Privacy Policy

HEALTHCARE BULLETIN collects personally identifying information and data about individuals, their company, and the company's demographics ("personally identifying information and data") including (i) when you provide information to HEALTHCARE BULLETIN, such as when you register or sign up for any of our products such as publications, subscriptions, e-mails, contests, surveys, newsletters, memberships, RSS Feeds, web casts, podcasts, White Papers, online seminars, conferences and other communications with HEALTHCARE BULLETIN, (ii) when you register or sign up on the HEALTHCARE BULLETIN site or when you register for any other Healthcare Bulletin  products individually or through "auto register," your information will be known to HEALTHCARE BULLETIN and (iii) from time to time we may add other information that we collect from third party sources to enhance the information that you provided to HEALTHCARE BULLETIN.

Below is the current policy regarding the usage of personally identifying information and data collected by HEALTHCARE BULLETIN. We re-evaluate this policy on an ongoing basis based on feedback from readers and clients. HEALTHCARE BULLETIN reserves the right to change its privacy policy. However, if there are any changes to the use of personally identifying information and data that is different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify you by posting a notice on our website.

Information we Collect

This Web Site is not set up to automatically collect personally identifiable information from each visitor to our Web Site. It does recognize the home server of visitors, but not e-mail addresses. For example, we can tell which Internet Service Provider our visitors use, but not the names, addresses or other information about our visitors that would allow us to identify the particular visitors to our Web Site. This information is used only for internal purposes by our technical support staff.

This Web Site does track certain information about the visits to our Web Site. For example, we compile statistics that show the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Web Site and its individual pages. These aggregated statistics are used internally to improve our Web Site and for product development and marketing purposes generally. Those aggregated statistics may also be provided to advertisers and other third parties, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.

This site is compliant with the Data Protection Act in the UK and the Safe Harbor Privacy Agreement between the United States and the European Union.

Use of information for specific purposes

The personal information you provide to us when using our Web Site, such as your name, postal or e-mail address or telephone number will be kept confidential and used to support your customer relationship with HEALTHCARE BULLETIN, and to notify you of special offers, updated information and new products and services from HEALTHCARE BULLETIN, offers from third parties that we think may be of interest to you, or used by HEALTHCARE BULLETIN or third parties for the purpose of conducting market research or surveys on behalf of HEALTHCARE BULLETIN.

Agents or contractors of HEALTHCARE BULLETIN who are given access to your personal information will be required to keep the information confidential and not use it for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for HEALTHCARE BULLETIN. HEALTHCARE BULLETIN may enhance or merge your information collected at its Web Site with data from third parties for purposes of marketing products or services to you.

With respect to network advertising companies (companies that manage and provide advertising for numerous unrelated companies), to the extent that HEALTHCARE BULLETIN utilizes such advertising companies to provide advertisements on our Web Site, HEALTHCARE BULLETIN may provide them with your log-in name and any demographic information about you that we collect. Those advertising companies may combine that data with non-personally identifiable data collected by the advertising company from your computer solely for the purpose of delivering on our Web Site advertisements that are targeted to you.

Circumstances may arise where we are required to disclose your personal information to third parties for purposes other than to support your customer relationship with HEALTHCARE BULLETIN, such as in connection with a corporate divestiture or dissolution where we sell all or a portion of our business or assets (including our associated customer lists containing your personal information), or if disclosure is required by law or is pertinent to judicial or governmental investigations or proceedings.
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.

Submission of Articles, Images and Audio/Video

Please ensure you have permission from the copyright owner before uploading any articles, images or audio/video.  If uploading pictures or videos of patients please ensure you have their permission to do so.

HEALTHCARE BULLETIN accepts no responsibility or liability for any damage or injury to persons or property arising out of the use of any materials, instructions, methods or ideas contained within this website. HEALTHCARE BULLETIN expressly disclaims any implied warranties or merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.

Please be aware that HEALTHCARE BULLETIN is not responsible for the privacy practices or policies of such third party web sites and this Notice does not apply to those web sites.

It does not apply to information collected by HEALTHCARE BULLETIN in any other way, including offline.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change our privacy policy from time to time. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect from them, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose this information to third parties.

If at any point we decide that we wish to use personally identifiable information collected from our users in a manner that differs from that stated at the time this information was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice whether or not to consent to our using their personal information in accordance with our updated privacy policy.
