14. Integration and Incorporation
1. Information Collection and Use
When you use the Services, you provide information to us. My Dietitian collects two types of information: (1) information that you provide that lets us know who you are (“Personally Identifiable Information”) and (2) information that does not by itself identify a specific individual (“Non-personally Identifiable Information”).
2. Personally Identifiable Information
3. Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We automatically receive and collect Non-personally Identifiable Information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just came from, which URL you next go to, browser type, browser language, date and time of your query, My Dietitian cookie information, and the pages you request. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. We may use third-party analytics services to collect, monitor and analyze the information collected as described above.
4. Use of Information
We will use Non-personally Identifiable Information to diagnose problems with our servers and software, to administer the Services, and to gather demographic information. Our third-party advertising networks and servers will also supply reports that will inform us how many ads were presented and clicked upon on www.mydietitian.com in a manner that does not identify personally any individual.
We may also use “pixel tags,” which are small graphic files that allow us to monitor the use of the Services. A pixel tag can collect information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the tag appears; the URL of the page on which the pixel tag appears; the time (and length of time) the page containing the pixel tag was viewed; the type of browser that retrieved the pixel tag; and the identification number of any cookie previously placed by that server on your computer. We may use pixel tags, either provided by us or by our third party advertisers and ad networks, to collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with our sites and Services and use them in combination with our cookies to provide offers and information of interest to you.
We also may allow certain analytic services and providers of applications used on the Services (e.g. sharing buttons) to collect Non-Personally Identifiable information by placing cookies on the Services that will track certain performance of our Services, such as, web traffic, click-throughs, etc., in order to assist us and our service providers in better understanding the interests of our users and to better serve those interests.
We may use other companies under separate agreements to supply advertisements when you visit and use our Services. These companies may collect and use Non-Personally Identifiable Information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your access to our Services and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie, a third party web beacon and/or pixel tags to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice in general and the options that you have, including your option or to opt out of this type of advertising, you can visit www.networkadvertising.org. These cookies, web beacons and pixel tags do not collect any personal information from your computer, such as your e-mail address. Other companies’ use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to My Dietitian’s cookies.
7. Targeted Advertising By My Dietitian
In order to serve offers and advertisements that may be interest to our users, we may display targeted advertisements on the Services based on Personally Identifiable Information provided by our users, including zip code and profile. We do not provide this Personally Identifiable Information to our advertisers when you interact with such an advertisement. However, please note that the advertisers (including ad serving companies) may determine based on their own analysis that a user who interacts with an advertisement targeted by My Dietitian may fit into a certain demographical category; for example, an advertiser may determine that men ages 25-34 are interacting with a certain advertisement on My Dietitian from a particular geographic area. You acknowledge that any information collected by such advertisers or advertising networks – and any options that you have with the use of such information – would be handled in accordance with the disclosures provided above in the “Advertising” section.
8. Information Sharing and Disclosure
My Dietitian does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies except to provide products or services you’ve requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances: We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with My Dietitian under confidentiality agreements. These trusted partners include companies with which My Dietitian may operate co-branded websites or web-pages to expand their services using My Dietitian’s Services. These trusted partners may use your personal information to provide services to you on our behalf, evaluate the effectiveness of the services, and to help My Dietitian communicate with you about offers from My Dietitian and our marketing partners. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information. We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
The sites displayed as search results or linked to by the Services are developed by people over whom My Dietitian exercises no control. These other sites may place their own cookies on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information. My Dietitian may present links in a format that enables us to understand whether they have been followed. We use this information to understand and improve the quality of My Dietitian’s search technology. For instance, this data helps us determine how often users are satisfied with the first result of a query and how often they proceed to later results.
9. Your Ability to Edit and Delete Your Account Information and Preferences
You can delete your My Dietitian registered account by requesting an account deletion via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You must provide us with the email address of the registered account. After we have confirmed your request via email, we will remove access to your personal information from our user database.
10. Confidentiality and Security
We limit access to personal information about you to our employees and agents who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use many tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private. Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services.
11. Third Parties
My Dietitian is intended for general audiences. My Dietitian does not collect or maintain information from those that My Dietitian knows are under 13, and no part of the My Dietitian Services are targeted to attract anyone under 13.
13. California Users
If you are a California resident, in addition to the rights set forth above, you have the right to request information from us regarding the manner in which we share certain categories of your personal information with third parties, for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. California law provides that you have the right to submit a request to us at the designated address and receive the following information: the categories of information we disclosed to third parties for the third parties direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year, the names and addresses of third parties that received such information, and if the nature of a third party’s business cannot be reasonably determined from the third party’s name, examples of the products or services marketed. You are entitled to receive a copy of this information in a standardized format and the information will not be specific to you individually. Our designated email address for such requests is email@example.com.
