6. HIPAA and PHI

HIPAA provides specific protections for the privacy and security of PHI and restricts how PHI is used and disclosed. QRepublik may only use and disclose your PHI in the ways permitted by your Healthcare Provider(s). If you choose to use the Services, you agree that QRepublik may use and disclose your PHI in the same way it uses and discloses your Personal Information that is not PHI.

8. How We Use Information
We use the information we collect, including Personal Information, to provide and continuously improve the Services. In particular, we use this information to: (a) help Patient Users consolidate important medical information; (b) enable Patient Users to transmit important medical information to trusted care providers; (c) communicate patient-reported information to patient- selected care providers; and (d) send Patient Users alerts to help better manage health concerns. When QRepublik users use the Services to query state immunization registries to access personal and/or family immunization records, QRepublik will collect user-reported information (e.g., First Name, Last Name, Date of Birth, Sex, cellphone number, and/or e-mail). QRepublik retrieves and stores information from state immunization registries such as but not limited to immunization records (including line-level detail about shots such as when and where immunizations were administered, immunization manufacturer, and other relevant clinical information), immunization forecasting schedules, allergies, contradictions, immunities, home address, and renderings of official state-issued immunization reports and certificates. QRepublik primarily stores immunization data for the user’s enjoyment. QRepublik reports deidentified immunization-related data (e.g., number of immunization records obtained using QRepublik) to state immunization registries and other public health partners. We may use information that is neither Personal Information nor PHI (including non-PHI Personal Information that has been de-identified and/or aggregated) to better understand who uses QRepublik and how we could enhance our products and services.
9. Disclosure of Information
We may disclose certain information that we collect from Patient Users. In particular, we may disclose certain information, including Personal Information and/or PHI, when: (a) Patient Users transmit medical data to patient-selected care providers (by using QRepublik to scan a care provider’s QRepublik QR code); (b) we believe that Patient Users experience emergency medical situations; and (c) when Patient Users use QRepublik to remotely update care providers. QRepublik will not disclose Personal Information without your consent. We do not sell e-mail addresses to third parties. We may, however, share your e-mail addresses with our business partners to enable them to help QRepublik customize our advertising. We may use information that is neither Personal Information nor PHI (including non-PHI Personal Information that has been de-identified and/or aggregated) to better understand who uses QRepublik and how we could enhance our products and services. We may also need to disclose your Personal Information or any other information we collect if we determine in good faith that such disclosure is needed to: (a) comply with applicable law, regulation, court order, or other legal process; (b) protect the rights, property, or safety of QRepublik or another party; (c) enforce the Agreement or other agreements with you; or (d) respond to claims that any posting or other content violates third-party rights.
