MetLife, Inc. and its U.S. affiliates (“MetLife” or “we”) strongly believe in the responsible use of information we collect about individuals. This Nevada Consumer Health Policy (“Policy”) provides information regarding how MetLife and its affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, “MetLife”, “we," “us,” “our,” or “Company”) process Nevada Consumer Health Data as defined by and required under applicable laws in Nevada.

For the purposes of residents of the state of Nevada, Consumer Health Data, as used in this Policy, means personal information that is linked or reasonably linkable to a consumer and that is used to identify the past, present, or future health status of a consumer.

This Policy applies, subject to several exceptions, to personal information that is linked or reasonably linkable to you and that identifies your past, present or future physical or mental health status within the meaning of applicable laws in Nevada.

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

Note that this Policy does not apply to personal information that is not subject to applicable laws in Nevada, including to information that is specifically exempted from applicable laws in Nevada, which includes, among other things, information collected, processed, disclosed, shared, or sold pursuant to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLBA”) and implementing regulations, certain insurance laws, protected health information subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) and its implementing regulations.
