If you choose to register or update an existing account with Emissary or access certain Services, you may be required to provide certain personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number, gender, email address and date of birth, and a username and password to access your Emissary

Some of our Services are interactive and may request that you submit health-related information, along with other information such as your age and gender.
At registration and at various times as you use the Emissary Apps, you will be given the option of providing us with personal information in order to receive informational/promotional newsletters from Emissary and/or directly from third parties. From time to time Emissary may offer users of third party websites the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletters through those websites. If you elect to subscribe to one of our newsletters on a third party website, the operator of that website will provide us with the personal information you have provided in connection
From time to time, Emissary may conduct online research surveys on behalf of itself and third parties through email invitations, pop-up surveys and online focus groups. When participating in a survey, we may require you to provide personal information such as your location and age. The information you submit in a survey may be used by Emissary for research and measurement purposes, as described below, including to measure the effectiveness of content or programs.
User Reviews and Other Public Forums
In connection with the use of our directory, users are able to submit reviews. Our reviews feature in the directory and are open to the public and should not be considered private.
Any information (including personal information) you share in any review, or other forum is by design open to the public and is not private. You should think carefully before posting any personal information in any public forum. What you post can be seen, disclosed to or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways we cannot control or predict, including to
contact you for unauthorized purposes. As with any public forum on any site, the information you post may also show up in third-party search engines.

above. In addition to cookies, we may use other tracking technologies that collect information about your use of the Services, including mobile identifiers and "web beacons" which are small
graphic files (sometimes called “clear GIFs” or “web pixels”) embedded in a web page or email typically used to monitor activity and send relevant information back to a home server (which
can belong to the host site, a network advertiser or some other third party). The information
collected by such tracking technologies may be combined with other information that our partners have access to, including your name, email address and physical address, so that we can send you materials, either electronically or by direct mail, that may be of interest to you.

We may report aggregate information, which is not able to be identified back to an individual user of the Emissary Apps, to our current or prospective advertisers and other business partners.
Emissary Subsidiaries and Corporate Affiliates
Emissary works with third party companies and contractors that help us provide the Services and to otherwise assist in the operation of the Emissary Apps, including those that provide services relating to technology, data analysis, research, email management and deployment, advertising
and marketing and/or content. If you are in the United States, we may also partner with certain service providers to better understand your experience on the Emissary Apps, including technology that enables us to review and optimize the Services based on your interactions with certain pages (e.g., how much time you spend on which pages, which links you choose to click,
what you do and don’t like, etc.) in an anonymized format. Emissary contractors sometimes have limited access to your information in the course of providing products or services to Emissary.
We contractually require that our contractors not use or disclose your information for any purpose other than providing the limited service or function for Emissary.

Emissary Apps before you visit the third party site. In addition, if you see a phrase such as
"Powered by" or "in association with" followed by the name of a company other than Emissary, then you are on a website hosted by a company other than Emissary. When you use a
co-branded service (a service operated with a partner of Emissary), or register or otherwise provide information on a co-branded site, where applicable, we may pass the collected information back to that partner, which may include third party service providers whose services are embedded into and/or appear within the Services.
We may also include social widgets on Emissary Apps which enable you to interact with the associated social media services, e.g., to share an article. These widgets may collect browsing data which may be received by the third party that provided the widget, and are controlled by these third parties. You may be able to manage your privacy preferences directly with the
applicable social network platform.
