We take the private nature of your personal information very seriously.
Some of The Services & social utilities permit sharing. When you share content, it may be made visible including (in some cases, and without limitation) location and time data. You should take care not disclose personal information in this way, and you must not use the Services to disclose personal information of others without their consent.
Depending on the way that you use the Services, it will often require that we gather personally-identifying information. The nature and amount of the information that we gather, depends on how you use the Services. For example, if you are enabled to you join The Services community and share content with that community, we may store your username, content, your email address, the content that you are sharing and other personal information. We only collect such information as is required or appropriate to fulfill your interaction with the Services. We won't disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
In addition to the information that you share directly with us, we may also collect non-personally-identifying information, such as (without limitation) the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We use this information to better understand the how people use the Services, and from time-to-time we may publish or release non-personally-identifying information in aggregate. Sometimes we will also collect potentially personally-identifying information such as Internet Protocol addresses. We don't use that information to identify users, however, and will not disclose such information, other than as described below.
We disclose personally identifying and potentially personally identifying information to those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that need to know the information in order to process it and/or assist in providing the Services, and provided that they have agreed not to disclose it other than subject to the same requirements of confidentiality. Those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside your country of residence. By using the Services, you consent to us transferring such information to them. Additionally, we may chose to buy or sell assets. This will typically involve transferring user information from us to another business. If our business or the majority of our assets are acquired, or we merge with another business, or in the unlikely event that we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be transferred to a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any purchaser may continue to use your personally and non-personally identifying information only as set forth in this policy. We may also disclose personally and non-personally identifying information if required by law. Otherwise, we will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
If you provided your email addresses, as a part of registration or otherwise, we may email you from time-to-time. We will always let you opt out at the time of such communication.
We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

We may work with other companies who place cookies or web beacons on our websites. These companies help operate our websites and provide you with additional products and services.
We may work with other companies who operate their own websites or mobile apps, to allow them to offer Walgreens customers the ability to connect to Walgreens services. These services give you more options for ways to use Walgreens services from websites or apps that are not owned or operated by Walgreens.
It is our intent not to sell to persons under the age of 18 and it is our policy not to do so. We sell children's products for purchase by adults.

Walgreens is committed to securing your personal information. We use technology that is designed for use with secure web servers. Prescription drug information resides in a database behind a firewall where it cannot be accessed without proper authorization. Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") technology encrypts your personal information as well as your prescription health history as it is transmitted over the Internet. You maintain the security of your medical information by keeping your user name, password and other personal information confidential. Walgreens customer service representatives will never request your password.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
We recommend that you take the following precautions to safeguard your data:
Use a complex password with unique numbers, letters and special characters, and do not disclose your Walgreens password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password.
Keep your computer software up to date with the latest browser and anti-virus security software.
Be aware of increasingly common email scams that may use your email address to contact you and ask for personal or sensitive information. Always be cautious when opening links or attachments from unsolicited third parties. Also know that Walgreens will not send you emails asking for your credit card number, social security number or other personally identifiable information. So if ever asked for this information, you can be confident it is not from Walgreens.
