THINKMD Privacy Policy

Effective Date: April 26, 2020


Welcome to the website (“Site”) of THINKMD, Inc. (“THINKMD”, “we,” “us,” or “our”). THINKMD’s mission is to eliminate preventable deaths by combining next-generation digital clinical intelligence logic with mobile technology in order to dramatically increase global primary healthcare capacity and improve access by decentralizing the healthcare delivery paradigm.

THINKMD offers clinical decision support software tools for a wide range of users, from healthcare workers using our software tools with their patients or other individuals on behalf of an entity (a “Healthcare Worker User”) to consumers using our software tools. We refer to such software tools, our mobile applications and other related services as “Software” in this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy applies to our processing of personal information we collect about you when you use and interact with our Software that displays or links to this Privacy Policy, either as an Healthcare Worker User or a consumer, and to the processing of personal information collected from or about visitors to our Site. “You” or “your”, as used in this Privacy Policy, refers to the individual to whom personal information relates.
