GoodMDs, Inc.

GoodMDs, Inc. (“GoodMDs”) is committed to providing our product and service users with clear and concise information regarding our privacy policy and practices. This Privacy Policy describes in detail our policy and practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of user information by the GoodMDs family of companies, products, and services. By accessing our websites or utilizing our products and services, you consent to the information collection and handling practices outlined in this policy.

Information Collection

GoodMDs may collect various types of information, both personal and anonymous, through our products, services, and websites. The information is gathered from your usage of our products and services, as well as from your entry of information on our websites. This collected information consists of two basic types of data: 1) personal information and 2) non-personal information.

Personal information is information that can be used to uniquely identify you as an individual or contact you directly. This may include contact information such as your name, address, telephone number, and email address. For certain financial, health, or credit-based products and services, personal information may also include sensitive data such as payment data, credit records, social security numbers, date of birth, and account numbers. Personal information is only collected based upon your choice to provide it to GoodMDs through our products, services, and websites. You have the option to choose not to provide personal information to us; however, the lack of such personal information will typically prevent GoodMDs from providing the requested products or services to you.

If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.
Non-personal information is general information that does not permit direct association with you as an individual. When you browse GoodMDs websites, we may automatically collect non-personal information such as your IP address, device information, browser, internet connection speed, past web pages visited, and your link selections on our various website pages. This information may be used to: (1) manage and protect our websites, products, services, and users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; and (2) help us research, develop, and improve our websites, products, and services. This type of information may also be aggregated or otherwise rendered anonymous for business and marketing uses by us or by third parties.

Except as explained in this Privacy Policy, GoodMDs does not sell, license, or share our users’ information outside the GoodMDs family of companies without the consent and authorization of the user whose information will be shared.

We may share your information within the GoodMDs family of companies, products, and services for operational and marketing purposes. The GoodMDs companies that access your information will do so in conformity with the practices described in this Privacy Policy. Sharing this information allows GoodMDs to provide you with the best customer service experience possible, provide you with the services you have ordered or requested, and notify you of the latest information regarding new or enhanced products, services, and promotions.

Every marketing e-mail GoodMDs sends contains instructions and procedures allowing you to opt out of additional marketing e-mails for that product or service.

In some circumstances, we use third-party companies, agents, and contractors to perform services on our behalf, such as website optimization, email distribution, processing credit card transactions, infrastructure and IT services, background screening, and other data analysis, processing, or handling functions. In the course of engaging these third party services, GoodMDs only shares your information to the extent reasonably necessary for the third party to perform the requested services on our behalf. We do not permit these third parties to use or disclose your personal information except for the purpose of providing the services we request of them.
