Privacy Policy

Dr. Budgets Online Privacy Policy
Dr. Budgets is committed to safeguarding the confidential information of its clients. This Online Privacy Policy describes how we manage this responsibility.  We hold all personal information provided to the company in the strictest confidence. This includes all personal information that we collect from you or obtain in connection with any of the services provided by Dr. Budgets.

Information We Collect
When you visit our website you may provide us with two types of information: (1) personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis; and (2) website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our website.

  1. Personal Information You Choose to Provide
    You will provide us information about yourself, your address, and your email address when you choose to work with Dr. Budgets.
  2. Website Use Information
    Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and web server logs to collect information about how our website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited just before and just after our website.  This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.

How We Use Personal Information
Our primary purpose in collecting information about you is to provide you with budget services.  We may also decide to use information about you to track how you use our site. In addition, we may aggregate the information that you provide with the information that other users provide in order to conduct research, analysis, or studies for our own purposes (i.e. not related to providing you with specific products or services).

We may decide to send our users email. If you decide that you do not want to receive commercial emails from us, you can opt out from receiving such emails by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link provided at the bottom of every commercial email. Please note that if you choose to opt out, we will still send you email relating to specific products or services that you purchase, or email we believe is pertinent to any communication that you have sent to us. If you later decide time that you would like to receive commercial emails from us, you can re-add yourself to our communication list.

What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Browsers are usually set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our site will not function as effectively when viewed by the users. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses.

How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
As you visit our website, the site uses cookies to differentiate you from other users. Cookies, in conjunction with our web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback to continuously improve our website and better serve our clients. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not store any personal information that your browser provided to us in your cookies.

How We Share Information
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personal information.  This applies to both current and former clients.  We do share your information with other people or companies in the following situations:

  1. Sharing Your Information with Subcontractors. In our efforts to provide the best quality service and experience to you, we may share information with subcontractors that provide us with services. These services may include, among other things, helping to provide services that you request, to create or maintain our databases, to research and analyze the people who request services or information from us, and/or helping to process payment card information.  Any party with whom we share your personal information is required either contractually or by law to keep it confidential and not to disclose it without your consent and to only use such information as required for the services to be performed.
  2. Law Enforcement and Legal Process.  We may disclose personal information to government and regulatory agencies to comply with a lawful summons, court order, subpoena, discovery request, fraud investigation, audit, regulatory examination or other valid court, government, or regulatory agency request.
  3. Business Transition. In the event that we, or any portion of our assets, are acquired your information may be transferred to the acquiring company.

How We Protect Your Information
We comply with applicable laws and regulations regarding the protection of personal information. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that restrict access to your personal information, and to help prevent it from becoming disclosed to individuals who are not described in this policy. While we follow reasonable procedures to try to protect the information in our possession, no security system is perfect and we cannot promise, and you should not expect, that your information will remain secure in all circumstances.
