Privacy Policy

Revised June 1, 2016

 

I.  Our Commitment to Privacy

This Privacy Policy applies to all of the Websites owned by Physician Resources, LLC (“PHYSICIAN RESOURCES”) unless expressly noted otherwise. PHYSICIAN RESOURCES has created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to the privacy of our Website users.  PHYSICIAN RESOURCES is committed to respecting your privacy and recognizing your need for appropriate protection and management of personally identifiable information you share with us (the phrases “personally identifiable information” and “personal information” mean any information by which you, individually, can be identified, such as your name, address, telephone number, etc.).  The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you about how we use such information, and the choices you have regarding your use of, and your ability to review and correct, your information.  Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this site.

 

II.  Your Consent

By using this site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy.  Whenever you submit information to this site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

 

III.  A Special Notice About Children

This site is not intended for children under the age of 18.  We will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information via this site from visitors in this age group.  We encourage parents to talk to their children about use of the internet. 

 

IV.  Passive Information Collection and Use of Personal Information

As you navigate through this site, certain anonymous information can be passively collected (that is gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies such as cookies, Internet tags or web beacons, and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, clickstream).  Your Internet browser automatically transmits to this site some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the Website you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using.  This site may also collect anonymous information from your computer through cookies and Internet tags or web beacons.  You may set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent or to refuse cookies altogether, but certain features of this site might not work without cookies.

This site may use and combine such passively collected anonymous information to provide better service to site visitors, customize the site based on your preferences, compile and analyze statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve the site for your use.

In certain sections of the Website you may be asked to provide us with personal information, including your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, a password, and other identifying information.  If you choose to submit such information, we may also collect additional personal information up to and including your billing address, shipping address, and a credit card number and expiration date in order to process your submission properly; and, such information will be shared with applicable third parties so they may process the information as well.  In such case, each party operates independently of PHYSICIAN RESOURCES and maintains its own privacy and security policy.  PHYSICIAN RESOURCES bears no responsibility regarding the activities of any such third parties to whom PHYSICIAN RESOURCES provides information to process your request and you should contact those third parties directly regarding your preferences for the use of your personal information.

Your personal information enables us to provide you with the information you have requested, provide you with information regarding the status of your transactions, and to provide you with information regarding future opportunities that may suit your particular interests.  We also use your personal information to help identify you if you lose your password and to help you quickly find information on the Website.  If you believe that any of your personal information is incorrect or has been changed since your registration at the Website, please send an e-mail message to info@physicianresources.org explaining the correction or change and provide any relevant confirmation or reference number.

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, it is PHYSICIAN RESOURCES’ policy not to distribute to third parties any personally identifiable information about you without your consent (usually communicated through an “opt-out” notification or mechanism).  We may aggregate certain personally identifiable information – meaning that the information from many PHYSICIAN RESOURCES Website users is grouped together in a way that does not disclose the personal information of any particular user – without your consent. 

PHYSICIAN RESOURCES may release your personal information to third parties:  (a) performing functions on behalf of PHYSICIAN RESOURCES; (b) in order to comply with a valid legal requirement such as in compliance with any law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; or (c) in special cases when we believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding any illegal or unauthorized activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person or violations of our Terms of Use Policy.

PHYSICIAN RESOURCES may transfer the personal information collected under this Privacy Policy to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership such as a merger, acquisition or any form of sale.

 

V.  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.  PHYSICIAN RESOURCES contracts with a third party to maintain and host the Website.  Therefore, any information you submit, including personal information, will be placed and stored on a computer server maintained by this third party host.  The third party has implemented technology and security features and strict policy guidelines to safeguard the privacy of your personal information from unauthorized access or improper use.

Although PHYSICIAN RESOURCES uses commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard your information and protect it from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be fully secure in all instances and we cannot guarantee that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy.

If you choose to use this Website, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer and you are responsible for all activities that occur under your account and password.  Therefore, safeguard your password and use caution and discretion when posting information on public areas of the site.

To the extent that this Website contains links or references to other Websites, please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply.  We encourage you to read the Privacy Policy of every Website you visit.

 

VI.  Effective Date and Changes

PHYSICIAN RESOURCES reserves the right to modify or supplement this Privacy Policy at any time without any prior notice to you.  Please regularly review this Privacy Policy, and especially before you provide any personally identifiable information, to keep up to date with any changes that may affect your use of the Website.  Your continued use of the PHYSICIAN RESOURCES Website once the revised Privacy Policy has been posted on the site affirms your acceptance of such changes even if you haven’t reviewed them.

 

VII.  Questions, Comments, or to Opt Out
