Is Branch HIPAA Compliant?

Branch does not intend uses of the Branch Services to create obligations under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, as amended, (“HIPAA”), and makes no representations that the Branch Services satisfy HIPAA requirements. Since Branch does not process personal health information governed by HIPAA, and Branch is not a covered entity or business associate as defined under HIPAA, HIPAA is not applicable to Branch. Our Terms and Conditions explicitly prohibit customers from sharing sensitive information with Branch (see “Use Policies”).

Accordingly, Branch does not enter into Business Associate Addenda because Branch is not subject to HIPAA. We have a number of customers in the health care services industry/space that are subject to HIPAA and leverage our technology. You can also reference our Privacy Policy which specifically breaks down what data categories we collect through our services for more information.
