Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Convergent 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. Convergent’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Convergent visitors use its website. From time to time, Convergent may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Convergent may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users leaving comments on Convergent’s website. Convergent only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Aggregated Statistics

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

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Convergent’s websites choose to interact with Convergent in ways that require Convergent to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Convergent gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Convergent– by requesting information or purchasing products or services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Convergent collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Convergent. Convergent 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. CONVERGENT collects information that is voluntarily provided to us via our Site. The goal of our Site is to assemble and analyze medical and health information in order to facilitate treatment, and medical research. We share data from our Site for these purposes, but we do so with respect for medical privacy and in compliance with medical privacy law and medical ethics. CONVERGENT collects personally identifying information that is specifically and voluntarily provided by visitors. Such information may consist of, but is not limited to, your name, e-mail address, street address and telephone number so that we may enhance your Site visit or follow up with you after your visit. If you are a physician, we may gather information from you as part of the registration process and your ongoing use of the Site. This may include your contact information as well as detailed information about the medical procedures you perform that you choose to voluntarily provide to us. If you are a patient, personally identifying information about you, including personally identifying health information, is collected in the manner specified in any applicable Subject Information and Consent Form, and it may include your contact information as well as specific information about your treatment that you provide to us. We do not usually seek sensitive information (e.g., data relating to race or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, criminal record, or sexual orientation), except for the medical and health information that we collect with your express consent to collect such information.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Convergent 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 Convergent behalf or to provide services available at Convergent’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Convergent’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Convergent 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, Convergent discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Convergent believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Convergent, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Convergent website and have supplied your email address, Convergent 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 Convergent and our products. We primarily use our website to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support 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. Convergent takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
