User privacy is a top concern for HealthLayer. To ensure our customers retain the highest privacy possible, we implement encryption to protect all user data. This page will outline the privacy steps we take to protect data on the platform.
Data in transit from a user’s device to the company servers are protected using encryption. Doing this ensures internet service providers are unable to understand the data as it flows through their services. Data that is sent from one HealthLayer server to another, is also encrypted to prevent any data from being visible to third parties.
Any health data stored on a company server or a service provider’s server, is encrypted to ensure that only the owner of the data can access it. The user’s password is used as a key to encrypt and decrypt the data. It is critical that users choose a secure password. A suggested minimum password length of 12 characters be used. Capital letters and special characters ensures a password is less likely to be guessed using a dictionary.
When users opt-in to data sharing, the data is anonymized, making it impossible to link to a specific account or person. Collected data is used to improve the software and provide more accurate results to the greater community.
The platform does not share any health data with third parties. The website may offer an option to print results so a user can share the results with their healthcare providers.
The website includes third party tracking that helps us monitor which services are popular and how the website is used. The platform receives aggregate data including demographics and interests provided by Google. We use this information to better understand how to improve the services offered. No personal information is available through their Analytics platform.
A data breach will be reported directly to users where we have contact information available.
