Branch Collective Wellness Privacy Policies
Information You Provide to Us:
We collect information about you directly from you and automatically through your use of our Site. Branch Collective Wellness has implemented technical and organizational measures with respect to processing Personal Information from European Union individuals for purposes of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). Upon request, we will provide you with information as to whether and what Personal Information we store in relation to you. Should your Personal Information be incorrect, you may request to have it rectified. You may also revoke your consent to use your Personal Information in the future, in whole or in part, or request deletion of your Personal Information.
In addition, we may also collect non-personally identifiable information, such as IP addresses (which identify your device), pages viewed, computer type, screen resolution, operating system version, Internet browser type and version, information collected through cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, and other technologies, and other data (“Non-Personal Information”). Because Non-Personal Information does not personally identify you, we may collect, use and disclose Non-Personal Information for any purpose. Non-Personal Information will be retained only for so long as to fulfill a legitimate business need.
We may aggregate Personal Information so that the aggregated information does not personally identify you or anyone else, such as by using Personal Information to calculate the percentage of our customers who live in a particular area (“Aggregate Information”). In some instances, we may combine Non-Personal Information with Personal Information (such as combining your name with your geographical location). If we combine any Non-Personal Information with Personal Information, the combined information will be treated by us as Personal Information as long as it is combined, and may aggregate any information collected in a manner which does not identify any individual.
This section describes how we, through Practice Better, use and protect protected health information (“PHI”) governed by the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). We understand that your PHI is private and confidential and will only be shared in the furtherance of us carrying out the Services. Your PHI includes any individually identifiable information that we obtain from you or others that relates to demographic data about you, past, present or diagnosed mental or physical conditions, or health care treatment.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COOKIES AND HOW DO WE USE THEM?
- Essential: These are cookies which are essential for the running of our Site. Without these cookies, parts of our Site would not function. These cookies do not track where you have been on the internet and do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing purposes.
Examples of how we may use essential Cookies include:
- Setting unique identifiers for each unique visitor, so that user numbers can be analyzed.
- Functional: These cookies are used to remember your preferences and login information on our Site and to provide enhanced, more personal features. The information collected by these cookies is usually anonymized, so we cannot identify you personally. Functional cookies do not track your internet usage or gather information which could be used for selling advertising.
Examples of how we may use functional Cookies include:
- Gathering data about visits to our Site, including numbers of visitors and visits, length of time spent on the Site, or where visitors have come from.
- Eliminating the need for returning users to re-enter their login details.
- Third Party Cookies: You may notice on some pages of our Site that cookies have been set that are not related to us. When you visit a page with content embedded from these third-party service providers may set their own cookies on your mobile device. We do not control the use of these third-party cookies and cannot access them due to the way that cookies work, as cookies can only be accessed by the party who originally set them. Please check the third-party websites or mobile applications for more information about these cookies.
- Disabling Cookies: Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. If you choose to refuse, disable, or delete cookies, some of the functionality of our Site may no longer be available to you. Without this information, we are not able to provide you with all the requested services, and any differences in services are related to your information.
- Some browsers transmit “do-not-track” signals to websites. Because of differences in how browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not take action in response to these signals.
Clear GIFs, pixel tags and other technologies: Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with our Site and Services to, among other things, track the activities of Site visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about Site usage. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML emails to our customers, to help us track email response rates, identify when our emails are viewed, and track whether our emails are forwarded.
Certain features on our Site may give you an opportunity to interact with us and others. When you use these features you should be aware that any information you submit, including your name, location and e-mail address as part of a testimonial, may be publicly available to others. We are not responsible for any information you choose to submit through these interactive features and we strongly discourage you from disclosing any sensitive Personal Information (such as health or credit card information) through these features. If you use these features, your Personal Information may remain on the Site even after you cease use of the Site.
Our Site may contain links to other websites not maintained by Branch Collective Wellness. Other websites may also reference or link to our Site. The inclusion of a link on the website does not imply endorsement of the linked site by us. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of websites operated by third parties that are linked to or integrated with our Site, or for the privacy practices of third-party Internet advertising companies. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Site, or surf the Internet, and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that you visit.
Although we have implemented commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security.

California Privacy Rights:
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provides consumers who are residents of the State of California with specific rights related to their Personal Information, subject to certain exceptions. It also requires us to disclose the information we collect, the purposes for which we collect it, and what we share and disclose.
California Civil Code § 1798.83, also known as the “Shine the Light” law, provides California residents with the right to request, once per year, without charge, information from website operators and owners regarding the Personal Information that they collect online and offline, if any, and the third parties, including affiliates, with which they have shared this information during the preceding calendar year, for the direct marketing purposes of the third party. If such information is collected and shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, the website operator or owner is required, upon request, to provide the list of categories of Personal Information they collect, if any, and the names and addresses of all third parties with which it has shared such information for direct marketing purposes.
A website operator or owner may meet its obligations, and be exempt from such disclosures, under the Shine the Light law, if it provides California residents the right to opt-out of, and thereby prohibit, the website operator or owner from sharing such Personal Information with third parties including its affiliates, for the direct marketing purposes of the third party.
California residents may have further rights related to the handling of their Personal Information under the California Consumer Privacy Act. While Branch Collective Wellness does not “sell” your Personal Information in the traditional sense, it may share your information with third parties. California residents may have certain rights related to this information, including the right to ask that we “Do Not Sell Your Personal Information,” the right to ask that we delete your Personal Information, or the right to request access to the categories or specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you. California residents also have the right to not be treated differently by Branch Collective Wellness in response to your decision to exercise any of these rights.
To learn more about these rights, to opt-out of our sharing of your Personal Information, and to exercise other rights that apply, please contact Branch Collective Wellness by emailing us at Branchcollectivewellness@gmail.com. As part of your request, we may ask for certain information including your name and account information, or the manner in which you have previously interacted with Branch Collective Wellness. We will use this information only to contact you about your request and to verify your request. You may also designate an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf.
Information for Nevada Consumers:
Nevada law requires website operators to provide a way for Nevada consumers to opt out of the sale of certain information that the website operator may collect about them. This information is limited to direct identifiers, such as your name, postal address, and email address. When Nevada consumers opt out of the sale of their information, website operators must ensure that the information is not sold to another business that will further license or sell the information to others.
If you are a Nevada resident and you would like to opt out of any possible sale of this information, please email us at Branchcollectivewellness@gmail.com. For all requests, you must put the statement “Your Nevada Privacy Rights” in the subject field of your request. You must also include your full name, street address, city, state, and zip code. We will not accept requests via telephone, postal mail, or facsimile, and we are not responsible for notices that are not labeled or sent properly, or that do not have complete information
