This is the internet privacy statement of the Consumer's Health Information Center, Inc. ("CHIC"). This statement discloses the privacy practices for www.healthguideusa.org(the "Website").
Information Collection and Use: The Consumer's Health Information Center, Inc. is the sole owner of any information collected on the Website. CHIC will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways other than those outlined in this statement. Personal information provided by users will be used by CHIC to improve the site and to provide a more personalized experience for the user. Any information which identifies a specific individual will not be disclosed to other parties without the user's permission unless necessary to provide services which the user has requested.
Registration: General use of the Website does not require registration or the disclosure of any personal information. However, additional or special services may, from time to time, be offered on the Website and access to such services may require registration and the submission of personal information. To use these additional or special services a user may be required to provide us with certain mandatory personal data (such as name and email address). This information will be used to communicate with the user about the requested service. Certain optional demographic data (such as gender or income level) may also be requested and we would encourage users to provide such information in order to give a user a more personalized experience on the Website.
Log Files: We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Website, track users' movement, and gather broad information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Links: The Website contains links to other websites on the World Wide Web. Please be aware that CHIC is not responsible for the privacy practices of any other such sites. This privacy statement applies exclusively to the Website (www.healthguideusa.org). It is the sole responsibility of the user to familiarize themselves with the privacy practices of any other website they utilize.
Revising Personal Information and/or Registered Services: If a registered user's personal information changes (such as an email address), we will make a best effort to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data from our records. Registered users will also be given the opportunity to "unsubscribe" from a registered service (such as email newsletters). Users of the Website are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that may require an outside party.
Site and Service Updates: Registered users may periodically receive email service and/or site announcement updates. Because these announcements contain important information about the Website and the services contained therein, registered users are not able to unsubscribe from service and/or site announcement updates.
