Share this article to


Entering into our site, all users/viewers/readers acknowledge to obey our “Terms & Policies”. Failure to do so, we request strictly not to visit our site. Continuing to this site, you won’t be considered as our user and so you can’t claim/send/ask for any type of security/complaint/services from us. Not following our “Terms & Policies” completely or properly may lead to suspension of the account or a ban from accessing the site. 

Any user whether registered or not using our site or its services on behalf of a company, organization, or any other entity containing more than 1 member also agrees/authorizes/warrants to obey our “Terms & Policies”. That user will be responsible for any kind of action on our site.

Many users complain why every entity makes their policies (either privacy policies or related policies) too complicated, lengthy, and sometimes not understandable. 

Well, the difficulty of anything depends on the understanding of a person.

Okay, but why these kinds of policies are made, and why it’s lengthy?

These are made to inform users about the proper, legal, and disciplined way of our functioning and to ensure transparency between you and us. That’s why mostly it becomes lengthy.

Now you may ask why disciplined way?

The word “Discipline” isn’t a thing you imagine mostly. Discipline is not about rules, regulations, or punishment. Even it doesn’t mean agreement, obedience, or forcing something continuously to do the same thing again and again. Simply, it means studying, learning, training, and applying a series of standards to get the optimum result. Without discipline, no one can exist, operate or survive. Hopefully, now you understand why we made this 😀

In short, the “Terms and Policies” informs you about our collection, use, disclosure, and preferences of your personal data. By accepting our policies, all users (whether registered or not) who use our site or its services give their consent to receive services from us in the form of digital content like texts, images, pdfs, courses, emails, etc. and hereby always agree to abide by the “Terms and Policies” set forth below.

Privacy Policy

Disclaimer! Based on Personal Experience
If you see the label “Disclaimer! Based on Personal Experience” it means the article or the content is primarily based upon the experience of the writer and the creator of Dear Health: Hridoy Kundu. Any suggestion/s on that content are mostly derived from him or his elders or reading ancient methodology books. This is why it may or may not be based on scientific evidence or prescribed by a doctor/health professional. We don’t take any responsibility for any consequences that happen by trying those suggestions, tips, or such things. Only you will be responsible for that.

Medical Disclosure
On our website, all types of health-related content, advice/instructions, services, products, or any such related things aren’t made as a substitute for any authorized/qualified doctors’ or healthcare professionals’ work. This site is intended for general and very basic health information purposes only. In any way or by any means, our site shouldn’t be used as professional medical advice, examination, diagnosis, or treatment. If you have any kind of medical condition or emergency, seek help from the nearest doctor. Using or knowing any info/services from our site, you shouldn’t stop, start, or modify any of your treatment/s for a medical condition suggested/advised by medical professionals or doctors. Without their supervision, our services or info shouldn’t be used to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any type of disease or medical condition. 

We don’t resemble any tests, products, procedures, or opinions prescribed by doctors. Our services/suggestions aren’t regulated by any Food or Health safety authority. The information posted on our site is primarily written by an ordinary person like you who may differ from an ordinary person only by a health enthusiast mentality.

We only give health info or solutions when it’s a universal or very basic health habit problem and doesn’t require any serious health advisory. Still, that too causes many people allergic or other health problems. That’s why we always suggest professional physicians for any health advisory of any treatments. The reason? Different ages, genders, and health conditions people require different types of health treatment. So in one universal way (which most of our website posts address), treating all types of people isn’t possible.

Commission Disclosure 
When you click/see any of our promotional content (including but not limited to) advertisements, sponsors, or affiliate links we earn a certain amount of commissions shared between us and the respective advertise parties. We also earn money when you buy any courses, PDFs, or any such digitally created things from us. To make transparency with our users, we declare most of our promotional content as a tag “AD”, “ADVERTISEMENT”, “SPONSORED”, or  “PROMOTED”. This doesn’t include affiliate links due to having little to no space for showing tags and the complexity of adding different codes. 

Bias Disclosure
We want to be as neutral as possible. But sometimes knowingly or unknowingly we (primarily Hridoy Kundu as a writer and occasionally other writers) may give biased opinions, reviews, or preferences. That’s why we always advise our users/readers/viewers or anyone else using our site to consider their discretion, intelligence, ability to fact-check/cross-check, and common sense before coming into any conclusion.

User Data

i) Why do we retain your data?
To be frank, when you’re online and using any other services your data/privacy is no longer yours. Although you can do some steps to be less trackable but unfortunately not completely [Cite 1, 2]. Yes! These two lines also apply to the author who was writing this. Then you might ask if the author already knows this why doesn’t he just stop tracking us? Well, the simple answer is – we won’t survive. Unless we get any extraordinary solution to stop tracking our users, we have to do and have to let others do the same with us infinitely. In the offline world, even if you talk or connect to someone, you also infringe on your data. On offline you share your data with others in the form of your behavior, emotions, or reactions to something. On online the same is done in digital mode or by a piece of code. Giving you no more surprise about the fact that most institute, company, or organization collects your data. Even if you don’t give permission to them. 

The only difference between them is Goodwill and Badwill. Goodwill only collects your data either that’s not linked to you or you have already given exclusive permission to use them. On the other hand, Badwill just doesn’t even care whether you give permission to them or not about collecting your data. To survive, as others do, the same goes for us. We also collect your data and retain it – to give you a better and smoother user experience by personalizing things; to show relevant information, products, and services you like or want to buy; honestly and obviously to make more profits. Now you decide the pattern of collecting your data that we follow whether the good one or the bad one.

ii) When do we retain your data?
We retain your data (e.g. your name, email address, date of birth, gender, etc.) only with your consent. Every time you left a comment, register/sign-up/login, subscribe to the newsletter, use the social media share options or plugin to share our articles, or simply use/buy our services, your data is stored at our site. For social media sharing, the data of your social media public profile is stored. This data helps us to create user-specific profiles in our website database. You always can withdraw or delete this at any time from your profile page or by sending us an email.

iii) How long do we retain your data?
Except for certain types of data like cookies that may disappear automatically from the server in hours, days, weeks, or max to max in a year. Most of your data e.g. your name, email address, comments, transaction history, etc enrolled by yourself are retained on our site forever until you ask us to delete those.

Note that sending us an email to delete those data linked to you, will be deleted on the surface level of our site. Mean, any user visiting the site or any editors, writers, or any person not at the admin level won’t see any info about you. But the admins of the site and legal constitutions i.e. Police and Court will always have a copy of your whole data given to the site. 

Be rest assured, your info will be shared with those authorized entities only when you did a serious crime. This is one of the extremes of extreme and rarest of the rarest case.

iv) To whom do we share your data?
We don’t sell, trade, or transfer your data to anyone. However, this does not include our trusted third parties who promised us to keep that info confidential. For example, Google Analytics, Bing webmaster tools, Microsoft Clarity, etc. are some of those we trust. They help us in operating, conducting, servicing, and understanding the behavior of our consumers and improvements in their experience and engagement. Moreover, those tools are used to see how users are interacting with our site, what’s their retention on a particular webpage, how much they are scrolling, where are their clicking points (hotspot), what are their age, country, gender, and so on. We also use trusted and recognized email marketing services such as Convert Studio, Get Bounce, to send emails, to track whether the user opened our email or not, if opened do they click the links mentioned in the email? if clicked, do they purchase anything or not?

We may also disclose your info to law and enforcement agencies like courts, police, national investigation agencies when there are safety concerns for us and other users. Unfortunately, our sharing of your data with those trusted parties will continue until we find an awesome solution that doesn’t track anything without affecting the user experience and our revenue.

v) How do we protect your data?
We use – i) https to ensure encryption of the information that is exchanged between our server and your browser ii) Sucuri/Wordfence security to stop spam and data breaches iii) malware/virus scanning on our site both from the backend and frontend. It is done due to check, prevent and protect our users from any kind of cyber threats. iv) hash format in our database (instead of plain text) to store your data in encrypted form v) and so on.

Cookies are small files of information sent from our site to your browser and it’s stored on your device for a certain period of time. The benefit of it is it fasters the site experience by remembering your certain choices made on a particular site.

By using our website, when you leave “user behavior” through comments or usage, we store this type of information in the form of cookies. This is done for your convenience so that every time you use our site you don’t have to put/fill the same info again and again. There are different cookies for different purposes. The duration of these cookies lasts for some hours, days, or weeks to max a year. You can delete these cookies by logging out from the site or, simply, deleting them from your browser settings: search bar<site address<padlock icon<cookies<delete/remove. Remember! On any site, clearing all cookies will delete your choices put on any site and always slower your browsing experience than before. You can experiment with this if you don’t believe it.
