Privacy Policy
   

Martech® is committed to protecting your privacy online. This statement discloses the methods of data collection that take place on this site and the uses of that data once it's collected. Should Martech® ever need to modify the privacy policy due to updates to the Web site or changes in the service, such modifications will be reflected on this Web page. Although significant modifications are not foreseen, you may want to read the privacy policy from time to time to ensure you have read the most recent version. Any modifications will continue to respect and safeguard your privacy while adjusting the policy to account for evolving features and services of the Web site.

Please be aware that external Web sites that are linked to from this site may or may not collect personally identifiable information about you once you have clicked through to those sites. This privacy statement does not cover the information practices of those Web sites. Neither does it cover the practices of sites that may have links pointing back to this one. Martech® encourages visitors to review the privacy policies of the Web sites they visit on a case-by-case basis, and to use "common sense practices" while using the Internet. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online. If you post personal information to a forum or message board that is accessible to the public, it's possible that your information could be obtained by malicious third parties. While Martech® strives to protect your personal information as it is stored on our computers, we cannot absolutely guarantee its security or the security of the information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. To help secure your data in transit over the Internet, you may want to use a secure connection. Martechmedical.com offers a secure connection with 128-bit SSL encryption that you are free to use at any time. To learn more about SSL & security on martechmedical.com, click here.

Anonymous Data Collection:

As with virtually every Web site on the Internet, the Web server that hosts martechmedical.com automatically collects and analyses traffic logs. These logs contain such anonymous data as the names of browsers that are used to connect to the site and the IP Addresses of the computers through which those connections are made. This data is used to track traffic patters into, out of, and through different parts of the site. Such information helps us to predict and supply visitors' interests and content needs more efficiently and effectively. This data does not contain any personally identifiable information about you.

What are cookies and how does Martech® use them?

A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a Web page or server and stored on your computer's hard drive. It is generally impossible for any Web site to read the cookie other than the one that served it to you in the first place. In other words, if the next site you visit is microsoft.com, Microsoft will NOT be able to read the cookie you got from martechmedical.com. Cookies are perfectly safe and private, and cannot be used to run any programs or to deliver any viruses to your computer. Cookies are an industry standard tool, and you'll find they are used by most Web sites. Martech® uses cookies to identify logged-in members of the site and to connect Web site visitors to the information (stored on our computers) that they have submitted using forms. Cookies may also contain the url of the last page on the site you most recently visited. A Martech® cookie is set or modified when you enter the site, register for membership, log into the members section, or submit other form data. Cookies are modified or expired when you log out. Martech® cookies will expire (become unreadable by the Web server) after a specific amount of time. Because a cookie is used to determine if you are logged in, you will not be able to stay logged in or use other features of this Web site unless your browser is configured to accept cookies. Most browsers accept cookies by default, but if you have disabled that feature for some reason you may want to re-enable it while you're using this site. For information on how to enable cookies in your browser, click here. Martech® cookies don't contain any personally identifiable information about you.

Personally Identifiable Information:

Martech® collects personally identifiable information in several ways from different parts of our Web site. Mailing list registration only requires a valid email address. Partial membership registration only requires a name and email address. Additional personal information required for full registration includes your full name and your company's name, phone number & mailing address. A user name & password must be chosen for either type of membership registration. Similar contact information is collected from non-members before downloading product literature in PDF format. Contact information is also collected in surveys, contact and feedback forms, and so on, although it is not always required. Once you enter any of the above described personal information, you may no longer be anonymous to Martech®. Usage logs are kept of visitors' activities in certain areas of the Web site and are linked to personal information files whenever possible. Data from email newsletters (responses, click-throughs, and open rates) are treated likewise. This is done in an effort to measure the number of individuals using the Web site or being reached through the use of it, to measure the needs and interests of customers and site visitors, and to create a general demographic profile of the customer base that Martech® serves online.

Disclosure:

No personal information is ever made public on the Web site. Personal information that you enter on this site is collected and stored by Martech® alone. When someone registers as a full member or downloads product information and elects to be contacted by a Martech® representative, then their information may be shown to a qualified salesperson who works directly for Martech®. Information is stored on our computers in the strict confidence of a few specially authorized Martech® employees and is never sold, rented, or disclosed in any form to any third party. We do NOT share, sell, or rent our mailing list.

Martech® must reserve the right to disclose any amount of collected information, without notice, in the unlikely event that we are required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on our company or Web site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Martech®, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our Web site or the public, (d) for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.

Your choices regarding data collection and storage:

You may edit your current membership registration information at any time after logging into the site. You may also delete your current registration at any time. If you choose to change your user name or delete your current registration, someone else will be able to register with your old user name. Archived versions of member registrations are kept for the sake of historical data and to analyze site usage statistics over time. You should understand that the data you change or delete from your membership registration does not actually disappear from computer memory, although this privacy policy will still apply to that data.

You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those Martech® services that require cookies in order to participate. You can still experience many features on the Martech® site even if you do not accept cookies.
