Cormeum Privacy Policy

Introduction
Ginkgo Heart, LLC (“us,” “our,” or “we” or “Cormeum”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through our privacy practices as described in this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy outlines the personal information we collect, how it is used, and the choices you as the purchaser and user of the App (“You”) have with regard to your personal information. This Privacy Policy applies to the personal information we collect through our websites, mobile applications (the “App”), and any other website or mobile application owned by us (collectively “Services”) that posts a link to this Privacy Policy.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your personal information. Use of our Services indicates your consent to these practices described in this Privacy Policy. If You do not agree with the practices described in this Privacy Policy, You should not use any of our Services. This Privacy Policy may change from time to time (see “Changes to Our Privacy Policy”). Your continued use of our Services after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance by You of those changes.

Health-related Information
Cormeum is a mobile application that can help You learn about your cardiac health and track your cardiac health status, and that allow You to  share information with a health care provider, to facilitate your medical care. 

Ginkgo Heart’s cardiac health tool allows You to input your personal daily habits, nutrition, diet, medication, and physical condition to generate information regarding your cardiac health (“Health Data”) to help guide a cardiac health care and treatment plan, including diagnostic, preventative and remedial steps. 

The Cormeum App is designed to receive and maintain Health Data and allow You to transmit or share the Health Data, if You so choose, with third parties, including your health care providers.  Cormeum is not creating, receiving, maintaining or transmitting Protected Health Information as defined under federal or state privacy laws including HIPAA, on behalf of a health care provider or other Covered Entity. However, Cormeum is committed to protecting your Health Data and ensuring that it is secure and protected from unauthorized disclosure.   Except as expressly set forth below, the use of the App by You is intended to be   limited to providing You, and any health care provider You authorize, access to your Health Data for the purpose of providing information to support your personal cardiac health care goals and treatment.

Data Security
We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.

The safety and security of your information also depends on You. Where we have given You (or where You have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Services, You are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask You not to share your password with anyone. We urge You to be careful about giving out information.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we take measures to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted through our Services. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on our Services.

California Subscriber Rights
If You are a California resident, as defined in the California Code of Regulations, You may have rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”), including:

  • The right to know the categories of personal information we have collected and the categories of sources from which we got the information (see Information We May Collect above);
  • The right to know the business purposes for sharing personal information (see How We Use Your Information and How We Disclose Your Information above);
  • The right to know the categories of third parties with whom we have shared personal information (see How We Disclose Your Information — above);
  • The right to access the specific pieces of personal information we have collected and the right, in certain cases, to delete your information.

California residents also have the specific right to not be discriminated against if they exercise their rights under the CCPA.

Before we honor your right to request information or delete information, we must verify your or your authorized agent’s identity. In certain cases, to accomplish that, we may require you to provide additional information.

We do not sell your personal information or Health Data about You.  However, as allowed by applicable law, we may share your personal information with vendors who support our business operations, such as by way of example, information technology services and security system providers.  Any other disclosures would include only anonymized, aggregate data that would not identify You.

California Do Not Track Disclosure
Do Not Track is a privacy preference that users can set in their web browsers. When a user turns on the Do Not Track signal, the browser sends a message to websites requesting them not to track the user. At this time we do not respond to Do Not Track browser settings or signals. For information about Do Not Track, please visit: www.allaboutdnt.org.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy
If changes to this Privacy Policy are made, we will notify You by revising the date on this Privacy Policy. We encourage You to stay informed about our privacy practices by reviewing the Privacy Policy whenever you interact with us. In certain cases, we may provide You with additional notice of changes to this Privacy Policy. Any change to this Privacy Policy will be effective immediately and your continued use of our Services indicates your consent.
