Section 1. Information we collect
In general, you can visit this Site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. Some features of this Site (including restricted portions of this Site) may require users to register (referred to for convenience as “Registration Pages”) and provide certain personal information to access certain portions of this Site. Registration pages may contain functions for collecting various pieces of your personal information that may include your name, address, email address, phone number(s), credit card or account information, company, industry, information about your interests in and use of various products, programs and services, health information, medical history and any other information that you decide to provide to us.
We only collect your personal information if you voluntarily submit the information to us for such purposes as registering for the use of certain services or restricted portions of this Site or other subscription websites operated by MIM, completion of surveys, submitting applications for employment, product or service purchases, or requests for information, products, or services. If you are not comfortable with this, you can choose not to use this part of this Site. When the registration form is presented to you, we clearly indicate what information is required for the particular feature, and what information is optional.
Site administrators have access to information you provide when you register, but this is for purposes of administering these public services.
Registration for certain services may require you to choose a user name and a password. This password ensures your identify and allows you to change your personal information and options. All registration information, beyond registering for e-mail publications, is sent encrypted via secure socket layers (ssl), so that information cannot be intercepted and read.
If you so choose, you may provide us with additional demographic and related information. This data helps us understand who our users are so that we can develop new features and services. We do not share information provided in this manner that can identify individuals without an individual’s consent, unless required by law.
You can be removed from our registration database at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This site may offer features delivered by e-mail. This service is maintained and administered by MIM staff. We do not sell or otherwise share these e-mail lists with others.

To protect your security and privacy, we require that you (as opposed to a third party on your behalf) enter the personal information that we collect and that the information be current, although MIM disclaims any legal duty to verify the accuracy of any personal data that you provide to MIM. You are free to access the personal information we have on file by contacting our Customer Service department by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, at any time you can request that we modify or delete your personal information by sending an email to us at email@example.com with the words “UPDATE MY INFORMATION” in the subject line.

Section 2. How we use the information we collect and who we share it with
Unless otherwise specified herein, MIM reserves the right to compile, save, use within the scope of our activities, and analyze any and all data about you (contact and personal data, use history, etc.) that we collect from you through this Site. We may use the personal information about you that you provide to us for our internal purposes such as responding to your requests for information or materials, contacting you, assessing your application for a position with MIM or an entity related to MIM, conducting internal analyses such as surveys and market research, processing and completing orders, processing your payment, administering your account, and administering and developing our business relationship with you or the company you represent. We may also use your personal information to communicate with you, such as, for example, to provide you with administrative communications regarding your account, newsletters, press releases, or information relating to products, offers, or programs that may be of interest to you.
MIM has a general policy of not disclosing your personal information to third parties unless you have consented to such sharing. However, we may share the personal information about you that you provide to us with trusted companies we have hired to provide services for us, such as sending out our newsletters, fulfilling orders you submit, or collecting and processing information on our behalf. These companies – our vendors – are contractually bound to use personal information that we share with them only to perform the services we have hired them to provide. Among the vendors whose services we employ may be companies that help us deliver online advertisements such as banner ads. These companies may collect and use information you provide to us to better understand the offers, promotions, and types of advertising that are most appealing to our customers. After the information is collected by these third parties, it is aggregated so it is not personally identifiable or tied to you or any other user. If you would prefer that these companies not collect your information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may also share your personal information in the event that the business of MIM is transferred to another entity by way of merger, sale of the company’s assets, or otherwise. If you consent to sharing of your personal information, we may share your information with MIM related entities and selected third parties so that they may provide you with or contact you regarding information and materials that may be of interest to you. Please refer to the section below on opting in and out.
We may also collect and group demographic and preferences information, responses to surveys and other personal information that we collect from you into an aggregate, non-personally identifiable form for disclosure to our existing or potential business partners, affiliates, sponsors or other third parties. However, please be assured that this aggregate data will in no way personally identify you or any other visitors to this Site.
We do not track information on a specific individual. From time to time, we may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Site, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Site, how long they stay on that page and which hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. We collect this information through the use of “cookies” and other tracking technologies, which are discussed in greater detail below in the section on cookies. This is required to see what areas of this Site are popular and what areas and processes need improvement.
As with other aggregated data, we may disclose such data to our existing or potential business partners, affiliates, sponsors or other third parties, but this aggregate data will in no way personally identify you or any other visitors to this Site.
Section 3. Personalized URL Links
On occasion, we may personalize and customize websites for certain users. Invitations to visit these customized websites will generally be sent to you via an email containing a personalized URL, a notice on a registration page, or in response to you logging on to a certain portion of this Site. If you are invited to visit one of these sites, you may find it customized with references to products and/or services that we believe may be of interest to you based on your previous interactions with MIM and on information you have provided to us. While you are visiting these websites, we may collect tracking or other non-personally identifiable information about your visit to better tailor the site to your interests.

We may also employ software technology known as “web beacons” or “clear GIFs” which helps us keep track of what content on this Site is effective. Web beacons are small graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track the online movements of Internet users. Web beacons are embedded in the web pages you review, so they are not stored on your hard drive. The web beacons we use do not track or collect any personally identifiable information about you and they are in no way linked to your personally identifiable information.
