orthoFAQ.com is committed to protecting your privacy. The following statement outlines our privacy policy. We do not require visitors to provide any information to use the website or search functionality, or to access all of the publicly available community features on our site.

 

Information You Give Us

 

Personally Identifiable Information: If you choose to sign up for an orthoFAQ.com membership to gain additional functionality, we will ask you to provide your name, age, email address and other optional information such as location, occupation, interests, social presence and institution. We will NOT disclose, sell or exchange your personally identifiable information to or with anyone, without your specific permission, except when we believe disclosure is absolutely necessary to: (1) comply with the law or legal process; (2) protect or defend the rights or property of orthoFAQ.com or others; (3) enforce this Agreement; or (4) respond to claims that the contents of any communications violate the rights of others.

 

Email Addresses: Members and visitors of orthoFAQ.com can readily access email any of the members who have chosen to be visible to public. Each member can turn off this functionality at any time if he/she so chooses.

 

Mailing List: Members are automatically enrolled for our mailing list service. Users can contact us anytime to have them removed. Our mailing list is used to keep you and others informed about orthopedics and orthoFAQ.com. We do not share or sell your information to any third parties. We may use data from the list in the form of aggregate statistics, which do not identify you, for tracking web usage only.

 

Automatic Information

 

Aggregated User Information That Does Not Identify Any User Individually: We perform statistical analysis of the collective characteristics and behavior of our members and visitors, to measure overall demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the orthoFAQ.com domain and to analyze how and where to use our resources. We also use the aggregate data collected to inform our sponsors and/or content partners as to the number of people who have seen and “clicked” on their advertisement and/or content. In addition, we may compile and disclose aggregate information about users for promotional or other purposes. For example, we might want to disclose that a certain percentage of our users are located within a particular geographic area.

 

Cookies: We use cookies for session tracking, and user preferences for registered users on our site. We may also use cookies to help us determine how long users view particular content, which particular content (e.g., advertising) users view, which content or sites users link to, and which orthoFAQ.com services members and visitors use.

We may at times use a few third party ad networks to serve ads on our site, such as Google Adsense and others. The cookies received with banner ads served by these networks are used to collect and build anonymous behavioral profiles by these companies to deliver targeted ads and tracking referrals, and we do not have access to this information.

If there is anything else we can do to protect your privacy, please let us know via our contact page.
