While you are visiting our website or using the System your information might be collected and processed as set forth by this Statement.
Questions, comments, requests and complaints regarding this Statement and the information we hold are welcome and should be addressed to us by using the contact details above. All requests will be dealt with promptly and efficiently.
Under the European General Data Protection Regulation (”GDPR”), we are the Data Controller of our direct Customers’ Personal Data, and certain types of User’s Personal Data.
We are the Processor of any Personal Data processed on behalf of our Customer. Similarly, when we process data on behalf of any of our customers who is deemed as a Covered Entity under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”), we act as a Business Associate.
The Data of which we are deemed as a Controller, consists of profile, and contact details, as well as eyesight information (for our direct Customers), usage, preferences, engagement and analytics data. In addition, we are the Controller of the data which is being collected in our promotional Website. With respect to such data, we assume the responsibilities of Data Controller (to the extent applicable under law), as set forth in this Statement. In such instances, our external suppliers processing such data will assume the role of “Data Processor”.
The Personal Data processed by us as a Data Processor (or Business Associate) on behalf of our Customers and Account owners includes: any Personal Data uploaded by the Customer or its Users to the System (including any medical, eye-condition-related or sensitive data uploaded to the system and processed on behalf of the Customer, as part of such Customer’s business activity), and User’s Data processed on such Customer’s behalf (e.g. System’s usage data, Users credentials, etc.) . In such instances, our Customer shall be deemed the “Data Controller” or “Covered Entity”, and we will act as its “Data Processor” or Business Associate. That means that we process such data in accordance with the Customer’s instructions, subject to our agreements with such Customer (to the extent applicable). The Customer will be responsible for meeting any legal requirements applicable to Data Controllers and Covered Entities (such as establishing a legal basis for processing and responding to Data Subject Rights requests concerning the data they control). Therefore, and with any request relevant for Customers’ Personal Data, you should contact the relevant Customer. It should also be noted that, in these instances, our relevant external suppliers shall act as designated Sub-Processors.
“Personal Data”, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. That might include data which is deemed as “Personal Health Information” or “PHI” under the HIPAA.
We collect Personal Data from you voluntarily when you provide such Personal Data to us, when you register or use the System (whether as a direct customer or as a User acting under an Account Owner), or via our services and websites with which you voluntarily interact. We may also obtain such Personal Data about you as may be provided to us during our legitimate business activities.
You do not have to provide us with your information, but in some cases, if you do not, it may mean that you are unable to use our services. For example, we may be unable to complete a requested “contact form” inquiry, unless you’ll provide us with your contact details. Similarly, we cannot allow you the use of the System unless you’ll use and sign in with your access information such as username and password and provide the system with relevant eyesight-related data.
When you use our Website or System and choose voluntarily to provide us with your information, we might also collect and process the following information:

In general, and as detailed above, we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your Personal Data. Yet, in any case in which you have provided your consent to our processing of your information, you can withdraw this consent at any time by contacting us through the contact details provided above.
It should be noted that if you are a User acting in our System on behalf of a Customer or Account Owner, the Lawful Basis for the main use of the system is under the responsibility of the Account Owner, which is the Data Controller. Yet, and as explained above, some data regarding your use of the System may be processed by us as the operator and owner of the System.
In some circumstances we may anonymize the Personal Data which is being collected and managed through the use of our Website and System, so that it can no longer be associated with any identified person. Such anonymized or aggregated data, might be used by us as part of our Services, including for research or statistical purposes, without further notice to you.
We may disclose your Personal Data to third parties in a variety of circumstances in the ordinary course of operating our business, such as:
In any such communication we will take steps to make sure such transfer is carefully managed to protect your privacy rights:
any requests for information we receive from law enforcement or regulators will be carefully validated before the disclosure of any Personal Data.
If you are a User of our System, some of the data collected during your use in the system is the relevant Customer who purchased the System license from us. In those cases, as explained above, the Customer is the Data Controller, and will have full access to its information, including the data which is being provided by you as a User of the system and other data collected automatically as part of such use (e.g. record of your sessions and login data to the System).
Any transfer of data which originates in the European Union (“EU”) to a country outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), shall be made in compliance with the provisions of chapter 5 of the GDPR. Such transfer can be made to countries which are recognized as providing an adequate level of legal protection or where we can be satisfied that alternative arrangements are in place to protect your privacy rights, e.g. signing a Standard Contractual Clauses which were published and authorized by the relevant EU authorities.

We do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements. When you leave our website, we encourage you to read the privacy notice of every website you visit.
We are committed to protecting the security of your Personal Data. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Data from unauthorized access and use. However, the collection, transmission and storage of information can never be guaranteed to be completely secure. Yet, we take steps to ensure that appropriate security safeguards are in place to protect your information, and we will continue to revise our policies and implement additional security features.
We will only store your Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. As part of that we might store and keep record of data which might be required for us for our legal protection. We have defined data retention periods for any data item in our systems, ensuring minimization of retention periods.
The retention periods of the data processed in the System on behalf of our Customers, are under the sole discretion of any such Customer, in accordance with its legal duties as Data Controller. Yet it should be noted that, in some cases, the data collected in the System is of medical nature or medical related. Such data might be subject to a specific regulation including which usually stipulates longer retention periods.
As explained before, in some circumstances we may anonymize your Personal Data, in which case we may save and use this anonymized information indefinitely.
Under EU law, EU residents and individuals, have certain rights to apply to us to provide information or make amendments to how we process data relating them. Similar rules apply under the HIPAA or under Israeli Privacy Protection Regulation. Those rights might include:
We may not always be able to do what you have asked. In addition, not all of those rights apply in every jurisdiction. For example, if it would impact the duty of confidentiality we owe to others, or if we are otherwise legally entitled to deal with the request in a different way. In addition, the Portability Right doesn’t apply under the HIPAA or under the Israeli Privacy Protection laws. So not always we will be able or obliged to provide you with those rights. However, we encourage you to contact us with any such request, and we will be happy to assist you.
We do not sell your personal information for the intents and purposes of the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). We can use your personal data for our purposes, but only as described above or after the anonymization of such data, including aggregate data which can no longer associated to you.
