Personal Information of Healthcare Professionals and Medical Students, Residents and Providers
MedNavigator maintains a database of healthcare professionals and medical students, residents and providers (“Candidates”). We may receive Candidates’ name, email address, physical address, and other professional information from (i) licensed databases such as DMD Marketing Corp. (DMD) or the American Medical Association Physician Professional Database (AMA PPD) and other similar databases which have obtained Candidates’ consent to share such information with us and; or (ii) through your direct consent given to MedNavigator or its Affiliates. We license the use of our database, in a limited format, to third parties so that they can search the database for professionally relevant reasons. Use of the database does not mean that we will give, sell, trade, or loan the actual information in the database (except as otherwise provided herein). Moreover, use of the database does not provide access to any contact information such as your email address or phone number. Rather, we may send you professionally relevant information on behalf of the third party. This will not result in your information being made available to the third party unless you take additional actions (e.g., responding to the e-mail, visiting the third party’s website, etc.). If you are a Candidate who takes additional actions with such third party, you understand that we have no control over and assume no responsibility for personal information you submit to such third party, and shall have no liability for any actions or inaction taken by such third party in connection therewith.
