Last revised: 3/12/17

 

Thank you for visiting AmericasHealthcareLeaders.com. We are committed to protecting your privacy and security, and here describe how we use personal information that is collected on this website. Please read this Privacy Policy in full before using this website or submitting any personal information. This Privacy Policy is subject to change by America’s Healthcare Leaders at any time and at our discretion without notice by updating this posting. By using this website, you accept the privacy practices contained in this Privacy Policy. You are encouraged to review the Privacy Policy whenever you visit this website to make sure you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.

Please note: We take children’s privacy very seriously, thus our Terms of Use only allow this website to be accessed by persons eighteen years of age or above.

This website is controlled from offices in the United States of America. We do not represent that content and materials on this website are appropriate or available for use in locations outside of the USA. Persons who choose to access this website from other locations do so on their own initiative, and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws.

 

THIRD PARTY WEBSITES

This website occasionally contains links to other websites that may offer information, resources, products, or services that our members might find useful. These third party websites may request information from you. In such instances, the collection and use of your personal information will be governed by the privacy policy applicable to that website. We do not control and are not responsible for the privacy policies, contents, or links that appear on these third party websites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party websites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.

 

HOW AND WHY WE COLLECT INFORMATION

We may collect your information in order to facilitate your participation as a visitor to this website. If you subscribe to our email newsletter, you will receive email updates whenever new content is published to the blog. If you do not wish to receive these email updates, you may opt out at any time. We include an unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email we send. If you have any trouble opting out, please contact us here, and we will manually remove you from our email list(s).

In addition to email subscriptions, we may occasionally offer opportunities to engage in additional activities or purchase optional products or services. In those cases, we may request additional personal information in order to facilitate the delivery or support of that program, product, or service.

In all cases, we will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. Except as otherwise provided in this policy, we will never intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user to any third party without having received your permission.

If you supply us with your contact information you may receive periodic emails, mailings or calls from us with information on new products and services, important issues, or upcoming events. If you wish to be removed from any postal, email, phone, or other lists, please let us know by contacting us here. Please provide us with your exact name, email address, mailing address, and phone. We will be sure your name is removed from the appropriate lists immediately.

When you use this website, we or our authorized technology services provider may also collect certain technical and routing information from you to facilitate your use of this website and its services. We use this information to administer the website and to understand and measure traffic patterns on the website so that we know which areas of the website are frequently visited by our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve the website. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying you or any user individually. We may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.

This data is often tracked by us or our technology services provider by using “cookies” during your visit. A cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card and enables us to record your passwords, purchases, and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. (For some web pages that require an authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies will probably not be able to access those pages.)

All information collected from you is stored in a technically and physically secure environment. We use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, and we do everything we can to protect user information offline. Unfortunately, no transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we take reasonable measures to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of the information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

 

EXCEPTIONS TO PRIVACY POLICY

While we are committed to keeping your information secure and private, we have the following exceptions to our privacy policy: We will release specific information about you or your account to comply with any valid legal inquiry or process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of the security of the website, or a physical or property threat to you or others. We may also transfer user information, including personally identifiable information, in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of related assets, or corporate division or other fundamental corporate change.

Further, the information you enter when making a purchase or an online donation will be shared with payment processors, financial gateways, and your credit card company to authorize credit card payments. Such information may also be shared with necessary third parties solely for the purpose of carrying out the transactions. Please note that if you give out personal information online through a discussion board or posting site, that information can be collected and used by third parties. Although we strive to protect our users’ privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of information you post publicly on the website. You disclose such information at your own risk.
