2. Use of Personal Data Collected
Personal data collected by the Pharmaceutical Press may be used by the Pharmaceutical Press for editorial and feedback purposes, for marketing and promotional purposes, for statistical analysis of users' behaviour, for product development, for content improvement, to inform advertisers as to how many visitors have seen or clicked on their advertisements, or to customise the content and layout of the Pharmaceutical Press Web site.

Aggregate data on home server domain names, operating system, and type of Web browser may be used for internal purposes.

Individually identifying information, such as names, postal and e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and other personal information which visitors voluntarily provide to Pharmaceutical Press may be added to the Pharmaceutical Press databases and used for future calls and mailings regarding site updates, new products and services, upcoming events, and status of orders placed online.

3. Disclosure of Personal Data to Third Parties

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

5. Security Measures
Pharmaceutical Press has implemented numerous security features to prevent the unauthorised release of or access to personal information. In particular, when a visitor places an order on this site a secure server is used. Our secure server encrypts all payment information a visitor inputs before it is sent to Pharmaceutical Press, and is also used to store personal information securely. Please be advised, however, that while Pharmaceutical Press has endeavoured to create a completely secure Web site, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from Pharmaceutical Press via this site or e-mail cannot be guaranteed. Accordingly, Pharmaceutical Press is not responsible for the security of information transmitted via the Internet.

All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our finance department or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

Upon request via postal mail, e-mail, or phone, Pharmaceutical Press will provide to visitors a summary of any personal information retained by Pharmaceutical Press regarding the visitor. Visitors may modify, correct, change or update their personal record or cause their personal record to be removed from the Pharmaceutical Press database. Please note, Pharmaceutical Press will only send personal records to the e-mail address on file for the visitor name associated with it.
