What information does Medical Media Systems collect?
At times, we may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information. Generally this information is requested when you register for a software subscription or online service or when you provide information in connection with an online transaction.
• When you order, we ask you for your name, email address, billing address, telephone number, and credit card information so that we can complete the transaction. We also ask for demographic and contact information including your name, email address, date of birth, profession, specialty, and educational level so that we can provide you with more customized service and information as well as to insure that only health professionals have access to our website.
• There may be other instances when we ask for information from you. For example, when you participate in a survey or product test or when you enter a contest or other promotional event, we may ask for additional personal information. The information collected, its purpose, and how/by whom it will be used will be explained to you at the point of collection if jointly offered with a partner organization or within the accompanying terms for other situations.
Additionally, we may supplement your data with information from third parties, including the AMA. For example, we might compare the name, school and professional information you provide with relevant practitioner databases to help verify the accuracy of our subscriber database.
How does Medical Media Systems use the information we collect?
One of Medical Media Systems' strengths is its community of subscribers. At Medical Media Systems, we strive to extend beyond our applications and provide other services that bring additional value to our subscribers. To do this, we need to understand who our subscribers are and collect information that will assist us in tailoring subscribers' experiences.
Your satisfaction with our services is essential to our success, and so we use the information we collect carefully. Medical Media Systems uses your personal information to operate our website and/or affect your transactions, and to assist with the continual improvement of the content and function of Medical Media Systems products. For this reason, we monitor customer traffic patterns and usage to help us improve the design, layout, and usability of our products and to provide content and product features of interest to you.
We use contact and demographic information to contact you regarding relevant Medical Media Systems services and products. For instance, we may contact you (for example, by email) to let you know that we have released a new product or service or a new version of an existing product. We may also use contact and demographic information to send you materials from some of our partners or to invite you to provide us with feedback or to participate in a survey being conducted by one of our partners. If you do not wish to receive these kinds of emails, you may choose to opt out by updating your profile.
Does Medical Media Systems track your use of its products?
Medical Media Systems does collect usage information about our products, such as which streaming video segments are viewed. We use this data to improve our subscribers’ experience and to prioritize new product development. Most importantly, we do not sell personally identifiable information about your use of Medical Media Systems products to anyone.
How does Medical Media Systems protect your information?
Medical Media Systems safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. These procedures include limiting access to the information in various ways depending on the nature of the information as well as training our employees on the proper handling of subscriber information. While we believe we have taken appropriate measures to protect the information that we have received, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
When you place orders or access your account information, we offer the use of a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, we take extra steps to protect this data from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Will Medical Media Systems share the information it collects with others?
As a rule, Medical Media Systems does not share or sell its subscribers' email addresses, or disclose the identity of its subscribers; or, most importantly, disclose information on how subscribers are using Medical Media Systems products, except in aggregate or non-personally identifiable form. Such tracking data is used internally by Medical Media Systems primarily for developing and enhancing products and improving technical usability. For more information, refer to "How does Medical Media Systems use the information we collect?"
However, we obviously must disclose certain information to credit card processors when you make an online purchase. The service providers we use are not permitted to use your information for any secondary purposes. Medical Media Systems may also disclose personal information as allowed or required by applicable law, including making disclosures that are necessary or advisable to: (a) protect the rights, safety, or property of subscribers of our website and products, the public, or Medical Media Systems, and (b) conform to legal or regulatory requirements. No other disclosures of personally identifiable information will be made without your prior consent.
Medical Media Systems may provide aggregate or non-personally identifiable statistics about our customers, sales, product usage or traffic patterns, and related website information, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information. For example, we may share aggregated demographic data about our subscribers, such as the number of Medical Media Systems subscribers in Illinois or the observation that students have more need for heart sound interpretation tutorials than attending physicians.
An exception to this is regarding reported usage to the educational institution where the User is enrolled, per agreement to our Terms.
Please be assured, however, that we do not sell your name, email address, contact information, software usage information, or any other other personally identifiable information to outside or third parties.
Choice and Access to Your Information
Medical Media Systems tries to provide you with relevant information on a variety of topics through our newsletters and other email communications.
