Collecting Information

PER® gathers and tracks information/data that users provide through registration on our site. In addition to this gathering of information by the registration of users and in an effort to improve our site, PER® also gathers information through tracking systems depending on the service being used by you. The tracking systems include deriving data by tallying page views throughout our site and capturing information on the type of browser being used to view the site, tracking what pages you have visited while on the site, and tracking what computers respond to a PER® survey. This information enables us to better provide educational programming and to respond to our users' needs and is gathered solely on an aggregate basis.

PER® may gather information on our users in the following ways:

* Registration

We do not collect personally identifiable information (PII) from you unless you provide it to us knowingly in connection with an educational activity. For the registration process, PER® may require some information, like name, e-mail address, and profession, while other information requested will be voluntary and optional. Information collected in the registration process is never shared with third parties in a personally identifiable way.

* Usage Tracking

PER® uses traffic analysis software on our servers to track user traffic patterns throughout our site. PER® uses this data to break down overall usage statistics according to IP address, domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the data automatically sent by the browser whenever a web page is requested.

* Other Usage

PER® uses PII, and any data, personal or otherwise, that you provide and which may be saved on the Website, to provide our products and services. In addition to the ways in which we may use NPI, examples of the ways in which we may use PII include but are not limited to: * Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that resides only on your own computer and that can be accessed only by the server that originally created the cookie. A cookie cannot store or send back any information to PER® that you have not specifically and voluntarily provided while on a PER® site, or that is not among the information mentioned above that is contained in every user's browser (i.e., domain name, browser type). We use cookies only so that we may tally the number of unique users who visit our site, and potentially to permit greater personalization of the site to your preferences and specifications.

2. Sharing of the information

PER® may provide aggregate Non-Personal Information (NPI) to third parties. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of users of the Website and the activities they conduct while on the Website. We might for example inform a pharmaceutical company (that exhibits at a PER® conference or sponsors non-CME symposia held in conjunction with a PER® conference) that “25% of conference attendees/participants are medical oncologists” or that “10% of our conference attendees/participants work in an academic setting.”

PER® discloses your “limited PII” which does not include your professional affiliation/institution, address, or contact information to third parties who solicit and/or manage non-CME symposia held in conjunction with PER®’s conferences.  PER® requires any other organization that we retain or engage to provide support services to us to conform to our privacy information pertaining to “Sharing of the Information” section of this Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. PER® also provides Aggregate NPI to third parties who exhibit at PER® conferences.

Third party vendors are prohibited from using NPI or “limited PI” contained in pre-registration and attendee lists to: While information is critical to PER®’s ability to provide high quality service to you, our most important asset is the trust that our visitors place in how we provide that service. Keeping our visitor information secure, and using it only as our visitors would want us to, is a top priority for all of us at PER®. Consequently our privacy standards are designed to, on a commercially reasonable basis: PER® does not share PII with any third party except as outlined in the “Sharing of the Information” section of this Privacy Policy and Terms of Use or as necessary to comply with applicable legal requirements.

We encourage you to read the posted privacy policy statement whenever interacting with any web site.

3. "No-spam" policy

Your e-mail address will not be sold to a third party if you register to receive information about our certified medical education offerings or educational surveys or if you participate in an educational activity on our site.

4. Delete/deactivate policy

You may request to have your personal information removed from PER®’s databases by sending a request via e-mail to info@gotoper.com, including your first and last names and e-mail address with which you originally registered. Changes or corrections to your information may be submitted in the same fashion. Please note that if you have received credit for participating in a certified medical education activity, information collected for the certificate process must remain on file with us as the accredited provider in accordance with governing compliance regulations.

5. Opt-in List Privacy Policy

When you register with PER®, you are joining an opt-in list, which means you may occasionally receive educational activity announcements or related information, whether it is sent directly by us or by our approved educational partners.
