In addition, if you create a practitioner account, please be aware that information from your profile and information you share in public areas of the Website may appear in third party search engine results.

Additionally, any data you have submitted or shared with a third party will not be deleted by us.

Cookies and Tracking Technology

Like most other websites, the Website may use cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technology, depending on the features offered. Tracking technology is useful for gathering information such as browser type and operating system, tracking the number of visitors to the Website, and understanding how visitors use the Website. Cookies can also help us customize the Website and improve your experience. When you browse the Website, your information is not collected through the use of cookies; however, cookies may be tied to your previously provided information. Aggregate cookie and tracking information that does not directly identify you may be shared with third parties. Also, some content on the Website may be provided by third parties that may use cookies in conjunction with other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use the Website, which enables them to provide targeted advertising to you. We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. Our cookies do not and cannot infiltrate your hard drive to gather confidential information. Our cookies are not “spyware.” You can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject cookies. Be aware that removing or rejecting cookies could affect the availability and functionality of the Website.

Controls for Do-Not-Track Features

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have information about your web browsing activities monitored and collected. The Website does not track your browsing activities across third-party websites and we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will provide information about that practice in a revised version of this Privacy Policy.

Information Security

We employ reasonable physical, administrative, and electronic measures designed to safeguard and protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized access and disclosure. While we have taken reasonable steps to make the personally identifiable information you provide on the Website as secure as possible against unauthorized access, please be aware that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other types of misuse. Any information disclosed online can potentially be intercepted and used by unauthorized parties. We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We are not responsible for third party circumvention of any privacy settings or the failure of any security measures. To help ensure security via the Internet, we recommend you keep your browser up to date with automatic security updates enabled and you use a unique username and password that are never shared.

Children’s Information

While the Website and Services are directed to users of all ages, we do not knowingly solicit information from or market to children under the age of 18 without prior verifiable consent from such child’s parent or legal guardian (“Parental Consent”). If you are under the age of 13, you are not allowed to use the Services or create an account without Parental Consent. If you are at least 13 years old but not yet 18 years of age, you should not access or use the Website or Services without permission from your parent or guardian. We recommend that all children under 18 years of age ask their parents or legal guardians for permission before transmitting any information about themselves to anyone via the Internet. IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 13, DO NOT SUBMIT ANY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION THROUGH THE WEBSITE. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s online activity and to help enforce our privacy practices. With Parental Consent, we may collect information from children under the age of 13, such as name, address, phone number, email address, and responses to quizzes. With proper identification, parents and legal guardians may revoke Parental Consent or review, correct, and request deletion of their child’s information stored in our databases by contacting us by email at info@iCareBetter.com. When Parental Consent is revoked, we will stop collecting, using, processing, or disclosing, information from that child. If we learn that personally identifiable information from users under 13 years of age has been collected, we will take reasonable measures to promptly delete such information; however, the information may not be completely or comprehensively removed from our databases. If you are under 18 years of age and reside in California, you have the right to request removal of unwanted data that you publicly post on the Website. To request removal of such data, please contact us by email at info@iCareBetter.com and include a statement that you reside in California. While we will make sure the information is not publicly displayed on the Website, please be aware that the information may not be completely or comprehensively removed from our databases.
