Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about how your information is collected and used.
Please note that participation in the HedgeHog Health Site is primarily a public activity. Much of the information you post to any HedgeHog Health Sites (whether directly through our site or via links with other social networking websites) is instantly publicly viewable. Therefore, you should not submit any information that you consider confidential. We maintain the privacy of your email address and password provided to us in the registration process (unless you enter such information as your username or in the text of your entries to user areas). Still, other information you provide should be considered nonconfidential and available for viewing by others.
Also, please note that information provided through Facebook or other social networks, or for publication on company pages, mobile apps, or websites may be subject to different privacy policies, which may vary materially from these terms applying to our web sites.
The Information We Collect
Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access and maintain data accuracy, we use industry-standard methods to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. However, you recognize that data transmitted online or stored in a facility where online access is provided cannot be made to be 100% secure. We believe in protecting your information just as we would want our information protected.
In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised as may be required by applicable law.
Please note that the information you enter for your user profile or in your posts may be accessed and viewed publicly. Therefore you should not post information that you consider confidential or do not want to distribute openly. Although in some areas you will have the ability to edit or delete information, please note that even this information may have been cached on servers, cut and pasted, or otherwise incorporated into other posts or for other uses. So once data is posted, you should consider that it may be publicly available perpetually, and in different locations or media than your original submission.
It is our policy to provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business-related purposes, to our users via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through conspicuous posting of such notice on a Hedgehog Health Site, as determined by us in our sole discretion. Notwithstanding the preceding, we reserve the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our users.
Opt-Out, Communication Preferences
You may modify your communication preferences or opt-out from specific communications at any time. Please specify and adjust your preferences in the email communicated to you or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We take all the appropriate steps to protect personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. But, you should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free. In particular, email sent to or from the websites that may not be secure.
We do not offer services to, or target, persons under the age of 13. In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we will purge any information we receive from people we believe to be children under 13 from our database and cancel the corresponding accounts.
How You Can Access or Correct Your Information
You can access your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by logging in and “Editing” your account. Your password is needed to edit this information, even if you are already logged in. We use this procedure to safeguard your information better. You may not be able to edit or delete past entries and data collected regarding previous updates.
To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections. The main form of identity management is your email address. Please always use a valid and up-to-date email address.
Use of User Information
Information you provide to us about yourself or that we collect and infer based upon your entries and interactions with the HedgeHog Health Site may be used to improve your user experience, provide or suggest targeted services, and allow third-party advertisements and messaging to be tailored or targeted. We may use or provide to third parties aggregated data entered by users or inferred from usage. We may collect IP addresses and cookies for the primary purpose of assisting with ease of use by you. However, except as legally required, we will not sell or provide your email address, IP address, cookies, address, or phone number to third parties for advertising or other purposes. In the future, we may provide third parties with the ability to provide customizable or targeted advertising or messages. In such cases, we may allow third-party applications to access your user data in determining the messaging or advertising applicable to you.
Access to your Personal Information. You have a right to access, modify, correct, and request that HedgeHog Health internally delete any Personal Information provided to or obtained by HedgeHog Health. If you update, change or correct any Personal Information, we may keep copies of your Personal Information before such update, modification, or a correction for uses provided for in this Policy. You may update, modify, or correct your Personal Information via your account Preferences. Alternatively, you may contact email@example.com for updates, modifications, and corrections to your Personal Information or request access to your Personal Information.
Retention Of Your Personal Information. You may request the internal deletion of your Personal Information at any time by contacting Hedgehog Health in the manner provided on our site. HedgeHog Health will endeavor to respond to your request promptly. However, the personal information you have published on Facebook or other social channels may remain available even if you request that HedgeHog Health internally deletes such information. Once a request to delete a HedgeHog Health user’s Personal Information is received, it will be removed from our servers within 60 days. You may contact firstname.lastname@example.org to delete your account.
Protection of Your Personal Information. Any Personal Information that you provide to HedgeHog Health will be protected in a commercially reasonable manner.
Notice of Breach of Security. In the event of a security breach that affects you, HedgeHog Health will notify you as soon as possible on both the nature of the violation and the actions taken to address it.
