PLEASE READ THE COOK­IE STATE­MENT CARE­FUL­LY BEFORE USING OR OBTAIN­ING ANY MATE­RI­ALS, INFOR­MA­TION, PROD­UCTS OR SER­VICES THROUGH THE SER­VICES. BY ACCESS­ING THE SER­VICES, YOU AGREE TO ACCEPT, WITH­OUT LIM­I­TA­TION OR QUAL­I­FI­CA­TION, THIS COOK­IE BELOW. We reserve the right to change, update, or cor­rect any of this Cook­ie State­ment or any infor­ma­tion con­tained in the Ser­vices at any time with­out notice by post­ing an amend­ed state­ment to the Ser­vices.

In such cir­cum­stances, we will treat such linked infor­ma­tion as Pro­tect­ed Health Infor­ma­tion on a going-for­ward basis.

The Infor­ma­tion We Collect

Our web servers auto­mat­i­cal­ly cap­ture your domain name, the IP address of the web page from which you enter our Ser­vice, brows­er type, the pages you vis­it on our Ser­vice, the amount of time you spend here and oth­er rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion about your vis­it. We do not col­lect any infor­ma­tion that can reveal your per­son­al iden­ti­ty unless you vol­un­tar­i­ly pro­vide it when you reg­is­ter to use inter­ac­tive fea­tures of the Ser­vice. The infor­ma­tion we col­lect is not part of any des­ig­nat­ed record set.

If you use the fea­tures on this web­site or on the web­sites our busi­ness part­ners, you are​“opt­ing in” and agree to our col­lec­tion of infor­ma­tion as described above. You may​“opt in” or​“opt out” each time you access the web­site. If you​“opt out,” you can­not use the inter­ac­tive features.

Use of the Infor­ma­tion this Ser­vice Gathers/​Tracks

Any per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion you give us will be used only as per­mit­ted by law, includ­ing to pro­vide the prod­uct, ser­vice or infor­ma­tion you have request­ed or to sup­port the pro­grams for which you reg­is­tered. Unless you express­ly con­sent to let us do so, your per­­son­al­­ly-iden­ti­­fi­able infor­ma­tion, includ­ing your e‑mail address, will not be sold, rent­ed, licensed, or oth­er­wise shared with third par­ties. Addi­tion­al­ly, unless you express­ly pro­vide your con­sent or to ful­fill a request from you — We won’t send you any unso­licit­ed e‑mail.

Like most com­pa­nies, DMG uses cook­ies (and sim­i­lar tech­nolo­gies) on our web­site and mobile app to facil­i­tate and improve your dig­i­tal expe­ri­ence. As fur­ther described here­in, Cook­ies are small pieces of infor­ma­tion that are stored to your device when you vis­it our web­site or web­pages with­in our mobile app. Data col­lect­ed dur­ing the use of the mobile appli­ca­tion is stored with­in the appli­ca­tion. The data col­lect­ed either through cook­ies and/​or the mobile appli­ca­tion includes but is not lim­it­ed to, log­ging infor­ma­tion regard­ing the char­ac­ter­is­tics or usage of your device, sys­tem and appli­ca­tion soft­ware, user loca­tion data, your pref­er­ences and search queries. Col­lect­ing this data also enables us to bet­ter sup­port the prod­uct and opti­mize per­son­al­ized con­tent. Cook­ies may also be used to make adver­tis­ing mes­sages more rel­e­vant to you. The non-per­­son­al­­ly iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion we gath­er in aggre­gate form may be used to improve our Ser­vice, and we may share that infor­ma­tion with busi­ness part­ners, third-par­­ty ven­dors work­ing on our behalf, or our health and well­ness spon­sors. The use and col­lec­tion of infor­ma­tion by these third-par­­ty ven­dors is gov­erned by their respec­tive pri­va­cy state­ments and is not cov­ered by this Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy or the DMG Terms of Use To pro­tect your infor­ma­tion, we encour­age you to learn about the pri­va­cy poli­cies of those third par­ties. Third-par­­ty ven­dors that DMG has a cur­rent busi­ness rela­tion­ship with include the enti­ties list­ed here:

Google Ana­lyt­ics. We use Google Ana­lyt­ics for track­ing queries sub­mit­ted to their search engines. We also use Google’s Dou­bleClick tech­nol­o­gy for track­ing our adver­tise­ments, enabling​“tell-a-friend” social media func­tion­al­i­ty, and pro­vid­ing us with the con­tact infor­ma­tion of users who sub­mit a request for addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion about our ser­vices via click-through adver­tise­ments. View Google’s pri­va­cy pol­i­cy.

This list may be updat­ed and mod­i­fied from time to time by DMG in its sole and absolute dis­cre­tion. Infor­ma­tion that you vol­un­tar­i­ly pro­vid­ed will be main­tained as long as DMG deems appro­pri­ate to ful­fill the pur­pose for which you pro­vid­ed the infor­ma­tion, until you request us to remove it, or for as long as per­mit­ted under applic­a­ble law.

We may offer sweep­stakes, con­tests, and oth­er pro­mo­tions (any, a​“Pro­mo­tion”) through the Ser­vice that may require reg­is­tra­tion. By par­tic­i­pat­ing in a Pro­mo­tion, you are agree­ing to offi­cial rules that gov­ern that Pro­mo­tion, which may con­tain spe­cif­ic require­ments of you, includ­ing, allow­ing the spon­sor of the Pro­mo­tion to use your name, voice and/​or like­ness in adver­tis­ing or mar­ket­ing asso­ci­at­ed with the Pro­mo­tion. If you choose to enter a Pro­mo­tion, per­son­al infor­ma­tion may be dis­closed to third par­ties or the pub­lic in con­nec­tion with the admin­is­tra­tion of such Pro­mo­tion, includ­ing, in con­nec­tion with win­ner selec­tion, prize ful­fill­ment, and as required by law or per­mit­ted by the Promotion’s offi­cial rules, such as on a win­ners list.

To the fullest extent per­mit­ted by applic­a­ble law, we may also dis­close your infor­ma­tion if we believe in good faith that doing so is nec­es­sary or appro­pri­ate to: (i) pro­tect or defend the rights, safe­ty or prop­er­ty of DMG or third par­ties (includ­ing through the enforce­ment of this Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy, and oth­er applic­a­ble agree­ments and poli­cies); or (ii) com­ply with legal and reg­u­la­to­ry oblig­a­tions (e.g., pur­suant to law enforce­ment inquiries, sub­poe­nas or court orders). To the fullest extent per­mit­ted by applic­a­ble law, we have com­plete dis­cre­tion and with­out notice to you to elect whether or not to make such dis­clo­sures, and to con­test or not con­test requests for such disclosures.

Third Par­ty Ana­lyt­ics Providers and Ad Servers

We may use third-par­­ty ven­dors to per­form cer­tain ser­vices on behalf of us or the Ser­vice, such as host­ing the Ser­vice, design­ing and/​or oper­at­ing the Service’s fea­tures, track­ing the Service’s activ­i­ties, uti­liza­tion of shar­ing tech­nol­o­gy that allows users to share con­tent on this Site through social media, and ana­lyt­ics. We may pro­vide these ven­dors with access to user infor­ma­tion or they may direct­ly col­lect your infor­ma­tion to car­ry out the ser­vices they are per­form­ing for you or for us. Third-par­­ty ana­lyt­ics and oth­er ser­vice providers may set and access their own track­ing tech­nolo­gies on your device and they may oth­er­wise col­lect or have access to infor­ma­tion about you, poten­tial­ly includ­ing per­son­al infor­ma­tion, about you. We are not respon­si­ble for those third par­ty tech­nolo­gies or activ­i­ties aris­ing out of them.

We may also work with cer­tain third par­ties to pro­vide us with infor­ma­tion regard­ing traf­fic on the Ser­vice to serve adver­tise­ments else­where online, and to pro­vide us with infor­ma­tion regard­ing the use of our web­site or ser­vices and the effec­tive­ness of our adver­tise­ments. These third par­ties may auto­mat­i­cal­ly col­lect infor­ma­tion about you using their own cook­ies, pix­els or oth­er tech­nolo­gies, or may oth­er­wise col­lect or have access to, infor­ma­tion about your vis­its to this and oth­er web­sites, your IP address, your ISP, the brows­er you use to vis­it our web­site and oth­er usage infor­ma­tion. Infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed may be used, among oth­er things, to deliv­er adver­tis­ing tar­get­ed to your inter­ests and to bet­ter under­stand the usage and vis­i­ta­tion of our web­site and the oth­er sites tracked by these third parties.

The Cook­ie Statement

When you vis­it the Ser­vice, we may place a tem­po­rary​“ses­sion” or a per­ma­nent cook­ie on your com­put­er that will allow us to cus­tomize and enhance your expe­ri­ence at the Ser­vice, make improve­ments to our Ser­vice, or to report Ser­vice activ­i­ty. Our ses­sion cook­ies are not per­ma­nent­ly stored on your com­put­er and expire when you leave. Per­ma­nent cook­ies are issued to Ser­vice vis­i­tors who link the Ser­vice from a search engine and are used only to per­mit DMG to attract qual­i­fied users to the Ser­vice. Our cook­ies are not used to send spam. We store cook­ie infor­ma­tion in aggre­gate form and use the aggre­gate infor­ma­tion to make improve­ments to the Ser­vice or in inter­nal reports on Ser­vice activ­i­ty. You may opt out of allow­ing cook­ies to be placed on your com­put­er. Refus­ing cook­ies dis­ables our abil­i­ty to include infor­ma­tion about your vis­it in our reg­u­lar mon­i­tor­ing of Ser­vice traffic.

Cook­ies and Sim­i­lar Tech­nol­o­gy Policy

What are cookies?
A cook­ie is a small amount of data sent from a web serv­er to your brows­er and stored on your com­put­er or mobile device’s hard dri­ve while you are view­ing the web­site. We may use both ses­sion cook­ies (which expire once you close your web brows­er) and per­sis­tent cook­ies (which stay on your com­put­er until you delete them) to pro­vide you with a more per­son­al and inter­ac­tive expe­ri­ence on our web­site. This type of infor­ma­tion is col­lect­ed to make the Ser­vice more use­ful to you and to tai­lor your expe­ri­ence with us to meet your spe­cial inter­ests and needs. We use and store this infor­ma­tion to pro­vide you with more per­son­al­ized and cus­tomized online ser­vices and to make our site more con­ve­nient, use­ful, valu­able and appeal­ing to you.

We use two broad cat­e­gories of cook­ies: (1) first par­ty cook­ies, served direct­ly by us to your com­put­er or mobile device, which we use to rec­og­nize your com­put­er or mobile device when it revis­its our web­site; and (2) third par­ty cook­ies, which are served by ser­vice providers on our web­site, and can be used by such ser­vice providers to rec­og­nize your com­put­er or mobile device when it vis­its oth­er websites.

Cook­ies we Use

The Ser­vice may use the fol­low­ing types of cook­ies for the pur­pos­es set out below:

TYPE OF COOKIE

PUR­POSE

Essen­tial Cookies

These cook­ies are essen­tial to pro­vide you with ser­vices avail­able through our web­site and to enable you to use some of its fea­tures. With­out these cook­ies, the ser­vices that you have asked for can­not be pro­vid­ed, and we only use these cook­ies to pro­vide you with those services.

Func­tion­al­i­ty Cookies

These cook­ies allow our web­site to remem­ber choic­es you make when you use the Ser­vice, such as remem­ber­ing your lan­guage pref­er­ences, remem­ber­ing your login details and remem­ber­ing the changes you make on oth­er parts of our web­site, which you can cus­tomize. The pur­pose of these cook­ies is to pro­vide you with a more per­son­al expe­ri­ence and to avoid you hav­ing to re-enter your pref­er­ences every time you vis­it the Service.

Ana­lyt­ics and Per­for­mance Cookies

These cook­ies are used to col­lect infor­ma­tion about traf­fic to our web­site and how users use the Ser­vice. The infor­ma­tion gath­ered does not iden­ti­fy any indi­vid­ual vis­i­tor. The infor­ma­tion is aggre­gat­ed and anony­mous. The infor­ma­tion gath­ered may include the num­ber of vis­i­tors to the Ser­vice, the web­sites that referred them to our web­site, the pages they vis­it­ed on our web­site, what time of day they vis­it­ed our web­site, whether they have vis­it­ed our web­site before, and oth­er sim­i­lar information.
We use Google Ana­lyt­ics for this pur­pose. Google Ana­lyt­ics uses its own cook­ies. You can find out more infor­ma­tion about Google Ana­lyt­ics cook­ies here and about how Google pro­tects your data here. You can pre­vent the use of Google Ana­lyt­ics relat­ing to your use of our Site by down­load­ing and installing the brows­er plu­g­in avail­able here.

Tar­get­ed and Adver­tis­ing Cookies

These cook­ies track your brows­ing habits to enable us to show adver­tis­ing that is more like­ly to be of inter­est to you. These cook­ies use infor­ma­tion about your brows­ing his­to­ry to group you with oth­er users who have sim­i­lar inter­ests. Based on that infor­ma­tion, third par­ty adver­tis­ers can place cook­ies to enable them to show adver­tise­ments that we think will be rel­e­vant to your inter­ests while you are on third par­ty websites.

Social Media Cookies

These cook­ies are used when you vis­it any pub­lic DMG page. A social net­work­ing web­site such as Face­book, Twit­ter or LinkedIn can record that you have vis­it­ed this page and could use this infor­ma­tion to serve you rel­e­vant ads that are in com­pli­ance with plat­form adver­tis­ing policies

Dis­abling cookies
If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to accept cook­ies from our ser­vices for any of the pur­pos­es described above, then you can typ­i­cal­ly instruct your brows­er, by chang­ing its set­tings, to remove or stop accept­ing cook­ies or to prompt you before accept­ing a cook­ie from the web­sites you vis­it. In order to do this, con­sult your browser’s tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion (instruc­tions are usu­al­ly locat­ed with­in the​“set­tings,”​“help”​“tools” or​“edit” facil­i­ty). Many browsers are set to accept cook­ies until you change your settings.

If you do not accept our cook­ies, you may expe­ri­ence some incon­ve­nience or not be able to use all por­tions of the Ser­vice or all func­tion­al­i­ty of the Service.

Pix­el tags

In addi­tion, we may use pix­el tags (also referred to as clear GIFs, web bea­cons, or web bugs) on the Ser­vice to track the actions of users on web­site. Pix­el tags are tiny graph­ic images with a unique iden­ti­fi­er, sim­i­lar in func­tion to cook­ies, which are used to track online move­ments of web users. In con­trast to cook­ies, which are stored on a user’s com­put­er hard dri­ve, pix­el tags are embed­ded invis­i­bly in web pages. Pix­el tags also allow us to send email mes­sages in a for­mat users can read, and they tell us whether emails have been opened, for exam­ple, to ensure that we are send­ing mes­sages that are of inter­est to our users. We may use this infor­ma­tion to reduce or elim­i­nate mes­sages sent to a user.

Do not track signals
Some inter­net browsers may be con­fig­ured to send​“Do Not Track” sig­nals to the online ser­vices that you vis­it. We cur­rent­ly do not respond to do not track sig­nals. To find out more about​“Do Not Track,” please vis­it www​.allaboutd​nt​.com

Sites We Link To

If you choose to use any of the links we pro­vide to providers, spon­sors, and oth­er third par­ty resources, you will be leav­ing our Ser­vice and going to a new web site. While we take care in choos­ing the con­tent and links on our web­site, we accept no lia­bil­i­ty what­so­ev­er for third par­ty sites. Pro­tec­tion of your pri­va­cy at those oth­er sites will be gov­erned by the pri­va­cy pol­i­cy at that site. We’ve tak­en spe­cial care select­ing the com­pa­nies that are acces­si­ble through our web­site to try to ensure that they respect your pri­va­cy as we do, but please take the time to read the pri­va­cy poli­cies at their sites.

What Should Par­ents Know About Children?

We under­stand the impor­tance of pro­tect­ing children’s pri­va­cy in the inter­ac­tive world. We do not use the Ser­vice to know­ing­ly col­lect per­son­al infor­ma­tion from chil­dren under the age of thir­teen (13) with­out parental con­sent. If you are a child under 13 years of age, you are not per­mit­ted to use the Ser­vice and should not send any infor­ma­tion about your­self to us through the Service.

In the event that we become aware that we have col­lect­ed Per­son­al Infor­ma­tion from any child, we will dis­pose of that infor­ma­tion in accor­dance with the Children’s Online Pri­va­cy Pro­tec­tion Act and oth­er applic­a­ble laws and reg­u­la­tions. If you are a par­ent or guardian and you believe that your child under the age of 13 has pro­vid­ed us with infor­ma­tion with­out your con­sent, please con­tact us at 1−855−269−2427, and we will take rea­son­able steps to ensure that such infor­ma­tion is delet­ed from our files.

Changes to this Policy

If we make any changes to this Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy, we will let you know the effec­tive date of the changes and you can con­tact our Web­mas­ter if you would like to know more about what’s new. If you have any ques­tions or com­ments or receive any unwant­ed e‑mail from this Ser­vice, please con­tact our Web­mas­ter via e‑mail at webmaster@​dupagemd.​com.
