Health InformationSome information TMates collects constitutes protected health information (“PHI”) under the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”). As set forth above, TMates Medical Group (or your own medical provider if you do not use an TMates Medical Group Provider) will provide you with a Notice of Privacy Practices describing its collection, use, and disclosure of your PHI, not TMates, LLC. TMates is a “business associate” (as that term is used under HIPAA) that provides services to and for TMates Medical Group, other health care providers and health care plans, referred to as “covered entities” under HIPAA, and enters into business associate agreements with these covered entities. TMates will use and disclose PHI only in accordance with the business associate agreements and HIPAA. We may de-identify your Personal Information so that it no longer reasonably identifies you. In this case, we may use this de-identified data without restriction and for any purpose, including to improve our Website, Application, and products and services.
