Welcome to the Empyrean Benefit Solutions, Inc. ("Empyrean") website (the “Site”) that is specific to your employer. Empyrean performs third party administration services related to the health and welfare benefit programs of your employer, former employer and/or plan sponsor (collectively, the “Employer”). We appreciate the opportunity to serve you.

At Empyrean we respect your privacy and this Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy” or “Policy”) explains how Empyrean collects, uses and discloses information about you when you visit the Site, use Empyrean’s mobile application(s) and other online products and services that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Services”) or when you participate in any interactive features of the Services or otherwise interact with us (e.g., contact us via telephone or web chat or communicate with us through email). This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into the Empyrean Site’s Terms of Use (“Terms of Use”). In addition, in the event we offer a Service that does not reference a privacy policy, this Privacy Policy will apply to such offering unless a separate privacy policy explicitly states that it is applicable to such offering in lieu of this Policy.

If you do not agree to the terms in this Privacy Policy or in the Terms of Use, you should not use the Site, the Services or contact us via the other methods listed in this Policy.

Please keep in mind that we may revise this Privacy Policy at any time and from time to time. If we revise our Privacy Policy, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of this Policy and post the revised policy on the Site. We may also elect to provide additional notice by adding a statement to our Site. We suggest that you review this Privacy Policy whenever you access the Services or otherwise interact with us to stay informed about Empyrean’s information practices and your options.

Definition of Personal Information

We define "Personal Information" as any data or information that can be used to identify you or your dependents or beneficiaries. This information includes but is not limited to name, address, age, date of birth, Social Security Number (or other identifier, such as driver's license or state identification number or employee identification number), bank account information, e-mail address, telephone number or information related to your access of the Site and/or use of the Services which may include but not be limited to browser agent, IP address, internet domain, or date/times you access the Site. We may request Personal Information from you in order to deliver requested materials to you, respond to your questions, or deliver a product or Service(s) to you.

Collecting Personal Information

We collect, store and use Personal Information (defined below) (also referred to as “User Data” in the Terms of Use) so that we can perform the Service(s) for which we have been contracted by your Employer relating to your Employer’s employee benefit programs under which you may be participating or become eligible to participate.

We obtain Personal Information in several ways. Firstly, we obtain Personal Information about you, your dependents and/or your beneficiaries that has been provided to us directly from your Employer. We also collect Personal Information that you voluntarily submit to us whether directly on the Site or via Site interaction (e.g., web chat), or when you otherwise contact us (e.g., by phone or email). For example, when you call us, we record all calls and those calls may be shared with your Employer for the purpose of administering your employer’s health plans. Finally, we will automatically collect your Personal Information when you visit and navigate our Site, use the Services, or otherwise interact with us. Examples include: (i) log information (e.g., browser type, IP address, pages viewed); (ii) location information (e.g., precise location of your device in accordance with device permissions); (iii) device information (e.g., information about the computer or mobile device being used to access the Site or Services, operating system information, unique device identifiers); and (iv) cookies and other tracking mechanisms (further discussed below in ‘Other Information Collected’).

When you voluntarily submit your Personal Information on the Site or through any Site interactive features, over the phone or via email, you are giving your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and with our administration agreement with your employer.

Other Information Collected

When you visit our Site, we collect information that does not identify you personally but does provide us with usage data, such as the number of visitors we receive and which pages they visited most often. This data helps us analyze and improve the Service(s) we provide.

Our Site may write and read "cookies" to your web browser. A cookie is an element of data that is stored temporarily or permanently on your computer and can be communicated between the Sites and your browser. We use cookies as unique identifiers to track each user, and use is required for the proper operation of the Site. A cookie is not a computer program and has no ability to read data residing on your computer or instruct it to perform any function. We do not use cookies to store Personal Information about you.

We may also use what is known as "client-side page tagging", which uses code on each page of the Site to write certain information about the page and the visitor to a log when a page is rendered to your browser. This technique is commonly used on commercial websites. "Tagging" does result in JavaScript or other client-side code to be run on your computer, but it is limited to providing information about the page from our Site that you are requesting and the configuration of your browser. It will not read any of the data files on your computer or execute other functions. It does not extract any personal information about you. You can prevent tagging by disabling JavaScript in your browser, but that may prevent you from using some or all of our Site's features.

Information Collected from Other Sources

Empyrean may also obtain your Personal Information from other sources. For example, we may collect information about you from publicly available sources or from third parties as directed by your Employer in support of our delivery of the Services. In addition, if you log into the Site through a social media site we may have access to information from that site such as your name, account information and other information pursuant to the authorization procedures determined by such social media site.

Use of Personal Information

We may use the Personal Information we collect in accordance with the Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy to deliver, provide, maintain and improve our Service(s). We may use the Personal Information we collect to: (i) provide you with customer support services; (ii) provide you with technical support services; (iii) perform updates to the Site and/or Service(s) and provide related security alerts; (iv) perform analytics related to the Service(s); (v) improve and update the Service(s); (vi) personalize your access to and use of the Service(s); (vii) prevent illegal or fraudulent activities including without limitation, fraud detection, security enhancements, investigate security incidents or other unauthorized access attempts; (viii) provide you with information about Empyrean and its offerings, products, services and events; (ix) provide reports to your Employer; and (x) other legally permissible activities that are related to the Site and Service(s). We may also use information about you in aggregated format that has been otherwise de-identified so that such information cannot be reasonably used to identify you for any legally permissible purposes. Empyrean also may grant third parties with similar use rights that are solely in connection with the services they provide to Empyrean in connection with our delivery and performance of the Service(s).

In addition to the foregoing, the table below provides examples of how we may use your Personal Information and our reasons for such use:
