  • Like most website operators, Scientific Diet collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.

From time to time, Scientific Diet may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Gathering of Personally Identifying Information 

  • Certain visitors to Scientific Diet’s website choose to interact with Scientific Diet in ways that require Scientific Diet to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that Scientific Diet gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, Scientific Diet operates a permission-based email communication system, which allows us to collect personal information and send emails to people who want to receive them. In each case, Scientific Diet collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Scientific Diet. Scientific Diet does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below.
