Some cookies are used to enable certain functions of the Services, and some are used to store your preferences. We may use cookies to remember information that changes the way the Site and Services behave or look. Some of the cookies we use are necessary to enable you to move around the Site and use its features, including accessing secure areas that may contain content for registered users. We may use accounts-related cookies to authenticate users and prevent fraudulent use of user accounts. We may use analytics cookies to track information about how the Site and Products and Services are used so that we can make improvements. We may also use analytics cookies to test new advertisements, pages, features or functionality of the Site and Services to see how our users react to them. In addition, we use web beacons or tracking pixels to count visitor numbers, and performance cookies to track how many individual users access the Site, and how often. This information is used for statistical purposes only and it is not our intention to use such information to personally identify any user. However, if you have registered and signed into the Site, we may combine this information with information from our web analytic services and cookies to analyze how you use the Site in more detail. In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various third-party cookies to report usage statistics of the Site and the Products and Services, deliver advertisements on and through the Site, and so on. Cookies may be used to create profiles of our users, based on the user information we collect, and cookies may enable users’ identification across multiple websites. You can find more detailed information about cookies and how they work at http://www.aboutcookies.org/. Cookies may include session cookies and persistent cookies.

  • Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged into the Site. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and to verify your identity, after you have logged in, as you move through our Site.
  • Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity.
  • Disabling Cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. If you visit our Site and disable cookies, you will be able to browse certain areas of the Site, but some features may not function, you may not be able to store your preferences, and some of our pages may not display properly. Be aware that any preference you have set will be lost if you delete all cookies, including your preference to opt-out from cookies as this itself requires an opt-out cookie to have been set.
  • Your Consent To The Use Of Cookies. By using the Site or purchasing or using any of our Products and Services, and by consenting to the terms of this Policy, you consent to our use of cookies.
  • Third-Party Analytics And Tracking. We use automated devices and applications, such as Google Analytics, to evaluate usage of our Site.

The entities that provide these tools may use cookies and other tracking technologies to perform their services. We do not share your personal information with these third parties.
  • Social Buttons. We use ‘social buttons’ to enable our users to share or bookmark web pages. These are buttons for third-party social media sites, and these sites may log information about your activities on the Internet, including on our Site. Please review the respective terms of use and privacy policies of these third-party sites to understand exactly how they use your information, and to find out how to opt out or to delete such information.
  • External Web Services. We may sometimes use external web services on the Site to display content within the web pages of the Site, for example to display images, show videos or run polls.

  • Tracking Email Communications. We may also use tracking technologies to determine whether you have read, clicked on, or forwarded certain email communications we send to you so that we can make our communications more helpful and interesting. If you do not wish us to confirm whether you have opened, clicked on or forwarded our communications, you will need to unsubscribe, as it is not possible for us to send these emails without tracking enabled.

Do-Not-Track Disclosures

Currently, our systems do not recognize browser “do-not-track” requests.

Third-Party Links

Our Site and materials related to our Products and Services may contain links to third-party websites. Any access to or use of such linked websites is not governed by this Policy, but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third-party websites. We are not responsible for the information practices of such third-party websites. We encourage visitors to such third-party websites to review the privacy statements on each of those other websites before disclosing any personal information.

Protection of Your Personal Information

We use a range of physical, electronic and managerial measures to ensure that we keep your personal data secure, accurate and up to date. These measures include:

  • education and training to relevant staff to ensure they are aware of our privacy obligations when handling personal data
  • administrative and technical controls to restrict access to personal data on a ‘need to know’ basis
  • technological security measures, including fire walls, password protection, encryption and anti-virus software
  • physical security measures.

Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal data, the transmission of data over the Internet (including by e-mail) is never completely secure.  We endeavor to protect personal data, but we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to us or by us.

You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your accounts and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.

What Choices Do You Have Regarding Use of Your Personal Information?

We may send periodic promotional or informational emails to you. You may opt out of such communications by following the opt-out instructions contained in the email. Please note that it may take up to ten (10) business days for us to process opt-out requests. If you opt out of receiving emails about recommendations or other information we think may interest you, we may still send you emails about your account or any Products and Services you have requested or received from us.

Children Under 18

Some of our Products and Services may be designed for use by children under 18. Before we knowingly collect any personal information about a child under 18, whether such information is provided by the child or by the child’s parents, we will provide direct notice to the child’s parents and obtain verifiable parental consent. We will also give parents the choice of consenting to our collection and internal use of the child’s information but prohibiting us from disclosing that information to third parties, unless disclosure is integral to the Site, in which case, this will be made clear to the child’s parents. Following verification of the parents’ identity, we will also provide parents access to their child’s personal information to review, or to have the information deleted. In addition, we will give parents the opportunity to prevent further use or online collection of their child’s personal information. If we are given consent by a child’s parents to release such information to any third parties, we will release the information only to parties that agree to maintain its confidentiality and security. In the event that we collect any personal information about a child under 18, we will retain the information collected for only as long as is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected, and we will delete the information using reasonable measures to protect against its unauthorized access or use.

For more information about our practices concerning personal information collected from children or their parents, please contact us at privacy@alyvemedical.com.
