A. Our Respect for Privacy
B. The Information Health Service Collects
Anonymous Electronic Information. In general, you can browse this Site without telling Health Service who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. Health Service, however, collects your computer’s or mobile device’s IP address, which you necessarily disclose when you visit the Site so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to your computer. The Site utilizes "cookies," which are anonymous, unique identifiers that web pages on the Site may use to store data on your computer or send data to our web server. Health Service may use cookie data to "recognize" you when you visit the Site in the future, to troubleshoot how the Site operates, and for internal analysis of how people use the Site. Should you decide not to accept cookies from the Site, you will limit the functionality Health Service can provide when you visit the Site.
Participating in Activities. When you engage in certain activities on the Site, such as registering for a subscription to the services on the Site, sending messages using the Site, providing feedback, filling out a survey or questionnaire, Health Service may ask you to provide personal and other information. In order to engage in such activities you will be required to provide information that lets Health Service know the specifics of who you are or where you are, and may include, without limitation, your first and last name, mailing address, zip code, email address, telephone numbers, credit card and other information. If you choose to share any personal information with Health Service, you will see that the amount and type of personal information Health Service requests depends on how you use the Site. It is optional for you to engage in these activities. Depending upon the activity, some of the information Health Service asks you to provide is identified as mandatory and some is voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
C. The Way Health Service Uses Information Collected on this Site
Health Service may use your IP address to, among other things: (a) help diagnose problems with the Site, administer and improve the Site, and measure the use of the Site; (b) identify the type of web browsers used, the pages viewed, the web sites from which a visitor found this Site, and the search terms and search engines used to find this Site; and (c) gather other web analytics information relating to visitors’ use and navigation of the Site. This information does not identify you personally. On occasion Health Service may aggregate this data with data on the pages visited by other users to track overall visitor traffic patterns and provide this aggregate information to vendors, business partners, or other parties to demonstrate the amount of interest in the Site and to help Health Service plan for technical infrastructure requirements.
Health Service may always use the information you provide in an anonymous or aggregated format that does not identify you personally, which uses might include, without limitation, to evaluate existing products, services, and systems; to assist in the development of new products or services; research; and to identify trends and changes in relevant industries.
Health Service may disclose personal information in any of the following circumstances: (a) in response to a subpoena, search warrant, court order, or other legal process or request, or as may otherwise be required by applicable law or regulation; (b) to protect and defend Health Service’s rights or property or those of its affiliates or business partners, or others; or (c) as Health Service, in its sole discretion, believes is appropriate under exigent circumstances in response to a perceived threat to the personal safety, property, or rights of any person or organization.
In addition, since Health Service’s database is a business asset, in the event Health Service is reorganized or becomes part of another organization, you consent to the sale, assignment, or transfer of your personal information to a successor that acquires substantially all of the business assets of Health Service, or to an affiliate, as applicable.
