We make money off your clicks on the advertisement links. These blogs also reference several products or services as commentary. When appropriate, these products and services are registered trademarks of their respective companies. We are in no way speaking for or on behalf of these third-party companies referenced in the body of the blogs, and we do not imply endorsement by these third-party companies.
We will post changes to our policy here so that you will know what information we gather, how we might use it, and whether we disclose it to anyone. Please refer back to this policy regularly.
Personally identifiable information: If you identify yourself to us by using our About & Contact Us page or by sending us e-mail with questions or comments, we may use your personal information to respond to your questions or comments. We may file your comments for future reference, or we may discard the information after we have reviewed it. We will not sell, rent, or otherwise distribute your e-mail address to any outside entity or organization.
Please note that if you give out personal information online — through the Site’s forum or feedback — that information can be collected and used by visitors to our Site. Although we strive to protect our users' privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of information you post in these forums. You disclose such information at your own risk.
Non-personally identifiable information and the use of cookie technology: It is necessary for the Site to function that we collect non-personally identifiable information through the use of "cookie" technology. Non-personally identifiable information might include the browser you use, the type of computer, smart phone, or other device you are using, your operating system, your Internet service provider, and other similar information. These can be disabled by changing your browser settings. But the Site may not work without them.

Security policy: Protecting your privacy and your information is a top priority. We have taken careful measures to secure your information. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your personal computer or other device to our servers. Our secure server software encrypts information, ensuring that all Internet transactions with our Site remain private (unless sent by an unsecured means, such as e-mail). Submitting a message through our About & Contact Us page is fully encrypted and secure.
Please remember that you, too, must use care to ensure the security of your personal information. Once available, you must be responsible for making sure that no one else can learn your password or other log-in information, or otherwise make use of these to access the secure registered user website. We cannot protect your personal computer or other device from unauthorized access, and our systems cannot see past your login and password to verify that the person using that information is really you.
If you use a public computer, such as a computer provided at a public library or any other shared computer, or use public Wifi Hotspots, always log out of the secure registered user website or other password-protected portions of our Site where you have been viewing health information.
If you access this Site through your employer's computer network, we encourage you to review your employer's policy on Internet usage and/or confidentiality and security policy. Although we have taken strong measures to ensure the privacy of your personal information, we cannot control the monitoring activities that may be conducted by your employer.
