These tools may be used to assist in managing the content on the PWNHealth Website by informing us (without using cookies) of the content that you use and view on the PWNHealth Website. These tools collect various information about your device, such as your screen resolution, browser type, and operating system. Many devices have unique, or near unique, device profiles such that collecting this information allows us and our service providers to determine with a reasonable level of statistical accuracy information on your engagement with the PWNHealth, as well as your device when you interact with the PWNHealth Website. We do not tie this statistical information to your personal information.
    5. Surveys. We may also ask that you participate in anonymous surveys, which allow us to collect additional data to help us improve the PWNHealth Website and PWNHealth Services. Participation in such surveys is voluntary and is not connected to any of your personal information.

In general, we will retain all information collected through the PWNHealth Website and PWNHealth Services for, at a minimum, the length of time permitted by applicable law. We maintain backup files as a protection against natural disasters, equipment failures, or other disruptions. Backup files protect you and us because they lower the risk of losing valuable data. Backup files may contain records with your personal information. Removing a record from our active files and databases does not remove that record from any backup systems. Such backup data will eventually be passively deleted as backup records are erased through the normal recycling of backup files. In the meantime, as long as backup records exist, they receive the same security protections as our other records.

    If you request that Ancestry delete your information held by Ancestry, such request will not result in the deletion of information held by PWNHealth. Such information will be retained by PWNHealth in accordance with applicable law and this Privacy Policy.

This encryption is to help protect your information while it is being transmitted. Once we receive your information we strive to maintain the physical and electronic security of your personal information using commercially reasonable efforts.


    We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information form accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. As you access your personal information in connection with the PWNHealth Services by logging on to your Ancestry account, you are responsible for keeping your password confidential.
