Snow receives personal and health-related information from patient ambassadors and individuals who nominate themselves to be patient ambassadors. Snow also receives personal and health-related information from individuals who call in to informational or educational call centers operated by Snow on behalf of a client. All personal information collected by Snow is provided voluntarily by the individual. Individuals may provide personal information through the submission of surveys and/or questionnaires distributed by Snow through a variety of media and communication channels. Individuals also may provide personal information when they contact a call center and are interviewed by Snow personnel, or individuals acting on behalf of Snow. The types of personal information collected by Snow varies, depending upon the reason an individual contacts Snow, but may include name, contact information (both physical and electronic), date of birth, social security number, family information, photographic image, and personal health information. All personal information collected by Snow is collectively referred to as “Collected Data”.

Collected Data is only used in connection with the individual’s relationship with Snow. For patient ambassadors, Collected Data is used by Snow for the effective management of the patient ambassador relationship, including business communications, training, and payment of honoraria. For individuals who voluntarily submit Collected Data to Snow to be considered for participation in a patient ambassador or other educational engagement, the Collected Data is used to determine potential opportunities for those who have requested consideration for such opportunities. In all other instances, Collected Data is used to enable Snow to respond to the request or inquiry of a caller.

Snow does not transfer, sell, rent, or lease any Collected Data to third-parties unless required by law or your prior permission is obtained. If Collected Data is obtained on behalf of a client, we will advise you at the time we collect the information from you and we will obtain your consent before we transfer any Collected Data to the client. For information collected online, Snow neither utilizes cookies nor employs any behavioral tracking devices.

We may store information that is not personally-identifiable, such as your area code, your zip code, or a medical diagnosis, separate and apart from any personally-identifiable information or other Collected Data for our own internal purposes, such as tracking and data analysis.

Individuals may have reasonable access to their Collected Data to correct, amend or delete information that is inaccurate. Snow may require an individual to provide acceptable proof of identity prior to granting reasonable access.
