  1. The Information Collected

At the Website, you can subscribe to one of our services (e.g., our online information services or our E-Newsletter), express an opinion, and connect to third-party web sites to order services and products. We collect PII that you provide to us. The types of PII that may be collected on the Website 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. At times, we might request you provide to us your age or gender. We also may collect information you provide as part of a User Submission (as defined in our Terms of Use). All of this information is referred to in this Privacy Policy as “PII.”

Our servers also may automatically collect information about you, your online behavior and your computer, mobile or other device. The information collected may include, without limitation, the make, model, settings, specifications (e.g., CPU speed, connection speed, browser type, operating system, device identifier) and geographic location of you and/or your computer, mobile or other device, as well as date/time stamp, IP address, pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, ads (if any) viewed, the site(s), application(s), destination(s), and/or service(s) you arrived from, and other clickstream data.

For example, some social networking services allow you to push content from our Website to your contacts. Your decision to use a social networking service in connection with our Website is voluntary. However, you should make sure you are comfortable with the information your third party social networking services may make available to our Website by visiting those services’ privacy policies and/or modifying your privacy settings directly with those services. We reserve the right to use, transfer, assign, sell, share, and provide access to all PII and other information about you and your computer, mobile or other device that we receive through third-party social networking services in the same ways described in this Privacy Policy in respect of all of your other information.

“Do Not Track” Technology – Some newer web browsers have a “Do Not Track” preference that transmits a “Do Not Track” header to the websites you visit with information indicating that you do not want your activity to be tracked. We currently do not respond to browser “Do Not Track” signals.

However, some third party websites (which may include websites you access through links on the Website) do keep track of your browsing activities. If you are visiting such websites, you can set your preferences in your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. You can enable or disable DNT by visiting the preferences or settings page of your web browser. Your use of third party websites including through links on the Website makes you subject to the terms of use and privacy policies of such other websites.

  1. Use of the Information

We may use the information we collect about you, your online behavior and your computer, mobile or other device to improve the design and content of the Website 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. In addition, we reserve the right to use this information, which may at times be able to identify you, for any lawful business purpose, including without limitation to help diagnose problems with our servers, to gather broad demographic information, analyze trends, track users’ movements around the Website, and to otherwise administer the Website. In addition to all of the foregoing, we reserve the right to use, transfer, sell, and share aggregated, anonymous data about our users as a group for any lawful business purpose, such as analyzing usage trends and seeking compatible advertisers, sponsors, and customers.

If you are under the age of 18, do not, under any circumstance, submit any PII to us. By accepting the Terms of Use for the Website, you confirm that you are 18 years of age or older and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmation, representations and warranties set forth therein, and to abide by and comply with the Terms of Use and any applicable laws, statutes, ordinances, rules and regulations, including, without limitation, privacy laws, intellectual property laws, internet and anti-spam laws, and other applicable general business laws or regulatory requirements.

  1. Cookies and Other Technologies

The Service may place and/or store code or other types of information and/or devices (e.g., “cookies”) on your computer, mobile or other device (“Local Device Storage”). We may use Local Device Storage for any lawful business purpose, including without limitation to customize your visitation and shopping experience, to deliver content consistent with your stated interests, to provide you with custom-tailored content, to save your password in password-protected areas, to determine which of our messages have been opened by recipients so we can gauge the effectiveness of marketing campaigns, to control the display of ads, to track usage patterns, the movements of individual users, and your geographic location, to help diagnose problems with our servers, to gather broad demographic information, to analyze trends, to conduct research, to deliver editorial content, to record registration and personalization information, and to otherwise administer the Website. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you would prefer, you may be able to set yours to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent. However, it is possible that some parts of the Website, 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 PII unless you choose to provide this information to us. However, once you choose to furnish the Website with PII, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.

In addition to Local Device Storage, we may use web beacons, also known as clear gifs, pixel tags, or web bugs (collectively, together with Local Device Storage, the “Tracking Technologies”). We may use Tracking Technologies for many of the purposes described above, in addition to allowing our service providers to track visitor traffic and actions on our Website. Third party service providers, including Facebook, may use Tracking Technologies to collect or receive information from our Website and elsewhere on the internet and use that information to provide measurement services and targeted advertisements.

  1. Security

We take precautions and have implemented certain technical measures intended to protect against unauthorized access to, loss of, disclosure of, and unlawful interception of PII submitted via the Website. We also limit internal access to PII to a select list of our personnel on a “need-to-know” basis. However, because no data transmission is completely secure, and no system of physical or electronic security is impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of the information you send to us or the security of our servers, networks or databases. Your communications containing PII may be unlawfully intercepted or accessed by third parties and/or the Website may be subject to network attacks or malfunctions. Accordingly, we cannot and do not guarantee that your PII or any other information is completely secure and safe from any risk, and you provide information to us at your sole risk. By using the Website you agree that we are not responsible for any inadvertent loss of such information or the consequences thereof.

  1. Links to/from Other Sites

The Website shall comply with any state privacy laws with respect to collection of personal information, including, but not limited to, the California Shine the Light Law.
