Posting Content to Our Site
Although we allow you to set certain privacy options that limit access to your personal information, please be aware that no security measures, including those implemented by Internet sites such as ours, are perfect or impenetrable. You should also be aware that other Members of the site with whom you share personal information may, in turn, use that information in a manner inconsistent with your expectations. For example, they may decide to share your information with others, post it to blogs or maintain it in storage locations that are not adequately safeguarded. Accordingly, even if you request removal of your personal information from this site, your information may still remain viewable in the sites of other Members or in cached or archived pages or files maintained by other Members or third parties who may have received your information from them.
We therefore encourage you to evaluate carefully the information that you choose to post about yourself on this and other Internet sites, since despite the security safeguards, it may be viewed or accessed by unauthorized persons.
Use of Information Obtained by Alliance to Make US Healthiest
When you become a Member of the Alliance to Make US Healthiest, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, including your identity and the information you choose to post, is then displayed to other Members and, if you choose, Visitors, acccording to your specifications. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by the Alliance to Make US Healthiest that we think you may find valuable, to request your participation in surveys, or for other Member-related information purposes. If you do not want us to contact you, please let us know (via the Contact Us link on our website) and we will remove your information from our marketing list.
The Alliance to Make US Healthiest may use information in your profile without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as aggregating how many Members are interested in a particular aspect of health and well-being..
Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
The Alliance to Make US Healthiest allows you to choose which Members of our site will have access to your personal information, and also allows you to make some of your information available to site Visitors. The Alliance to Make US Healthiest may share your information with third parties for purposes of providing our services to you, including, for example, service-related emails notifying you of changes to our site or new services. We never sell or share your information with any third party for their own separate use. Also, if we do share your information with a third party service provider, we require them to agree in writing to adhere to substantially similar privacy and security requirements to those adopted by the Alliance to Make US Healthiest..
There may be infrequent instances where we are legally obligated to share Member information with law enforcement or respond to a subpoena. In addition, for children under age 18 who improperly register by giving a false age, we may share their information with their parent or guardian (after proper authentication of that individual).
Generally, you may withdraw your consent to receive such emails from Alliance to Make US Healthiest, although we reserve the right to send you notices about your Member status even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
The Alliance to Make US Healthiest takes appropriate precautions to safeguard the personal information provided to us. However, please be aware that no security measures, including those implemented by Internet sites such as ours, are perfect or impenetrable. You should also be aware that other Members of the site with whom you choose to share personal information may, in turn, use that information in a manner that is inconsistent with your expectations. For example, they may decide to share your information with others, post it to blogs, or copy or store your information. Accordingly, even after removal, copies of your personal information may remain viewable in cached or archived pages or in files of other Members (through this site or otherwise) who have copied or stored your personal information.
You should also be sure to select a secure password (at least 6 digits, combination of numbers and letters) that is not easily recognizable. Do not share your password with anyone or store it in a place that can be accessed by others.
