Information Collection

 

BioPharm may ask that you voluntarily provide your personal information to us in order to receive medically relevant, healthcare-related information. We collect this information in a number of different ways including online registration, business reply cards, or through a call center. We may also supplement your data using information from third parties in order to verify the information and maximize the accuracy of our database.

In addition, to measure the success and interest level in specific program offerings, we may track your participation in these programs. Examples of things we measure include whether or not you open an e-mail we send you, whether you click through to view additional information, whether you return a business reply card, or whether you view an online video presentation we send you.

In addition, we collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit any BioPharm Web site. Below, our policies regarding the type of information we collect on our Web sites is summarized.

Information Protection

 

BioPharm has implemented physical, technological, and managerial policies to protect the personal information we have under our control from unauthorized access and/or improper use. Only employees who have a job-related need to use the data will be granted access, which will require a correct username and password to authenticate the user.

BioPharm may also contract with other companies and individuals to assist us with the services we provide. For example, some of our Professional Sites may be hosted on another company's server, we may utilize technical consultants to help manage our online properties, or we might work with companies to remove duplicate records from customer lists. In order to provide their services, these companies may have limited access to some of the personally identifiable information we maintain. We require all of these companies to comply with the terms of the BioPharm Privacy Policy, to limit their access to any personal information to the minimum necessary to perform their specific tasks, and not to use the information for any purpose other than fulfilling their responsibilities to us.
