Privacy Policy

Daily Remedy understands how important the privacy of personal information is to our users. This Privacy Policy will tell you what information we collect about you and about your use of Daily Remedy and its services. It will explain the choices you have about how your personal information is used and how we protect that information. We urge you to read this Privacy Policy carefully.

This Privacy Policy applies to websites owned and operated by Daily Remedy that are intended for use by consumers (non-professionals) for non-commercial personal, family, or household purposes, including Daily Remedy.com, edicineNet.com, RxList.com, OnHealth.com, and eMedicineHealth.com and including the mobile optimized versions of these sites and our Mobile Device Applications or “Apps” (we refer to these sites and Apps collectively as the “Daily Remedy Sites”). We refer to the Daily Remedy Sites and Apps, along with the information and services ade available to you through the Daily Remedy Sites and Apps, as the “Services.”

This Privacy Policy also applies to the consumer-facing version of the Daily Remedy Health Manager Product. However, if you are an employee or health plan member who has enabled access to your health record at Daily emedy.com by registering at your employer’s or health plan’s website, the privacy policy applicable to our information at your employer’s or health plan’s website remains applicable to your personal health record at Daily Remedy.com. If your employer or health plan account is no longer made available to you by your employer or health plan, you will continue to have access to your health information from Daily Remedy.com, using the same username and password, but will be subject to this Privacy Policy.

Except where noted, statements in this Privacy Policy with respect to the Daily Remedy Sites also apply to the Apps. If you do not want us to collect, use or disclose information about you and your use of the Services as described in this Privacy Policy, then you should not use the Services. By using the Services, you must agree to the Daily Remedy Terms of Use, which is the contract between us and users of the Services. By accepting the Daily Remedy Terms of Use, you confirm that you have read and understood this Privacy Policy and you acknowledge that we will store, use and otherwise process your information in the United States where we are located.

When you use the Services, we collect information as follows:

Registration

While you may use most of the Services without registering, certain Services do require that you register with Daily Remedy for them to function properly. If you choose to register or update an existing account with Daily Remedy or access certain Services, you may be required to provide certain personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number, gender, email address and date of birth, and a username and password to access your Daily Remedy account. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the personal information that you submit to Daily Remedy.

Interactive Services

Some of our Services, such as Daily Remedy Symptom Checker, are interactive and may request that you submit health-related information, along with other information such as your age and gender. You are not required to register with Daily Remedy to use Daily Remedy Symptom Checker and if you are registered with Daily Remedy, we do not associate information that you submit to the Symptom Checker with registration information that you have previously provided.

Email Newsletters

At registration and at various times as you use the Daily Remedy Sites, you will be given the option of providing us with personal information in order to receive informational/promotional newsletters – such as a newsletter relating to a specific health condition – via email from Daily Remedy and/or directly from third parties. From time to time Daily Remedy may offer users of third-party websites the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletters through those websites. If you elect to subscribe to one of our newsletters on a third-party website, the operator of that website will provide us with the personal information you have provided in connection with the subscription request, which we may use in accordance with this Privacy Policy as though you had provided it directly to Daily Remedy.

Email a Friend

If you use our Email a Friend service to tell a friend about a feature on a Daily Remedy Site or a newsletter, we will ask you for your name, your email address, and your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site using your name and email address as the “from” email address. Daily Remedy does not use your friend's email information for any other purpose. We will only use the information you provide to send the requested email to your friend.

Market Research

From time to time, Daily Remedy may conduct online research surveys on behalf of itself and third parties through email invitations, pop-up surveys, and online focus groups. When participating in a survey, we may require you to provide your location, age, and if there’s a sweepstake associated with the market research survey, your name, and contact information for purposes of sweepstakes administration. The information you submit in a survey may be used by Daily Remedy for research and measurement purposes, as described below, including to measure the effectiveness of content, advertising, or programs. The personal information you provide in connection with a sweepstakes entry will be used for the sole purpose of administering the sweepstakes and as required by applicable law. We will not knowingly invite individuals who are under the age of 13 to participate in market research surveys. Market research surveys conducted by or on behalf of Daily Remedy will contain a link to this Privacy Policy.

User Reviews and Other Public Forums

In connection with the use of our Physician Directory, users are able to submit provider reviews. Our reviews feature in the Physician Directory and are open to the public and should not be considered private.

Any information (including personal information) you share in any review, or other forum is by design open to the public and is not private. You should think carefully before posting any personal information in any public forum. What you post can be seen, disclosed to, or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways we cannot control or predict, including to contact you for unauthorized purposes. As with any public forum on any site, the information you post may also show up in third-party search engines.

Emails You Send to Daily Remedy

This Privacy Policy does not apply to information, content, business information, ideas, concepts, or inventions that you send to Daily Remedy by email. If you want to keep content or business information, ideas, concepts, or inventions private or proprietary, do not send them in an email to Daily Remedy.

Services and Device Information

When you access and use the Services, Daily Remedy automatically collects and stores in its server logs information from your browser or mobile device such as your IP address or unique device identifier, browser information (including referring URL), your preferences and settings, cookies and information about the content you have viewed and actions taken (e.g., search queries, ad engagement, clicks and the associated dates and times). Daily Remedy may also collect device-specific information when you install and use an App including your device model, operating system information, advertising ID (which is a unique, user-resettable identification number for advertising associated with a mobile device), and App version and usage information. When enabled by you, we collect precise location information provided by your mobile device, which you may disable through the device settings.

Precise Geolocation Data

When enabled by you, we collect precise location information provided by your mobile device, such as latitude and longitude. We do so to provide you with more relevant content including advertising based on your location. You may disable the collection and use of your location data through your device settings. To change location settings on your device, please refer to your device’s official knowledge base.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

We and our partners use cookies to collect information about your use of the Services. “Cookies” are small data files assigned to your browser when you visit a Daily Remedy Site that enables a recognition of your browser and collects and store information about your use of the Services, as described above. In addition to cookies, we and our partners use other tracking technologies that collect information about your use of the Services, including mobile identifiers and “web beacons” which are small graphic files (sometimes called “clear GIFs” or “web pixels”) embedded in a web page or email typically used to monitor activity and send relevant information back to a home server (which can belong to the host site, a network advertiser or some other third party). The information collected by such tracking technologies may be combined with other information that our partners have access to, including your name, email address, and physical address, so that we can send you materials, either electronically or by direct mail, that may be of interest to you.

We also work with third-party ad networks to display advertising on our Daily Remedy Sites and on third-party websites. Our ad network vendors use technologies to collect information about your activities on the Daily Remedy Sites and in our flagship Daily Remedy App to provide you cookie-based targeted advertising on our Daily Remedy Sites and on third-party websites based on your browsing activity and your interests. When you download and install one of our Apps onto your mobile device we assign a random number to your App installation. This number cannot be used to identify you personally, and we cannot identify you personally unless you choose to become a registered user of the App. Unlike cookies, the random number is assigned to your installation of the App itself and not a browser, because the App does not work through your browser. Therefore the random number cannot be removed through settings. If you do not want us to use the random number for the purposes for which we use cookies, please do not use the Apps. Our use of cookies and other tracking technologies on our mobile optimized sites and our flagship Daily Remedy App are similar to our use on our desktop sites.

Cross-Device Tracking

We and our service providers collect and store information about users' interactions with unaffiliated websites and applications that use our technologies, including cookies and similar tracking technologies. This allows us to infer the presence of a common user or household behind multiple devices. We do so in order to:

  • provide personalized advertising on each device that is inferred from the browsing
    patterns on all of the devices;
  • detect and prevent fraud;
  • allow users to use our service on one device and pick up seamlessly where they left
    off on another device;
  • limit the number of times a user is shown the same advertisement, across known or
    inferred devices

For information on your advertising choices and opt-out, please see the “Your Choices and Rights” section of this Privacy Notice.

How Information Collected About You Is Used

Information about your use of the Services may be used for the following purposes:

  • to provide, improve and create new Services,
  • to respond to your inquiries and to send you administrative communications about the Daily Remedy Sites and Services,
  • to obtain your feedback about the Daily Remedy Sites and Services,
  • to send you secure electronic messages and personalized emails pertaining to your interests as inferred from your use of the Services, including news, announcements, reminders, and opportunities from Daily Remedy,
  • to statistically analyze trends and user behavior and activity including how frequently areas of the Daily Remedy Sites are visited, how the Services are being used, and how many emails are received and opened,
  • to provide you and people with similar demographic characteristics and interests with more relevant content including advertising both on and off the Daily Remedy Sites and Apps,
  • to offer lead generation services,
  • to detect and defend against fraud and other threats to the Services and our users,
  • to identify issues with the Services,
  • to conduct research and measurement activities, including those described below, and
  • to administer your account.

In addition, Daily Remedy may use personal information about you for other purposes that are disclosed to you at the time we collect the information and/or with your consent.

Daily Remedy may combine your personal information and other information collected about your use of the Services, and also supplement with information from external sources for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. For example, information that Daily Remedy collects about you may be combined by Daily Remedy with other information available to Daily Remedy through third parties for research and measurement purposes, including measuring the effectiveness of content, advertising, or programs. This information from other sources may include age, gender, demographic, geography, personal interests, product purchase activity, or other information. We may report aggregate information, which is not able to be identified back to an individual user of the Daily Remedy Sites, to our current or prospective advertisers and other business partners.

Sharing Your Information

Companies and Contractors that Work with Daily Remedy

Daily Remedy works with third-party companies and contractors that help us provide the Services and otherwise assist in the operation of the Daily Remedy Sites and Apps, including those that provide services relating to technology, data analysis, research, email management and deployment, sweepstakes, and contest administration, advertising and marketing and/or content. If you are in the United States, we may also partner with certain service providers to better understand your experience on the Daily Remedy Sites, including technology that enables us to review and optimize the Services based on your interactions with certain pages (e.g., how much time you spend on which pages, which links you choose to click, what you do and don’t like, etc.) in an aggregated format. Daily Remedy contractors sometimes have limited access to your information in the course of providing products or services to Daily Remedy. We contractually require that our contractors not use or disclose your information for any purpose other than providing the limited service or function for Daily Remedy.

Third-Party Advertisers and Third-Party Websites

We may share information that we have about you, such as a cookie ID or IP address, with third-party advertising service providers who may use this information, on our behalf, to help Daily Remedy deliver advertising on the Daily Remedy Sites as well as on third-party websites.

Certain content, services, and advertisements offered to you through the Daily Remedy Sites are served on, or contain links to, websites hosted and operated by a company other than Daily Remedy (“Third Party Websites”). Daily Remedy does not share your personal information with these Third Party Websites without your consent, but you should be aware that any information you disclose to these Third Party Websites once you access these Third Party Websites is not subject to this Privacy Policy. Daily Remedy does not endorse and is not responsible for the privacy practices of these Third Party Websites. You should review the privacy policy posted on the Third Party Website to understand how that Third Party Website collects and uses your information. Daily Remedy makes an effort to make it obvious to you when you leave a Daily Remedy Site and enter a Third Party Website, either by requiring you to click on a link or by notifying you on the Daily Remedy Site before you visit the third-party site. In addition, if you see a phrase such as “Powered by” or “in association with” followed by the name of a company other than Daily Remedy, then you are on a website hosted by a company other than Daily Remedy. When you use a co-branded service (a service operated with a partner of Daily Remedy, such as Daily Remedy Lab Testing), or register or otherwise provide information on a co-branded site, where applicable, we may pass the collected information back to that partner, which may include third-party service providers whose services are embedded into and/or appear within the Services.

We may also include social widgets on the Daily Remedy Sites which enable you to interact with the associated social media services, e.g., to share an article. These widgets may collect browsing data that may be received by the third party that provided the widget, and are controlled by these third parties. You may be able to manage your privacy preferences directly with the applicable social network platform.

Compliance with Law, Regulation, and Law Enforcement Requests

To cooperate with government authorities and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law, we may release personal information to third parties: (1) to comply with legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, or court order; (2) when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request; or (3) in special cases, such as in response to a physical threat to you or others, to protect the property or defend or assert legal rights. In addition, we may disclose personal information as described below.

Updating/Removing Your Personal Information

If you do not want your personal information used by Daily Remedy as provided in this Privacy Policy, you should not use the Daily Remedy Sites, Apps, and Services. You can correct, update or review the personal information you have previously submitted by going back to the specific Service, logging in, and making the desired change.

If you have registered and desire to delete any of the registration information you have provided to us from our systems please contact us using the contact information listed below. Upon your request, we will delete your registration information from our active databases and where feasible from our backup media. You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to the Daily Remedy Sites from our servers.

You can unsubscribe from an email newsletter by:

  • Following the directions included at the bottom of the newsletter and using the “Unsubscribe” link found in the emails.
  • Logging in to the Daily Remedy Sites and unchecking the newsletters you no longer wish to receive under the “My Profile” section.

If you decide that you would prefer not to receive personalized email or secure electronic messages from the Daily Remedy Health Manager tool, you may also “opt out” of the Service by clicking on the settings tab on your Health Manager home page and changing your email preference or following the unsubscribe instructions included in each email.

California Residents

If you are a California resident, California law may provide you with additional rights regarding our use of your personal information.

Children

We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. The Daily Remedy Sites are not designed or intended to attract children under the age of 13. The Daily Remedy Sites do not collect personal information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13. A parent or guardian, however, may use Daily Remedy Health Manager to establish a personal health record and a Daily Remedy Health Manager home page for a minor. The parent or guardian is solely responsible for providing supervision of the minor’s use of the Daily Remedy Health Manager. The parent or guardian assumes full responsibility for ensuring that the registration information is kept secure and that the information submitted is accurate. The parent or guardian also assumes full responsibility for the interpretation and use of any information or suggestions provided through the Daily Remedy Health Manager for the minor.

Note to Users Outside of the United States

Daily Remedy and our technical infrastructure are located in the United States. The personal information that you provide to us is stored on servers located in the United States. If you are located in another jurisdiction, you should be aware that in order to provide the Services to you, we must transfer your personal information to the United States where it will be stored and processed in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We may transfer your information outside the United States to service providers with operations in other countries. By using the Services, you consent to such collection, storage, and processing in the United States and elsewhere, though the United States and other jurisdictions may not afford the same level of data protection as considered adequate in your own country. We will take reasonable steps to protect your personal information. Note that your personal information may be available to the United States government or its agencies under legal processes made in the United States.

Additional Information for Daily Remedy’s Visitors from the European Economic Area (“EEA”)

If you are a Daily Remedy user in the EEA, you can: (i) access personal information we have about you (we will try to provide information within 30 days of your request); (ii) have your personal information corrected or deleted (in most cases you can correct the personal information you have submitted to us by going back to the specific Service, logging-in and making the desired change); (iii) in certain circumstances, you can object to our processing of your personal information and we will discontinue such processing unless we have compelling legitimate grounds to continue; (iv) withdraw consent previously provided (however a withdrawal does not affect the lawfulness of processing of your personal data that occurred prior to the date of withdrawal); or (v) if you believe that we have not complied with applicable data protection laws, you may lodge a complaint with your local supervisory authority. If you wish to inquire as to whether we maintain any of your personal information and if so, whether you wish to exercise any of those rights that are available to you with respect to such personal information, you may contact us as described in the Contacting Daily Remedy About Your Personal Information or Privacy section below. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.

Where we process your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you can opt-out through the unsubscribe link in the email communications we send to you, by changing your subscription preferences in your account settings or as otherwise specified in this Privacy Policy.

We will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to provide the Services to you and fulfill the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. This is also the case for third parties with whom we share your information to perform services on our behalf. When we no longer need to use your personal information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we will either remove it from our systems or anonymize it. If you have registered with Daily Remedy and you no longer want us to use your registration information to provide the Services to you, you may close your account.
