SigmaMD Privacy Policy

Updated May 15, 2023

Sigmoid acts solely as a technology platform to provide you with our Services (as defined below), including connecting you with health care professions and physicians. This Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how Sigmoid Health Inc. (“Sigmoid,” “we,” “us,” or our”) collects, uses, processes, and shares your personal information, and to help you understand and exercise your privacy rights.

Privacy Policy Table of Contents



This Privacy Policy applies to personal information processed by us, including on our websites, mobile applications, and other online or offline offerings, such as SigmaMD. To make this Privacy Policy easier to read, our websites, web & mobile applications, and other offerings are collectively called the “Services.”

Supplemental Notices.
Sigmoid may provide additional privacy notices to individuals at the time we collect their personal information. For example, we may provide a specific privacy notice to participants that describes our privacy practices in connection with health information. These additional privacy notices may supplement this Privacy Policy or may apply in lieu of this Privacy Policy.

Notice Regarding Patient Protected Health Information. In some cases, physicians and other licensed professionals who are registered with Sigmoid and utilize our Services to deliver in-person care and telehealth services (each a “Clinician”) and/or professional practices (each a “Practice”) may use our Services to treat or otherwise interact with patients (each a “Patient”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to any protected health information about Patients that is subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and its implementing regulations (“HIPAA”) that we process solely on behalf of Clinicians and/or Practices pursuant to a business associate agreement (“Patient PHI”). The Clinicians’ and/or Practices’ respective notice of privacy practices govern their collection and use of this Patient PHI. Our processing of this Patient PHI is governed by the business associate agreements that we have in place with the Clinicians and/or Practices, not this Privacy Policy. Any questions or requests relating to Patient PHI should be directed to the relevant Clinician and/or Practice.

Note that if a Patient asks us to process their Patient PHI outside the scope of their relationship with a specific Clinician and/or Practice, this information may be subject to our Privacy Policy.

Changes to our Privacy Policy
. We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time in our sole discretion. If there are any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you as required by applicable law. You understand and agree that you will be deemed to have accepted the updated Privacy Policy if you continue to use our Services after the new Privacy Policy takes effect.


The categories of personal information we collect depend on how you interact with us, our Services, and the requirements of applicable law.

To learn more about how to opt-out of Google Analytics’ use of your information, please click here. For our Services that require authentication, we have taken steps, on a best effort basis, to not share health information with Google Analytics, and to anonymize the users IP address.
