01. Information Collection

Routine Information Collection

When visiting Mesothelioma.com, your web server may track basic information unless the user has changed their browser settings to prevent specific types of information collection. Information tracked by web servers includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses, browser details, timestamps and referring pages. None of this information can personally identify specific visitors to this site. Mesothelioma.com does not use any information gathered by web servers to try to identify visitors to the site. The information is tracked for routine administration purposes.

When contacting us through Mesothelioma.com, you may be asked to voluntarily enter your name, email address or other details to help you with your experience. You will never be asked to provide credit card numbers or other financial information. We may use the information we collect from you when you register, sign up for our alerts, respond to a survey or marketing communication or use certain other site features in the following ways:

  • To improve user experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product offerings in which you are most interested
  • To follow up with you after correspondence, including email, text or phone inquiries

Telephone

The telephone number displayed on Mesothelioma.com connects visitors to one of our sponsoring law firms, Early, Lucarelli, Sweeney & Meisenkothen (ELSM). Any personal information collected is used to send you a free mesothelioma information guide, mesothelioma book, wristband and other relevant information based upon your specific condition. By providing your phone number you agree to receive additional information and updates via text. You may opt-out from receiving text messages by texting “STOP.”

Cookies and Web Beacons

Where necessary, Mesothelioma.com uses cookies to store information about a visitor’s preferences and history to better serve the visitor. On their own, cookies and other web browser data collection technologies do not identify a site visitor and Mesothelioma.com does not use them for the purposes of identifying users.

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser that enable the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. We use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

You can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Since each browser is a little different, look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookie preferences. If you turn cookies off, some site features may be disabled.

Advertising partners and other third parties may also use cookies, scripts and/or web beacons to track visitors to our site in order to display advertisements and other useful information. Such tracking is done by the third parties through their own servers and is subject to their own privacy policies. Our Privacy Policy does not cover the use of cookies by third parties.

Social Media (Features) and Widgets

Mesothelioma.com includes Social Media Features, including Facebook Widgets, such as the Share this button. These Features may collect your IP address as well as the page you are visiting. Additionally, they may use cookies to enable the Feature to function properly. Social Media Features and Widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. Your interactions with these Features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing the Feature in question.

Access

Mesothelioma.com respects your control over your information and, upon request, we will confirm whether we hold or are processing information that we have collected from you.

You also have the right to amend or update inaccurate or incomplete PII, request deletion of your PII, or request that we no longer use it. Under certain circumstances we will not be able to fulfill your request, such as if it interferes with our regulatory obligations, affects legal matters, we cannot verify your identity, or it involves disproportionate cost or effort, but in any event, we will respond to your request within a reasonable time frame and provide you an explanation. In order to make such a request of us, please email us at [email protected].

Please note that for PII that we have obtained or received for processing from a separate, unaffiliated entity which determined the means and purposes of the information gathered, all such requests should be made to that entity directly. We will honor and support any instructions they provide us with respect to your PII.

Third-Party Disclosure

Mesothelioma.com does not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your PII without advance notice to you. Website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business or serving our users, may use cookies and other technologies to gather information about your activities on Mesothelioma.com. If you wish to avoid third parties gathering such information, you can turn off cookies in your browser settings or use other web tools to opt out of information-gathering activities.

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We are therefore not responsible for the information-gathering activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We may also disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or other legal process, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect our safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud or respond to a government request.

02. Security

Security

Mesothelioma.com takes appropriate security measures to protect personal information against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction. Access of PII made available to Mesothelioma.com is restricted to those who need such access in the course of their duties for us.

Your efforts to secure your information play an important role in protecting your data. For example, turning off cookies in your browser. Mesothelioma.com may have links to third-party websites that we do not own or control. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of these third-party websites, which may differ from ours. It is up to you to check the privacy policy of any third-party website.

Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)

CalOPPA requires commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches beyond California to require any person or company that operates websites collecting PII from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared.
According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously.
  • Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our homepage or as a minimum, on the first significant page after entering our website.
  • Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can be easily found on the page specified above.

Changes to the Privacy Notice

We may update this Privacy Notice and its [effective/last updated/last modified] date to reflect changes to our data governance practices. You will be notified of any Privacy Policy changes on our Privacy Policy page. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.

Controlling Your Privacy

Note that you can change your browser settings to disable cookies if you have privacy concerns. Disabling cookies for all sites is not recommended as it may interfere with your use of some sites. The best option is to disable or enable cookies on a per-site basis. Consult your browser documentation for instructions on how to block cookies and other tracking mechanisms.

Do Not Track (DNT)

We honor Do Not Track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

CAN-SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

When you contact us through our contact form, we collect your email address in order to send information, respond to inquiries, and/or reply to other requests or questions.

To be in accordance with CAN-SPAM, we agree that, if at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us at [email protected] and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.
