(1) Non-Personally Identifiable Information
As a general policy, no personal information is required to be collected from visitors to this site. However, certain non-personal visitor information is recorded by the standard operation of AACP’s servers. This information is primarily used to provide an enhanced on-line experience for the visitor. Information tracked includes the type of browser being used by the visitor (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system (e.g., Macintosh, Windows) being used by the visitor and the domain name of the visitor’s Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Netcom). By having this information, AACP is able to optimize its Web pages automatically for each particular visitor. Other uses of this information include tracking the number of visitors to the site (but visitors are tracked only in an aggregate and non-personally-identifiable form).
(3) Limited Personally Identifiable Information
As previously stated, in almost all activities, the information we collect is non-personal (such as first name only, age, and state). If you enter a contest, send us a question or send an electronic postcard, we will also ask for an e-mail address. Our use of e-mail addresses is further described in the examples below. We only collect enough information from our visitors to make activities on Pharmacyforme.org fun and interesting.
If you submit stories, artwork, comments, or anything else to us that is posted on our site, you will be identified on our site only by first name, age, city and state.
No one will be excluded from our site for not giving us personal information. When we do ask for personal information (like an e-mail address) as part of an activity, we will only use it for that activity and keep it only until that particular activity is complete. For example:
If you send us an e-mail with a question or comment, or enter one of our contests, we will respond using the e-mail address you supply, but we will not keep the address or use it again for any other purpose.
If you ask Pharmacy is Right for Me to send an electronic postcard or e-mail message, we will ask for your first name and e-mail address as well as the e-mail address of the person who will receive the postcard. We will only use this information to send the postcard or message to the person you specify and we will delete the information when the postcard or message has been sent.
We will only share any personal information that you provide with third parties third parties who: (1) are engaged by us to maintain the technical functioning of our website or web service, or to fulfill a request made by a user; (2) are restricted in their access and use of personal information only to the extent necessary to maintain the technical functioning of the website or web service, or to fulfill a request made by a user; and (3) have promised to keep the personal information that they access confidential.
If we sell all or part of our business or make a sale or transfer of our assets or are otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, we may transfer personally identifiable information to a third party as part of that transaction, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
