Our privacy philosophy is based on the concept of fair information practices. This means we provide you with notice of how we manage and collect information so that you can have a more informed understanding of how we operate. Our policy regarding the collection and use of your information via this Platform is set forth below. Where necessary, we use the term “Website” to refer to the 15MinRx website as seen from a desktop computer through a standard browser or as seen through a browser on a mobile device such as a phone or a tablet, and “Mobile App” to refer to the mobile YPO application purchased through an application marketplace like Google Play or the Apple AppStore.
About This Policy
Notice Of What Information We Collect And How It’s Used
We collect several types of information:
Personally Identifiable Information
If you provide it to us, we collect and retain personally identifiable information, including, but not limited to, your name, gender, date of birth, telephone number, cell phone number, mailing address, email address and your prescription information (which we collect in the course of providing services to you under the YPO Platform). We use this information in order to assist you with prescription refills at participating pharmacies, with finding a 15MinRx, with receiving coupons and other offers to use at a participating pharmacy, and/or other communications with your pharmacies and other health care organizations as permitted by law.
Additionally, any personally identifiable information that you voluntarily provide when using this Platform may be used to provide you with information, products or services that you may request from your local participating pharmacy. Communications may occur either via text messaging, email, or push notifications and you will have the opportunity to set your preferences for certain communications related to your prescriptions within the Platform.
We may also use such information to communicate to you special offers and featured items from your participating pharmacy, 15MinRx, our affiliates, partners, and other suppliers and vendors. If you are receiving additional communications and special offers, you may opt out of receiving such additional information at any time by contacting us using the contact information below or as outlined in the applicable communication. We will implement your opt-out request within a commercially reasonable time.
Your local participating pharmacy will also have access to your personally identifiable information you submit via this Platform, and your other protected health information as defined under HIPAA, and will use such information as necessary to provide you the information, products and services that you may request. Your pharmacy has its own privacy practices and YPO has no control over or responsibility for your local pharmacy’s use of information that you may provide to it.
We may also use your personally identifiable information to customize your browsing experience and communicate with you and otherwise respond to your questions and suggestions.
We may share your personally identifiable information with our suppliers and vendors or with other third parties to enable them to provide services for us or to you. We require those suppliers and vendors to comply with all applicable data privacy laws and regulations, including HIPAA. We do not sell, lease or rent your personal information.
When you use Our Mobile App, We may also collect geo-location information to assist you in quickly finding places or receiving relevant location information, such as where participating pharmacies are found. If you do not want the Mobile App to obtain location data, you can disable the location function on your mobile device, in which case you may not receive relevant information. Location information is not saved or stored beyond what is necessary to ensure a consistent and functional application.
We also collect information that identifies the type of device you are using and a unique identifier that identifies you as a user of the Mobile App. Our Mobile App uses this information to enhance your use of the App by: (i) determining the applicable End User License that applies to you, (ii) checking the device’s network connectivity status, and (iii) saving location information about your favorite pharmacies you access on the Mobile App.
The Mobile App can launch certain other applications on your mobile device: (i) if you select an email link in the Mobile App, your email application will be launched; (ii) if you select a phone number, your phone dialer app will be launched.
