In addition, we may use the information collected from you to contact you from time to time regarding our products and/or services.

Like other web sites, DecisionHealth sites use cookies to improve your experience with our online content.

We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies which enable us to track and target the interests of our users to improve the content on our site. Usage of cookies tells us nothing about who you are and is no way linked to any personally identifiable information. By adjusting your settings on your browser, you may elect not to allow cookies to be collected. However, it is likely that some areas of the site will not function properly if you do so.

This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Third Party Advertising

Some of our advertisers use third-party companies to serve their advertisements on our sites and, in some cases, in our HTML-formatted newsletters. Often, these third-party advertising companies employ cookie and pixel tag technologies to measure the effectiveness of Web and email advertisements. We do not give any personally identifiable information to them as part of this relationship. Use of their tracking technology is subject to their own privacy policies.
