What we collect and use
"Personally Identifiable Information or personal information" is information that can identify you as a specific individual, such as your name, telephone number, email address, Social Security number, credit card number, etc. and may include any information involving your health or medical history. ConnectedHealth respects your privacy and the confidentiality of your information, but we do collect personal information in order to allow you to register for an account, process your insurance application, and to better assist our customers. When you register for an account we collect personal information from you such as your name and your email address. When you choose to apply for an insurance plan, we collect additional personal information from you such as your residence address. ConnectedHealth also may obtain non-personally identifiable information such as your use of our websites, communication preferences, which websites you visited immediately prior, the most popular ConnectedHealth web pages visited, and the total number of visitors, etc.

ConnectedHealth does not disclose your personal information to third parties, except for the following:
- Insurance companies, licensed agents and authorized health savings account (HSA) trustees or administrators. If you submit an application for an insurance product offered by us, then we will disclose your personal information to your chosen insurance company to process your application. If you submit an application for an insurance product offered through an insurance agent or agency with whom we have associated, then we may disclose your personal information to that agent or agency to process your requested quote or application. If you complete an enrollment form for a health savings account offered through an authorized HSA trustee or administrator with whom we have associated, then we may disclose your personal information to that trustee or administrator to enroll you in an HSA.
- Legal obligations. We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process on our website.
