Protecting the privacy of our visitors and members is paramount to us. Our standards with respect to online privacy and security and the protection of visitor and members interests are in accordance with the guidelines established by the Health on the Net (Geneva) Code of Conduct guidelines, TRUSTe, and the Federal Trade Commission.

Our policies are clear and easily accessible on the site. In addition we have established practices and procedures to ensure that our policies are effectively implemented. These practices include training of staff, separation of duties, storage of data, password controls and oversight by our Director of Technology.

TALKINGTOTA has very strict policies and procedures designed to protect the privacy of our customers and visitors. We will never share your personal information with any external organization without your consent. We do not sell any personal information about our visitors, including email addresses. Any personal information you do wish to provide is protected internally. All personnel with access to personal information are aware of our policies. Any breach of policy would result in immediate dismissal.

We use aggregated information to determine trends and visitor needs. Some aggregated information is analyzed and used as input to improve our service to subscribers as market research; however, no personal information is divulged. Commerce partners who are privy to personal information (such as the product purchased and the name and address of the purchaser) have also been screened to ensure they have appropriate policies in place. It is important to note that when you click on a link that takes you off our site, this Privacy Statement no longer applies.

Some of the information requested is of a personal nature but there is certainly no obligation to answer every question. In particular, submission of your email address is entirely optional. If you do opt to include your email address, it is used only for the purpose of adding you to our newsletter mailing list and is not linked to the survey. We use the information gathered to help improve our understanding of your needs and preferences in order to provide you with the best possible service.
