III. How We Use Your Information
A. To Provide the Services
We use the information that we collect from you to provide you with the Services, support and enhance your use of the Services, to monitor which features of the Services are used most and to allow us to determine which features we need to focus on improving. If you choose to provide us with Personal Information, you consent to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers located in the United States.
We may also use your contact information to send you push, email and other types of notifications regarding the prescription or order fulfillment process, or other information that you have requested notifications about. You may opt-out of these communications if you do not wish to receive them.
We use non-Personal Information collected from users of the Services in the aggregate, so that we can improve the Services and for business and administrative purposes.

C. Supplier Information

D. Patient Information

E. Diagnose Website Problems
Parachute uses your Internet Protocol (IP) address to help diagnose problems with our computer server, and to administer the Website. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic data. It is not stored or linked to your personal profile information, such as name or contact information.
F. Service-related Announcements
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email.
Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.
G. Customer Service
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
V. Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information and Preferences
If your Personal Information changes, or if you no longer desire our Services, or if you wish to update your preferences to receive email or other communications from us, you may correct, delete inaccuracies, or amend your Personal Information and preferences by making the change on our user information page or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org . 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.
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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
