About Collecting Information
What Information Do We Collect?
We usually collect information from you when you respond to a survey or fill out a form on the Mesothelioma Guide website.
When ordering or registering on our site to receive information, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number and/or medical diagnosis. You may, however, visit our site anonymously and you do not need to submit this information to utilize the features on our site.
What Do We Use Your Information For?
Any of the information we collect from you may be used to:
- Personalize your experience (your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs)
- Improve our website (we continually strive to enhance our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive)
- Improve customer service (your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs)
- Process transactions
- Send periodic emails
Your personal information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the purchased product or service requested.
The email address you provide may be used to send you information or respond to inquiries and requests.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
We utilize a variety of security measures to keep your personal information safe.
Cookies and Disclosures
Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser. These files enable the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.
If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies via your browser settings. Like most websites, if you turn your cookies off, some of our services may not function properly. However, you can still speak to someone by phone or email.
Do We Disclose Any Information to Outside Parties?
We do not sell, trade transfer or in any way send your personally identifiable information to outside, non-trusted parties. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. These third parties must comply with ensuring the safety of your information. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.
We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.
Links and Protection Compliance
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include links to third-party websites or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site, wish to improve your experience when visiting our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
Because we value your privacy, we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We therefore will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
We are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act). We do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. Our website, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old.
