Your privacy is important to us. This describes how collects information, why we collect this information, how we will use or disclose it, how we protect it, and how you can update or delete personally identifiable information, if collected. In addition, this portion of the Agreement (see Conditions of Use) sets forth our general policies on security.

IP Addresses

There are several types of information we collect. For all visitors to the Service, we collect and log your IP address. An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the internet. IP addresses allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with one another. We collect IP address information to properly administer our system and to gather aggregate information on visitors to our site and how our site is being used, including the pages visitors are viewing. This aggregate information may be shared with advertisers, sponsors and others businesses. To maintain your anonymity, we do not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information. We will use IP address information, however, to personally identify you in order to enforce our legal rights or when required to do so by law enforcement authorities.


At present we do NOT, but in future may place small data files, called "cookies," in the browser file of your computer's hard drive. These cookies automatically identify your browser to our server whenever you interact with the Service. Most browsers automatically accept these cookies, but you usually can change your browser setting to prevent the acceptance of cookies. In addition, we usually collect the domain name of the server from which you are visiting. This can provide us with information relating to the sources of our traffic. Collecting this information would NOT allow us to personally identify you.

Registration, Health Risk Assessment and Disease Management Information

At present we do not, but may in future collect personal information that you choose to share with us such as e-mail addresses and your answers to questions. This information is only collected with your permission and, as explained below, may be updated or deleted by you at any time. If we collect this information, should you decide to provide it to us, we will use it to tailor the Service to your personal health interests and needs. For example, so we can notify you when a new article or other information becomes available on a topic of specific interest to you on the Service. 


At times, we may asked you to complete survey questions on the Service. If you participate, you will be asked to review and accept certain additional terms and conditions relating to use of the information you furnish, which may include

These will be clearly described in the survey description.
