Your privacy is important to Christiane Northrup, Inc. (“CNI,” “we” or “us”). To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining what information we collect, how we might use that information and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used at www.drnorthrup.com (the “Web site”).

 

The Information Collected

At the Web site, you can subscribe to one of our services (e.g., our online information services), express an opinion, and connect to third-party web sites to order services and products. We collect personally identifiable information that you provide to us. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected on the Web site include, without limitation: your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, and information about your interests in and use of various services, programs, and products. We also may collect information you provide as part of a User Submission. We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit many of our web pages. This information is collected automatically and includes information such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using (e.g., Windows 2000 or Mac OS), and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink).

 

Use of the Information

We may use the personally identifiable information you provide about yourself to fulfill your requests for services, programs, and products, to respond to your inquiries about our offerings, and to offer you other services, programs, or products that we believe may be of interest to you. We sometimes use this information to communicate with you when we make changes to our subscriber agreements, to fulfill a request by you for an online newsletter, or to contact you about your account with us.

The information we collect in connection with our Community section or as part of a User Submission is used to provide an interactive experience. For example, we may use this information to write e-mails, to publish submissions, to offer suggestions to and share stories with our readers, or, from time to time, to offer you services, programs, or products. We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of the Web site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We may also use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as to offer you services, programs, or products.

We will not sell, transfer or otherwise disclose your personal information to third parties, except as follows: (i) we may use third parties to perform specific functions on our behalf and we may disclose such information to help those parties perform their services; (ii) we may be required to disclose such information in response to a legal process, order or investigation (for example, a subpoena or court order); (iii) we may disclose personal information where disclosure is necessary to protect our legal rights or to protect us or others (for example, in order to reduce the risk of fraud or illegal activities); (iv) we may share such information with our affiliates, subsidiaries, and business partners for the purpose of marketing products, programs and services to you or for any other purpose related to our business; and (v) we may acquire, merge with or be acquired by another company or we might sell some or all of our assets, and, in such a case, we may disclose your personal information to another company.

We may also sell, transfer or otherwise distribute certain aggregated non-personal information to third parties. CNI may on occasion combine information we receive online with outside records to enhance our ability to offer information or market to you those services or products that may be of interest to you. For more information regarding our use of information you submit to us, please review our Terms of Use.

“Cookies” are pieces of information that may be placed on your computer by a web site for the purpose of facilitating and enhancing your communications and interaction with that web site.

However, it is possible that some parts of the Web site, such as access to the Health Store, will not function properly if you do so. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, joining our Community. However, once you choose to furnish the Web site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. We use cookies to understand usage of the Web site and to improve the content and offerings on our Web site.
