We encrypt all data in transit and at rest, in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability of 1996, as amended (“HIPAA”). Because of our proprietary algorithms associated with the Buoy Services, the Buoy product may automatically collect and store Protected Health Information (or “PHI,” as defined by HIPAA), without the interference of any Buoy employee. In the event that a Buoy employee interacts with PHI, that employee is permitted to do only if they are authorized and in compliance with Buoy’s Privacy Notice and internal security policies.
The Buoy Services do not replace your relationship with any doctor or other qualified healthcare provider and may not be appropriate for all medical conditions or concerns. If you think you may be having a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately.
