Privacy Policy

Posted on Nov. 10, 2003, 3:07 p.m. in
  • Your privacy on the Internet is important to WorldHealth.net.
  • We do not share, rent or sell our lists!
  • What Information You Provide is Always Private.

Member-Provided Information: As part of the WorldHealth.net Member registration process, a prospective member is asked to provide an email address and interest category selections. The prospective member, at his or her option, may voluntarily provide additional information, including personal, geographic and demographic information. WorldHealth.net uses this data to assemble broad demographic information about WorldHealth.net Members in general. The primary purpose of this data collection is to ensure that WorldHealth.net Members receive relevant, targeted offers and information from WorldHealth.net.

Web Traffic Information: WorldHealth.net also collects and monitors incoming and outgoing Web site traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers and to administer its Web site.

"Contact Us" Information: WorldHealth.net uses "contact us" forms as a way for WorldHealth.net Customers, potential customers and WorldHealth.net Members to communicate with WorldHealth.net. WorldHealth.net collects the information supplied by the sender of the "contact us" form in order to establish and maintain relationships with Customers, potential customers and WorldHealth.net Members. WorldHealth.net also uses email links located on various pages of the WorldHealth.net Web site to allow you to contact WorldHealth.net with questions or comments you may have. WorldHealth.net welcomes these email communications and makes efforts to respond to these communications where appropriate. Email communications and the ideas sent to WorldHealth.net in these email communications become the property of WorldHealth.net. WorldHealth.net uses the email communications to evaluate and improve its services and Web site. WorldHealth.net also may save these email communications as an archive to address Member questions and concerns, for auditing purposes and to ensure privacy compliance with third-party Internet Service Providers.

The Use of Cookies and Clear GIFs
As an important and necessary part of providing customizable and personalized services to our WorldHealth.net Members, WorldHealth.net uses cookies and Clear GIFs to store and sometimes track information about you. A cookie or Clear GIF is a small amount of data that is sent to a Member's browser from a Web server and stored on your computer hard drive. Areas of WorldHealth.net's Web site where WorldHealth.net Members are prompted to log in or that are customizable require acceptance of cookies and Clear GIFs. Cookies and Clear GIFs are also used to help WorldHealth.net track the response to messages sent to Members on behalf of Customers so that WorldHealth.net can monitor and report campaign results to the Customer and track response history. With respect to cookies and Clear GIFs, you have a choice. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies and Clear GIFs, to be notified when a cookie or Clear GIF is set, or to reject all cookies and Clear GIFs. If you choose to reject all cookies and Clear GIFs, you will be unable to use those WorldHealth.net services that require the use of cookies or Clear GIFs in order to participate.

Children's Online Privacy Protection
The safety of children is important to us. WorldHealth.net's Web site is a general audience site and is not directed to children under the age of 13. Similarly, WorldHealth.net's services are not directed to nor intended for anyone under the age of 13. WorldHealth.net will not knowingly accept members who are under the age of 13 years, nor will it knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from or about anyone under the age of 13 years. Accordingly, when registering to become a WorldHealth.net Member, the new Member must certify that he or she is not under the age of 13. WorldHealth.net relies on the truthfulness of this certification when accepting new WorldHealth.net Members. In the event that WorldHealth.net receives information that establishes that a Member is under the age of 13 years, WorldHealth.net reserves the right, which it will exercise, to terminate that Member's membership. WorldHealth.net will also delete all information in its databases about that terminated Member. If you believe WorldHealth.net has any information from or about anyone under 13, please use our Contact Us form.

Use and Protection of Member Information
WorldHealth.net uses Member-Provided Information to deliver WorldHealth.net's services. Thus, Member-Provided Information is used by WorldHealth.net in identifying information that may be of interest to WorldHealth.net Members. A WorldHealth.net Member's email address will be used by WorldHealth.net to contact that Member about matters in which WorldHealth.net believes the Member may be interested. WorldHealth.net also uses Member-Provided Information to monitor, interpret, analyze and report campaign results.

In an attempt to customize WorldHealth.net's services and provide Members with the information they may be most interested in, WorldHealth.net also conducts research on WorldHealth.net Members' demographics, interests, and behavior based upon Member-Provided Information and Other Information that WorldHealth.net may collect from third-party sources and/or through the use of "cookies" and/or "Clear GIFs" (see above). WorldHealth.net may combine or otherwise overlay some or all of the foregoing information to build profiles about WorldHealth.net Members, which may be individual-specific or in aggregate form.

By becoming a WorldHealth.net Member, you consent to WorldHealth.net employing the foregoing techniques in its continuing efforts to better serve its Members by providing them with the information in which they may be most interested.

WorldHealth.net undertakes substantial efforts to protect the confidentiality of Member-Provided Information and will never knowingly allow access to this information to anyone outside WorldHealth.net other than to the WorldHealth.net Member or as described in this Privacy Policy. WorldHealth.net uses technology to preserve the anonymity of WorldHealth.net Members while matching the Members' interests with targeted information sent via email. WorldHealth.net has made a substantial investment in its server, database, backup and firewall technologies to protect the information assets of the WorldHealth.net, including the confidentiality of Member-Provided Information . These technologies are deployed as part of a sophisticated security architecture and protocol.

You should also do your part in protecting your information. Your WorldHealth.net user name and password are confidential and we recommend that you not divulge them to anyone. Unfortunately, neither the WorldHealth.net Network nor data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect WorldHealth.net Member-Provided Information, WorldHealth.net cannot ensure or warrant the security of Member-Provided Information. Thus, any information a Member transmits to us is done so at the Member's own risk. Once we receive the Member-Provided Information, WorldHealth.net undertakes substantial efforts to protect the confidentiality of this information consistent with this Policy.
