Privacy Statement for Consumer Health Data


This Consumer Health Data Privacy Policy is an addition to our standard Privacy Policy, and it only applies to residents of Washington and Nevada (collectively referred to as “consumers” below). This Consumer Health Data Privacy Policy shall take precedence over our general privacy policy in the event of any discrepancies between the two. This Consumer Health Data Privacy Policy does not apply to you if you are not a resident of Nevada or Washington, and you should not rely on it.
In connection with the Company’s owned and operated websites or digital properties that link to this Consumer Health Data Privacy Policy and our related email, phone, and other electronic communications, and marketing activities (collectively, the “Site”), as well as the rights and choices available to consumers with respect to their consumer health data, this Consumer Health Data Privacy Policy explains how ClearChoice Management Services, LLC and our subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, the “Company”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) may collect, use, and disclose personal information that is considered “consumer health data” under applicable state law.
“Consumer health data” is defined as “personal information that is linked or reasonably linkable to a consumer and that identifies the consumer’s past, present, or future physical or mental health status” under the applicable privacy laws of Washington and Nevada. Protected health information that you might give the company in conjunction with the company’s provision of dental or medical services is not included in consumer health data. Please read any Notice of Privacy Practices you have received for more details about our privacy policies pertaining to those activities. The Notice of Privacy Practices will take precedence over this Consumer Health Data Privacy Policy in the event of any discrepancies (to the extent permitted by law).
