This document is a description of what data we keep about you and how we can use it

This page explains the privacy and security of the information you submit to Health Horizon. It dictates what
information we keep, what we don’t keep and was is and isn’t public.

Health Horizon (“Health Horizon” or “the platform”) is an online listing of profiles of health innovations
(“innovations”), health innovation professionals (other “users”), organisations (“organisations”) and the relationships
between these three entities. Collectively, this information we refer to as “content” or “information”. The platform is
accessed through the URL ( (“website”). The platform is owned
by the company Health-Innovate (“we”, “us”, also trading under “Health Horizon”), an Australian company.

By accessing the website you (“you”) become a “user”, whether or not you create an account with us. There are two types
of users, and these types have different levels of privacy on the platform. The two types of users are those who use
Health Horizon simply to find and track innovations (“consumers”) and those who have created or joined an organization
on the platform (“professionals”). Professionals are linked to organizations and health innovations and use the platform
for use the platform to manage or review health innovations.

If you have questions about this privacy policy, please contact us at

We will let you know if things change, and we can delete your private data on request.

If there are changes to this policy we will post them here and send a notification to your account email address.

If you object to this or future privacy policies you can contact us and we can remove your account, and delete any
information you have provided us.

We only collect data you give us, data that’s publicly available or data that’s provided by a third party according to
its terms of use.

We only collect data you give us, data that’s publicly available or data that’s provided by a third party according to
its terms of use.

When you submit your email to Health Horizon or contact us you are giving us information. This information may include
your IP address, name, physical address, email address, occupation, and other demographic information. By giving us this
information, you consent to your information being collected, used, disclosed, and stored by us, only as described in
our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

When you use Health Horizon, we store cookies on your computer. We use those cookies to collect information about when
you visit our website, when you use the services, your browser type and version, your operating system, and other
similar information. You may turn off cookies that have been placed on your computer by following the instructions on
your browser, but if you block our cookies, it may be more difficult (and maybe even impossible) to use our platform.

We also collect information from other sources. In our mission to make every health innovation searchable and trackable,
we perform our own research to achieve this. If you work in health innovation professionally, we may find and record
information about you, your organisation, your innovations and the relationships between these entities. Information we
collect includes things like your name, your organisation, your contact details and your role in the health innovation
ecosystem. We get this information from your public participation in social media websites, by searching the internet,
reviewing conference proceedings, checking your organisation’s websites or querying third parties.

In some cases third parties may give us information as part of their terms of use. The most common example of this is
that if your organisation is part of a professional association, and we partner with that association, they may provide
us with your contact details to offer you special partner accounts.

Other users may provide us information about you. Much like on other social media platforms, because some of our content
is user generated, other users may upload content about you. You may not always be aware of this, and we might not be
aware of it either. One example of this is if a user uses our platform to invite you to use Health Horizon, that user
provides us with your email for the invitation.

Some advanced features that you control will require us to share your information

about your IP address and which page you’re visiting on our site, and they may set a cookie to make sure the feature

There are three privacy levels on HH data Private, Unidentifiable, and Public

“Private” data. Only you can see Private data. We can see and use this data as described in section Private data
use and disclosure
. Information about you is generally Private. An example of this kind of data is your email or
billing information. For more information, see Information about you.

“Unidentifiable” data. Anyone can see this data, but no other user can connect the data to you. Generally, your
activity on the website (things you follow, save or view) is Unidentifiable (the exception is well-wishing, see “Public
data” below). For example, when you follow an innovation, the number of followers of the innovation increments by one.
So every user can see that it was followed, but no one knows that you followed it. For more information, see
Information about your activity.

“Public” data. Public data can be seen by any user at any time on the platform. Well-wishes, being public displays
of support are public, meaning other users can see the innovations you well-wished. Generally, any information about
professional users, organisations, innovations and the relationships between them are Public. For more information, see
Information about the health innovation ecosystem.

Information about you.
Information about you is Private.

Account information is Private. Your email and billing information is secret.

Profile information is Private for consumers. If you have a consumer account (the default account not part of an
organization) your name and location are secret.

If you have a professional account, some of your profile information may be Public, see Information about the health
innovation ecosystem

Our use of Private data is restricted to the cases in Private data use and disclosure.

Information about your activity is Unidentifiable. Some activity you make on the site may be public but other
users cannot connect it to you.

Actions on our website generate certain information that is automatically stored in log files, including IP addresses,
which browser you’re using, your Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system and date/time stamp
of activity.

We use this information, which in itself does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site,
to track users’ movements around the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

While your activity and interests on Health Horizon aren’t technically health records, we will keep them secret.

Some functions on Health Horizon require us to connect your professional or medical interests against your email. The
most common examples are when you choose to follow an innovation or save a search.

The connection between your activity and your email is Private. But the fact that the activity occurred may be Public.
For example, If you follow an innovation or save a search, the fact that this was done may be public (the number of
follows will increase publicly by one) but no one will be able to identify you as the person who did this.

We understand that your follows and saved searches are sensitive and private. We are in the process of protecting this
data in a HIPAA compliant way. Once obtained, we will treat your medical interests as securely as a professional
hospital or practice would keep a patient’s medical records.

Information about the health innovation ecosystem is Public. As a professional any content you upload to the
platform is public and can be read by anyone.

Any content you upload onto our platform about your innovation or your organisation is public and can be read by anyone.
You should have no expectation of privacy for information that you post to Health Horizon or when you add documents,
comments, innovations, organisation information or other content to the Health Horizon website.

Other Health Horizon users also share information about you, which includes uploading content or interacting with you.

If you are part of an organization on Health Horizon (whether by creating an organization or by joining an already
existing one) your name, role and location will become public.

External websites have different privacy rules

Our website contains links to other websites. These websites will have a different privacy policy to this one so be
careful when visiting them.

We take security seriously

Health Horizon accounts require an email address and password to log in. You must keep your username and password
secure, and never disclose it to a third party. Account passwords are encrypted, which means we can’t see them.

Nobody’s safe from hackers. If a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into our system that materially
affects you or people on your Distribution Lists, then Health Horizon will notify you as soon as possible and later
report the action we took in response.

You may correct, update, or deactivate your personally identifiable information by contacting us by e-mail at If you chose to do this, you will continue to
receive communications concerning your account and products and services you requested, and in response to any requests
for information by you.
