Thrive is intended for the exclusive use of registered users who are residents of the United States of America. The type of information Thrive collects, the manner in which it is collected, and the specified uses of the collected information may not be legal in certain countries outside of the United States. Because of these various laws, regulations, and medical practices, information designated to be used in one country may not be approved for use outside of that country.
Therefore, the collection of information by Thrive may not be appropriate for residents of other countries. THRIVE IS DESIGNED TO COMPLY WITH THE LAWS AND REGULATIONS OF THE UNITED STATES ONLY. Nothing on Thrive should be considered a solicitation or promotion of any product or an indication for any product that is not permitted by the laws or regulations of the country where the user of the product resides.1.

If at any time you need medical attention, contact your physician or call 911.
If you choose to use Thrive, we collect the following information from you or about you.Personal Information

- Case number: The case number is a number that your Healthcare Provider has given you to obtain access to Thrive. Your Healthcare Provider may use the case number to identify you in its own records. In the context of its own records, your Healthcare Provider may refer to the case number by a different term, such as “customer number” or “patient number”. We use the case number to identify you as a valid user of Thrive and to help your Healthcare Provider locate your account in Thrive.
If your Personal Information changes (such as email address), you can log into your account and change the appropriate information.Assessment Scores
Assessments are questionnaires that are intended to measure the severity of symptoms of a disorder, the rate of symptom improvement, the extent to which a disorder is impacting the respondent’s life, or other similar measures. Since Thrive does not make diagnoses or other clinical evaluations, the assessments in Thrive are used solely to allow you to compare your assessment scores to the scores of other people.
“Usage Information” is information about your interaction with Thrive and your inputs into Thrive, with the exception of Personal Information and Assessment Scores. Usage Information includes, but is not limited to, the pages that you visit, when you visit them, the items that you click on, and text that you input into Thrive. Thrive stores your Usage Information.Individually Identifiable Health Information

Cookie technology allows us to collect “clickstream” data, which is not personally identifying information, but which reflects your activities on Thrive. A cookie does not collect or keep your name or other personally identifying information, but when you revisit Thrive the cookie allows us to bring you the content and features likely to be of greatest interest to you based on your previous activities on Thrive.3.

“Non-Individually Identifiable Heath Information” is any set of information that includes your Assessment Scores and your Usage Information but does not include your Personal Information. For example, a set of information that includes data about which Thrive modules you use, how often you use them, how far you progressed in each module, and your Assessment Scores, but does not contain your email address, first name, or case number, is Non-Individually Identifiable Health Information. If someone has Non-Individually Identifiable Health Information but not Individually Identifiable Health Information, there is no reasonably possible method for that person to determine that the information refers to you.

When we do that, it will usually, but not always, be combined with the Non-Individually Identifiable Health Information of many other Thrive users.
