Information Collection. Nimbus collects certain information about you (if you are over the age of eighteen (18)) through our interactions with you and through your use of our Website and Services. The information we collect includes Protected Health Information (“PHI”) which is protected by our Protected Health Information Notice of Privacy Practices. In addition, we may collect other personally identifiable information relevant to providing and billing (e.g., credit card) for our Services. We may also collect information about the type of device you use when accessing our Services, your device’s location based on the IP address used and how frequently you visit our Website. Nimbus uses tools such as cookies, Web Beacons, third-party website analytics and mobile device identifiers. Finally, we may obtain information about you from third-parties, such as marketers, partners and researchers.
Using and Sharing Your Information. We use and disclose your PHI to provide you with care, run our healthcare operations, to collect payments, and to comply with regulations.
The information we collect from you or about you will be used to contact or notify you about our Services or promotions based on your marketing preferences, to enhance our Services for you and other users, and to maintain Website security. We may share your information with third-parties in order to facilitate payment for our Services, maintain, provide, and improve our Services, or for marketing purposes (if you consent).
Security. Nimbus takes reasonable steps to keep the information you provide safe and secure; however, no data transmission is ever completely secure and we can’t guarantee that our systems and your PHI won’t ever be hacked or otherwise compromised by unauthorized third parties. You acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk. Remember, emails and SMS/text messages we send you aren’t secure because they aren’t encrypted.
We use your email address to update you on the status of a prescription or to alert you that there is a message waiting you for in the App or Website, to send you emails asking for feedback on your experience of using the service, to send you emails to notify you that you may be due for a refill, and to send you emails if you create an account but fail to complete a visit. We will send you emails to notify you of the services we provide. We will securely share your email address and first name with third-party email platforms that helps us send you these emails.
We use your telephone number to call you if we have any questions, to leave you voice messages if you don’t answer when we call you, and to ask for feedback on your experience of using the service. We also use your telephone number to send you SMS/text message notifications. We may send you SMS/text notifications to update you on the progress of your visit or laboratory order. If you ask us to organize for a partner pharmacy to mail your medicines, we may telephone you to take payment on behalf of the pharmacy and we may SMS/text message you to let you know that you have refills available. We share your telephone number with the company that helps us send SMS/text messages. If we need to telephone you, we share your telephone number with our telecommunication provider.
To provide treatment and to run our healthcare operations and to take payment, we share your PHI with selected organizations that provide us with services. As examples, we share your PHI with organizations that help us run and maintain the technology and security infrastructure that supports the App and Website and the care we provide. We also may share your health information with medical staff who help ensure that we are providing a service that meets the appropriate standard of care.
We share your PHI and payment details with our trusted online payment processors. If you choose to save your payment details to make future payments easier, our trusted payment provider will store them on our behalf. Furthermore, if you request delivery of your medicines by mail from a third-party pharmacy, then our trusted payment processor will store your card details to make future payments more convenient.
We share your PHI with the pharmacy of your choice if we write you a prescription and with the companies who we use to send prescriptions electronically. If you request that we coordinate with any partner mail-order pharmacy to deliver your medicines, then we’ll share your PHI and send your prescription to as your request.
If we order laboratory tests for you, we share your PHI with the laboratory company that runs the tests. If a laboratory test we order for you finds a ‘reportable’ infection, we may be required by law to share your PHI with your county’s health department.
We store information you provide us with whether or not you complete a visit. We take the same precautions over your data regardless of whether you complete a visit and keep all information as securely as your PHI.
We do not record video visits between our patients and our medical team. We may, however, capture a still image from the video and store that image in your medical record.
We may use your PHI to tell you about our other health-related products and services. We may share your PHI with a third-party if we merge, are acquired or transfer a majority of our assets.
We are unable to delete information from your medical record. At your request, we can de-activate your secure account so that you and others can no longer access it with your username and password.
There is a risk of storing PHI on your mobile device. When you use the App or Website, there is a risk that you will store unencrypted PHI on your mobile device. We take a variety of technical safeguards to make sure that your PHI does not leak onto your mobile device, but we can’t guarantee that these safeguards work in every instance.
HIPAA describes certain rights that individuals have over their Protected Health Information and that we model as best practices. All rights and authorized uses of your health information may be found in Nimbus’s Protected Health Information Notice of Privacy Practices located on our Website home page.
