How We Respond to “Do Not Track” Signals

Some web browsers have a 'Do Not Track' feature. This feature allows you to tell websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked over time and across websites. These features are not yet uniform across browsers and not broadly supported. This site or application is not currently set up to respond to those signals.

  • Reporting or data analytics services
  • Error detection and debugging
  • Customer and troubleshooting support

  • Data migration and/or installation services
  • Marketing notices, newsletter, or communications via email

How We Share Personal Information Collected

We do not sell your personal information to third parties.

  • Meet applicable laws, regulations, legal processes, or enforceable governmental requests
  • Enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations
  • Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues
  • Protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of our users, McKesson, or the public as required or permitted by law
