Sanare understands the importance of maintaining the privacy of your personal information. For that reason, Sanare adopted this Privacy Policy to inform you what information Sanare collects about you, how it uses that information, and what choices you have in these important matters. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. Your use of the Defy Diabetes website constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Policy.

What Information Does Sanare Gather and How Does Sanare Use This Information?

A. Non–personal Information

Cookies Cookies are small data files that Sanare places on the hard drive of your computer to optimize your use of the Defy Diabetes website. For example, we use cookies to facilitate our login processes, to aid in navigation of the website, to time visits to the website, and to log you off the website automatically after a period of inactivity. Sanare may also use cookies to collect information about you. The information Sanare gathers through cookies is non–personal information. This information cannot be traced back to you and cannot be used to identify you. Sanare will use any information it gathers from cookies only for such internal purposes as improving the Defy Diabetes website. For example, cookies enable us to collect information about usage of the website, to determine the size of our audience, and to help us improve the site by measuring which areas are of greatest interest to users. You may set your computer not to receive these cookies, but doing so will impair your enjoyment and use of the Defy Diabetes website.

Analytics Under a contractual arrangement with Sanare, Googles Analytics will paste an analytics snippet, a small piece of JavaScript code, into the pages of the Defy Diabetes website to gather information. Similar to Sanare's use of cookies, the sole purpose for allowing Google Analytics to gather information is to enable them to analyze and better understand traffic patterns on Defy Diabetes.com. Sanare will then use these analyses to adjust the content of Defy Diabetes.com to serve your needs and interests better. The information that Sanare allows Google Analytics to gather is non–personal information. This information cannot be traced back to you and cannot be used to identify you.

Community, Social Media, and Other Public Forums Certain features of Defy Diabetes.com enable you to share personal information with experts, with others who have interests similar to yours, and, in certain cases, with the general public.

Sanare endeavors to protect the privacy only of the information you enter on the Registration Form and in the areas of Defy Diabetes.com that require registration.

Anything you post in such places is potentially viewable and useable for any purpose by third parties.

Do not post any information in the community, social media, or other public forum areas of the website that you do not intend to make public.

Disclosures to Sanare Employees and Contractors At times designated Sanare employees and contractors may have access to your personal information in the course of performing their jobs. Sanare will endeavor to limit any such access to the information reasonably necessary for these persons to perform their jobs. Internal rules applying to Sanare employees and all contracts with third–party contractors will include provisions to protect the privacy of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and to make clear that persons with access to your personal information may use or disclose it only as is necessary either to perform their jobs or fulfill the terms of their contract with Sanare or as is required by law.
