This Privacy Policy covers how Pear Therapeutics, collects, receives, uses, retains, and discloses
Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) of Clinicians (also “you”, “your” or “user”) through the Site.
PII includes information about you that is personally identifying such as your name, email address, and phone number and which is not otherwise publicly available. Only the legal definition of PII that applies to your location will apply to you under this Privacy Policy.

Through their provision of health care services to Patients, Clinicians and Clinical Partners will have access to and be responsible for Patient PII and Patient Protected Health Information as defined by Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rules or other applicable laws. Clinicians and Clinical Partners are responsible for the privacy and security of such information and for obtaining consent from Patients for the use and disclosure of such information to, from and through the App and the Service.

Protection of Your Information

Pear Therapeutics uses secure server software (SSL), firewalls, and end-to-end encryption to protect your PII from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We will retain PII for as long as necessary to provide our services, but no later than 6 years following termination of Services. We will retain and use PII as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

These third parties are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality of your PII consistent with the terms of this Privacy Policy and to comply with the applicable data protection laws.

We will disclose your information in response to valid legal process, for example, in response to a court order, a subpoena or other legal request for information, and/or to comply with applicable legal and regulatory reporting requirements. We also may disclose your information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request or other request for information from the U.S. or other government entities, or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our products and/or services and with applicable laws, or as otherwise required or permitted by law or consistent with legal requirements. In addition, we may, upon notice to you and/or your Clinical Partner, transfer your information to an entity or individual that acquires, buys, or merges with Pear Therapeutics, or our other business units.
