We may share your Personal Information that you provide to SimpliScreen with any of our parent companies, subsidiary companies, affiliates or other trusted related entities that have agreed to Our privacy standards as set out in this Policy and to treat your Personal Information in the same manner we do. For example, when you access the SimpliScreen Platform to answer screening questions before accessing a Facility, the information you input to answer those questions is collected by SimpliScreen and provided to the Facility.

4) PROTECTED HEALTH INFORMATION WE OBTAIN FROM YOU. Through Your use of SimpliScreen’s Platform, You may provide SimpliScreen with and SimpliScreen may be obligated to use certain PHI. SimpliScreen is committed to complying with the Privacy Rule and the Security Rule promulgated pursuant to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, including 45 C.F.R.

Accordingly, in providing services to or on behalf of You, SimpliScreen, for example, will be permitted to use and disclose PHI for treatment, payment, and operations consistent with the HIPAA Standards, without obtaining authorization. PHI does not include summary health information or information that has been de-identified in accordance with the standards for de-identification provided for in the HIPPA Standards.
- b) SimpliScreen also agrees to only use or disclose PHI to the extent permitted or required by any business associate agreement, any other agreements between You and SimpliScreen (and amendments thereto), or by law. Except as otherwise provided herein, SimpliScreen will not use or disclose PHI in a manner that would violate HIPAA's Security and Privacy Rules if such use or disclosure were made by You. In particular, SimpliScreen may use or disclose PHI (1) to fulfill its obligations as set out in any agreement between the parties evidencing their business relationship, or (2) as required by applicable laws, rules or regulations, or by an accrediting or credentialing body to which You must disclose such information, or (3) as permitted by any business associate agreement, or any other agreements between the parties evidencing their business relationship (if consistent the HIPAA Standards) or the HIPAA Standards, or (4) as permitted by the HIPAA Standards as if such use or disclosure were made by You.
- c) SimpliScreen shall implement administrative, physical, and technical safeguards that reasonably protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of any Electronic PHI (“ePHI”) that it creates, maintains, or transmits on Your behalf as required by 45 CFR §164.314.
