1. COLLECTION AND USE OF YOUR INFORMATION
a. When You Register - When you register for Services directly on the Website, you may be required to provide certain information, such as your name, maiden name (if applicable), mailing address and/or zip code, email address, phone number, birth date or year, marital status, password, and one or more community affiliations (such as with a doctor or facility). You may also be presented with the option to register for the Services using your Facebook login credentials or similar login processes or co-registration forms from or on other third party websites, in which case you will be authorizing us to access certain information from your current profile on Facebook or other third party website (which will be specified in such login process) for purposes of completing your registration. In addition, when you install certain of our applications on Facebook or other third party websites or devices, you will also be registering for the Services by agreeing to such installation, which takes place when you "accept", "install" or "allow" (or similar language) such application. Each such application includes a disclosure that this registration will occur upon the acceptance, installation or allowance of the application. Please keep in mind that, although much of the information described above will not be viewable by other members, once you are registered your name, community affiliations and years associated with those affiliations will be displayed on the Website and you will no longer be anonymous to us or to other individuals who access the Website. In addition, because this information is publicly displayed on the Website, it may be included in the Website "search" tools and on third party websites and devices as described in Section 2(i) below. We may also publicly display your general geographic location based upon the zip code or other geographical information provided to us, as another means of assisting members in finding each other. However, you have the option of opting out of having your general geographic location publicly displayed by accessing your privacy settings on the Website and changing your preferences. In addition, some of our Services may only be accessible if, based on information you have provided to us, you have an affiliation related to our Services.
c. When You "Surf" the Website
If you contact us by phone, email or letter, we may keep a record of such correspondence. Thus, if you report an issue with the Services, we may collect such information in a file specific to your membership account. Moreover, if you contact us through our feedback area, we require your name and email address in order to send you a reply. Additionally, if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the Services, we may keep the information in a file specific to you. l. How We May Supplement Your Information In order for us to provide all of the products and Services that are available to you as a member of the Services, it may be necessary for us from time to time to supplement the information we receive through your use of the Services with information from third party resources. For example, we may obtain updated email address information from email-change-of-address vendors or purchase third party marketing data and address information and add it to our existing database to better target our advertising and provide pertinent offers we think you would be interested in.
2. SHARING YOUR INFORMATION
3. CHANGING, CORRECTING OR REMOVING YOUR INFORMATION
We provide you with ways in which you can update your personal information. To make changes to such information as your name, birth date, mailing address, email address, password and payment information, please login to the Services and go to the "Account" or similar section on the Services. We also provide you with certain privacy settings, which can generally be accessed as described above or within specific features of the Services. In addition, you can go to your profile on the Services, where you can edit various pieces of information or content that you submitted to the Services. If you have questions about updating your information, please visit the Help section on the Services. We will retain your personal information for as long as your membership is in place or as needed to provide you the Services. If you wish to have your membership canceled for any reason, please click here. If you have any problems canceling your membership, please request assistance from Member Care. Upon the cancellation of your membership, we will retain and use your personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
4. COMMUNICATIONS FROM US
As a member of the Services, you will receive our customary business communications (e.g., emails facilitating, completing or confirming your registration, upgrade or other transaction, providing you notice of new or updated products or features, alerting you to member-to-member communications or other member activity relating to your membership, or other administrative messages). We may also send certain "welcome" messages that are informational and provide useful details about your membership or product usage instructions when you sign up for a membership or begin using a particular service. In addition, upon registration you may be automatically enrolled in one or more of our regularly recurring email subscription programs. You may also choose to participate in other email subscription programs that we may make available to you. We also may send you communications regarding special offers or other promotional material for our products or Services or those of our affiliated companies or advertisers. We may send all of these communications to the primary email address that you provide to us, any secondary email address that you may have provided to us if we have determined that your primary email address appears to no longer be valid or otherwise functioning properly, or any email address that we receive as described in Section 1(b) or 1(l). We may also send these communications to your inbox on the Services. While we reserve the right to send you our customary business communications, "welcome" messages and other transactional emails without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them, we do provide you with the opportunity to select whether or not you wish to continue to receive our subscription-based or commercial emails. Each subscription-based email communication from us contains instructions on how you can remove yourself from the mailing list for that specific email subscription program, and each commercial email contains instructions on how you can opt out of receiving further commercial emails from us. Except for school Feed subscription based emails (which contain unsubscribe links within the emails themselves), you can also update your email preferences by logging onto the "Account" section on the Services. Please keep in mind that any changes that you make to your email preferences may take up to ten (10) business days to process and that each subscription-based email and all commercial emails have their own separate opt-out processes. If you have questions about changing your email preferences, please visit the Help section on the Services.
5. THE SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
We have instituted physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to store and maintain your personal information in a secure environment. For example, highly confidential information, such as a credit card or debit card number, is encrypted before being transmitted through the Services. You may also be required to use a password to access certain pages on the Services where certain types of your personal information can be changed or deleted. It is therefore important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password, to emails which we may send you, and to your computer or other device. You take full responsibility for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. Furthermore, while we have implemented safeguards, you should be aware that Internet security technology rapidly changes. We cannot guarantee that the safeguards we employ today can protect your personal information from the threats of tomorrow. You should also be aware that despite our efforts, factors beyond our control may result in disclosure of your personal information. Accordingly, we are not in a position to guarantee that your information will be secure under all circumstances.
6. A NOTE ABOUT INTERNATIONAL USERS
7. A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT THE PRIVACY OF MINORS
Minors (those under 18) are not eligible to use the Services, and we ask that minors not submit any personal information to us or use the Services. We will not knowingly allow minors to become members. If we later learn that a minor is a member, then that minor's membership will be terminated.
