PRIVACY POLICY

Note: This privacy policy covers online publications and supplements published and distributed by Oakstone Publishing, LLC dba Personal Best®. These publications include TopHealth® Online and Personal Best Healthlines Online as well as their respective Smart Moves Online Supplements.

Personal Best is committed to protecting your online privacy. We feel it is important for you to know how we handle the information we receive from you via the Internet. You can visit this site without revealing any personal information. However, you are required to provide an e-mail address if you choose to communicate directly with us.

Third-party links
Personal Best’s online publications and supplements may contain links to Web sites operated by third parties. Personal Best has no control over the privacy policies and practices of such third party sites, and if you have any concerns, you are urged to review the terms of those sites for more information about the policies applicable to those sites.

How we and our affiliates collect and use personal information

IP addresses
We collect and log the IP address of all visitors to our online publications and supplements. An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. IP addresses allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with one another. We collect IP address information so that we can properly administer our system and gather aggregate information about how our site is being used, including the pages visitors are viewing. To maintain your anonymity, we do not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information. We will use IP address information, however, to personally identify you in order to enforce our legal rights or when required to do so by law enforcement authorities.

Health tools information
You may need to provide personal information in order to use some of the health tools on our site. This information may include your answers to questions about your health status. We use this information to calculate de-identified aggregate reports and health risks. This information is not shared with your Employer as it is a personal self evaluation and is meant to provide feedback and positive health promotion to assist you individually. It is never shared with any third-party unless required by law.

Surveys
You may be asked to complete surveys when you visit one of Personal Best’s online publications or supplements. We use information from surveys to better understand the needs of our users and to gather information about wellness and health care trends and issues. We may share information from surveys with third parties who perform data management services for our site. Those third parties have agreed to keep all data from surveys confidential. Also, we may share information from surveys in a de-identified aggregate form with third parties with whom we have a business relationship.

What we provide to third parties
Except as noted above for surveys, Personal Best does not provide any third party access to your IP address and e-mail address.

We may provide third parties with aggregate statistics about our visitors, traffic patterns and related site information. These data reflect site-usage patterns gathered during visits to one of our sites each month, but they do not contain behavioral or identifying information about any individual unless that individual has given us permission to share that information.

Aggregate information
We use general traffic, site usage and length-of-stay information in reports to determine feature and story popularity as well as aggregate results from our online polls, surveys and assessments. This sort of information is shared only in aggregate and does not personally identify you.

How we use cookies
"Cookies" are small pieces of information that some Web sites store on your computer's hard drive when you visit them. Like many other Web sites, Personal Best’s online publications and supplements use cookies to provide us with information relating to the sources of our site traffic. Collecting this information, however, does not allow us to personally identify you.

Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies but allow you to modify security settings so that you can approve or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis. Our site requires that both cookies and JavaScript be enabled. If you reject cookies from our site, some parts of the site may not work properly for you.

Children's privacy
This site is intended for adults age 18 and older. It is not intended for or designed to attract people under the age of 18. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know to be under the age of 18.

E-mail communications and related services
E-mail communication that you send to us via the e-mail links on our site may be shared with a Customer Service representative, employee, medical expert or agent that is most able to address your inquiry. We make every effort to respond in a timely fashion once communications are received. Once we have responded to your communication, it is discarded or archived, depending on the nature of the inquiry.

The e-mail functionality on our site does not provide a completely secure and confidential means of communication. It's possible that your e-mail communication may be accessed or viewed by another Internet user while in transit to us. If you wish to keep your communication private, do not use our e-mail.

Complaint process
If you have a complaint or problem, you may e-mail us by clicking the "Contact us" link at the bottom of any page. Our Customer Service department will forward your complaint to the appropriate department for response or resolution.

Changes to our Privacy Policy
We will occasionally update this Privacy Policy. You will see the word "updated" followed by the date next to the Privacy Policy link near the bottom of all pages on the site. If the "updated" date has changed since you last visited, you're encouraged to review the policy to be informed of how this site is protecting and using your information.
