Effective June 20, 2016
Oxyjon (www.oxyjon.com) (“Site”) is a web site that aims to improve health outcomes through better information access, visibility and analytics. The strength of this platform lies in meaningful use of data while protecting privacy of individual. Towards this, the users of this platform share their health information with other users to create collective knowledge about health issues, and treatments. The users may also choose to share information with health care providers that can enhance effectiveness of their treatment and monitoring.
What kind of information we collect
Default Shared Data
Some of the information that Members provide about themselves may be shared with the other users. This may include:
- Treatment provider and contact details
Voluntarily Shared Data
Members may choose to share some data with other Members or Partners that could be used to reasonably identify them (“Personal Information”), including name, phone number, email address, blood group. Examples of Voluntarily Shared Data may include:
- Sharing of health parameters with treatment providers
- Information shared with other members as response to request by other members (e.g., in doctor recommendation, blood request services)
Some of the information that Members enter into certain fields when registering to use or using the Site will not be shared (“Restricted Data”). The type of Restricted Data that Members may submit at the Site may include:
- Password as collected as part of registration
- Address, Password, Date of Birth, Gender, Aadhaar number, Insurance provider, Insurance account number, Conditions, Symptoms, Allergies, Emergency contact details, Non-medical intervention, Treatment, Procedure, Uploaded documents as collected as part of my Health Record
When a Member enters Personal Information, including name, phone number and email address, as part of registering to use Oxyjon, that Personal Information is treated as Restricted Data. Once the user chooses to respond to doctor recommendation or blood donation request, this personal information will be treated as Voluntarily Shared Data.

- Session Cookies are temporary cookies that remain only until you log out of the website or exit your web browser. Session Cookies do not store any Personal Information, only a unique visitor ID number that may be used to ensure Members are properly authenticated and can view site information.
- Persistent Cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer, even after you leave the Site. Persistent Cookies also do not store any Personal Information. Persistent Cookies store preferences that should persist from visit to visit, like user location, location coordinates, and a unique token to enable us to understand how Members use the Site (“Site Usage”). When you access our Site, we use your location to customize the services (for example, to identify the emergency establishments that are in your geographical proximity.) The information includes location, location coordinates. The sources of this information include the GPS of your device and IP address.

Most browsers are set to automatically allow cookies. Please note it may be possible to disable some (but not all) cookies through your device or browser settings, but doing so may interfere with certain functionality on the Services.
How your data is used
Members should expect that every piece of information they submit, except for Restricted Data, may be shared with the other Members, and Partners ated level. Members are encouraged to share health information but should consider that the more information that is entered, the more likely it is that a Member could be located or identified.
There are instances where both Default Shared Data, Voluntarily Shared Data and Restricted Data, including Personal Information, may be used and disclosed including, but not limited to, the following:
- Oxyjon uses Default Shared Data, Voluntarily Shared Data, Restricted Data, and Site Usage internally, as needed, for analytics, for maintenance and operation of the Site, and to create the best possible tools and functionality for patients. Oxyjon may be interested in better understanding the patient experience and improving treatment options and health outcomes for everyone. For example, we may look at questions such as, “What are the common non-medical interventions in some types of people?” This analytics will typically be done on an aggregated data to reduce the likelihood of identification.
- Oxyjon may use a Member’s data in the case of an emergency or other circumstance that we determine requires a member of the management team to directly contact the Member.
- Oxyjon may share or disclose a Member’s data where required by law or to comply with legal process.
- In the event Oxyjon goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another organization, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, the Default Shared Data, Voluntarily Shared Data and Restricted Data, including Personal Information, might be among the assets transferred. Members will be notified via this Site of any such change in ownership or control of Personal Information.
- Oxyjon may also periodically ask Members to complete short surveys about their experiences (including questions about products and services). Survey responses are analyzed, combined with Members’ Default Shared Data and Voluntarily Shared Data. Member participation in these surveys is not required, and refusal to do so will not impact a Member’s experience on the Site.
How Default Shared Data and Voluntarily Shared Data is Used
Default Shared Data is shared as aggregated reports that are made available to other Oxyjon Members.
The Voluntarily Shared Data is shared with other Members and can lead to identification of the Member choosing to share data.
How Restricted Data is Used
Restricted Data is not automatically shared with, sold to, or displayed for other Members or Partners. Specific instances where Restricted Data may be used include, but are not limited to, the following:
- If a Member makes a request, Oxyjon may use Restricted Data, including sharing the Member’s Restricted Data with software/service vendors, for the purpose of fulfilling the request. Examples include requesting an email response from the Oxyjon support team.
The Members data cannot be indexed or stored by Internet search engines (e.g. Google) or other independent sites.
Other security issues
Oxyjon cannot guarantee the identity of any other Members with whom a Member may interact in the course of using the Site or who may have access to a Member’s Voluntarily Shared Data. Additionally, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any data that Members may provide about themselves.
Finally, Members should know that Oxyjon takes commercially reasonable technical precautions to help keep Member data secure.
Risks and benefits
While our goal is to help patients improve health outcomes, there are no certain benefits to using this website. However, keeping track of personal well-being, treatments, and symptoms has been shown to be helpful in improving overall health.
There are also no known risks to using this website, but there is a possibility that users may feel uncomfortable sharing information online. It is possible that a Member could be identified using information shared on Oxyjon (and/or in conjunction with other data sources). A Member could be discriminated against or experience repercussions as a result of the information shared. For example, it is possible that employers, insurance companies, or others may discriminate based on health information.
In using the Site, Members are free to skip any non-required questions or data fields that make them feel uncomfortable. Members are also free to stop using this service at any time. If a Member chooses to deactivate his/her account, Oxyjon will not use the data in that account as of the date of deactivation. However, the Member’s data will remain in the system for auditing purposes, and any research conducted prior to the deactivation of a Member’s account will still include the Member’s data.
