Unless explicitly stated otherwise herein, all capitalized terms have their definitions as per the Healthon Terms and Conditions ("Terms and Conditions").

We prioritize the privacy of our Service users. This Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") outlines our practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of your information through the Service.

Use Limitations for Minors

The Service is primarily designed for users who are at least eighteen (18) years old or of a greater age as mandated by the laws of the jurisdiction where the Service is utilized.

Protected Health Information

Creating an account with Healthon establishes a direct customer relationship, allowing you access to various functions of the Platform and Service. In this context, you may provide us with personal and transactional information, which we do not consider "protected health information" or "medical information."

However, the Service might involve the provision of health or medical information protected under certain laws. While Healthon is not a "covered entity" under HIPAA, it may, in some instances, act as a "business associate" to healthcare providers. It's important to understand that HIPAA might not apply to all interactions with Healthon or the healthcare providers, labs, or pharmacies you engage with through the Service.

Any protected health information, as defined under HIPAA, provided to Healthon in its capacity as a business associate, will be handled in accordance with HIPAA regulations. Additionally, any health or medical information protected under state laws will only be used and disclosed in compliance with such laws. Non-protected information may be utilized or disclosed as outlined in this Privacy Policy.
