We may also use the information we obtain about you in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection.
Your Failure to Provide Personal Information
Your provision of Personal Information is required in order to use certain parts of our Sites and Services. If you fail to provide such Personal Information, you may not be able to access and use our Sites and/or Services, or parts of our Sites and/or Services.
Our Retention of Your Personal Information
We determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Information on the basis of the amount, nature and sensitivity of your Personal Information processed, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Information and whether we can achieve the purposes of the processing through other means, as well as on the basis of applicable legal requirements (such as applicable statutes of limitation).
After expiry of the applicable retention periods, your Personal Information will be deleted. If there is any data that we are unable, for technical reasons, to delete entirely from our systems, we will put in place appropriate measures to prevent any further use of such data.
Sharing Personal Information
Digital Pharmacist may disclose your Personal Information to commercial providers for a business purpose, which include verifying your identity when making a payment or registering access to your accounts. When we disclose Personal Information for these reasons, we enter into a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that Personal Information confidential and not use it for any purpose except for the purposes set forth in the contract.
In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have disclosed the following categories of Personal Information for one or more business purposes:
- California Customer Records Personal Information categories;
- Protected classification characteristics under California or federal law;
- Commercial Information;
- Internet or other network activity information;
- Geolocation Data;
- Sensory Data;
- Professional or employment-related information.
We disclose your Personal Information for a business purpose to the following categories of third-parties:
- Our affiliates;
- Commercial providers;
- Subscribers and their partners;
- Service providers and other third parties we use to support our business, including without limitation those performing core services (such as billing, credit card processing, customer support services, customer relationship management, accounting, auditing, administering sweepstakes, surveys, advertising and marketing, analytics, email and mailing services, data storage, and security) related to the operation of our business and/or the Services, and making certain functionalities available to our Users;
- Third-parties to whom you or your agents authorize us to disclose your Personal Information in connection with the Services we provide to you.
We may disclose your Personal Information for legal reasons. Specifically, we will share Personal Information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Digital Pharmacist if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
- meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
- enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
- detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
- protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Digital Pharmacist, our Users or the public as required or permitted by law;
- for any other purpose disclosed when you provide the information; and
- when we obtain your consent to do so.
We attempt to notify Users about legal demands for their personal data when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. We may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand.
We may disclose your Personal Information in the event of a business transfer. If we establish a new related entity, are acquired by or merged with another organization, or if substantially all of our assets are transferred to another organization, Personal Information about our Users would likely be a transferred business asset. In the event that Digital Pharmacist itself or substantially all of our assets are acquired, Personal Information about our users may be one of the transferred assets.
We may also share anonymous information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) for other business purposes. For instance, we may share aggregate reports with interested third-parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain Services or for our Sites or those of our partners.
Sale of Personal Information
In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have not sold any Personal Information.
How We Protect Personal Information
Digital Pharmacist maintains administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect Personal Information and other information against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. For example, we use commercially reasonable security measures such as encryption, firewalls, and Secure Socket Layer software (SSL) or hypertext transfer protocol secure (HTTPS) to protect Personal Information.
Digital Pharmacist collects account information for payment or credit, and Digital Pharmacist will use the information only to complete the task for which the account information was offered.
Our Opt-in/Opt-out Policy
We currently provide the following opt-out opportunities:
- At any time, you can follow a link provided in offers, newsletters or other email messages (except for e-commerce confirmation or service notice emails) received from us or a Digital Pharmacist Partner to unsubscribe from the service.
- At any time, you can reply or text “STOP” to (512) 714-9656 to opt-out of receiving SMS texts.
Our Sites are not intended for children under 16 years of age. We do not intentionally gather Personal information about visitors who are under the age of 13. If a child has provided us with Personal Information, a parent or guardian of that child may contact us to have the information deleted from our records. If you believe that we might have any information from a child under age 13 in an applicable jurisdiction, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected the Personal Information of a child under 13, or equivalent minimum age depending on jurisdiction, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
Your Rights and Choices
You may have certain rights relating to your Personal Information, subject to local data protection law. Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with choices about how we use your personal data. We also aim to provide you with access to your Personal Information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. Subject to applicable law, you may obtain a copy of Personal Information we maintain about you or you may update or correct inaccuracies in that information by contacting us. To help protect your privacy and maintain security, we will take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to the information. In addition, if you believe that Personal Information we maintain about you is inaccurate, subject to applicable law, you may have the right to request that we correct or amend the information by contacting us as indicated in the “How to Contact Us” section below.
Direct Marketing and “Do Not Track” Signals
Digital Pharmacist does not track its users over time and across third-party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third-party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your browser may include controls to block and delete cookies, web beacons and similar technologies, to allow you to opt out of data collection through those technologies.
California residents are entitled to contact us to request information about whether we have disclosed Personal Information to third-parties for the third-parties’ direct marketing purposes. Under the California “Shine the Light” law, California residents may opt-out of our disclosure of Personal Information to third-parties for their direct marketing purposes. You may choose to opt-out of the sharing of your Personal Information with third-parties for marketing purposes at any time by submitting a request to email@example.com. California users may request further information about our compliance with this law by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by writing to us at the address listed in the “How to Contact Us” section.

California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
Under the California Consumer Privacy Act, California residents have specific rights regarding their Personal Information. This section explains how California residents can exercise those rights and describes Californians’ rights.
Exercising Your Rights
Visitors and Subscribers Who Are California Residents Can:
- Submit a request to Digital Pharmacist via email at email@example.com.
- Call 877-959-7550 to submit a privacy request.
Fulfillment of Data Protection Requests
Upon receiving a request from a Visitor or Subscriber, we will confirm receipt of a Visitor or Subscribers request by email. To help protect the Visitor’s or Subscriber’s privacy and maintain security, we may take steps to verify the Visitor’s or Subscriber’s identity before granting the Visitor or Subscriber access to the information. In some instances, such as a request to delete Personal Information, we may first separately confirm that the Visitor or Subscriber would like for us to in fact delete their Personal Information before acting on the request.
We will fulfill requests within forty-five (45) days. If we require more time, we will inform the Visitor or Subscriber of the reason and extension period in writing. If the Visitor or Subscriber has an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If the Visitor or Subscriber does not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at the Visitor’s or Subscriber’s option.
In some cases our ability to uphold these rights for a Visitor or Subscriber may depend upon our obligations to process Personal Information for security, safety, fraud prevention reasons, compliance with regulatory or legal requirements, listed below, or because processing is necessary to deliver the services you have requested. Where this is the case, we will inform you of specific details in response to your request.
