Information That You Manually Provide
It is your choice whether to provide personal information to CRV. Some information must be provided in order to participate in certain services, features, programs or activities, so the decision not to provide information might limit or eliminate certain functions of the Website or the ability to participate. The types of personal information that CRV tends to request about you include, but are not limited to: your name and email address, your age, the age at which you begin to experience symptoms of an autoimmune condition, and your treatment method. Certain information you provide will be available to other users of the Website; for example, your user name, age, age at onset of symptoms, condition, and treatment method will be publicly displayed in connection with any comments you post to the Website using your Account. The opportunity to post comments requires your good judgment. It is your responsibility not to provide personal information about yourself that could be misused by others. Do not provide personal information about others without their permission.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, we will not sell your email address to third parties.

CRV may use information collected on the Website, which may include information gathered about you, for various purposes. In general, CRV uses personal information it collects to pursue our mission and operations, including the management of our Website and to engage in related activities. This may include storing information you in connection with your profile so that we can recognize you when you access your Account and make offers available to you based on information you provided. You should assume that we will use all information for all lawful purposes except insofar as this Agreement expressly limits our use of your information in some way.
We reserve the right, but do not undertake a duty, to notify you of court orders, subpoenas or other legal process if allowed. If you do not want us to respond to legal process compelling us to disclose your information, you need to seek a valid order permitting us to refuse to disclose it and serve the order on us at least 3 business days before the response deadline.

We may place a “cookie” on the browser of your computer. Cookies are a technology that installs a small amount of information on the computer of a website user to permit the website to recognize future visits using that computer. Cookies may enhance the convenience and use of the Website. For example, the information provided through cookies may be used to recognize you as a previous user of the Website (so you do not have to enter your personal information every time), offer personalized information for your use, and otherwise facilitate your experience using the Website. You may choose to decline cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may affect your ability to access or use certain features of the Website. We may also use clear gifs, and log file information to store user information, customize content, or monitor Website activity.
The Website may contain hyperlinks to other websites or Internet resources. When you click on one of those links you are contacting another website. We have no control over, and no responsibility or liability for, other websites or their collection, use and disclosure of your personal information.
Third-party advertisements may be displayed on the Website, which may contain cookies or other information-gathering technologies. We have no control over, and no responsibility or liability for, the cookies or other technologies used in the advertisements or for the use and disclosure of information collected through advertisement cookies or other technologies.
The AutoimmuneMom.com website hosts advertisements from Google AdSense and the sovrn advertising network. We do not allow any advertising to sway the topics or opinions drawn from the research of studies regarding the topics of the website. Thus the editorial content is not directed by the advertisements as it is network-driven and I am not directly engaged with the advertisers. The advertisements have the word ‘Advertisement’ above them and may be display or text advertising.
Third-party affiliate links appear in posts and throughout the website to allow the user purchase books, materials and other non-medical items from Amazon.com.
What Steps Are Taken To Keep Personal Information Secure?
Keeping secure the personal information that we collect is of great concern to us. We exercise care in providing secure transmission of your information from your computer to our servers in connection with the AutoimmuneMom Website. Personal information collected by the Website is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. While CRV has mechanisms in place to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
