Consumer health data collection and use

Consumer health data is personal information that is linked or reasonably linkable to a consumer and that identifies the consumer’s past, present, or future physical or mental health status, such as: (i) individual health conditions, treatment, diseases, or diagnosis; (ii) social, psychological, behavioral, or medical interventions; (iii) health-related surgeries or procedures; (iv) use or purchase of prescribed medication; (v) diagnoses or diagnostic testing, treatment, or medication; (vi) information relating to researching, obtaining, or seeking gender affirming care services; (vii) reproductive or sexual health information; (viii) data that identifies a consumer seeking health care services or status; or (ix) information used to associate or identify a consumer with the information described in (i) - (viii) above that is derived or extrapolated from non-health information.

We may collect and use your consumer health data with your explicit consent or as reasonably necessary to provide services that you have requested, such as personal tax services. This may include using your consumer health data to establish and maintain our relationship with you (including acting upon any of your requests), to customize or improve services offered to you, to comply with applicable legal, regulatory or professional requirements, and to protect our rights or property and that of our users.
