  • By you, when you permit us to share your personal health story that you submit through the Site, or through other feature of the Site to which you are able to post information and materials.  Please note that any information and materials that you post or disclose through these services may become public information and may be available to visitors to the Site and to the general public.  We urge you to be very careful when deciding to disclose your Personal Information, or any other information, on the Site.
  • To a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or stock (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings).

Security of your information
Medicines360 is committed to protecting the security of your Personal Information.  We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to help protect your Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.  Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the “Contacting Us” section below.  Medicines360 makes no representation or warranty to the security of your Personal Information that you disclose on third party social media platforms.  The security of your Personal Information on such platforms is governed by the Terms of Use and/or Privacy Policies of those platforms.

What Other Information do we collect? “Other Information” is any information that does not reveal your specific identity or does not directly relate to an individual, such as:

  • Browser information
  • Server log files
  • Information collected through cookies, pixel tags and other technologies
  • Demographic information and other information provided by you
  • Aggregated information

How do we collect Other Information?
We and our third party service providers may collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:

  • Through your browser:  Certain information is collected by most browsers, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system version and Internet browser type and version.
  • Through server log files:  An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), and is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user visits the Site, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited.  We use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating Site usage levels, helping diagnose server problems, and administering the Site.
  • Using cookies:  Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider stores to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser, if you allow that enables the sites or service providers systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.  We and our third-party service providers use cookies and other technologies to, among other things, better serve you with more tailored information and facilitate your ongoing access to and use of the Site, as well as for online tracking purposes.  If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies via your browser settings. Like most websites, if you turn your cookies off, some of our services may not function properly.
  • Using Local Stored Objects:   We and our third-party service providers may use Flash Local Storage Objects (“Flash LSOs”) in certain situations, including to recognize you. Flash LSOs are different from browser cookies because of the amount and type of data stored.  In addition, you generally cannot control, delete or disable the acceptance of Flash LSOs from your browser.  For more information on Flash LSOs, and to learn how to control them, click on the support Page for the Flash Player, choose Global Storage Settings Panel and follow the instructions.  To see the Flash LSOs on your computer now, go to the Website Storage Settings Panel and follow the instructions to review and, if you choose, to delete any specific Flash LSO.  Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash LSOs may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with the Site or our online content.
  • Using pixel tags and other similar technologies:  Pixel tags (also known as web beacons and clear GIFs) may be used in connection with some Site pages and HTML-formatted email messages to, among other things, track the actions of Site users and email recipients, measure the success of our marketing campaigns and compile statistics about Site usage and response rates.
  • From you:  We may collect demographic information such as your location, as well as other information, such as your preferred means of communication, when you voluntarily provide this information to us.  Unless combined with Personal Information, this information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site.
  • By aggregating information:  We may aggregate Personal Information so that the end product does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site, for example, by using Personal Information to calculate the percentage of our users who have a particular telephone area code.  Aggregated Personal Information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site.

How we use and disclose Other Information
Because Other Information does not personally identify you, we may use and disclose Other Information for any purpose.  In some instances, we may combine Other Information with Personal Information (such as combining your name with your state of residence).  If we combine any Other Information with Personal Information, the combined information will be treated by us as Personal Information as long as it is combined.

Donations and payments
We use a third-party service provider (the “Third Party Payment Service”) to handle donations made by credit card and other payment transactions submitted to our Site. If you wish to make a donation through the Site, you will be directed to a webpage that is hosted by the Payment Service (or its service providers) and not by us (the “Third Party Payment Service Page”). Any Personal Information that you provide through the Third Party Payment Service Page will be collected by the Third Party Payment Service rather than by us, and will be subject to the Third Party Payment Service’s privacy policy rather than this Policy.  Please note that this policy does not address the collection and use of information through the Third Party Payment Service Page or the privacy or information practices of the Third Party Payment Service.  We have no control over, and shall not be responsible for, the Third Party Payment Service’s use of information collected through the Third Party Payment Service Page.

Your choices regarding our use and disclosure of your Personal Information We give you many choices regarding our use and disclosure of your Personal Information for marketing purposes.  You may opt out from:

  • Receiving marketing-related emails from us:  If you no longer want to receive marketing-related emails from us on a going-forward basis, you may opt out of receiving these marketing-related emails by following the instructions included in email communications from us.
  • Our sharing of your Personal Information with affiliates for their marketing purposes:  If you would prefer that we do not share your Personal Information on a going-forward basis with our affiliates for their marketing purposes, you may opt out of this sharing by notifying us sending us a written statement to: Medicines360 Website, 353 Sacramento St. STE 300 San Francisco, California 94111 USA or in our last email communication you received from us select the opt out box, located at the end of the email.

We will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable.  Please note that if you opt out as described above, we will not be able to remove your Personal Information from the databases of third parties with which we have already shared your Personal Information (i.e., to which we have already provided your Personal Information as of the date that we implement your opt-out request).  Please also note that if you do opt out of receiving marketing-related messages from us, we may still send important administrative messages to you, and you cannot opt out from receiving administrative messages.

How you may access or change your Personal Information
If you would like to review or update your Personal Information that has been previously provided to us, you may contact us by mail at Medicines360 Website, 353 Sacramento St. STE 300 San Francisco, California 94111 USA.  In your request, please make clear what information you would like to have changed.  We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable.  We are not responsible for changing information from the databases of third parties.

Third-party links
Occasionally, we may link to the websites of third parties on our Site.  This Privacy Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any site to which this Site contains a link.  The inclusion of a link on the Site does not imply endorsement of the linked site by us or by our affiliates.

Use of site by minors

Jurisdictional issues
