Privacy Policy

T.A. Sciences Privacy Policy

The privacy of your personal information is important to T.A. Sciences®. To better protect your privacy, we provide you with our Privacy Policy so that you will understand our commitment to you and to your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes what information we may collect about you, how we use your information, how we protect it, and what choices you have regarding how that information is used. At T.A. Sciences®, we understand that health is a very personal, private subject, and we want you to feel as comfortable as possible visiting our websites and using their respective services.

As our Privacy Policy changes in significant ways, we will make every effort to notify you of the changes. Minor changes to the policy may occur that will not affect our use of individually identifiable or personal health information. When the Privacy Policy changes in a way that significantly affects the way we handle personal information, we will not use the information we have previously gathered without providing notice or obtaining your consent when appropriate. We will post Privacy Policy changes on our websites in a timely manner.

The following articles comprise our Privacy Policy. We hope that reading them gives you a clear idea of how we manage your information. For immediate access to a particular topic, click on the title of that topic.

When we refer to ourselves as "we" or "T.A. Sciences®", we mean our entire company, including any company that we control (for example, a subsidiary that we own). We may share information among companies that we own or control, and we may share information with our co-promotion partners and companies working with T.A. Sciences®, but all information we share will always be protected under the terms of this Privacy Policy.

You should read the Privacy Policy at each website that you visit after you leave one of our sites. T.A. Sciences® is not responsible for how other websites treat your privacy once you leave a T.A. Sciences® website.

Personal information we collect

Information we collect from visitors

Visitors to websites can access the website’s home page and browse areas of the site without disclosing personally identifiable information. We do track information provided to us by your browser, including the website you came from (known as the referring URL), the type of browser you use, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you. On some of our sites, you must register to access portions of the site.

In addition, we gather information about you that is automatically collected by our web server, such as your IP address and domain name. T.A. Sciences® may use web server and browser information to individually customize its offerings and presentations if you submit your personal information.

Information from outside sources

We may also collect information about physicians or other healthcare professionals who register on our websites from other sources in order to verify their licensure status and identity. In some cases, we ask customers for information after they register, such as credit card information. Where necessary (for example, to process an order for a purchase), our websites may contact financial or credit organizations to confirm customer credit card information.

From time to time, we may augment our existing user databases with legally obtained information from third parties. Some of this information may be personally identifiable, such as national change of address information. We do this to better target our information offerings and promotional campaigns and to provide pertinent offers in which we think you would be interested.

Other information

We also collect information that you voluntarily provide to us through responses to surveys, search functions, questionnaires, feedback, Tell Your Story forms, and the like.

Some of our websites offer health assessment tools that ask you to provide self-assessment information.
We may also ask you to provide additional information, such as your e-mail address, if you want to obtain additional services or information or to resolve complaints or concerns.

Use of cookies and other tracking systems

Cookies, log files, and pixel-tags (web beacons) are technologies used by the T.A. Sciences® websites to identify a user as the user moves through our websites. Your browser allows us to place some information (session-based IDs and/or persistent cookies) on your computer’s hard drive that identifies the computer you are using. We may use cookies to personalize our websites and to track your usage across other T.A. Sciences® websites.

Your web browser can be set to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies, reject cookies, or be notified each time a cookie is sent to you. If your browser is set to reject cookies, websites that are cookie-enabled will not recognize you when you return to the website, and some website functionality may be lost. The Help section of your browser will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies.

On occasion, we contract with third parties to place cookies on your computer’s hard drive. These third parties have entered into an agreement with us that requires them to observe our Privacy Policy.

Although cookies do not normally contain personally identifiable information, if you have provided us with information about you, we may associate your registration information with cookies or other tracking utilities our website places on your computer’s hard drive. Associating a cookie with your registration data allows us to offer increased personalization and functionality. Without cookies, this functionality would not be possible.

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our sites (for example, links to business partners). We do not want our business partners to use cookies to track our customers’ activities once they leave our sites. However, we may not have total control over how our business partners may use cookies on our websites. If you become aware that a T.A. Sciences® business partner is placing an unwanted cookie on your hard drive, please contact our Privacy Officer to assist us in resolving the problem.

In addition, we may use other tracking systems, like pixel tags. Pixel tags, sometimes called web beacons, are similar in function to a cookie. But because of their insignificant size, they are not visible; though, they are used to pass certain information to our servers to personalize our websites and to track your usage across other T.A. Sciences® websites. In addition, we may also use pixel tags in our HTML-based emails.

How do we use the information?

Aggregate data

We gather aggregate data about visitors to our websites for product and service development and improvement activities. We also use it for market analysis. We may provide information from our websites in aggregate form, with identifying information removed, to third parties. When aggregate health information is provided, we pool it from many individual records and strip it of any data that could be used to identify an individual before it is used. Any third party that receives aggregated healthcare data must agree not to attempt to re-identify the people it belongs to.

Marketing: Healthcare Messages

We may target our marketing and healthcare messaging depending on the information available to us. For example, a user we know is a woman may receive information on products targeted at women that a male user will not see, or a user who we know is a healthcare professional who treats arthritis may receive information for new arthritis therapies. We may send information to you that we believe will benefit you, including information about any T.A. Sciences® products.

We may also personalize our website based on your interests. For example, you may see articles on our website based on information you have shared with us, or information we have gained by reviewing your previous visits, or information we may have gained from your interactions with a third party that shares information with us.

When we share information with third parties working on behalf of T.A. Sciences®, we use our best efforts to ensure that they agree, in writing, to abide by T.A. Sciences®‘ privacy policies.

If we discover that a third party working on behalf of T.A. Sciences® inappropriately disclosed personal information about any of our visitors, we will take immediate action to prevent further occurrences.

Other than as described above, T.A. Sciences® will not release personally identifiable information to a third party without your consent.

Protection of information: How T.A. Sciences handles privacy internally

Our commitment to security

We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.

General policies

We have implemented technology and security policies, rules, and other measures to protect the personal data in our control from unauthorized access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction, and accidental loss. We also protect your information by requiring that all our employees and others who have access to or are associated with the processing of your data respect your confidentiality.

Storage of health information

Personally identifiable health information you share with us is stored on our database servers at T.A. Sciences®, data centers (in whatever country they may be located), or hosted by third parties who have entered into agreements with us that require them to observe our Privacy Policy. We have a firewall and other technology to prevent individuals from accessing information without authorization. Data centers are designed to be physically secure and protected from unauthorized access by unauthorized persons.

Information in our data centers is backed up routinely to aid the recovery of information in the event of accidental damage of information or a natural disaster. The backup media is stored in a physically secure storage facility.

Third parties

In addition to aggregate information (discussed previously), we may share some information with third parties, as described below.

Companies and people who work for us

We contract with companies and individuals to help us provide services. For example, we may host some of our websites on another company’s computers, hire technical consultants to maintain our web-based health sites, or work with companies to remove repetitive information from customer lists, analyze data, provide marketing assistance, and provide customer service. In addition, if you are a healthcare professional, we may validate your licensure status and other information in databases that contain licensed healthcare professionals. In order to perform their jobs, these companies may have limited access to the personal information we maintain regarding our users. Other companies may collect information on our behalf through their sites. This occasionally incorporates the use of frames on the site that will not show the URL you are visiting in the browser address window. We require such companies to comply with the terms of our privacy policies, to limit their access to any personal information to the minimum necessary to perform their obligations, and not to use the information they may access for purposes other than fulfilling their responsibilities to us. We use our best efforts to limit other companies’ use of personally identifiable and healthcare information.

Promotional and informational offers

Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of customers. To accomplish this we may use third parties working on behalf of T.A. Sciences®. We provide a variety of mechanisms for you to tell us you do not want to receive such promotional or informational offers. For example, we may provide an opt-in box for customers to receive information that is sent by a third-party fulfillment house, and we make clear that, by opting in, you are submitting your data to a third-party. You can elect not to receive promotional or informational material from us by following the instructions to opt-out as mentioned or included in each of our programs we send to you.

Business transfers

If we transfer a business unit (such as a subsidiary) or an asset (such as a website) to another company, we will require it to honor the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Legal requirements

We may release accounts and other personal information when we believe it is required to comply with the law. We may release personal health information if, in our judgment after review by an attorney, the release is compelled by law or regulation or if the release may be necessary to prevent the death or serious injury of an individual.

Updating your personal information and contacting T.A. Sciences®

You may contact us to (i) remove your personal information from our systems, (ii) update personal information you have provided to us, (iii) change your preferences with respect to marketing contacts by e-mailing us at [email protected] or, if available, log into your account to update your information.

Children’s Policy

We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know is a child under the age of 13.

Privacy Policy updated December 10, 2013.
