We comply with all applicable laws with respect to your health or medical-related information. Malla is not a “covered entity” under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, Public Law 104-191, and its associated laws and implementing regulations (collectively, “HIPAA”). If Malla functions as a “business associate,” Malla treats your protected health information in accordance with HIPAA and the applicable covered entity’s notice of privacy practices.
Any health records created as a result of your use of the Services will be securely maintained by Malla.
We may use de-identified information created by us without restriction. When we use the term “de-identified information,” we mean information that is neither used nor intended to be used to personally identify an individual.

To contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our business and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential.
As required by law or legal process, which can include providing information as required by a court order or to respond to any government or regulatory request or investigation.

Disclosure to third parties.

Modification of information.
Members will be able to update some of their information through the Site. Requests to modify any information may also be submitted to email@example.com.
Limitations on deletion of information.
We employ reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial security methods to help protect against unauthorized access to personal information, such as encryption, to protect information on the Malla platform (e.g. health records). But please be aware that no data transmission over the Internet or data storage facility can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. Text messages and emails are not always secure because they travel over unencrypted networks that we do not control. As a result, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us.
By using the Services and providing us your cell phone number and email address, you permit us to communicate with you by SMS text message and email.
