Active Information Collection
Like many Web sites, this site actively collects information
from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and
by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail,
feedback forms, and/or chat rooms. Some of the information
that you submit may be personally identifiable information
(that is, information that can be uniquely identified with
you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone
number, and so on).
Some areas of this site may require you to submit information
in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such
as live or on-demand Webcasts) or to participate in a particular
activity (such as providing feedback or CME testing). You
will be informed at each information collection point what
information is required and what information is optional.
At registration you will be given the option of receiving recurring informational/promotional newsletters via email from OR-Live and/or directly from third parties. These emails will not contain Personal Health Information. At the time you sign up for our email newsletters or any time thereafter, you can choose to Opt-In to receive additional promotional emails from OR-Live.
In order to subscribe to such newsletters via email, we need your contact information, such as name and email address. OR-Live may send you informational announcements of future scheduled webcasts. You can unsubscribe from the newsletters by simply clicking on the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of any email newsletter.
Physicians who are participating in OR-Live’s physician finder will receive informational announcements of future scheduled webcasts.
Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through a Web site, certain information can
be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively
providing the information) using various technologies and
means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet
tags, and navigational data collection (e.g., the page from
which you accessed our site).
This site may collect Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An
IP Address is a unique number assigned to your computer by
your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet.
We use this IP address to diagnose problems with our server,
report aggregate information (e.g., how many site visitors
have we had during a Webcast), determine the fastest route
for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and administer
and improve the site.
A "cookie" is a small text file that a Web server
sends to your PC, which helps the site retain information
about you and your preferences, so that you do not have to
manually reenter these when you return to our site (e.g.,
you can avoid having to reenter your email address each time
you want to view a Webcast).
"Session" cookies are temporary cookies that are
erased once you exit your Web browser window or otherwise
turn your computer off. Session cookies are used to lend continuity
to navigating our site and to collect aggregate statistical
information. This site uses session cookies.
"Navigational data" ("log files," "server
logs," and "clickstream" data) are used for
system management, to improve the content of the site, for
market research purposes, and to communicate information to
visitors. This site uses navigational data.
As a service, OR-Live may feature message boards, chat rooms and other public forums offering online discussions moderated by medical or healthcare experts.
Any information shared (including Personally Identifiable and Personal Health Information) that you reveal in a chat room or message board, is by design open to the public and is not a private, secure service. You should think carefully before disclosing any Personally Identifiable or Personal Health Information in any public forum. What you have written may be seen, disclosed to or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways we are unable to control or predict, including to contact you for unauthorized purposes.
