Collection of Information

NAPPM gathers user information needed to provide a better experience on our site, to provide the services we believe to be of interest to our users and to administer our business. When you visit NAPPM’s site, NAPPM may collect two types of information.

Personally Identifiable Information: NAPPM may ask that you provide personally identifiable information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), country of residence, e-mail address, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personally identifying information (collectively, “Personal Information”). By submitting Personal Information to NAPPM, you agree and acknowledge that such Personal Information may be transferred across national boundaries. You also acknowledge that in certain countries or with respect to certain activities, the collection, transfer, storage, and processing of your Personal Information may be undertaken by third parties. If you do not want your Personal Information collected and stored, do not submit it to NAPPM.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information: There is information about your computer and hardware and software that is automatically collected by NAPPM through this website. This non-personally identifiable information by itself cannot be used to identify or contact you. This information may include your Internet browser or the computer operating system you use, your IP address (including the general geography of your IP address), the date and time you visited this website, the pages you accessed, and the name of the website from which you linked to this website. We collect this data through the use of computer “cookies” (described below). This non-personally identifiable information may be used by NAPPM for demographic purposes, analysis of trends, interests and needs, marketing and to improve and enhance this website. NAPPM reserves the right to use and/or disclose such non-personally identifiable information in any manner.

“Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by the browser on your computer’s hard drive. NAPPM 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 or transmit any information to anyone. The cookies allow us to recognize you when you return to our site and provide you with a customized experience that we hope will be of value to you.   Most browsers are set up to accept cookies. If you reset your browser to refuse cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of a personalized experience at our site.

Please note that, if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally-sensitive data through NAPPM’s public message board of forums, this information may be collected and used by others.

How Your Personal Information Is Used

NAPPM collects your Personal Information in order to record, support and facilitate services provided in this website. Such information may include, but is not limited to, information relating to hospital anesthesia services, ambulatory anesthesia services, office-based anesthesia or other services that may or may not be provided by NAPPM. NAPPM respects your privacy and as such does not sell or lease to third parties, in any manner, any lists that it collects.

There are other instances in which NAPPM may divulge your Personal Information, such as where required by law, rule or regulation, or where NAPPM has a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to comply with a court order, if requested by a governmental or law enforcement authority, as part of a legal process, or otherwise to protect NAPPM’s rights. NAPPM may also disclose Personal Information about you in a determination made solely by NAPPM that such disclosure should be made for reasons of national security, law enforcement or other issues of public importance.

NAPPM may communicate information to you regarding products, services and offers available from NAPPM or selected third parties.

Your Choices With Respect to Personal Information

NAPPM recognizes and appreciates the importance of responsible use of Personal Information collected, such as in connection with providing services and information. NAPPM respects your legal rights regarding access to, and correction and deletion of, your Personal Information. Access by you to your Personal Information may be provided upon request, subject to NAPPM’s sole and exclusive granting of such request. NAPPM expressly reserves the right to deny any request for your Personal Information for any purpose.

Protection of Your Personal Information

The Personal Information that you provide in connection with this website is protected in several ways. Your Personal Information resides on secure servers to which only selected NAPPM personnel, agents and contractors have access by password. NAPPM strives to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such Personal Information when it is transmitted to, and stored by, NAPPM. It is not possible, however, for NAPPM to guarantee the security of information disclosed online to NAPPM because no transmission of data over the Internet is totally secure and no database is totally secure from hackers, rogue employees and the like. Personal Information may also be released, erased, deleted or otherwise removed due to hacking, force majeure, accident, unscrupulous contractors or employees, or through other such factors, and NAPPM disclaims liability for any of the foregoing. You agree to assume all risk in connection with the information provided to NAPPM or collected by NAPPM when using this website.

If your credit card number is transmitted to other websites for processing requested by you, that information is protected under the data security standards of those websites.
