Privacy Statement




Tuerff-Davis EnviroMedia is the advertising/public relations agency of
record for the Texas Department of State Health Services. Tuerff-Davis EnviroMedia
(EnviroMedia) has a policy to respect and protect the privacy of its users.
This privacy policy statement tells you how we collect information from
you and how we use it. Using the Internet should be a fun experience and
we want to help you make it so.

The information you provide to us will not be disclosed to third parties
without your consent. We may share aggregate information about our users
to others (for example, our website developer), however, to customize the
content on our site and to deliver a better experience for our users.

There are cases where EnviroMedia may request personal information such
as your name, e-mail address and birth date. For example, we request personal
information when you request information, brochures or information, or for
services that require registration (for example, entrance in a sweepstakes).
We need to collect this information for complying with your requests, fulfilling
prizes and for tracking/verifying compliance with EnviroMedia’s policies
as well as federal, state and local laws. We will not use any personal information
for any purpose except for its intended use, which shall be disclosed at
the time such information is requested.

In case you change your mind or some personal information changes (such
as your ZIP code), we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update
or remove the personal data you give us. You can do this by contacting our
Webmaster through the website.

We may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason
to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact
or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference
with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, or
anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We may also disclose
user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

To keep you in control of your personal information and the communications
directed to you, you may opt out of receiving communications from this website
about new features or services or updates to the website. If you object
to such use for any reason, you may ask to be removed from our lists by
replying to the address contained in each communication.

EnviroMedia encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with
their children and to participate in the activities offered on the sites.

EnviroMedia does not provide any personally identifying information, regardless
of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever from our guests,
including minors. When a minor registers for a sweepstakes or contest, we
will only use any personally identifiable information for internal purposes
and for purposes of awarding the prize. Although minors may be allowed to
participate in some contests and promotions, if such a guest wins, prizes
will be awarded to the entrant’s parent or legal guardian. Publication
of names, ages or images for promotion winners who are minors requires parental
or guardian consent.

We encourage our guests who are under 18 years of age to seek parental
consent before providing any personal identifying information on our site.

An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer
whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers — the big computers that "serve
up" Web pages — automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
We may collect IP addresses for the purpose of system administration, to
review aggregate information and to audit the use of our site. When guests
request pages from this website, our servers may log the guests’ IP addresses.
We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable,
which means that a user’s session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous
to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel
it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service
or to protect our service, site, customers or others.

What are cookies? Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers
to an individual’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make
Web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you’re at our
site. The use of cookies is an industry standard — you’ll find them at
most major websites. By showing how and when guests use a site, cookies
may help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements
and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors
and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies.
We may use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored
to our users needs.

We have two primary uses for cookies. First, we may use them to specify
unique preferences. This way you don’t have to tell us over and over again
about the kinds of information you want to see. Secondly, we use cookies
to track user trends and patterns. This helps us better understand and improve
areas of the website that our users find valuable. While both of these activities
depend on the use of a cookie, visitors to this website always have the
option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences. Most browsers
are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse
all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent.

Users should be aware that when they are on this website, they could be
directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to
other sites from our pages that take you outside our service. These other
sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal

Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online,
that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. While
we strive to protect users’ personal information and privacy, we cannot
guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do
so at your own risk. Our policy does not extend to anything that is inherent
in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond our control, and
is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental

The importance of security for all personally identifiable information
associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great
care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to
our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be
guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, EnviroMedia cannot ensure or
warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online
products or services, and you do so at your own risk.

Remember to sign out and close your browser window when you have finished
visiting our site. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal
information and correspondence if your computer is accessible to others
or if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in
a public place like a library or Internet café.
