Privacy Matters

We will never share your
information.

I’ve been looking for a single site that allows me to ask questions, or just talked about my many medical issues, I’ve finally found that site, Thanks MediFriends.

-John K.

It can be very frustrating sorting through all the medical gobbledygook. At least here, people understand what I’m feeling.

- Arron G.

During the pandemic, I felt very much alone. Now that I’ve joined my Circle, I don’t feel that way.

- Stephanie W.

Medifriends, Inc. ("Medifriends", "we", "us", or "our") respects your privacy. We developed this Privacy Policy to explain how we collect, use, share, and protect Personal Information (defined below), and your choices about the collection and use of Personal Information. This Privacy Policy applies to Personal Information collected or processed through https://medifriends.com and any other MediFriends-operated website, app, or social media page(s) that links to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the "Site").

  1. What is Personal Information?
  2. "Personal Information" is information that identifies or relates to a particular individual. Examples of Personal Information include, among others, name, email address, phone number, mailing address, and online identifiers.
  3. How We Use Personal Information
    We use Personal Information the following purposes:
    1. Providing our Site to you;
    2. Analyzing, administering, and improving the Site;
    3. Enabling secure use of the Site;
    4. Sending information and promotional materials;
    5. Protecting our rights or our property;
    6. Meeting legal obligations;
    7. For other purposes related to the reasons for which you provide Personal Information.
  4. Types of Personal Information We Collect and Use
    1. Information that You Provide Us

      In various places on the Site, we request information from you via forms. The exact information we need to collect (including Personal Information) will depend on the purpose of the form. For example, if you use the form on our "Contact Us" page, we collect your username, email address, and message. We will indicate on the form whether a particular field of information is mandatory or optional. If you choose not to provide certain information, we may not be able to provide requested services.

    2. Information We Automatically Collect from You
      We collect the following types of information automatically through your use of the Site:
      1. Cookies, Device Identifiers, and Similar technologies

        When you use or access the Site, we and our service providers use cookies, device identifiers, and similar technologies such as pixels, web beacons, and local storage to collect information about how you use the Site. We process the information collected through such technologies, which may include or be combined with Personal Information, to help operate certain features of the Site, to enhance your experience through personalization, and to help us better understand the features of the Site that you and other users are most interested in.
        Most browsers provide you with the ability to block, delete, or disable cookies, and your mobile device may allow you to disable transmission of unique identifiers and location data. If you choose to reject cookies or block device identifiers, some features of the Site may not be available or some functionality may be limited or unavailable. Please review the help pages of your browser or mobile device for assistance with changing your settings.
        We do not include any features on the Service that allow a third party to track you, in personally identifiable form, on our Service. Therefore, we do not respond to Do Not Track ("DNT") signals sent to us by your browser at this time. To learn more about how DNT works, please visit http://allaboutdnt.com/.

      2. Analytics

        To assist us with analyzing our website traffic through cookies and similar technologies, we use analytics services, including Google Analytics. For more information on Google Analytics's processing of your information, please see "How Google uses data when you use our partners' sites or apps."

      3. Log File Information

        When you use our Site, our servers automatically record information, including your Internet Protocol address ("IP Address"), browser type, referring URLs (e.g., the site you visited before coming to our Site), domain names associated with your internet service provider, information on your interaction with the Site, and other such information (collectively, "Log File Information"). We may also collect similar information from emails sent to you which then help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients.
        We use Log File Information collected from our implementation of the Site to help secure the Site by identifying potential threats and vulnerabilities and in analyzing the effectiveness of our Site to improve the Site's function and content.

  5. Disclosure of Personal Information
    We will not disclose Personal Information except as set forth in this Privacy Policy or with your consent. Specifically, we do not sell Personal Information or disclose it to advertisers. This section describes to whom we disclose Personal Information and for what purposes:
    1. Our Service Providers. We employ service providers to perform tasks on our behalf and to assist us in operating the Site or providing our products and services. For example, we engage third parties to provide analytics services and Site-infrastructure hosting. We take commercially reasonable steps to help ensure our service providers provide at least the same level of protection for Personal Information as we do.
    2. Companies Involved in Mergers and Acquisitions Transactions. If we sell or otherwise transfer part or the whole of our business or assets to another organization (e.g., in the course of a transaction like a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, or liquidation), any information collected through the Site, including Personal Information, may be among the items sold or transferred.
    3. Law Enforcement, Government Agencies, and Courts. We may disclose Personal Information at the request of law enforcement or government agencies or in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process to establish, protect, or exercise our rights or to defend against a legal claim or as otherwise required or allowed by law, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of any other person. We may also disclose Personal Information to investigate or prevent a violation by you of any contractual or other relationship with us or your illegal or harmful activity.
  6. How We Protect the Confidentiality of Personal Information

    We protect the confidentiality and security of information we obtain in the course of business. We use commercially reasonable safeguards, such as industry-standard encryption technology, to help keep the information collected through the Site secure.
    Despite these efforts to store Personal Information in a secure operating environment, we cannot guarantee the security of Personal Information during its transmission or its storage on our systems. Further, while we attempt to ensure the integrity and security of Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third parties such as hackers from illegally obtaining access to Personal Information. We do not represent or warrant that Personal Information about you will be protected against, loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties.
    Please note that this Site contains links, including advertisements, to other Internet websites that are NOT maintained by Medifriends. While we do not disclose your Personal Information to advertisers, we do not control the privacy or security practices of third parties, or the locations where they process Personal Information. You should read the privacy and security policies of the other sites, as their practices may differ from ours.

  7. Accessing, Updating, or Deleting Personal Information

    If you would like to otherwise access, update, or delete Personal Information about you, you may submit a request to support@thinkzag.com. We will promptly review all such requests in accordance with applicable law.

  8. Opting Out of Receiving Electronic Communications

    With your permission, we may send notifications, promotions, or other information via email or text message ("Communications"). You may choose to stop receiving Communications by indicating your preference in your account profile or settings. Please note that certain Site-related Communications are necessary for the proper functioning and use of the Site (e.g., to verify the phone number associated with your account) and you may not have the ability to opt out of those Communications.

  9. Personal Information Transferred from the U.S.

    If you are using the Site from outside the United States, please be aware that Personal Information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States. Although we take steps to provide adequate safeguards, the data protection laws of the United States might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. By using the Site, you consent to your information being transferred to the United States for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

  10. Children's Privacy Children are expressly prohibited from using the Site. We do not knowingly collect or solicit any Personal Information from children. In the event that we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child, we will promptly take steps to delete that information.
  11. Other Websites and Sites, Including Social Media We are not responsible for the practices employed by any websites, advertisements, or services linked to or from our Site, including the information or content contained within them. A link to a third party's website should not be construed as an endorsement. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing Personal Information to third parties.
  12. Changes to Our Privacy Policy We may modify or update this Privacy Policy from time to time, so please review it periodically. We may provide you with notice of material changes to the Privacy Policy as appropriate under the circumstances. Unless otherwise indicated, any changes to this Privacy Policy will apply immediately upon posting to the Site.
