Privacy Policy

Website Privacy Policy

Thrive Biotics has a longstanding commitment to safeguard the privacy of the information entrusted to us from patients, and customers. The privacy principles and procedures set forth in this Website Privacy Policy are intended to tell you how this information is collected, used, and distributed via our websites.

Types and Uses of Personal Information

When you use our websites, information that personally identifies you may be collected and processed by our employees.  Usually, the only information collected will be your name, billing address, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address when you knowingly provide this information.    Finally, Thrive Biotics may collect or process personally identifiable information, such as your Internet domain or IP address, as part of the normal operation of our websites, or during the normal course of your activities on or use of our websites.   When you use our websites you are consenting to the collection, processing, transfer, or use of this information.  If you choose not to consent to the collection, processing, transfer, or use of this information, then you should not use, or you should discontinue using, our website.

Personal Information Shared with Third Parties

Without a user’s express consent, Thrive Biotics will not sell, trade, or disclose a user’s personally identifiable information to any third party who would attempt to market products or services to the user.  However, Thrive Biotics may disclose information to a third party that is used to assist carrying out a transaction for you or providing a service to you (for example, packaging, sending, or delivering a purchase or information to you or clearing a credit card transaction).

Thrive Biotics might be required to disclose information about users of our websites as a result of a subpoena, a search warrant, or some other legal process authorized by a court of law.  In addition, we might disclose information about users of our websites to a third party who is assisting us in conducting an investigation about unauthorized activity that constitutes a violation of the policies for using our websites, or when circumstances dictate the need to protect or defend our rights or property.

Security Measures

Thrive Biotics regularly implements industry-recommended technological and operational security processes for the purpose of protecting personally identifiable information from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, alteration, or unintentional destruction.  Although no security measure can absolutely guarantee against unauthorized uses, Thrive Biotics regularly reviews and updates our website security measures for the purpose of providing appropriate security for personally identifiable information.

Data Retention

Thrive Biotics will not retain your personally identifiable information longer than is necessary for the purpose it was collected.

Children’s Privacy 

Thrive Biotics policy is that children under the age of 18 should not send any personally identifiable information to our website without a parent’s or guardian’s consent.  We encourage parents and guardians to instruct children about the safe and responsible use of personally identifiable information on the Internet.  Thrive Biotics will not knowingly collect, use, or disclose to any third party any personally identifiable information collected from children under the age of 18.

Use of Cookies and Pixel Tags

When you browse this website, one or more temporary cookies may be placed on your computer to help Thrive Biotics collect information to better understand your interests and to better serve you.  Cookies are used on most major websites.  What are “cookies?”  Cookies are small bits of information stored by your web browser’s software on your computer’s hard drive or temporarily in your computer’s memory.  Using cookies is an industry standard.  Cookies enhance a user’s experience and access to information on a website.  Cookies enable us to recognize you and personalize your experience on this website.

Thrive Biotics may use cookies for a variety of purposes including, but not limited to:  e-commerce functions, to recognize user access or log-on privileges, to track usage and traffic patterns, to provide information and advertisements for goods or services that might interest a user based on the user’s use of this website, and to track the number of users who visit and use this website.

Although most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, you can decline the placement of cookies on your hard drive by using the appropriate feature of your web browser software (if available) to delete cookies.  You can also refuse cookies as part of your browser settings, but doing so might inhibit your ability to utilize many of the features on this and other websites you visit.

In addition to using cookies, Thrive Biotics might employ “pixel tracking” a common process that is used in connection with advertisements and/or internal tracking.  Pixel tracking involves the use of pixel tags – an invisible tag that is placed on various pages of a website that tracks a user’s activity.  Pixel tags are not visible to users and consist of a few lines of computer code.  Pixel tracking measures the effectiveness of advertisements by compiling aggregate and specific usage statistics.  We can access pixel tags to identify the activities and interests that better enable us to match products, services, and offers to the user’s interests and needs.  For example, if a user visits another Thrive website as a result of an advertisement on another website, then the pixel tag will allow the advertiser to track that its advertisement brought the user to a website operated by Thrive Biotics.
