  • With vendors, consultants and other service providers, including, but not limited to, hosting providers and payment processors, who need access to such information to carry out work on our behalf;
  • In response to a request for information if we believe disclosure is in accordance with, or required by, any applicable law, regulation or legal process;
  • With other users of the Services:
    • When you participate in the interactive areas of the Services, certain information that you provide may be displayed to such other users on the Services, such as your name and other content and information you choose to provide.

      • Open practices expose their relationship to the patient and show up as a caregiver for that patient in the list of other caregivers and in the caregiver list of the patient;
      • Hidden practices are exposed only to the patient and to providers who add or are added by the hidden caregiver;
      • Private practices only appear on the patient’s caregiver list. Private practices do not appear on any other caregivers’ list.
    • Patients can further enhance the privacy of selected caregivers by changing that caregiver’s privacy setting from “Open” to “Hidden” or “Private”.
  • If we believe your actions are inconsistent with our user agreements or policies, or to protect the rights, property and safety of ListenMD or others;
  • In connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by another company;
  • Between and among ListenMD and its current and future parents, affiliates, subsidiaries and other companies under common control and ownership; and
  • With your consent or at your direction.
