Emergent Travel Health Privacy Policy

Emergent Travel Health Inc. (together with its affiliates, “Emergent Travel Health”) protects the privacy of personal information that you may provide to us.

Purpose This Privacy Policy explains what Emergent Travel Health does with personal information that you provide to us, including identifiers such as your name, mailing or email address, age or medical information. It also describes how your personal information will be protected, who we may share it with and for what purposes. This Policy does not apply to information that is provided offline and it only applies to users in the United States where our activities occur.

Registration Some but not all of our services require registration. This allows us to send you information, provide services to you or contact you about Emergent Travel Health products and services. We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights and choices, although some of the functionality and features available may change or no longer be available to you. For instance, if you decline to register or to provide all information requested by us, it may not be possible for you to gain access to certain parts of our site or for you to receive all materials, information or services. Any difference in the service or product requested are related to the value provided.

Categories of Information We Collect The categories of personal information we collect from you is based on the specific program for which you register. Requested information may include identifiers such as your first and last name, mailing or email address; demographic information such as your age, birth date or gender; payment and commercial information such as your credit or debit card information and billing information; professional or employment-related information such as your medical license information or information about organization and position; and medical information. We may also collect inferences based on the information described above and other information described in this Privacy Policy. We attempt to limit our collection of personal information to what is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is to be used. Please also see the “Registration” and “Collection of Computer Information” sections for additional information about the categories of personal information that we collect.

Consolidation of Information We CollectMany persons register for more than one Emergent Travel Health program or service. We may combine your personal information as with information collected from other sources and store it together. This helps us keep track of all of your preferences in one organized place, and helps us provide information to you based on a more informed review of your requests.

Data IntegrityEmergent Travel Health takes reasonable steps to ensure that personal information we collect is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete and current.

Collection of Computer InformationWhen you visit our websites, we and third parties on our websites collect internet or other electronic network activity information about you using techniques such as cookies, pixel tags, internet (or action) tags, Graphics Interchange Format (GIFs), and other similar technologies. This type of information allows us to evaluate interest in our websites and perform other market research activities, such as surveying browsing habits on our websites. It also allows us to monitor traffic to our websites.

Consent to Provide Your Information to Emergent Travel HealthWe may request your consent to collect your personal information when you seek to register for an Emergent Travel Health program or service. In making a request for program or service, we also explain what you are registering to receive and how we plan to use your information. We also offer you the option of discontinuing your consent (“opting out” or “unsubscribing”) if you later decide that you no longer want to participate in that program or receive that service. If we wish to use this information for purposes incompatible from those for which it was initially collected, we will offer a way to opt out of this other use.

Sharing Your Information With Third-PartiesExcept as specified in this Privacy Policy, Emergent Travel Health will not share your personal information with unaffiliated third parties who are not our business partners for their own separate use unless we have obtained your consent to do so. When you provide personal information to Emergent Travel Health, it will be accessible to some of our business partners and may be used by those business partners to send commercial email messages to you. Your personal information may also be shared with third party vendors or service providers who assist us in improving and providing our services, including for business purposes such as customer service, market research, security and performance monitoring, data hosting, auditing, and data processing. Emergent Travel Health takes steps to address the ways in which business partners and other third-parties to whom we disclose personal information may use and protect that information. There may also be instances where Emergent Travel Health may be required to share your personal information with third parties who are not our business partners and who have not been retained by us, such as health authorities to report possible adverse drug experiences, during inspections or audits, pursuant to order of courts or other governmental agencies, or in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of a website, a merger, consolidation, asset sale, initial public offering, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy. We also may share aggregate, deidentified, or anonymous information. Many entities receiving personal information under these conditions have privacy requirements that apply to their handling of your personal information.

In addition, where you register for and/or participate in one of our text message programs, we may share and combine your telephone number and other personal information with demographic and other information from third-party service providers in order to improve our services and provide you with information and products that are of interest to you. We do not sell personal information to third parties in the traditional sense. We do, however, permit third parties to collect the information described above through our websites and disclose such information to third parties for business purposes as described in this Privacy Policy, including but not limited to providing advertising on our websites and elsewhere based on users’ online activities over time and across different sites, services, and devices (so-called “interest-based advertising”). The information practices of these third parties are not covered by this Privacy Policy.

Sharing Your Information Within the Emergent Travel Health Group of CompaniesThe information that you provide to Emergent Travel Health may sometimes be shared among Emergent Travel Health affiliates. This may mean that your personal information may be transferred outside of the US to Emergent Travel Health affiliates in other countries.

Security of Your InformationWe use appropriate safeguards to protect your personal information from loss, misuse or alteration. Of course, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information. We encourage you to be mindful that internet transmissions are not always secure or error-free and to guard your own computer and password against unauthorized access by others.

Links to Other SitesThis Privacy Policy applies only to this website and not to third party websites. We may provide links to other websites which we believe may be of interest to our visitors but which are not under our control. We cannot guarantee the privacy standards of websites to which we link or be responsible for the contents of websites other than this website. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any linked, non-Emergent Travel Health website.

Transfer of Your InformationWhen Emergent Travel Health transfers personal information to countries other than the country where the information was provided, we do so in compliance with applicable privacy laws and regulations. We attempt to protect personal information entrusted to us no matter what country it is stored in or transferred to and to have appropriate procedures in place to help ensure the security of your personal information.

Protection of ChildrenEmergent Travel Health will not knowingly collect, use or disclose personal information from a minor under the age of 13, without obtaining prior consent from a parent or guardian. Emergent Travel Health abides by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in the United States, and respects similar laws and regulations of other countries that protect the privacy of children. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 provide personal information to us, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child to inform him or her that we must have parental or guardian consent before receiving information about him or her.

AccountabilityOur privacy practices are periodically reviewed to verify compliance with this Privacy Policy.

Your Rights and ChoicesWe encourage you to regularly update the personal information that you provide to us, such as a new mailing or email address, so that we may most efficiently and accurately provide information or services to you. In addition, depending on where you live, you may be able to request access, correction, deletion, transfer, or objection to further processing of your personal information. Once we receive your request, it will be subject to verification of the identity of the requesting individual so that we may protect your personal information from unauthorized access or alteration by third parties. If you would like to use an authorized agent registered with the California Secretary of State to exercise your rights, we may request evidence that you have provided such agent with power of attorney or that the agent otherwise has valid written authority to exercise rights on your behalf. To submit a request with respect to your personal information, please contact our Chief Compliance Officer at the address or email address provided below or click here. California residents can also submit requests by calling 855-894-4986.

Updated Privacy PolicyThis Privacy Policy is effective as of January 1, 2020. Emergent Travel Health may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. Notice of material changes to the Privacy Policy will be prominently posted on our website.

“Do Not Track” SignalsSome internet browsers include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” signals. We do not honor such “Do Not Track” signals.
