Ethical Results Ventures Inc. (“Ethical Results“) operates ThisisaHealthBlog.com and may operate other websites. It is Ethical Results’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Ethical Results collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Ethical Results’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Ethical Results’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Ethical Results may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Ethical Results also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on ThisisaHealthBlog.com blogs/sites. Ethical Results only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Information Collected Upon Registration
When you create or reconfigure a ThisisaHealthBlog.com account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. Some of this information for example, your username, is listed publicly on our Services, including on your comments, profile page and search results. Some Services, such as search, public user profiles and viewing lists, do not require registration.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Ethical Results’ websites choose to interact with Ethical Results in ways that require Ethical Results to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Ethical Results gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at ThisisaHealthBlog.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Ethical Results are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Ethical Results collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Ethical Results. Ethical Results does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Ethical Results may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Ethical Results may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Ethical Results does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Ethical Results discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Ethical Results’ behalf or to provide services available at Ethical Results’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Ethical Results’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Ethical Results will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Ethical Results discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Ethical Results believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Ethical Results, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Ethical Results website and have supplied your email address, Ethical Results may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Ethical Results and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Ethical Results takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Ethical Results, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Ethical Results goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Ethical Results may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
