We have a corporate site where you can read more about our company, obtain investor information, and find out how to contact us at www.medispin.com.
Information We Collect from Unregistered Visitors
Visitors to each of our Web sites can access the Web site's home page and browse some areas of the site without disclosing any personally identifiable information. We do track information provided to us by your browser, including the Web site you came from (known as the "referring URL"), the type of browser you use, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you. On most of our Web sites, you must register with us to use the entire site.
Information We Collect When You Register
Some areas of our Web sites require registration. When you register, you are asked to provide us with identifying information, such as name, gender, contact information, and other personal information. On our registration screens, we clearly label which information is required for registration, and which information is optional and may be given at your discretion. You will also be given a choice about whether or not you want to receive newsletters and other information that we distribute from time to time.
Continuing Medical Education
Where MediSpin Inc. provides continuing medical education ("CME") or continuing education ("CE"), the content is managed by a provider that is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education ("ACCME") to provide CME for physicians. When you register for a CME CE activity through one of our Web sites, the accredited provider will collect certain personally identifiable information from you such as your name, e-mail address, and mailing address. If you are a nurse or a pharmacist and wish to receive CE credit, you are also required to provide the state in which you are licensed and your license number. In addition to personally identifiable information, the provider will collect aggregated non personally identifiable information about the activities undertaken by our users. We use the information that we collect through CME/CE activities in several ways:
Your Web browser can be set to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies, reject cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is sent to you. If your browser is set to reject cookies, Web sites that are cookie-enabled will not recognize you when you return to the Web site, and some Web site functionality may be lost. The Help section of your browser will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies.
Although cookies do not normally contain personally identifiable information, if you are a registered user, we may elect to associate your registration information with cookies our Web site places on your computer's hard drive. Associating a cookie with your registration data allows us to offer increased personalization and functionality. For example, you can elect to have our Web sites "remember" your user name and password and bypass the sign-in process on each visit to the site. Without cookies, this functionality would not be possible.
We also may use Web beacons to collect nonpersonally identifiable information about your use of our Web sites and special promotions or newsletters. Web beacons are tiny graphic image files, embedded in a Web page in GIF, JPG or HTML format, that provide a presence on the Web page and send back to its home server (which can belong to the host site, a network advertiser or some other third party) information from a user's browser, such as the IP address, the URL of the page on which the beacon is located, the type of browser that is accessing the site, and the ID number of any cookies on the user's computer previously placed by that server. Web beacons can also be used to place a cookie on the user's browser. The information collected by Web beacons (i) allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our Web sites, (ii) how many people open our e-mails, and (iii) for what purposes these actions are being taken. Our Web beacons are not used to track your activity outside of our Web sites. We do not collect nonpersonally identifiable information from Web beacons to collect personally identifiable information without your permission, and do not use Web beacons to collect or store personal health information about you.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. Our Web sites are designed and intended for use by adults and are not intended for, nor designed to be used by, children under the age of 18. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we know is a child under the age of 18.
Uses We Make of Information
If we discover that a third party inadvertently disclosed personal information about any of our customers, we will take immediate action to prevent further occurrences.
