Information You Choose to Provide

Hysterectomy.org collects personally identifiable information only from our users who choose to provide it. We do so at several different points on our web site, for example:

  • At the subscription point for the Hysterectomy.org
  • When you contact Hysterectomy.org by e-mail

  • On the Free eBooks By Email request page

We use the information you provide to deliver the services you have requested.

We may also use the information you provide to operate and maintain the Hysterectomy.org web and to improve our content, services and communications with you.

Because Hysterectomy.org is produced and managed within the United States, you understand that the data protection laws of the United States may not be as comprehensive as those in your own country and that the transfer of this personal information occurs with your consent.

Information Collected Automatically

Hysterectomy.org also collects routine tracking information as users move through the site, through the use of IP addresses, cookies, and web beacons.

These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We use cookies to track aggregate user statistics on the site to help us determine how people move throughout the site, which areas are popular, and which links are unpopular or hard to see. Users can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some features or areas of our site may be limited.

  • If you opt-in to receive marketing and promotional communications from us or from our sponsors, your identity and contact information (but no medical information) may be used to send you messages about products or services that may be of interest to you. At any time, you can “opt out” of receiving promotional e-mail messages, or having your identity and contact information provided to our sponsors, by contacting us. You will be responsible for contacting these third parties directly, to request that they stop sending you promotional e-mail.
  • We may send you messages regarding your subscription, an order or a contribution by you, or other transactional or relationship messages, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them.
