2.3 No Personal Information from Children. The services hosted on the Site, including online prescription ordering, are not offered to children. Children are not permitted to use the Site, and we request that children under the age of 13 not submit any personal information to the website. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. Since information regarding children under the age of 13 should not be collected, the Company does not knowingly distribute personal information regarding children under the age of 13. If your child has submitted personal information, please contact us to request that such information be removed. Once we are aware of information entered by a child, we will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to remove such information from our databases and storage areas; however, we are not liable for any consequences relating to such information.

If we discover that such information was disclosed by you, we will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information; however, we are not liable for any consequences relating to such disclosures of information.
3. USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION COLLECTED. Our use and disclosure of certain information varies with respect to the type of information collected, including: (1) Non-Personal Information; (2) Personally Identifiable Information; and (3) Transactional Information.
3.1 Non-Personal Information. We use the Non-Personal Information collected through the Site for statistical purposes and for improving the functionality of the Site. In general, this information is used internally but we may, from time to time, engage a third party’s software or services to assist us with these analyses. In those limited cases, disclosure of this information to a third-party is necessary; however, the data remains anonymous at all times.
3.2 Personally Identifiable Information. We use PII collected through the Site in conjunction with our online prescription ordering function to respond to your requests for service. We may also use PII to communicate with you regarding refill reminders and other information relevant to your health.
Additionally, we may use your email address or other contact information to send you transactional messages, newsletters, special promotional offers, consumer surveys and other commercial messages. If you no longer wish to receive such commercial messages, simply click the 'unsubscribe' link that we include at the bottom of every email that we send you.
We may use third party service providers and suppliers to facilitate our operation of the Site and/or to do mailings on our behalf, and they may have access to PII. Additionally, we may provide PII to third parties for marketing purposes or to third parties that we believe have products or services of interest to you.
3.3 Transactional Information. We use Transactional Information collected through the Site for the purpose of processing commercial activities that you have initiated. This may include contacting third-party payors such as your insurance carrier, processing your request to pay by credit card or for delivery purposes, where applicable. Additionally, Transactional Information may be used for recordkeeping purposes, as appropriate.
Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy, disclosure of PII to third parties for non-marketing purposes may occur in certain situations such as: (i) responding to a subpoena, court order or other such request; (ii) responding to a law enforcement agency's request or as otherwise required by law; and (iii) providing PII and/or Transactional Information to a third party if we file for bankruptcy, or there is a transfer of the assets or ownership in connection with proposed or consummated corporate reorganizations, such as mergers, acquisitions, or sales of business units. In all such instances, we will take the utmost care to disclose only that information which is necessary and appropriate under the circumstances.

However, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that is disclosed online.
