We may also use software tools, such as Javascript, to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, and methods used to browse away from the page. Non-Personal Data also includes some data collected by location services.

HIPAA Compliance

If any of the Services Zencare providers are subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), we will have privacy and security obligations set forth our Business Associates Agreement, which is incorporated herein by reference, in addition to those described in this Privacy Policy.

Data Security

The security of your data is very important to Zencare. We have implemented appropriate security measures preventing your Personal Information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. However, you should know that no website operator, including Zencare, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information. While Zencare has endeavored to create a secure and reliable website for Users, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from the Site or via e-mail cannot be guaranteed.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where you have chosen a password for access to certain parts of our Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. Of special consideration are work email, school, or institutional email addresses. For example, if you use your work email to communicate, your employer may have legal access your email communications. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Site. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any User or Therapist of the Site. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information transmitted to our Site. Any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site.

You may also send us an email at hello@zencare.co to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us.

We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

If you delete your User Content from the Site, copies of your User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other Site users.  Proper access and use of information provided on the Site, including User Content, is governed by our terms of use.
