COLLECTION OF NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
Even if you do not register with our Web Site or purchase products, we collect non-Personal Information about your use of our Web Site, special promotions and newsletters in the following ways:
A "Cookie" is a piece of data temporarily stored on the user's hard drive containing non-Personal Information about the user. The information collected by Cookies (i) helps us facilitate a user's login authentication and enables session timing, (ii) helps users navigate around the Web Site, (iii) helps us dynamically generate content and advertising on Web pages or in newsletters, (iv) allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our Web Site and selected sponsors' and advertisers' sites, (v) how many people open our emails, and (vi) for what purposes these actions are being taken.
Sharing Non-Personal Information
We may provide third-parties with non-Personal Information that does not allow you to be identified or contacted, including where such information is combined with similar information of other users of our Web Site. For example, we provide our advertisers and other third parties with aggregate, non-Personal Information about our Web Site users, including the number of unique users who visit our Web Site, the demographic breakdown of the registered users of our Web Site, or the activities that visitors to our Web Site engage in while on our Web Site.
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
You are free to visit and use our Web Site without providing any Personal Information. However, in order to take advantage of our products and services that we offer on the Web Site, you will have to provide personal information about yourself ("Personal Information"), including:
- your name
- email address
- mailing address
- billing and credit card information (if you are making a purchase of goods or services)
At registration and at various times as you use this Web Site, you will be given the option of receiving recurring informational/promotional newsletters via email from us and/or directly from third parties, in the event that these are offered. These emails will not contain health-related Personal Information. In order to subscribe to such newsletters via email, we need your contact information, such as name and email address. You can unsubscribe from the newsletters by following the directions in any email newsletter.
You can withdraw your consent at any time. However, if you withdraw your consent to uses that relate to your account and program, we may not be able to continue to provide you with the products and services offered by our Web Site.
We are the sole owner of the information collected on the Web Site.
USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use the Personal Information we collect from you to:
- bill you and conduct other billing and account activity
- respond to any questions that you submit
- seek your comments and feedback about our products and services
- notify you about changes to our services and send offers of new products and services
We may also aggregate Personal Information we collect from users to create a variety of statistics, for example, to determine geography, areas of interest, and purchase history. The information that you provide for these purposes will not be personally identifiable to you.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use Personal Information for any secondary purposes and our agreements with such providers restrict the use of this information.
From time to time we may partner with another party to provide products and services. When a user signs up for these products and services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these products and services. These parties are not allowed to use Personal Information except for the purpose of providing these products and services unless you consent.
We may also release Personal Information to third-parties: (1) to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, court order, or legal process; or (2) in special cases, to investigate or prevent fraud, abuse or illegal conduct, or to protect our rights and/or property.
Protection of Personal Information
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. When you enter your credit card number on our registration or order forms, that information is encrypted.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about security on our Web Site, please email us through the "Help" section of the Web Site.
Access/Correction/Updating Personal Information
Our users are given the opportunity to "opt-out" of having their Personal Information used for purposes not directly related to our Web Site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our order form will have an "opt-out" mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but don't want any marketing material, can keep their email address off our lists.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletters or promotional materials from our partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by following the direction in the applicable newsletter or promotional materials.
