Safeguarding Your Health Data: Our Commitment at Human

We take your privacy and security seriously, and we’re eager to share with you how important protecting your personal and health data is to us here at Human. In this blog post, we'll delve into the measures we have implemented to ensure your data remains safe and confidential when you use the Human platform.

Your Trust is Our Top Priority

At Human, we firmly believe that your trust is our most valuable asset. We understand that your health data contains sensitive  information that is extremely private and personal to you. This is why we spare no effort to maintain the highest standards of data privacy and security. Whether you're a patient, a healthcare professional, a carer,  or anyone interacting with our platform, we want you to feel confident and comfortable entrusting us with your health-related information.

Rigorous Data Protection Protocols

Our dedication to safeguarding your health data is reflected in the rigorous protocols we have put in place. From the moment your data enters our systems, it is encrypted using best known practices in our industry. Access to this data is strictly restricted on a need-to-know basis, ensuring that only authorized personnel can view and handle it.

Compliance with Privacy Laws

Maintaining your privacy is not just a priority for us; it is a legal obligation that we take seriously. We are fully compliant with applicable data protection laws and regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and we are actively working towards compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Compliance with these laws ensures that your health data is treated with the utmost care, integrity, and transparency.

Constant Security Assessments

Ensuring the security of your health data is an ongoing process. To remain at the forefront of data protection, we regularly conduct security assessments and audits. This proactive approach allows us to identify potential vulnerabilities and promptly address them before they can pose any risks to your privacy.

Transparent Privacy Policy

We believe that transparency is key to fostering trust. That's why we have a clear and comprehensive privacy policy that outlines how we collect, store, use, and protect your health data. We encourage you to read our policy carefully so you can have a complete understanding of how your information is handled by Human within our platform.

Empowering You with Control

We understand that your health data is ultimately yours. That's why we empower you with the ability to control your information. You can update your preferences, manage consents, and even request the deletion of your data if you wish. We respect your choices and will always honor your decisions regarding your personal information.

Data Anonymization for Research

As part of our commitment to advancing medical research, we may use aggregated and anonymized data for scientific purposes. When we use this data, it is always stripped of any identifying information to protect your privacy completely. Participating in research is entirely voluntary, and your consent will always be sought if your data is to be used in this manner.

Conclusion

At Human, safeguarding your health data is not just a box we check; it is a fundamental part of our identity and mission. We value your trust and strive to earn it every day by upholding the highest standards of data privacy and security. With our dedication to transparency, compliance, and constant improvement, you can be assured that your health data is in safe hands.
