What We Collect and How We Collect It
To ensure that we provide you with the best possible experience, we will store, use, and share information about you in accordance with this Policy.
Information You Provide to Us
Personal Information is any information that can be used to individually identify you from a larger group, such as data including, but not limited to, your:
first and last name
a picture of your image or likeness
social security number
sex assignment at birth
school student ID number
information relating to your health and well-being
You may provide us Personal Information when you:
register yourself with the Services
create a profile with the Services
upload documents and other information to your profile with the Services
The information that you provide in each case will vary. In some cases, we may ask you to create a username and password that should only be known to you. If you provide Personal Information relating to someone else, please ensure that you have the proper authorization and consent from that person before submitting or sharing their Personal Information.
Important Notice About Your Health Information. You should also understand that much of the Personal Information you provide may be related to your health, diagnoses, vaccination status, health insurance card, and physical examination results. Exxat is not a health provider. Exxat is a platform that enables health professional schools to manage internships for its students at clinical sites. Unless otherwise established in an agreement between Exxat and a Covered Entity (i.e., a doctor, pharmacy, or insurer) as defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), Exxat does not collect “Protected Health Information” as defined under HIPAA. Therefore, your Personal Information is not entitled to the same protections as regulated data under HIPAA.
Please also note that any Personal Information relating to your health, diagnosis, vaccination status, health insurance card, or physical examination results may be shared with third parties. When such Personal Information is shared with third parties, the entirety of that Personal Information, including all health documents provided to Exxat, may be shared with the applicable third party.
