1. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
2. HOW DO WE USE INFORMATION GATHERED ON THE SITE
Neither TH, nor our third-party vendors acting on our behalf to help deliver the services and operate the Site, will willfully disclose any personally identifiable information about our online users to any non-affiliated third party without first receiving the user's permission, unless required by law. TH’s affiliates include our local productions (such as Smart Talk and Health Smart), PBS, and other public broadcasting stations or programming. In terms of our own use of information, we may use your personally identifiable information for the activities described in the previous sections, for the activities described when you submitted the information, or for internal and marketing promotional purposes as further described in this policy. We will typically explain the extent of use at the time you are asked to provide personal information. If you do not want this information to be collected or used by us for these purposes, you can simply “opt out.” Under certain circumstances, opting out may prevent your participation in activities for which personal information is needed, as in contests.
3. SECURITY OF INFORMATION
TH has in place what we believe to be appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Credit card information provided on the Site is protected against unauthorized use by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security features. The SSL protocol is the industry standard method for creating an encrypted, secure connection between your web browser and a web server, such as the Site’s server. You should, however, keep in mind that no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free. Because most e-mail is not encrypted, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.
4. CHILDREN’S GUIDELINES
Transforminghealth.org is a general audience site and does not knowingly collect or store personally identifiable information about children under the age of 13.
5. CORRECTIONS TO PERSONAL DATA; OPTING OUT
Please contact us at via email email@example.com to a) correct or update any personal information in the TH database that you state is erroneous, b) opt-out of future communications from TH, or c) request TH to make reasonable efforts to remove your personal information from the TH online database, thereby canceling your profile, newsletter registration and other TH registrations. This will not necessarily remove previous public comments and other User Materials submitted for public display on the Site. You should understand that it may be impossible to delete personal information entirely because of backups and records of deletions.
