Privacy Policy

PeerVoice shares your concerns about maintaining the privacy of personal information collected on the Internet. PeerVoice ensures that confidentiality of data relating to individual visitors to a medical/health web site, including their identity, is respected by this web site. The web site owners undertake to honour or exceed the legal requirements of medical/health information privacy that apply in the country and state where the web site and mirror sites are located.

Privacy Policy Changes:
Minor changes to our privacy policy may occur. If privacy policies change in a way that significantly affects the way we handle personal information, we will not use the information we have previously collected without obtaining consent. We will post all privacy policy changes on our web site in a timely manner.

Collection of Personal Information from Site Users:
Visitors to PeerVoice can access and browse the site, without disclosing any personally identifiable information. PeerVoice does track some information provided by your browser, such as the time and date of access, the web site you came from, the type of browser used, and other information that does not personally identify you. Visitors registering for services such as email updates, or completing programme evaluation forms are requested to provide personal information, such as name, contact information, and medical specialty. We clearly label which information is required for registration, and which information is optional, on our registration forms. PeerVoice will not collect personally identifiable information without consent and will not share this data with any external partners.

PeerVoice may request information from its visitors or users such as feedback from evaluation questionnaires in order to improve or enhance its current services or develop new ones.

Use of Cookies:
Cookies are a web technology used by web sites to identify a visitor as he/she navigates through the web site. We use cookies to personalise our web site and to track activity across all our web sites. Cookie technology helps PeerVoice determine which features and services are important to which audiences so that we may know where to invest our ongoing development and creative efforts.

PeerVoice may place Internet  "cookies" on users' hard drives. Internet cookies save data about individual users, such as name, password, user-name, screen preferences, and the pages of the site viewed. When a user revisits the site, PeerVoice may recognise the user by the Internet cookie and customise the experience accordingly. PeerVoice does not, and will not, use cookies or any other technology to track or report on member activity when they are not on our web sites, nor pass member data to third party web sites. You may decline Internet cookies, if any, by using the appropriate feature of your web client software, if available. However, declining to use cookies may impede the ability of the site to function properly.

Collection of Personal Data from Children:
PeerVoice web sites are designed and intended for the use of adult medical professionals, and are not intended for, or designed to be used by, children under the age of 18. PeerVoice does not knowingly solicit information from children and we do not knowingly market the site or any goods or services to children. No one under the age of 13 should submit any personal information to PeerVoice.

Use of Personal Data Collected:
PeerVoice may use the personal data it collects for internal purposes, namely, for administering the site, personalising the site for you, analysing trends, calculating overall usage statistics, for editorial, feedback, marketing and promotional purposes, and content improvement. PeerVoice directs editorial and other content to readers who are most likely to be interested in information about specific subject matter, as stated by the user. Occasionally, PeerVoice may contact users to advise them of new services or enhancements to current ones.

PeerVoice will not disclose to third parties any individually identifying information, such as names, postal and e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, and other personal information which users voluntarily provide, except to the extent necessary to respond to a user's specific request, comply with applicable laws, court orders or other valid legal processes, or to protect the rights or property of PeerVoice.
