How does League collect my Information?

League receives employment information from your employer or insurance carrier so we can set up your profile and prepare your account for enrollment. After that, we collect your Information when you sign-up for League’s Platform and as you submit it through the use of the Platform.


Depending on the Services and integrations you participate in or enable and the Service being offered to you by your employer through the League Platform, we may collect Personal Information through your use of the particular Services and integrations. These integrated services and solutions may have their own and separate consent process required prior to you using them with League.


How does League use my Information?

How we use the Information we collect depends in part on which Services are offered to you, which Services you use, how you use them and any preferences you have communicated to us. Below are the specific purposes for which we use the Information we collect about you.


For enrollment and decision support – We guide you every step of the way so you fully understand your options and choose the best coverage for your needs. To do so, we gather the Information we have received from your employer about you and apply eligibility rules to facilitate your enrollment into your health benefits as well as any other benefit spending accounts offered to you through your employer.


For a personalized digital wallet – We provide you with one easily-accessible place to manage your coverage, dependents and benefit spending accounts.


For processing your claims – If you are being offered additional benefit spending accounts by your employer through the League Platform, you can submit eligible claims online. In order to process these claims and reimburse your bank account, we process the claim information provided to us by you and use the Payment Information we have on file.


For Customer Care services – Through the Platform you have immediate live chat support for all your benefit-related questions. To answer your request and to provide you with personalized recommendations, our agents access your Personal Information on file and may ask you to provide us with additional Information.

For research and development – We’re always looking for ways to make our Platform smarter, faster, secure, integrated and useful to you. We use collective learnings about how people use our Platform and feedback provided directly to us to troubleshoot and to identify trends, usage, activity patterns and areas for integration and improvement of the Platform.


To market, promote and drive engagement – If you give your consent, we use your Information to send newsletters, surveys, offers and promotional materials that may be of interest to you and tailored to your individual health and wellness goals.

How League shares Information we collect

We may share your Information with third parties so we can provide our services to you. If we need to share your Information with third parties, we will limit the Information to the minimum amount necessary to ensure the provision and quality of the Services we offer you. We share your Information with third parties as follows:


Contractors – We may disclose your Personal Information with contractors that work on our behalf and assist us in providing and supporting the services we offer.


Third Party Providers – We share Information with third parties that help us operate, provide, improve, integrate, customize and support our Platform and Services we offer to you such as:


• Cloud hosting services;

• Customer service platform;

• Credit card processing;

• Health concierge;

• Connector services and data integration.


If a Third Party Provider needs to access Information about you to perform services on our behalf, they do so under close instruction from us, including policies and procedures designed to protect your Information. Our Third Party Providers undergo a thorough security and privacy review as a part of the evaluation process and then regular SOC1, SOC2 and/or ISO/IEC 27001 audit reviews thereafter. In the event these audits have material findings that present risks to League or our clients, we work closely with the vendor to track their remediation efforts until the issue has been resolved.


Insurance Carriers – We’ll automatically feed your benefits elections and status/profile updates to your Insurance Carriers for faster, more accurate enrollment and to determine eligibility. When you reach out to us for support about your eligibility or coverage, we may share this Information with your Insurance Carriers on your behalf.


Your Employer – We may share Information with your employer in an anonymous and aggregated or group format only. Any data sharing practices going beyond anonymous, aggregated or group format need your explicit consent. Even with your consent, we will only share de-identifiable data with your Employer. We will use procedures compliant with applicable privacy laws and regulations to ensure that all identifiable data and dimensions have been removed from the data sets and reports provided to your Employer. Please note that your Employer may combine the information we provide with other data available to them and use the combined data at their discretion, including to evaluate the overall program, as well as to provide additional benefits, programs and services. Your Employer’s use of the data and reports are not controlled by us, and this Policy does not cover your Employer’s data use and sharing practices. It is Your Employer’s responsibility to comply with its own privacy policy and applicable laws. We encourage you to review your Employer’s data practices with your Human Resources team.


Service Providers – We may share your information with Service Providers you choose through the League Platform including our Marketplace. When you book an appointment and buy a product through the Platform, we automatically provide your first and last name as well as a Service or product description to the Service Provider. We want everyone to feel safe and cared for when they visit League Marketplace or use a Service Provider offered through the Platform. So before we admit any new Service Providers, we thoroughly review their practices to make sure they’re in line with our standards. We also regularly review our Service Providers to make sure they stay compliant.

If you do, you may give these Devices and Third Party Apps access to your account and Information about you like your name and email address, and any content you choose to use in connection with those apps and devices. Device and Third Party App policies and procedures are not controlled by us, and this Policy does not cover how Devices and Third Party Apps use your Information. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of third parties before connecting to or using their applications or services to learn more about their privacy and information handling practices. If you object to Information about you being shared with these third parties, please disable the device or app within your League account settings.

Is my Personal Information and other data secure?

At League, we take security and privacy very seriously. We’re committed to protecting your data, and our highest priority is keeping your sensitive information – especially your personal health information – safe. We follow strict security and compliance standards not only because we need to meet specific regulations, but because we consider it one of the most important things we can do for you.


Security is at the heart of every process and every technology we use across all our teams at League. The League Platform is regularly audited to make sure it complies with security, availability and confidentiality requirements for managing client data.


Communication with League should always be done through the League Platform where the information is encrypted. While League makes every effort to secure all communications within our control and in our Platform, please be advised that no method of delivery is absolutely secure and any communication of Personal Information may be accidentally or deliberately intercepted by third parties. No company, including League, can fully eliminate security risks associated with your Information. While we strive to protect your Information, we cannot guarantee its security.


To help protect yourself and your Information, choose a unique password for our Platforms and do not use a password that you would use on any other website or online service. You are responsible for the security of your Information that you transmit to us or view, download or otherwise access when using public or otherwise unsecured networks. If you use a mobile device to accept your authorization code, you should have the ability to remotely wipe the phone in the event that your device is lost or stolen.


Who at League has access to my Information?

Your Personal Information is maintained on League’s infrastructure or those of third-party providers.

Please note that we will only retain your Personal Information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements. To figure out the appropriate retention period for Personal Information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the Personal Information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Information, the purposes for which we process your Personal Information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, the applicable legal requirements, and regulatory retention periods.


Can I request that League restrict processing for some of my Information?

Because of the type of Services we offer, we can’t accommodate requests to restrict the processing of certain sets of Information. You, however, will be able to limit the Information added to your profile based on your use of Services and participation in Programs, the Devices and Third Party Apps you connect to your account and the consent you provide for any data sharing practices. If you want us to stop processing parts of your Information, you can request that all data be deleted through the process above. You can also limit the Personal Information provided to us as you participate in the Services and programs offered to you.
