QxMD safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures.

These procedures include limiting access to the information in various ways depending on the nature of the information as well as training our employees on the proper handling of subscriber information.

6. How does QxMD use “cookies” and log files?

“Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. We use both session cookies and persistent cookies on our website to help us provide you with a more personalized experience. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser settings to prevent that if you would rather not store the information for future use. Disabling cookies in your browser, however, may prevent access to some parts of our website.

As is true of most websites, we gather and use certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp. We use this information to analyze trends, to administer the website, to track users’ movements around the website and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our website.

7. How does QxMD link with other websites?

The QxMD website contains links to and from other websites. QxMD does not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.

Please note that our site uses sponsored Google advertisments. We advise you to review Google’s privacy policy to understand how they use your data and data from our site to generate targetted advertising for you.

8. Is this privacy statement subject to change?

Yes. The QxMD Privacy Policy is subject to change at any time.

If we decide to materially change our privacy practices, we will post a prominent notice of those changes on the homepage and/or send an email so that you are always kept informed of what data we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.

9. Important Terms

In this policy, when we use the term “we” or “our”, we mean both QxMD and third parties with whom QxMD contracts to assist in its business operations. These contractors may, however, only access your information in furtherance of their services to QxMD and may not use or disclose your information except as permitted by QxMD.

What is “personally identifiable” information?

When reviewing any privacy policy on the Internet, you should be familiar with the terms “personally identifiable” and “non-personally identifiable” information. “Personally identifiable information” is any information that can be used to identify, contact or locate you as an individual, as well as any additional data tied to such information. Common examples are your name and email address. Non-personally identifiable information is information — either in “profile” or “aggregate” form — that, in contrast, is not intended to identify you as an individual.
