You may set your browser software to reject Cookies, but you will be required to reenter your login information each time you access the Website and the Services, and you may not be able to optimize the features of the Website and the Services. In some cases, you will not be able to access Services if Cookies are disabled.

NOTICE

AWS will inform Users about the purposes for which it collects and uses personally identifiable information, the types of third parties to which AWS discloses that Information, and the choices and means, if any, AWS offers Users for limiting the use and disclosure of personally identifiable information.

GENERAL USE AND DISCLOSURE INFORMATION

Data Integrity; Choice. AWS will use personally identifiable Information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by a User. AWS will take reasonable steps to ensure that such Information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete and current. AWS will offer Users the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether their personally identifiable Information is to be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the User.

Customer Support. Contact information provided in connection with problems, comments or requests is used only to respond to those problems, comments or requests and may be provided to third parties as necessary to respond to the comment, problem or request.

Marketing/Special Offers/Solicitation from AWS. AWS may use a User’s Information to provide updates and other business purposes related to making available the features and functions of the Website and the Services. AWS also may use Information a User provides to make a User aware of new products or special offers or promotions. AWS will abide by requests from you to discontinue such use.

Other Disclosures. AWS may disclose a User’s personally identifiable Information if required to do so by law or if AWS has a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to protect and/or defend the rights and interests of AWS or others. AWS may, as permitted by applicable law, disclose your personally identifiable Information to or third parties in connection with an investigation of fraud, infringement, piracy or other unlawful activity and you expressly authorize AWS to make such disclosures.

Domestic and International Use. All personally identifying Information collected by AWS may be used in the United States or if the Services are undertaken by AWS for a foreign User, such Information may be transferred to the United States for use of the Services, or such Information may be transferred outside of the United States and you consent to any such transfer of Information outside of your country.

Merger or Acquisition. If AWS is merged into or acquired by another entity, personally identifiable Information may be transferred to such entity as a part of the merger or acquisition. Should such a transaction occur, we will require that the other entity follow this Policy.

Service Providers. AWS may disclose a User’s personally identifiable Information to contractors, service providers and other third parties we use to support our business.

Aggregated De-identified Data.      De-identified data that does not identify a User may be used to inform the health community about trends; for AWS’s internal business purposes, for marketing and promotional use; or for sale to interested audiences. When we provide this Information, we perform appropriate procedures so that the data does not identify you and we contractually prohibit recipients of the data from re-identifying it back to you.

ACCESS, REVIEW AND MODIFICATIONS TO YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION

If you opted to receive marketing information from AWS, you may access, modify, remove, correct or update personally identifiable Information by contacting AWS. AWS may retain transactional history in order to document a transaction you may have had with AWS.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES

As a part of the Services, AWS provides links to web sites operated by third parties. AWS is not responsible for the Information collection or privacy practices or the content of those third party sites. Users should check the privacy policies of any site prior to use.

BROWSER “DO NOT TRACK” SIGNALS

Some third-party browsers provide “do not track” machine readable signals for websites, which are automatically applied by default and therefore do not necessarily reflect our visitors’ choice as to whether they wish to receive advertisements tailored to their interests. As a result, we do not respond to these signals.

SECURITY

AWS treats data as an asset and therefore stores personally identifiable Information it obtains using appropriate safeguards. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of Information, AWS has put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to protect personally identifiable Information in its possession from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure alternation and destruction. However, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions, and other users may abuse or misuse your personally identifiable Information that they collect from the Website. You should consider any communication that you transmit to AWS (such as data, questions or answers, comments, or suggestions) as non-confidential, and agree that AWS will not be liable or responsible if Information that belongs to you is intercepted and used by an unintended recipient.

FURTHER INFORMATION; ENFORCEMENT

AWS has established internal mechanisms to verify its ongoing adherence to this Policy. AWS also encourages Users to raise any concerns about our processing of personally identifiable Information by contacting AWS. AWS will seek to resolve any concerns.
