Carebook utilizes the personal information (including health information) of its clients in order to provide the services outlined within our Terms of Service agreement including preventive reminders, recommendations, notifications about health measures that may require attention, assessment of health risks and other functions.

How Carebook uses or discloses your personal information:
In order to provide services to you, Carebook is required to both collect and use your personal information (including health information).
Depending on the Carebook product you use, this information may come into your Carebook via authorized transfers from your electronic health record and labs, health questionnaires that you complete, information that you entered into your Carebook manually and/or as otherwise contemplated in the applicable Terms of Services.
Carebook only discloses your personal information: (i) to healthcare providers or other users that you have explicitly authorized and consented to within the Carebook application; (ii) to Carebook’s third party service providers who perform services on our behalf (such as our data hosting provider); (iii) to other third parties identified in the applicable Terms of Service; and (iv) to the extent required by law.
Carebook will only use your personal information for the purposes of providing you the applicable Carebook services and for any other purposes identified in the applicable Terms of Service. Please note that Carebook may take personal information collected through the Carebook application and anonymize it (“Anonymized Data”). Anonymized Data is not personal information and does not under any circumstances identify you. Carebook’s use and disclosure of Anonymized Data is not subject to the terms of this privacy notice and Carebook may use and disclose Anonymized Data for a number of different purposes including, without limitation, in connection with research in prevention, chronic disease management, and other wellness initiatives and to design wellness and health management programs.
One of the services of Carebook is the ability to receive notifications.

As a client of Carebook, you have rights to request a copy of your information as it exists within the Carebook system as well as request any corrections to your information. Should you make a request of this nature, Carebook is committed to responding within a 30-day period. Where information came to Carebook from another source (such as the electronic medical record or connected devices etc.), all data corrections may need to be performed in the source application. Carebook will help you to identify the source of information, but cannot represent you in communications with the third party.
