PRIVACY, SECURITY, LEGAL AND COPYRIGHT POLICY

The Institute of Medical Business Advisors and Healthcare Organizations: [Journal of Financial Management Strategies] has a firm commitment to protect your privacy. This Privacy Statement discloses our policies regarding the information we obtain from you and how we limit and protect the uses to which that information is put. We are committed to building the trust and confidence of our subscribers and contributors by promoting the principles of disclosure and transparency. These policies apply only to the site, which consists solely of those web pages we control. You should determine what privacy policies apply to other web sites before providing information to them. If you have questions or concerns regarding these policies, or any other aspect of the site or your use of it, please contact us by e-mail.

We may obtain various types of contact and user information from you, such as your IP (or Internet) address, practice, hospital, clinic and user names, email addresses, profession or medical specialty. We also collect and store statistics and other information about the online activities of our visitors on an aggregated basis, such as the number of people who view each page. We obtain information several ways. Some is required as part of the system use process. Additional, information is gathered through “cookies”, which deposit special codes on your computer.

We generally use your information only to operate the site and make your experience more efficient, effective and enjoyable. As a general practice, we do not distribute or otherwise give away your personally identifiable information to any other party, except in limited circumstances such as compliance with law or with your permission, as noted below. Most uses of information are for site administration, such as processing questions and tracking survey replies, diagnosing problems with our server, or security issues. We may also use this information to contact you for operational purposes, such as answering subscription questions. We may also use it to provide you with information about iMBA, Inc. or to send you educational material from alliance partners.

You may opt-out from receiving promotional materials and mailings as described below. We sometimes share aggregated data with some of our independent alliance partners. However, none of this information identifies you in any way without your consent. For example, we may share data that show a certain percentage of users have a certain medical or administrative interest, but there would be no identification of specific users. Only if you consent, will we share personal, identifiable data about you to third parties. For example, if in a telephone conversation, email, fax or on a particular page where we ask for personal subscription information, you can be assured that the data we ask for may be only shared with the publisher.

We may send you emails or other information that we believe may be of special interest to you. Only iMBA Inc or our affiliates will send you these materials. If you do not wish to receive these materials, you may opt out from such information contacts. You may indicate that you do not wish to receive our emails by simply informing us, or your professional sales associate. You also have choices concerning cookies. Your Internet browser allows you to accept all cookies, be notified when a cookie is sent or reject all cookies. However, if you reject cookies, we may not be able to customize the content we show you or otherwise learn your preferences. There may also be services that require the use of cookies. This may negatively affect your site experience. In addition, although we do not plan to advertise, we may in the future place limited educational advertising on the site that originates from outside parties. In some cases, if you click on these materials, a cookie may be sent to your computer. We do not control these cookies.

Although no use of the Internet is 100% secure, the site uses security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of your information under our control. We do not always use industry-standard SSL (secure socket layer) encryption, which makes it difficult but not impossible for third parties to access information on the Site. In addition, your STP account information, if established, is password protected so only you have access to it. We recommend you not divulge your password to anyone, that you use a combination of letters and numbers in your password and that you change your password regularly.

We may change these policies from time to time. If any such changes materially and adversely affect the use of your information, we will generally refer to such changes on the site for a period of time, although our failure to do so will not affect the applicability of such changes. Accordingly, we recommend that you check back to review these policies from time to time, particularly if you have not visited the site for some time.
All copyright, trade and service marks, if any, are held by their respective owners. Prepayments by check or money order only; absolutely no refunds!
Thank you for accepting our invitation to use this website/email, and your permission for selected future communications. If unwanted, please email your reply with the word “cancel” to be removed from our list-serve.
