COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION
An example of the type of information collected includes personal identifiers, such as an individual’s name, address, phone number, or e-mail address. DERMASCOPE will not obtain any personal information about users unless they voluntarily choose to provide that information. This personal information that users choose to provide will be used for business purposes only.
Non-personal information may also be gathered through a user’s website visit. This may include a website visitor’s viewing behaviors, like content item visits, date and time of access, and click thrus. It may also include certain non-identifiable information, such as the type of browser or operating system the visitor is using, the domain name of their internet service provider, and their Internet Protocol (IP) address. Such information is used so that relevant content, advertising, and promotional offers can be delivered during the user’s current and future visits to the website and to enhance overall user experience.
DERMASCOPE uses any information collected for the benefit of users. DERMASCOPE does not share information with any third-party organizations.
Though unlikely, there may be instances when DERMASCOPE is required by law, legal process, litigation, or requests from public or governmental authorities to provide access to its databases or to disclose information about its users. DERMASCOPE may also disclose information about users if they determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect its operations or other users or to enforce the terms and conditions set forth in this policy. In those instances, information is disclosed only for that purpose.
SHARING OF INFORMATION
DERMASCOPE may share aggregated demographic information with its partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
For subscriptions and other services, DERMASCOPE uses an outside shipping company to ship orders and a credit card processing company to bill users for services. These companies do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling orders.
By choosing to disable cookies, users understand that they may limit their own access to content on DERMASCOPE.com.
Wherever DERMASCOPE collects sensitive information, such as credit card data, that information is encrypted and transmitted in a secure way. Users can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of their web browser or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While DERMASCOPE uses encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, it also protects information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job, such as billing or customer service, are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers and servers on which personally identifiable information is stored are kept in a secure environment.
