PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS POLICY DOES NOT APPLY TO SENSITIVE CLIENT INFORMATION RELATED TO DRUG TESTING AND THE SPECIFIC PRIVACY LAWS RELATING TO THE HANDLING OF YOUR HEALTH INFORMATION. FOR INFORMATION ON THOSE MATTERS, PLEASE SEE OUR HEALTH INSURANCE PORTABILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY ACT ("HIPAA") NOTICE OF PRIVACY PRACTICES. This Policy applies only to information collected through this Site and not to information collected offline or through any other websites (even if affiliated with Aegis or linked to by this Site).
The Information We Collect
There are two kinds of information that websites can obtain about you: (A) Anonymous Information and (B) Personally Identifiable Information.
(A) Anonymous Information: "Anonymous Information" is data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. Anonymous Information is aggregate data that websites use to administer their sites. This Anonymous Information comprises information that cannot be used to identify or contact you, and may include such information as your browser type or your Internet Protocol (IP) address (if not deleted, clipped or anonymized). Aegis may from time to time retain third parties to help us collect and aggregate Site information.
IP Addresses. An IP address is a unique string of numbers that is assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers, administer our Site, avoid hacking attacks on the Site’s servers, and may use it to gather broad demographic information. We do not link IP addresses to any personally identifiable information, even if such information is voluntarily provided by a user.
(B) Personally Identifiable Information: "Personally Identifiable Information" is any information that personally identifies you, such as your name, email address, or your telephone number. Similarly, to the extent that anonymous information is combined with Personally Identifiable Information, we treat the combined information as Personally Identifiable Information. For example, you may be asked to provide the following information:
Email Correspondence. Contained in the Site are links or forms that can be used to contact this Site so you can comment, make a complaint, make suggestions, and ask questions. Your email address is required on this form. Aegis may put information from email on file, but does not currently share, sell, license, or transmit this information with third parties without express authorization from you.
Updates and Other Communications. We may offer visitors to this Site the opportunity to sign up to receive updates or other email communications from this Site, or to share this Site with others. In order to sign up for these communications, we ask for contact information, such as name, organization, and email address. We also may offer the opportunity for you to receive mailings that we think may be of interest to you.
User Accounts. To participate in certain features of the Site, we may request that you create an account by providing personal information (including without limitation, your name, address, phone, and email) and creating a user ID and password. We will use this information to maintain your account. We may also use this information to send you announcements of new Site features, special offers, and promotional materials that we think may be of interest to you. You may elect not to receive such information by opting out as described below.
How We Use Gathered Information
Aegis may use the information you share with us in the following ways:
(A) Anonymous Information: Anonymous Information is used internally for Site administration, troubleshooting, data analysis, auditing, and research to help improve the quality of this Site and its design. We may share such aggregated, non-personally identifiable information, such as demographics, with existing and prospective business partners and advertisers. We never connect aggregate information with Personally Identifiable Information, and none of the Anonymous Information we share will contain any information that identifies you individually.
We support the right of visitors to choose. You will be given the right to opt-out of receiving any promotional materials about Aegis or its partners whenever you are asked to provide Personally Identifiable Information on this Site. If you do not opt-out at that time, but later decide that you do not wish to receive future communications of this nature you can contact us at info@Aegis.com or at the address provided below, indicating that you no longer want to receive information relating to this Site.
Aegis will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
Security of information communicated by or to us over the Internet is of utmost concern to us; however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. This Site incorporates reasonable safeguards to protect the security, integrity, and privacy of the personal information we have collected. We have put in place reasonable precautions to protect information from loss, misuse, and alteration. Please do not use email to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. While we strive to protect your personal information, Aegis cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or through this Site.
Disclosure of Information Through Business Transfers
As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, merge, or partner with other companies or businesses, and in so doing, acquire customer information. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. Similarly, in the event that a portion or substantially all of Aegis’s assets are sold or transferred to a third party, customer information (including Personally Identifiable Information) likely would be one of the transferred business assets.
The Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA") defines a "Child" as anyone under the age of 13. Aegis strictly adheres to COPPA. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information obtained through our Site from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our Site is structured to attract anyone under 13.

Any claim related to the Site or this Policy shall be brought in a federal or state court in Nashville, Tennessee within one year after the claim arises.
