Meds Cafe does research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us upon sign up, during a promotion, from our server log files or from surveys. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analyzed on a depersonalized and aggregated basis. Meds Cafe may share this aggregated data with advertisers or business partners.
Who is collecting information?
When you are using the Site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Meds Cafe alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise. For example, some of Meds Cafe’ services are offered in conjunction with a partner company. In order to provide this cobranded service to you, it is necessary for us to share your personal information with our partner company. If data is being collected and/or maintained by any company other than Meds Cafe, you will be notified prior to the time of the data collection or transfer. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular service.
Promotions that run on the Site may be sponsored by companies other than Meds Cafe or may be cosponsored by Meds Cafe and another company. Some or all data collected during a promotion may be shared with the sponsor. If data will be shared, you will be notified prior to the time of data collection or transfer. You can decide not to participate in the promotion if you don’t want your data to be shared.
Please be aware that advertisers or third-party websites that have links on the Site may collect personally identifiable information about you. The information practices of those third parties linked to the Site are not covered by this privacy statement.
With whom does Meds Cafe share my information?
As a general rule, Meds Cafe will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below.

Some or all data collected during a Meds Cafe promotion may be shared with a sponsor. If personally identifying data about you will be shared, we will tell you before we collect or transfer the data.Many promotions offer opportunities to request additional information from sponsors. By requesting more information, you give Meds Cafe permission to transfer your personal information to the sponsor so they can fulfill your request. In many instances, only your email address will be shared. If more information will be shared with the sponsor, you will be notified prior to the transfer.

Meds Cafe does not receive, store, or maintain personal and financial information.
Third party providers have separate privacy and data collection practices. You should review these carefully. Meds Cafe has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies.
Third Party Data & Data in the Aggregate: Under confidentiality agreements, Meds Cafe may match user information with third party data. Also, Meds Cafe may disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, 45% of our users are female) in order to describe our services to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.
Other: Meds Cafe may also disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating Meds Cafe’ Terms and Conditions of Use or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Meds Cafe’ rights or property, other Site users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us at any time.
On some types of Meds Cafe promotions, we will ask for your email address in order to update you on your entries and status. When you participate in these types of promotions, you automatically receive promotion related email, unless you choose the no-email option that some promotions offer. Occasionally these promotion-related email messages may include targeted advertisements.
