Cookies and Other Tracking Methods

Ganar may use “cookies”, or small text files that are stored on your computer’s hard drive.  Cookies ensure that the Sites’ content is presented in the most effective manner for you and your computer.  

Strictly Necessary Cookies 
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Sites and use their features.  Without these cookies, services you have requested, such as remembering your login details or submitted information, cannot be provided. 

Performance Cookies 
These cookies collect anonymous information on how people use the Sites.  For example, we use Google Analytics cookies to help us understand how individuals arrive at the Sites, browse or use the Sites, and highlight areas where we can improve such as navigation and marketing campaigns.  The data stored by these cookies never shows personal details from which your individual identity can be established. 

Functionality Cookies 
These cookies remember choices you make such as the country from which you visit the Sites, language, and search parameters.  These can then be used to provide you with an experience more appropriate to your selections and to make the visits more tailored and pleasant.  The information these cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. 

We may use different kinds of cookies including session ID cookies and persistent cookies.  Session ID cookies are used to personalize your user experience, to determine ways to improve the Sites and the Services we offer.  These cookies are deleted when you close your browser session.  Persistent cookies are used to collect information such as IP addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. 

You can change your settings for cookies and similar technologies by clicking on the cookie consent box on the Sites.  In addition, you can refuse or accept cookies from the Sites at any time by activating the settings on your browser.  You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of the Sites may not work properly if you do.  Check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.  To find out more about cookies, visit www.aboutcookies.org. 

We may also use technologies similar to cookies, such as Google Analytics.  We use Google Analytics to collect anonymized statistics in order to improve the Sites and the Services.  We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with Personal Information.  You can selectively disable Google Analytics by installing the opt-out component provided by Google on your browser.  You can refer to the following links for more information: Google Analytics and privacy and Google Analytics opt-out browser. 

Do Not Track

Many web browsers allow for the use of a “Do Not Track” function to inform websites that you do not want your online activities tracked.  At this time, we do not track your or any other users’ Personal Information over time and across third-party websites.  We therefore do not respond to browser “Do Not Track” signals. 

Uses of Your Personal Information 

Ganar may use your Personal Information to: 

  • Operate our business (e.g., manage your Account, provide and personalize our Services, and process payments)
  • Provide customer support
  • Communicate with you, including about the Services and the related services offered by Doctors that treat you (e.g., reviews and feedback)
  • Provide you with newsletters, articles, alerts, announcements, invitations, and other information about the Services
  • Better design the Sites to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use
  • Analyze your interactions with the Services and third parties’ online services so we can tailor our advertising in ways we think will interest you
  • Ensure the security and integrity of the Services
  • Enforce our Terms of Use and other legal terms and policies
  • Protect our and others’ interests, rights, and property (e.g., to protect our copyrighted materials)
  • Comply with applicable legal requirements, such as tax and other government regulations and industry standards, contracts, and law enforcement requests
  • Track and monitor end user interaction with the Services

We may aggregate and/or de-identify data about visitors to the Sites and use and disclose it for any purpose, including product and service development and improvement activities and clinical research purposes.

Sharing of Your Personal Information 

Ganar will share your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy or when you otherwise consent (if required by law).  We may share your Personal Information with our partners and affiliates as necessary to contact you or provide you with the requested Services.  We may disclose your Personal Information to the Doctors, pharmacies, or other persons or entities working on your behalf, including without limitation, for arranging appointments or communications, providing telehealth or other health care services as part of the Services, obtaining medication, or for payment or health care operations purposes.  Ganar also may share this Personal Information to outside contractors, advisors, auditors, vendors, consultants, or others engaged by Ganar to assist in providing financial or operational activities on Ganar’s behalf, including technical and processing services and analysis of the Sites’ performance. Additionally, we reserve the right to disclose to third parties non-personally identifiable information collected for any lawful purpose, including but not limited to, aggregate or de-identified data.

Ganar may disclose your Personal Information to third parties when obligated or permitted to do so by law or if we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on Ganar or to investigate, prevent, or resolve any suspected or actual unlawful activities, such as potential fraud, or a perceived irregularity in any audits of the accuracy of any documentation or information submitted to Ganar by you or on your behalf, as deemed appropriate by Ganar.

Ganar may be required or permitted by law to share your Personal Information, without prior notice to you, to maintain, safeguard and/or preserve all the rights and/or property of Ganar and perform under demanding conditions in an effort to safeguard the personal safety of users of the Sites and/or the general public, including but not limited to, reporting adverse reactions to certain items, product recalls, preventing disease, and for health research purposes.  

Finally, Ganar may disclose or transfer information, including any Personal Information, to a successor entity (or potential buyer) in connection with a proposed or actual corporate merger, acquisition, consolidation, sale of assets, bankruptcy, or other corporate change.  In addition, in the event Ganar becomes the subject of an insolvency proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, Ganar or its liquidator, administrator, receiver, or administrative receiver may sell, license, or otherwise dispose of such information in a transaction approved by the court. 

Links to Other Websites 

The Sites may contain links to other websites that have information we believe may be of interest to you.  We do not endorse these websites.  While we try to link only to websites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the content of the websites or privacy practices employed by other websites.  We encourage you to read the privacy policy of each website you visit that may collect information or ask you to disclose Personal Information.  This Privacy Policy does not apply to links to our other site GeroCare.

Cross-Border Transfers

All of the information that you provide to Ganar will be stored and processed in Nigeria.  If you are accessing the Sites from other jurisdictions, please be advised that you are transferring your Personal Information to us in Nigeria where data protection and privacy laws may be more or less stringent than the laws of your country.  BY USING THE SITES AND/OR THE SERVICES, YOU CONSENT TO THE TRANSFER AND USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

Retention of Personal Information 

Except to the extent prohibited by law, and subject to this Privacy Policy, we will retain and use your Personal Information for as long as it is needed to provide you with the Services you have requested or access to the Sites and the Services, to document our business relationship with you, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Security Methods

Ganar has implemented commercially reasonable physical, technical, and administrative security measures designed to protect your Personal Information, including a secure firewall and use of security infrastructure.  As an additional security measure, your Personal Information is also encrypted during transmission using SSL security, an industry standard secure technology.  SSL encryption is indicated on your Web browser by the display of a lock or key on the browser status bar.  Nonetheless, no such measure is ever 100% effective; therefore, we do not guarantee that your Personal Information will be secure from theft, loss, or unauthorized access or use, and we make no representation as to the reasonableness, efficacy, or appropriateness of the measures we use to safeguard such Personal Information.  We encourage you to use caution when using the Internet.  This includes not sharing your passwords.

If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your Account has been compromised), please immediately notify us.

Your Rights

Depending on your jurisdiction, you may have certain rights regarding our collection, use, and sharing of your Personal Information. If you have any questions regarding these rights, please contact us. Please note that we may request additional information to respond to or fulfill any requests regarding your rights under applicable laws or regulations.  

You can always opt out of any subscription for emails, involving any updates, information, postings, news, and/or press releases, by clicking “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of the email. We might still send you some important emails, like responding to you by email if you send us a request or comment.

Children

Ganar does not knowingly or specifically collect Personal Information from users under the age of 13 and no one under age 13 is authorized to submit any information, including Personal Information, on the Sites.  If we determine that such information has been inadvertently collected on anyone under the age of 13, we will take the necessary steps to ensure that such information is deleted from our system’s database.  If you are a parent or guardian and become aware that your child has provided us with information, please contact us using one of the methods specified below.
