Welcome to ELEOSHUB, an online community website (“Site”) and thank you for reviewing this Privacy Statement. This Site is operated by ELEOSHUB, and is designed to connect persons (such as those with certain health conditions, caregivers, and professionals) who are interested in sharing and receiving information regarding various health conditions (the “Service”).
ELEOSHUB, the operator of this Site and the administrator of the Service, understands that users of this Service may provide personal information relating to health conditions, demographics, and contact information. This Statement informs you of our practices with respect to the online collection, use, and disclosure of personal information by means of this Service. We reserve the right to change, modify, add, or remove provisions of this Privacy Statement, and any changes to this Privacy Statement will be posted here. Please refer back to this Privacy Statement regularly because your use of this Site signifies that you agree to be bound by this Privacy Statement, as might be amended from time to time.
What Information About You Do We Collect?
You may view some content on this Site without becoming a member. For example, you may review blogs and discussions written by registered users of the site. However, you must register in order to post a profile, submit items for discussion, write a blog, write comments about discussion entries and blog entries, post a message, or communicate with others via this Service. At the registration page, you are asked to provide certain personal information, including a functioning e-mail address at which we may contact you, your location, your gender, and your date of birth. Upon registering, you become a Member.
You have the option to provide additional personal information, for example, to create an extended online profile. In addition, it is possible for you to provide personal information about yourself when you post content on the Service or communicate with other registered Members.
We also collect “clickstream” data, including your IP address and what pages you visit on the Site, so we can monitor and improve the performance of the Site and Service and learn how different aspects of the Site and Service are used.
What We Do With Your Personal Information
We use personal information that you provide to us in several ways. First, we use it to confirm your Membership, and to understand better who is visiting our Site and using our Service, to help us improve the Service and present content which better suits your interests.
Second, we may use the personal information you give us to send you information about ELEOSHUB and the Service, as well as material on behalf of third parties with whom we have a business relationship. By third parties we mean, for example, entities such as health associations and advertisers that link to our Site or that make use of our Service. The information we send you may, on occasion, contain advertising or requests either from us or from a third party on whose behalf we would send the information. For example, we may contact you to see whether you are interested in being considered for an upcoming clinical trial that is being sponsored by a pharmaceutical company.
Third, when you register for the Service, your profile becomes visible to users of the Service and your profile may be found by users of the Service. You can control how your profile and the data it contains are shared on the Site by using the privacy settings available to you in the account settings section of the Site. Additionally, when you post information on the Site forums, such as by creating or replying to journal entries, discussions or messages, that information is considered to have been publicly disclosed by you, and is therefore no longer considered personal information for purposes of this agreement.
Fifth, ELEOSHUB may disclose personal information that you give us to appropriate persons in circumstances where we have a good faith belief that a user is likely to cause bodily harm to themselves or others.
Sixth, ELEOSHUB may share your email address and profile information with the organizations (for example, non-profit organizations) that sponsor ELEOSHUB communities that you join.
Otherwise, we do not share, sell, or otherwise disclose individually identifiable personal information to any entity that we do not control, without your prior consent, except as required by law (see Legal Process, below). For example, we do not rent our Member lists to other entities, however we may provide them with aggregate data about our Members that does not contain contact or other individually identifiable personal information. Examples of such aggregate data include counts of members belonging to a specific community or in a particular geographic region.
You are not required to provide any personal information in order to view information that appears on this Site. However, in order to post content or see profiles of Members or communicate with Members, you must register. When you register, you must provide the personal information designated as “required” on the registration page. After you have registered, you will have the opportunity to provide additional personal information and to create an extended personal profile, including the posting of a photograph. Whether you provide this additional personal information is entirely your option, although it may affect your full enjoyment of the Service.
If you do not wish us to use or disclose personal information that you provide through this Site as disclosed in this Privacy Statement, you should not create an ELEOSHUB account, or if you already have an ELEOSHUB account, you should deactivate your membership, as described in the “Deactivating Your Membership” section.

ELEOSHUB employs commercially reasonable security measures consistent with standard industry practice, to safeguard personal and other information collected through this Site.

ELEOSHUB uses advertising to promote ELEOSHUB elsewhere on the Internet, and in other places. In some cases, we use technologies to track and understand what happens after someone sees, or clicks on, an advertisement for ELEOSHUB. We use these technologies to measure the effectiveness of our advertising. In particular, we use the conversion tracking feature of Google AdWords to measure the effectiveness of AdWords advertisements in bringing new members to ELEOSHUB. You can request more detail about this topic by sending an e-mail to info@ELEOSHUB.com.
We allow another company to serve advertisements on our Site. That company may set “cookies” on your computer. We will not share any individually identifiable personal information that you provide to us with such advertising company, and it will not have access to your personal profile. However, it is possible that such advertising company may, through your use of this Site and other Websites, develop its own separate profile of you. Any information collected or stored by the ad-service or the cookies is subject to the terms and policies of that company.
Sale or Merger
If ELEOSHUB is sold to or merges with another company not owned by ELEOSHUB, you should expect that some or all of the personal information collected from this Site may be transferred to the buyer/surviving company. If so, ELEOSHUB will seek to obligate the acquiring company to use any personal information transferred by this Site in a manner consistent with this Privacy Statement, but cannot guarantee that it will be able to impose that requirement, or that the acquiring company will comply.
If you do not wish the personal information you provide to be subject to this possibility, you should deactivate your membership, as described in the “Deactivating Your Membership” section.
You should be aware that ELEOSHUB may be required to disclose your personal information to the government or other entities in connection with a legal process, such as in response to a valid subpoena, court order in judicial or regulatory proceedings, or pursuant to a valid law enforcement investigative demand.
