How we share information

**We Do Not Sell Your Information**

Health Hero users create and share sensitive and proprietary data on our platform. Since we appreciate our users’ need for privacy, we adhere to a straightforward business model based on the offer of both paid subscriptions and free plans. This means that, no matter what Health Hero plan you choose, we will never sell information about you, your profile, your projects, nor your data and metadata, to advertising companies or other third parties.

Other Health Hero Users

Health Hero is a collaborative platform that’s designed to let you share and disseminate your work. This means you are free to invite your peers to view, comment, download, or edit collaboratively in real time, depending on the settings that you select. You can also choose to make your work publically available. In addition, you may also grant your team members project access rights that are equivalent to yours, including the ability to transfer your project ownership to a different account. Some of these collaborative features display your publicly accessible profile information to the other users you’ve invited to collaborate.

Community and Forums

Health Hero offers publicly accessible blogs and community forums. Any comments you contribute to these platforms may be read, collected or used by any member of the public who chooses to access them. Your information may remain posted on these sites, even if your account is deleted at your request.

Testimonials and Case Studies

We might contact you with a request to provide information that would appear, as a testimonial or case study, on our blog and website. In this case, we would seek explicit, written consent to use this information.

Social Media Links and Third-Party Widgets

Some Health Hero services include social media links and widgets. In order to function properly, these features may set a cookie that records the Health Hero page from which you engaged them, as well as your IP address. These features may also link to other websites or services whose privacy policies differ from ours. As a result, any information you provide to them will be governed by their policies and not this one.

Third-Party App Integrations

Health Hero users are free to allow third-party apps and integrations to connect to their Health Hero account. Once enabled, Health Hero may share information with those services. Health Hero does not control the way in which these services collect, share, or use information. Because of this, Health Hero users should review the privacy policies of all third-party services before connecting to, or use their applications.

Legal Compliance and Fraud Prevention

In exceptional circumstances, we may disclose information about you to a third party if we receive a request and believe that the disclosure is in accordance with or required by any applicable law, rule or regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request. We may also do so to enforce our Terms of Service, investigate potential violations, prevent and detect fraud, track and solve security or technical issues, and protect against any harm to the rights, property or safety of Health Hero, its users, or the public as required or permitted by law.

Changes in Business

If Health Hero engages in a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, dissolution, sale of company assets, financing, public offering of securities, or due diligence and other steps in contemplation and negotiation of such activities, we may share or transfer information that we collect under this privacy policy, subject to standard confidentiality agreements.
