"Personal Information" means information that alone or when in combination with other information may be used to readily identify, contact, or locate you, such as: name, address, email address, or phone number.  We do not consider Personal Information to include information that has been anonymized so that it does not allow a third party to easily identify a specific individual.

What information does Integrated Media Solutions collect and how is it used?

Our Sites collect information volunteered by you in several areas, including newsletter sign up pages, site registrations, contests and promotions, product reviews and website surveys, purchasing a subscription or access to courses, customer service requests, and requests for product information. The information we request for you to participate in these features may include Personal Information such as name, address, telephone and fax numbers, email address, username and password, AGD number, NPI number, license number, profile picture, as well as "demographic" information such as your hobbies or personal preferences. We will tell you at the time we collect information whether the information requested is necessary for you to participate in a particular feature.

Our Sites do not collect payment and billing information.  We use third-party payment processers that collect such information directly from you.  We may receive summary transaction information from our third-party payment processers, such as the date and amount of the transaction.

The information we collect is used for internal and service-related purposes, such as to respond to your specific requests, to send you periodic information and special offers from Integrated Media Solutions and our sponsors and partners, to provide you with updates on Integrated Media Solutions offerings and features, to provide you with product information from manufacturers in our database, to provide notice of changes to our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, to provide and improve our services, and to provide our sponsors with aggregate data about our users. The information you provide is also used to understand users' interests and behavior, and may be combined with information Integrated Media Solutions may have from other online or offline sources.  We may anonymize and aggregate data we collect and use it for any purpose.

Integrated Media Solutions uses cookies and similar technology to identify registered users of our Sites and to automatically give them access to "member only" content areas such as articles and reports, and to provide them with access to previously-stored information. Integrated Media Solutions and our third-party partners, such as online advertising networks and website analytics providers, also use cookies and other similar technology for such activities as estimating our audience size and usage patterns, showing you personalized advertising on other websites based on your usage of the Sites, and tracking the aggregate number of customer returns at our Sites.  Click here to learn more information about how we use a third party service to collect and use information.  Our partners also may collect information about your online activities over time and on other web sites or apps.  Finally, Integrated Media Solutions uses cookies to help simplify the process of filling out certain forms on our Sites that allow you to request information from manufactures in our catalog and/or our advertisers. You can choose whether or not you accept cookies by changing the settings of your browser. However, certain parts of our Sites may not work if you turn off cookies on your browser.

With whom does Integrated Media Solutions share your information?

Integrated Media Solutions shares your information with our affiliates and business partners, including agents such as third party mail processing facilities. We may employ contractors to help with our operations. Some or all of these contractors may access the databases of user information. These contractors are and will be subject to confidentiality agreements that restrict their use and disclosure of all information they obtain through their relationship with Integrated Media Solutions.  When sharing your information with these third parties, Integrated Media Solutions requires that the third parties follow practices substantially similar to those of Integrated Media Solutions, and that your information not be further shared with any other third parties. Integrated Media Solutions will also share your information if required by law to do so, to comply with applicable laws or valid legal process, or to protect the rights or property of Integrated Media Solutions and others. Additionally, if part or some of our assets are purchased by a third party, Integrated Media Solutions will share your information with the purchaser of all or part of our assets.  We may also disclose your Personal Information with your permission.

If you use our "tell a friend" service to email one of our articles, reports or product descriptions to a friend or colleague, Integrated Media Solutions will automatically send this person a one-time email, attaching to the email the content you wished for your friend to receive. Your email address will appear on the "From" line of this email, thereby disclosing this information to whoever opens and reads the email. The email address of you or your friend or colleague will not be stored in our databases based on this service.

Integrated Media Solutions may provide users with the opportunity to request additional information from product manufacturers in our online directory or from our advertisers. If you specifically request information from a manufacturer or from one of our advertisers, your contact information will be given to that manufacturer or advertiser, to allow them to decide the best way to fulfill your request.
