Medicus of Houston is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
Medicus of Houston may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are aware of any changes. This policy is effective from 11/08/2017.
Users are asked to supply personal information (name, address, occupation, specialty, phone, email) when registering for upcoming
Medicus of Houston conferences or tutoring sessions. This information is necessary for Medicus of Houston to comply with guidelines set forth by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) in granting Category I AMA credit to physicians. This information is also used in aggregate to help guide us in selecting content that may be of interest to our clients and participants. Personal information is stored in a secure database not accessible from the Internet. We do not sell or share personal information with any vendors or affiliates.
IP (Internet Protocol) addresses are collected for the purpose of analyzing aggregate traffic statistics. An IP address is a set of numbers assigned to your computer every time you connect to the Internet. An IP address is not unique to a given computer, but rather, to a given Internet connection. Through IP address analysis we cannot determine where our users live, but we can determine if a large number of visitors originate from a given organization or ISP (Internet Service Provider, like Comcast or AT&T). We cannot determine the identities of those visitors, but when viewed in aggregate we can gauge the amount of traffic coming to the site, the most popular areas, and the amount of time spent by our visitors. We do not sell or share IP address information with any vendors or affiliates. We do not make any attempt to trace the identities of people reading our Web site.
Medicus of Houston maintains an SSL (“secure socket layer”) certificate that ensures that any information - personal, demographic or financial - that a client enters in any box or text field on our site is encrypted before being sent. Any information that you yourself enter on our website is secured with state of the art encryption. Always look for “https://” in the address bar to assure yourself that you are on a secure website. Should you ever visit our (or any) website and you do NOT see “https://” when you know it should be there, be aware that you are not actually on the intended site, but have been redirected to a fake, “look-alike” site that has been set up to capture personal and financial information illegally.
