This Washington Consumer Health Data Privacy Policy provides information regarding how Unique Travel Corp. (“Unique,” “we,” “us,” “our” or the “Company,”), the worldwide representative for Sandals and Beaches Resorts,  process consumer health data subject to Washington’s My Health My Data Act (“WMHMDA”). The Washington Health Data Privacy Statement (the “Health Data Privacy Statement”) supplements the Privacy Statement (“Privacy Policy”).

To what data does this Policy apply?

We refer in this Policy to this data as “Washington consumer health data.”

Note that this Policy does not apply to personal information that is not subject to the WMHMDA, including to information that is specifically exempted from the WMHMDA, which includes, among other things, protected health information subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and its implementing regulations.

Additional information relating to how we process data not subject to the WMHMDA is available in the Privacy Policy. 

What Washington consumer health data do we collect?

We collect Washington consumer health data in connection with our services and products and the type of Washington consumer health data depends on the specific service or product offering that you use or receive and your interaction with us.

Washington consumer health data does not include data related to the shopping habits or interests of a consumer, where that information is not used to identify the specific past, present or future health status of the consumer. For example, if you search for or shop for health-related items on one of our sites or read an article about a health- related condition or service, we do not consider associated data consumer health data where it is not used to infer or identify your specific past, present or future health status.
