How We Use Your Information
ENHANCED MEMBERSHIP EXPERIENCE
We use Personal Information in order to give you a useful membership experience and to help us identify and/or provide information, tickets, jobs, and (or) services that may be of interest to you. We use your Personal Information to support and enhance your use of the Site, and its features including without limitation: fulfilling your order; providing customer service; tracking event participation; and otherwise supporting your use of the Site.
We may also track your past membership purchases, donations, or ticket purchases, to provide you with a personalized profile of your membership istory. In addition, we may notify you about new events, networking opportunities, or special programs, or send you information. In connection with their performance of services to maintain and operate the Site and certain features on the Site, certain trusted third parties may be permitted to access your information. For example, we may use third parties to host the Site; operate various features available on the Site; send emails; analyze data; provide search results and links and assist in fulfilling your orders.
AFFILIATES; CONSULTANTS; THIRD PARTIES
Unless you specifically consent to the disclosure of your Personal Information (via explicit notification, participation in the membership directory, or comments left on the Site), aside from us, only our affiliates, technical consultants, third party auditors and other third parties who make our Site available, enhance its functionality, assist with the processing of your purchases, or provide associated services and/or who deal with you in delivering content, have access to this information, and we require them to agree that they are covered by this policy.
LAW ENFORCEMENT AND INVESTIGATIONS
Please note that HEAL reserves the right to and may disclose Personal Information about you in response to (a) requests from local, state or federal law enforcement officials; (b) any judicial, administrative or similar proceeding or order, such as subpoena; (c) if required by law; or (d) to investigate suspected fraud, harassment, physical threats, or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, the Site rules or policies, or the rights of third parties or to investigate any suspected conduct which we deem improper.
PIXEL TAGS OR BEACONS
In addition to cookies, we also collect Aggregate Information through the use of “tracking pixels,” also known as “beacons.” A tracking pixel is a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a web page and, in combination with a cookie, allows for the collection of information regarding the use of the web page that contains the tracking pixel. We use tracking pixels to tell when an advertisement has been clicked on or otherwise interacted with, and use that information to judge which advertisements are more appealing to users. In some cases, we use third party service providers to help us collect and analyze this information. You can also generally opt-out of receiving personalized ads from third party advertisers and ad networks who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising by visiting the opt-out pages on the NAI website and DAA website.
How We Protect Your Information
We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. However, HEAL will not be liable for disclosures of your Personal Information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. We have undertaken commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized Internet access to visitor data retained in our servers, however, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, HEAL cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided online, and you do so at your own risk.

The Site encrypts your credit card number and other Personal Information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology to provide for the secure transmission of the information from your PC to our servers.
