Inquiries About Health Information

We do not directly collect, use or disclose personal health information (PHI) that is protected by law. We provide technical services for companies who provide services to individuals, healthcare professionals, companies and institutions. If you have an inquiry about the collection, use or disclosure of PHI by one of our customers, please contact them directly.

Personal Information We Collect

We collect your personal information in the course of providing MedStack Offerings to you.

Here are the types of information we gather:

  • Information You Give Us: We collect any information you provide in relation to MedStack Offerings.
  • Automatic Information: We automatically collect certain types of information when you interact with MedStack Offerings.
  • Information from Other Sources: We might collect information about you from other sources, including service providers, partners, and publicly available sources.

How We Use Personal Information

We use your personal information to operate, provide, and improve MedStack Offerings. Our purposes for using personal information include:

  • Provide MedStack Offerings: We use your personal information to provide and deliver MedStack Offerings and process transactions related to MedStack Offerings, including registrations, subscriptions, purchases, and payments.
  • Measure, Support, and Improve MedStack Offerings: We use your personal information to measure use of, analyze performance of, fix errors in, provide support for, improve, and develop MedStack Offerings.
  • Comply with Legal Obligations: In certain cases, we have a legal obligation to collect, use, or retain your personal information. For example, we collect contact information required for compliance notifications.
  • Communicate with You: We use your personal information to communicate with you in relation to MedStack Offerings via different channels (e.g., by phone, email, chat) and to respond to your requests.
  • Marketing: We use your personal information to market and promote MedStack Offerings. For example, we might show interest-based advertising on other websites.

To enable our systems to recognize your browser or device and to provide MedStack Offerings, we use cookies. For more information about cookies and how we use them, please read our Cookies Notice.

How We Share Personal Information

Information about our customers is an important part of our business. MedStack does not sell customers’ personal information to others. We share personal information only as described below:

  • Transactions Involving Third Parties: We make available to you services, software, and content provided by third parties for use on or through MedStack Offerings. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we share information related to those transactions with that third party.
  • Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include: sending communications, processing payments, analysing data, providing marketing and sales assistance (including advertising and event management), conducting customer relationship management. These third party service providers have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Further, they must process that information in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by applicable data protection law.
  • Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or services. In such transactions, personal information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the individual consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that AWS or substantially all of its assets are acquired, your information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
  • Protection of Us and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce or apply our terms and other agreements, or protect the rights, property, or security of MedStack, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud prevention and detection and credit risk reduction.
  • At Your Option: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when personal information about you might be shared with third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

Location of Personal Information

We are located in Canada, and our affiliated companies are located throughout the world. Depending on the scope of your interactions with MedStack Offerings, your personal information may be stored in or accessed from multiple countries, including Canada. Whenever we transfer personal information to other jurisdictions, we will ensure that the information is transferred in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by applicable data protection laws.

How We Secure Information

At MedStack, security is our highest priority. We design our systems with your security and privacy in mind.

  • We maintain a wide variety of compliance programs that validate our security controls.
  • We protect the security of your information during transmission to or from MedStack websites, applications, products, or services by using encryption protocols and software.
  • We delegate handling credit card data to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) providers.
  • We implement reasonable measures designed to secure information from accidental loss and from unauthorised access, use, alteration and disclosure.
  • We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage, and disclosure of personal information. Our security procedures mean that we may request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.
