Last Revised: May 14, 2017

Cnoga Medical Ltd. and its affiliates (“Cnoga“, “Company“, “we” or “us“) respect the privacy of the users (“User(s)” or “you”) of its “Singular” mobile application and web-application for the retrieval of information collected from your Patients via our Devices (collectively, the “App“). We are committed to protect the information you submit through our Services. We believe that you have a right to know our practices regarding the information we may collect and use when you use our App and/or Services.

Capitalized terms which are not defined herein, shall have the meaning ascribed to them in Cnoga’s Terms of Use available at [https://cnogacare.co/terms-of-use-doctor-nurse-healthcare-provider/ ] (“TOU“) to which this Privacy Policy is incorporated.

1.           Your Consent (important, please read carefully!)

BY (A) INSTALLING AND/OR DOWNLOADING THE APP ON YOUR MOBILE DEVICE, (B) ENTERING INTO, CONNECTING TO, ACTIVATING, USING AND/OR ACCESSING THE APP AND/OR THE SERVICES, AND/OR (C) CLICKING THE “I AGREE” BUTTON WHEN SETTING YOUR PASSWORD FOR THE APP YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET FORTH IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY, INCLUDING TO THE POSSIBLE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING, MONITORING, STORING AND SHARING OF THE INFORMATION SPECIFIED HEREIN. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SERVICES AND DO NOT INSTALL THE APP, DO NOT CONNECT TO, ACCESS OR USE THE APP, AND PROMPTLY ERASE THE APP FROM YOUR MOBILE DEVICE.

2.           Patient’s Consent and Your Compliance with Privacy and Health-Related-Information Laws

You are solely and exclusively responsible for all your communications and interactions with the Patients, and you understand that certain laws may impose obligations with regards to personal health information including the Readings.

BY USING THE APP, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU CAN UPLOAD, RECEIVE, STORE AND PROCESS PERSONAL INFORMATION (AS DEFINED BELOW), INCLUDING PATIENT’S READINGS (WHERE APPLICABLE), IN FULL COMPLIANCE WITH ANY APPLICABLE PRIVACY LAWS AND REGULATIONS AND THAT YOU RECEIVED FROM THIRD PARTIES, INCLUDING PATIENTS, ALL NECESSARY CONSENTS FOR THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF SUCH DATA BY CNOGA. WE WILL NOT ASSUME ANY LIABILITY IN THIS RESPECT.

HOWEVER, NOTE THAT TO THE EXTENT THAT USE OF APP IS MADE FOR THE PURPOSE OF VIEWING READINGS RESULTING FROM HOME MEASUREMENTS, THE PATIENT WILL BE REQUIRED TO GRANT, INDEPENDENTLY, HIS/HER CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF DATA BY CNOGA AND YOU WILL NOT BE REQUIRED TO OBTAIN SUCH CONSENT.

3.           Which information we may collect on our Users?

We may collect two types of data and information from our Users:

  1. The first type of information is un-identified and anonymous information (“Non-personal Information“). We are not aware of the identity of the User from whom we have collected the Non-personal Information. Non-Personal Information is any unconcealed information which does not enable identification of an individual User, and which is available to us when such User installs the App and when he/she uses the App. Non-personal Information which is being gathered consists of technical information, behavioral information and aggregated information, and may contain, among other things, browser type, the type of the User’s mobile device and its operating system and version, device language, device storage, screen resolution and other modes (e.g. vibration mode, Bluetooth), User’s ‘click-stream’ in the App, time spent on various screens of the App, date and time stamps, Internet connectivity, etc.
  2. The second type of information is personally identifiable information, namely information that identifies, or may with reasonable effort identify an individual, or may be of a private and/or sensitive nature (“Personal Information“):

·         Users of the App automatically provide their mobile device ID, or in connection with the use of computers, the IP address (or Mac Address, as applicable) mainly for enhancing the User’s experience and for geo-location and security purposes as further detailed below.

·         We collect data that is transmitted from the Device to our servers via the App, including Readings, as well as information which is derived from analysis of such information.

·         We collect the communications made using the App, including any correspondences with Patients and any file uploaded via the App.

·         In order to create an Account, you will be are required to provide the following details: email address,  password, full name, gender, date of birth, specialty, medical license number, telephone, country, city and street name. In addition, you may also provide, at you sole discretion, additional details such as home number details, phone number, your photo, etc.

·         The App makes specific access requests to use the camera on your device in order to take pictures as part of the blood measurements.

For avoidance of doubt, any Non-Personal Information connected or linked to any Personal Information shall be deemed as Personal Information as long as such connection or linkage exists.

We do not collect any Personal Information from you or related to you without your approval, which is obtained, inter alia, through your acceptance of the TOU and this Privacy Policy.
