Privacy Policy:

Gaia Health ("Gaia Health") operates Gaia-Health.com and may operate other websites. It is Gaia Health's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Gaia Health collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Gaia Health's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Gaia Health's visitors use its website. From time to time, Gaia Health may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Gaia Health also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Gaia-Health.com blogs/sites. Gaia Health only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Gaia Health's websites choose to interact with Gaia Health in ways that require Gaia Health to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Gaia Health gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at Gaia-Health.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Gaia Health are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Gaia Health collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Gaia Health. Gaia Health does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Gaia Health may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Gaia Health may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Gaia Health does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Gaia Health discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Gaia Health's behalf or to provide services available at Gaia Health's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Gaia Health's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Gaia Health will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Gaia Health discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Gaia Health believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Gaia Health, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Gaia Health website and have supplied your email address, Gaia Health may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Gaia Health and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Gaia Health takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Business Transfers

If Gaia Health, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Gaia Health goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Gaia Health may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer.
