The Ways We Use Your Information
Ancora Heart uses the information that you provide or that we collect to authenticate users and to send information and notifications to you relating to our company and our products.

When We Disclose Your Information
Your personally identifiable information is not shared with any third party except as stated herein. Ancora Heart employees, agents and contractors must have a legitimate business reason to obtain access to the personally identifiable information you may provide to us. We may share your personally identifiable information with companies that provide services to us, including outside contractors or agents who help us manage our information activities, but they may only use your personally identifiable information to provide us with a specific service and not for any other purpose.

We may also share your personal information if we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce our Terms of Use, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Ancora Heart, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.

In the event that Ancora Heart is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from our users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.

Ancora Heart discloses automatically collected and other aggregate non-personally-identifiable information with interested third parties to assist such parties in understanding the usage, viewing, and demographic patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality available on or through the Site.

Your Choices
You may, of course, decline to share your personally identifiable information with Ancora Heart. Additionally, in some cases, we may give you the opportunity to opt out of certain uses of your personally identifiable information.

Data Security
We take certain precautions to ensure your information is kept private. We use reasonable measures to protect user information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to member information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. Please note that we cannot guarantee the absolute security of personally identifiable information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of personally identifiable information at any time.

Updates To This Privacy Policy:
We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When we do, we will also revise the “last modified” date at the top of the Privacy Policy. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the service constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any updates.

Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of young children is important to us. For that reason, Ancora Heart does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information on the Site from persons under 13 years-of-age. The Site is available only to users who are at least 13 years old. If Ancora Heart learns that personally-identifiable information of persons less than 13-years-of-age has been collected through the Site, then Ancora Heart will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.

International Visitors:
If you choose to use the Site from any jurisdiction other than the United States, such jurisdiction may have laws governing data collection and use that differ from U.S. law. Please note that you are transferring your personally identifiable information to the United States and by providing your personally identifiable information on or through the Site you consent to that transfer.
