Information We Collect When You Use Our Services


Location Information

Some of the features of our Services may enable us to access your location in order to tailor your experience with our Services based on your location (“Location-based Services”). In order to use certain Location-based Services, you may be asked to enable certain features of your mobile phone, which enable us to identify your location through a variety of means, including GPS location, IP address, or cellular, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth signals, as available. If you choose to disable any Location-based Services on your device, you may not be able to utilize certain features of the Service.


Information from Local Storage and Similar Technologies

We use local storage and may use other tracking technologies on our Services. Local storage is a file created by a website on your device used to retain data on your device across visits to the same website. Local storage helps us track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience with our Services.

For information about how to opt-out of or manage certain use of local storage and other technologies, please see the Your Choices section below.


Information from Clinics

In providing our Services to you, we help manage a shared calendar of the appointments you scheduled with the clinic. In doing so, we’ll obtain information about the dates, times, and nature of your appointments. If you authorize the clinics to do so, they will share with us your treatment schedule, which will include information about your appointments and medications. To the extent you are receiving services from a clinic or other entity subject to the Health Insurance Privacy and Accountability Act of 1996, as amended, and its implementing regulations (collectively, “HIPAA Covered Provider”) you must execute an authorization with the HIPAA Covered Provider on a form they provide before requesting that it provide any information to Future Family.
