Privacy Policy and Terms of Use

Updated May 24, 2018

 

Pearson Health Tech Insights, LLC (PHTI) takes your privacy seriously.  Notice of all changes that materially affect ways in which your personally identifiable data may be used or shared will be posted in updates to this Privacy Policy.  By continuing to receive our emails on or after May 25, 2018, you acknowledge and agree to our Privacy Policy.

 

Information We Collect

·         In order to communicate with clients and other interested parties, PHTI collects contacts’ name, email address and employer name.  This information is used only for outbound email communications either sent directly by PHTI staff or affiliates or as processed by our email service company, currently Constant Contact.  Constant Contact tracks user interaction and reports who has opened email communications and which links in our communication they have accessed.

·         We maintain a contact directory which may include name, email addresses, mailing addresses, zip codes, and phone numbers. 

 

How We Use Your Information

Information you provide for use for a certain reason will be used in connection with the reason for which it was provided.  For instance, if you contact us by email, we will use the information you provide to respond to your question or issue.  We may use your contact information to provide educational information, inform you of products or services we offer, or inform you about events that may be of interest to you.  All outbound email communication sent via Constant Contact includes information about how you may “opt-out” or unsubscribe.  If at any time you wish not to receive any future communication or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us.

 

Where Information is Processed

PHTI is based in the United States.  No matter where you are located, you consent to the processing and transferring of your information in and to the United States and other countries.  The laws of the U.S. and other countries governing data collection and use may not be as comprehensive or protective as the laws of the country where you live.

 

Disclosure of Your Information

PHTI does not sell your information.  There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your information with certain third parties, as set forth below:

·         Consent – We may transfer your information with your consent.

·         Affiliates – We may also share your information with our affiliates for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.

·         Agents, Consultants, and Related Third Parties – Like many organizations, we sometimes hire other companies or individuals to perform certain mission-related functions.  Examples of sch functions include mailing information and maintaining data bases. 

·         Legal Requirements – We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of PHTI or its affiliates, (iii) protect the personal safety of users of our websites or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.

 

Links to Other Sites

This Privacy Policy applies only to PHTI websites. PHTI websites may contain links to other websites not operated or controlled by us. The policies and procedures described in this Privacy Policy do not apply to aforementioned sites. The links from PHTI websites do not imply that we endorse or have reviewed the aforementioned sites.

 

Data Retention

We generally retain personal data for so long as it may be relevant to the purposes identified herein. To dispose of personal data, we may delete it or take other appropriate steps. Data may persist in copies made for backup and mission continuity purposes for additional time.

 

Security

PHTI understands the need for user privacy and access to user data is strictly limited and can only be accessed by specific individuals who have the necessary credentials and qualifications. We take reasonable steps to protect the information provided to us from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any information via the Internet.

 

Your Data Rights

You can unsubscribe from certain emails by clicking the “unsubscribe” link they contain. Individuals in the European Economic Area, Canada, Costa Rica and some other jurisdictions outside the United States have certain legal rights to obtain confirmation of whether we hold personal data about them, to access personal data we hold about them, and to obtain its correction, update, amendment, or deletion in appropriate circumstances. They may also object to our uses or disclosures of personal data, to request a restriction on its processing, or withdraw any consent, though such actions typically will not have retroactive effect. They also will not affect our ability to continue processing data in lawful ways.

·         How can I access the personal data you have about me? – If you would like to submit a data access request, you can do so via an email request.  We will then start the process by confirming your identity and then provide you with an email containing the personal data that PHTI has on you within 30 days.

·         How do I correct, update, amend, or delete the personal data you have about me? – You can also request modifications from us via email. Please write us at glenn@pearsonhti.com. Your continued use of PHTI websites after any changes or revisions to this Privacy Policy shall indicate your agreement with the terms of said revised Privacy Policy.

·         How do I object or restrict the manner in which PHTI processes my personal data? – You have a right to ask us to stop using or limit our use of your personal data in certain circumstances—for example, if we have no lawful basis to keep using your data, or if you think your personal data is inaccurate. Individuals in the European Economic Area have the right to opt out of all of our processing of their personal data for direct marketing purposes. To exercise this right, please contact us via email. You may also click the “unsubscribe” link in any of our marketing emails. The rights and options described above are subject to limitations and exceptions under applicable law. In addition to those rights, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority. However, we encourage you to contact us first, and we will do our very best to resolve your concern.
