Information you actively provide us

The Service is available only to registered users. You may register with the Platform directly or through your social network account.

Registration. If you register with the Platform directly, we will seek basic information from you such as your name, email address, mobile phone number, physical address and other information that personally identifies you or could be used to personally identify you (the “Personal Information“).

If you choose to register with your social network account (Facebook, etc.), you give us access to retrieve your basic profile information on the social network. The particular categories of information we retrieve from your social network account are the scope of information that the social network makes available to us by default, according to your privacy settings there. The information we collect in this manner typically includes your full name, email address, profile picture and other profile information such as date of birth and gender – to the extent you have these in your profile and the social network gives us access to them.

Payment information. Our third-party billing providers will collect your payment method and billing information for the purpose of collecting the fees applicable to you. The payment information we may store if permitted by you includes your payment card type and the last four digits of the payment card.

Other information. We may also collect additional information, which may be Personal Information, as otherwise described to you at the point of collection or pursuant to your consent.

These uses and disclosures are described in this Privacy Policy. To the extent any provision in the Air Doctor Authorization shall be inconsistent with this Privacy Policy or other provisions of the Terms of Use, then the provisions in the Air Doctor Authorization shall only apply with respect to your PHI.
