Privacy Policy

Whole Woman’s Health, LLC, and clinics managed by Whole Woman’s Health (collectively “Whole Woman’s Health”, “WWH,” or “we”) are committed to treating your personal data with care and respect.

Important note: This Privacy Policy does not apply to information you may share with Whole Woman’s Health in connection with your receipt of healthcare services online or via in-person visits at clinics managed by Whole Woman’s Health. Such information is protected by state and federal law.

Information Automatically Collected From You

We and our service providers may automatically collect certain technical information from your computer or mobile device over time and across different websites when you use the Site, such as your Internet Protocol address, your geographic location, your browser type, your operating system, the pages you view on the Site, the pages you view immediately before and after you access the Site, and the search terms you enter on the Site. This information allows us and our service providers to recognize you and personalize your experience if you return to the Site, to improve the Site and the services we provide, and to provide you with Targeted Advertisements. We and our service providers (including Tealium) may collect this information using “pixels” and “tags,” which place and read “cookies,” which are small text files that many websites save on your computer when you visit and access when you return, or similar technologies (pixels, tags, and cookies hereinafter referred to collectively as “cookies”). We also collect this information by setting a unique anonymous identifier called User ID, set by Universal Google Analytics. User ID helps identify unique users across multiple devices and browsers. Clearing your cookies does not ensure that you will not be recognized as the same unique visitor even after you cleared them. 

If you are accessing this website from a country in the European Union, please note that this website and the information contained in it is not provided for or directed to you.

How We Use Your Information

We and our affiliates may use the information we collect from or about you through the Site for a number of purposes, including, but not limited to:

  • providing you with products, services, or information you request;
  • processing any transactions you have authorized;
  • following up on services or information we provided to you;
  • contacting you about fundraising campaigns or advocacy efforts;
  • delivering advertisements targeted to your interests based on your previous activity on the Site (commonly referred to as “Targeted Advertisements”) as well as other marketing communications, promotional materials, or advertisements that may be of interest to you;
  • conducting research;
  • promoting Whole Woman’s Health’s services or illustrating the importance of reproductive health and rights;
  • processing an employment, internship, or volunteer application;
  • providing you with information about the Site or required notices;
  • allowing us to improve the Site and the services we provide, such as by better tailoring our content to our users’ needs and preferences;
  • generating and analyzing statistics about your use of the Site; and
  • detecting, preventing, and responding to fraud, intellectual property infringement, violations of our Terms of Use, violations of law, or other misuse of the Site.

We also may combine or aggregate any of the information we collect through the Site or elsewhere for any of these purposes, including for the delivery of Targeted Advertisements.

To further demonstrate how we and our affiliates may use the information we collect from or about you through the Site, we provide the following examples:

In addition, your information will be added to one or more of our supporter lists and databases, and you may be contacted about other Whole Woman’s Health activities, news, and/or fundraising campaigns.
  • If you view certain content on the Site, we or a service provider of ours may later display an advertisement related to that content on a different webpage that you visit through the Site or on another non-Whole Woman’s Health website that has a relationship with the service provider.
  • If you use our website to submit your resume or materials for a paid or volunteer position, your information will be stored in a centralized database and may be accessible to our separately incorporated affiliates, who may be seeking candidates for full-time, part-time, or volunteer positions.

  • as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or other legal process, a court order, or government reporting obligations;
  • when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary (a) to protect our rights, the integrity of the Site, or your safety or the safety of others, or (b) to detect, prevent, or respond to fraud, intellectual property infringement, violations of our Terms of Use, violations of law, or other misuse of the Site; and
  • to service providers, advisors, and other third parties to the extent reasonably necessary to proceed with the negotiation or completion of a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of our assets.

In addition, we may share de-identified information, such as reports on user demographics and traffic patterns, with third parties, including researchers.

The Site also may contain links to third-party websites and applications for your convenience and information. Whole Woman’s Health does not control those third-party websites and applications or their privacy practices, which may differ from ours, and we do not endorse or make any representations about those third-party websites and applications. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for the collection and use of your information by third-party websites and applications that are not under our control, and such information is not governed by this Privacy Policy. Remember that we cannot protect your privacy once you leave the Site, so when you visit third-party websites and applications, we encourage you to review their privacy policies and be careful about the information you submit or share.

Your Choices

If you do not want the Site to collect information through the use of cookies, you can set your web browser to reject cookies from the Site. Each browser is different, so you should check your browser’s “Help” menu to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

In addition to the records left on your computer by cookies, your browser and operating system contain other records of your web browsing and other actions (e.g., browser history). As with cookies, you can find information about how to clear these history trails in your browser’s “Help” menu.

Online Advertisements

Our third-party advertising partners may use cookies and similar technologies on the Site and on third-party websites on which our ads appear, which allow the advertising partners to track certain information about user behavior, such as “click-stream data.” The information practices of these advertising partners are governed by their own privacy policies and are not governed by this Privacy Policy.

Where Information is Processed

Information collected through the Site will be processed in and subject to the laws of the United States. In addition, we may transfer your information outside the United States to our affiliates and service providers located in other countries.

How Your Information is Secured

We strive to maintain reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to safeguard the information collected through the Site. However, no information system can be 100% secure, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information. Moreover, we are not responsible for the security of information you transmit to the Site over networks that we do not control, including the Internet and wireless networks. If you have concerns about the security of sensitive information, do not send it electronically.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

If we make any revisions that materially change the ways in which we use or disclose the information previously collected from you through the Site, we will give you the opportunity to consent to such changes before applying them to that information.
