Website Not For Use By Minors
This website and our Services are not directed to nor intended for use by minors under the age of eighteen (18) years. You should not use this website or our Services or send any Personal Information about yourself to us if you are under age 18 or if you are subject to any court-ordered or court imposed disability, guardianship, conservatorship or related restriction(s).
Personal Information We Collect and Use
We define “Personal Information,” generally, as data that is unique to an individual or that is otherwise identifiable to or with an individual. For example, your name, address, telephone number, member ID, date of birth, medical information and payment information would all be classified as Personal Information.
We only collect Personal Information that you disclose to us by use of the Services. If you provide Personal Information or other information by email, such information may be shared with and used by such individuals within our Absolutely Thin and its affiliates as we deem appropriate.
We fully comply with all United States HIPAA (“Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act”) requirements regarding your Personal Information.
Absolutely Thin will not sell, license, transmit or disclose your Personal Information unless (1) it is required or permitted by law; (2) is expressly authorized by you either verbally, in writing or by electronic means or (3) is necessary to enable Absolutely Thin contractors, affiliates or agents to perform certain functions for us. With all such disclosures, we will abide by applicable law and will require the recipient to protect the information and use it only for the intended purpose.
Website tracking on our website does not provide us with personal information about our site visitors. However, the program does gather the following technical information about each visit, none of which can be used to determine personal information about a website visitor: internet service provider name, browser type, and internet protocol (IP) address.
How We Collect Your Personal Information
We only collect information that you have voluntarily disclosed to us or that is otherwise disclosed to us within the course of evaluation and treatment if you become a patient. However we may have access to and may utilize any information about you that is otherwise available to the general public.
When you visit our website, we may place a “cookie” on your computer to track your visit. That cookie is nothing more than a small data file that can only be read by our website. In effect, it is an identifier that allows our website to know who you are and to keep your information so as to interact with our website. This helps us to better understand your use of our website. In turn, we can make changes that will allow our website to better meet your needs.
How We Share Your Information with Third Parties
We do not use third party vendors or others to assimilate or maintain your Personal Information and we do not share your Personal Information unless you request that we do so. For example, we share certain Personal Information with our medical personnel and with a pharmacy of your choosing if you join our program and are thereby placed on medications to assist you with weight loss and healthy weight management. We also share such information as a part of medication refills or if you transfer pharmacies or if you request reassignment to another medical care provider within our network. We do not sell your information at any time to any one for any reason. However please note that if you choose to send Personal Information by email you accept the risk that such information may not be secure and that an unintended third party may intercept and use your Personal Information, despite our reasonable efforts to the contrary. You also agree that if you participate in any Absolutely Thin chat room, video conference, seminar, email discussion or other activity in which you may choose to share information about yourself, that such use by you may compromise your Personal Information and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Absolutely Thin, its affiliates, contractors, employees, members, officers, agents and assigns to the maximum degree allowed by law.
Links to Other Websites
We do not provide links to other websites.
We do not accept advertising nor do we share information with advertisers.
How We Protect Your Personal Information and Notification to You if Data is Breached
The internet is never 100% secure. So regardless of our reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Information and to insure you a pleasant experience with our website, mishaps can occur. We are not responsible for viruses, hackers or other technology matters beyond our reasonable control. Nor can we or do we promise or guarantee that our website will always be fully functional or that it will perform to your personal satisfaction.
Ability to Access, Update and Correct Personal Information
This website allows you to update or modify certain aspects of your information once you have an account with us. If you are unable to utilize those features for any reason, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (email) or by telephone at (972) 934-3231.
Retention of Personal Information
We retain all Personal Information for the time and in the manner required by law. But as a practical matter, we purge Personal Information of those individuals who are no longer patients on a scheduled basis of not less than seven years.
All information provided on this website is strictly provided on an “as is, where is, with all faults assumed by the user” basis, without warranty of any kind, whether express or implied, to the maximum degree allowed by law. By using this website you agree and consent to this Disclaimer. Some jurisdictions do not allow for the exclusion of certain warranties so such exclusion(s) may not apply to you.
The data set forth herein is for any informational purposes only. We make no warranty that the information is error free. If we direct you to another website at any time, for any reason, Absolutely Thin accepts no responsibility for the content, products or services provided at the non-Absolutely Thin locations.
Liability and Express Waiver; Legal Matters
To the maximum degree allowed by law, Absolutely Thin is not liable to any party for any direct, indirect, actual, special or consequential damages arising from use of this website or any linked or referred-to website. This Limitation includes but is not limited to any damage to computer or technology equipment, actual damages of every kind and character, loss of profits, business interruption, loss of programs, data, software and digital information of all kinds, even of we are expressly advised of the possibility or likelihood of such damages. By use of the Services, you expressly waive all such liability and damages to the maximum degree allowed by law.
