  • We may use any of your information to assist law enforcement and respond to regulatory or other legal inquiries, including in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, law or regulation, or in accordance with the terms of the Notice of Privacy Practices.  We may use and disclose any of your information as reasonably necessary to protect the rights or property of us, our affiliates, and our users, or to enforce the terms and conditions associated with our website including this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use.  Except where required by law, we do not necessarily provide notice when sharing information for legal compliance.

 

How We Share Your Information:


We do not sell, rent, or loan your personal information to any non-affiliated third parties, except as described in this Privacy Policy.  We will only share your information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of ARxWP as described below:
When We Work with Service Providers

  • We may share your information with affiliated and unaffiliated companies that perform tasks on our behalf related to our business.  Such tasks include analyzing site usage data, customer service, electronic and postal mail service, and social and other media services.  We may also work with third-party service providers in fulfilling part or all of our various services.  Third-party service providers receive your information only as necessary to perform their role, and we instruct them not to use your information for any other purposes.
  • We may work with other companies who place cookies, tags, and web beacons on our websites.  These companies help operate our websites and provide you with additional products and services.
  • We may also use third-party advertising networks to serve advertisements on our behalf.  The cookies received with the banner advertisements served by these networks may be used to collect and build behavioral profiles by these companies to deliver targeted advertisements on our website and unaffiliated websites.

 

When We Work with Third-Party Partners

  • We may work with other companies who operate their own websites or mobile applications, to allow them to offer ARxWP customers the ability to connect to ARxWP services.  These services provide more options to use ARxWP services from websites or apps that are not owned or operated by ARxWP.
  • If you visit our website after having logged into a social media website, that social media website may be able to identify you and determine which resources you accessed on our website.  The social media website may be able to make this determination even if you subsequently logged out of the website prior to visiting our website. 

 

When Sharing Is Required by Law or Helps Us Protect Our Interests

  • We will use and disclose your information as necessary or appropriate under applicable law to comply with legal process, to respond to such requests from public and government authorities, to enforce our terms and conditions, including investigations of potential violations, to facilitate our efforts to detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property, and to allow us to pursue available remedies to limit the damages we may sustain.  In matters involving claims of personal or public safety or in litigation where the data is pertinent, we may use or disclose personal information without your consent or court process.

 

When We Work on Business Transactions

  • As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy assets, or as part of a merger, acquisition, sale of company assets, in connection with the evaluation of and entry into such transactions, or in the course of providing transition of services to another provider.  In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets.  Additionally, if ARxWP’s customer information is among assets affected by a financing arrangement, or in the unlikely event that ARxWP or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets and is permissible under law.

 

Non-identifiable or Aggregate information with Third Parties

  • We may share non-identifiable or aggregate information with third parties for lawful purposes.

 

With Your Consent

  • At your direction or request, or when you otherwise consent, we may share your information.

Your Choices:
We want you to know that you do have certain choices with regard to how your information is collected and used.
Email and Mobile Communications

  • We may communicate with you regarding (i) information associated with the order and/or delivery of prescription drugs and/or other products from our pharmacies and/or other providers, and (ii) other information that we have been given permission to send to you.  We strive to send these different types of information in accordance with available communication channels, formats, and choices that you have expressed, in each case in compliance with applicable law.  While we generally communicate with you in accordance with these preferences, we may sometimes use other channels and formats to best provide you with available services.  
  • You may choose to stop receiving e-mail and mobile marketing communications by clicking Unsubscribe from the bottom of ARxWP emails, and replying STOP to our text messages to stop receiving emails and SMS text messages.  To request unsubscribing by email, contact [address].
  • Not all types of information and communication channels, formats, and choices may be available to you or honored at a particular time.  An expressed communication preference may not be immediately honored for all communications associated with the preference.  However, the preference may be honored for future communications when possible.

 

Mobile Application and Enhanced Web Features

  • Push Notifications - You can opt out from further allowing ARxWP to send you push notifications by adjusting the permissions in your mobile device.

 

Online Tracking and Interest-Based Advertisements

  • ARxWP engages third-party advertisers to provide interest-based advertising on our website, as well as other third-party sites in order to display advertising that is relevant to you.  These third parties may collect information about your use of our services over time and that information may be combined with information collected on different websites and online services. These third-party advertisers may be participants in the Network Advertising Initiative and/or the Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising, which allow users to opt out of ad targeting from participating companies.  To learn more about interest-based advertising, or to opt-out of having your web browsing information used by certain third-party advertisers for behavioral advertising purposes, go to www.aboutads.info/choices or http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Please Note:  When you “opt-out” of receiving interest-based advertisements, this does not mean you will no longer see advertisements from ARxWP.  It means that the online ads you do see will not be tailored for you based on your particular interests.  We may still collect information about you for any purpose permitted under this Privacy Policy, including for analytics and fraud prevention.
  • As explained above, you may be able to configure your social media account settings to limit collection of information, communication of messages, or promotion of content by or through the social media companies with which you have accounts.  See their websites for more information on how to do so.

 

Our “Do Not Track” Policy

  • Please note that at this time ARxWP’s website and other web-based resources do not interpret or respond to “do not track” signals.  However, you may set your web browser to not accept new cookies or web beacons, be notified when you receive a new cookie, or disable cookies altogether.  Please note that by disabling these features, your experience on our website will not be as smooth and you will not be able to take full advantage of our website’s features.  Please see the Help section of your browser for instructions on managing security preferences.

 

Minors

  • If you are under 18 years old and a registered user, you can request that we remove content or information that you have posted to our website or other online services.  Note that fulfilment of the request may not ensure complete or comprehensive removal (e.g., if the content or information has been reposted by another user).  To request removal of content or information, please contact us.

 

Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information

  • In many circumstances, you can review and update information you have given us by contacting us at [insert contact info].  If you have an ARxWP account, you can log in and update your information.

 

Links to Third-Party Sites:
Our Services may contain links to, or otherwise make available, social media sites and other third-party services, websites and mobile applications that are operated and controlled by third parties.  We do not take responsibility for the content or the privacy practices employed by other sites.  Unless otherwise stated, any information you provide to any such third-party site will be collected by that party and not by ARxWP, and will be subject to that party’s privacy policy (if any), rather than this Privacy Notice.  In such a situation, we will have no control over, and shall not be responsible for, that party’s use of the information you provide them.

Location-Based Services:
When you use our website, we may use various technologies to collect your information as described in this Privacy Policy to provide you with location-based services and content, including for marketing purposes. 

We Strive to Protect Your Information:
Security Statement

  • Whether you are using our website or our other mobile services, we use commercially reasonable security measures, including administrative, technical, and physical safeguards in an effort to protect your personal information.

Email Security

  • “Phishing” is a common email scam where your email address is used to contact you and ask for personal or sensitive information.  Always be cautious when opening links or attachments from unsolicited third parties.  Also know that ARxWP will not send you emails asking for your credit card number, social security number or other personal information.  If you are ever asked for this information, you can be confident it is not from ARxWP.

Children’s Personal Information

  • We recognize the importance of protecting children’s online privacy.  Our website and mobile services are intended for a general audience and are not directed to children.  We do not knowingly collect personal information online from children under the age of 13.  If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under the age of 13 whom you have reason to believe has provided his or her own personal information to us, you have the right to review and request the removal of that child’s personal information from our database.  In order to request such removal, please email us here.  You will be required to verify your identity as the child’s parent or legal guardian in order to view their Personal Information or Health Information or have it removed.
