Effective Date: August 25, 2014
Acceptance of Terms
Peeradigm may share your Personal Information in a variety of ways, including, without limitation:
1. Publication of Membership Directories and Registration Lists. As a professional organization, Peeradigm may publish the Personal Information you provide on our Sites and in various print or digital formats to allow other members to find you. Such publication may include, without limitation, directories, membership lists, and other registration lists for Peeradigm programs and events. Peeradigm will not include sensitive information, such as financial account information, and members may request their Personal Information be excluded from publication by contacting Peeradigm at either of the contact points listed below.
2. Trusted Third-Party Companies. Peeradigm may share your Personal Information with certain third parties to fulfill service requests initiated by you and to provide limited services, such as packaging, printing, mailing and delivering promotional offers, answering customer questions about products or services, data modeling, and processing event registration. These third parties shall be strictly prohibited from making use of your Personal Information, other than to provide the services described herein, and as such, they are required, in accordance with this policy, to maintain the strictest of confidentiality with regards to all your information.
3. Legal Necessity or Protection of Peeradigm's Interests. Peeradigm may disclose your Personal Information, without prior notice to you, if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to any legal requirements or comply with any legal process served on Peeradigm or our Sites; (b) maintain, safeguard, or preserve all of Peeradigm's rights or property; and (c) protect the personal safety of Peeradigm personnel, those who use our Sites, and the general public.
4. Email Communications. Peeradigm may share email communications received by you with a customer service representative, employee, or agent best able to address your inquiry and will make every effort to respond in a timely fashion upon receipt of such communications. Because email does not provide a completely secure and confidential means of communication, please do not use email if you wish to keep your communication private. Rather, call Peeradigm at the number listed below with your request.
All Personal Information provided to Peeradigm remains confidential. We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your Personal Information to third parties. This does not include trusted third-party companies (described above) who assist Peeradigm in operating our Sites, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as such companies agree to keep your Personal Information confidential.
Peeradigm features several community areas on our Sites where members with similar interests can share information and support one another or where members can present cases for peer discussion. Please remember that any information disclosed by you and others in these areas is not private and becomes public information to any members participating in or visiting such areas. You should, therefore, exercise caution when deciding to disclose your Personal Information in the community areas on our Sites.
You can access or change any Personal Information stored on our Sites through your "My Account" page. You can also update your Personal Information by contacting Peeradigm using the contact information listed below.
Peeradigm automatically collects Non-Personal Information from all visitors to our Sites. "Non-Personal Information" means information that Peeradigm cannot use to identify or contact you, such as browser information, computer type, operating system, internet service providers, and usage data. We collect Non-Personal Information about your use of our Sites and other websites by implementing Cookies and Web Beacons.
"Cookies" are strings of data Peeradigm's system sends to your computer and then uses to identify your computer when you return to our Sites. They consist of two types: Session Cookies and Persistent Cookies. "Session Cookies" are not stored on your computer and do not persist after you close your browser. "Persistent Cookies," on the other hand, are stored on your computer and may remain even after you close your browser. For security and privacy reasons, these cookies are readable only by our Sites and do not contain Personal Information beyond your name and Peeradigm member number, if applicable. You can delete or disable Cookies at any time by using the privacy settings in your browser. If you disable cookies completely, you may not be able to use some of the services offered by our Sites.
"Web Beacons" are graphic image files imbedded in a web page used to monitor activity thereon and send information of such usage back to the page's home server, which can belong to the host site, a network advertiser, or other third party. Such information typically includes, without limitation, your IP address, the URL of the page on which the beacon is located, and the identification of any Cookies on your computer previously placed by that server.
Peeradigm may use your Non-Personal Information to improve our online offerings by identifying you and prompting our Sites to provide your username (not your password), so you can sign in more quickly. We may also use your Non-Personal Information to improve our customer service by reminding you of your past purchases and suggesting similar products or services. Finally, we may use your Non-Personal Information to compile statistical information about traffic to our Sites, such as the time you spend at our Sites and the pages you visit most often. Those statistics do not include your Personal Information.
California Privacy Rights
To obtain this information, please send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put "Request for California Privacy Information" in the subject line, and your full name, address, and Peeradigm member number, if applicable, in the body of your message. In response, Peeradigm will provide the requested information to you at your email address.
Please be aware that Peeradigm's response will include only information covered by the "Shine the Light" requirements.
Use by Children
Peeradigm did not design our Sites for use by children, as such are member-only forums for licensed mental health professionals. We therefore do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of eighteen (18) without verifiable parental consent. If it is determined that such information has been inadvertently collected on anyone under the age of eighteen (18), we shall immediately take the necessary steps to ensure such information is deleted from our system's database. Anyone under the age of eighteen (18) must use our Sites only with the supervision of a parent or guardian.
Unsubscribe or Opt Out
After you register with Peeradigm, you may occasionally receive information about our products or services via email or newsletters. You will have the option to unsubscribe or opt out of these communications by clicking "Unsubscribe" at the bottom of the email or sending an email to email@example.com. Please put "Unsubscribe" in the subject line. To unsubscribe or opt out from any third-party websites, you must go to that specific website to access those options.
Peeradigm implements commercially reasonable security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data. We restrict access to Personal Information to Peeradigm's business partners who may need to know such information to operate, develop, or improve Peeradigm's services. These individuals or partner organizations are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
As an additional security measure, certain areas of our Sites may require a User ID or email address and password to help protect your privacy.
Unfortunately, transmitting data over the Internet is not 100% secure. Accordingly, and despite our efforts, Peeradigm cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or over our Sites.
