How We Collect Personal Information
As a general rule, no personal information is automatically collected from users of this site. Personally identifiable data about users of this site are known to The Healthinc Web Site only when voluntarily submitted by users of the site. However, certain non-personal information of users (for example, the type of browser being used, the operating system used by the user and the domain name of the user's Internet service provider) is collected. This information is primarily used for internal purposes, but only in an aggregate form (individual users cannot be identified).
Personally identifiable information may be collected from users of this site when users voluntarily provide this information. All such personal information is retained by The Healthinc Web Site and is not sold or otherwise transferred by The Healthinc Web Site unless the express consent to do so has been obtained or if The Healthinc Web Site is required by law or by a court or governmental order to disclose such information in a particular circumstance. This information is used by The Healthinc Web Site to better understand usage patterns and to enhance user enjoyment of this site. Note that only information clearly marked as 'required information' is needed to subscribe to our services. Any other fields are entirely optional and you may fill them in or leave them blank. Required information is essential to fulfil the subscription options of this website and we cannot send requested news and features to those who have not submitted these details. The Healthinc Web Site sometimes uses email addresses and other personally identifiable information to contact users who provide their e-mail addresses for specific purposes. Each communication will contain instructions on how to discontinue receipt of such communications. We do not send such communications to people who have not given us permission to do so. (Submission of your email addresses shall be deemed to constitute permission.)
The Healthinc Web Site will not disclose any personal information except in the following circumstances: · to outsourced service providers who manage user enquiries, mailing systems or website management · where we are required to do so by law. The Healthinc Web Site has taken all reasonable precautions to ensure that the information we hold is accurate, complete and up-to-date. You can help us by advising us of any changes or errors to the information you have submitted (eg, a change of email addresses).
