Privacy Policy

HOMEROUNDS, LLC PRIVACY POLICY
(last updated MARCH 1, 2010)

This policy describes the types of information HomeRounds, LLC gathers from its users of the HomeRounds Web site at www.homerounds.com and how that information is used. Please read this policy carefully before you provide us with any personal information. If you have questions about this policy, please email us.

Information We Collect

When you visit our website, certain information is gathered and stored about your visit automatically. The information collected automatically is used primarily to analyze site and page visitation. HomeRounds, LLC will ask you for personal identification such as your login name and password when it is needed to access the members-only portion of this website or if you post anything on our website. If you choose to provide us with this and other personal information, it will be stored so that we can address your needs in a better manner. We also collect personal information which you may voluntarily provide through our contact forms on this website. The information collected in this manner may include such items as your name, home address, e-mail address and phone number.

How We Use The Information We Collect

We use the information we collect to help you:

  • find the most relevant information by organizing the Web site optimally
  • find relevant physician-related news and information via email (if you have registered your email address)

We may use certain information that you provide in order to present you with advertising that you may find interesting. This benefits both of us. It benefits us because advertising helps pay the bills, and we can charge our advertisers more if they know that their ads will be seen by somebody more likely to find them useful. It benefits you because you see advertising that may actually be interesting to you, rather than annoying.

Disclosure Of Information

HomeRounds, LLC does not rent or sell personal information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies, except when we have your consent to do so, as necessary to complete a transaction you have requested, for marketing purposes (unless you have chosen not to receive such communications, in certain business transactions), when required by law, or when permitted to protect our rights or property. We reserve the right to use in any manner and disclose any non-personal information that we collect including cookie and traffic data. We do not combine personal information with any of the non-personal information gathered on our site.

We may release personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order); to enforce or apply our policies; to initiate, render, bill, and collect for amounts owed to us; to protect our rights or property, or to protect our user from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, our site or services; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.

We may use third party service providers to assist us with the administration of the site or otherwise perform services on our behalf, including transaction processing and sending email. Such third parties may be supplied with or have access to your personal information solely to provide services to us or on our behalf.

Information about our users and the site is a business asset of HomeRounds, LLC. Therefore, information about our users, including personal information, will be disclosed as part of any merger or acquisition, creation of a separate business to provide the site, our services or fulfill products, sale or pledge of company assets as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company.
