Cookies and IP Addresses
“Cookies” are small pieces of information stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. They provide greater security for Websites that provide personalized information. Cookies are commonly used by websites to provide identification. The cookie you accept is uniquely yours and can be read only by the server that gave it to you. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them, which may impact how the website functions when you use it.
A unique number called an IP address identifies every computer on the Internet. Each time you connect to the Internet your machine is assigned an IP address. An IP address is a number that identifies each sender or receiver of information that is sent in packets across the Internet. You may also turn off cookies in your browser.

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) provides California residents (consumers) with specific rights regarding their Personal Information (as defined in the CCPA). This disclosure sets forth our privacy practices as required by the CCPA in those limited circumstances where we collect personal information that is not governed by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”). This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights as follows:
Only you, or a person whom you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a request related to your personal information. In the case of access and deletion, your request must be verifiable before we can fulfill such request. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority.
We do not and will not discriminate against you in the event you decide to exercise your rights under the CCPA. For example, we will not withhold products or services from you, prohibit you from using the website, charge you a higher price or provide you a lower level of service if you make a request related to your personal information.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
If you are a California resident and would like to exercise your rights under CCPA, please contact us via email at email@example.com with the subject line, “CCPA Policy” and/or by postal mail to Avalere Health, 1201 New York Avenue NW, Suite 1000, Washington, DC 20005.
