How We Collect and Use Your Information
At the Web Site, we do not collect any personally identifiable information (name, e-mail or home address, etc.) unless you voluntarily provide it to us. In cases where FASTHEALTH may need personal information to provide visitors with customized content or to inform them about new features or services, we explicitly ask for that information. Any personally identifiable information provided by visitors will not be disclosed to anyone unless visitors indicate that we may do so.
An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. All computer identification on the Internet is conducted using IP addresses, which allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. FASTHEALTH may collect IP addresses in order to conduct system administration, report aggregate information to sponsors and advertisers, and to conduct site analysis. FASTHEALTH servers may enter the visitor's IP address into a log whenever a visitor requests pages from FASTHEALTH. In order to maintain visitor anonymity, FASTHEALTH does not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information or any information that is considered sensitive or controversial or that would compromise your privacy. However, FASTHEALTH will use IP addresses to identify any visitors who refuse to comply with FASTHEALTH's in-house rules or terms of service, and to identify visitors who threaten our service, site, customers or others.
Our Web Site's registration system may require users to provide us certain contact information such as their name, e-mail address, ZIP code, age, sex and income level. This contact information is used to contact the user when necessary. Users may choose to opt-out of any future mailings in they prefer. [See the Choice/Opt-Out section below]. Demographic and profile data may also be collected at our Web Site. We use this data to tailor the visitor's experience at our Web Site, showing the visitor content that reflects their stated preferences. This information is shared with advertisers only on an aggregate basis, which means that we will not disclose this information in a way that will indicate the identity of individual visitors.

Information collected in this manner is generally stored to record the transaction for customer service and accounting reasons. We may also share this information with other third parties but only on an aggregate basis, which means that we will not disclose this information in a way that will indicate the identity of individual users.
Surveys and Questionnaires
