Third-party disclosure: Do we disclose the information we collect to Third-Parties?
Yes. We sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties impersonal aggregate data, such as the total number of users of a service indexed by geographical region, or by allergy type, or other indicator. We do not disclose your personal information, nor do we disclose anonymous information that could represent any individual person.
We engage in this practice because this data is useful for researchers and pharmaceutical companies when attempting to analyze health or allergy trends, or preparing to develop or evaluate medication. This information can also be useful for Just-In-Time Management systems that can help ensure allergy products do not go out of stock in a region. We also intend to use this information either directly or in partnership with third parties to improve our services, in order to provide reports with indicators that are as relevant and useful as possible to each individual’s allergy suffering and allergy treatment.
