Privacy and Confidentiality for Internet Activities

Medical Education Resources maintains high standards for the protection of privacy over the Internet. The purpose of this statement is to explain what information we obtain, how it is used, and how visitors can restrict its use or disclosure.

The only information MER obtains is information supplied voluntarily by the visitor.

We do not sell or disclose individually-identifiable information obtained on-line unless it is required by law, or disclosure is necessary to protect the safety of customers, employees, or property.

We use the Information to grade your post-test and to send you a certificate of completion of the CME activity. If we use a third-party company to grade your post-test and issue certificates of completion, we will give the Information to that company for that purpose only.

For each CME activity that you take, you must complete an evaluation questionnaire. That questionnaire asks if you are willing to participate in a follow-up survey. If you answer yes, we will use your name and contact information to send you the survey.

We may use the Information to invite you to participate in other CME activities that we may offer.

On occasion, the commercial supporter of a CME activity will ask us for a list of the people who participated in that activity, so that it may document the first level of outcomes-based evaluation in CME (i.e., who attended, which medical specialties/practices were represented, how this compares to the target audience, and whether the activity needs to be repeated because significant numbers of the target audience did not attend). In that event, we will request in writing that the supporter not contact you directly for any purpose.

Medical Education Resources is committed to safeguarding customer privacy and we require our employees to protect the privacy of information about our customers. Should you wish to delete your information from our files or discuss our privacy policy, please contact us.
