Well gathers various types of Personal Information from You, as explained in more detail below, and we use this Personal Information internally in connection with our Service, including to personalize, provide, and improve our services, to allow You to set up an account and profile, to contact you, to fulfill Your requests for certain products and services, and to analyze how You use the Service. In certain cases, we may also share some Personal Information with third parties, but only as described below.
As mentioned in Well’s Terms of Service, Well does not knowingly collect or solicit Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13. If You are under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Service or send any Personal Information about Yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If You believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us by: (a) sending an email to: email@example.com, or (b) sending a letter via US Mail to: Well Dot, Inc., 128 E Franklin Street, Suite 240, Chapel Hill NC 27514.
Under a federal law called the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and related implementing regulations, all as amended from time to time (collectively “HIPAA”), some of the demographic, health and/or health-related information that Well collects as part of providing the Service may be considered “protected health information” or “PHI.” For example, some of the identifiable information Well receives about You from or on behalf of Your healthcare specialists, professionals, providers (including, without limitation, Your health insurance provider), or organizations (“Providers”) may be PHI. HIPAA provides specific protections for the privacy and security of PHI and restricts how PHI is used and disclosed. We may only use and disclose Your PHI in compliance with HIPAA and as permitted pursuant to the agreements between us and the Providers.
As noted in Well’s Terms of Service, if You meet the eligibility requirements as established by Well, You may sign up to become a registered user of the Service. You may invite a legal dependent over the age of 18 to create an account (such as a parent, spouse, family member or other legal dependent). By inviting this person to create an account, You confirm that this person meets the eligibility requirements to create an account.
If Well creates any creates reports for such dependents who You invite to create an account, those reports are only accessible to the dependent who created the account. For the avoidance of doubt, Well does not knowingly permit children to set up an account or add information to an account without parental or legal guardian consent and supervision.
