Introduction and Scope
Remote Medicine Inc., doing business as Remote Medical International, and our subsidiaries Remote Medical International UK Ltd.; Remote Medical Canada Ltd; Remote Medical International Kenya Limited; Remote Medical International Tanzania Limited; Remote Medical International Malaysia Limited; Remote Medical International Mali; Remote Medical International Uganda Limited; Ship Security International Limited; SSI Energy Ltd; and Investment License Remote Medicine Inc., (collectively, “RMI”, “we”, “us”, “our”) take the protection of personally identifiable information (“Personal Data”) very seriously. This Privacy Notice (the “Notice”) addresses data subjects whose Personal Data we may receive through our applications and information systems, as well as in the course of providing staffing and support services (collectively, the “Services”).
Within the scope of this Notice, RMI acts as a data controller for the Personal Data we process.
Basis of Processing
We may process your Personal Data on the basis of:
- your explicit consent;
- the need to perform a contract with you;
- our legitimate interests or those of a third party, such as our interest in ensuring the quality, effectiveness, and tracking the success of our Services;
- the need to comply with the law; or
- any other ground, as required or permitted by law.
Where we process your or your child’s Personal Data based on your consent, you may withdraw it at any time. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of our processing before you withdrew your consent. It will also not affect processing performed on other lawful grounds. In some cases, we may not be able to continue delivering Services if you withdraw consent for processing your Personal Data.
How We Receive Personal Data
We may receive your Personal Data when:
- you provide it directly to us as part of using or participating in our Services;
- we receive it from third-party validation and accreditation services;
- our clients (including their employees, contractors, and other representatives of the company) provide it to us;
- we receive it from other companies within our corporate group;
- our service providers provide it to us; or
- we receive it from health providers.
Categories of Personal Data
We may process the following types of Personal Data:
- biographical information, such as first and last name and date of birth;
- contact information, such as email address, phone number, and postal addresses;
- account information for various communication services, such as username;
- demographic information, such as gender, race, and ethnicity;
- health information, such as overall fitness to perform necessary tasks, medical history, and health screening results; and
- professional information, such as current position and training.
Purposes of Processing
We may process your Personal Data for the purposes of:
- enabling the use of and participation in the Services;
- tracking the needs of our clients;
- tracking field injuries and medical information for fitness and health purposes for our clients;
- sales lead management;
- responding to your requests or questions; and
- sending you email marketing communications about our business that we think may interest you.
When the purposes of processing are satisfied, we will generally retain applicable Personal Data for a period of seven years, though some Personal Data may be retained indefinitely for regulatory purposes or as required by applicable law.
Sharing Personal Data with Third Parties
We share Personal Data with our subsidiaries and affiliates, as well as with our service providers, who process Personal Data on our behalf, and who agree to use the Personal Data only to assist us in providing our Services or as required by law. Our service providers may provide:
- application hosting services;
- cloud storage services;
- email software;
- electronic health records;
- communication services; and
- CRM software.
We also share Personal Data with subcontractors providing similar services when necessary to meet our clients’ needs. These subcontractors typically act as data controllers in their own right. In all cases, RMI will require that our subcontractors agree to only process Personal Data received from RMI for limited and specific purposes and maintain data protection standards substantially similar to those which RMI itself is subject.
Some of these third parties may be located in other countries, some of which may have different standards for privacy and data security. However, before transferring your Personal Data to these third parties, we will either ask for your explicit consent or require the third party to maintain at least the same level of privacy and security for your Personal Data that we do. We remain liable for the protection of your Personal Data within the scope of our self-certification to the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks (“Privacy Shield”) that we transfer to third parties, except to the extent that we are not responsible for the event that leads to any unauthorized or improper processing.
Other Disclosure of Your Personal Data
We may disclose your Personal Data to the extent required by law, or if we have a good-faith belief that we need to disclose it in order to comply with official investigations or legal proceedings (whether initiated by governmental/law enforcement officials, or private parties). We may also disclose your Personal Data if we sell or transfer all or some of our company’s business interests, assets, or both, or in connection with a corporate restructuring. Finally, we may disclose your Personal Data to our subsidiaries or affiliates, but only if necessary for business purposes, as described in the section above.
We reserve the right to use, transfer, sell, and share aggregated, anonymous data for any legal business purpose. Such data does not include any Personal Data. The purposes may include analyzing usage trends or seeking compatible advertisers, sponsors, and customers.
If we have to disclose your Personal Data to governmental/law enforcement officials, we may not be able to ensure that those officials will maintain the privacy and security of your Personal Data.
