Privacy Policy

Tana Amen values the privacy of all of our readers. We take very seriously the need to respect and protect your privacy and the security of any information you may share with us. We’ve built a site that allows you to control how much information you give us and how that information is used. This privacy policy (“Policy”) describes the data collection, use, and disclosure practices of Tana Amen in connection with the Web Site, www.TanaAmen.com (the “Web Site” or “Site”).This Policy applies to information collected only directly through or from TanaAmen.com. This Policy also does not apply to third-party online resources. TanaAmen.com does not control their content or their privacy practices. Please read our Policy carefully. Your understanding of how we use any information you provide — and your trust that we will use it carefully — are very important both to you and to us. Why? Because it helps us provide more relevant, useful information to you. If you have any questions about our data collection, use, or disclosure practices, please contact us in any of the ways listed at the end (Section 17). Please also be sure to read our complete Terms of Use.

1) What Information Do We Collect?

We collect two types of information on TanaAmen.com. The first, “Personal Information,” is information that allows someone to identify or contact you, such as your name and e-mail address, as well as any information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing information. The second type, “Anonymous Data,” is data not associated with or linked to your Personal Information. Anonymous Data cannot be used to identify you. We collect Personal Information and Anonymous Data based on your participation on TanaAmen.com.

2) How We Collect Information from You

TanaAmen.com will collect information from you when you interact with us in the following ways:

a) Cookies

As with most sites on the Internet, when you visit our Site, TanaAmen.com may place a “cookie” on your computer that enables us to give you a better experience on the Site.

    • Internet cookies are small text files that save data about you as an individual visitor and help .com deliver personalized content and other services in a manner convenient to you.
    • Many Web browsers are automatically set to accept cookies. You may change your browser settings to either reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is about to be placed on your computer. Please note, however, that rejecting cookies while visiting TanaAmen.com may result in certain parts of the Site not operating correctly or as efficiently as they would with cookies. For example, if you are a TanaAmen.com Member without a cookie, you may need to enter your Name and Email each time you visit the Site in order to see all TanaAmen.com recipes. If you allow cookies, it streamlines your user experience on TanaAmen.com and keeps track of your preferences.

b) IP Address

An “IP Address” is actually a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases, your IP address stays the same from session to session; but if you use a consumer Internet access provider (such as Earthlink or AT&T), your IP address probably varies from session to session. We track IP addresses solely in conjunction with session cookies to analyze our Web page flow.

c) Other Systems

Information is also collected from you when:

    • You interact with the message boards and post comments on articles.
    • You click on advertisements on the Site or in one of the free health newsletters and e-mails you receive from TanaAmen.com.
    • You invite someone else to join TanaAmen.com through our Web Site’s sharing tools — in that case, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as the other person’s e-mail address, in order to send this e-mail; if you decide to invite someone else to take the TanaAmen.com tests and they subsequently register with us, we will collect and save the other person’s e-mail address, as we would for anyone who registers on the Site.

Also, in most instances we include certain tracking links that allow us to monitor whether you accessed specific content or advertisements. If you click on one of these links, we will record that click and certain activities on TanaAmen.com associated with that tracking link. We may use this information for various purposes, such as to conduct internal research on our users’ demographics, interests, and clicking behavior and to customize the content and advertisements you see.

3) How We Use the Information We Collect

We do not send or support the delivery of unsolicited bulk e-mail (a.k.a. “spam”).
