Blueprint Diagnostics is committed to protecting any personal information that you provide to us. In particular, we believe it is important for you to know how we treat information about you that we may receive from this Web site.
In general, you can visit this Web site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers collect the domain names, not the e-mail addresses, of visitors. Our web servers also seek (as many Web sites do) to place a “cookie” (a small data file) on your computer’s hard drive which allows the server to identify the computer when it visits again in order to track statistical information about navigation to and throughout certain areas of our site and to promotions on other sites. This cookie is not used to obtain your name or any personal data. The information that is tracked is used only for internal purposes, such as to improve site navigation and to measure the effectiveness of our promotional placements. It is not shared with anyone other than Blueprint Diagnostics affiliates and contractors who assist Blueprint Diagnostics in these efforts and who are bound to confidentiality. However, if you prefer not to accept cookies, you can set your browser to reject them or to alert you before one is placed.
In addition, there are portions of this Web site where we may need to collect personal information from you for a specific purpose, such as to provide you with certain information you request. The information collected from you may include your name, address, telephone, fax number, or e-mail address.
We use a third-party technology to place our advertisements on other Web sites. This technology will install a small “cookie” file on your computer when you view our ad. These cookies will not contain any information that personally identifies you (such as your name or e-mail address) but they will contain a randomly generated number that is unique to your browser and can be recognized by a “Web beacon” (transparent GIF file) on our site if you click through to our site from one of our ads. This allows us to keep track of how many unique visitors we have to our site and from what ads they entered, so that we can measure the effectiveness of our ads and ad placements. The privacy policies of the Web sites on which we advertise, and through which the cookies are installed should inform you about the cookie, and you may of course set your browser to reject cookies. To learn more about the third-party ad-serving technology that we use, cookies, and how to “opt-out,” please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Web site is not intended for persons under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly solicit or collect personal information from or about children, and we do not knowingly market our products or services to children.
Use of Collected Information

Domain name information that we collect is not used to personally identify you and instead is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, etc. We use this information to measure the use of our site and to improve the content of our site.
When other information is collected from you, such as your name and e-mail address, we generally let you know at the time of collection how we will use the personal information. Usually, we use the personal information you provide only to respond to your inquiry or to process your request (such as to receive information about our services). This information may be shared with other Blueprint Diagnostics businesses, but only if necessary to fulfill your request or for related purposes.
We may share the personal information you provide with other companies or affiliates. These companies are contractually bound to use personal information we share with them only to perform the services we have hired them to provide. We do not share, sell, or lease personal information about you to any outside third-parties for their marketing use. We will release information about you if you direct us to do so, if we are required by law to do so, or in other legally limited circumstances (for example, to protect your account from fraud).
Phone Call Information
If you call a telephone number listed on our Web site, we may collect Personal Information from you, including your name and telephone number through caller identification and reverse call technology. We also may record the telephone conversation. We record the telephone conversation to track the performance of our advertisements and for quality assurance purposes.

In addition to Blueprint Diagnostics, the only parties that have access to the recording are the telephone service provider and Blueprint Diagnostics contractors and affiliates who assist strictly in the efforts described in this paragraph, and who are bound by confidentiality.
By providing my contact information and telephone number, I expressly authorize Blueprint Diagnostics or their affiliates to contact me at the telephone number that I have provided and/or the email address that I have provided, even though I may have previously chosen to have the telephone number that I provided or the email address that I provided added to any Do-Not-Call List or anti-spam list including the lists maintained by Blueprint Diagnostics or their affiliates or any local, state, or federal government agency.
