Privacy Statement

This Privacy Statement informs users of the www.connectRN.com website and the ConnectRN mobile application about how ConnectRN, Inc., (“ConnectRN” or “we”) gathers and uses personal information submitted to, and information aggregated by ConnectRN via the connectRN.com website or via the ConnectRN web or mobile application (collectively, the “ConnectRN Platform”).

Collection of personal information

If you register to use the ConnectRN Platform, you will be required to provide your email and select a password.  In addition you may be required to input certain information about yourself, such as personal information about you, your nursing credentials, nursing competencies and related licenses.  You may also provide information regarding your currently scheduled nursing shifts as well as preferences for timings of shifts (collectively “Personal Nurse Data”).

In addition to the above personal information, we collect standard information about ConnectRN Platform users such as IP addresses, browser type, operating system, pages visited on our site, and the dates and times of the visits.  This site usage data is used to administer the site and provide general statistics regarding the use of the ConnectRN Platform. Site visitation data is never linked to your personal information, and we do not use it to identify you individually.

Sharing information with Nurse Administrators

The ConnectRN platform allows you to enable sharing of certain of your Personal Nurse Data with certain other users designated as nurse administrators (the “Nurse Administrators”) for them to view such information in connection with scheduling nursing shifts. If you enable the sharing of Personal Nurse Data with these selected Nurse Administrators, the ConnectRN Platform will provide them with certain access to your Personal Nurse Data. In addition, if you accept an invitation from a Nurse Administrator, you are enabling the sharing of your Personal Nurse Data with such Nurse Administrator.  Please bear in mind that ConnectRN cannot completely control what Nurse Administrators do with your Personal Nurse Data, so you should only share with Nurse Administrators you have verified.

Use of personal information

We will treat your Personal Nurse Data as confidential, and we will not share your personal information or Personal Nurse Data with third parties without your permission, except in the limited circumstances described below.

We will use the personal information you give us to fulfill the provision of the services and products we provide through the ConnectRN Platform.  In some circumstances we may use third party contractors to perform these services on our behalf.  In such circumstances, we will only provide the contractor with the information needed to perform the services, and all contractors will be required to agree to confidentiality obligations with respect to your personal, non-public information.

If you do not opt-out of communications from ConnectRN, we may send you marketing and informational notices including promotions of our products and services.  You can opt-out of communications from ConnectRN at any time (see control of personal information below).

We may disclose your personal information when we reasonably believe that it is required by a law or legal process and to protect and defend the rights and interests of ConnectRN, its affiliates, suppliers, or users.  In the event ConnectRN goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users’ personal information and Personal Nurse Data will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.

We may disclose to third parties, including advertisers and potential business partners, aggregated statistics that we develop from Personal Nurse Data.  For example, we may disclose the total number of shifts planned using the ConnectRN Platform, or generalized information about the efficient use and implementation of the ConnectRN Platform based on aggregated statistics drawn from Personal Nurse Data.  This statistical information will not identify any individual.

Control of personal information

You can confirm, change, or update personal information you have provided to us by editing your profile settings or by contacting us directly at info@connectrn.com.

If you want to opt-out of communications from ConnectRN, you can do so by emailing your request to info@connectRN.com. If you change your mind, you can opt-in again by changing your profile settings or by emailing this same address.  When you opt-out of promotional communications from us, you may still receive service messages (such as an order confirmation) and legally mandated notices.

Security of the information we collect

We use a range of technologies and procedures to protect your personal information including industry-standard firewalls and security software designed to protect the security and integrity of your Personal Nurse Data.

Protection of children’s privacy

ConnectRN does not knowingly collect any personal information from children.  If you are under 18, you are not permitted to use the ConnectRN Platform.

Use of cookies and tracking technology

When using the ConnectRN Platform, a cookie or similar mechanism may be saved on your computer (if your computer or mobile device accepts cookies), and if you return to the site the cookie may be read.  We use cookies and similar mechanisms to help us collect the ConnectRN Platform usage data described above and in some cases to deliver specialized content.  Cookies are not linked to your personal information.

We may also use web beacons, clear gif technology, or action tags as mechanisms to collect aggregate site visitation data by tracking how users navigate to and through the ConnectRN Platform.  We may also use this technology to track the delivery of HTML email messages.  Data collected through this mechanism is not linked to personal information.

In addition, we and our partners may use analytics technology to track anonymous traffic data about use of the ConnectRN Platform.  This data does not include your Personal Nurse Data.
