Privacy policy

At Canadian Healthcare Technology we understand that privacy is one of the biggest concerns for Internet users. Canadian Healthcare Technology respects the privacy of every person who visits our Web site or uses our products. We've created this statement to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy and to show the value we place on the information you provide to us.

WHAT CANADIAN HEALTHCARE TECHNOLOGY DOES

Canadian Healthcare Technology is a communications company that provides news and analysis about the use of computers and information technology in the healthcare sector. It does this via a magazine that is published 8 times per year; an online web site; twice-monthly e-newsletters, and occasional market studies.

Links to Other Web Sites
Canadian Healthcare Technology Web sites contain links to other sites. Canadian Healthcare Technology is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these sites. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of these linked sites, as their policies may differ from our own.

ABOUT INFORMATION YOU VOLUNTEER

In various places on our Web sites, we may request information from you. This might include your name, email address, other contact info, and demographic data such as your occupation. We use this information to:

send you an electronic newsletter,

alert you about new products or product updates,

provide you with information you have requested about the company or about our products,

collect survey data to improve our products and services,

send you or a colleague an email you've requested,

send you an email confirming a subscription or download,

classify our users and correspondents into demographic categories so that we can better track the issues, concerns and preferences of those groups and, ultimately, deliver products and services that more accurately meet their needs. We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law. When you volunteer information that may be shared with our partners, we will ask you explicitly to grant us such permission by opting in on a Web page.

For visitors to our site who are under 18 years of age we strongly recommend that you obtain the permission of a parent or guardian before providing us with any information.

Send a Friend a Message
Canadian Healthcare Technology provides facilities for you to send a friend an email message. We use the email addresses you enter to send the requested email, and we track the number of emails sent, but we do not use the email addresses for any other purpose.

Surveys
Periodically, we run surveys, the results of which are published in the magazine and/or as separate studies. Participation in these is entirely voluntary, and you have a choice whether or not you disclose the requested information. Information requested is aggregated and used by Canadian Healthcare Technology to improve the understanding of IT usage in the hospital and healthcare sector

Opting Out
When you subscribe to a Canadian Healthcare Technology newsletter, we provide simple instructions, in each newsletter, on how you can cancel your subscription.

Each message deployed by Canadian Healthcare Technology contains instructions on how you can opt out of future communications, either via email or through a Web page.

ABOUT INFORMATION WE COLLECT AUTOMATICALLY

Technical and Demographic Information
Canadian Healthcare Technology collects technical and demographic information about you that does not personally identify you. Examples of this type of information include the computer operating system you use, your Internet browser, your domain name and IP address, and the Web pages you view. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

We use this information to diagnose problems with our Web site and to better tailor its content to your needs.

How We Use Cookies
A cookie is a small text file placed on your computer that uniquely identifies you. It tells our Web server when you return to a page you've already visited. We use cookies in several places:

When you download our software, we use a cookie to save the information you enter. If you return to the same page later, we can fill in your email address, so you don't have to re-enter it.

When we send you an email with a link to a Web page, we use a cookie to automatically enter your email address on a Web page form, so you don't have to type it.

Open Rates and Clicks
Canadian Healthcare Technology sends email and tracks the open rates of the HTML version of these messages. This allows us to improve the quality of the messages we send. Canadian Healthcare Technology cannot track open rates on plain text messages.

Canadian Healthcare Technology may also track clicks on Web site links included in the messages.

We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and clients. This is not linked to personal information that can identify any individual person.

HOW YOU CAN CHANGE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDED
