What is “Personally Identifying Information?”
“Personally identifying information” is information that can be explicitly used to identify and/or contact you as an individual. This includes information such as your real name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, credit card number, etc. Information that, by itself, cannot be explicitly linked with your “real” identity is not considered personally identifying. Examples of this are favorite or bookmarked websites, or your preferences with respect to how you wish to see a given page, or site set up according to the selections you choose.
On occasion, VenousInstitute.com may ask you for personal information such as your name or address. We do this when you register for contests/promotions or services that require registration or subscription. VenousInstitute.com needs to collect this information for fulfilling prizes, and for tracking/verifying compliance with VenousInstitute.com policies. It may also be needed for purposes of compliance with federal, provincial, and local laws and/or for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes. When we intend to use your personal information, we will seek and obtain your written permission first. This way you can decide whether you want to permit us to use the information.
