The information we collect about you
User Information is information that is provided by you to us when you register online for any Platform, including your:
- Username and password
- First name
- Position title (professional)
- Email address
Additional information including, but not limited to, your city, institution and qualifications may be collected by us if you elect to enter that information during the registration process or subsequently by editing your Account Settings Page. Information regarding how you interact with the Platforms may also be collected by us and linked to your account, including, but not limited to, the number of cases uploaded, edited or otherwise contributed by you.
Usage Data includes general information about how you interact with the web pages and web sites on the Platforms. This is collected using cookies (or similar technologies) placed by us and others (see ‘Who the information is shared with’ below). Cookies are small pieces of data sent from a website and stored in a web browser, and which may assign an anonymous identifier to the user. Usage Data includes:
- pages you visited on our web sites
- how you came to the website
- which particular buttons or links on the site you clicked
- whether you have been to the site before
The way we use information
Who we share the information with
We are not currently sharing user information with any marketing entity or other outside affiliate.
Information Transferred or Stored Overseas
We operate out of USA and are not currently storing Usage Information and Usage Data on any international servers
Anonymity of cases / images
- date of birth
- address, including full or partial postal code
- telephone or fax numbers or contact information
- e-mail addresses
- unique identifying numbers (e.g. UR, MRN, HID etc..)
- vehicle identifiers
- medical device identifiers (e.g serial numbers)
- web or internet protocol addresses containing any link to the patient
- biometric data
- facial photograph or comparable image
- names of relatives
- date of study
Additionally, if a case is, for one reason or another, unique in such a way that could lead to the identification of an individual from the images alone, then it should not be uploaded. This means that a case which has, for example, been featured in the media or shows particularly rare symptoms is usually inappropriate for upload. Similarly, the textual information accompanying the text should also be devoid of identifying information, and devoid of other unnecessary information which could aid in the identification of a patient.
Our commitment to data security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
