We also collect information about you, and your use of our site, through the use of Cookies. Cookies are small computer files that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive. They allow us to know how often someone visits our site and the activities they conduct while on our site. This information helps us to dynamically generate web page content specifically designed for you. It also allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our site and for what purpose. To use this site, you must have your Internet browser set to allow the use of cookies.


Disclosure of Your Information

CollegeCare Pharmacy will share your Personal Information (specifically, your account information, profiles and prescription order history) with the pharmacy you have designated to fill your prescription or other order. Authorized employees and agents of that pharmacy will have access to the Personal Information you provide. CollegeCare Pharmacy discloses your account information, profiles and prescription history only to the pharmacy you have designated to fill your prescriptions. Any Personal Information provided to that designated pharmacy is required to be treated in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy, unless you are otherwise notified.

Except as set forth in this and the following paragraphs, CollegeCare Pharmacy will not disclose to other third parties any of your Personal Information. In the following limited circumstances we will consider, and may release, Personal Information to third parties: (1) to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; or (2) in special cases where we in good faith believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may cause injury to others.

CollegeCare Pharmacy may provide information about you, which does not allow you to be identified or contacted (“Aggregate Information”), to third parties. For example, we might inform third parties of the number of users of our site and the activities they conduct while on our site. We might also inform a pharmaceutical company (that may or may not be an advertiser on our site) that “30% of our users live east of the Mississippi” or that “25% of our users have tried alternative medicine.” Depending on the circumstances, we may or may not charge for this information.

Except as provided in this section, CollegeCare Pharmacy will not disclose any Personal Information that you store in My Account. The My Account service is a powerful storage tool that we hope you will enjoy. However, please note that you are responsible for taking all reasonable steps to ensure that no unauthorized person knows your password to My Account. It is your sole responsibility to (1) control the dissemination and use of activation codes and passwords; (2) authorize, monitor, and control access to and use of your My Account password; (3) promptly inform CollegeCare Pharmacy of any need to deactivate a password. To deactivate a password, please call a Customer Care Representative at 1-800-559-5489.
