Direct Virtual Care, LLC d/b/a Ohla Medical (“Ohla,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) respects your privacy and are committed to protecting it through our compliance with this policy. This policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit our websites, applications, and other online products and services that link to this policy (collectively, the “Services”) or when you otherwise interact with us, and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.

Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our Services. By accessing or using the Services, you agree to this privacy policy. This policy may change from time to time (see Changes to Our Privacy Policy). Your continued use of the Services after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates. 

1. Information We Collect About You and How We Collect It

We collect several types of Personal Information from and about users of our Services as described below. “Personal Information” means any information that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other information reasonably linkable to you with or without other identifying information in our possession.

There are three general categories of Personal Information we collect: (A) Information you provide to us; (B) Information we automatically collect from your use of the Services; (C) Information we collect from third parties.

  1. Information You Provide to Us  

The information we collect on or through our Services may include:

  • Account Information: When registering or creating an account for our Services, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, phone number, or other details to create your account. 
  • Transaction Information. When you conduct a transaction with us or a third party through the Services, you may provide information to complete the transaction, such as payment information (for example, credit card information or financial account information for another type of payment), demographic information (for example, age, date of birth, gender, or zip code).
  • Information that you provide by filling in forms through our Services. This includes information provided at the time of registering to use the Services or in order to request our Services. We may also ask you for information when you request technical or customer support, communicate with us, or apply for a job with us.
  1. Information Collected Automatically  

As you navigate through and use our Services, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about you, your devices, browsing actions, and patterns, including:

  • Log Information. We collect information related to the ways in which you interact with the Services, such as referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages and content viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time you used the Services, the frequency of your use of the Services, error logs, and other similar information.
  • Location-Related Information. We may collect information about your location, such as your IP address or zip code.
  • Cookie Information. We and our service providers may use various technologies to collect information on how you use the Services, or how your devices access the Services, such as cookies, web beacons, mobile device identifiers, and other technologies. We do not support the Do Not Track browser option.
  1. Information We Collect from Other Sources

We may obtain additional information about you from third parties and use it as described in this policy. This may include combining the information that we collect from you with information about you that we obtain from such third parties and information derived from any Services we provide. 

2. Note on Protected Health Information

Please note that this policy does not apply to your health or medical information that is protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”), also called “Protected Health Information” or “PHI.” In accessing and using the Services, we may collect and request that you provide information as described above (Information We Collect About You and How We Collect It) that we do not consider to be PHI. 

However, in using certain parts of the Services, you may provide information that is considered PHI and protected by HIPAA. Ohla is not a “covered entity” under HIPAA, but in some cases may be a “business associate” of the healthcare providers you interact with in the Services. To the extent Ohla is a "business associate," and solely in its role as a business associate, Ohla will use and disclosure your PHI in compliance with HIPAA and any applicable state laws regulating medical information. Any information that does not constitute PHI under applicable laws may be used or disclosed in any manner permitted under this Privacy Policy. PHI does not include information that has been de-identified in accordance with applicable laws.

The healthcare providers that you will interact with and who will perform the health care services and/or medical care within the Ohla Services are not employees or agents of Ohla. By accessing or using any part of the Services, you are acknowledging and authorizing your PHI to be used and disclosed by and on behalf of OpenLoop Healthcare Partners, PC, and its affiliates (together, the “Provider Group”). The Provider Group has its own privacy policy (the “Notice of Privacy Practices”) that describes how it uses and discloses PHI, and by accessing or using the Services, you are acknowledging receipt of the Notice of Privacy Practices from the Provider Group.

3. Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

The technologies we use for the automatic data collection listed above may include:

  • Cookies (or browser cookies). A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience in our Services. This type of information is collected to make the Services more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.
  • Web Beacons. Pages of our Services may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity). 

You may refuse to accept browser cookies by activating the appropriate setting on your browser. However, if you select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of our Services. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you direct your browser to our Services.

Some content or applications on the Services are served by third parties, including content providers and application providers. These third parties may use cookies alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use our Services. The information they collect may be associated with your personal information or they may collect information, including personal information, about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based (behavioral) advertising or other targeted content. 

We do not control these third parties' tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.
