This site is not intended for children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly seek site visitors in this age group. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose to Web sites.
Active Information Collection
Like many Web sites, this site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail, feedback forms, and/or chat rooms. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and so on).
Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such as members only live or on-demand videos and subscribing to channel RSS feeds) or to participate in a particular activity (such as providing feedback or CME testing). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.
When you join a BroadcastMed site you will be given the option of receiving recurring informational/promotional newsletters via email from BroadcastMed and/or directly from the content providers of the content you view. These emails will not contain Personal Health Information. At the time you sign up for our email newsletters or any time thereafter, you can choose to Opt-In to receive additional promotional emails from BroadcastMed.
In order to subscribe to such newsletters via email, we need your contact information, such as name and email address. BroadcastMed may send you informational announcements of future scheduled live or on-demand video. You can unsubscribe from the newsletters by simply clicking on the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of any email newsletter.
Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through a Web site, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet tags, and navigational data collection (e.g., the page from which you accessed our site).
This site may collect Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP Address is a unique number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet. We use this IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information (e.g., how many site visitors have we had during a Webcast), determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and administer and improve the site.
A "cookie" is a small text file that a Web server sends to your PC, which helps the site retain information about you and your preferences, so that you do not have to manually reenter these when you return to our site (e.g., you can avoid having to reenter your email address each time you want to view a Webcast).
"Session" cookies are temporary cookies that are erased once you exit your Web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session cookies are used to lend continuity to navigating our site and to collect aggregate statistical information. This site uses session cookies.
"Navigational data" ("log files," "server logs," and "clickstream" data) are used for system management, to improve the content of the site, for market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors. This site uses navigational data.
As a service, BroadcastMed may feature message boards, chat rooms and other public forums offering online discussions moderated by medical or healthcare experts.
Any information shared (including Personally Identifiable and Personal Health Information) that you reveal in a chat room or message board, is by design open to the public and is not a private, secure service. You should think carefully before disclosing any Personally Identifiable or Personal Health Information in any public forum. What you have written may be seen, disclosed to or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways we are unable to control or predict, including to contact you for unauthorized purposes.
Information Collected by Third Parties Not Acting on BroadcastMed’s Behalf
Use and Disclosure of Information
Regardless of how information about you is gathered or used on this site, we have made every effort to conform with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which, among other things, protects the privacy of a person’s health history and current medical condition.
If you provide personally identifiable information to this site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We will take reasonable measures to prevent personally identifiable information from being combined with passively collected information, unless you consent otherwise.
iii. where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations.
In addition, we will make full use of all information acquired through this site that is not in personally identifiable form.
Access and Correction
To keep your personally identifiable information accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as specified below. We will take reasonable steps to update, remove or correct personally identifiable information in our possession that you have previously submitted via this site.
We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our site and to protect such information once it is in our possession from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on this site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.
