Online Privacy Policy for Oula Health

Effective Date: December 17, 2020

Last Updated: December 17, 2020

Oula Health, Inc. (“Oula Health,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) is a company that collects and provides information to users of our website and any interactive mobile application that Oula Health may develop from time to time ((the “App,” and collectively, the “Sites”) regarding obstetrics, prenatal and midwifery care. We value your relationship with us and are dedicated to protecting the privacy of your personal information.

The Sites are owned, operated, licensed, and controlled by Oula Health. This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy” or “Policy”) describes the types of personal information we collect from our customers, website visitors, and other individuals (collectively, “you”) when they visit our Sites. This Policy also describes how we use your personal information, under what circumstances we may share it and with whom, and your rights and choices regarding that information. For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means any individually identifiable information about an individual, including but not limited to name, e-mail address, telephone number, or any other identifier that permits the physical or online contacting of a specific individual.

Please note that your health and medical information and other personal information collected for purposes of providing healthcare is regulated by the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and similar federal and state laws (collectively “protected health information”), including the privacy and security protections of those laws. Accordingly, this Policy does not pertain to protected health information. Any coverage of protected health information in this Policy is incidental and provided merely to enhance your understanding of our data collection and use practices, and does not waive or override our obligations under other laws. Please visit our Patient Notice of HIPAA Privacy Practices for more information regarding our collection and use of protected health information.

This Policy also does not apply to third-party sites, products, or services, even if they link to our Sites, and we encourage you to read the privacy policies of any third-party site with which you choose to interact. Where links to third-party sites are integrated in our Sites, we will make every effort to clearly mark them as such.

The Sites may use cookies and similar technologies to improve user experience, for performance and analytics, and to customize and enhance our content, products, and services. A “cookie” is a small text file that a web server stores in browser software. A browser sends cookies to a server when the browser makes a connection to that server (for example, when requesting a web page from the same domain that created the cookie).  

The general purpose of cookies is to remember a browser over time and distinguish one browser instance (or user) from all others. Some cookies and other technologies may track the personal information users provide when they interact with a site, and may store such personal information. We use first-party and third-party cookies to ensure that our Sites function properly, to understand how individuals use and engage with our Sites and to analyze and improve our Site. 

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to block or delete all cookies in your browser’s settings using the links provided below. Please note that if you block essential cookies, certain parts of the Sites may not function properly.

California residents additionally have the right to request information regarding third parties to whom Oula Health has disclosed certain categories of personal information during the preceding year for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes under California’s “Shine the Light” Law. Personal information under this California law means any information that identified, described, or was able to be associated with an individual at the time of disclosure. We do not disclose this type of personal information to third parties for their own purposes, and we permit you to opt-out of any disclosures of non-identifiable personal information. However, if you are a California resident and would like to inquire further, please contact us. You must include your full name, email address and postal address in your email or mail request so that we can verify your California residence and respond.

The privacy and security of your personal information is deeply important to us.

Your personal information is accessible to only a limited number of personnel who need access to the information to perform their duties. Please note, however, that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.

  1. International Data Transfers

Oula Health offers its obstetrics, prenatal and midwifery care, and related products and services, to individuals in the United States only. As such, our Sites are operated from the United States and intended only for customers and web visitors located in the United States. Any collection of personal information from individuals located outside the United States is unintentional and/or incidental. 

That said, it is possible that your personal information is transferred outside of your state, country, or other governmental jurisdiction in order for Oula Health to render the collection, use, and sharing practices disclosed elsewhere in this Privacy Policy. Those jurisdictions may have data protection rules that are different from those of your jurisdiction. If so, we will take measures to ensure that any such transfers comply with applicable data protection laws and that your personal information remains protected to the standards described in this Privacy Policy. Personal information transferred to another country may be subject to lawful access requests by courts, law enforcement agencies, or other government authorities in those other countries.
