The operation of this Site relies on information that is collected automatically and that is provided
AUTOMATIC INFORMATION COLLECTION
The Site may automatically collect certain non-identifiable information
regarding Web site users, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of
your Internet Service Provider, the date and time you access the Site, the Internet address of
the Web site from which you linked directly to the Site, the operating system you

is used for Web site and system administration purposes. Your non-identifiable information
may be disclosed to others and permanently archived for future use.
The Site may receive and store information when
you visit or shop with the Site. The Site may use "cookies," a technology that
installs a small amount of information in the form of text on a user's computer.
This text permits the Site to recognize future visits using that computer. Cookies

MEMBER PROVIDED INFORMATION (MPI)
This Site receives and stores information Members enter
or provide in various ways. Failing to provide information at
particular areas on the Site may limit your ability to take advantage of the Site's
unique features. The information you provide can help us to respond to your requests
and/or suggestions for improving the Site, customizing your experience,
establishing and improving communications with you and all of our Members.
TYP allows Members to modify and delete all MPI online or request removal and modification
by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with instructions on what information
to delete or modify.
Personally Identifiable Information (PII):
PII is considered to be any Member Provided Information
that would allow others to personally identify you. Names, street addresses, telephone numbers,
and e-mail addresses are considered personally identifiable because they might
allow other parties to identify you as an individual. However, demographic data such as age, sex, zip code,
and other such data are not as they only allow the indentification of groups.
Credit card numbers are 100% encrypted. Not even TYP managers or programmers are capable of decrypting your
credit card number. Only the credit card acceptance company is capable of reading the encrypted
credit card number. As such TYP personnel are unable to provide our Members with the credit card
numbers they use on the TYP websites (not even the last four digits) should they enquire.
Your personal information will never be disclosed to any third-party company or
mailing list without your consent except as provided herein. Track Your Plaque will
share and limit the dissemination of information only to third-parties such as those associated
with the fulfillment process of product orders or as required by law.
Health Information (HI):
Certain features of this Site make use of Member Provided Health Information.
This information is covered under strict HIPAA rules and is therefore held in the strictest confidence.
Under no circumstances will your Health Information be disclosed to any third party without your express
and informed consent.
Members who wish to participate in Track Your Plaque affiliated medical research or clinical trials that
require Health Information to be sent to third parties will be required to provide express consent to release
their Health Information. Such information will be identified by a code known only to Track Your Plaque
and will not contain any Personally Identifiable Information.
ADDITIONAL PRIVACY INFORMATION
If, in the future, there are bonafied opportunites to use Member information in a
manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify Members
via email. Members will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information
in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication
with the site, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted
and their personal information will not be used in this new manner.
Should material changes in our privacy practices occur we will post a prominent notice on this Site and/or
email Members who have opted to receive communications from us notifying
them of the changes in our privacy practices. It is recommended to check our Privacy
Statement periodically for updates.
