Collection and Use of Information
The information that we gather generally can be categorized as either anonymous or personally identifiable. Anonymous (or sometimes referred to as “aggregate”) information is information that cannot be traced back to a specific individual. This includes website usage, referral, domain and platform information. It also includes each user’s IP address and information from a “cookie,” which is a standard Internet technology that allows us to both store and retrieve information on a user’s system. We use this anonymous information to obtain a better understanding of how visitors use our website and to make decisions on how to improve it. Personally identifiable information is information you provide that lets us know specific facts about you so that we can respond to your requests. This can include your name, address, email address, phone number, payment information and social security number. In each case, we use Your personally identifiable information for the purpose that it is submitted to us, which may include providing it to third parties with whom we have relationships to deliver the products or services you request. We will use Your Information to respond to requests you may make of us, and from time to time, we may refer to Your Information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our websites, products and services. We may also use Your Information to contact you and/or provide you with general health information (like information on certain health conditions) as well as information about our products and services. We may also enhance or merge Your Information with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes.
