The Information We Collect About You
We collect information about you directly from you and from third parties, as well as automatically through your use of our Services.
Information We Collect Directly from You through the Site. The information we collect from you depends on how you use our Site. To request more information from us, you must provide us with identifiers or employment-related information such as your name, your job title and the name of the customer company you work for, your contact information, such as your business email and phone number, and your reason for contacting us.
Information We Collect Through Our Corporate Customer Relationships. In order to manage our customer relationships with our corporate customers, we collect identifiers and employment-related information about and from our corporate customers’ employees and workforce. This information may include names, titles, business email addresses and phone numbers, work location, and information about an employee or workforce client’s role at the corporate customer (such as the department they work in, products or issues worked on, and other similar information). We use this information to administer our corporate customer contracts and to market our Services to corporate customers. When you/your employer are subscribed to one of our Services, listservs or community portals, we may collect information such as your name, email address, profession, and customer affiliation.
Information Collected and Used in Loopback Services. Loopback collects medical information, called “protected health information” under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”), in Loopback’s role as a business associate to health care providers; however, not all Loopback Services collect protected health information. The protected health information is used to support Loopback customers’ health care operations and is received by Loopback in its capacity as a business associate to its clients. The privacy of such data is governed by HIPAA rather than any state privacy law.
Loopback also collects personal information about consumers that are health care practitioners (“practitioners”) directly from its corporate health care customers, or from third party providers of data, such as health care claims data aggregators, and governmental sources, in order to provide Services to the health care industry. Loopback’ customers in the health care industry can include health care providers and health systems, data aggregators working in the health care industry, pharmaceutical manufacturers and general vendors.

F. Dispute Resolution; Binding Arbitration. Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims, including all privacy related claims, with Loopback and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us, unless you opt out of arbitration by following the instructions set forth below. No class or representative actions or arbitrations are allowed under this arbitration provision. In addition, arbitration precludes you from suing in court or having a jury trial.
(i) No Representative Actions. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you and Loopback agree that any dispute arising out of related these Terms, including claims related to privacy and data security, is personal to you and Loopback and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual action, and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
(ii) Arbitration Disputes.
Except for small claims disputes in which you or Loopback seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or Loopback seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property, you and Loopback waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any other dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, including claims related to privacy and data security, (collectively, “Disputes”) resolved in court. Instead, for any Dispute that you have against Loopback you agree to first contact Loopback and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim (“Notice”) to Loopback by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by certified mail addressed to 14900 Landmark Blvd., Suite 240, Dallas, Texas 75254, Attn: President. The Notice must (a) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (b) describe the nature and basis of the Dispute; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and Loopback cannot reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may submit the Dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All Disputes submitted to JAMS will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration before one arbitrator. Arbitration proceedings will be held in Dallas Texas unless you are a consumer, in which case you may elect to hold the arbitration in your county of residence. For purposes of this Section 11(F), a “consumer” means a person using the Services for personal, family or household purposes. You and Loopback agree that Disputes will be held in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules”). The most recent version of the JAMS Rules are available on the JAMS website and are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
(iii) You and Loopback agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 11(F) will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any Dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability. The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
(iv) The arbitration will allow for the discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the Dispute. The arbitrator, Loopback, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including information gathered, prepared and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the Dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
(v) You and Loopback agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee (up to a maximum of $250 if you are a consumer), and Loopback will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Loopback, Loopback will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Loopback agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Texas and the United States sitting in Dallas, Texas have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
(vi) Any Dispute must be filed within one year after the relevant claim arose; otherwise, the Dispute is permanently barred, which means that you and Loopback will not have the right to assert the claim.
(vii) You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 11(F) by contacting us at email@example.com. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 11(F).
(viii) If any portion of this Section 11(F) is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 11(F) or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 11(F); and (c) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section 11(F) is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 11(F) will be enforceable.
