Curecity Privacy Policy


CURECITY understands how important the privacy of personal information is to our users. This Privacy Policy will tell you what information we collect about you and about your use of CURECITY and its services. It will explain the choices you have about how your personal information is used and how we protect that information. We urge you to read this Privacy Policy carefully.

This Privacy Policy applies to Web sites owned and operated by CURECITY that are intended for use by consumers (non-professionals) for non-commercial personal, family or household purposes, including CURECITY.in, Curekid.com and including the mobile optimized versions of these sites and our Mobile Device Applications or "Apps" (we refer to these sites and Apps collectively as the “CURECITY Web Sites”).

This Privacy Policy also applies to the consumer-facing version of the CURECITY Health Manager Product. However, if you are an employee or health plan member who has enabled access to your health record at CURECITY.com by registering at your employer's or health plan's website, the privacy policy applicable to your information at your employer's or health plan's website remains applicable to your personal health record at CURECITY.com. If your employer or health plan account is no longer made available to you by your employer or health plan, you will continue to have access to your health information from CURECITY.com, using the same username and password, but will be subject to this Privacy Policy. Except where noted, statements in this Privacy Policy with respect to the CURECITY Web Sites also apply to the CURECITY Mobile Device Applications (or "Apps") for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

References to "CURECITY" mean CURECITY ENTERPRISE PRIVATE LIMITED, including any company that CURECITY, ENTERPRISE PRIVATE LIMITED controls (for example, a subsidiary that CURECITY, ENTERPRISE PRIVATE LIMITED owns). CURECITY may share information among its subsidiaries or web sites that it owns or controls, but information collected under this Privacy Policy is always protected under the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Information Collected About You


1. Personal Information

If you choose to register or update an existing member profile with CURECITY or access certain functionality on the CURECITY Web Sites, you may be required to submit Personal Information. “Personal Information” means information that we can use to identify or contact you, such as your name, address, telephone number or email address. Some of our interactive tools and services may request you to submit health information, which would also be considered Personal Information. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Personal Information that you submit to CURECITY. Inaccurate information will affect your experience when using the CURECITY Web Sites and tools and our ability to contact you as described in this Privacy Policy.

2. Registration

Access to some CURECITY interactive tools and services may be limited to users who have registered.

Some of our tools (such as certain quizzes or calculators) do not retain your Personal Information, while others (such as Ovulation/Pregnancy Calendar and the Healthy Target Program in the CURECITY mobile App and certain of our registration-only Apps like CURECITY Baby) store your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. See also the Section below on Mobile Device Applications. You may also be asked to provide authorization for uses of personal information in addition to what is in this Privacy Policy when you use certain tools, such as providing personal information to a sponsor of the tool. CURECITY will not make any use of your personal information beyond the permitted uses in this Privacy Policy unless you provide such additional consent in connection with the specific tool at the time you submit Personal Information in order to use the tool. CURECITY Health Manager, which allows you a secure place to gather, store, manage and share your Personal Information and provides tools and services to better manage your health and the health of your family, requires additional registration. CURECITY Health Manager has the ability to use Personal Information that you provide to send you personalized emails or secure electronic messages. However, CURECITY does not allow any third parties to place Web Beacons or Cookies or to gather any data about you in connection with your use of the CURECITY Health Manager. Furthermore, CURECITY does not use any information that you submit in connection with that tool to deliver any advertisements to you on or off of the CURECITY Web Sites.

If you download the CURECITY Magazine App from the Apple App Store News Stand and agree to provide your information to CURECITY, your information will be treated like that of a registered user under this Privacy Policy.

3. Newsletters & Emails to You

At registration and at various times as you use the CURECITY Web Sites, you will be given the option of providing us with Personal Information in order to receive recurring informational/promotional newsletters – such as a newsletter relating to a specific health condition – via email from CURECITY and/or directly from third parties. From time to time CURECITY makes subscriptions to our newsletters available on third party websites. If you sign up for one of our newsletters on a third party site the site will provide us with your Personal Information such as your email address and we may use that information as described in this Privacy Policy as though you had provided it directly to CURECITY. In the CURECITY Health Community, you can also click the “Watch This Discussion” link in any Health Community posting, and CURECITY will send you an email summary of each day’s postings in that Community. When you sign up for our email newsletters on the CURECITY Web Sites or at any time, you can choose to opt out of receiving additional promotional newsletters from CURECITY or our Sponsors.

4. You can unsubscribe from a newsletter by:

• Following the directions included at the bottom of the newsletter.

• Logging in to the CURECITY Web Sites and unchecking the newsletters you no longer wish to receive under the “My Profile” section.

5. Email a Friend

If you use our Email a Friend service to tell a friend about a feature on the CURECITY Web Sites or a newsletter, we will ask you for your name, your email address and your friend's email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site using your name and email address as the "from" email address. CURECITY does not use your friend's email information for any other purpose. We will only use the information you provide to send the requested email to your friend.

6. Market Research

From time to time, CURECITY may conduct online research surveys through email invitations, pop-up surveys and online focus groups. When participating in a survey, we may ask you to enter Personal Information. The Personal Information you submit in a survey may be used by CURECITY for research and measurement purposes, as described below, including to measure the effectiveness of content, advertising or programs. When our market research surveys collect Personal Information we will not knowingly accept participants who are under the age of 13. Market research surveys conducted by or on behalf of CURECITY will contain a link to this Privacy Policy.

Community, Health Communities, Blogs and Other Public Forums

CURECITY features several community areas and other public forums where users with similar interests or medical conditions can share information and support one another or where users can post questions for experts to answer. We also offer online discussions moderated by healthcare experts. Our communities are open to the public and should not be considered private.

Any information (including Personal Information) you share in any online community area including a chat room, Health Community, Ask Our Expert posting or online discussion 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 Community areas and would like it removed, you can send us an email to request that we remove it by using the Contact Us link on every page of the CURECITY Web Sites. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your Personal Information.

1. Emails You Send to CURECITY

This Privacy Policy does not apply to information, content, business information, ideas, concepts or inventions that you send to CURECITY by email. If you want to keep content or business information, ideas, concepts or inventions private or proprietary, do not send them in an email to CURECITY.

2. Non-Personal Information

Even if you do not register with or provide any Personal Information to CURECITY, we collect Non-Personal Information about your use of the CURECITY Web Sites. “Non-Personal Information” means information that we cannot use to identify or contact you. We may also acquire Non-Personal Information about our users from external sources. While you may use some of the functionality of CURECITY without registration, many of the specific tools and services on the CURECITY Web Sites require that you register with CURECITY.

3. Cookies and Web Beacons

We collect Non-Personal Information about your use of the CURECITY Web Sites and your use of other web sites through the use of Cookies and Web Beacons. “Cookies” are small data files that are stored on the hard drive of the computer you use to view a web site. Every computer that accesses the CURECITY Web Sites is assigned a different Cookie by CURECITY. “Web Beacons” are graphic image files imbedded in a web page typically used to monitor activity on a web page and send back to its home server (which can belong to the host site, a network advertiser or some other third party) information from your browser, such as the IP address, the URL of the page on which the Web Beacon is located, the type of browser that is accessing the site and the ID number of any Cookies on your computer previously placed by that server.

Third parties under contract with CURECITY may use Cookies or Web Beacons to collect Non-Personal Information about your usage of the CURECITY Web Sites, including which health topics you have viewed. These third party advertising service providers may use this information to help CURECITY deliver advertising on the CURECITY Web Sites as well as on other sites on the Internet based on your browsing activity on our sites. CURECITY may further tailor the advertising on CURECITY and these third party sites based on additional Non-Personal Information to the extent known by CURECITY or these third parties. Two of the third parties that CURECITY works with are Google AdX and Facebook. In addition to using the Non-Personal Information it collects performing services for CURECITY Google may also use such information as described in its privacy policy. To see how Google may use information collected through our use of the Google AdX services on the CURECITY Web Sites visitwww.google.com/policies/privacy/partners. While Facebook does not provide any personal information to CURECITY, Facebook may use information that it has about you and that it collects performing services for CURECITY (which may be associated with personal information that Facebook has about you) as described in its privacy policy available atwww.facebook.com/about/privacy.

Mobile Device Applications (“Apps”) and Mobile Optimized Sites

Some of our Apps, such as CURECITY, CURECITY KID require that you be registered and signed in in order to use them. Some of our Apps, such as the CURECITY App, allow you to use many features without being registered but require that you are signed in as a registered user in order to use certain features, such as the Healthy Target Program. The information that we collect through your use of these Apps and tools will be treated as Personal Information under this Privacy Policy.

When you download and install one of our CURECITY Mobile Apps onto your mobile device we assign a random number to your App installation. This number cannot be used to identify you personally, and we cannot identify you personally unless you choose to become a registered user of the App. We use this random number in a manner similar to our use of Cookies as described in this Privacy Policy. Unlike Cookies, the random number is assigned to your installation of the App itself and not a browser, because the App does not work through your browser. Therefore the random number cannot be removed through settings. If you do not want us to use the random number for the purposes for which we use Cookies, please do not use the Mobile Device Apps. Also, due to technical limitations, our TRUSTed Ads™ program is not implemented on our Mobile Device Apps. Because some of the content on our Mobile Device Apps directs your mobile device to our website you will be exposed to the Cookies that we use and to third party Cookies that may be contained in advertisements that we do not control and will be unable to delete any of these Cookies with your mobile device. Therefore, if you do not want to be Cookied when you use your mobile device you should not use our Mobile Device Apps and you should set your mobile device to reject Cookies when you use our mobile optimized sites.

Our use of Cookies and Web Beacons on our mobile optimized sites are similar to our use on our desktop sites. Your choices to reject Cookies, use the Network Advertising Initiative and the TRUSTed Ads™ program, described below in the section "What Choices Do I Have" are available on our mobile optimized sites. If you have questions about how to reject Cookies on your specific device please check with the device manufacturer.

Non-Personal Information Collected by Third Parties Not Acting on CURECITY’s Behalf

Sponsors or advertisers on the CURECITY Web Sites may use their own Cookies, Web Beacons or other online tracking technologies in the banner advertisements and sponsored links and on the pages ("Brand Pages") on the CURECITY Web Sites that consist solely of advertisements or other content from our advertisers. This advertiser content may also be served in emails, special promotions or newsletters we send you. Their advertisements may be displayed on the CURECITY Web Sites or on other sites that you visit after you visit the CURECITY Web Sites. Some advertisers use companies other than CURECITY to serve their ads and to monitor users' responses to ads, and these ad servers may also collect Non-Personal Information through the use of Cookies or Web Beacons on the CURECITY Web Sites.

While we generally permit the use of these third party cookies on the assumption that they comply with our Advertising Policy and we assist our advertisers with the placement of cookies or beacons on Brand Pages, we do not control how third parties use Cookies or Web Beacons or how they manage the Non-Personal Information they gather through the use of these technologies on the CURECITY Web Sites and we may be unable to verify compliance with our Advertising Policy. To see how Google may use information collected through your use of Google's search services on the CURECITY Web Sites visithttp://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners.

What Choices Do I Have?


1.Updating/Removing Your Personal Information

If you do not want your Personal Information used by CURECITY as provided in this Privacy Policy, you should not register as a member or for any specific tool or application that collects Personal Information. You can correct, update or review Personal Information you have previously submitted by going back to the specific tool or application, logging-in and making the desired change. You can also update any Personal Information you have submitted by contacting us using the contact information listed below.

If you have registered and desire to delete any of your Personal Information you have provided to us from our systems please contact us using the contact information listed below. Upon your request, we will delete your Personal Information from our active databases and where feasible from our back-up media. You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to the CURECITY Web Sites from our servers.

If you decide that you would prefer not to receive personalized email or secure electronic messages from the CURECITY Health Manager tool, you may "Opt-out" of the service by clicking on the settings tab on your Health Manager home page and changing your email preference or following the unsubscribe instructions included in each promotional email.

2. Cookies

Most browser software can be set to reject Cookies. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject Cookies in the "Help" section of the toolbar. If you reject our Cookies, certain of the functions and conveniences of the CURECITY Web Sites may not work properly but you do not have to accept our Cookies in order to productively use the CURECITY Web Sites. It is important to note that in order to use the opt-out services described below, such as the Network Advertising Initiative and the TRUSTed Ads™ program, you must not reject all Cookies because these opt-out procedures work by placing Cookies on your browser that enable these opt-out procedures to function. The “opt-out Cookies” are placed, for example, in order to help prevent the placement of Cookies used for the targeting of advertising.

As described above in the section "Non-Personal Information" we work with third party ad networks to display advertising on our Sites and on other sites on the Internet. Our ad network vendors use technologies to collect non-personally identifiable information about your activities on our web sites to provide you Cookie-based targeted advertising based upon your browsing activity and your interests. The CURECITY Web Sites do not respond to web browser "do not track" signals.

Research and Measurement Activities

Information that CURECITY collects about you may be combined by CURECITY with other information available to CURECITY through third parties for research and measurement purposes, including measuring the effectiveness of content, advertising or programs. This information from other sources may include age, gender, demographic, geographic, personal interests, product purchase activity or other information. We may report aggregate information, which is not able to be identified back to an individual user of the CURECITY Web Sites, to our current or prospective advertisers and other business partners. We do not sell or share any Personal Information with any third parties, except that contractors performing services on our behalf may be provided access to Personal Information when performing these services. These contractors agree not to use this information for any purpose other than performing services on our behalf.

With Whom Do We Share Your Information?

Except as described in this Privacy Policy or as specifically agreed to by you, CURECITY will not disclose any Personal Information it gathers from you through the CURECITY Web Sites. We may only release Personal Information to third parties: (1) to comply with legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; or (2) in special cases, such as in response to a physical threat to you or others, to protect property or defend or assert legal rights.

In the event of such a change, your Personal Information will continue to be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy unless any changes to the Privacy Policy are made in accordance with the section below that discusses “Changes to This Privacy Policy.”

Disclosures to CURECITY Contractors

CURECITY contractors sometimes have limited access to your Personal and Non-Personal Information in the course of providing products or services to CURECITY. These contractors include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, data analysis, research, advertising and marketing assistance and/or content in connection with our operation and maintenance of the CURECITY Web Sites. We contractually require that our contractors: 1) protect the privacy of your Personal and Non-Personal Information consistent with this Privacy Policy and 2) not use or disclose your Personal or Non-Personal Information for any purpose other than providing the limited service or function for CURECITY.

CURECITY does not disclose your Personal Information to these Third Party Web Sites without your consent, but you should be aware that any information you disclose to the other web sites once you access these other web sites is not subject to this Privacy Policy. CURECITY does not endorse and is not responsible for the privacy practices of these Third Party Web Sites. You should review the privacy policy posted on the other web site to understand how that Third Party Web Site collects and uses your Personal Information. CURECITY makes an effort to make it obvious to you when you leave our website and enter a Third Party Web Site, either by requiring you to click on a link or by notifying you on the site before you visit the third party site. In addition, if you see a phrase such as "Powered by" or "in association with" followed by the name of a company other than CURECITY, then you are on a web site hosted by a company other than CURECITY.

How Do We Secure and Retain Your Information?

We take reasonable security measures to protect the security of your Personal Information. Despite CURECITY's efforts to protect your Personal Information, there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way around our security systems or that transmissions of your information over the Internet may be intercepted.

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. When you enter Personal Information (including personal health information in various tools on our website), we encrypt the transmission of that information or use SSL connections (Secure Socket Layer) technology.

We will retain your Personal Information as long as your account is active or needed to provide you services. At any time you can remove your Personal Information or instruct us to remove it, but you should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to CURECITY from our servers. CURECITY tools that collect and store Personal Information allow you to correct, update or review information you have submitted by going back to the specific tool, logging-in and making the desired changes. We will also retain your Personal Information as necessary to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
