Overview of Our Privacy Policies
Like pretty much all websites do when users browse, read, or download information from the website, LifeChangeMedicine.com allows for the passive collection of data through a server access log. Information such as IP address, user configuration settings, identification of the website that referred the user to our website, among other things, is collected automatically on standard web server access logs. Aside from this automatic data collection, website operators such as LifeChangeMedicine.com may have to disclose user information in response to legal warrants, subpoenas, or other valid legal process. Because, at present, LifeChangeMedicine.com is free to users and accepts no advertisers, the information that is passively collected is at a minimum.
(See the sections below for more information on user communications.)

Like most website operators, LifeChangeMedicine.com collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. LifeChangeMedicine.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LifeChangeMedicine.com’s visitors use its website. From time to time, LifeChangeMedicine.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
LifeChangeMedicine.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. LifeChangeMedicine.com only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to LifeChangeMedicine.com’s websites choose to interact with LifeChangeMedicine.com in ways that require LifeChangeMedicine.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LifeChangeMedicine.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, some websites like WordPress.com ask visitors who sign up for a blog at WordPress.com to provide a username and email address. This is applicable if you sign up with wordpress.com for your own blog. LifeChangeMedicine.com’s website does not offer you an ability to create your own blog on our site. Those who engage in transactions with LifeChangeMedicine.com may be asked for certain information. For example if a user wishes to purchase access to services such as Akismet comment spam prevention service they would be asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. At this time LifeChangeMedicine.com’s website does not have an ability to allow you to purchase Akismet or any other services. In the future LifeChangeMedicine.com may offer some services that may require its users to provide information to allow the use of such services or for the purchase of products. In each case, LifeChangeMedicine.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with LifeChangeMedicine.com . LifeChangeMedicine.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
LifeChangeMedicine.com may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, LifeChangeMedicine.com may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. LifeChangeMedicine.com may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LifeChangeMedicine.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
LifeChangeMedicine.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on LifeChangeMedicine.com’s behalf or to provide services available at LifeChangeMedicine.com’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using LifeChangeMedicine.com’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. LifeChangeMedicine.com will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, LifeChangeMedicine.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when LifeChangeMedicine.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LifeChangeMedicine.com, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a LifeChangeMedicine.com website and have supplied your email address, LifeChangeMedicine.com may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with LifeChangeMedicine.com and our products. At this time LifeChangeMedicine.com sells not products (Please, see our Sales $ Advertising Policies). We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. LifeChangeMedicine.com takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If LifeChangeMedicine.com , or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that LifeChangeMedicine.com goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of LifeChangeMedicine.com may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
If you have purchased Akismet services from Automattic, comments and other content submitted to Automattic’s Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case they store them long enough to use them to improve their service to avoid future false positives.
