HIPAA Compliance

Square’s approach to security is designed to protect both you and your customers.  If you are subject to HIPAA as a Covered Entity or Business Associate (as defined in HIPAA) and use the Services in a manner that causes Square to create, receive, maintain, or transmit Protected Health Information (PHI) on your behalf, then you agree to the HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (“HIPAA BAA”).  

Square sellers are responsible for determining whether they are subject to HIPAA requirements and whether they intend to use the Services in connection with PHI.  ​
