“Personal Information” is information that is personally identifiable like names, addresses, e-mail addresses, or phone numbers, as well as other non-public information that is associated with the foregoing.
“Anonymous Information” means information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information; Anonymous Information does not permit the identification of individual persons.
Your Personal Information may be processed by us in the country where it was collected as well as other countries (including the United States) where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country.
We collect the following Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily:
- If you want to use some of the mobile features of the clear.md Services, we will ask for your first name and last name.
- We may also collect your email address or other contact information to send you notifications regarding products and services available on the Site.
- When you contact us by sending us an e-mail, text message, or when you use any of our contact forms, we may collect any information that is contained in your e-mail, text message, or that you enter into such forms, as well as any information you provide to the extent necessary to provide the Services.
- When you answer questions or submit feedback to Content such as videos that you view on the Site
Any information that you post to the Site is deemed public and may be shared without any restriction.
Personal Information Collected Via Technology
As you use or access the clear.md Site and use the Services, certain information may also be collected, including your Internet protocol (IP) address and the browser that you use to visit the Site. The Services create a log file of the IP addresses of the visitors and users of the Services. clear.md also stores a small text file called a “Cookie” on your computer to store your login information and your personal preferences for the clear.md Services. clear.md may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). While you will still be able to use the Services if you disable Cookies in your browser, certain parts of the Services may not function as effectively. You must have Cookies enabled in your web browser to use the clear.md Services.
Use Of Information We Collect
In general, Personal Information you voluntarily submit to us is used by us to provide the clear.md Services to you, to respond to requests that you make, to improve our clear.md Services and to better tailor the features, performance and support of the clear.md Services, and/or to offer you additional information, opportunities, and functionality.
We may also use your Personal Information to provide you with notifications related to your use of the Services (including notifications we may send to your mobile phone), or with promotional e-mails, should you request to receive such communications from us. We do not provide or disclose your Personal Information to any of the health care providers that have Content on our Site.
We may create Anonymous Information records from Personal Information by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the information personally identifiable to you. We may use this Anonymous Information for internal purposes, such as analyzing usage patterns so that we may enhance our clear.md Services, and we also reserve the right to use and disclose any Anonymous Information at our discretion.
clear.md may collect Anonymous Information or demographic data, such as date of birth, gender, and zip code. When such data is not combined with personally identifiable information (“PII”), such information is considered to be non-personally identifiable, as it does not personally identify you or any other user of the clear.md Services or Site. Additionally we may aggregate PII in a manner such that the resulting aggregate information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site, for example, by using PII to display content according to your zip code. Such aggregate information is considered non-personally identifiable. Because non-personally identifiable information does not personally identify you, we may use such information for any purpose. For example, we may use this information for clear.md internal use to enhance web security, to detect broad demographic trends, to assist clear.md in providing content on the Site tailored to your interests, and to otherwise enhance your experience on this Site. This information may also be shared with third parties on an aggregate and non-personally identifiable basis.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We may provide your Personal Information to third party service providers and suppliers who work on behalf of or with us to provide some of the services and features of the clear.md Services. Examples of such services include sending e-mail or messages to your mobile phone and providing customer service. However, these service providers and suppliers do not have any independent right to use this information except as necessary to help us in providing the Services, but they may have the same rights to disclose such information as clear.md has under this section “Disclosure of Personal Information”.
