Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

The International Society for Medication Adherence (“ESPACOMP“) operates and may operate other websites. It is the ESPACOMP’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, ESPACOMP collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. ESPACOMP’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website. From time to time, ESPACOMP may release aggregated non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

ESPACOMP also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on sub sites. ESPACOMP only discloses logged in user and related IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that related IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to ESPACOMP’s websites choose to interact with the ESPACOMP in ways that require ESPACOMP to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that is gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with ESPACOMP are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, ESPACOMP collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with ESPACOMP. ESPACOMP does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

ESPACOMP may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. ESPACOMP may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, ESPACOMP does not disclose personally- identifying information other than as described below.

ESPACOMP uses cookies in a range of ways to improve your experience on our website, including:

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

ESPACOMP discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on ESPACOMP’s behalf or to provide services available at ESPACOMP’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using ESPACOMP’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. ESPACOMP will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, ESPACOMP discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when ESPACOMP believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the ESPACOMP, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an ESPACOMP website and have supplied your email address, ESPACOMP may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with ESPACOMP and related services. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. ESPACOMP takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Business Transfers
