At HealthDiary Inc., the protection of your personal information has always been our top priority. Therefore, we are sensitive to protecting the privacy of those that visit our Web site. We recognize the need for appropriate protections and management of any personal information that you provide to this Web site. HealthDiary has therefore established this Privacy Policy to assist you to understand what information we collect and how that information is used. Your provision of any personal information to HealthDiary means that you agree that we may collect, use and disclose your information in accordance with our privacy policy. If you do not agree with these terms, please do not provide any personal information to HealthDiary Inc. 1) What personally identifiable information does HealthDiary collect from you? In general, you can visit the www.HealthDiary.ca web site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We track visiting domains Internet addresses from which people visit us to track a user’s session. The user’s browser also lets us know the type of computer and operating system being used. This allows us to identify which parts of our site users spend their time on and their length of stay, but does not give us any personal information about the user. Specifically, while a user’s session will be tracked, the user remains anonymous. To access certain parts of the Web site, however, we will ask you to voluntarily provide information about yourself. Personal information is collected when you register as a user, when you complete a questionnaire, participate in a study, clinic or when you email us with an information request or query. Please see section 3 on security for how this information is protected. You have the choice when registering, or at any time when you are a registered user, to select an “email notification” option. This permits us to send information to your email address regarding new additions to the site or information on upcoming events that may be of interest to you. You can de-select this option at any time by going into your User Profile and removing the check from the checkbox. Our website contains links at various points for users to email HealthDiary Inc. When you use these links, your email is provided to the administrator of the ww.healthdiary.ca website. We only use this information to respond to your inquiry. We will only collect information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to serve our legitimate business purposes and to better improve our services. We will maintain appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of the information. We may use the information provided by you to compile demographic and statistical profiles on an aggregate basis in order to analyze our performance. 2) Sharing of personal information HealthDiary Inc. has custody and control of the information collected on this site.

All reasonable and appropriate security safeguards are taken to securely store and protect all personal information gathered by HealthDiary Inc., such as the requirement of passwords for access and the implementation of firewalls and SSL Encryption with respect to protecting information held in electronic form. Unfortunately, no data protection method or combination of methods can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
