DecisionHealth, owner of this Web site, is committed to protecting your privacy.
We hold our relationship with users in the highest regard. This policy describes
the ways that personally identifiable and anonymous information about our online
users, event registrants and print subscribers is gathered, our information sharing
practices, and how online users and print subscribers may request changes to the
way this information is shared.
Personally Identifiable Information We Collect and Use
DecisionHealth is the sole owner of the information collected on this Web site.
DecisionHealth collects information from our users at several different points on
our Web site.
In order to use certain areas of this Web site, a user may be asked to complete
a registration form. During registration a user will be required to give at least
a minimum amount of contact information (such as name and email address), so that
we can validate the content sets herein to which you'll have access. We also use
this information to contact the user about services on our site for which he/she
has expressed interest. Some information is optional while other information may
be required. In some cases a unique identifier (such as, username and password)
may be required in order to obtain further benefits from our web site.
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with the best
and most useful content and services. In addition, we may use the information collected
from you to contact you from time to time regarding our products and/or services
complimentary to those topics addressed in this website or the job function you
perform. At all times you have the right to request that we cease contacting you
by 'opting out' of our communications.
with our online content. For instance, we may use a cookie to identify members so
they don't have to re-enter their email address and password when they come to our
sites. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies which enable us to
track and target the interests of our users to improve the content on our site.
By adjusting your settings on your browser, you may elect not to allow cookies to
be collected. However, it is likely that some areas of the site will not function
properly if you do so.
Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol
(IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages,
platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer
the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information
for aggregate use.
Third Party Advertising
Some of our advertisers use third-party companies to serve their advertisements
on our sites and, in some cases, in our HTML-formatted newsletters. Often, these
third-party advertising companies employ cookie and pixel tag technologies to measure
the effectiveness of Web and email advertisements. We do not give any personally
identifiable information to them as part of this relationship. Use of their tracking
technology is subject to their own privacy policies.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal
information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action
is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal
process served on our Web site.

privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
Surveys, Polls & Contests
We may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys and/or
vote in polls on our site. Participation in these surveys, polls or contests is
completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose
this information. The requested information typically includes contact information
(such as name and email address). Contact information will be used to notify the
winners and award prizes. Anonymous Survey information will be used for purposes
of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. Users' personally
identifiable information is not shared with third parties unless we give prior notice
and choice. Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys or contests,
they may not use users' personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
