MyMenopauseRx, LLC (“MyMenopauseRx,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) recognizes the importance of protecting your privacy and personal information. Protecting your Personal Identifiable Information(PII) and your Protected Health Information(PHI) is our priority.
Collecting your health data helps us to provide you with a personalized online health experience. You may browse the Site and/or many of our applications without providing any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or Protected Health Information (PHI). However, we ask that you provide information at various times and locations through the Site.
We collect your name and email address when signing up or creating an account for our Site. Additional personal identifiable information such as, but not limited to: your age, address, phone number, payment information, etc. is collected when ordering lab testing or scheduling a menopause consultation.
Our online doctors office and lab testing services are designed for use by women 40 years of age and older. If you are younger than age 40, please do not provide any information to us through the Site. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from individuals under 18. If we learn we have collected any PII and or PHI from an individual under the age of 18, we will delete the information.
We use and disclose your Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to make payments, to run our healthcare operations and send you emails. We use and disclose your Protected Health Information (PHI) to provide you with medical care, to run our healthcare operations and to comply with regulations. We implement a range of technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect both your PII and your PHI. We use your email address to send you different types of emails, including but not limited to: emails that update the status of your care by an alert that a secure message is waiting for you in your patient dashboard on the MyMenopauseRx Site , emails when lab testing results are available on your patient dashboard, emails asking for feedback on your experience of using the service, marketing emails to notify you of services we provide, or emails if you create an account but do not complete a visit with one of our certified providers. We will share your email and name with third party email platforms to enable us to send aforementioned emails.
We also use your Personally Identifiable Information (PII) for payment for services you request offered by MyMenopauseRx. We share your PII and credit card details with Square, our online payment processor and they store them on our behalf. We share your Protected Health Information (PHI) with selected organizations that provide us with services to provide your treatment and to run our healthcare operations. As examples, we share your PHI with organizations that help us run and maintain the technology and security infrastructure that supports our Website and the care we provide. We also may share your health information with medical staff to ensure that we are providing a service that meets the appropriate standard of care. We share your PHI with the pharmacy if we give you a prescription and with intermediaries who enable us to send prescriptions electronically. If we order laboratory tests for you or if you “self order” laboratory testing, we share your PHI with the lab company that runs the tests. If a laboratory test we order for you finds a 'reportable' infection we may be required by law to share your PHI to your county health department.
We store information you provide us with whether you complete a visit or whether you do not complete a visit. We take the same precautions over your data regardless of whether you complete a visit.
We do not record video visits between our patients and our medical team.
We may use your Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or Protected Health Information (PHI) to tell you about health-related products and services.

The MyMenopauseRx website may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize MyMenopauseRx pages, or register with MyMenopauseRx Site or Services, a cookie helps MyMenopauseRx to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, and so on. When you return to the same MyMenopauseRx website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the MyMenopauseRx features that you customized. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the MyMenopauseRx services or websites you visit.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

We take a number of administrative, technical and physical safeguards to look after the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or Protected Health Information (PHI) that we hold electronically on our servers. But despite these safeguards, we cannot guarantee that our systems and your PII and PHI will not be hacked or otherwise compromised by unauthorized third parties.

After obtaining and checking your health records, you may discover an error that has not been recorded. HIPAA gives you the right to make changes to your health information to correct mistakes. Any request to change your health record must be submitted in writing. We are unable to delete information from your medical record, but we can correct a mistake. In addition, at your request, we can de-activate your secure account so that you can no longer access it with your username/password.
You have a right to an accounting of disclosures of health data. If requested, we are required to provide information about who has received your health data. We follow the most current HIPAA guidelines. You are entitled to one disclosure accounting in a 12 month period at no charge. We will charge a fee for any additional accounting in a 12 month period. An accounting does not include disclosures to carry out treatment, healthcare operations or payment.
You have the right to restrict sharing of their health data for certain purposes other than treatment, payment, or healthcare operations. You can also dictate to whom their health information can be shared, such as family members, friends, caregivers, legal representatives, or other entities. They can also request that information is not shared with other individuals or groups. To restrict sharing of your health data, please submit your request in writing since MyMenopauseRx platform is only designed for a telehealth visit with the intended recipient.
If you believe your health data has been accessed by an unauthorized individual, has been impermissibly disclosed, or you believe that any aspect of HIPAA Rules has been violated, you have the right to file a complaint.
HIPAA does not have a private cause of action, which means that it is not possible for an individual to take legal action against a HIPAA-covered entity or business associate for a privacy breach or HIPAA Rule violation.
Due to the electronic nature of our service we are limited in our ability to agree to such requests, but feel free to print this page for your records.
