We at Spire Health value keeping Your Personal Information confidential and using it solely in the context of Our mission to provide Our Services that gather information related to Your health in order to aid You and Your healthcare providers (“Providers”) in making informed decisions about Your care.
BECAUSE THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND TRANSMIT ON BEHALF OF OTHER ORGANIZATIONS MAY INCLUDE PROTECTED HEALTH INFORMATION, INCLUDING MEDICAL INFORMATION, OUR PRIVACY PRACTICES ARE INTENDED TO COMPLY WITH THE HEALTH INSURANCE PORTABILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY ACT (“HIPAA”). WE WILL MAINTAIN THE PRIVACY OF YOUR HEALTH INFORMATION AS REQUIRED BY HIPAA AND THE REGULATIONS PROMULGATED UNDER THAT ACT.
YOU ARE ACKNOWLEDGING THAT YOU HAVE READ AND AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS THE APPLICATION OR SERVICES AND DO NOT SUBMIT ANY INFORMATION TO US.
As a patient of one or more of Our participating Provider customers (a “Patient” and/or “You”), You have received an enrollment kit, which contains health and activity-monitoring devices, including Spire Health Tags (“Tags”) and a mobile device pre-loaded with Our Application (the “Hub,” collectively the Tags and Hub are the Spire “Devices”). By using Our Devices and Services, You will make information related to Your health and activities (“Health Data”) available to Your Providers.
What Information Do We Collect and Why?
Personal Data that You Provide through the Services: We collect Personal Information, including certain demographic information, from You when You voluntarily provide such information, such as when You agree to enroll in the Services, use the Devices in connection with the Services (including, without limitation, use of the Application featured on the Devices and/or platforms made available by the third-party providers of the Devices (collectively, the “Integrated Services”)), contact Us (by phone, email or in writing) with inquiries, engage with Spire representatives through our Remote Patient Monitoring service, enter information into Our Site contact form, or use certain features of the Services. We use this information to create Your account and provide the Services to You.
To deliver the Services, We may ask You to provide demographic information, in addition to Your contact preferences and certain contact information, including Your home address, email address and telephone number. When You use the Devices along with the Application, Spire Health collects other Health Data in order to create Your account and provide You the Services. Such Health Data may include information including Your name, gender, height, weight, as well as data about Your use of Our Services and Devices, such as detailed information collected while monitoring Your movements and activity. This information may include data on Your posture and movements, and other related biomechanical information such as Your respiration, pulse rate, and sleep activity. We collect this information to provide You more customized Services and to communicate information to Your Provider.
IP Addresses; Device ID Information: If You are accessing the Services through the Spire Hub, We may also request access to settings and location information to analyze and report upon usage of the Services; to diagnose and prevent service or technology problems affecting the Services; and to monitor and prevent fraud and abuse.
Non-Identiﬁable Data Related to Operation of the Services: When You interact with Spire Health through the Services, We receive and store certain de-identified information. Such information, which We collect passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify You. We may store such information Ourselves or include it in databases owned and maintained by Spire Health affiliates, agents or service providers. The Services may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of users of the Services, the number of visitors to each page of Our Site, and the domain names of Our visitors' Internet service providers. It is important to note that Spire Health does not use Personal Information for this process.
De-identiﬁed and Aggregated Personal Data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve Our Customers and other users of the Services, Spire Health may conduct research or case studies on Patient demographics and behavior based on the Personal Information We collect from You and the other Health Data information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and We may share this research and related information in aggregated, de-identiﬁed and/or anonymized format with Our affiliates, agents and other entities in the healthcare research and services industry, including without limitation insurance and pharmaceutical companies. For the avoidance of doubt, this aggregate de-identiﬁed and/or anonymized information cannot be used to identify You personally. Spire Health may also disclose aggregated, de-identiﬁed and/or anonymized information in order to describe Our business and the Services to current and prospective business partners and Customers, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
