Welcome to an area most online vendors hope you never visit. We’re glad you came. We’re super glad that privacy is important to you because it’s important to us, too. We’re going to do our best here to be clear & understandable, but as you know this is where law dictates a lot of what we can say. So if you’d like to ask us anything, please don’t be shy. Email us at email@example.com
This is an Adults Only Situation (For now;): Our Service is intended for use by individuals who are at least eighteen (18) years of age or such older age as may be required by applicable state laws in the jurisdiction in which an individual utilizes the Service. It’s not that we don’t love young people. It’s just that the law requires a lot of additional capabilities to appropriately serve FOLX under 18 and we’re not there yet.
The Service is not designed or intended to attract, and is not directed to, children under eighteen (18) years of age, let alone thirteen (13) years of age. If we obtain actual knowledge that we have inadvertently collected personal information through the Platform from a person under thirteen (13) years of age, we will use reasonable efforts to refrain from further using such personal information or maintaining it in retrievable form.
Furthermore, if you are under eighteen (18) years of age, then you (or your parent or legal guardian) may at any time request that we remove content or information about you that is posted on the Platform. Please submit any such request ("Request for Removal of Minor Information") to: firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line of "Removal of Minor Information"
For each Request for Removal of Minor Information, please state "Removal of Minor Information" in the email or letter subject line, and clearly state the following in the body of the request:
We will not accept any Request for Removal of Minor Information via telephone or fax. FOLX Health is not responsible for failing to comply with any Request for Removal of Minor Information that is incomplete, incorrectly labeled, or incorrectly sent because unless we have an email or a letter these requests are hard to track and we need to ensure we are taking an appropriate action.
Sometimes we won’t be able (and legally aren’t required) to delete your information in certain circumstances, such as, for example, when an international, federal, state, or local law, rule or regulation requires FOLX Health to maintain the content or information; when FOLX Health maintains the content or information on behalf of your Providers (as defined in our Terms and Conditions) as part of your electronic medical record; when the content or information is stored on or posted to the Site by a third party other than you (including any content or information posted by you that was stored, republished or reposted by the third party); when FOLX Health anonymizes the content or information, so that you cannot be individually identified; or when you do not follow the aforementioned instructions for requesting the removal of the content or information. Even though we are not required to erase information in these certain circumstances, we strive to make our decisions in regard to your content and information in a way that best protects the privacy of that information.
The foregoing is a description of FOLX Health' voluntary practices concerning the collection of personal information through the Service from certain minors. Additionally, FOLX Health agrees to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, the Federal Trade Commission's Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule(s), or any similar international, federal, state, or local laws, rules, or regulations as applicable.
However, in using certain components of the Service, FOLX Health may receive certain medical information that may be protected under applicable laws, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 as amended, and its implementing regulations (collectively, “HIPAA”). Certain information provided to FOLX Health by the Providers may be protected by HIPAA (this information is called “PHI”). Your health information may also be protected under state law. We agree to comply with applicable law, and we strive to do so in ways that protect the privacy of that information. To the extent FOLX Health receives PHI that is protected by HIPAA or information that is protected by state law, this information will be used and disclosed only as permitted by HIPAA and applicable state law. PHI does not include information that has been de-identified in accordance with HIPAA, or information that has had all identifiers, such as your name, address, email address, etc., removed.
The Providers each have their own HIPAA Notices of Privacy Practices that describe how the Providers use and disclose PHI. FOLX Health encourages you to review any applicable Notices of Privacy Practices in order to understand the Provider’s uses and disclosures as well as your rights with respect to your PHI.
What do we collect? We collect any information you provide when you use the Service, including, but not limited to:
If you use your mobile device to visit, access or use the Service, then additional categories of information that we collect may include:
We also collect certain medical information on behalf of the Providers, which may include, but is not limited to:
FOLX Health might collect personal and non-personal information directly from you when you visit, access or use the Service; when you register with or subscribe to the Service or any products or services available through the Service; when you "sign in," "log in," or the like to the Service; when you allow the Service to access, upload, download, import or export content found on or through, or to otherwise interact with, your computer or mobile device (or any other device you may use to visit, access or use the Service) or online accounts with third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers or applications (e.g., your online social media accounts, your cloud drives and servers, your mobile device service provider); or whenever FOLX Health asks you for such information, such as, for example, when you process a payment through the Service, or when you answer an online survey or questionnaire. In addition, if you or a third party sends FOLX Health a comment, message or other communication (such as, by way of example only, email, letter, fax, phone call, or voice message) about you or your activities on or through the Site and/or the App, then FOLX Health may collect any personal or non-personal information provided therein or therewith.
In addition to the information we collect directly from you, we may also collect certain information from the Providers who provide treatment or other services to you in connection with our Service. This information may include, but is not limited to, diagnoses, treatment plans (including prescription details) and notes, and is accessible and visible through certain components of the Service.
We may also receive information from third parties that pay for your care or provide you with treatment, laboratory care or prescription medication, which may include, for example, your prescription history, insurance policy, insurance eligibility and coverage, and laboratory test results.
Finally, FOLX Health might use various tracking, data aggregation and/or data analysis technologies, including, for example, the following:
Please be advised that if you choose to block, reject, disable, delete or change the management settings for any or all of the aforementioned technologies and/or other tracking, data aggregation and data analysis technologies, then certain areas of the Platform might not function properly.
That’s a lot of information. What do we use it for? In connection with providing the Service, we and our affiliates and service providers may use your information, subject to the limitations addressed in the Protected Health Information Section above, for a number of purposes, including, but not limited to:
We may de-identify your information and use, create and sell such de-identified information, or any business or other purpose not prohibited by applicable law.
When might we have to disclose your information to others? Subject to the limitations described in the Protected Health Information section above, we may disclose your information to third parties in connection with the provision of our Service or as otherwise permitted or required by law. For example, we may disclose your information to:
FOLX Health may retain your information for as long as it believes necessary; as long as necessary to comply with its legal obligations, resolve disputes and/or enforce its agreements; and/or as long as needed to provide you with the products and/or services of the Service. FOLX Health may dispose of or delete any such information at any time, except as set forth in any other agreement or document executed by FOLX Health or as required by law.
Similarly, the Providers may retain your information for as long as they believe necessary; as long as necessary to comply with their respective legal obligations, resolve disputes and/or enforce its agreements; and/or as long as needed to provide you with the products and/or services of the Providers. The Providers may dispose of or delete any such information at any time, except as set forth in any other agreement or document executed by the Providers or as required by law.
In connection with any transaction that you conduct through the Service (e.g., the purchase or sale of any products or services on or through the Service), you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to the transaction, including, without limitation, your credit card number and expiration date, your billing address, your shipping address, your phone number and/or your email address. By submitting such information, you grant FOLX Health without charge the right to provide such information to third parties (e.g., payment processing companies, buyers on the Service, sellers on the Service) for the purpose of facilitating the transaction.

To exercise these privacy rights and choices, please follow the instructions below:
We reserve the right to charge a fee where permitted by law, for instance, if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Verification: Please note, we will take steps to verify your identity before fulfilling any of the above requests. If you maintain an account with us, we will verify your identity through existing authentication practices for the account (e.g., login and password). If you are not a registered member, we will verify your identity by matching two or three data points that you provide with data points that we maintain and have determined to be reliable for the purposes of verification (e.g., browser or device ID).
Authorized Agents: Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your or your minor child's personal information.

Please note, that if you are submitting a request regarding information you provided to a Provider, your request should be directed to that entity.
