At InnerHour, we are dedicated to maintaining the privacy and integrity of your Personal Information.
You acknowledge that you are providing your Personal Information out of your free will, either directly to InnerHour or through a third-party or your organisation. You will also have an option to withdraw your consent at any point, provided such withdrawal of consent is intimated to us in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Notwithstanding this, if you are accessing our platform through a third-party or your organisation, you will have an option to withdraw your consent at any point, provided you explicitly inform the third party or your organisation about such withdrawal of consent in writing, who would then inform us to take the appropriate action.
If you do not provide us with your Personal Information or if you withdraw the consent at any point in time, we shall have the option to not fulfill the purposes for which the said Personal Information was sought and we may restrict your use of the platform.
To enable you to engage with our services, we will use personal information about yourself - provided directly to us or to a third party or your organisation - to contact or identify you, such as your name, phone number, emergency contact number, gender, occupation, hometown, personal interests, your email address, reason(s) for cancelling an appointment with a healthcare professional, medical history and any other information that the Wellness Professional might require from you. We also collect information you provide from responses, assessments or the feedback you send to us. If you communicate with us by email or phone, any information provided in such communication may be collected as personal information (“Personal Information”).
The main reason we collect this Personal Information is to provide you a smooth, efficient and customised experience.We may use your Personal Information to:
- Identify and reach you;
- Resolve service and billing problems via telephone or email;
- Assist you in scheduling appointments, remind you of upcoming or follow-up appointments, as well as cancelled appointments;
- Provide you with further information, products and services and newsletters;
- Better understand users’ needs and interests;
- Personalise your experience;
- Run statistical research (such research will only use your information in an anonymous way and cannot be linked back to you);
- Detect and protect us against error, fraud, and other criminal activity;
- Make disclosures as may be required under applicable law;
- Improve our platform in order to better serve you;
- Allow us to better service you in responding to your customer service requests;
- Administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature;
- Quickly process your transactions.
Your information is used by the Wellness Professionals to make better assessments about your condition and hence to provide you with most suitable counselling service. Your Personal Information is held safe by the Wellness Professional working with you and not shared with other Professionals. However, there may be certain occasions when the Wellness Professionals collaborate to arrive at better diagnosis and tailor the counselling sessions. In such cases, only minimal information as required (about your condition/difficulty and not your name and other contact information) is shared with others.
Updating Personal Information
If your Personal Information changes, or if you need to update or correct your Personal Information or have any grievance with respect to the processing or use of your Personal Information, for any reason, you may send updates and corrections to us at email@example.com and we will take all reasonable efforts to incorporate the changes within a reasonable period of time. If you provide your Personal Information to a third-party platform from which you are using our services, InnerHour will not be able to make any changes to the same and you will have to contact the third-party platform in order to update your Personal Information.
Some Personal Information, such as your answers to online assessments, cannot be updated or deleted once submitted. If you would like us to remove your records from our system, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will attempt to accommodate your request if we do not have any legal obligation to retain such information.
Please note that we are required to retain certain information - by law or in keeping with professional standards - for record maintaining purposes (including but not limited to payment history, feedback, etc.), and there may also be residual information that will remain within our databases and other records, which, irrespective of any efforts by us to delete information, will not be removed from them.
