Except as required by law, DOCTOR’S OTC is not responsible for any damages or liabilities relating to any such security failures. Transmission of Personal Information is at Your own risk. Our Website contains links to other websites that do not belong to DOCTOR’S OTC. DOCTOR’S OTC is not responsible for, nor can DOCTOR’S OTC ensure the privacy practices or content of such other sites, and this Policy does not apply to those other websites. If You have any questions about security on our website, you can email us at Info@DoctorsOTC.com
Consent to Transfer, Processing, and Storage of Personal Information
As DOCTOR’S OTC is a global organization, we may transfer your Personal Information between DOCTOR’S OTC offices in Canada and the United States of America, or to third parties and business partners as described above that are located in various countries around the world. By using Our websites and Services or providing any Personal Information to Us, where applicable law permits, you consent to the transfer, processing, and storage of such information outside of Your country of residence where data protection standards may be different.
Retention of Personal Information
We will retain your Personal Information as needed to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. We will retain and use Your Personal Information as necessary to comply with Our business requirements, legal obligations, resolve disputes, protect our assets, and enforce Our agreements.
Patient/Client Data Storage for Health Professional
If you are a Patient or Consumer, you acknowledge that Your use of Our Service is solely through Your Health Professional and that DOCTOR’S OTC may share Personal Information with Your Health Professional for the purposes of facilitating the Product transaction on behalf of Your Practitioner or Affiliate.
If You are a Health Professional, by using DOCTOR’S OTC, You agree that, with respect to other users’ Personal Information that You obtain through DOCTOR’S OTC or through a DOCTOR’S OTC-related communication or DOCTOR’S OTC-facilitated transaction, DOCTOR’S OTC hereby grants to You a license to use such information only for DOCTOR’S OTC-related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages. DOCTOR’S OTC does not permit spam. Therefore, without limiting the foregoing, you are not licensed to add the name of someone who has purchased an item from You to Your mail list (email or physical mail) without their explicit consent. DOCTOR’S OTC owns the data storage, databases and all rights to the DOCTOR’S OTC application.
Like many websites, DOCTOR’S OTC uses automatic data collection tools, such as cookies, embedded web links, and web beacons. These tools collect certain standard information that your browser sends to our website. Examples include your browser type and the address of the website from which you arrived at our website. We automatically receive and record information on our server logs from Your browser including IP addresses, cookie information, browsing history and the DOCTOR’S OTC website pages requested. We only use this data in aggregate form, for statistical purposes, and not in a manner that would give Us enough information to identify You personally. This type of aggregate data enables Us to figure out how often users access parts of the DOCTOR’S OTC website, what types of Products they are interested in, where they are generally located and what are their general online behavior patterns. We utilize this information so that we can improve the DOCTOR’S OTC website, our product selection and the Service. This information may be shared with advertisers and other third parties on an aggregated basis, but it does not include the Personal Information of individual Users.
They may also collect information about:
Your Internet Protocol (IP) address. This is a number automatically assigned to Your computer or device whenever You connect to the Internet. Among other things, the IP address allows web servers to locate and identify Your device for the purpose of facilitating online communications between You and other parties you engage with on the Internet.
Clickstream behavior. This includes, for example, the pages You view and the links you click. These tools help make your visit to Our website easier, more efficient, and more valuable by providing You with a customized experience and recognizing You when You return.
Some web browsers may give You the ability to enable a “do not track” feature that sends signals to the websites You visit, indicating that You do not want your online activities tracked. This is different from blocking or deleting cookies, as browsers with a “do not track” feature enabled may still accept cookies.
No industry standard currently exists on how companies should respond to “do not track” signals, although one may develop in the future. DOCTOR’S OTC websites functionality is not currently able to recognize and respond to “do not track” signals. If We do in the future, we will describe how in this Privacy Statement.
As part of these efforts to improve your online experience, we use a service provided by both Google and Facebook called “remarketing”. This permits Us to reach people who have previously visited our site and show them relevant advertisements when they visit other sites across the Internet in the Google Display Network and Facebook Ads platform.
We may provide links to other third-party websites and services that are outside Our control and not covered by this Privacy Statement. We encourage You to review the privacy statements posted on those websites (and all websites) You visit.

These choices do not apply to service notifications or other required communications that are considered part of certain Services, which You may receive periodically unless You stop using or cancel the Service in accordance with our Terms of Service.
By using Our websites, Services, or otherwise providing Personal Information to Us, you agree that We may communicate with You electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to Your use. For example, if We learn of a security system breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice on Our websites, by sending an email, or otherwise contacting You.
DOCTOR’S OTC encourages parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online activities. DOCTOR’S OTC does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children without appropriate parental or guardian consent. If You believe that we may have collected Personal Information from someone under the applicable age of consent in Your country without proper consent, please let Us know using the methods described in the ‘Contact Us’ section of this Privacy Statement and We will take appropriate measures to investigate and address the issue promptly.
