Generally, individuals are able to visit our Website without disclosing personal information. Data is collected from the Website only to the extent technically necessary. For example, in some cases we may recognize personal data like the IP address as well as non-personal data like the name of the visitor’s Internet service provider, the website from which the visitor came to our Website, the pages that the visitor views on the Website, and what the visitor clicks on any given page. This data could possibly identify an individual, but the Company does not use it to do so.

Cookies: We may use cookies and similar tracking technologies to personalize your experience on our Website. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you elect to opt out of accepting cookies from our site, you can set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our Services.  Our servers may also automatically record information created by your use of our Website and we may use visitor logs to compile anonymous statistics. This aggregate information is collected sitewide and contains anonymous website statistics and is not considered personal information.

“Do Not Track”: Some browsers incorporate a "Do Not Track" (DNT) or similar feature that signals to digital services that a visitor doesn’t want to have their online activity tracked. Because there is not yet an accepted standard for how to respond to DNT signals, we and our service providers (like many digital service operators) do not respond to DNT signals.


Data is collected from the Mobile App only to the extent technically necessary to render Services. For example, in some cases we may recognize personal data like device ID, IP address, as well as non-personal data like the name of the visitor’s Internet service provider, the pages that the visitor views in the Mobile App, and what the user clicks on any given page. This data could possibly identify an individual, but the Company does not use it to do so.

We may also collect the data referenced above under "Personal Data Collected from Participants" from the Mobile App. Personal and sensitive data relating to COVID-19 may be collected from the Mobile App to directly support the public health emergency, and may only be used to support COVID-19-related efforts or epidemiological research.

Barcodes: We may use barcodes to uniquely identify a user and to transmit a user’s identity from one user to another user where the barcode is intentionally shared from one user’s Mobile App display and read by another user’s mobile camera, to be used in a supervisory capacity to confirm that certain of the PII from the former user meets the criteria for physical interaction monitored by the second user, via another instance of the Mobile App.  

Camera: The camera is used in certain situations as a barcode scanner to pull up patient records. This choice to utilize the camera is yours, and is not required to use the application.


Accessing and Saving Data from your Mobile Device: Our Mobile App will ask for your permission to use images from your photo gallery or PDF files from your device storage to read and write data to external storage for uploading your government-issued ID, insurance documentation, and vaccine records to our Platform. In the case that you choose to upload your information to our Platform, the Mobile App will ask for your consent to read and write your data. This choice is yours, and is not required to use the application.



If you apply for a position with us, we may collect your resume, contact information, employment and education history, and other related information. We may also receive information from references you identify and other third parties (for instance, background checks where permitted by applicable law).


We may collect personal information that you voluntarily provide to use, such as inquiries through our Platforms, information you provide about your business, etc., and is used only for the purpose of addressing the request received. In cases where social media services may be used, we do not have any influence on the storage and processing of providing personal information via the respective social media service. You are encouraged to review those privacy policies before sending us personal information via a social media service.

In addition, when you are covered by insurance, it may be necessary to share the type of Services requested and the date of completion, in accordance with the requirements of your insurer. Also, depending on what type of Services requested, it may be necessary to share the material collected with contracted laboratories, always respecting your privacy - only strictly necessary data may be shared and exclusively as needed for the performance of the Service.

We may share your personal information with our service providers, business partners, or other vendors that help us provide our Services to you.

  • Supervisory personnel. With your permission you may share relevant PII with supervisory personnel via a technical exchange between Mobile Apps enabled with a physical barcode scan, to confirm that certain of the PII from the sharing user meets the criteria for physical interaction monitored by the receiving user.  The minimum PII is transmitted for the receiving user to make a determination of whether further physical interaction is appropriate.
