Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may provide via this site. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this site.


Your consent

By using this site, you agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy. Whenever you submit information via this site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


About children

This site is intended for health professionals only and is not intended for children under the age of 18. We will not knowingly collect information from site visitors in this age group. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose to Web sites.


Active information collection

Like many Web sites, this site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail, feedback forms, and, eventually, discussion forums. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address and so on). Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to gain access to specified features or to participate in a particular activity. In some cases you will be given an opportunity to opt out of such data collection. You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.


Passive information collection

As you navigate through this Web site, we mây collect certain information passively (that is, gather it without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet tags, and navigational data collection. We use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses on this site. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user's computer). We may use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and administer and improve the site. We may also use "cookies" and internet tags at this site.

This site uses navigational data as a further means of improving our product. For example, we record what pages are viewed by users, the frequency with which pages are viewed and the time spent viewing them.


Use and disclosure of information

The edition of www.gastro-pro.org that you are currently visiting has a registration process for new users and will at intervals post interactive surveys designed to elicit a general profile of its users. The comments and data that you submit to the registration process on this site or in a user survey will be used only for the purposes of helping us to shape editorial content to your needs. Except as otherwise stated, we may use the information you supply to us to improve the content of our site, to customise the site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our own marketing and research purposes, and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.

We will not use your comments or personally identifiable data for commercial purposes nor will we share your comments or personally-identifiable data with third parties. All data collected from users of this site remains the exclusive property of Gastro-Pro. We will not disclose your personally identifiable information to any of our current founder-members, including Johnson & Johnson, OMGE, OMED and OESO. If you provide personally identifiable information to this site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We will take reasonable measures to prevent personally identifiable information from being combined with passively collected information, unless you consent otherwise. We will only disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties:

 with your active consent; or

 to contractors we use to support our business (e.g., fulfilment services, technical support, delivery services, and financial institutions), in which case we will require such third parties to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy;

 in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of this site to which the information relates, in which case we will require any such buyer to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy; or

 where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations. In addition, we will make full use of all information acquired through this site that is not in personally identifiable form.


Access and correction

To keep your personally identifiable information accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as specified below. We will take reasonable steps to update or correct personally identifiable information in our possession that you have previously submitted via this site.


Security

We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on this site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.


Links to other Web sites

This site may contain links or references to other Web sites. Please be aware that we do not control other Web sites and that, in any case, this Privacy Policy does not apply to those Web sites. We encourage you to read the privacy policy of every Web site you visit.


Other terms

Your use of this site is subject to our Legal Notice. The site is governed by English law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.


How to contact us

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about this Privacy Policy or the information practices of this Web site, please contact Timothy Nater, Gastro-Pro Production Co-ordinator.


Changes to this privacy policy

If this privacy policy changes, the revised policy will be posted on this site. Please check back periodically, and especially before you provide any personally identifiable information.
