We are committed to protecting your privacy.
If you visit our websites from a country other than the United States, your communications will likely result in the transfer of your personal data across national borders. If you provide us with your personal data when visiting one of our websites from outside of the United States, you acknowledge and agree that this data may be transferred from your then-current location to our offices and servers and to those of our affiliates, agents, and service providers located in the United States and in other countries. The United States and such other countries may not have the same level of data protection as those that apply in the jurisdiction where you live.
Under California law, once a year, DiMe members who are California residents may request certain information about our disclosure of your personal information to unaffiliated third parties for direct marketing purposes. To request your personal information under California law, please contact us via one of the following methods, using “California Privacy Rights” as the heading: by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail at Digital Medicine Society, Inc., 90 Canal St., 4th Floor, Boston, MA, 02114.
DiMe automatically records the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of visitors. The IP address is a unique number assigned to every computer on the internet. Generally, an IP address changes each time you connect to the internet (it is a “dynamic” address). Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, the IP address that we collect may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because, with some broadband connections, your IP address doesn’t change (it is “static”) and could be associated with your personal computer.
We keep track of the pages visited on DiMe’s website, the amount of time spent on those pages and the types of searches done on them. Your searches remain confidential and anonymous. DiMe uses this information only for statistical purposes to find out which pages users find most useful and to improve the website.
DiMe may capture and store information that you transmit. This may include:
Cookies and web beacons are electronic placeholders that are placed on your device by websites to track your individual movements on that website over time. DiMe uses both session-based cookies (which last only for the duration of the user’s session) and persistent cookies (which remain on your device and provides information about the session you are in and waits for the next time you use that site again).
These cookies and web beacons provide useful information to DiMe, enabling us to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user’s access to and use of our sites, allows us to track usage behavior, and to balance the usage of our websites on all DiMe web servers.
Tracking cookies, third-party cookies, and other technologies such as web beacons may be used to process additional information, enable non-core functionalities on the DiMe website and enable third-party functions (such as a social media “share” link). We may also include web beacons and other similar technology in promotional email messages to determine whether the messages have been opened.
