Information That We May Collect.
We collect your information in different areas of our site. The exact information collected and how it is collected varies depending on the areas of our site that you use. Some information is collected automatically such as URLs, and some information is provided by you voluntarily.
When you register as a member, we collect personal information, including, without limitation, name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, licensing information, medical education number, and American Society of Anesthesiologists member number. We also collect information you provide for contributions to PSA’s Political Action Committee (“Z-PAC”), such as bank account information and credit card information. We may also disclose your information and the amount of any contributions you make through Z-PAC as may be required by any local, state or federal election commission or otherwise as required by law. If you do not want to provide us with this information or any other requested information, please do not complete any forms. Additionally, the site may allow you to voluntarily disclose information to us through a survey or in an e-mail.
Our Use of Your Information.
We internally use personally identifiable information to improve our goods and services, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content, to customize our site’s content and layout, and for maintenance purposes. We believe these uses allow us to improve our site and better tailor it to meet our users’ needs. We may also disclose or use personally identifiable information to investigate and respond to any violations of our policies then in effect from time to time.
Due to the PSA’s affiliation with the Pennsylvania Medical Society, the Pennsylvania Medical Society hosts and manages the PSA member data. The PSA uploads all information concerning the PSA site users and members to the Pennsylvania Medical Society database each day. All users of the data base have access to the stored information.
We may use personally identifiable information to deliver information that, in some cases, is targeted to your needs and interests, such as promotional e-mails, targeted banners and promotions. If you are a registered member, you may receive occasional mail from us announcing events, new information, or updates to our website. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your e-mail address or mailing address as applicable and asking us to remove you from our mailing list.
We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you as required by law, including voluntary disclosures to law enforcement agencies and government officials, as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.
