In this Privacy Policy, we do not include Protected Health Information in the definition of Personal Information because, as discussed in Section 2, Protected Health Information has different treatment under HIPAA (as defined below), other applicable laws, and the Customer Documents (as defined below).

Any terms capitalized herein but not defined shall have the meanings assigned to such terms in the applicable Terms of Use or Terms and Conditions.

Your use of the Services is governed by the applicable Terms of Use or Terms and Conditions of the respective Services.

1.4. Please note that some privacy rights and obligations may differ in certain locations based on local law, in which case eCW will comply with the local legal requirements. eCW reserves the right, at any time, to modify this Privacy Policy. If we make revisions that change the way we collect, use, or share Personal Information, we will post those changes in this Privacy Policy. If we make material changes to our Privacy Policy, we may also notify you by other means prior to the changes taking effect, such as by posting a notice on our Site or sending you a notification. You should review this Privacy Policy periodically so that you keep up to date on our most current policies and practices. eCW will note the effective date of the latest version of our Privacy Policy at the beginning of this Privacy Policy.

If you are a patient of a Provider, our use and disclosure of your Protected Health Information is governed by HIPAA and other applicable law and the Customer Documents with your Provider – not by this Privacy Policy.
