For example, we may use your personal information to contact you to provide you with information DermOne believes may be useful to you.
We use information about your use of the Site to improve the content of the Site, to improve DermOne’s marketing and promotional efforts and to statistically analyze Site usage patterns on an aggregate basis.

HOW WE MAY SHARE PERSONAL AND OTHER INFORMATION
DermOne may share your personal information or information about your use of the Site with others for a number of different reasons. We may share your personal information to fulfill your requests, to provide you with information regarding products and services of ours or those of others, to comply with law, and to enforce our rights. We also may share personal information among our affiliated companies and to our successors or any of our brands or businesses.
Examples of how we may share your personal information include:
With Business Providers: We may share information with third parties who partner with us to perform services on our behalf (collectively, “Providers”). Examples of Providers include data analysis firms, customer service and support providers, email and SMS vendors, web hosting and development companies, and fulfillment companies. Some Providers also may collect information on our behalf from our Site. These third parties may be provided with access to personal information needed to perform their functions.

The Site is not designed to collect personal information from children who are under 13 years of age, and we do not intend to or knowingly collect such information.
The security of your information is important to us. We employ reasonable practices and procedures designed to protect your information. However, no security program is impenetrable, and criminals have proven adept at circumventing widely adopted security safeguards, so we cannot guarantee the security of personal information. Accordingly, you acknowledge that you provide information to us at your own risk.
Any user or third party accessing our website or services is responsible for its own use of the website and the services. We are not responsible for any third party’s actions or its security controls with respect to information that third parties may collect or process via the website, services, or otherwise.
DermOne and its business partners may collect and store information about you and your use of the Site through cookies, tracking pixels, and other technologies (collectively, “Tools”). Cookies are small text files that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. We collect, use, and modify this information to better understand, customize, and improve your experience with the Site and other websites, services, and offerings as well as to manage our advertising. For example, we use web analytics services that leverage these Tools to help us understand how visitors engage with and navigate our Site, e.g., how and when pages on the Site are visited and by how many visitors. We are also able to offer our visitors a more customized and relevant experience on the Site by delivering, through the use of these Tools, content and functionality based on your preferences and interests. If you have provided us with personal information, e.g., through a registration or a request for certain materials, we may associate that personal information with information gathered through the Tools. This allows us to offer increased personalization and functionality.
Although it is our hope that you find the display of advertising to you based on your anonymous interests valuable, if you would prefer not to participate in the services offered through these solutions, you can always opt-out of this activity by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) website by clicking http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.
