Additional Privacy Information for Washington Residents

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) is in accordance with the Privacy P (“Act”), which became effective on July 23, 2023.  To the extent activities are applicable to the Act, this Policy provides how CareScout, LLC (“CareScout”) collects, uses, and discloses consumer health data about Washington residents.  Consumer health data is defined by the Act to mean personal information that is linked or reasonably linkable to a consumer and that identifies the consumer’s past, present, or future physical or mental health status.  A consumer is defined as a Washington resident or an individual whose consumer health data is collected in Washington and acts only in an individual or household context.  A consumer does not include an individual acting in an employment context.  However, please note that not all consumer health data collected, used, or disclosed by CareScout is subject to the Act.  For example, the Act does not apply to consumer health data protected by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”).  GLBA and HIPAA apply to your consumer health data to the extent that CareScout is performing a service on behalf of your insurance company. 

Consumers are referred to in this Policy as “you” and “your” and CareScout is referred to in this Policy as “we”, “us,” and “our.”
