We may collect information pertaining to you (a) directly from you, (b) from third parties, and (c) through your use of our Services and Site.
Information We Collect Directly from You.
No registration is required for Users to visit the informational areas of the Site. However, registration is required to use the Services. Once a Provider registers with us and subscribes to our Services, the Provider can invite Patients to use the Services. After receiving an invite, the Patient needs to register for a ClinicLive account to use the Services.
Patient Registration. Patients must provide certain information, including: name, address, mobile phone, email, as well as a user id and password. In addition, the Patient may communicate other health-related information to the Healthcare Provider during a video consultation via the Company app.
Provider Registration. To register, Providers must provide certain information about themselves and their practices including: Provider’s name, address, email, mobile and work phone; the Provider’s practice name, and the practice address, phone number and fax number; and a user id and password. We DO NOT collect bank account or other payment information.
Information We Collect from Providers.
Certain Services and Service Features are available to patients because their Providers use our Services. Providers may provide patient names and e-mail addresses to us so we may communicate with patients on behalf of Providers about the availability of certain Services.
Information We Collect Automatically.
We use the information that we gather about you for these purposes:
We may share the information that we collect about you, including personally identifiable information, as follows:
Healthcare Providers. As a Patient, your information will be shared with Healthcare Providers as directed and consented to by you. Our Services make your Assessments and related information available to your Healthcare Provider. We will not make information available to Providers other than those with whom you have requested that we share your Assessments. This Policy does not address how Healthcare Providers will use and disclose information obtained using The Company. If you would like this information, you should ask your Healthcare Provider directly for a copy of his/her Notice of Privacy Practices.
Service Providers. We may disclose information we collect from you to third party vendors, service providers, contractors or agents who perform functions on our behalf.
Business Transfers. If we are acquired by or merged with another company, if substantially all of our assets are transferred to another company, or if we are a part of a bankruptcy proceeding, we may transfer the information we have collected from you to the other Company.
In Response to Legal Process. We also may disclose the information we collect from you in order to comply with the law, a judicial proceeding, court order, or other legal process, such as in response to a subpoena in compliance with applicable privacy laws.

Clear GIFs (a.k.a. web bugs, web beacons, or pixel tags). Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies.

We may use clear GIFs, in connection with our Site to, for instance, track activity of Site visitors, help manage content, and help compile statistics about Site and Service usage. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers, to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, shared, or forwarded.
