We refer to our Websites and Applications cumulatively as our “Platforms”.

This Policy applies to any information that we collect on our Platforms, including any information in any emails, posts, texts and other electronic messages between you and the Platforms and any information about you transferred to the Platforms from other websites. This Policy also applies to any related information that we collect about you offline but that will be processed by automated means using the Platforms. This Policy does not apply to any other information that we collect by any means.

This Policy does not apply to how we may use and disclose personal and identifiable health information.

Third Party Websites

You may find advertising or other content on our Platforms that link to the sites and services of third parties. A link does not constitute approval or an endorsement of the provider of the third-party site or its content, quality, reliability or any other characteristic or feature of the third party site.

Our Platforms are hosted in the United States and our services are provided from the United States. It is possible that certain information will be stored on servers in multiple other countries on the “cloud” or other similar distributed hosting platforms. If you are a user accessing our Platforms or services from the European Union, Asia or any other region with laws governing personal data collection, use and disclosure that differ from United States laws, please note that you are transferring your Personal Information outside your home jurisdiction, and that by providing your Personal Information to us, you are consenting to the transfer of your Personal Information to the United States and other jurisdictions as indicated above, and to our use and disclosure of your Personal Information in accordance with this Policy.

We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

Children Under the Age of 13

Our Platforms are not intended for children under 13 years of age, and no one under age 13 may provide any information to our Platforms. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under age 13. If you are under 13 of age, do not use or provide any information on our Platforms, make any purchases through our Platforms, use any of the interactive or public comment features of our Platforms, or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, or any screen name or username you may use.

If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under age 13, please contact us at info@usradiology.com.

Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. All information that you provide to us is stored on our servers behind firewalls, and certain Personal Information will be encrypted using secure socket layer (SSL) technology.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. When we have given you (or when you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Platforms, you are responsible for keeping that password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the Internet is not completely secure. Although we have implemented security measures that we think are adequate, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information transmitted to our Platforms. Any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on our Platforms.
