Information Collected About You

Some of our Services (such as certain quizzes or calculators) do not retain your personal information, while others (such as NeedHealthTips Lab Testing and the Ovulation/Pregnancy Calendar and the Healthy Target Program in the NeedHealthTips App and certain of our registration-only Apps like NeedHealthTips Baby, NeedHealthTips Pregnancy and NeedHealthTips Allergy) store your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Even if you do not register with or provide any personal information to NeedHealthTips, we collect information about your use of the NeedHealthTips Sites and Apps and the Services. We may also acquire information about our users from external sources.

When you use the Services, we collect information as follows:

If you choose to register or update an existing account with NeedHealthTips or access certain Services, you may be required to provide certain personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number, gender, email address and date of birth, and a username and password to access your NeedHealthTips account. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the personal information that you submit to NeedHealthTips.

Interactive Services

Some of our Services, such as NeedHealthTips Symptom Checker, are interactive and may request that you submit health-related information, along with other information such as your age and gender. You are not required to register with NeedHealthTips to use NeedHealthTips Symptom Checker and if you are registered with NeedHealthTips, we do not associate information that you submit to the Symptom Checker with registration information that you have previously provided.

NeedHealthTips Health Manager
NeedHealthTips Health Manager provides you with a secure place to gather, store, manage and share your personal information and provides tools and services to better manage your health and the health of your family. You are required to register with NeedHealthTips to use NeedHealthTips Health Manager. NeedHealthTips Health Manager has the ability to use information that you provide to send you personalized emails or secure electronic messages. However, NeedHealthTips does not allow any third parties to gather any data about you in connection with your use of the NeedHealthTips Health Manager including through the use of cookies and other tracking technologies. Furthermore, NeedHealthTips does not use any information that you submit in connection with NeedHealthTips Health Manager to deliver any advertisements to you on or off of the NeedHealthTips Sites.

NeedHealthTips Lab Testing

Certain NeedHealthTips users located in the United States may be eligible to participate in NeedHealthTips Lab Testing, a service powered by PWNHealth, which enables you to place a secure online order for certain lab tests. Once you’ve ordered your test, you’ll visit a designated testing center where an experienced lab technician will collect your samples. NeedHealthTips has selected PWNHealth to provide care coordination (including independent physician review of test orders) and other administrative services (including processing credit card payments for the lab test orders). Ordering a lab test with NeedHealthTips Lab Testing requires you to register with NeedHealthTips. NeedHealthTips will share the personal information you use to register with NeedHealthTips with PWNHealth for purposes of processing and administering your lab test order. You will be able to access your lab test orders and results from PWNHealth through your NeedHealthTips account but NeedHealthTips will never receive your lab test results or your payment information. Only PWNHealth will have access to this information. PWNHealth may disclose to NeedHealthTips certain personal information in the aggregate which does not identify you. PWNHealth will use your personal information and other information it collects about you in providing the NeedHealthTips Lab Testing services in accordance with its privacy policy available here and terms of use available here. When you interact with NeedHealthTips Lab Testing you may interact with certain website pages that are hosted by NeedHealthTips or by PWNHealth. This Privacy Policy describes what information NeedHealthTips collects about you when you use NeedHealthTips’s Services and how that information is used, disclosed, and maintained by NeedHealthTips. PWNHealth’s privacy policy and terms of use will appear on any website page that is hosted by PWNHealth. For the avoidance of doubt, this Privacy Policy only applies to the NeedHealthTips Site pages hosted by NeedHealthTips. NeedHealthTips and PWNHealth will use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect information about your usage of NeedHealthTips Lab Testing, including which lab tests you have viewed and to statistically analyze trends and other user behavior on the NeedHealthTips Lab Testing pages. Other than PWNHealth, NeedHealthTips does not allow any third parties to gather any data about you in connection with your purchase of a lab test through NeedHealthTips Lab Testing including through the use of cookies or other tracking technologies. Furthermore, NeedHealthTips does not use any personal information that you submit in connection with NeedHealthTips Lab Testing to deliver any advertisements to you on or off of the NeedHealthTips Sites.

Email Newsletters
At registration and at various times as you use the NeedHealthTips Sites, you will be given the option of providing us with personal information in order to receive informational/promotional newsletters – such as a newsletter relating to a specific health condition – via email from NeedHealthTips and/or directly from third parties. From time to time NeedHealthTips may offer users of third-party websites the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletters through those websites. If you elect to subscribe to one of our newsletters on a third party website, the operator of that website will provide us with the personal information you have provided in connection with the subscription request, which we may use in accordance with this Privacy Policy as though you had provided it directly to NeedHealthTips.

Email a Friend

If you use our Email a Friend service to tell a friend about a feature on a NeedHealthTips Site or a newsletter, we will ask you for your name, your email address, and your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site using your name and email address as the “from” email address. NeedHealthTips does not use your friend’s email information for any other purpose. We will only use the information you provide to send the requested email to your friend.

If you believe that one of your contacts has provided us with your personal information and you would like to request that it be removed from our database, please use the Contact Us link provided at the bottom of every page of the NeedHealthTips Sites.

Market Research

From time to time, NeedHealthTips may conduct online research surveys on behalf of itself and third parties through email invitations, pop-up surveys, and online focus groups. When participating in a survey, we may require you to provide your location, age, and if there’s a sweepstake associated with the market research survey, your name, and contact information for purposes of sweepstakes administration. The information you submit in a survey may be used by NeedHealthTips for research and measurement purposes, as described below, including to measure the effectiveness of content, advertising, or programs. The personal information you provide in connection with a sweepstakes entry will be used for the sole purpose of administering the sweepstakes and as required by applicable law. We will not knowingly invite individuals who are under the age of 13 to participate in market research surveys. Market research surveys conducted by or on behalf of NeedHealthTips will contain a link to this Privacy Policy.

User Reviews and Other Public Forums

When enabled by you, we collect precise location information provided by your mobile device, which you may disable through the device settings.

Precise Geolocation Data

When enabled by you, we collect precise location information provided by your mobile device. We do so to provide you more relevant content including advertising based on your location. You may disable the collection and use of your location data through your device settings. To change location settings on your device, please refer to your device’s official knowledge base.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
We and our partners use cookies to collect information about your use of the Services. “Cookies” are small data files assigned to your browser when you visit a NeedHealthTips Site that enables recognition of your browser and collects and stores information about your use of the Services, as described above. In addition to cookies, we and our partners use other tracking technologies that collect information about your use of the Services, including mobile identifiers and “web beacons” which are small graphic files (sometimes called “clear GIFs” or “web pixels”) embedded in a web page or email typically used to monitor activity and send relevant information back to a home server (which can belong to the host site, a network advertiser or some other third party). The information collected by such tracking technologies may be combined with other information that our partners have access to, including your name, email address, and physical address, so that we can send you materials, either electronically or by direct mail, that may be of interest to you.Our advertising service partners may use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect information about your use of the NeedHealthTips Sites, including content you have viewed. These third parties may use this information to help NeedHealthTips deliver advertising on the NeedHealthTips Sites and on other third party websites based on your browsing activity on the NeedHealthTips Sites. NeedHealthTips may further tailor the advertising on the NeedHealthTips Sites and these other third party websites based on additional information to the extent known by NeedHealthTips or these third parties.. Two of the third parties that NeedHealthTips works with are Google and Facebook. In addition to using the information it collects performing services for NeedHealthTips, Google may also use such information as described in its privacy policy. To see how Google may use information collected through our use of the Google services on the NeedHealthTips Sites visit https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners.  While Facebook does not provide any personal information to NeedHealthTips, Facebook may use information that it has about you and that it collects performing services for NeedHealthTips (which may be associated with personal information that Facebook has about you) as described in its privacy policy available at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.
To provide you with certain personalization and advertising services described herein, when you use our NeedHealthTips Sites, we may share information that we may collect from you, such as your email address (in hashed form), IP address, or information about your browser or operating system, with our service provider, LiveRamp Inc., and its affiliates, which may in turn link demographic or interest-based information to your browser. To opt-out of this use, visit https://liveramp.com/opt_out/. We also work with third-party ad networks to display advertising on our NeedHealthTips Sites and on third-party websites. Our ad network vendors use technologies to collect information about your activities on the NeedHealthTips Sites and in our flagship NeedHealthTips, App to provide you cookie-based targeted advertising on our NeedHealthTips Sites and on third party websites based upon your browsing activity and your interests.For more information about how cookies and other tracking technologies are used in connection with the Services, please read our Cookie Policy.When you download and install one of our Apps onto your mobile device we assign a random number to your App installation. This number cannot be used to identify you personally, and we cannot identify you personally unless you choose to become a registered user of the App. We use this random number in a manner similar to our use of cookies as described in this Privacy Policy and in our Cookie Policy. Unlike cookies, the random number is assigned to your installation of the App itself and not a browser, because the App does not work through your browser. Therefore the random number cannot be removed through settings. If you do not want us to use the random number for the purposes for which we use cookies, please do not use the Apps. Our use of cookies and other tracking technologies on our mobile optimized sites and our flagship NeedHealthTips App are similar to our use on our desktop sites. Your choices to reject cookies, use the Network Advertising Initiative, and the opt-out mechanism described below in the section “Your Choices and Rights” are available on our flagship NeedHealthTips App and on our mobile-optimized sites.

Cross-Device Tracking

We and our service providers collect and store information about users’ interactions with unaffiliated websites and applications that use our technologies, including cookies and similar tracking technologies. This allows us to infer the presence of a common user or household behind multiple devices. We do so in order to:

  • provide personalized advertising on each device that is inferred from the browsing patterns on all of the devices;
  • detect and prevent fraud;
  • allow users to use our service on one device and pick up seamlessly where they left off on another device;
  • limit the number of times a user is shown the same advertisement, across known or inferred devices

For information on your advertising choices and opt-out, please see the “Your Choices and Rights” section of this Privacy Notice.

Sharing Your Information

NeedHealthTips Subsidiaries and Corporate Affiliates

We may share your information with our subsidiaries, affiliates and companies acquired by or merged with us and our affiliates. In the event of a corporate change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or a merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, NeedHealthTips reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control or the party acquiring assets. In the event of such a change, your personal information will continue to be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy unless any changes to the Privacy Policy are made in accordance with the section below that discusses “Changes to This Privacy Policy.”

Companies and Contractors that Work with NeedHealthTips

NeedHealthTips works with third-party companies and contractors that help us provide the Services and otherwise assist in the operation of the NeedHealthTips Sites and Apps, including those that provide services relating to technology, data analysis, research, email management and deployment, sweepstakes and contest administration, advertising and marketing and/or content. NeedHealthTips contractors sometimes have limited access to your information in the course of providing products or services to NeedHealthTips. We contractually require that our contractors not use or disclose your information for any purpose other than providing the limited service or function for NeedHealthTips.

Third-Party Advertisers and Third Party Websites

We may share information that we have about you, such as a cookie ID or IP address, with third-party advertising service providers who may use this information, on our behalf, to help NeedHealthTips deliver advertising on the NeedHealthTips Sites as well as on third party websites, as further described in our Cookie Policy.

Certain content, services, and advertisements offered to you through the NeedHealthTips Sites are served on, or contain links to, websites hosted and operated by a company other than NeedHealthTips (“Third Party Websites”). NeedHealthTips does not share your personal information with these Third Party Websites without your consent, but you should be aware that any information you disclose to these Third-Party Websites once you access these Third Party Websites is not subject to this Privacy Policy. NeedHealthTips does not endorse and is not responsible for the privacy practices of these Third-Party Websites. You should review the privacy policy posted on the Third Party Website to understand how that Third Party Website collects and uses your information. NeedHealthTips makes an effort to make it obvious to you when you leave a NeedHealthTips Site and enter a Third Party Website, either by requiring you to click on a link or by notifying you on the NeedHealthTips Site before you visit the third-party site. In addition, if you see a phrase such as “Powered by” or “in association with” followed by the name of a company other than NeedHealthTips, then you are on a website hosted by a company other than NeedHealthTips. When you use a co-branded service (a service operated with a partner of NeedHealthTips, such as NeedHealthTips Lab Testing), or register or otherwise provide information on a co-branded site, where applicable, we may pass the collected information back to that partner, which may include third-party service providers whose services are embedded into and/or appear within the Services.

We may also include social widgets on the NeedHealthTips Sites which enable you to interact with the associated social media services, e.g., to share an article. These widgets may collect browsing data that may be received by the third party that provided the widget, and are controlled by these third parties. You may be able to manage your privacy preferences directly with the applicable social network platform.

Compliance with Law, Regulation, and Law Enforcement Requests

To cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law, we may release personal information to third parties: (1) to comply with legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, or court order; (2) when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request; or (3) in special cases, such as in response to a physical threat to you or others, to protect the property or defend or assert legal rights. In addition, we may disclose personal information as described below.

How Your Information is Secured and Retained

We take reasonable security measures to protect the security of your personal information. Despite NeedHealthTips’s efforts to protect your personal information, there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way around our security systems or that transmissions of your information over the Internet may be intercepted.

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter personal information (including personal health information in various Services), we encrypt the transmission of that information or use SSL connections (Secure Socket Layer) technology.

We will retain your personal information as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you Services. At any time you can remove your personal information or instruct us to remove it, but you should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to NeedHealthTips from our servers. See “Your Choices and Rights” below for more information on how you can update or remove your personal information. We will also retain your personal information as necessary to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

Cookies

Most browser software can be set to reject Cookies. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject Cookies in the “Help” or “Settings” or “Preferences” section of your browser’s toolbar. Refer to our Cookie Policy for additional information about opting out of Cookies.

Interest-Based Advertising Opt-Out
In order to give you more control over your privacy choices, we have implemented a DAA (Digital Advertising Alliance) approved opt-out mechanism for interest-based advertising. At the bottom of every page of the NeedHealthTips Sites, you will see an AdChoices logo (which looks like this:Ad Choices). In our flagship NeedHealthTips App, you can find the AdChoices option in the “Settings” screen. By clicking on that logo on the NeedHealthTips Sites or following the instructions in the flagship NeedHealthTips App, you will be presented with a window that will identify all of the companies that NeedHealthTips uses to direct tailored advertisements to you, both on the NeedHealthTips Sites and in the flagship NeedHealthTips App as well as on third-party websites. If you would like to stop this tailored advertising from NeedHealthTips, you can manage these advertisements through the choices in that window. Please note that even if you opt-out of interest-based advertising, you will continue to receive generic advertisements through the Services. Please note that your choice to stop tailored advertising is specific to the browser or mobile device that you are using so if you make a choice to opt-out from one computer or mobile device and you want your opt-out to apply to a different computer or mobile device as well please opt-out from that computer or mobile device too. By clicking the + symbol next to the name of a vendor in that window you will get information about how and where that vendor assists us with the delivery of advertisements. The NeedHealthTips Sites do not respond to web browser “do not track” signals. This opt-out mechanism is available in the flagship NeedHealthTips App for iOS and Android, as well as on our mobile-optimized sites, but is not currently available on our other Apps (NeedHealthTips Pregnancy, NeedHealthTips Baby, and NeedHealthTips Allergy).

Mobile Opt-out

You may also control interest-based advertising on your mobile device by enabling the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting in your iOS device’s settings or “Opt-out of Ads Personalization” in your Android device’s settings. This will not prevent you from seeing advertisements but will limit the use of device advertising identifiers to personalize ads based on your interests. If you have questions about how to reject cookies on your specific device please check with the device manufacturer.

Children

We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. The NeedHealthTips Sites are not designed or intended to attract children under the age of 13.

The parent or guardian assumes full responsibility for ensuring that the registration information is kept secure and that the information submitted is accurate.
