We Respect Your Privacy
This website has been created to provide our visitors with resources to assist them in the management of their diabetes. We respect your privacy and want to keep it protected. For that reason, we are providing you with this Privacy & Legal Notices section, which explains the way we collect and use your information.

Privacy Policy
The Information We Collect and How We Use It

Personal Information
DiabetesLocal is serious about protecting our users’ personal information. You can always browse our website without providing any personal information.  The only personal information we collect, use or store is what you provide to us voluntarily on our website, such as your name, address, telephone number, and E-mail address.

We use personal information you provide to respond to requests that you make of us and from time to time, we may refer to your information to better understand your needs and to determine how to improve our website.

Under no circumstances will we sell, rent, or lease your personal information to others.

Although we take appropriate measures to prevent unauthorized disclosures of your personal information, we cannot assure you unauthorized disclosures will never take place. For example, if someone is able to find out your password and gain access to your profile, inadvertent disclosures may take place.

General Tracking Information
We also collect non-personal information to track data about our websites, such as the total number of visits to our websites, the number of visitors to each page of our websites, and the domain names of our visitors' internet service providers. We use this information to understand how our visitors use our websites so that we can make improvements when possible.

Access Logs
Each web page access is recorded in a log file. The contents of the log file are analyzed to determine how many visitors we serve, what pages they look at most, and from where they connect. Individual session data is not kept or examined. Our web site statistics are open to the public.

If you are worried about information we place in the cookie, you may delete the file(s) at the end of each browser session.
We use Cookies to understand how our visitors use our sites so we can make improvements when possible.
