Consumer Health Data Privacy Policy

This notice supplements the US Coloplast Privacy Notice and applies to personal data defined as “consumer health data” subject to the Washington State My Health My Data Act (MHMDA) and other applicable state laws as they may come into effect.

Consumer Health Data We Collect

As described in the section of the Privacy Policy, the data we collect depends on the context of your interactions with Coloplast and the choices you make (including your privacy settings), the products and features you use, your location, and applicable law. Consumer health data is defined very broadly and many of the categories of data we collect could also be considered consumer health data.

Examples of consumer health data may include:

  • Information about your health-related conditions, symptoms, status, diagnoses, testing, or treatments (including surgeries, procedures, medications, or other interventions). For example, we may collect such information through surveys or other communication with you for research studies and improving product accessibility.
  • Measurements of bodily functions, vital signs, or characteristics, including photographs, which may also be considered biometric information.
  • Other information that may be used to infer or derive data related to the above or other health information.

Sources of Consumer Health Data

As described further in the Privacy Policy, we collect personal data (which may include consumer health data) directly from you, from your interactions with our products and services, when you visit our websites, user our online forms and services, from health care providers, and other publicly available sources.

Why We Collect and Use Consumer Health Data

We collect and use consumer health data for the purposes described in the US Privacy Policy. Primarily, we collect and use consumer health data as reasonably necessary to provide you with the products or services you have requested or authorized.
