MCM Education, owner and operator of CMEcorner.com has always been committed to customer service and we intend to continue that tradition by providing a private and secure experience at CMEcorner.com. The following Privacy Policy will help you to understand how we will treat your personal information. As we continue to improve our site and as we take advantage of developments in technology, this policy may change from time to time so please check back on an ongoing basis for revisions and updates.

What personally identifiable information does MCM Education collect from me?

MCM Education collects information from our website in several ways. During registration, we ask for information such as your name, email address, and zip code. Once you have submitted this information and chosen a valid password, you will be able to take full advantage of everything we have to offer. You may also be asked for personal information when you report a problem with our site, register for contests, or if you otherwise contact us. Of course, we will require shipping information, when you wish to obtain products from our website. MCM Education, Inc. DOES NOT INTENTIONALLY COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13.

How does MCM Education use my information?

Our primary purpose for collecting and using personal information is to improve our website and to provide you with an experience on our web site that is tailored to your preferences. The more we know about you, the better equipped we are to provide you with the service, selection and content that is expected of us.

Who is collecting the information and with whom is it being shared?

When you are on CMEcorner.com and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with only CMEcorner.com, its agents and representatives. We will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your express permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. MCM Education may also disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) MCM Education, Inc.'s rights or property, other CMEcorner.com users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. MCM Education, Inc. may disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, 45% of our users are female) to others, but none of these statistics will contain personally identifiable information about our customers and their shopping habits.

What are my choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of my information?

If you indicated upon registration that you are interested in receiving offers or information from Medical Communications Media, Inc. and its affiliates, we may occasionally send you e-mail about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. Only MCM Education (or agents or representatives working on behalf of MCM Education) will send you these e-mails and only if you indicated that you wish to receive these offers. If you choose to stop receiving these mailings, you can, at any time, simply send an email to mcm@mcmedu.com and request to be removed from our mailing list, or you can update your user profile and indicate that you do not wish to be contacted.

What are "cookies" and how does MCM Education use them?

A "cookie" is a small file stored by your web browser on your computer's hard drive for future reference. CMEcorner.com uses "cookies" to compile information about our customers' use of our site so that we may improve your shopping experience at CMEcorner.com. We cannot and will not use cookies to retrieve any personal information about you unless you have previously registered with CMEcorner.com. We do not and cannot use cookies to retrieve personal information about you from your computer unless you knowingly and willingly provided such information. Even though most Web browsers accept "cookies", most browsers also give you the option to reject "cookies". Please note that although you may set your browser to reject "cookies", you will still be able to visit the CMEcorner.com site; however, your shopping and browsing experience will be affected.

What is MCM Educationís policy on allowing me to update or correct my account information?

You may edit your Registration Information at any time by using your CMEcorner.com username and password.

What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of my information?

We at MCM Education are aware that you may be concerned about the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information. We have taken steps to ensure that this information is well protected. Your User Information is protected by a password chosen by you and access to that User Information requires your username and password; therefore, we recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. MCM Education will not ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. While we strive to protect your personal information, MCM Education† cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online that information can be collected and used by others. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
