If you choose to register or update an existing member profile with HabitNu site by Prana Diabetes or access certain functionality on the Site, you may be required to submit Personal Information. "Personal Information" means information that we can use to identify or contact you, such as your telephone number or email address. Some of our interactive tools and services may request you to submit health information, which would also be considered Personal Information.

Some of our tools do not retain your Personal Information, while others store your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You may also be asked to provide authorization for uses of personal information in addition to what is in this Privacy Policy when you use certain tools. In such event, Prana Diabetes will not make any use of your personal information in ways other than as provided in this Privacy Policy unless you provide such additional consent in connection with the specific tool at the time you submit Personal Information in order to use the tool.

Public Forums

Prana Diabetes may feature community areas and public forums where users with similar interests or medical concerns can share information and support one another or where users can post questions for experts to answer.

Any information (including Personal Information) you share in any online community area of the Site is by design open to the public and is not private. You should think carefully before posting any Personal Information in any public forum. What you post can be seen, disclosed to or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways we cannot control or predict, including to contact you for unauthorized purposes. As with any public forum on any site, the information you post may also show up in third-party search engines.
