1) YOUR PRIVACY: OVERVIEW
2) COLLECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION
You can access some areas of the Service without submitting any personally identifiable information.

The personally identifiable information that WHI collects through these portions of the Service may include your name, email address, address and telephone number and any other personally identifiable information that you choose to include in your submissions to us. You represent and warrant that you have the right and authority to provide any information provided by you. Through requesting active user consent, WHI may also collect certain non-personally identifiable information in connection with the operation of the Service, including IP addresses, browser or operating system information, data on advertisements or links on which you click, and the websites that you visit before or after you visit the Service. WHI will obtain consent explicitly from users through clear affirmative acts. Such information and consent records are maintained by WHI or service providers acting on behalf of others.
3) PROTECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION
To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy and facilitate the appropriate use of information, WHI uses physical, technological and administrative procedures to attempt to protect the personally identifiable information we collect through the Service. WHI takes these extensive measures to secure users’ data. Nevertheless, Internet transmissions are never completely private or secure. You understand that any messages or information you send to the Service may be read or intercepted by others, and users of the Service may be able to view your information. If you have any questions about the security of personally identifiable information collected by WHI, please contact us at support [a] womens-health.com.
In the event of a data breach, WHI would aim to detect the data breach and report it to the appropriate authorities within 72 hours. Also, if the security of user data is put at risk, then WHI will inform the affected or potentially affected users about the personal data breach within 72 hours.

5) PRODUCTS, SERVICES AND CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS
The information you enter when making a purchase through the Service will be shared with payment processors, financial gateways, and your credit card company to authorize credit card payments. Such personally identifiable information may also be shared with necessary third parties solely for the purpose of carrying out the transactions and to investigate allegations of fraud. We may also utilize any number of third-party payment processing companies to assist with the sales process, and you may be directed to their website in order to make purchases (see, Section 1).
6) DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
We may disclose your personally identifiable information to our subsidiaries or affiliates and to third-party partners whom we occasionally hire to provide services on our behalf, including support services, website services, delivery of promotional materials, the answering of customer questions about our services, and new services. WHI will only provide those third-party partners with the personally identifiable information they need to deliver the services to us and/or on our behalf, and they will be contractually prohibited from using that information for any other purpose. In the event that WHI is involved in a transaction such as a merger, stock purchase or sale, or sale of substantially all of WHI assets, your personal information may be transferred to the other party in such transaction.
WHI reserves the right to disclose your personally identifiable information if required to do so by law or legal process or otherwise requested by any law enforcement officer or agency acting under color of law. In addition, WHI reserves the right to disclose your personally identifiable information based on the good faith belief that such action is necessary or appropriate to do the following: (a) protect and defend the rights or property of WHI, or (b) act in urgent circumstances to protect the safety or security of the public or of users of WHI products and the Service.
8) WEBSITE ANALYTICS
9) NO SPYWARE OR ADWARE
We do not install any spyware or adware in connection with our Service or distribute any commercial message or authorize any third party to distribute any commercial message, by means of spyware or adware. “Spyware” or “adware” is any software which has been downloaded to or installed on an Internet user’s computer or device, without the user’s actual consent, and facilitates the distribution of any commercial message to the user. If you feel you may have spyware from another company installed on your machine or device, there are various anti-spyware/adware software applications available on the Internet to identify if this has occurred.
10) USER-PROVIDED CONTENT
If you post any User Generated Content (as defined in the Terms of Service) you are solely responsible for the content of your messages. You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personally identifying information (for example, your name, street address, email address, or telephone number) on the Service, that information can be read, collected and used by other users of the Service and may result in unsolicited messages, both commercial and otherwise. You agree that by participating in such online public forums, you will not do so for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by the WHI community guidelines that may be in effect from time to time in connection with the Service. We reserve the right to terminate your access to the Service or to take other protective steps if you violate these terms.
11) YOUR CALIFORNIA AND EU PRIVACY RIGHTS
WHI complies with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) made effective in the EU on May 25, 2018. WHI is committed to protecting the security of your personal information, and we take commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures that are designed to that end.
You have the right to obtain the following: (i) confirmation of whether, and where, WHI is processing your personal data; (ii) information about the purpose of the processing; (iii) information about the categories of data being processed; (iv) information about the categories of recipients with whom the data may be shared; information about the period for which the data will be stored (or the criteria used to determine that period); (v) information about the existence of the rights to erasure, to rectification, to restriction of processing and to object to processing; information about the existence of the right to complain; and (vi) information about the existence of, and an explanation of the logic involved in, any automated processing that has a significant effect on you.
Additionally, you may request a copy of their personal data being processed. You have a right to (i) receive a copy of personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format that supports re-use; (ii) transfer your personal data from one controller to another; (iii) store your personal data for further personal use on a private device; and (iv) have your personal data transmitted directly between controllers without hindrance. WHI will respond to your requests within one month, unless WHI receives a large number of requests, or especially complex requests, in which case the time limit may be extended by a maximum of two further months.
If you wish to opt out of any disclosures of your personal data to third parties or to prevent the use of your personal data for a purpose that is materially different from the purpose for which it was originally collected, you may log into your account and make changes necessary. The use of your personal data can be limited, or the information can be corrected, deleted, or exported to you or a third party of your choice, except as required by law.
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to their particular situation, to the processing of your personal data, where the basis for that processing is either public interest or the legitimate interests of the controller. WHI must cease such processing unless WHI demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the website visitor or requires the data in order to establish, exercise or defend legal rights.
You have the right not to be evaluated in any material sense (e.g., in connection with offers of employment; discounts; insurance premiums; or howsoever) solely on the basis of automated processing of your personal data.
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing which significantly affects you, including profiling. Such processing is permitted where it is necessary for entering into or performing a contract with you provided that appropriate safeguards are in place, it is authorized by law, or you have explicitly consented.
12) RETENTION OF YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
The personally identifiable information that you provide will be stored and maintained by WHI until you instruct us otherwise, or, in our sole discretion, for the longer of either of the following: (a) for so long as is necessary or appropriate to carry out the purpose(s) for which such information was collected (approximately  months) or (b) for so long as we are required to maintain such information by law or other applicable rules or regulations.
Additionally, service users have the right to be erased from WHI’s records upon request unless WHI has a legal reason to hold users’ information. Service users can submit their requests in writing to support [a] womens-health.com.

WHI reserves the right to deny access to your personally identifiable information: (a) when such denial of access is required by law; (b) when granting you access is reasonably likely to negatively impact other people’s privacy; (c) when granting such access is cost prohibitive; (d) when denying access is necessary to protect our rights and property; or (e) when such requests are frivolous or made in bad faith.
