American Pharmacy Purchase Alliance LLC (“APPA”) cares about your privacy and wants you to be familiar with how we collect, use, and disclose information.  This Privacy Policy describes our practices in connection with information that we or our service providers collect through the website, business compliance application and/or data requests (hereinafter the “Service”) operated and controlled by us from which you are accessing this Privacy Policy.  By providing personal or business information to us or by using the Service, you acknowledge that you have read and understand this Privacy Policy.

 

INFORMATION COLLECTION

We may ask you to submit business information in order for you to benefit from certain features (such as insurance underwriting requests) or to participate in a particular activity (such as patient engagement & clinical risk assessments).  You will be informed what information is required and what information is optional.

 

We may combine the information you submit with other information we have collected from you, whether on‑ or offline, including, for example, your purchase history.  We may also combine it with information we receive about you from other sources, such as NCPDP, publicly available information sources (including information from your publicly available social media profiles), and other third-party information providers.

 

If you submit any information relating to another individual to us, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit us to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

SENSITIVE INFORMATION

Unless we specifically request or invite it, we ask that you not send us, and you not disclose, any sensitive personal information (e.g., Social Security numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or philosophical beliefs, sex life or sexual orientation, criminal background, or trade union membership) on or through the Service or otherwise to us.

 

HOW WE USE AND DISCLOSE INFORMATION

We use and disclose information you provide to us as described to you at the point of collection.

 

Where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent to our use of your information at the point of information collection.  We may also use information from or about your business as necessary to perform a contract, to comply with a legal obligation or for our legitimate business interests.  We may also rely on other legal bases, specifically for:

We will engage in these activities to manage our contractual relationship with you and/or to comply with a legal obligation.
