Information We Collect
Persivia’s mission is to help you manage your health information, and we do that by collecting certain information (including personal information) about you. “Personal Information” means information that alone or in combination with other information may be used to readily identify, contact, or locate a specific person. It can include name, address, email address, phone number, medical records or certain other health data, insurance information, or financial information. Personal Information does not include information that has been anonymized so that it does not allow a third party to easily identify a specific individual.
