In connection with your use of our Platform, we may ask you to provide personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address, or telephone number and your employer or the organization, university or other academic institution with whom you are affiliated with or enrolled with that invited you to use the Platform. We may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, telephone number, image, contact lists, social media information and profile, location (GPS) information, preferences, interests and favorites.

Use of Your Personal Information
Precision Medicine™ collects and uses your Personal Information to operate and improve its Platform, its products and services.

Sharing of Your Personal Information

We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting websites, processing transactions (including credit card processing), or performing statistical or other market analysis of the use of our Platform, products and services and in connection with our data and promotions management. Those service providers will be permitted to obtain only the Personal Information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose. However, for credit card processing, our fraud detection vendors may use aggregate data to help improve their service. This helps them more accurately detect fraudulent uses of credit cards.
