Even if you do not submit personal information through the Website, we may gather navigational information about where visitors go on or through the Website, what materials or advertisements or links they “click” or access, and information about the technical efficiencies of our Website and services (i.e., time to connect to the Website, time to download pages, etc.). This information allows us to see which areas of our Website are most visited and helps us better understand the user experience. This information also helps us improve the quality of the Website by recognizing and delivering more of the features, areas, and services our visitors prefer. In this process of gathering information, we may collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information (for example, domain type, browser type and version, service provider and IP address, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click-stream data). We may also create and use electronic records to compile statistics about how our visitors collectively interact with our Website. We may also supplement this information with information from publicly available or commercial databases.
If you are accessing the Website via a mobile device, information about your use of the Website, as well as your mobile device type, carrier and location, may be communicated to us, and such information may be shared with your mobile carrier or access provider.
We may use web server logs. A web "server log" is a record of activity created by a computer that delivers certain webpages to your browser. Certain activities that you perform on our Website may record information in server logs. For example, if you enter a search term into a search box located on the Website, the server log may record the search term, the link you clicked on to bring you to our Website and/or information about your browser, such as your IP address and the cookies set on your browser.
Search Queries on Our Website:
We may provide you with options to search for information on the Website. If you enter information in a search query box, we may store that information and we may aggregate that information with other information we may have about the browser and/or IP address from which the search query originated.
From time to time, the Company may engage your expertise/professional knowledge by requesting you to participate in data collection or market research surveys to better inform our clients and conduct market analytics.

Information requested may include contact information, which may be used to provide you with financial remuneration for participation (such as email address and phone number), demographic information (such as postal code, age level, gender, etc.) and other personal information pertaining to your role and responsibilities in a healthcare organization. The aggregate, non-personally identifiable information collected from all survey respondents may be shared with third-parties (clients) who sponsor such surveys. If your information gathered via a survey will be used in a manner different from that described in this Privacy Statement, such use will be detailed in the survey instructions.
