INTRODUCTION

At Kinspire Inc. we are committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy covers how Kinspire collects, receives, uses, retains, and discloses Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and Protected Health Information (“PHI”) on Kinspire’s website and/or platform. PII includes information about you that is personally identifying such as your name, email address, and phone number and which is not otherwise publicly available.  PHI includes information relating to your health, for example medical history, health conditions, test results, physician referrals, insurance information and other data that a healthcare provider may collect to identify an individual and determine appropriate care.  PII and PHI may include other types of information depending on the legal definition that applies in your physical location.  Only the definitions of PII and PHI that apply in your location will apply to you under this Privacy Policy.  PII and PHI are referred to collectively in this Privacy Policy as “Personal Information.”

4.1 Personal Information.  The specific types of Personal Information we collect will depend upon the Services you use, how you use them, and the information you choose to provide. The types of Data we collect directly from you includes, without limitation:

  • Name, address, telephone number, [date of birth] and email address
  • Information about you/your child’s diagnosis, treatment options, physician referrals or other related health information 
  • Log-in credentials, if you create an account
  • Information about your customer service and maintenance interactions with us
  • Chat messages 
  • Demographic information such as your gender and age
  • Feedback or correspondence you send to us 
  • Pictures or videos you may upload
  • Any other information you choose to directly provide to us in connection with your use of the Services.

You may also provide content and/or other information for publication or display (“Posted”) on public areas of the Service and related websites (collectively, “User Contributions”). Your User Contributions are Posted and transmitted to others at your own risk. Although you may be able to set certain privacy settings for certain User Contributions, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of third parties with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your User Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.

We may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send.

4.2 Usage Data

We may also collect information how the App and the Site are accessed and used. This Usage Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol address (e.g. IP address), browser type, browser version, the pages of the App or the Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.

4.3 Tracking Cookies Data. We use cookies and similar tracking technologies to track the activity on the App and the Site and hold certain information.

Cookies are files with small amount of data which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a Site and stored on your device. Tracking technologies also used are beacons, tags, and scripts to collect and track information and to improve and analyze the App and the Site.

We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but that may prevent us from providing you with the full range of Services we offer. Also, please be aware that if you visit other sites you may be required to accept cookies. The use of cookies by third parties is not covered by our Privacy Policy.  

4.4 Web Beacons. Web beacons are electronic images that may be used on our Site or in our emails. We use web beacons to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and to tell if an email has been opened and acted upon.

4.5 Clear Gifs.  We may also use clear gifs or other data files or identifiers to collect information for statistical purposes and to improve and develop the Services. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are placed on a hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages. 

4.6 Mobile Application Software Development Kits (SDKs). We may use third-party software development kits (“SDKs”) in our mobile applications. An SDK is third-party computer code that may be used for a variety of purposes, including to provide us with analytics regarding the use of the App, to integrate with social media, add features or functionality to our Sites or Apps, or to facilitate online advertising. SDKs may enable third parties to collect information directly via the App or the Site.

4.7 Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports application and website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of the App and the Site. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.

You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Services available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity.

For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy Terms web page here.

4.8 Google Firebase. We use Google Firebase (“Firebase”) with the App.  Firebase provides tools for, but not limited to, authentication (including passwords, which are not stored or managed by us), tracking analytics, push notifications and crash reporting.  

For more information on the privacy and security practices of Firebase, please visit the Privacy and Security in Firebase web page here.

4.9 Do Not Track.  We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party sites or other online services (behavioral tracking). We do not respond to browser-based “do not track” signals. Some third-party sites who push content to our Site may keep track of your browsing activities over time and across different sites when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you.

5. Use of Personal Information.  Kinspire uses or may use your collected Data for various purposes:

  • To operate, provide and improve our Services;
  • To send information or content to you which we think may be of interest to you by post, email, or other means and send you marketing communications relating to our business;

  • To monitor the usage of the App or the Site;
  • To ensure network and information security

We are committed to protecting the security of your Personal Information. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. But remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.  While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

5.5. Protected Health Information (PHI).  

If necessary to perform the Services, Kinspire may collect PHI, as defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”). Any use, maintenance, or disclosure of PHI by Kinspire will be in accordance with applicable laws, including HIPAA.  Any Personal Information that a Caregiver share directly with a Provider listed on our Site, including any PHI, will be subject to the privacy practices of the Provider and Kinspire shall have no responsibility or liability for the handling of your Personal Information by the Provider.  In the event Kinspire receives PHI from a Provider, Kinspire’s use and disclosure of such PHI shall be in accordance with its obligations as a “Business Associate,” as defined by HIPAA. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you understand and agree that any Personal Information, including PHI, that has been de-identified in accordance with HIPAA (“De-Identified Protected Health Information”) is no longer subject to HIPAA and may be used and disclosed in any manner permitted by this Privacy Policy and applicable law. 

6. Your Choices Regarding Your Information.

13. Supplemental Privacy Statement for California Consumers under CCPA

Introduction

Our business proudly serves or will serve certain natural persons residing in the State of California (each, a “consumer”). This California Statement explains rights that California consumers may have under the CCPA.

When we use the term “personal information” in this supplemental California Statement, we are using that term as CCPA defines it, which CCPA generally defines “personal information” to mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. However, personal information does not include publicly available, deidentified, or aggregate consumer information (which are all defined in CCPA). Notably, the definition of “personal information” also does not apply to the collection of personal information from job applicants, employees – whether you are our employee or any employee of the entity arranging access to our Services for you, business owners, directors, officers, medical staff, or contractors. 

13.1 Categories of personal information we collect, the sources of that information, purposes for why we collect it, who we share it with, and whether we sell that personal information.  Where we act as a “business” under CCPA (meaning we determine the manner and reasons for why we process your personal information), we may be required to disclose additional information regarding the categories of personal information we collect, the sources where we obtain that information, the purposes for why we collect that information, who we share that information with, as well as whether we sell that personal information – all of which depends on the specific Service. 

13.2. Your privacy rights.

If you are a resident of California and are not a job applicant, employee/contractor, or employee/contractor of another company interacting with us in your job role, you have the right to request what information we collect, use, and disclose. You also have the right to request that we delete your information.

To make a request, you can contact us at privacy@kinspireapp.com. Provide us enough information to verify your identify. We will use information you provide to us to verify your request. If we cannot initially verify your identity, we may request additional information to complete the verification process, such as, for example, a copy of your driver’s license and/or a recent utility or credit card bill. You can designate an agent to make a request on your behalf by either: (1) having your agent send us a letter, signed by you, certifying that the agent is acting on your behalf and showing proof that they are registered with the California Secretary of State; or (2) by you and the agent executing and sending us a notarized power of attorney stating that the agent is authorized to act on your behalf. Please note that we may still require you to verify your identity before we process a request submitted by your agent.

California residents also have certain rights regarding the sale of personal information. California residents have the right to opt out of the sale of their personal information by contacting us at privacy@kinspireapp.com.

We will not discriminate against you because you have exercised any of your privacy rights under the CCPA.
