How long do We retain Personal Data?

We will retain your Personal Data for as long as you maintain a User Account and will never delete your data. The exact period of retention will depend on the type of Personal Data, our contractual obligation to you, and applicable law. We keep your Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected, unless otherwise required or necessary pursuant to a legitimate business purpose outlined herein. At the end of the applicable retention period, we will remove your Personal Data from our databases and will request that our Business Partners remove your Personal Data from their databases. If there is any data that we are unable, for technical reasons, to delete entirely from our systems, we will put in place appropriate measures to prevent any further processing of such data. We retain anonymized data indefinitely. Contact Us at info@accuhealth.tech regarding the applicable data retention period for your Personal Data. 

NOTE: Once we disclose your Personal Data to third parties, we may not be able to access that Personal Data any longer and cannot force the deletion or modification of any such information by the parties to whom we have made those disclosures. Written requests for deletion of Personal Data other than as described should be directed to info@accuhealth.tech.

How do we protect your Personal Data?

Accuhealth is committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of your Personal Data. We use a combination of reasonable physical, technical, and administrative security controls to maintain the security and integrity of your Personal Data, to protect against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of such information, and to protect against unauthorized access to or use of such information in our possession or control that could result in substantial harm or inconvenience to you. However, Internet data transmissions, whether wired or wireless, cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot absolutely ensure the security of information you transmit to us. By using the Service, you are assuming this risk.

Safeguards

The information collected by Accuhealth and stored on secure servers is protected by a combination of technical, administrative, and physical security safeguards, such as authentication, encryption, backups, and access controls. If Accuhealth learns of a security concern, we may attempt to notify you and provide information on protective steps, if available, through the e­mail address that you have provided to us or by an in­app notification. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive such notices in writing.

You are solely responsible for protecting information entered or generated via the Service that is stored on your personal device (such as your cell phone or tablet) and/or removable device storage. Accuhealth has no access to or control over your personal device’s security settings, and it is up to you to implement any device ­level security features and protections you feel are appropriate (e.g., password protection, encryption, remote wipe capability, etc.). We recommend that you take any and all appropriate steps to secure any device that you use to access our App.

NOTWITHSTANDING ANY STEPS THAT WE TAKE, IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO GUARANTEE THE SECURITY OR INTEGRITY OF DATA TRANSMITTED OVER THE INTERNET. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL NOT BE ACCESSED, DISCLOSED, ALTERED, OR DESTROYED BY BREACH OF ANY OF OUR PHYSICAL, TECHNICAL, OR ADMINISTRATIVE SAFEGUARDS. THEREFORE, WE DO NOT AND CANNOT ENSURE OR WARRANT THE SECURITY OR INTEGRITY OF ANY PERSONAL DATA YOU TRANSMIT TO US, AND YOU TRANSMIT SUCH PERSONAL DATA AT YOUR OWN RISK.

How can You protect Your Personal Data?

Please be advised that we will NEVER send you an email requesting confidential information such as account numbers, usernames, passwords, or social security numbers, and you should NEVER respond to any email requesting such information. If you receive such an email purportedly from Accuhealth, DO NOT RESPOND to the email, DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINKS AND/OR OPEN ANY ATTACHMENTS in the email, and NOTIFY Accuhealth SUPPORT at info@accuhealth.tech immediately.

You are responsible for taking reasonable precautions to protect your user ID, password, and other User Account information from disclosure to third parties, and You are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. You should immediately notify Accuhealth at info@accuhealth.tech if you know of or suspect any unauthorized use or disclosure of your user ID, password, and/or other User Account information, or any other security concern.

California Residents

California residents may request and obtain from us, once a year, free of charge, a list of third parties, if any, to which we disclosed their Personal Data for direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year and the categories of Personal Data shared with those third parties. If you are a California resident and wish to obtain that information, please submit your request by sending us an email at info@accuhealth.tech with “California Privacy Rights” in the subject line.

How do You update, correct, or delete Personal Data?

You may change your email address and other contact information by sending an email to support@accuhealth.tech. If you need to make changes or corrections to other information, you may send an email to support@accuhealth.tech. Please note that in order to comply with certain requests to limit use of your Personal Data, we may need to terminate your account and your ability to access and use the Services, and you agree that we will not be liable to you for such termination or for any refunds of prepaid fees paid by you. You may deactivate your account by sending an email to support@accuhealth.tech.

Although we will use reasonable efforts to do so, you understand that it may not be technologically possible to remove from our systems every record of your Personal Data. The need to back up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means a copy of your Personal Data may exist in a non­erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate or remove. 

How do You “OPT­OUT” of receiving communications from Us?

We will not market third-party services to you without your consent. We will only send emails to you regarding your Accuhealth account and services unless we have your express consent to do otherwise. You can choose to filter these emails using your e­mail client settings, but we do not provide an option for you to opt out of these emails. You can opt out of non-essential emails by sending an email to support@accuhealth.tech.

Information submission by minors

We do not knowingly collect Personal Data from individuals under the age of 18 and the Service is not directed to individuals under the age of 13. We request that these individuals not provide Personal Data to Us. If we learn that Personal Data from users less than 18 years of age has been collected, we will deactivate the account and take reasonable measures to promptly delete such data from our records. If you are aware of a user under the age of 13 using the Service, please contact us at info@accuhealth.tech.
