Privacy and Data Security Policy.
FormFire LLC has developed this Privacy and Data Security Policy to detail its practices, protocols, and expectations with regard to data associated with User Accounts, Employer Data, and Employee Data.
- Types of Data. In the course of providing the Service, FormFire may receive or collect the following data:
- Personally identifiable information (PII) which can be used alone or with other information to personally identify You, employees, or other individuals, including Employee Data
- Information that is not personally identifiable information, such as ZIP Code and other account information.
- Technical information such as software information and metadata, may be collected through the use of data collection technology, including third-party vendors and the use of “cookies.” A cookie is a string of data that identifies the User’s computer, and cookies provide data regarding the User’s usage of the Services. FormFire LLC uses such information to facilitate provision of the Services and to compile statistical information about use of our Service.
- Usage. FormFire will use Employee Data, Employer Data, and Your User Account data in the course of providing the core function of the Service, which is to receive, compile, and transmit Employee Data for the purpose of acquiring quotes for group health insurance and other insurance-related services. FormFire may also use aggregated data from the Services in the course of monitoring, improving, and updating the Services, and in the course of developing, marketing, or promoting the Service or other FormFire products. Aggregated data does not contain any PII and will not be used to identify you or market to you personally.
- Technical & Physical Security. FormFire LLC is certified as compliant with the HITRUST Common Security Framework, an overarching security framework that incorporates and leverages the existing security requirements placed upon healthcare organizations, including federal (e.g., HIPAA and HITECH), state, third party (e.g., PCI and CobiT), and other government agencies (e.g., NIST, FTC, and CMS). The HITRUST CSF is already being widely adopted by leading healthcare payers, providers, and state exchanges as their security framework. Unfortunately, even with these high standards, FormFire LLC cannot guarantee the security of PII. By using the Service, User acknowledges and agrees that FormFire LLC make no such guarantee.
- Retention & Deletion. FormFire LLC retains User Account data and Employee Data in the normal course of operations. FormFire LLC will Erase (as defined below) a User’s Account Information upon written request by the User, and will Erase any Employee Data upon written request from the Employee. FormFire LLC reserves the right to delete User Account Information after a period of 2 years of User Account inactivity. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Users may at any time instruct FormFire LLC to retain and not to Erase particular data. User may request FormFire LLC certify Erasure in writing to User, by providing notice to FormFire LLC no later than 180 days after the termination of this Agreement. “Erase” and “Erasure” refer to the destruction of data so that no copy of the data remains or can be accessed or restored in any way. Erasure requests will not apply to any Aggregate Data.User acknowledges and agrees that FormFire LLC may use non-identifiable anonymous data that is taken from User Data and combine it with other anonymous data to create what is referred to as “Aggregate Data,” which FormFire LLC shall own and may disclose to third parties. Aggregate Data is information or analytics data that may indicate business trends, usage patterns and/or demographics of Users as a group, but in no case shall Aggregate Data identify particular Users or subscribers. Aggregate Data will be used to determine such things as efficiency of the Services, User demographics, and usage patterns for our services. FormFire LLC may use Aggregate Data to analyze, modify, and improve the Services; and to develop, market, and promote other programs, products and services.
- Updates & Amendments. FormFire LLC may change this Privacy and Data Security Policy at any time by posting a new version on this page or on a successor page. The new version will become effective on the date it is posted, which will be listed at the top of the page as the new Effective Date.
