D. Cookies and Authentication Tokens
To help us serve your needs better, we use “cookies” to store and sometimes track user non-Personal Information, such as your IP address and click tracking. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. A website can use cookies to recognize repeat users or track web usage behavior. Cookies work by assigning a number to the user that has no meaning outside of the assigning website. Users of the Services should be aware that non-Personal Information and data may be automatically collected by virtue of the standard operation of Parachute’s computer servers or through the use of cookies. If you do not want information to be collected through the use of cookies, your browser allows you to deny or accept the use of cookies. There may, however, be some features of the Services which require the use of cookies in order to customize the delivery of information to you.

For security purposes, an authentication token is granted when you provide valid credentials that lasts 4 hours, then cuts off access and re-prompts for credentials again [see VII security for details].

Users should be aware that Parachute cannot control the use of cookies (or the resulting information) by third-parties. The use of third party cookies is not covered by our Privacy Policy. We do not have access or control over these cookies.

Parachute does not track users across third party websites, and therefore does not use or respond to “do not track” signals in your web browser.

We may also use services hosted by third parties, such as Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), to assist in providing the Services. Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyze how users use the Services. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to, and stored by, Google on their servers. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Services, compiling reports on website activity for us and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Services. By using the Services, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

IV. Our Disclosure of Your Information

Clinicians and Suppliers only have access to the information that each needs to access for purposes of fulfilling the Services. We do not share any information with external entities other than as provided below.
A. Aggregated Data
Parachute may share aggregated usage and log data collected from users of the Services with third parties for industry analysis and demographic profiling, but such aggregated data will not include any Personal Information.
B. Third Party Service Providers
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Services, to provide the Services on our behalf, provide customer support, perform Services-related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Services’ features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Services are used. These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf, and we will contractually require them to protect and safeguard your Personal Information to at least the same extent that we do. We do not store any of the credit card data we collect but instead license to external PCI compliant vendors to store and transfer payment information. We contractually require these vendors to maintain PCI compliance.
C. Law Enforcement
Parachute cooperates with government and law enforcement officials, agencies and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials, agencies or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal processes (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of Parachute or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, an illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
D. Business Transfers
In the event that all or a substantial portion of the assets, business or stock of Parachute are acquired by, merged with or transferred to another party, or in the event that Parachute goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, your Personal Information may be one of the assets that is transferred to or acquired by the third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Parachute or its assets may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If any acquirer of Parachute or its assets will use your Personal Information contrary to this Privacy Policy, you will receive prior notice.

V. Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information and Preferences

We will respond to your access request within 30 days.

VI. Retention of Personal Information

All information submitted by Clinicians and Suppliers through the Services is stored in an encrypted HIPAA-compliant database supported by Amazon Web Services or directly in encrypted files.

VII. Security

Users are only granted access to our system with a username and password. Upon providing valid credentials, a user is granted an authentication token that lasts 4 hours, then cuts off access and re-prompts for credentials again.

All access to our site is conducted via https (TLS encryption). All internal communications are TLS (Transport Layer Security) encrypted as well. All information we collect is securely stored within our database, and we use standard, industry-wide, commercially reasonable security practices such as 256-bit encryption, firewalls and TSL.

However, as effective as encryption technology is, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet, and any information you transmit to Parachute you do at your own risk. We recommend that you use unique numbers, letters and special characters in your password and not disclose your password to anyone. For your protection, Parachute may also require you to use a two-factor authentication process to verify the identity of your account. If you do share your password or Personal Information with others, you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify Parachute at support@parachutehealth.com and change your password.

VIII. Individual California Residents

California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of our Services that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Information to third parties, if any, for their direct marketing purposes (which Parachute does not currently engage in) or choose to opt out of such disclosure. To make such a request, you may contact us by email at support@parachutehealth.com.

IX. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this Website and in the Portal prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
