Health Mobius LLC, as developers and hosts for this website are sensitive to the expectations of privacy by our visitors and are committed to making sure your personal information remains confidential. Personal Information that you provide in the course of obtaining Services from us will not be disclosed, sold, or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties.
INFORMATION CATEGORIZED AS EITHER ANONYMOUS OR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE
Anonymous (or sometimes referred to as “aggregate”) information is information that cannot be traced back to a specific individual. For example, we know how many times our site and certain portions of our site is visited, but we do not know the names, e-mail addresses or gender of our visitors unless they specifically provide that information. We use this anonymous information to obtain a better understanding of how visitors use our website and to make decisions on how to improve it. Each time a visitor comes to our site, we collect some information in an effort to improve the overall quality of your online experience. We collect the visitor’s domain name (e.g. whether the user is logged on from yahoo.com, aol.com etc), referral data (e.g., the address of the last URL a user visited prior to clicking through to our website), and browser and platform type (e.g., a Netscape browser on a Macintosh platform). In addition to collecting these types of information, Health Mobius collects aggregate queries for internal reporting. We also count, track, and aggregate the visitor’s activity into our analysis of general traffic flows at our site (e.g. tracking where traffic comes from, how traffic flows within our site, etc.).
Personally identifiable information is information you provide that lets us know specific facts about you so that we can respond to your requests. Depending on the portion of the website you visit and the information you provide, this information could range from your name, address and ZIP code, which you provide in order to receive information from us about certain services, to specific information that you provide when purchasing products or services. Personal information collected on our site is used only to allow us to fulfill your request for services. For instance, we collect personal information from you in order to complete transactions you request. The information you provide may be furnished to a third party in order to facilitate the transaction. Or, you may submit personal information to us in response to an employment opportunity. In each case, we use your personal information only for the purpose it is submitted to us, which may include providing it to third parties with whom we have relationships to deliver the information or services you request.
Health Mobius collects information about you through the information you provide to us. This Privacy Statement applies only to information collected through our website.

We may also share aggregated demographic information with independent contractors, service providers, consultants, and other partners. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We may also disclose personal information collected if necessary to fulfill our service obligations or if we are required to do so by law, or if in our good faith judgment, such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process.
Our website makes forums and bulletin boards available to our users. Please remember that any information disclosed in these areas become public information and that you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. Health Mobius reserves the right to disclose or use any user information which is already publicly available or which is posted by the user to a chat room, forum, bulletin board or other public forum.
We also may use the personal information you provide to us to send you information that we believe may be of interest to you, based on information you may have provided to us, including newsletters, information about new medical breakthroughs and other items related to Health Mobius and its services. You do have a right to opt out of receiving this information, as described below in “Your Opt Out Right.” You can visit our site without providing any personal information about yourself. However, there are a number of services that we provide which, if you wish to obtain the full benefit of those services, you must provide certain personal information.
If you chose to use an online service that asks for specific information (i.e. making an online purchase, subscribing to an e-newsletter, personalizing the content of the website, sending an email, participating in an online survey, completing any online transaction, or submitting information within an online service) more detailed data will be collected. It is voluntary for you to engage in these activities. If you choose to submit information to us, it will be transmitted in a secure fashion to our internal databases. It will only be used for the purpose it was provided, and will not be shared with another entity. The use of this website is voluntary, and if you do not wish to conduct electronic business with us, our staff is available to assist you by phone.
We take precautions to ensure your information remains confidential; however, you must keep in mind as you navigate through our website that any message you may send through the website or through email is not secure and may be susceptible to third party interception. As a result, you transmit information to us at your own risk. Select pages within our site, such as those dealing with eCommerce, may run in a secure-server environment. In locations like these, where our website asks you to enter sensitive information, that information is encrypted and is protected with the encryption software SSL. While on a secure page, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked. You will be alerted to a secure page by a padlock icon on your browser and/or warning pop-up window.
Health Mobius as developer and manager of this website, is committed to making sure that your personal information in our possession remains confidential. We have taken several steps to safeguard the integrity of our communications and computing infrastructure. Security measures have been integrated into the design, implementation, and day-to-day operations of the entire Health Mobius business environment as part of our continuing commitment to risk management. We employ special security measures to protect your information – including User ID and Password authentication, monitoring, program “time-outs,” and data encryption.
Encryption is the electronic “scrambling” of information – kind of like a secret code. This protects information from being intercepted by a third party. Health Mobius encrypts your Password in our computer systems. Health Mobius requires the use of an Internet browser with the ability to support 128-bit encryption.
Making sure your confidential information is secure is also an important responsibility for you. You’re responsible for ensuring your personal Password remains secure, so you should not reveal your Password to anyone. If you believe an unauthorized person has gained access to it, you should change it immediately. As part of good security practices, you should change your Password regularly and never walk away from your computer if you’re in the middle of a session. You should also review our Terms of Service for more information.
We may place small data files, called “cookies,” in your browser’s file storage area of your computer’s hard drive. Cookies are a standard Internet technology that allows us to both store and retrieve login information on a user’s system. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a site visitor’s computer to gather and keep track of information related to you. These cookies automatically identify your browser to our server whenever you interact with a service provided on our website.

Information collected through cookies is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
We collect and log IP addresses in order to analyze site visitation trends and administer the website. 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. IP address information allows us to properly administer our system and gather aggregate information on visitors to our website help diagnose problems with our servers, and how our site is being used, including the pages visitors are viewing in the aggregate. This aggregate information may be shared with third parties, such as our physicians, our suppliers and other businesses. To maintain your anonymity, we do not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information. In other words, IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
As indicated above, Health Mobius may use the information you provide to send you with information and materials that we think may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive any further information or materials from us, such as e-mails or newsletters, you have the right to opt out of such disclosure and additional use of such information.

In accordance with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), Health Mobius will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without parental consent. When we do receive information (with parental consent) from users under the age of 13, we will not share their personally identifiable information with third parties, regardless of their stated preference given at registration.
