1. Information We Collect and How We Use It
Our servers record your computer’s IP address in “server logs” when you use our websites. We use these logs to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our websites. Your IP address is also used to gather generalized demographic information that does not specifically identify you.
Registration, Shopping, Surveys, and Polls.
You may also have the option to send us comments or feedback following a survey, poll, or online transaction, or report any problem you may have with our websites. These actions may require or result in your giving us personally identifying information, such as your email address.
Personally identifying information such as an email address may be used to send you registration or purchase confirmation emails, as well as future Essential Access Health and related communications. Anonymous user demographic profile data may be shared with our business affiliates or advertisers on an individualized or aggregate basis. Personally identifying information may also be shared with unaffiliated third parties, though only with your prior consent.
If you inquire about a research study that is being conducted by Essential Access Health, your contact information will only be used to communicate answers to your questions. If you agree to participate in a study, you will become subject to the privacy policies associated with that particular study and you will be give notice of those policies. If you choose not to participate, your contact information will be deleted from our records.
Third-Party Companies and Individuals.
In order to facilitate our business, we sometimes use third-party companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, including, but not limited to, registering program participants, processing credit card payments, and shipping products. We disclose personal information to third parties only to the extent necessary to charge your credit card, fill and deliver your order, complete your registration, provide customer service or credit, and send promotional announcements to you.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, third parties who provide services for us are prohibited from using your personal information for their direct marketing purposes and from sharing, selling, or otherwise using such information, unless you choose to opt in to the marketing, sharing, or other activities of the third parties involving the use of personal information.
If you send us information voluntarily, such as through personal correspondence or emails, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities on our sites, we may collect such information. We use such information, and other information that we obtain from your use of our website services, to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, and for similar purposes. Please also note that information you volunteer in public areas of the sites, such as chat rooms and bulletin boards, is not protected information, and anyone could potentially collect and use such information in ways we cannot control.
We may on occasion partner with various third party companies and may gather information regarding preferences which indicate you may be interested in “opting in” to being contacted about products or services our partners may provide. This information may be made available to those companies on an individualized or aggregate basis.
In addition to using your information as described above, we may occasionally send you emails announcing special bulletins, announcements, changes in our services, and other information we believe will be of interest to you. You may “opt out” of receiving these mailings at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions in each email. If you would like to unsubscribe to all Essential Access Health mailing lists at once, please send an email with the word “Unsubscribe” in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will distribute your request accordingly.
2. Linked Sites
Essential Access Health has physical, procedural and electronic security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. The servers in which we store personal information are kept in a secure environment. Only authorized personnel have access to your information. We make every effort to ensure that our websites and any third party sites we use protect your personal data using industry-standard technology (e.g. SSL encryption) to prevent unauthorized electronic access to sensitive financial information such as credit card numbers. Notwithstanding these efforts, we caution you that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. That’s why we also have sophisticated monitoring features on our servers that tell us if anyone was attempting to or had breached our security so we can take immediate measures against them.
