When you visit our site, we collect two types of information: personal information you actively choose to disclose (Personally Identifiable Information) and information not visible to you that arises out of your browsing of our Site (Passive Information).
- Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) is information that identifies and is reasonably linked to you and that you’ve provided to us. This may include your name, address, phone number, credit card information, and tax ID number. As described below, we may request additional information necessary to establish and maintain your account.
When you register to become an Independent Healy World Member, we will collect PII (which may include, but not limited to, names, address, email address, and telephone numbers). This PII is securely stored and may be accessed on our Backoffice. You are assigned an identification number and select your own password – both are needed to enter the Backoffice and to access your Contact Information. Please safeguard your password in a secure location as we are not responsible for breaches into the system when access is willingly provided.
When you place an order for products or services, we collect PII (e.g., name, contact and billing information, credit card, and other transactional information). We use this information to deliver your order, process payment, and to communicate the status of your order.
Credit and Debit Card Storage
Credit and debit card information collected at registration or for product orders is used only to process payment for the transaction and is handled by an external provider complying with very high Data Security standards. Your data is generally not retained on our Site.
Surveys and Promotions
Occasionally, you may voluntarily provide PII to complete surveys and questionnaires or to participate in user polls. We use this information to improve our products and services and to ensure that we’re providing accurate disclosures. We may also use your PII to provide you newsletters and other marketing information that coincide with your preferences. You may customize your marketing preferences or let us know if you do not wish to receive any promotional materials.
- PASSIVE Information
Information about devices
We may collect different types of information about your location, including general information, such as the city, state, and/or zip code associated with your IP Address, and, if you agree, more specific location information that is provided through the GPS functionality on mobile devices used to access the Website. We may use such location information to customize your browsing experience, including advertising that is presented to you. In order to do this, your location information may be passed along to our Affiliates, agents, service providers or advertisers.

These cookies help to analyze how visitors use the Website, compile statistical reports of Website activity, and provide other services related to the use of the Website and internet usage. We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization.

Your Information Relating to Hyperlinks You might be able to access other websites through our Site via hyperlinks.

- HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION COLLECTED
Broadly speaking, persons we employ directly, or as contractors or agents at our direction, use Active Information for purposes of administering our core business purposes, such as the fulfillment of orders or services, the furnishing of customer care and support, and supplying the availability of other products or services we think might be of interest to our users.
We use Passive Information to gather information about our users and to enhance our Site to make it easier, faster and friendlier for users. Additionally, cookies help us better understand the usage pattern of the people that visit our Site, which helps us improve our services. Passive Information may result in your viewing of particular advertising based on your user habits.
We reserve the right to use Active and Passive Information in order to prevent, detect and investigate fraud, security breaches, or any other potentially prohibited or illegal activity.
We may use any Active Information or Passive Information provided to contact you about various changes to our Site, new services, features or products we offer. If at any time you do not wish to receive such information, you may “opt-out” of doing so by adjusting your email settings in the back office of the website.
Receiving and Sharing of Information from and with Third Parties We reserve the right to receive information about you from other third party sources, that help us update, expand and analyze our records and identify new customers.
Furthermore, we may share Personal Information necessary to the prevention of fraud, illegal activities, and security breaches. Because of this, it’s possible some of your personal information may be shared with fraud prevention agencies. If false or inaccurate information is provided and fraud is identified, details of this fraud may be passed on to these agencies. Likewise, law enforcement and governmental agencies may access and use certain information pursuant to any law, regulation, or subpoena. This applies to information as it relates to both open and closed accounts.
Additionally, third parties who perform services for us as it relates to security, payment, etc. (such as Internet Service Providers, credit card processors, and merchant banks) may also have access to your information in the performance of such necessary services.
Finally, we may disclose anonymous information about user habits to third party advertisers on our Site. Should we buy or sell assets of our company, another company may need to review our company’s assets, which might include your information, to make business decisions as to whether to acquire such assets.
- HOW WE SECURE YOUR INFORMATION
We secure your personal information submitted by you by using reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, or accidental loss of Active and Passive Information. Individual postings on this Site and other communications to our office via email or standard mail may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures are in place prior to your submission of information. Therefore, if you choose to communicate with us through these means, you are assuming the risk of doing so and we respectfully request that you do not send or post sensitive information through these means.
Accessing and Correcting Your Information
We take reasonable measures to ensure that any PII we collect on our Site is accurate, current, complete, and reliable for its intended use. If you wish to update or otherwise correct PII provided to us, you may edit your information online.
Protecting Your Information
We acknowledge your trust and are committed to take reasonable steps to protect PII provided from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access. We employ physical, electronic, and managerial processes to safeguard and secure your information. Billing and payment data is encrypted whenever transmitted or received online. Personal information is accessible only by staff designated to handle online requests or complaints.
It is your responsibility to safeguard the password you use to access our Site and to promptly advise us if you ever suspect that your password has been compromised. We strongly encourage you to change your password regularly to prevent unauthorized access. Because your identification number and password are specific to you, you acknowledge sole responsibility for any and all use of our Site conducted with your identification number and password.

If you use these links, you will leave our Site. This Privacy Statement does not cover the information practices of those websites nor do we control their content or privacy policies. We suggest that you carefully review the privacy policies of each site you visit.
Children’s Privacy Protection
We take special care to protect the privacy needs of children and encourage parents to be an active participant in their child’s online activities. Our Site does not target and is not intended for children under the age of 18 and we will not knowingly collect PII from them. If we discover personal data from a child through our Site, we will eliminate that data.

If you are situated in the EU, whenever we transfer your personal data to processors outside of the EU, we ensure appropriate and suitable safeguards are used in such transfer.
