Effective: June 18, 2014

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which Acumed LLC (“Acumed”) collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (“you” or variations thereof) of its www.acumed.net website and any derivative or affiliated websites on which this Privacy Policy is posted (collectively, the “Website”). Acumed reserves the right, at its discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions of this Privacy Policy at any time by posting such changes to this page. You understand that you have the affirmative obligation to check this Privacy Policy periodically for changes, and you hereby agree to periodically review this Privacy Policy for such changes. The continued use of the Website following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy constitutes an acceptance of those changes.

Privacy

Acumed believes that you should know how it utilizes the information collected from you online. The Website is not directed at children under 13 years of age, and Acumed does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age online. Please note that the Website may contain links to other websites. These linked sites may not be operated or controlled by Acumed. Acumed is not responsible for the privacy practices of these or any other websites, and you access these websites entirely at your own risk. Acumed recommends that you review the privacy practices of any other websites that you choose to visit.

Acumed is based, and this website is hosted, in the United States of America. If you are from the European Union or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law and you are registering an account on the Website, visiting the Website, purchasing products or services from Acumed or the Website, or otherwise using the Website, please note that any personally identifiable information that you provide to Acumed will be transferred to the United States. Any such personally identifiable information provided will be processed and stored in the United States by Acumed or a service provider acting on its behalf. By providing your personally identifiable information, you hereby specifically and expressly consent to such transfer and processing and the uses and disclosures set forth herein.

The Information Acumed Collects

Acumed may collect personally identifiable information from you in a variety of ways. Personally identifiable information may include, without limitation, (i) contact data (such as your name, mailing and e-mail addresses); (ii) demographic data; (iii) financial information collected to process purchases made from Acumed via the Website or otherwise (such as credit card, debit card or other payment information); (iv) other information requested during the account registration process; and (v) information requested when you sign up for specific features (such as newsletter subscriptions, tips/pointers, or resume submission). If you communicate with Acumed by email or otherwise, post messages to any forums, complete online forms, surveys or entries or otherwise interact with or use the features on the Website, any information provided in such communications may be collected by Acumed. Acumed may also collect information about how you use the Website, for example, by tracking the number of unique views received by the pages of the Website, or the domains and IP addresses from which you originate. While not all of the information that Acumed collects from you is personally identifiable, it may be associated with personally identifiable information that you provide Acumed through the Website or otherwise.

Acumed may use “cookies” or “web beacons” to track how you use the Website. A cookie is a piece of software that a web server can store on your PC or device and use to identify you should you visit the Website again. You may adjust your web browser software if you do not wish to accept cookies, or clear previously placed cookies off of your device; however, doing so may interfere with certain aspects or features of the Website. Acumed does not recognize “do not track” signals. Acumed may use third party advertising networks to serve advertisements on the Website. The cookies received with banner advertisements served by these networks are used to collect and build anonymous behavioral profiles by these companies to deliver targeted advertisements and tracking referrals, and Acumed generally does not have access to this information.

Acumed may also use information collected through the Website for research regarding the effectiveness of the Website and the business planning, marketing, advertising and sales efforts of Acumed, its trusted affiliates, independent contractors and business partners.

Disclosure of Information

Acumed may disclose personally identifiable information collected from you to its parent, subsidiary and other related companies, trusted affiliates, independent contractors and business partners who will use the information for the purposes outlined above, as necessary to provide the services offered by Acumed and to provide the Website itself, and for the specific purposes for which the information was collected. Acumed may disclose personally identifiable information at the request of law enforcement or governmental agencies or in response to subpoenas, court orders or other legal process, to establish, protect or exercise Acumed’s legal or other rights or to defend against a legal claim or as otherwise required or allowed by law.

Acumed may also disclose aggregate, anonymous data based on information collected from users to investors and potential partners. Finally, Acumed may disclose or transfer personally identifiable information collected from users in connection with or in contemplation of a sale of its assets or business or a merger, consolidation or other reorganization of its business.

Security of Information

Information about users that is maintained on Acumed’s systems is protected using reasonable security measures. However, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and Acumed cannot guarantee that the information submitted to, maintained on or transmitted from its systems will be completely secure. Acumed is not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures relating to the Website by any users or third parties.
