Our Commitment to Privacy
What We Will Not Do
We will not provide your personally identifiable responses to any market research survey question or educational program request for information to any third party, other than as expressly set forth below, unless such question or request is expressly identified. For instance, we may ask you at the end of an educational program if you wish to receive additional information on the topic presented or samples of a drug mentioned. Typically, we would forward such requests for information to a third party, such as a pharmaceutical company, for fulfillment.
We may provide your personally identifiable information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as mailing and verifying medical education numbers/DEA numbers. These companies are authorized to use your personally identifiable information only as necessary to provide these services to us.
ImpactNetwork will comply with all applicable laws, such as comply with a subpoena, bankruptcy proceedings or similar legal process, rules, regulations, and orders of any court or government administrative body. Such compliance may require the disclosure of your personally identifiable information, responses and requests. We may also disclose personally identifiable information when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others or investigate fraud. ImpactNetwork will use reasonable efforts, as appropriate, to avoid or minimize any public disclosure.
The Information We Collect
Personally Identifiable Information: We may collect a variety of personally identifiable information, including but not limited to: name, email address, mailing address, medical degree, practice description, DEA number, state license number and medical specialties. We do not collect geo location data through our mobile app. When you download and use our services, we automatically collect information on the type of device you use, operating system version, and the device identifier (or "UDID"). We may send you push notifications through our mobile app to send you service related notifications that may be of importance to you. You may at any time opt-out from receiving these types of communications by turning them off at the device level through your settings.

Aggregated Demographic Data: Should you choose to participate in market research surveys or educational presentations, we may collect information on your practice characteristics, diagnostic methods, treatment methods, use of and attitudes towards pharmaceutical products, your managed care affiliations, and other standard research data necessary to categorize your practice and report your opinions. This data is collected, analyzed and protected in accordance with standards established by CASRO (Council of American Survey Research Organizations).
