Privacy statement for Pediatrix Medical Group
Thank you for visiting our Pediatrix® and Mednax® websites (collectively, the “Websites”). We appreciate your interest in our products and services.
Your privacy is important to us, and we want you to feel comfortable visiting the Websites. Please review the following privacy statement for information about the Websites and how we collect, use and disclose personal information.
By using the Websites, you agree, without limitation or qualification, to be bound by the terms of this privacy statement and any other privacy or data-collection policy applicable to any portion of the Websites.
Please note that the Websites may contain links to other websites, and we cannot represent or guarantee that other websites’ privacy policies will conform to our own. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of each linked site you may choose to visit. These links are provided for your convenience. We neither approve nor endorse the information, products and advertisements contained in our linked websites.
- Information we collect and how we use it
We gather user information necessary to provide a better experience on the Websites, provide the services we believe will be of interest to our users and administer our business. When you visit the Websites, we may collect two types of information from you: “anonymous information” and “personally identifiable information.” Anonymous information refers to information that does not identify you or any other visitor to the Websites. Using computer “cookies,” we collect data, such as your IP address (e.g., whether you are logged on from a .com, .gov or .edu domain), referral data (e.g., the address of the last URL a user visited prior to clicking a link to Pediatrix.com) and browser and platform type (e.g., a Netscape browser on a Macintosh platform). This information is reviewed in aggregate to help us look for trends so we can improve the Websites and your experience. We also may collect aggregate search terms from referring search services for internal reporting and improvement of our search-engine placement. Additional information regarding computer cookies is described below.
Personally identifiable information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, email address, city, state, specialty or hospital affiliation. We may collect personally identifiable information through online forms located throughout the Websites. Personally identifiable information will only be collected to the extent that we deem it reasonably necessary to serve a legitimate business purpose. Such purposes include, but are not limited to, advertisement of career opportunities, tradeshow/exhibitor events, educational course offerings and professional-development awards for neonatal nurse practitioners and physicians, as well as the dissemination of peer-review features and Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) initiative updates.
This policy may be amended from time to time. Any changes will be posted on the Websites. While visiting the Websites, if you give us personally identifiable information to receive information or services from us, we will collect and store that data. We will not provide it to any third-party company without your permission. We do not automatically collect your personal email address simply because you visit the Websites.
If we partner with a third-party company to provide services and you request those services, we will share your name and other contact information as necessary for our partner to provide the requested services to you.
By using our Websites, you consent to the collection and use of your personally identifiable information as detailed in this notice.
Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by the browser on your hard drive. We may store some information on users’ computers in the form of a cookie or similar text file. The cookies that are configured by us do not contain any personally identifiable information, such as your name, or sensitive information, such as your credit card number. Since cookies are only text files, they cannot run on your computer, search your computer for other information or transmit any information to anyone. The cookies allow us to recognize you when you return to the Websites and provide you with a customized experience that we believe will be of value to you.
- Modification of your personally identifiable information
Upon request, you may review and correct the personally identifiable information that has been collected from you while using the Websites. This process may not, however, compromise the security, integrity and privacy of our proprietary databases or databases licensed from third parties. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We are committed to the use of recommended industry-standard security and data-protection products to protect your information from unauthorized third parties. When you submit personally identifiable information via the Websites, your information is kept in a secure environment both online and offline. Messages you send to us by email, however, may not be secure. If you choose to send any personally identifiable information to us via email, you accept the risk that a third party may intercept and use this information.
If you purchase products or services from us and choose to pay online with a credit card, we use recommended standard security and data-protection products to handle these transactions. None of your credit card information can be accessed or released without your consent, and all information is stored in a secure database behind a firewall.
- Public forums
The Websites may contain message boards, discussion groups and similar forums for users to post information. Please remember that any information disclosed in these areas becomes publicly available. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personally identifiable information in these areas. We do not maintain or routinely monitor information posted on any message board or discussion group on the Websites; however, we reserve the right to remove any postings that we deem inappropriate. We do not warrant the validity or accuracy of information posted by users of our websites.
- Protected health information (PHI)
Certain health information that you may provide us during your use of our websites is subject to our notice of privacy practices for PHI.
- Information regarding children
The Websites are not designed or intended to attract children under the age of 13. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we know is under the age of 13.
