Information Collection, Storage and Use
We refer to information that identifies an individual as “Personal Information.” In general, CultureRx collects Personal Information from users of the website in connection with access to certain online areas or services, including during (i) login for certain online community services and tools such as message boards, chat rooms or other community services; (ii) login for special communications, such as email updates and newsletters; and (iii) subscription registration. Your Personal Information is stored on CultureRx’s computer servers (or those of its service providers) located in the United States.
We may gather data about the areas of the website you visit or access. We do not use any of this navigational data about where you “as an individual user” go on website or share any of this data with third parties. However, we do use and share navigational data in aggregate, non-personal form to understand how our users as a group use the website.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information in public areas of our website, such as the message boards, your information can be viewed and possibly used by others. We advise users to be especially careful in such public areas about disclosing Personal Information, such as full name, home address, or phone number.
Below are more details about the Personal Information we, or third parties may gather from you and how we may use it.
A. Email Newsletters. CultureRx offers email newsletters to its registered users. We will use your email address to send you only the specific newsletter(s) that you signed up for. If you want to update your email address or stop receiving a newsletter, follow the procedures to unsubscribe at the bottom of any newsletter we send you or simply visit the login page of the website to update your profile.
B. Membership Information. When you login for membership on the website, we will ask you for certain minimum required information, such as your name, birth date, gender, your address, employer, employer’s address, and/or your email address. We may also ask for additional information about you and your interests. We do this so we can better understand your preferences and tailor the website to suit you better. The more information you volunteer, the more we can tailor the website to your interests.
C. Email Updates to Members. If you so elect at registration, we may periodically send you promotional email about products or services offered by CultureRx, our partners and affiliates. If you want to update your email address or stop receiving these types of promotional emails, please follow the procedures to unsubscribe at the bottom of any email we send you or simply visit the login page on the website to update your profile.
We may contact you regarding account status, changes to this Policy, our Terms of Service, to confirm your login information or for any other business reason related to your use of the website.
D. Surveys and User Research. CultureRx may conduct email and web-delivered surveys from time to time, as well as instant polls, to gather information about our users. Taking these surveys and polls is entirely optional. You have no obligation to respond to them. We share only the aggregate results of these surveys, not Personal Information, with our affiliates and partners to help them better understand our services and monitor the reach of their offerings on our service. We also use some of the Personal Information that you provide in these surveys to help us understand your interests and to make website more useful to you.
F. Purchase of Products or Services. When you purchase products or services from or through the website, we may require Personal Information such as name, address, telephone number and billing information, including credit card, debit card or bank account data. CultureRx will not disclose your Personal Information, including billing information, except to the extent necessary to complete your transaction, for example during an online purchase or where needed to deliver a product or service you ordered.
G. Software Updates; Interactive Material. CultureRx automatically updates software used in conjunction with certain of the services available on the website. In order to update this software, CultureRx collects a user’s current version information from the user’s computer. This information is not archived and is only used to determine which software requires updating. CultureRx may record audio conversations or copy text chat or video images from chat rooms on the website and may disclose such material for use in connection with promoting the website.
H. Sharing Non-Personal Information. CultureRx may share information that is not Personal Information — meaning non-personal, aggregate, or summary, information regarding our users — with other third parties not mentioned in this Policy. This kind of information does not identify you individually.
I. Merger or Acquisition. In the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of all or substantially all of its assets, or the sale of an individual website owned by CultureRx, CultureRx may transfer your Personal Information to a third party as a part of such merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale.

Your Personal Information is stored on CultureRx computer servers (or those of our service providers) located in the United States.
