Privacy Policy

Effective Date: September 23, 2022

VoiceFriend, LLC (dba “Icon”) a Massachusetts Limited Liability Company (“​Icon​”, “​we​” or “​us​”) is committed to protecting the privacy of all individuals (“​you​” or “​your​”) who utilize our Services (as defined in the Terms of Use). You might be a user of any publicly available part of our Services, or a Registered User of our Services. “​Registered Users​” are eligible individuals who have completed the registration process for accessing password protected portions of the Services. Please read the following statement to understand how we collect, use and safeguard the information you may provide to us via the Services.

1.​ ​WHAT INFORMATION DOES ICON COLLECT FROM YOU?

Via the Services, Icon may collect from you: (i) Personal Information (including Health Information), (ii) Non-Personal Information, including technical and other information. You may choose not to provide us with your Personal Information or, if you are a medical care provider, any Health Information of any of your patients. However, choosing not to provide certain requested Personal Information or Health Information, as applicable, may prevent you from accessing and taking advantage of certain services offered by Icon.

When we use the term “​Personal Information​” in this Privacy Policy, we mean information about you that is personally identifiable to you, such as your contact information (e.g., name, address, email address, or telephone number), or personally identifiable health or medical information (“​Health Information​”). When we use the term “​Non-Personal Information​”, we mean information about you but that does not identify you.

1.1           Personally Identifiable Information

a.​ ​Registered Users

At the time you become a Registered User of the Services, you may be asked to provide us Personal Information including your name, company name, address, phone number, email address so we can create an account for you. Your provision of any personally identifiable information is voluntary. However, if you choose not to provide the information requested, certain aspects or elements of the Services may not be available to you.

b.​ ​Health Information

If you are a resident, you may voluntarily submit your Health Information in connection with your use of the Services, which may include information or records relating to your medical or health history, health status and laboratory testing results, diagnostic images, and other health-related information. We may also collect Health Information about you prepared by the providers who provide the Services through the Platform such as medical records, treatment and examination notes, and other health related information.

Some of the Personal Information provided by you or collected by us may be “protected health information” that is governed by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”). Although Icon is not a “covered entity” under HIPAA, Icon is subject to certain aspects of HIPAA when performing services on behalf of a covered entity, such as skilled nursing facilities and healthcare providers. Icon is considered a “business associate” under HIPAA when providing services to “covered entities.” Icon will comply with applicable HIPAA requirements under those circumstances and its uses and disclosures of applicable Personal Information, including Health Information, will only be made in accordance with HIPAA and Icon’s contracts with covered entity clients.

c.​ ​Request a Demonstration of the Services

We may permit you to request a demonstration by filling out a form available on our website. We may collect Personal Information including first name, last name, job title, company name, state or region, phone number and email address from such forms.

d.​ ​Contacting Us

You may contact us by filling out a form available on our website for general inquiries including exploring a partnership with Icon, featuring Icon in a story, and providing a service to Icon. We may collect Personal Information including your first name, last name, title, email address, phone number and company name from such web forms. If you are a Registered User of our Services, you may provide certain Personal Information through the submission of a web form to obtain client support.

1.2​ ​Non-Personal Information

While you are browsing the Services, we automatically log your Internet protocol (“​IP​”) address, certain other technical information including your browser type and connection speed and your activities while using the Services (such as the pages you visited). When you access the Services from a mobile device, we may collect anonymous information from that device, including IP address, browser type, and device type, and other usage information about your device.

In order to personalize and enhance your experience on the Services, we may also collect information through the following technologies:

  • Web Beacons​. Web beacons are small graphic images or other web programming code that may be included in our site pages or other areas of the Services. Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of users of our Services. Unlike cookies, which are typically stored on your computer or mobile device’s hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages. Web beacons or similar technologies help us better manage content on our Services by informing us what content is effective, counting the number of users of the Services, monitoring how users navigate the Services, or counting how many emails, articles or links were actually opened or viewed.
  • Embedded Scripts​. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Services, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your computer, mobile or other device from our server or a third party service provider.
  • Cookies​. Cookies are small strings of text that are sent by the Services to your browser and then stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. We use cookies to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer the Services. We also use cookies to gather broad demographic information and to help identify you in respect to visits to the Services so that we may improve your user experience, and to determine whether you viewed the Services from a particular Internet link or advertisement. While a code in the cookie file enables the Services to label you as a particular user, including identifying you by user name, IP address, or other personally identifiable information, such cookie files are encrypted in order to protect your information. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but it is possible to change your browser setup so that it does not accept cookies. However, rejecting cookies may prevent you from taking advantage of certain portions of the Services.
  • Google Analytics​. We may use Google Analytics to help analyze how users use the Sites. Google Analytics uses Cookies to collect information such as how often users visit the Sites, what pages they visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to the Sites. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve our Sites, services, and offerings. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Site, rather than your name or other personally identifying information. Although Google Analytics plants a persistent Cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the Site, the Cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy.

2.HOW IS YOUR INFORMATION USED?

2.2 Non-personal Information​. We may use any Non-personal Information for any purposes as appropriate and subject to applicable law, since Non-personal Information cannot identify you as an individual. For example, we may use Non- personal Information collected to monitor visitor traffic patterns and Service usage, to improve our Services, to customize your browsing experience, to communicate with you, and otherwise to respond to your questions and suggestions regarding use of the Services as may be permitted by applicable law.
