This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within WellCard to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
WellCard websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on WellCard or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of WellCard; or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of WellCard, or the public.
The WellCard website uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize WellCard pages or register with WellCard site or services, a cookie helps WellCard to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same WellCard website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the WellCard features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the WellCard services or websites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
WellCard secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. WellCard secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled and secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When personal information such as a credit card number is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
