Medical Device Facts Privacy Policy

Medical Device Manufacturers Association, which administers [email protected] (the “website”), values your privacy and we are committed to protecting it.  We exercise care in handling any information and data that we collect and use.

You are not required to provide any personal information to visit the website.  If you choose to provide us with personal information through the website, for example, your name and email address, we may use this information to contact you or to send you newsletters, alerts, updates, or other related information.  MDMA has determined that it has a legitimate interest in carrying out processing for these purposes, subject to applicable law and to the extent that your interest and rights do not override this interest.

If you wish no longer to receive communications from MDMA, an unsubscribe link will be included in each email you receive.  If the link is not working properly, please reply to the email with “Unsubscribe” in the subject line and you will be removed from future communications.

We do log each visitor’s domain and IP address automatically.  This identifies the computer that is being used to access the website, but it does not identify the user by name or email address.  For this purpose, we may also use “cookies” (a small data file stored by your computer’s hard drive or web browser) to collect information about each visitor’s use of the website, including basic information about the visiting computer and its connection to the Internet (e.g., the date and time of access to our website and the domain name and IP address from which the visitor entered our website).  We use the information supplied by a visitor or visitor’s web browser to help provide better services to you and to evaluate the frequency of visitors using sections of the website.  This information is aggregated and the statistics are used to assist us in managing our website.  We do not link this information with any personally identifiable data about you.   Cookies can be disabled through the settings on your web browser.  Should you do decide to disable cookies, you will still be able to access some areas of our website but you may not be able to access others.

We reserve the right and you expressly authorize us to share any information we have about you:

(1) in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or to defend against legal claims;

(2) to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, fraud, or situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person or property; and

(3) to investigate, prevent, or take action against voluminous spamming, service attacks, or attempts to compromise the security of information on the website.

We may share information with vendors providing contractual services to us, such as hosting vendors and advertising service providers.

In addition to the sharing described in this Privacy Policy, we may share information about you with third parties whenever you consent or direct such sharing.

Because MDMA’s website is operated in the United States, any information submitted to our website – from any location – will be automatically transmitted to us in the United States.  The United States does not provide the same level of data protection as is required in some other parts of the world.  MDMA’s website uses security measures to protect information you provide to us, but we cannot guarantee that these measures will prevent a third party from unlawfully intercepting or accessing this information.  We also cannot guarantee that errors will not occur in the administration of the website.

Our website may contain links to other Internet websites, and MDMA is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of any linked websites.  Your use of any platform or third-party website is subject to their terms of use and privacy policies.  You agree and acknowledge that MDMA will not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, services on or through any such site or resource or goods.  We encourage you to read the privacy policy for each website you visit.

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from users under the age of 18. If we discover we have such personal information, we will take reasonable steps to delete it.

We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time.  We will notify you of changes by posting changes here.  Any changes to the Privacy Policy will become effective when the updated Privacy Policy is posted on the website.  Your use of the website or your provision of personal information to us following such changes indicates your acceptance of the revised Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy please contact us at [email protected].
