VerusRx does not sell its customers’ personal information, including any personal health-related information, for money or otherwise make it available to third parties for valuable consideration.
As described herein, VerusRx uses certain information collected from its customers and their interactions with the Services to provide and enhance the Services, to manage and administer our business, and as otherwise permitted by law.
In certain instances, VerusRx shares personal information with service providers, or companies providing services to VerusRx, but those service providers are permitted to use the shared information solely for the purpose of providing those services and as otherwise permitted by law.
Types of Personal Information VerusRx Collects
VerusRx may collect the following categories of information for business or commercial purposes:
Keep in mind that, by definition, personal information does not include de-identified or aggregated consumer information.
VerusRx does not knowingly collect personal information from customers who are less than 13 years of age.
How VerusRx Collects Personal Information
VerusRx obtains the above categories of information from three sources: (i) from customers themselves when they choose to provide it; (ii) based on customers’ interaction with our Services; and (iii) from third parties.
Information Customers Choose to Provide
We may collect personal information from you when you download our mobile application and when you contact us via telephone, email, text, postal mail, social-media interaction, or other methods of communication, such as for customer support purposes.
Personal Information VerusRx Collects Indirectly from Customers’ Interactions
When you use our Services, we may collect information using technologies such as cookies, pixels, tags, web beacons, data-analytics tools, browser-analysis tools, and web-server logs. For example, when you access our Services, VerusRx and our service providers may place cookies on your computer or mobile devices. These cookies may include means for tracking your personal information and include tracking technology from our vendors. Some of that information may be written to your device’s or browser’s local storage, which allows us to recognize you when you return and to display recent search behavior in order to provide a more customized experience. The information from cookies and related technology is stored in web-server logs and also in web cookies, which are then transmitted back to our Services by your computer or mobile devices. These servers and the cookies and similar technologies are managed by us, our business partners, or our service providers.
If you use the Services on a mobile device and your mobile device’s settings allow it, we may collect personal information even if you are not logged into one of the Services. In some cases, for example, we may use your IP address to estimate your general location, even if you have not logged in or enabled location tracking on your mobile device. Additionally, we may associate your geolocation information with other information, including your search history when using the Services.
Personal Information We Obtain from Third Parties
VerusRx may obtain personal information about you from our service providers or publicly available sources. We use this information to supplement and enhance the personal information we already have about you to help us better understand you, to manage and administer our Services and business, and to otherwise enhance the Services.
For instance, VerusRx’s service providers may provide us with additional data relating to your online activities across devices and online platforms, which VerusRx may use, for example, to better understand whether you viewed VerusRx-related advertising.
How VerusRx Uses Personal Information
VerusRx may use your information for one or more of the following business or commercial purposes:
When and Why VerusRx Shares Personal Information
VerusRx currently shares personal information with service providers for specific business purposes. When we do so, VerusRx and its service providers enter into agreements that describe the specific business purpose, requires that the service providers keep the information confidential, and restricts use of the shared information to the responsibilities outlined in the agreement.
VerusRx may share the following categories of information, including personal information, with our service providers:
VerusRx shares information with our service providers for them to perform the following services for us or on our behalf:
VerusRx may allow and may have allowed third parties to use tracking technologies, pixels, and tags through or on the Services to collect the same type of information for the same purposes as VerusRx does for itself. For example, we have relationships with third-party advertising technology and analytics companies to perform tracking and reporting functions for our Services and, in some cases, to place targeted advertisements on third-party websites. Additionally, we may share personal information from or about you with third parties to facilitate the display of targeted advertising. Third parties may be able to associate the information they collect with other information they have about you from other sources. Nonetheless, we have taken steps to ensure that these third parties limit their use of such information to the provision of services to VerusRx and avoid any commercial use of such information.
Further, VerusRx may also disclose your personal information to affiliates under common control; if we have a chance of corporate control such as an acquisition, merger, sale of our assets, reorganization; or if we are involved in a bankruptcy.
Cookies & Related Technologies
As mentioned above, when you use our Services, VerusRx collects certain information by automated or electronic means, using various technologies, such as cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, browser analysis tools, and web server logs. As you use our Services, your browser and devices communicate with servers operated by us, our business partners and services providers to coordinate and record the interactivity and fill your requests for services and information. Additional information on how to manage certain tracking features is set forth in Section 6 (Your Choices) below.
The information from cookies and related technology is stored in web server logs and also in web cookies kept on your computers or mobile devices, which are then transmitted back to our Services by your computers or mobile devices. These servers and the cookies are managed by us, our business partners, or our service providers.
For example, when you access our Services, VerusRx and our service providers may place cookies on your computers or mobile devices. These cookies may include means for tracking Personal Information and may include tracking technology from third-party affiliate-network operators. Cookies allow us to recognize you when you return, and track and target your interests in order to provide a customized experience. They also help us detect certain kinds of fraud.
A “cookie” is a small amount of information that a web server sends to your browser that stores information about your account, your preferences, and your use of the Services. Some cookies contain serial numbers that allow us to connect your activity with the Services with other information we store about you in your profile.
Some cookies are temporary, whereas others may be configured to last longer. “Session” cookies are temporary cookies used for various reasons, such as to manage page views. Your browser usually erases Session cookies once you exit your browser. “Persistent” cookies are more permanent cookies that are stored on your computers or mobile devices even beyond when you exit your browser. We use Persistent cookies for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (such as previously searched medications) and for storing your preferences.
Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on website pages or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed specific actions. When you access these pages or open email messages, the pixel tags and web beacons generate a notice of that action to us, or our service providers. These tools allow us to measure response to our communications and improve our web pages and promotions.
We collect many different types of information from cookies and other technologies. For example, we may collect information from the devices you use to access our Services, your operating system type or mobile device model, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone of your device. Browsers routinely send these types of information to web servers. Our server logs also record the IP addresses of the devices you use to interact with the Services. We may also collect information about the website you were visiting before you came to our Services and the website you visit after you leave our Services, if this information is supplied to us by your browser.
We may allow third parties to collect the same type of information for the same purposes as VerusRx does for itself. For example, VerusRx has relationships with third party advertising technology and analytics companies, such as Google Analytics, to perform tracking and reporting functions for certain Services and, in some cases, to help us place targeted advertisements via the Services or third-party websites. Additionally, we may share non-personally identifiable information from or about you, such as location data, advertising identifiers, or a cryptographic hash of a common account identifier (such as an email address) with third parties to facilitate the display of targeted advertising. Third parties may be able to associate the information they collect with other information they have about you from other sources. We do not control the tracking devices used by third parties, but you may be able to opt out of some advertising practices. Please see Section 6 (Opting Out of Tracking) below.
VerusRx thinks that you benefit from a more personalized experience when VerusRx knows a bit about you and your preferences. Accordingly, VerusRx offers several ways to provide additional information if you so desire. Of course, you can limit the information you share via these channels, and you can limit the communications that VerusRx sends to you.
VerusRx Email Communications
You can sign up to receive email communications that might be of interest to you from VerusRx. If you do, you can manage your email preferences by following subscription management instructions contained in the commercial messages that we send you.
VerusRx Text Messages
Please note that each request results in a text message being sent via SMS service to the phone number you enter. By using this feature, you represent that the number you enter belongs to you and that you provide your express written consent for VerusRx to send you a text message including the prescription-drug information that you enter. Message and data rates may apply to messages sent through the app or site feature, so check your service plan for your standard text-messaging fees.
Opting Out of Tracking
Currently, our Services do not recognize browser “do-not-track” signals. However, you can manage how your browser handles cookies and related technologies by adjusting your browser privacy and security settings. Please refer to your browser instructions to learn about cookie-related settings and other privacy and security settings that may be available. Additionally, you can opt-out of targeted advertising by certain third-party advertising companies by visiting the following links: Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
How VerusRx Secures Personal Information
VerusRx follows generally accepted industry standards to protect its customers’ personal information. For example, we regularly monitor our system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and we use a secured-access data center. Unfortunately, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. And VerusRx cannot provide any guarantee or warranty that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

YOUR RIGHTS AND CHOICES
The CCPA provides California consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

You may make a right to know request by clicking here._____
RIGHT TO DELETE
You also have the right to request that we delete the personal information that we collected from or about you, subject to certain exceptions.

You may request deletion by clicking here. _____
You have the right to make a request to know or delete two times in any 12-month period
VERIFIABLE REQUESTS TO KNOW AND/OR TO DELETE
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request to know or delete your personal information.
To make a request to know or to delete click here.
For us to process your request(s), you must provide us with sufficient information for us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected the personal information, or an authorized representative of that person, including verifying that you are a California resident. If you use an authorized agent to submit a request for disclosure or deletion, we may require that you provide the authorized agent written permission to submit your request, and for you to verify your identity directly with us.
We may deny your request to know or delete if we cannot verify your identity to a reasonable or reasonably high degree of certainty, depending upon the nature of the information you are requesting to know or requesting to be deleted. If there is no reasonable method by which we can identify you, we will explain this to you in our response.
Any disclosures we provide will cover only the 12-month period preceding the verifiable request.
If we cannot respond to a request, we will explain the reasons in writing.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless the request is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Note that we will honor requests to know and requests to delete only from verifiable California residents.
OPTING OUT OF THE SALE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
VerusRx does not presently sell the personal information it collects. Thus, there is no need for you to opt out.
If our policy or prevailing interpretation of the CCPA changes, we will update this Notice, as necessary, in a timely manner.
Note that although we do not sell your personal information, we do share some personal information with our business partners (who function as our service providers in such instances) to perform business functions such as, but not limited to, measuring the effectiveness of our ads, managing how many times you see an ad, reporting on the performance of our ads, processing or fulfilling transactions, ensuring our services are working correctly and securely, providing aggregate statistics and analytics, reducing ad fraud and providing services similar to these.
You may adjust how your web browser handles cookies and related technologies by adjusting its privacy and security settings. Browsers are different, so refer to instructions related to your browser to learn about cookie-related and other privacy and security settings that may be available.
If you access any of our Services through our mobile applications, you may manage how your personal information is shared with us. You may adjust the settings on your mobile device to allow or restrict the sharing of geolocation data. For example, the “Location” permissions (or “Privacy” >> “Location Services” on iOS-based devices) on your mobile device will allow you to elect whether never to share Location Information with VerusRx, to share geolocation information only while you are using the application (e.g., to help you find offers at nearby pharmacies), or always to share geolocation information even while you are not using the application. Please note that if you elect not to share your geolocation information, you may be unable to access some features of our Services that are designed for mobile devices. Also, in the event that you prevent the sharing of geolocation information, we may still estimate your general location based on the IP address you use to access our Services.
You may manage how your mobile device handles ad-related tracking technologies by adjusting your mobile device privacy settings. For example, the “Privacy” settings of an iOS device will allow you to “Limit Ad Tracking” and reset your mobile device’s “Advertising Identifier.”
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. However, if you want to take advantage of certain aspects of our Services, such as requesting a prescription discount card, you will need to share certain personal information with us, so that we can fulfill your request. If you do not wish to share your personal information, or if you decide to delete your personal information, please do not participate in those aspects of the Services.
