Any information that you share with us is stored securely on our servers with the most paranoid of security measures. Our security would be the envy of most banks. Ethics is one of the things that separates us from most of our peers, so you will never be automatically signed up for a mailing list, or anything else.
We do not tolerate spam, nor participate in it. We actively take action against spammers that we find, to make their attempts to communicate via the Internet a hellish experience. You're welcome, by the way.
Our server is likely to share cookies (temporary data files) with your Internet browser program, if your settings allow it. These "cookies" contain information that is necessary to maintain your personal preferences. They are also necessary for you to be able to remain logged-in as a registered user. The "cookies" that you get from our server are used for private information exchanges between your software and our server. We recommend that you accept all browser cookies from HealthWyze.org, because they help our software to remember your preferences, and they make it possible for you to get user accounts with us.
The general rule is that your messages to us are to be kept private. We may publish your correspondences or portions thereof, if we feel that it would be of compelling interest to our readers. In such cases, the standard policy is to remove identifiable information, such as the sender's name and e-mail address, unless we get permission. Nevertheless, we reserve the right to publish anything that is sent to us, so people who are prone to sending threatening, deceitful, manipulative, or hateful messages should bear this possible consequence in mind.
Google is Watching
Health Wyze Media (healthwyze.org) utilizes Google's Adsense advertising, Sovrn advertising, and Google Analytics (for demographic data). This gives Google and Sovrn the ability to monitor traffic to our site. Thus, they probably know about you. We feel that we should give you our complete honesty about the situation. The same is true for about 90% of web sites.
Google advertising, Google Analytics, and Sovrn advertising have been disabled at our online store, to safeguard your shopping and banking information. Our store is kept under much tighter security, and your privacy at the store is assured.
