Your information may be collected, used, processed, transferred, and retained in the United States, which may be outside the region in which you are situated and may have different privacy or data protection legislation, and may therefore be subject to the laws of the United States.

The HIPAA Privacy Rule provides additional guidelines for the use and disclosure of electronic personal health information (“ePHI”). The covered entity in partnership with NeuroFlow is responsible for allowing patients the necessary rights and access to their ePHI. As a “business associate” as defined under HIPAA, NeuroFlow strives to comply with the HIPAA Privacy Rule by training employees on the proper handling of secure information and protecting and authenticating ePHI in our encrypted server.
How We Interact with Third Parties
Some of our services may interact directly with third party service providers. When you use a service with these third party service providers, we will not receive or store any information you provide to them nor will we provide any information to them without your consent.
- Secure messaging. Third parties may route secure messages from you to NeuroFlow through our Website or App. Your IP address, operating system, and browser type may be collected by the secure messaging from third party software providers, along with the information corresponding to your provider.
- Storing ePHI records. NeuroFlow may transmit these records to a HIPAA-compliant third party server to store and secure your information.
Your interactions with these third party service providers are outside of the purview of NeuroFlow. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy statements. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy statement of any website you visit.
NeuroFlow will share the information you provide to us with Capital BlueCross for plan administration purposes. Capital BlueCross may use this information to refer you for their care management programs or to refer you to their behavioral health vendor for further assistance. While Capital BlueCross may share the number of individuals using the NeuroFlow app with your employer-sponsored group health plan, no individually-identifiable information about you will be shared with your employer-sponsored group health plan.
