What Personally Identifiable Information is Collected
Individuals that sign up to receive NeedyMeds' e-communications voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We may use this information for specific, limited purposes. You may always "opt out," either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages. You may do this by checking off the "unsubscribe" feature on emailings, or by emailing NeedyMeds with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also email us to review any personal information collected to request corrections. We will endeavor to respond to your email within 2 business days of receiving it.
How The Personally Identifiable Information is Stored
The individual's information is stored in a secure database accessed via FileMaker Pro. Employees are only able to access these files with a correct username and password, which can be reset by the server administrator if necessary. The physical server is located in a secure facility in California, and is accessed remotely via an encrypted connection.
NeedyMeds uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer www.needymeds.org, and for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic.
www.needymeds.org may use "cookie" messages to automatically help provide better services. They remind us who you are and your preferences for our website based on what you've done and told us before. The "cookie" is placed in your computer and is read when you come back to our website. Cookies let us take you to the information and features you're particularly interested in. They also let us track your usage of www.needymeds.org, so we know which parts of our sites are most popular. You can reject cookies or cancel them by instructing your Web browser accordingly.
How Your Information May Be Used
We use your personal information to provide you with personalized service; to send e-mail alerts to you; to answer your requests; etc. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from us. We may also use your information to track visitor of our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users' needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties. NeedyMeds' website administrator and IT staff have access to this information.
