The Information MMP Collects
Anonymous Electronic Information. In general, you can browse the Site without telling MMP who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. MMP, however, collects your computer’s or mobile device’s IP address, which you necessarily disclose when you visit the Site or download or use an App so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to your computer or mobile device. The Site or Apps may utilize "cookies," which are anonymous, unique identifiers that web pages on the Site may use to store data on your computer or mobile device or send data to our web server. MMP may use cookie data to "recognize" you when you visit the Site or use the App in the future, to troubleshoot how the Site or Apps operates, and for internal analysis of how people use the Site or Apps. Should you decide not to accept cookies from the Site or Apps, you will limit the functionality MMP can provide you.
Participating in Activities. When you engage in certain activities on the Site or App, such as registering as a user of the Apps or sending MMP a message using the Site, MMP may ask you to provide personal and other information. In order to engage in such activities you will be required to provide information that lets MMP know the specifics of who you are or where you are, and may include, without limitation, your name, email address, age, gender, zip code, ethnicity, and other personal information and if you are a healthcare provider, your NPI number. If you choose to share any personal information with MMP, you will see that the amount and type of personal information MMP requests depends on how you use the Site or Apps. Depending upon the activity, some of the information MMP asks you to provide is identified as mandatory and some is voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
The Way MMP Uses Information Collected on the Site and the Apps
MMP may use your IP address to, among other things: (a) help diagnose problems with the Site or Apps, administer and improve the Site or Apps, and measure the use of the Site or Apps; (b) identify the type of web browsers used, the pages viewed, the web sites from which a visitor found the Site or Apps, and the search terms and search engines used to find the Site or Apps; and (c) gather other web analytics information relating to visitors’ use and navigation of the Site or Apps. This information does not identify you personally. On occasion MMP may aggregate this data with data from other users to track overall visitor traffic patterns and provide this aggregate information to vendors, business partners, or other parties to demonstrate the amount of interest in the Site and Apps and to help MMP plan for technical infrastructure requirements.
MMP may use and share aggregate information with vendors, potential advertisers, business partners, or other third parties. Aggregate information does not include personal information.
MMP may disclose personal information in any of the following circumstances: (a) in response to a subpoena, search warrant, court order, or other legal process or request, or as may otherwise be required by applicable law or regulation; (b) to protect and defend MMP’s rights or property or those of its affiliates or business partners, or others; or (c) as MMP, in its sole discretion, believes is appropriate under exigent circumstances in response to a perceived threat to the personal safety, property, or rights of any person or organization.
In addition, since MMP’s database is a business asset, in the event MMP is reorganized or becomes part of another organization, you consent to the sale, assignment, or transfer of your personal information to a successor that acquires substantially all of the business assets of MMP, or to an affiliate, as applicable.
MMP’s Relationship to Other Sites that can be Accessed Through the Site or Apps
Security of Your Personal Information
MMP takes what it believes to be reasonable precautions and has implemented certain safeguards to protect the security of data and information. However, MMP cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, or alteration or destruction of data or personal information. While MMP strives to protect your personal information, MMP cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to or from the Site or Apps, by email or otherwise, and you provide such information at your own risk. You acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations in computer systems and on the Internet which are beyond the control of MMP; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and MMP through the Site or Apps, including personal information, cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with by a third party while such information or data is being used, transmitted, processed, or stored.
