Agent means a third party that processes Personal Information solely on behalf of and under the instructions of InTouch Health.
Personal Information means any information or set of information that identifies or can reasonably be used to identify an individual.
Sensitive Personal Information means Personal Information that reveals race, ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, or that concerns health or sex life. Information will be treated as Sensitive Personal Information where it is received from a third party that treats and identifies it as Sensitive.
InTouch Health will inform individuals about the purposes for which we collect and use Personal Information about them, how to contact us with any inquiries or complaints regarding such, the types of non-agent third parties with whom we may share Personal Information, and any ways that individuals may limit the use and sharing of such data. This notice will be provided when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Information or as soon thereafter as is practicable.
InTouch Health will offer an individual the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether Personal Information is shared with a non-agent third party or is used for a purpose other than that for which the data was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. For Sensitive Personal Information, we will give an individual an affirmative or explicit (opt in) choice if the information is to be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.
InTouch Health will ensure that any third party to which Personal Information may be disclosed agrees to follow these Principles in the handling of that information.
InTouch Health will take reasonable steps to protect the Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
InTouch Health will only process Personal Information in a way that is compatible with and relevant for the purpose for which it was collected or authorized by the individual. To the extent necessary for those purposes, the Company will take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use.
InTouch Health will allow an individual access to their Personal Information and allow the individual to correct, amend or delete inaccurate information, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the privacy of the individual in the case in question or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.
