PRIVACY NOTICE

OxBow Data Management Systems, LLC. (“OxBow”) is strongly committed to protecting your privacy online when visiting our web site.  OxBow knows that you care how confidential information about you is used and shared and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly.  This privacy notice outlines the information OxBow will collect on the Med-IT web site and how we will use that information.  By visiting this web site, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

Types and Uses of Personal Information:  For each visitor to a Med-IT web site, our web server automatically recognizes and collects the individual’s IP address and domain name, not their e-mail address.  The only information OxBow obtains about individual visitors to our web site is that supplied voluntarily by visitors (e.g. name, company name, title, e-mail address, physical address).  In cases when OxBow may need additional personal information to provide visitors with customized content or to inform them about new features or services, visitors are explicitly asked for that information.

OxBow also collects certain personal information with respect to our users or visitors in order to provide our services.  Such personal information collected by OxBow is kept strictly confidential and is used for internal purposes only, including, without limitation, providing requested services, improving our marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyzing web site usage, improving our content and web site offerings and to customize our web sites’ content and layout.  OxBow also uses visitor information to create aggregate reports; however, these reports do not contain any personally identifiable information.  We believe these uses allow us to improve the OxBow web site and better tailor it to meet our users’ needs.  Additional examples of the type of information we collect can be found at the bottom of this page.

EXCEPT AS DISCLOSED IN THIS PRIVACY NOTICE, OxBow does not sell, lend, rent or otherwise disclose any personal information to any third parties. HOWEVER, YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE SHARED WITH AFFILIATES, AGENTS OR CONTRACTORS OF OxBow.

Our visitor’s personal information may be used in the following ways:

Business Transfers:  As we continue to develop our business, OxBow, or substantially all of its assets, may be acquired.  In such a transaction, customer information will of course be one of the transferred business assets.

Cookies:  Occasionally, our web site may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser directories of your computer.  “Cookies” are pieces of information that a web site transfers to an individual's hard disk for record keeping purposes.  Our web site may use cookies during your online session to deliver content specific to your interests.  Cookies allow us to avoid showing you the same messages repeatedly and allow us to tailor a web site to better match your interest and preferences.  Our cookies enable OxBow to relate your use of the web site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided to our web site.  Most Internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.  Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions.

Registration:  Med-IT’s web site's registration system requires users to give us contact information such as their name and e-mail address, and demographic information such as a ZIP code, sex or age.  The customer's contact information is used to contact the visitor when necessary.  Users may choose (opt-in) to receive future mailings; see the choice/opt-in section below.  Demographic and profile data are also collected at our web site.  We use this data to tailor the visitor's experience at our web site, showing the visitor content that reflects their stated preferences. 

Disclosure Required by Law:  Unfortunately, due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of our visitor’s private communications and other personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this privacy policy.  By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.  Further, we can (and our visitors authorize us to) disclose any information about the visitors to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.  Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect our visitor’s privacy, we do not promise, and our visitors should not expect, that their personal information or private communications will remain private.

External Links:  The Med-IT web site may contain links to other Internet web sites.  We encourage all of our partners, contributors and third parties to implement policies and practices that respect the privacy of our users.  However, OxBow is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.  Our policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from the visitors.  To the extent that visitors disclose information to other parties whether they are linked from the Med-IT web site, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the personal information disclosed to them.  Because OxBow does not control the privacy policies of third parties, our visitors are subject to the privacy customs and policies of that third party.  We encourage our visitors to ask questions before disclosing personal information to others.

Public Forums:  OxBow may provide its users with chat rooms, forums, message boards and/or news groups.  Please remember that any information disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.

Security:  The Med-IT web site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.  OxBow employs strict security measures to safeguard online transactions; personal information is stored in a secured database and, when accessed, always sent via an encrypted Internet channel.

Children’s Privacy:  OxBow understands the importance of protecting children’s privacy in the interactive, online world.  OxBow does not intentionally target or solicit to children thirteen (13) or younger for purposes of collecting personal information.  The OxBow web site may link to certain web sites which may target or solicit to children thirteen (13) or younger and may collect personal information.  Those web sites are not governed by this privacy policy, but will (or should) have their own privacy policies that more fully explain how they respect and protect the privacy of children while providing them information, goods or services.  Check out the FTC's site(1) for more tips on protecting children’s privacy online.

Amendments and Updates:  Please note that we review our privacy practices from time to time, and therefore are subject to change.  OxBow reserves the right to change this privacy notice at anytime by posting revisions on the Med-IT web site.  We ask that our visitors periodically review this page to insure familiarity with the most current version of our privacy notice.  However, this privacy policy is not intended to, and does not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.

Terms and Conditions of Use and Notices:  If you choose to visit a Med-IT web site, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Terms and Conditions, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the State of Nebraska. If you have any concern about privacy at OxBow, please send us a thorough description to privacy@mccallie.com, and we will try to resolve it. Our business changes constantly. This Notice and the Terms and Conditions will change also, and use of information that we gather now is subject to the Privacy Notice in effect at the time of use. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our web site frequently to see recent changes.

Opt-In / Removal of Information:  Our web site gives users the opportunity to opt-in to receive communications from us and our partners at the point where we request information about the visitor.   Our web site also gives users the following options for removing their information from our database in order to stop receiving communications or our service.
