For each visitor to our website, our Web server automatically recognizes only the consumer's domain name, but not the e-mail address (where possible). If you wish to subscribe to our mailing list, you can submit your email address directly by opting-in on our toolbox page or communicating with us via email. Otherwise, we may only aggregate information on what pages our consumers access or visit.
While interacting with our website, you may voluntarily submit personal information, including protected health information, to Alternative Answer. By providing such information through our website, you agree that we may utilize that information to provide you with requested or relevant services. We will take reasonable efforts to maintain the security of information you provide to us through our website, but by submitting information through our website you acknowledge that you are ultimately responsible for the information you provide.
- Information We Collect
We may collect and may make use of personal information to assist in the operation of this Website and to ensure delivery of the Services you need and request. At times, we may find it necessary to use personally identifiable information as a means to keep you informed of other possible Services that may be available to you from us. We may also be in contact with you with regards to completing surveys and/or questionnaires related to your opinion of current or potential future Services that may be offered.
A. Personally Identifiable Information
Voluntary submissions of personally identifiable information can occur for various reasons, such as if you request to receive information about our Services, subscribe to one of our mailing lists, or purchase any Services.
We collect personally identifiable information, like names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, IP addresses, and sometimes credit card information when such information is voluntarily submitted by you. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the personal information that you submit to us.
In addition, we may use personal information about you for other purposes that are disclosed to you at the time we collect the information and/or with your consent.
B. Non-Personally Identifiable Information
For each visitor to our Website, our Web server automatically recognizes only the consumer’s domain name, but not the e-mail address (where possible).
We also may collect various types of non-personally identifiable information to help us make your experience more enjoyable, measure site activity to identify future improvements that should be made, and compile aggregate data on what pages are accessed or visited, to help serve site visitors better. For example, we may use such data to tailor our advertisements, develop proper survey questions, and improve our Services. We may also use your IP address to gather broad demographic information, help prevent fraud, and help diagnose problems with our server.
If you visit this Website with an open ID (such as Facebook), you may also be sharing and integrating data with third-party social media sites, and we may track aggregate data about the number of visits to this Website with an open ID, the number of items “liked” on this Website or items on this Website that you choose to share with a third-party social media site.
Additionally, some of our Services are interactive and may request that you submit health-related information; however, we do not associate such health information with personally identifiable information you may have provided (such as for purposes of registering for events or purchasing products).
C. Message Boards and Other Public Forums
Certain Alternative Answer webpages may feature message board areas and other public forums where users with similar interests can share information, pose questions or engage in online discussions.
Any information (including personal information) you share in any online message board or other forum is by design open to the public and is not private. You should think carefully before posting any personal information in any public forum. What you post can be seen, disclosed to or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways we cannot control or predict, including to contact you for unauthorized purposes. As with any public forum on any site, the information you post may also show up in third-party search engines.
If you mistakenly post personal information in our message board areas and would like it removed, you can send us an email to request that we remove it. However, in some cases, such removal may not be possible. Additionally, once you have publicly posted personal information, third parties may access or disclose that information further, which we cannot control.
- Relationship with Third Parties
A. Links to Other Sites
This Website may contain links to other websites. We do not control and are not liable for the actions of any third parties who we may promote and/or link to from this Website. We pride ourselves in recommending quality companies but have no control over the actions of those third parties, the content they provide, the information they collect, or their privacy policies, practices, and procedures. Therefore, we encourage all users and visitors to be aware when they leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. While we are not liable for any of the actions of those third parties, you should feel free to give us feedback from time to time on your experiences with any third parties to whom we work with so that we may enhance our future service to all customers.
B. Information Sharing / Advertisements
This Website may use the Google AdWords remarketing service to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to this or other of our Websites. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an inquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page or a site in the Google Display Network. We may also develop relationships with other companies that we have specifically selected, to place ads on our Websites.
You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page, and if you want to, you can opt-out of interest-based advertising entirely by cookie settings or permanently using a browser plugin. Otherwise, all e-mail will include the opportunity to opt-out of any and all correspondence from us automatically. Once you have opted-out, this will permanently remove your email from our servers, preventing us from sending you anything in the future unless a different email address is used. Persons who supply us with their telephone numbers via e-mail communications may receive telephone contact from us in response to the nature of their inquiry.
With respect to Ad Servers, we may develop relationships with other companies that we have specifically selected to place ads on our web pages. As a result of your visit to their website, ad server companies may collect information such as your domain type, your IP address, and clickstream information. For further information, consult the privacy policies of the individual URLs you do business with from our site.
C. Authorized Disclosures
We reserve the right to disclose your information if required or authorized to do so by law, or in the good faith belief that such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, respond to claims, or protect the rights, property or safety of Alternative Answer and its employees, visitors to our Website, or the public.
- Our Data Security Policy

Furthermore, access to this information is strictly limited, and the information is not accessible to the public.

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we use appropriate industry standard procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, such as firewall, encryption, token authentication, application proxies, monitoring technology, and adaptive analysis of network traffic to track abuse of our network and its data.
In addition, we have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities as well to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you on our Website.
Please be advised that, although we take every reasonable technological precaution available to protect your data, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please ensure that you take all necessary precautions to protect your personal information while online.
