SonderMind Inc. and its related companies (“SonderMind” or “we” or “us”) operates the website (the “Website”) and the SonderMind mobile applications, including but not limited to SonderMind Video Telehealth and Messaging (all hereinafter collectively, "Sites"). This privacy policy (this “Policy”) describes the policies and procedures regarding our collection, use, and sharing of the information we collect through the Sites.


How and Why We Use the Data We Collect

We collect several different types of information that can directly or indirectly identify an individual (“Personal Data”) for various purposes, including to provide our services and to improve this Site. In addition to the information that we collect from you directly, we may also receive information about you from other sources, including third parties, business partners, our affiliates, or publicly available sources.

We use cookies and similar tracking technologies to track the activity on our Site so that we can better understand our users and provide tailored services.

This Usage Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol address (e.g. IP address), browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data which allows us to build and maintain our services with user feedback. We may randomly record how you interact with our Sites, but your personal information will always be suppressed and invisible in a recording.

Additionally, when you create an account with SonderMind, we collect information directly from you, such as credit card information and details about your insurance. We may use Account and Service Data to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be helpful to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us. All you have to do is hit the unsubscribe link or the instructions provided in any communication we send.
