Special Cases in which We Share Personal and Password Information
How We Use Demographic Information
We may review all demographic information. We may use demographic information to tailor the Service and communications to your interests, and to display targeted advertising that may be relevant to you.
Our Security Precautions
The Service has generally accepted security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and integrity of the information under our control. Although we make good faith efforts to store the information collected by the Service in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, no data transmissions over the Internet are guaranteed to be completely secure and we cannot guarantee complete security.
Use of Other Users’ Information
By using the Service, you agree that, with respect to other users’ personally identifiable information that you obtain through your use of the Service, including, without limitation, first and last name, email address, photo, hometown, and any voluntarily disclosed, non-personally identifiable medical information shared through the Service, as applicable, you will only use such information for: (i) Service related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages; and (ii) any other purpose that such user expressly agrees to after adequate disclosure of such purpose. Under no circumstances may you disclose personally identifiable information about another user to any third party without our consent and the consent of such other user.
If you use the forum feature of the Service, any information you post will be freely viewable by other users of the Service. We encourage you to think carefully before posting any content you deem private using the Service.
There are two types of cookies: session-based cookies and persistent-based cookies. Session-based cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent-based cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. They include such information as a unique identifier for your browser. Standing alone, cookies do not contain personal data, and therefore do not identify you personally; they merely recognize your browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to us by registering with and logging into the Service, you will remain anonymous to us.
Third party advertisers on the Site may also place or read cookies on your browser. If you wish to disable cookies, the “help” function available on most browsers will tell you how; however, if you set your browser to disable cookies, you may not be able to access certain areas on the Site or use certain features of the Service.
Your IP Address
Each time you visit the Site, we automatically collect your IP address (which is a number that can be used to identify your location) and the web page from which you came. In order to administer and optimize the Site for you and to diagnose problems with the Site, we use your IP address to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information about you. We may also collect the URL from which you came to the Site and the URLs visited on the Site. A URL is the full address of a website page.
