TAPE-IT collects and uses various types of information to deliver the best possible experience to our users and ensure the secure and efficient operation of our services. We strictly adhere to HIPAA regulations and handle all information with the utmost care and discretion. The following sections detail the types of information we collect and the purposes for which they are used.
Personal information refers to any data that can be used to identify an individual. This includes, but is not limited to, name, email address, phone number, mailing address, and professional credentials. We collect this information when users register for an account, update their profile, or participate in certain platform activities.

All other data related to our users, including personal and non-personal information, is securely protected within our platform, ensuring confidentiality and compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
Non-personal information is data that cannot be used to identify a specific individual. This type of information includes technical and usage data, such as browser type, device type, operating system, IP address, and other similar data. We use this information to analyze and optimize the performance of our platform and to identify trends and usage patterns that can help us improve the overall user experience.
At AIHCON, we understand the critical importance of data security and privacy for our users on the TAPE-IT platform. Our commitment to protecting sensitive information is evident in our adherence to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the implementation of robust security measures and infrastructure. The following sections provide a comprehensive overview of our data security approach and our unwavering dedication to HIPAA compliance.
To ensure the highest level of data protection, we utilize advanced security measures and encryption techniques.

AIHCON's TAPE-IT platform is committed to safeguarding the privacy of all users, including children, and ensuring compliance with HIPAA regulations and other applicable laws. Our policies are designed to protect the privacy of children and provide a secure environment for the collection and storage of their personal information. The following sections outline our approach to children's privacy, age restrictions, and the role of parental consent and control in our platform.
The TAPE-IT platform is intended for use by healthcare providers and other authorized users who are at least 18 years of age or older.

In the event that we become aware of any personal information collected from a child under the age of 18, we will take appropriate steps to delete such information as quickly as possible and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
As our platform is not designed for users under the age of 18, we require that any personal information related to a child be provided by their parent or legal guardian. We encourage parents and guardians to be actively involved in their children's online activities and to monitor their use of our platform. In cases where personal information is collected for children under the age of 18, we seek the consent of their parents or legal guardians and provide them with the ability to control and manage their child's data. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that their child has provided personal information to our platform without their consent, they should contact us immediately so that we can take appropriate action to delete the information and ensure the child's privacy is protected.
We understand the importance of maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of user data. However, in certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose personal information to comply with legal obligations, respond to government requests, or facilitate interactions with insurance companies and law firms. In all such instances, we adhere to HIPAA regulations and other applicable laws to ensure that user privacy remains protected. The following sections detail our policies and practices related to data sharing and disclosures under specific circumstances.
We may be required to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests from government authorities, such as subpoenas, court orders, or other legal processes.

We are committed to ensuring that all data sharing with insurance companies is carried out securely and in a manner that respects user privacy.
There may be instances where we need to share personal information with law firms to comply with legal obligations or to protect our rights and interests.

We will also require the law firms to maintain the confidentiality of the information shared and to use it solely for the purposes for which it was provided. Our commitment to user privacy remains paramount, even when sharing information with law firms under these specific circumstances.
We are dedicated to ensuring the security and privacy of user data.
