Privacy Policy

This Policy applies to residents of the United States.

This Privacy Policy explains how we handle the personal information that you provide to us on the web site controlled by The Medicine Stop. This Privacy Policy does not apply to personal information collected from you offline or to residents of countries other than the United States.

Please read this Privacy Policy before using The Medicine Stop site or submitting personal information to us.

How does this Privacy Policy define "personal information"?

"Personal information" means information that identifies you or could reasonably be used to identify you and which is submitted to and/or collected by The Medicine Stop web site and maintained by The Medicine Stop in an accessible form. Examples of personal information include your name, your postal address, and your telephone number.

How does The Medicine Stop collect information online?

The Medicine Stop collects information in two ways:

Personal Information You Submit: The Medicine Stop collects personal information that you enter into data fields on The Medicine Stop website. For example, you may submit your name, postal address, e-mail address, and/or other information in order to receive information about various subjects, register for The Medicine Stop programs, contact The Medicine Stop customer service, or respond to The Medicine Stop surveys. To protect your privacy, you should not provide The Medicine Stop with any information that is not specifically requested.

Passive Collection of Unidentifiable Information: The Medicine Stop Website may collect information about your visits to The Medicine Stop Website without you actively submitting such information. Unidentifiable information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies, Internet tags, and web beacons. Your Internet browser automatically transmits to The Medicine Stop Website some of this unidentifiable information, such as the URL of the Website you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating. Passive information collection technologies can make your use of The Medicine Stop Website easier by allowing The Medicine Stop to provide better service, customize sites based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve The Medicine Stop Website. Certain features of The Medicine Stop Website may not work without use of passive information collection technologies. Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identity you without additional identifiable information.

In what circumstances might The Medicine Stop collect and use personal information?

The Medicine Stop Website may use personal information to respond to your questions and to provide you with efficient customer service. After you have entered personal information into a form or data field on The Medicine Stop Website, The Medicine Stop may use certain identifying technologies to allow that Website to "remember" your personal preferences, such as sections of that Website that you visit frequently and, if you choose, your user ID. We may also use this personal information for other business purposes, such as to offer you the opportunity to receive notices regarding The Medicine Stop products or services, to invite you to participate in surveys about our products, or to notify you about special promotions.

Does The Medicine Stop consolidate personal information?

The Medicine Stop may consolidate the personal information of customers who use The Medicine Stop Website. We use this information to help us better design The Medicine Stop Website and The Medicine Stop products, to communicate information to you, to enhance our marketing and research activities, and to facilitate other business functions.

What choices do I have about how The Medicine Stop collects and uses personal information about me?

You may always limit the amount and type of personal information that The Medicine Stop receives about you by choosing not to enter any personal information into forms or data fields on The Medicine Stop Website. Some of our online services can only be provided to you if you provide us with appropriate personal information. Other parts of The Medicine Stop Websites may ask whether you wish to opt out or opt in to our contact lists for offers, promotions, and additional services that may be of interest to you.

You may also be provided with preference questions or preference boxes allowing you to indicate that you do not want The Medicine Stop Websites to use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to "remember" your personal information, such as user IDs or mailing addresses, on return visits. However, The Medicine Stop Websites that use tracking technologies to collect unidentifiable information do not generally provide you with the ability to opt out of the tracking technologies. Some Internet browsers allow you to limit or disable the use of tracking technologies that collect unidentifiable information.

Who will have access to personal information about me?

Personal information can be accessed by a restricted number of The Medicine Stop employees, by certain companies with which The Medicine Stop may conduct joint programs, and by individuals and entities with whom The Medicine Stop contracts to carry out business activities for The Medicine Stop. We train our employees about the importance of privacy and how to handle and manage customer data appropriately and securely. Also, it is The Medicine Stop practice to notify you if you are registering for a program which is conducted in conjunction with another company that may require access to your personal information. In addition, The Medicine Stop’s practice is to require its contractors to keep your personal information confidential and to use personal information only to perform functions for The Medicine Stop.

Does The Medicine Stop share personal information with third parties?

As a general rule, The Medicine Stop does not share your personal information with third parties unless it is necessary to conduct a joint program. The Medicine Stop will not disclose your personal information to third parties for those third parties’ marketing purposes, unless you have been provided with an opportunity to opt into or opt out of this disclosure. However, if The Medicine Stop sells one of its product lines or divisions, your personal information may be transferred to the buyer so that the buyer can continue to provide you with information and services. If The Medicine Stop provides your personal information to individuals and entities which assist us with our business activities, it is The Medicine Stop’s practice to require those individuals and entities to keep your personal information confidential and to use your personal information only to perform functions for The Medicine Stop. The Medicine Stop reserves the right to disclose your personal information to respond to authorized information requests from government authorities, to address national security situations, or when otherwise required by law.

How does The Medicine Stop secure personal information?

It is The Medicine Stop’s practice to secure each web page that collects personal information; however, the confidentiality of personal information transmitted over the Internet cannot be guaranteed. We urge you to exercise caution when transmitting personal information over the Internet, especially personal information related to your health. The Medicine Stop cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not gain access to your personal information; therefore, when submitting personal information to The Medicine Stop Website, you must weigh both the benefits and the risks. In addition, The Medicine Stop Website covered by this Privacy Policy will display a warning whenever you link to a Website that is not controlled by The Medicine Stop or subject to The Medicine Stop privacy policy; you should check the privacy policies of such third-party Websites before submitting personal information.

The Medicine Stop’s policies require that Social Security numbers be appropriately secured to avoid loss, misuse, or unauthorized access of Social Security numbers.
