Bamboo Health Privacy Policy

Last updated: June 9, 2022

Bamboo Health (“Bamboo Health”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) cares about your privacy. This Privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice”) describes how Bamboo Health collects, uses, and otherwise processes your personal information in connection with any associated websites that post or link to this Privacy Notice, including www.bamboohealth.com (the “Sites”).

This Privacy Policy does not apply to (i) our collection of data through our Bamboo Health platforms, mobile applications, products or services provided to our customers, or (ii) our privacy practices relating to Bamboo Health employees or other personnel.

Customer Data

In certain situations, Bamboo Health functions as a service provider for our customers. In the course of providing services for such customers, we may collect your personal information on behalf of our business customers. We refer to this type of personal information as “Customer Data.” We collect and process Customer Data on behalf of our business customers subject to restrictions set forth in our contracts with them, including HIPAA business associate agreements. This Privacy Notice does not apply to our collection and processing of Customer Data. We recommend referring to the privacy notice of the Bamboo Health customer with which you have a relationship for information on how they engage service providers, like us, to collect and process Customer Data on their behalf.

Information Bamboo Health Collects About You

Sometimes we collect personal information automatically when an individual interacts with our Sites and sometimes, we collect personal information directly from an individual. At times, we may collect personal information about an individual from other sources and third parties, even before our first direct interaction.

Personal Information You Provide to Us

We may collect any personal information you provide to us when, for example, you contact us for support or other inquiries through the Sites. The types of personal information that we may collect include:

  • Contact Information: If you request additional information about our products or services, request customer support, use our “Contact Us” or similar features, register to attend our seminars, webinars, or other presentations, or download certain content, we generally require you to provide us with your contact information, including, your full name, interest, job title, company name, address, phone number, email address, and communications preferences.
  • Job Application Information: If you apply for available positions through our Sites, we may ask you to provide personal information including, your full name, date of birth, phone number, email address, career and educational history, areas of expertise, resumes or CVs, writing samples, letters of recommendation, social media profiles, demographic information, criminal record history, or other information which may be obtained in a background check.
  • Registration Information: If you register for any web-based or app-based online community that we host, or register to attend our seminars, webinars, or other presentations, we may ask you to provide registration information, including, a username, photo, and/or biographical information, such as your occupation, social media profiles, company name, and areas of expertise.
  • Newsletter: if you sign up to receive our newsletter, we may collect your name and email address.
  • User Submissions: If you publicly post any personal or other information to the Sites or any web-based or app-based online community that we host, which information may include your tips, updates, alerts, comments, feedback, or any other information that you voluntarily provide (your “Submissions”), we may display your Submissions on any of our Sites, apps, mobile platforms, or any web-based or app-based online community that we host.

Where an individual chooses to contact us, we may need additional information to fulfill their request or respond to their inquiry. We may provide additional privacy disclosures where the scope of the inquiry/request or the personal information we require fall outside the scope of this Privacy Notice. In that case, the additional privacy disclosures will govern how we may process the information the individual provides at that time.

Personal Information We Automatically Collect

As is true of most digital platforms, we and our third-party providers may also collect personal information from an individual’s device, browsing actions and website usage patterns automatically when visiting or interacting with our Sites, which may include log data (such as internet protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type, browser id, the URL entered and the referring page/campaign, date/time of visit, the time spent on our Sites and any errors that may occur during the visit to our Sites), analytics data (such as the electronic path taken to our Sites, through our Sites and when exiting our Sites, as well as usage and activity on our Sites); and location data (such as general geographic location based on the log data we or our third-party providers collect).

We and our third-party providers may use (i) cookies or small data files that are stored on an individual’s computer and (ii) other, related technologies, such as web beacons, pixels, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies and logging technologies (collectively, “cookies”) to automatically collect this personal information. For example, our Sites use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC (“Google”), to collect and view reports about the traffic on our Sites. More information about the use of Google Analytics for these analytical and non-advertising purposes can be obtained by visiting Google’s privacy policy here and Google’s currently available opt-out options are available here.

To manage cookies, an individual may change their browser settings to: (i) notify them when they receive a cookie, so the individual can choose whether or not to accept it; (ii) disable existing cookies; or (iii) automatically reject cookies. Please note that doing so may negatively impact an individual’s experience using our Services, as some features and offerings may not work properly or at all. Depending on an individual’s device and operating system, the individual may not be able to delete or block all cookies. In addition, if an individual wants to reject cookies across all browsers and devices, the individual will need to do so on each browser on each device they actively use. An individual may also set their email options to prevent the automatic downloading of images that may contain technologies that would allow us to know whether they have accessed our email and performed certain functions with it.

Our Sites may also implement the Google reCAPTCHA tool to help prevent spam and abuse. The reCAPTCHA tool collects hardware and software information from your device, which is sent to Google for purposes of providing, maintaining, and improving the reCAPTCHA tool as well as for general security purposes. This information is not used by Google for personalized advertising. Your use of the reCAPTCHA tool is subject to Google’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

For more information on our and third-party partners’ data collection and online advertising practices, please see the Third Party Tracking and Online Advertising section of this Privacy Notice.

Personal Information We Collect from Other Sources

We also obtain personal information from other sources, which we often combine with personal information we collect either automatically or directly from individuals.

We receive the same categories of personal information as described above from the following sources and third parties:

  • Corporate Affiliates: We may receive personal information from other companies owned or controlled by Bamboo Health, and other companies owning or under common ownership with Bamboo Health. This includes any subsidiaries (i.e., any organization we own or control) or our parent company (i.e., any organization that owns or controls us) and any subsidiaries it owns.
  • Service Providers: Our service providers that perform services solely on our behalf, such as email marketing providers, cloud providers, IT services, employment verification providers, and payment processors, collect personal information and often share some or all of this information with us in connection with the facilitation of our services.
  • Business Partners: When we offer co-branded services or engage in joint marketing activities with other businesses, we may receive your personal information from our business partners.
  • Social Media Platforms: When an individual interacts with us through various social media networks, we may receive some information about the individual that they permit the network to share with third parties. The data we receive is dependent upon an individual’s privacy settings with the network. Individuals should always review and, if necessary, adjust their privacy settings on third-party websites and networks before sharing information with us or the social media platform.
  • Third Parties Related to Employment Applications: If you apply for a job with Bamboo Health, we may receive information from your current or past employers, recruiters, third-party social media platforms and other third parties we use to obtain information about job applicants.
  • Information Providers: We may from time to time obtain information from third-party information providers from whom you have permitted to share your personal information, including marketing providers. We use this information to correct or supplement other personal information we collect. For example, we may obtain updated contact information from third-party information providers to reconnect with individuals.
  • Publicly Available Information: We may also collect personal information from publicly available sources, such as government records or publicly available websites, to supplement other personal information we collect.

We may aggregate, de-identify and/or anonymize any information collected through the Sites so that such information is no longer reasonably capable of being associated with you. We may use aggregated or anonymized information for any purpose, including for research and marketing purposes.

  • Sharing Consistent with Your Choices: We may share your information with sponsors, joint venture entities and other third parties, including entities for which we are acting as an agent, licensee, application host or publisher, that wish to send you information about their products and services that may be of interest to you, as determined by your choices in managing your communications preferences and other settings.
  • Business Transaction or Reorganization: We may also share your information if we sell, transfer, or otherwise share some or all of our assets to a third party in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of assets or similar transaction, or in the event of bankruptcy, or in diligence leading up to a potential corporate transaction. We may disclose personal information to a third party during negotiation of, in connection with, or as an asset in such a corporate business transaction.
  • Legal Purposes: We may disclose your personal information to meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or other legal obligation.

Third-Party Tracking and Online Advertising

We may share, or we may permit third-party online advertising networks, social media companies, and other third-party services, to collect information about your use of our Sites over time so that they may play or display ads that may be relevant to your interests on other websites or apps, or on other devices you may use. Typically, though not always, the information we share is provided through cookies or similar tracking technologies, which recognize the device you are using and collect information, including hashed data, clickstream information, browser type, time and date you visited the website and other information. This information is used to display targeted ads on or through our services or on other websites, apps, or services. We or the online advertising networks use this information to make the advertisements you see online more relevant to your interests. We may also display targeted advertising to you through social media platforms, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, TikTok, Twitter, Google, Pinterest, and others. These companies have interest-based advertising programs that allow us to direct advertisements to users who have shown interest in our services while those users are on the social media platform, or to groups of other users who share similar traits, such as likely commercial interests and demographics. These advertisements are governed by the privacy policies of those social media companies that provide them.

Google Analytics and Advertising. We may also utilize certain forms of display advertising and other advanced features through Google Analytics. These features enable us to use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick advertising cookie) or other third-party cookies together to inform, optimize, and display ads based on your past visits to our services.

You may control your advertising preferences or opt-out of certain Google advertising products by visiting the Google Ads Preferences Manager, currently available at https://google.com/ads/preferences, or by visiting NAI’s online resources at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices.

To learn more about interest-based advertising and how you may be able to opt-out of some of this advertising, you may wish to visit the Digital Advertising Alliance’s (DAA) resources and/or the Network Advertising Initiative’s (NAI) online resources, at www.aboutads.info/choices or http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and you can opt-out of receiving some interest-based advertisements on mobile apps by visiting http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices. You may also be able to limit interest-based advertising through the settings menu on your mobile device by selecting “limit ad tracking” (iOS) or “opt-out of interest-based ads” (Android).

Please note that when you opt out of receiving interest-based advertisements, this does not mean you will no longer see advertisements from us or on our online services. It means that the online ads that you do see from DAA program participants should not be based on your interests. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third-parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs. In addition, third parties may still use cookies to collect information about your use of our online services, including for analytics and fraud prevention as well as any other purpose permitted under the DAA’s Principles.

For more information about how we otherwise disclose personal information, please refer to the How Your Information May Be Shared section of our Privacy Notice.

Shine the Light Disclosure

The California “Shine the Light” law gives residents of California the right under certain circumstances to request information from us regarding the manner in which we share certain categories of personal information (as defined in the Shine the Light law) with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
