MSHP Website Privacy Statement

The Maine Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists (sometimes referred to as “MSHP,” “we”, “us”, or “our”) takes your privacy seriously. This Privacy Statement discloses our information collection and dissemination practices.

Our Service

MSHP provides visitors to our web site with access to society news and information, employment postings, and event registration.

Privacy Protections and Use of Information
We will not disclose or share personally identifiable information collected on our web site with any third party (except as required by law or pursuant to a governmental request).

Aggregate Data.

We may share reports with third parties based on aggregated data of our Members (“Aggregated Member Data”). Aggregated Member Data does not include any personally identifiable information. For example, these reports will not include your personal or organization name. Information about Members is aggregated for the purposes of determining successful event benchmarks and other similar activities.

Event Registration.

When you register for an event via a link on our site, you have granted us permission to release the information you entered to the event planners.

Special Circumstances.

We may disclose personal information 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 other MSHP users or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities.

Cookies.

A cookie is a small data file that some web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie may contain information like a user ID that allows the site to track which web pages you have visited. The only personal information a cookie contains is information you decide to supply. A cookie cannot read data from your hard drive or cookie files created by other web sites.

IP Addresses.

We may use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers and administer our web site.

eCommerce

If you are registering for a paid event, we may request payment information to conclude the transaction as well as your mailing address or other contact information to ensure authentication and proper delivery. We use industry-standard secure socket layer (SSL) encryption. We do not sell or rent your personal financial information.

When you engage in an eCommerce transaction on our site using a credit card, your credit card information, including the number and expiration date and your billing addresses, is passed only to MSHP. Your credit card information is stored in the system just long enough to fully process your transaction. After the transaction has completed, your credit card information is removed from our system for security reasons.

You can decline to provide credit card information and any other information at our site at anytime. If you should choose to withhold requested information; however, we may not be able to provide you with the full spectrum of our services.

If you require a refund, please contact us.

MSHP Listserv

MSHP makes a listserv available to its members. Although only viewable by MSHP members, please remember that any information disclosed in these areas becomes public information, and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. The listserv may be monitored for content by us.

Web Site Links

Our site contains links to other web sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these web sites.

Security Procedures

This site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of information under our control. We protect secure data with industry-standard firewall and password protection systems. We periodically review and improve our security and privacy policies as necessary. We only allow pre-authorized individuals access to our servers and to information provided by our Members.

Corrections and Updates

To change or modify information you previously provided, email us.

Please note that no data transmission over the Internet is infallible. Any information you transmit through our site is done at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we will take every reasonable precaution to ensure its security on our systems.

Notification of Changes
