Only some of these categories of information identify you directly, but each category offers some information about your interests and activities that could be used to make inferences about you. The next section of this policy describes how We use the information we collect.

    • Information That You Voluntarily Provide 

      Site Registration. We have constructed this Web site so that you may visit us and review information about the services we offer without revealing your identity or volunteering any personally identifying information.

    • Information That Is Routinely Collected By Our Site Technology: 

      IP Address. We may choose to record the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer when you visit our site. Without more, the IP address does not identify you personally, but it is what allows us to maintain communications with you as you move about our site. 

      Cookies. We also collect information about your use of our site through cookies and similar technology. A "cookie" is a unique numeric code that we transfer to your computer so that we can keep track of your interests and preferences and recognize you as a return visitor to our site. Cookie technology allows us to collect "clickstream" data, which is not personally identifying information, but which reflects your activities on the site, including your interest in certain products or section of our web-site. A cookie does not collect or keep your name or other personal identifying information, but when you revisit our site the cookie allows us to bring you the content and features likely to be of greatest interest to you based on your previous activities on our site.

    Product Reports. If you contact "Us" regarding your experience in using one of our products, we may use the information you provide in reports to expedite your reason for contact by our internal staff or provide it to the manufacturer so they may contact you directly regarding the unexpected event involving use of their product. 

    IP Address. In addition to using the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer to maintain communications with you as you move about our site, we also may use your IP address to personalize content provided on the Web site.

    Law Enforcement. In certain limited circumstances, "We" may be called upon to release your personal information in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, law, or regulation. We plan to cooperate in responding to such requests, taking appropriate measures to ensure that the requester understands the sensitive nature of the personal information that they may receive. We also reserve the right to cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating and prosecuting users who violate our rules or engage in behavior that is illegal or harmful to this or other web sites. 
     

  3. Our Relationship to Third Parties 

    We may use third parties to provide services and information on our site and we may provide some co-branded services in partnership with others. We also may use third parties to analyze data collected on our site. We will not disclose your personally identifying information to anyone other than "Our" own employees and those third parties with whom we have a business relationship. If we allow a third party contractor to have access to your personally identifying information, we will not authorize them to take it or use it for any purpose that is not consistent with this privacy policy. 

    We pledge that we will not sell or disclose any personally identifying information or health-related personal information you provide on our site to an unrelated third party without your express permission, except as explained below:

    • Cookies. We do not allow other sites or third parties to use our cookies for their own purposes or to place their own cookies on your computer when you access services through our site.

    Other Important Information About Our Relationship With Third Parties 

    • Links to Other Sites. We also feature links to Web sites that we believe you might find useful and informative. Please be aware, however, that we do not endorse or recommend these sites' content or services, and we are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites.

      *Deletion Policy.

The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of information about you or your health-related interests may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. Nevertheless, we promise that upon receiving your request, "We" will delete all personal information stored in the databases "We" actively use for research and daily business activities, or stored in other readily searchable media. In addition, we will use commercially reasonable efforts not to disclose any personal information stored in a non-erasable format after receiving your request for removal, except as required by law.

"We" will not disclose personally identifiable information that we receive in e-mail, but all e-mail transmissions are vulnerable to unauthorized interception. In addition, we remind you that e-mail sent or received through an employer's computer or computer system is not confidential and may be the legal property of the employer.
       
  6. Our Security Measures 

    We want your personal information to remain as secure as reasonably possible and will make every effort to do so
     

  7. Changes in Our Privacy Policy 

    We will only use personal information in the manner described in the Privacy Policy in effect when the information was collected from you. However, we reserve the right to change the terms of this Privacy Policy at any time by posting revisions to our site. If at any point, we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by e-mail to the extent that we have your e-mail address. You will be given the choice at that time to "opt-in" for any additional uses or disclosures of your personally identifiable information that you made available to us prior to the change in our policy.
