If you are a healthcare provider, during registration you will be asked to provide information regarding your professional qualifications as well as other Personal Information.
During registration or subsequently, you may choose to use certain features of the Application that will allow you to input other Personal Information with respect to your health, such as the medications you take, the date of your prescription, the number of refills you have made, how often you take your medication, the frequency you would like us to send you reminders to take your medication, whether you take your medication, your doctor’s name and the name of your pharmacy (“Health Information”). We will send you reminders to take your medications in accordance with this information.
You may also send family members or friends an invitation to be your “Med-Friend” by means of the Application, so that such Med-Friends will receive alerts regarding your compliance with your medication regime. By sending such invitation, you represent that you have the right to contact the Med-Friends and that you consent to our sending Personal Information about your medications and your compliance with your medication regime to the Med-Friends. Sharing of your Personal Information in this manner is solely your responsibility.
You may use the Application in order to share your Personal Information or other information with your doctor or healthcare providers. Such sharing may be enabled by inviting your healthcare provider to monitor your Personal Information, by accepting an invitation from your healthcare provider to download and use the Application, or otherwise using the Application settings to share your information with your healthcare provider; in these cases you consent to our sending Personal Information about your medications and your compliance with your medication regime with your healthcare providers. Confirm with your healthcare provider that they have sent you an invitation to download Medisafe. Such sharing of your information is at your discretion and is solely your responsibility.
If you are a healthcare provider using the Application to invite individuals under your supervision to use the Application, you agree not to include any Personal Information about you or your professional qualifications in the text of these invitations. We may also use your Personal Information in order to provide you with personalized third party content or links to third party sites that might interest you, as part of the feed on the Application. We provide this third party content and/or links to third party sites for information purposes only and are not liable for such content or sites.

While we take great care to keep your Personal Information confidential and secure, when you share your health or medication information with others or provide feedback regarding health matters, medications and otherwise, including by means of social media sites, or when you participate in a forum on the Application, any information disclosed that may be automatically made public, and such information will not be considered Personal Information by us. You should exercise caution when disclosing any information (including Personal Information) in such ways, as you do not know who will access or use such information and for what purposes. Your Personal Information will not be combined with other information and will not be used for other purposes, except as explained in this policy. Please note that we are not subject to medical secrecy obligations.
Ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the Personal Information and any other information that you provide in connection with your use of the Application is important.
