All of this information is provided to us by you.
Personally Identifiable Information We May Receive From Third Parties
We may now or in the future receive Personally Identifiable Information about you from third parties. For example, if you access our websites or Service through a third-party connection or log-in, for example, through Facebook Connect, by “following,” “liking,” “liking” a particular cause or campaign featured on the Service, etc., that third party may pass certain information about your use of its service to Demystifying the Thyroid.
This information could include, but is not limited to, the user ID associated with your account (for example, your Facebook UID), an access token necessary to access that service, any information that you have permitted the third party to share with us, and any information you have made public in connection with that service.
You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to the Demystifying the Thyroid Service.
We may also make some content, products and services available through our Sites through cooperative relationships with third-party providers, where the brands of our provider partner appear on the Sites in connection with such content, products and/or services.
Third Party Actions
We do not control and are not liable for the actions of any third parties who we may promote. We pride ourselves in working with quality companies, but have no control over the actions of those third parties.
While we are not liable for any of the actions of those third parties, you should feel free to give us feedback from time to time on your experiences with any third parties to whom we work with so that we may enhance our future service to all customers.
Non-Personal Identifying Information
We also collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the Site. For example, we may collect information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which allows us, among other things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic on the Sites.
We also may use a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie” to enhance your experience with the Site. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help us deliver advertisements, identify how many unique users visit us, and track user trends and patterns that we may use to improve users experience with our website, provide website visitors with information tailored to their interests and preferences.
They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Sites where you may have entered preference information before.
We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, including the web pages you visit, your browser add-ons, your browser’s width and height, and other information that assists us in improving the Service.
We may collect and use this analytics information together with your Personally Identifiable Information to build a broader profile of our individual Users so that we can serve you better, to improve the Service and for internal business purposes.
We may disclose this combined information to our third-party business partners in aggregated, anonymized form as described below in the section entitled, “Sharing of Information.”
We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of the Service, including the Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting feature. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit the Service, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to visiting the Service.
We use the information we get from Google Analytics to maintain and improve the Service, and we may share anonymous statistical information from our use of Google Analytics with our business partners for such purposes. Google Analytics collects the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Service, rather than your name or other identifying information.
You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to the Service by disabling cookies on your browser. In addition, if you want to prevent your data from being provided to Google Analytics, you can learn how to opt out using a Google plug-in.
