Protected health information we collect from you through the Site (as well as protected health information we collect directly from your Health Provider) may also be subject to your Health Provider’s notice of privacy practices, which describes in detail how your Health Provider uses and discloses your protected health information. When we act on behalf of your Health Provider, we have agreed that our collection, use and disclosure of your protected health information through the Site and directly from your Health Provider will be done in accordance with your Health Provider’s notice of privacy practices.

In the event of any inconsistency between this Policy and your Health Provider’s notice of privacy practices, the notice of privacy practices shall govern.
