Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At The Invisible Hypothyroidism we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, The Invisible Hypothyroidism collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Invisible Hypothyroidism’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Invisible Hypothyroidism’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Invisible Hypothyroidism may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Invisible Hypothyroidism also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Invisible Hypothyroidism only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to The Invisible Hypothyroidism’s websites choose to interact with The Invisible Hypothyroidism in ways that require The Invisible Hypothyroidism to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Invisible Hypothyroidism gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to be authorized. Those who wish to receive The Invisible Hypothyroidism updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, The Invisible Hypothyroidism collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Invisible Hypothyroidism. The Invisible Hypothyroidism does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics
The Invisible Hypothyroidism may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, The Invisible Hypothyroidism may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. The Invisible Hypothyroidism may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Invisible Hypothyroidism does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The Invisible Hypothyroidism discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on The Invisible Hypothyroidism’s behalf or to provide services available at The Invisible Hypothyroidism’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The Invisible Hypothyroidism’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Invisible Hypothyroidism will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The Invisible Hypothyroidism discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Invisible Hypothyroidism believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Invisible Hypothyroidism, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of The Invisible Hypothyroidism website and have supplied your email address, The Invisible Hypothyroidism may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The Invisible Hypothyroidism and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via an email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Invisible Hypothyroidism takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
