What We Collect
INFORMATION YOU GIVE US:
Glow gives you a number of options regarding what information you will give us:
• When you register to create an account with Glow and/or Glow First (whether through one of the Glow Apps or on the Internet);
• When you participate on a Forum or other communication mechanism; and
• When you update a Glow App or the Website with information relevant to your fertility or pregnancy,
When you register with Glow you will submit a variety of information about yourself (such as gender, age, birthdate, email address, mobile phone number) and as you use the Glow Apps you may submit a variety of information (such as menstrual cycle, weight, temperature, occupation, hobbies, interests, zip code, etc.) which may include information about personal health issues and/or information related to your past, present, or future physical or mental health condition. You may also choose to provide us with access to certain personal information stored by third parties including social media sites (such as Facebook and Twitter) and health sites, such as Apple HealthKit and Google Fit. The information we have access to varies by site and is controlled by your privacy settings on that site and your authorization. You may (and may be required to) share information about or give us access to additional third-party websites or services.
Also, when you sign up for Glow First, we may collect other information such as credit card numbers and/or cell phone numbers, as well as other information about you necessary to ensure that the transaction is properly authorized, such as your address, zip code, and cv number (collectively, “Payment Information”). We also may retain such information (or our third party “fulfillment house”, such as PayPal, may retain such information) to facilitate future transactions. See “Controlling Your Personal Information” below if you would like us not to use that information to assist you in completing future transactions.
If you choose to participate in Glow First or become a party to the Glow Fertility Services Patient Agreement, not only may you need to provide us with Payment Information, but if you become entitled to receive a payment from Glow First, you will need to provide us with your social security number as well as information about an accredited infertility clinic and proof of medical claims showing that you are using their services. We may use that information in making filings with the IRS or relevant state taxing authorities.
In addition to information about yourself, it may be possible for you to submit other content ("Content"), such as photos and other media, each of which you present through technology available through the Services, including but not limited to our forum. It is entirely up to you whether you want to submit this additional information, and whether you would like to make it available to others – although information you share on the forum will automatically be shared with others, including users of the Services and others on the internet. However, Glow has no responsibility for how people you allow to view your Content (or the public if you make any information available to the public or post on the Forum) use that material, or to whom they may forward it.
If you visit this website, whether or not you become a user of our Services, be advised that Company will maintain web logs to record data about all visitors and customers who use this website and interact with the Services and we will store this information. These logs may contain IP address information, types of operating system you use, the date and time you visited the site, and, if you are a user of our Services, information about your Information may also be accessed and stored. All web logs are stored securely and are accessible to a very limited number of employees who are required to adhere to strict guidelines regarding user data security and privacy.
Finally, we may use information that you include in emails or other communication methods to us to assist us in providing the Service, and we may publish that information on an anonymous basis. In addition, the text of any posting on any one of the forums, bulletin boards, or other similar publically accessible systems offered by Glow (including any market place or wish list) becomes the property of Glow, and may be republished by Glow in its sole discretion and will be made available to other people through the internet.
In each case, we will collect and record the information you have provided.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM OTHER SOURCES:
Other than names and email addresses provided at your discretion, or information you give us in connection with Glow First and/or the Glow Fertility Program Patient Services Agreement we don't generally require you to give us any “Personally Identifying Information” about yourself, although of course all the information about your health is extremely private.
Furthermore, when you use one of the Glow Apps, we may record information regarding the use of that Glow App, including your cell phone number, and if such facilities are enabled on your cell phone, your location and similar information.
Finally, in order to provide the best possible service and to allow us to make certain internal reports and make recommendations, we collect aggregate information about the use of the Service, including information about users accessing this website or using the Glow Apps, such as Internet protocol addresses, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time (“Activity Information”).
By using the Service, you consent to our retaining all the above-described information indefinitely.
