We do not direct the Services towards children under the age of 13, nor do we knowingly collect any information from children we know to be under the age of 13.

Affirmative Consent to Communications.
If you download and install our App from an App Store, you consent to receive in-App messages from us, as well as email messages, related to the App Services, directed to the email account of record for that App Store. If you subscribe to or request a Service that we deliver by email or text, you consent to receive communications related to that Service at that email or text address.
We may also send you promotional communications that we deem relevant to the Service you requested (As one example of this, if you request information about a particular drug therapy and two months later the Food and Drug Administration releases some updated guidance about that drug or approves its generic version for sale, we may—but have no obligation to—email you about that guidance or approval). YOU CAN OPT OUT OF THESE PROMOTIONAL COMMUNICATIONS BY FOLLOWING THE “UNSUBSCRIBE” DIRECTIONS IN THE FOOTER OF EACH SUCH EMAIL OR TEXT
