Use of Cookies
Cookies are a technology we use to keep track of users as they move through our websites. Your browser allows us to place some information on your computer's hard drive that is associated with the computer you are using. We use cookies to personalize our Websites and to track your usage across all our websites. Your web browser can be set to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies, reject cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is sent to you. If your browser is set to reject cookies, websites that are cookie-enabled will not recognize you when you return to the Website, and some Website functionality may be lost. The Help section of your browser will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies.

Although cookies do not normally contain personally identifiable information, if you are a registered user, we may elect to associate your registration information with cookies our website places on your computer's hard drive. Associating a cookie with your registration data allows us to offer increased personalization and functionality. For example, you can elect to have our websites "remember" your Username and Password and bypass the sign-in process on each visit to the site. Without cookies, this functionality would not be possible. Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers.) We have told them that we do not want them to use cookie information to track our users' activities once they leave our websites. However, because of the way advertisements are served on our websites, we do not have total control over how advertisers use cookies on our website. If you believe that one of our advertisers is placing an unwanted cookie on your hard drive, please contact privacy officer (privacy@presentelearning.com ) to assist us in resolving the problem.

Uses We Make of Information
In this section of our Privacy Policy, we identify the ways we may use information about you that we have collected.

Sharing User Data
We collect data about visitors to our website for product development and improvement activities. We also use it for market analysis. We may provide information from our websites with identifying information included, to third parties.

Marketing and Advertising
We may target our advertising or marketing depending on information we have about you. For example, a user that is a healthcare professional who treats foot conditions may receive advertising for new podiatry therapies (although in some cases the advertiser may be provided identifiable information about you). We may also personalize our Website based on your interests. For example, you may see different articles in different places on our Website based on information you have shared with us, or information we have gained by observing your previous behavior, or information we may have gained from your interactions with a third party that shares information with us. We use information for our own internal marketing, research, and related purposes. Third Parties in addition to aggregate information (discussed previously), we may share some kinds of personally identifiable information with third parties as described below and previously above under Who You Will Receive Email From.

Other Companies
We have strategic relationships with other companies who offer products and services on our Websites. When you are interacting with those companies, different rules and privacy policies may apply. We do not control the collection or use of information you provide to these companies, but we do require that those companies clearly state their policies so you can decide whether to give them any information.

Our Employees and Consultants
We contract with other companies and individuals to help us provide services. For example, we may host some of our Websites on another company's computers, hire technical consultants to maintain our Web-based tools, or work with companies to remove repetitive information from customer lists, analyze data, provide marketing assistance, and provide customer service. In addition, if you are a healthcare professional, we may validate your licensure status and other information against available databases that list licensed health care professionals. To perform their jobs, these other companies may have limited access to some of the personal information we maintain about our users. We require all such companies to comply with the terms of our Privacy Policy, to limit their access to any personal information to the minimum necessary to perform their obligations, and not to use the information they may access for purposes other than fulfilling their responsibilities to us. We use our best efforts to limit the use of other companies in areas where personally identifiable information may be involved.

Promotional Offers
Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of users on behalf of other businesses. We provide a variety of mechanisms for users to tell us that they do not want to receive such promotional offers. For example, we always endeavor to provide an opt-out selection for users in these promotional messages.

Protection of Information
In this section of our Privacy Policy, we discuss the security measures we take to protect information that we have collected about you.

We have implemented technology and security policies, rules, and other measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from unauthorized access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction, and accidental loss. We also protect your information by requiring that all our employees and others who have access to or are associated with the processing of your data respect your confidentiality. We use security methods to determine the identity of its registered users, so that appropriate rights and restrictions can be enforced for that user. Reliable verification of user identity is called authentication. We use both passwords and usernames, as well as double opt-n verification, to authenticate users. Users are responsible for maintaining their own passwords.

Access to Information and Choices
In this section of our Privacy Policy, we tell you how to obtain and correct information we have about you, and how to choose what types of information you may share with us.

Correction of Information We Have About You

You may contact Web Customer Support and ask for the changes that you would like to make.

Our Employees
Our employees are required to keep customer information private, as a condition of their employment with the company. Only selected, authorized employees are permitted to access personal information. Our employees with access to personally identifiable information are required to attend a confidentiality/privacy training class, and to sign a confidentiality agreement.
