We at Peacock Software, LLC. (“Peacock Software,”, "Peacock Rx", “We,” “Our”) have developed an online and mobile platform entitled, collectively, “Peacock Rx”, (hereinafter “PRx” or “Platform”) and are committed to maintaining the privacy and security of our users’ personal information. Through this privacy statement, Peacock Software wants to assure you of our commitment to privacy and security and the efforts we undertake to strive to maintain the privacy and security of your personal information. This privacy policy describes how we collect, use, and disclose information through the Peacock Rx website and the PRx Platform, which includes the PRx mobile application.  The Peacock Rx website, platform, and mobile apps were created by Peacock Software, LLC.

About this policy

Agreement to Privacy Policy

Your access and use of this Platform is subject to your agreement with this policy, along with the Peacock Rx Website / Mobile App Terms of Service. By using this Platform, you expressly agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service, and consent to the collection and use of information as discussed in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with the below Policy, or the Terms of Service, do not use or access any part of the Platform for any purpose.

 

Modifications to Privacy Policy

We retain the flexibility to update this policy. We may periodically update this policy to describe how new Website, Platform or Mobile App features may affect our use of your information and to let you know of new controls and features that we may provide you. We will NOT apply changes to this policy retroactively to information We have previously collected.

Applicability of this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy sets forth the privacy practices of the Peacock Rx website and the PRx Platform. Although we strive to provide your local participating pharmacy with your privacy preferences, such participating pharmacy is independently owned and has its own privacy practices. Please contact your local pharmacy for any additional information on how your pharmacy uses your personal information. We do not control your pharmacy’s use of your personal information.

Notice of what information we collect and how it’s used

We collect several types of information:

Personally Identifiable Information

If you provide it to us, we collect and retain personally identifiable information, including, but not limited to, your name, date of birth, telephone number, email address, and your prescription information (which we collect in the course of providing services to you under the PRx Platform). We use this information in order to assist you with prescription refills at participating pharmacies, with finding a Peacock Rx pharmacy, with receiving news and other offers to use at a participating pharmacy, and/or other communications with your pharmacies and other health care organizations as permitted by law.

 

Your local participating pharmacy will also have access to your personally identifiable information you submit via this Platform, and your other protected health information as defined under HIPAA, and will use such information as necessary to provide you the information, products and services that you may request. Your pharmacy has its own privacy practices and PRx has no control over or responsibility for your local pharmacy’s use of information that you may provide to it.

 

We may also use your personally identifiable information to customize your browsing experience and communicate with you and otherwise respond to your questions and suggestions.

 

We may share your personally identifiable information with our suppliers and vendors or with other third parties to enable them to provide services for us or to you. We require those suppliers and vendors to comply with all applicable data privacy laws and regulations, including HIPAA. We do not sell, lease or rent your personal information.

 

All of your personally identifiable information is transmitted and store securely, using high-tech encryption techniques, as required by law set forth by HIPAA.

 

Mobile App

When you use Our Mobile App, We may also collect geo-location information to assist you in quickly finding places or receiving relevant location information, such as where participating pharmacies are found. If you do not want the Mobile App to obtain location data, you can disable the location function on your mobile device, in which case you may not receive relevant information. Location information is not saved or stored beyond what is necessary to ensure a consistent and functional application.

 

We also collect information that identifies the type of device you are using and a unique identifier that identifies you as a user of the Mobile App.  Our Mobile App uses this information to enhance your use of the App by: (i) determining the applicable End User License that applies to you, (ii) checking the device’s network connectivity status, and (iii) saving location information about your favorite pharmacy location you access on the Mobile App.

 

The Mobile App can launch certain other applications on your mobile device: (i) if you select an email link in the Mobile App, your email application will be launched; (ii) if you select a phone number, your phone dialer app will be launched; (iii) certain functions will launch your device's mobile browser.
