Version August 2020

As required by the Privacy Regulations Promulgated Pursuant to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and by the Privacy Regulations stipulated in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Thank you for selecting the Zaurus Add-In for Microsoft Office (the “Add-In”). Zaurus is a provider of secure digital consulting rooms. To protect your privacy better, Zaurus wants you to know how we collect your information, the types of information we collect, how we use and share your information and what choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

This privacy statement details Zaurus’ policy regarding the collection, use, storage and disclosure of and access to personal information. Zaurus is bound by both the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA – USA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR – EU) as amended from time to time. This privacy statement aims to foster and maintain public trust and confidence in the integrity and professionalism of Zaurus by ensuring that Zaurus complies with the privacy principles that protect personal information in our possession.

This statement applies to information you provide us with and any information we collect through your use of our Add-In.

Zaurus considers the protection of privacy very important. Both the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA – USA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR – EU) take care of the protection of your and our personal data. Under these regulations, an organization that works with personal data has certain obligations and the person from whom the data originates from has certain rights. These regulations speak of ‘processing personal data’. This concept encompasses everything that can be done with personal data: from collection to destruction. This privacy statement is set up to inform you about your and our rights and obligations.

When processing your personal data, we comply with the requirements of both HIPAA and the GDPR. This means that we:

  • state our purposes before we process personal data, by means of this privacy statement;
  • limit our collection of personal data to the personal information needed for legitimate purposes;
  • first ask for your (explicit) permission to process your personal data in cases where your consent is required;
  • take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information and we demand the same from parties we work with who process your personal data on our behalf;
  • respect your wishes with regard to the access, correction or removal of your personal data as stored by us.

We collect several types of information from and about users of our Add-In, including:

Certain trusted third parties have been engaged by Zaurus to perform functions and provide services, such as hosting. Zaurus has a signed processor agreement with its service providers that reflect the protective measures described in this privacy statement and checks it regularly to ensure that users’ privacy is maintained.

Under no circumstances (except if we are forced by law) do we share your personal data with any companies or institutions, other than the trusted third parties mentioned in this list.

Zaurus takes precautions to protect personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, altercation and destruction. To protect your privacy, Zaurus and our contracted third parties take appropriate organizational and technical measures including:

  • access to personal data is protected with a username, password and, where necessary, a login token.
  • using secure connections (TLS) that protects all information between you and our websites and apps when submitting personal data and sharing personal messages.
  • using firewalls, intrusion detection systems, intrusion prevention systems and virus scanners to ensure your data is always safe.
