E*HealthLine.com is owned and operated by E*HealthLine.com, Inc.("E*HealthLine"). E*HealthLine collects personal and non-personal information on E*HealthLine.com. E*HealthLine is committed to protecting the privacy of its users. We have created this Privacy Statement in order to describe and explain to users our information collection practice.

E*HEALTHLINE.COM PASSPORT

In the past, if a E*HealthLine.com website visitor wanted to download certain data or register with us for events, that visitor had to fill-out multiple forms throughout our website. We found out, through your feedback, that a single login with E*HealthLine.com would be the preferred method. To fulfill your request, we decided to develop a single-login visitor tracking and login system called "E*HealthLine.com Passport". If you have not registered with us through this mechanism before, then you are asked to fill-out a personal profile with us only one time. This data is securely kept in a database so that you may login with your email address and password of your choice in the future. This way, you may download as much information and register to as many events without having to enter your personal information multiple times.

 

WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED?

To participate in certain activities and to obtain certain services offered on this web site, a user is asked to provide varying amounts of personal information. Some information is mandatory while other information is discretionary. Each activity and service requires or requests different types of information in order for users to participate. Activities or services that require provision of personal information generally seek full name, email address, and phone number. Depending on the activity or service a user desires, we also may request personal information, such as credit card and mailing address. We endeavor to limit our requests for personal information to information we believe is minimally necessary to achieve our stated collection purposes. The following is a list of principal activities and services on E*HealthLine.com involving collection of personal information:


  • Alliance Program
  • Downloading of free software or documents
  • Viewing of product demonstrations
  • Purchasing E*HealthLine products
  • Participating in web seminars or other events
  • Career opportunities

HOW DOES E*HEALTHLINE USE MY INFORMATION?

Personal information is collected and used primarily for such purposes as, for example, facilitating purchases online, processing a user’s resume, or considering alliance applications. In particular, a user’s shipping and billing addresses are used for fulfilling purchase orders and for billing the user’s credit card. The personal information provided in resumes and alliance applications is used to consider the eligibility of candidates. In addition to the primary purposes for which personal information is collected, we may use the personal information to contact a user to confirm information related to a purchase order or to advise a user if an item for purchase is on back order. We may also use a user’s email address, phone number or address:


  • in our internal surveys to obtain feedback on our products, our web site, or on other aspects of our business that impact you as a E*HealthLine customer;
  • to notify a user of new products or services that we think may be of interest;
  • to send promotional materials;
  • to provide our free email newsletter.

If a user prefers not to receive emails or other forms of communication unrelated to E*HealthLine orders and requests for services, the user may opt-out from receiving such communication. The opt-out procedure is discussed in detail below. We may also use personal information to contact a user in connection with the user’s inappropriate use of E*HealthLine.com. We do not sell, rent, share, or otherwise dispose of the personal information collected on E*HealthLine.com to third parties. We may, however, disclose your personal information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to comply with law. We use non-personal information such as demographic data to analyze and develop our marketing strategy. We use non-personal information to determine how you found out about us, what your interests are regarding our services, and how to further improve our site and our service towards you. We also may share non-personal information with third parties.

 

HOW CAN I OPT-OUT

We provide a user with the opportunity to opt-out from receiving updates on new products, newsletters, and other promotional materials. The opt-out option may be exercised in the user's profile under the user's "E*HealthLine.com Passport". You can select not to be contacted in the future if you wish to not receive any information with respect to E*HealthLine and our products. You may also delete your account. Account deletion will erase all past entries in regards to your account and "E*HealthLine.com Passport". If you erase your "E*HealthLine.com Passport" account, you will have to re-register with us if you wish to access certain areas within the web site. If you do not have a user's profile under "E*HealthLine.com Passport", you can opt-out by sending an email, with the subject heading "Privacy Statement Opt-Out," to webmaster@ehealthline.com. In the email, you should request the opt-out option.

DOES E*HEALTHLINE'S PRIVACY POLICY APPLY TO LINKED WEB SITES?

Our Privacy Statement applies solely to information collection practice on E*HealthLine. This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that E*HealthLine has no control or influence over the privacy practices of such other sites.

HOW DOES E*HEALTHLINE HANDLE SECURE DATA TRANSMISSIONS?

Please note that on E*HealthLine.com there are forms that allow you to transmit credit card information in order to complete a purchase transaction. Any time we ask for a credit card number, we transmit that credit card number in an encrypted format. We use industry-standard, SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, E*HealthLine cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

You have the right to correct or update the personal information collected about you on E*HealthLine.com. To correct or update personal information, a user should modify the user's "E*HealthLine.com Passport" profile.

 

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT

If we later change our Privacy Statement, we will post those changes on our homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personal information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner by making changes to their "E*HealthLine.com Passport" profile.
