION 1: What personal information we collect
Personal information is any information that can be used to identify you. Mindful Care (and the vendors and other third parties we use to perform services on our behalf) collects, receives, and develops several categories of personal information about you depending on the nature of your interactions with us.
We collect Contact Information and Other Identifiers. For example, we might collect your name, email address, phone number, mailing address, your Platform login ID, or IP address.
We collect Commercial, Customer Records, and Preference Information. For example, we may collect information about which types of services you’re interested in, your purchasing tendencies and order history (such as the therapy sessions you purchase), your participation in promotional events or other programs, and your preferences. We also collect your comments, reviews, questions, and suggestions that you submit to us.
We collect Device, Internet and Network Activity Information. When you use or access the Platform, we may collect information about the browser, device and operating system you are using, device identifiers, MAC address, and your IP address. We might collect information about the site you came from, or the site you visit when you leave us. We may collect site interaction information and other electronic communications and content from your use of the Platform (such as the date, time, and location of your visit, content entry, mouse movements, screen captures, what areas of the Platform you visit and for how long, what search terms or other data you enter, and what services, content, and links you view and click on). We may also embed technologies (which may include, for example, web beacons, tags, scripts, and pixels) in the emails and other communications we or our vendors send to you to help us understand how you interact with those messages, such as whether and when you opened a message or clicked on any content within the message. We may engage or otherwise permit other parties to also collect information in these ways.
We collect Location Information. We collect information about your location when you use the Platform, using your IP address. We may also collect your zip code, state of residence, and mailing address, such as when you search for providers near you. With your consent, we may collect precise location data through our mobile applications.
We collect Demographic Information. For example, we may collect your date of birth, gender, race, ethnicity, medical history, disability status, and similar information to tailor our therapeutic services to you and improve the quality of such services.
We collect Billing and Payment Information. We, or our vendors, may collect information about your medical insurance for billing purposes. We or our vendors may also collect your credit or debit card information, or other payment details if you make a payment for services. Click here for our payment terms of service.
We collect Employment-Related Information. In conjunction with certain events and promotions, we may collect your company name and job title. If you apply for a job, we collect information you submit as part of your application and resume. This might include your work experience and previous employment, the job(s) you are interested in, and your certifications. We may also conduct a credit check, background check, and/or employment verification to the extent permitted by applicable law.
We collect Audio/Visual Information. For example, we may record video or audio during therapy sessions with your prior consent.
We collect and develop Inferences. Using the other pieces of personal information collected about you, we may draw inferences about you, reflecting what we believe to be your preferences, characteristics, predispositions, and attitudes.
We collect Information You Submit or Provide. For example, we collect feedback and any other information you provide when you contact us.
SECTION 2: How we use personal information
We use the above-referenced categories of personal information for the following purposes:
We use information to provide you with services and fulfill and process transactions.
We use information for marketing purposes. For example, we might use personal information to provide you with information and updates about our services, promotions, special offers, and new services. These might be our own offers or products, or third-party offers or products we think you might find interesting. We may use information to serve you content and ads that we think you may be interested in. To learn about your choices for these communications, read Section 5 below.
We use information to test, analyze, develop, improve, and provide the Platform and our services. For example, we may use your information to make improvements to the functionality or operation of the Platform. We might use your information to customize your experience with us and to conduct research and analysis. We might use your information and feedback to change or improve the services we offer. We might conduct research with your information to assist with our overall business planning and operations.
We use information to comply with our obligations, administer the Platform, and for internal operations. For example, we use personal information to administer the Platform, such as troubleshooting, data analysis, and testing.
We use information for security, safety, and due diligence purposes. For example, we may use personal information to protect our company, customers, and business partners and their respective personnel. We may also use personal information to protect the Platform, as well as to detect and investigate activities that may be fraudulent, or otherwise illegal or prohibited (such as cyber-attacks, spam or phishing attempts, or fraudulent transactions or activities). We may also use information to conduct background, employment, and credit checks.
We use information for hiring purposes. If you submit a job application, we will use any related information to review your job applications and contact you about employment opportunities. If you choose to voluntarily submit your ethnicity, gender, disability status, and/or veteran status in connection with a job application, we will use that information for statistical tracking purposes (not for hiring decisions), in accordance with applicable law.
We use information as otherwise required or permitted by law, or as we may notify you. For instance, we use your information for general compliance purposes and to operate our business on a day-to-day basis.
We may use personal information to create deidentified or aggregated data which does not identify you or any other individual from whom such information is derived, or from which your identity cannot reasonably be ascertained. We may use and disclose this anonymous or aggregated data as we choose, including without limitation for commercial and/or research-based purposes.
SECTION 3: Sources from which we collect personal information
We and our vendors collect personal information about you from various sources, directly and indirectly, including from the following sources:
We collect personal information directly from you. For example, we collect information if you create an account, participate in a promotion or other program, contact us, sign up for our communications, send feedback, make a request, or complete a survey. We also collect and receive information if you request an appointment through one of our providers, fill out patient forms, or pay for services. We also obtain information, including health-related information, that you reveal to your therapist during sessions on the Platform. If you apply for a job, we will collect any information you provide with your application.
We receive personal information from vendors we hire to work on our behalf. For example, vendors that host or maintain the Platform, process payments, or send promotional emails for us may give us information. Our employment and recruiting vendors also give us information. Our marketing agencies, advertising technology vendors, and analytics providers may also provide us with information.
We receive information about you from other sources. Other parties may give us personal information about you. These other parties might also include business and marketing partners, network providers, and social media platforms that give us information they have collected either directly or indirectly from you. In the context of job applications, we may also receive personal information from your current or past employers, background check providers, and record verification providers, State regulatory bodies, and if you choose to import your information from a job network or social network, we will get information from those networks as well.
We combine information. We may combine information that we have collected offline with information we collect online. Or, we may combine information we get from another party with information we already have. We may also aggregate your information with other individuals’ information to understand preferences and trends over time, including without limitation for commercial and research-based purposes.
SECTION 4: We share personal information with other parties
We share your personal information with our business partners and for marketing purposes. We might share information with third parties who co-sponsor a promotion or promote our services. Some of these partners may send you information about products or services by mail or email. They may share your information with other third parties. We may also share information with companies that help us with our marketing efforts, including social media platforms, advertising networks, and ad tech companies. For example, we may share email addresses or other contact information with social media platforms so they can serve our advertising to you on their platform. We may share information with other parties so that they can provide you with information and marketing messages about products or services that may interest you. These parties may use the information for their own marketing purposes or the marketing purposes of others. Personal information received by our partners and other parties may also be subject to their privacy policies.
We will share your personal information for safety and security purposes, if we think we have to in order to comply with the law, or to protect ourselves, our customers, and others. We may share any or all personal information to respond to a court order or subpoena. We may also share any or all personal information if a government agency or investigatory body requests it. We might share your personal information in order to enforce our agreements and to protect our rights and/or the rights of others. We might share your personal information when we are investigating potential fraud.
We may share your personal information with a successor to all or part of our business. If part of our business (including any of our affiliates, divisions, and business units) is acquired by a third party, we may include personal information as part of that transaction and/or the negotiation and diligence related to that transaction, which may include some or all categories of your personal information. We may also share your personal information if there is a change to our corporate structure. We may also share your information with others as they conduct diligence.
We may share personal information for other reasons we may describe to you from time to time or as permitted or required by law.
