Privacy Policy

We Are Here, Inc. (“We Are Here”, “we”, “us”, our”) provides online products and services (collectively, the “Services”) through our mobile applications and (collectively, the “Site”) that may, among other things, provide you with tools to engage in supportive care assistance for those facing cancer, their caregivers and their support team. We provide this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to describe the information We Are Here collects from users of the Site (“Users”,“you”), how that information is stored, how we use that information, what information other members can see when they use the Site and how We Are Here Partners (defined below) receive data and how we may use and disclose this information when the Site is accessed through any device. It also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your information and how you can manage and update this information. Some online services offered by or affiliated with We Are Here may be governed by a separate privacy policy. We suggest you review each of the privacy policies for the services you are wishing to receive.

For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, “Personally Identifiable Information” means any information that, by itself or in combination with other information, identifies or can reasonably be used to identify an individual, such as name, email address, telephone number, address, or date of birth. Personally Identifiable Information does not include information that is anonymized, or publicly available information that has not been combined with non-public Personally Identifiable Information.

When you sign up or use We Are Here, we ask you to confirm that you’ve read and agree to our Privacy Policy. This means that by submitting Personally Identifiable Information and other information to the Site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of such information as set out in this Privacy Policy.

Generally, you may browse the Site and/or our applications without providing any Personally Identifiable Information. However, we ask that you provide information at various times and locations through the Site. In certain components of the Site, you may also provide certain medical information that may be protected under applicable laws. We Are Here is neither a “covered entity” nor a “business associate” under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, Public Law 104-191, and its related regulations and amendments from time to time (collectively, “HIPAA”). It is important to remember that, while state-specific privacy laws may apply, HIPAA does not necessarily apply to an entity or person simply because there is health information involved, and HIPAA may not apply to your transactions or communications with We Are Here.

Any medical or health information that you provide that is subject to specific protections under applicable state laws will be used and disclosed only in accordance with such applicable laws. However, any information that is not protected under such applicable state laws may be used or disclosed in any manner permitted under our Privacy Policy.

We collect information you provide when you sign up with We Are Here, including your email address.

We also collect information about how supporters can help patients. We may use this information to suggest services that may be of use to the patient or caregiver and, with your consent, apply for and/or enable those services on your behalf. When you use our coaching services, we arrange 3rd party coaching services and/or you use Peer Guidance and navigation services, we may collect information regarding your past and present medical history (i.e., diagnosis, medical events, medications, etc.). We may also collect financial information in order to determine eligibility for certain programs and benefits. Finally, we may collect information regarding your insurance coverage and benefits.
