      Consumer health data privacy notice (“CHD Privacy Notice”)

      Effective Date: March 31, 2024

      This CHD Privacy Notice supplements the J&J Privacy Policy and applies specifically to “Consumers” as defined under Washington’s My Health My Data Act (“MHMDA”).

      This CHD Privacy Notice describes Johnson & Johnson Services Inc’s (“we”, “us”, or “our”) practices regarding the collection, use, sharing and disclosure of Consumer Health Data. Any capitalized terms not defined in this CHD Privacy Notice shall have the meanings given to them in the J&J Privacy Policy. Importantly, this CHD Privacy Notice does not supersede, replace, or otherwise amend the J&J Privacy Policy.

      1. Consumer Health Data Collected
      For purposes of this CHD Privacy Notice, Consumer Health Data (“CHD”) is defined as under the MHMDA. Generally, CHD includes personal information that is linked or reasonably linkable to a Consumer and that identifies the Consumer’s past, present, or future physical or mental health status. Importantly, CHD does not include information that does not qualify as CHD under the MHMDA. For example, CHD does not include protected health information subject to the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and its related regulations (“HIPAA”).

      We may collect the following categories of CHD and share these categories of CHD with Third Parties and Affiliates, as described below in the Section of this Policy called “Our Sharing of CHD”:

      • Individual health conditions, treatment, diseases, or diagnosis;
      • Social, psychological, behavioral, and medical interventions;
      • Health-related surgeries or procedures;
      • Use or purchase of prescribed medication;
      • Bodily functions, vital signs, symptoms, or measurements of other types of consumer health data;
      • Diagnoses or diagnostic testing, treatment, or medication;
      • Gender-affirming care information;
      • Reproductive or sexual health information;
      • Biometric data;
      • Genetic data;
      • Precise location information that could reasonably indicate a consumer’s attempt to acquire or receive health services or supplies;
      • Data that identifies a consumer seeking health care services; or
      • Other information that may be used to infer or derive data related to the above or other health information.

      1. Sources of CHD
      We may collect this information from you directly, such as through your use of our websites and services. Similarly, we may collect certain information about you when you interact with our advertisements on third-party websites.

      We may also collect CHD from our Affiliates, business partners, joint marketing partners, public databases, providers of demographic data, publications, professional organizations, social media platforms, caregivers, third party information providers, service providers with which we have a contractual relationship and to which you have provided your personal information, and cookies and other tracking technologies.

      1. Why Consumer Health Data is Collected & How it is Used
      We—and our service providers—may collect, process and use the CHD described in this CHD Privacy Notice for the following purposes:

      • Maintaining or servicing accounts, providing customer service, processing or fulfilling orders and transactions, verifying customer information, processing payments, providing analytic services, providing storage, or providing similar services on our behalf;
      • Ensuring security and integrity of our websites and services to the extent the use of the consumer’s CHD is reasonably necessary and proportionate for these purposes;
      • Undertaking activities to verify or maintain the quality or safety of our products or services, or to improve, upgrade, or enhance our websites, products or services;
      • Personalizing, advertising, and marketing our products and services;
