Browser type, IP address, access time, and files accessed are collected in log files. MSOS uses this information to analyze traffic on the site and then discards the log files. Aggregate information generated from the log files is sometimes shared with advertisers.
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
The site collects personally identifiable information at the following locations: MSOS Membership, Change of Personal Information Form for MSOS Members, MSOS Shopping Cart, and Listserv sign-up. The information collected may include name, title, home address, business address, practice demographics, e-mail, and credit card number (when a purchase is made). We use customer contact information from the forms to send orders, email news services, newsletters, and event announcements. A credit card processing company is used to process credit card transactions. The credit card information is used only for billing purposes. The nonfinancial information we collect is sometimes shared with other reputable organizations to help them contact consumers for marketing purposes. Users may choose to decline receiving future mailings; please see the "Opting Out" section below. Aggregated demographic information may also be compiled and shared, but does not identify the individual user.
This site contains links to other sites. MSOS is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other Web sites. Please read the privacy statements of the sites to which we link as their privacy practices may differ from www.medsafetyofficer.org.
Personally identifiable information is optional in our online surveys and would be used only to contact somebody to clarify an answer. Demographic and profile data that are collected are analyzed and shared with advertisers on an aggregate basis.
Throughout this site, users are provided the opportunity to communicate with MSOS via e-mail. We read every message and try to reply promptly to every one.

PUBLIC FORUMS, BLOGS, AND LISTSERV
This site makes discussion threads and listserv subscriptions available to its users.
