Gathering of Personally – Identifying Information
Certain visitors to InterClinical websites choose to interact with InterClinical in ways that require InterClinical to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that InterClinical gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at interclinical.com.au to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with InterClinical are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, InterClinical collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with InterClinical. InterClinical does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
We may also collect your personal information while conducting surveys or market research and we may seek other additional information from you. These surveys will provide us with information that will help us make improvements to the type and quality of goods and services that we offer you.
InterClinical will collect this information from time to time, when we request it from you, or when you authorise others to provide it to us.
How we use your information
InterClinical uses your information to help you complete a transaction, communicate back to you, update you on your professional account and to personalize our Web site for you. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are not retained for other purposes. From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you to provide you with information we think would be of particular interest. At a minimum, we will always give you the opportunity to decline such direct marketing. We will also follow local requirements, such as allowing you to opt out before receiving unsolicited contact, where applicable.
Accuracy and Access
InterClinical will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others, unless we have your permission or are required by law.
