If you are a patient or member of a Thyme Care customer that is a healthcare provider or health plan subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), then our agreement with your healthcare provider and health plan will govern how we use and share your “protected health information” as defined by HIPAA. If you have any questions about the privacy of your protected health information, please contact your healthcare provider or health plan.

Our Use of Your Personal Data:
Thyme Care may also use your Personal Data collected through the Services to help us improve the content and functionality of the Services, to better understand our users and to improve the Services. Thyme Care may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about services we believe will be of interest to you. This includes contacting you for marketing and promotional purposes by various means, including email, mail, and telephone. If we do so, each marketing communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to "opt-out" of receiving future marketing communications. Operational and other non-marketing communications regarding use of the Services may not contain “opt out” instructions. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future marketing communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, Thyme Care often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and Thyme Care may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. Thyme Care may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
Thyme Care is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: Thyme Care, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
Legal Requirements: Thyme Care may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Thyme Care, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
Health Information Exchange: Thyme Care may make your protected health information available electronically through an electronic health information exchange to other health care providers that request your information for their treatment purposes. In all cases the requesting provider must have or have had a treating relationship with you. Participation in an electronic health information exchange also lets us see other providers' information about you for our treatment purposes.
All the above categories exclude text messaging originator opt-in data and consent; this information will not be shared with any third parties.
Our Site and Service is hosted in the United States and is generally intended for United States visitors.
