Privacy Policy

PeerQuiz shares your concerns about maintaining the privacy of personal information collected on the Internet. PeerQuiz 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 honor or exceed the legal requirements of medical/health information that apply in the United States of America and 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 PeerQuiz programs can access and browse the site, without disclosing any personally identifiable information. PeerQuiz 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 program 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. PeerQuiz will not collect personally identifiable information without consent and will not share this data with any external partners.

PeerQuiz 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 personalize our Web site and to track activity across all our Web sites. Cookie technology helps PeerQuiz determine which features and services are important to which audiences so that we may know where to invest our ongoing development and creative efforts.

PeerQuiz may place Internet "cookies" on users' hard drives. Internet cookies save data about individual users, such as name, password, username, screen preferences, and the pages of the site viewed. When a user revisits the site, PeerQuiz may recognize the user by the Internet cookie and customize the experience accordingly. PeerQuiz 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 by adjusting your Web browser settings. However, declining to use cookies may impede the ability of the site to function properly.

Typically, only aggregated data will be provided to commercial supporters of PeerQuiz educational programs, and only such information that is relevant to their interests and/or programs that they support will be provided. However, to the extent that a commercial supporter of educational programs may already have personally identifiable information about a user, PeerQuiz may inform that commercial supporter as to whether that user did or did not participate in any of its sponsored programs.

Internal PeerQuiz editorial and customer support staff have access to files containing personal information, including evaluation forms and aggregated participant information. These files can be accessed in order to respond to user questions or comments. Our staff will only use aggregate information and evaluation data in assessing educational needs and planning marketing activities. Personally identifiable information will not be used for this purpose.

No one under the age of 13 should submit any personal information to PeerQuiz.

Use of Personal Data Collected:

PeerQuiz may use the personal data it collects for internal purposes, namely, for administering the site, personalizing the site for you, analyzing trends, calculating overall usage statistics, for editorial, feedback, market research, marketing and promotional purposes, and content improvement. PeerQuiz 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, PeerQuiz may contact users to advise them of new services or enhancements to current ones.

PeerQuiz will not disclose to third parties any individually identifying information, such as names, postal and email 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 PeerQuiz.
