IMPORTANT - READ CAREFULLY:
The Information We Gather
The Sites collect and/or store personal information when you voluntarily provide such information. The types of personal information that may be collected include, without limitation, your full name, e-mail address, phone number, and location of residence. Additional information may also be collected from you if you choose to submit a form through the site or purchase a product or service or interact with social media accounts associated with the Sites. Do not submit information to the Sites if you do not want us to collect or use your personal information.

Please understand that 1) if you choose to voluntarily make your personal information viewable by third-parties online (such as through social media postings, blog comments, or email communication), 2) if you share a computer with someone else, or 3) if you are using a computer in a public place where others may have access to it this information can be seen, used, or collected by other parties outside of those affiliated with the site. We are not responsible for any third-party unauthorized use of your publicly displayed information.
As you use the Sites and Services, certain information may also be passively collected through technologies like cookies, web beacons and IP addresses. By knowing about you, we can provide more helpful information, programs, services, products and affiliate offers.
Cookies, Web Beacons and IP Addresses
We may also use “web beacons” (which are usually small, transparent graphic images) and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URL) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit, the features and information for which you searched and viewed, or the email you opened. This type of information is collected to make the Sites and Services more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.
An “Internet protocol address” or “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We, or our service providers, may track your IP Address when you access the Sites or Services to assist with delivering geographically targeted advertisements.
Use of Personal Information
We may use the personal information you provide to: respond to inquiries made through the Sites forms, fulfill your requests for communication or information, products or services (including our email newsletter), and to communicate with you about additional services, products, affiliate offers and educational information that we believe may be of interest to you.
Your personal information will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any third-parties for any reason whatsoever without your consent. This does not include our agents, successors, or assigns or persons or entities that assist us in the operations of our business and site, including, but not limited to our email service providers, who have agreed to keep this information confidential.
We may provide your personal information to third-party service providers who work on our behalf or help us to operate our business, the Sites, the Products and the Services. Examples of such service providers include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, and/or content for sending email, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing payments (including credit card payments), and providing customer service. Access to your personal information by these service providers is limited to the information reasonably necessary to perform its limited function. These service providers have an obligation under their contracts with us to keep your personal information confidential.
There may be other instances where we may need to share your personal information in order to protect ourselves, such as instances of suspected copyright or intellectual property infringement, or as required by law, such as in response to a legal process, order, or investigation.
Protecting Your Information
Keeping your personal information secure and private is of high-importance to us. We make every effort to maintain the security and privacy of your personal information through electronic, physical, and organization procedures. We employ reasonable and current security methods to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of information. We use secure server software (SSL) to process all financial transactions that occur on the Sites.
But, please understand that no exchange of information online can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. You acknowledge that you are using a third-party connection and communication system, and we take no responsibility for such a third-party system or the exchange of your information through such a third-party system. You acknowledge that you provide personal information to us at your own risk. You agree to release any and all claims related to or arising out of our exchange and collection of your personal information.
Third Party Websites
In some instances, we have included links on the Sites to third-party sites for your information, reference, and use. The privacy policies on these sites may differ from our own, and we are not responsible for your use of these sites or the privacy practices of these third-parties. We encourage you to read those policies before using such third-party sites.
Providing links to third-party sites does not necessarily serve as an endorsement or approval of the content of these sites nor does it necessarily establish that we have any affiliation with them. You assume all risk arising from your use of these third-party sites and any information, services, or products they provide.
With our prior permission, third-parties may also reference or link back to the Site, at the sole discretion of Dr. Deborah Anderson.

We may make message boards, chat rooms, social media accounts or groups, and other interactive forums available as part of the Services. You should be aware that any information which you post to these interactive forums or otherwise choose to make publicly available, including your personal information, may be disclosed and available to all users who have access to that portion of the Sites or Services, and is therefore no longer private. By using these interactive forums, you agree that we are not responsible for any information that you disclose or communicate in such forums, and any disclosures you make are at your own risk.
