By using the Site or obtaining any product or service through this Site, you agree to the limited collection and use of information as outlined in this Policy. If you do not agree to this Policy, please do not use the Site.
Emails from DrJohnsOnline.com or its business partners, and the Site itself, may contain links to other Internet websites, including sites that may or may not be owned or operated by DrJohnsOnline.com. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites, including their use of any information (such as IP number, browser type or operating system) collected when email recipients or Site visitors click through links to those sites. If you visit such websites, we encourage you to become familiar with the privacy practices of the sites to ensure a safe browsing experience.
We may from time to time update this Policy to reflect changing technology and other factors. We will notify you of changes to the Policy by posting the updated Policy on this page. We ask that you bookmark and periodically review this page to ensure that you remain familiar with the most current version of the Policy.
Information That We Collect
DrJohnsOnline.com processes your personal information to meet our legal, statutory and contractual obligations and to provide you with our products and services. We will never collect any unnecessary personal data from you and do not process your information in any way other than as specified in this Policy.
DrJohnsOnline.com collects two basic types of information during your visits to our Site.
First, we collect non-personally identifiable information. This is general information that cannot be traced to individuals and contains no personalized data, think of it as a simple census form. When visitors come to our Site, we collect and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages of the Site were visited, the order in which they were visited and which links on the site were clicked. Collecting such information involves logging the IP addresses, operating system and browser software used by each visitor to the Site. Although such information is not personally identifiable, it may be possible to determine from an IP address a visitor’s Internet Service Provider and the general geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity. We then use this information in making modifications and improvements to the site to provide users with a smoother and more efficient shopping experience.
Second, Doctor Johns.com collects personally identifiable information as needed to provide you with requested services and to process your orders. This information is provided directly by you, such as when you complete the account sign-up form, order form, or email marketing opt-in form and/or when you provide information over the telephone. The personally identifiable information you provide may include the following information, which we use as indicated below:
- Name — used for order fulfillment and marketing
- Date of Birth — used to ensure that you are a legal adult
- Mailing, Shipping and Billing Addresses — used for order fulfillment and marketing
- Email Address — used for order status communication and marketing
- Telephone Number(s) — used for order status communication and marketing
- Credit Card or Debit Card Number — used for payment for orders
Further, when you use the Site to purchase a product as a gift and ask us to deliver it for you, we collect personally identifiable information that you provided regarding the gift recipient, including their name and mailing address.
Like many online services, we also use non-invasive “cookies” and other tracking technologies to collect information. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser. These cookies do not track other websites you might visit and they do not plant malware on your computer. Our non-invasive cookies allow us to recognize your browser so we can personalize your return visits to the Site and save you time during checkout.
If you are uncomfortable with cookies on your computer, you can always remove them by accessing the options menu of your browser. Please refer to your browser’s help menu for more specific directions if needed.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
