Information collection and use
Personal data is data that reasonably relates to or can be used to identify or contact you or another member of your household, such as your name, email address, telephone number or similar information. BSC collects personal data you voluntarily give us, such as but not limited to, when you request information via our Sites, submit your resume, register for Sites or events, sign up for communications or interact with BSC team members.
We collect or obtain personal data from the following sources:
Our Sites include interactive digital health tools, including enrollment portals, through which information is collected from users. We also collect information about your interactions with our Sites. We collect such information using web logs, cookies, pixels, beacons and similar tools, some of which may be operated by third parties. Our Sites automatically track certain behavior (usage data) during visits, such as, referring/exit URLs and we also collect other basic information about you which does not directly identify you but which may correspond with you or a particular device. We use this information to learn more about how our Sites and online resources are used and to otherwise improve and administer the Site. We also use this information to enable us to deliver information tailored to your interests and preferences, based on your use of the Site. For example, we may collect the internet protocol address assigned to your computer by your internet service provider. This address may change each time you connect to the internet (a “dynamic” IP address), or it may remain the same (a “static” IP address). In most cases, this information is collected automatically, for our legitimate business interests. If you are a registered user, we may use your usage data with or without your personal data, in order to measure the Site's performance and improve the Site's design and functionality. Depending upon the nature of our interactions with you, we collect and store the following types of information from you:
When you provide us with personal data about your contacts we will only use it for the specific reason for which it is provided. If you believe one of your contacts has provided us with your personal data and you want to submit a removal request, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Licensed medical professionals must provide additional personal data to register (e.g., profession, title, Medical ID and clinical affiliation) in case of Sites with restricted access. In addition to the uses mentioned above, we use this data to review and verify your registration. We may obtain additional information about you from other sources through your Unique Physician Identification Number (UPIN).
Use of your personal data
We use the information we collect for the following business purposes:
