WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME IS COLLECTED?
Depending on your use of the Service, we may collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you. Such information may include, without limitation, your name, social security number, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and billing information.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-personally identifiable information is information, any single item of which, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you, including without limitation demographic information (such as age, profession, gender, current location, zip code, birth date, or year of birth), IP addresses, browser types, unique device identifiers, device types, requested URL, referring URL, browser language, the pages you view, the date and time of your visit, domain names, and statistical data involving the use of the Service. Certain non-personally identifiable information may be considered a part of your personally identifiable information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. However, the same pieces of information are considered non-personally identifiable information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-personally identifiable information (for example, your viewing preferences).
We will collect personally identifiable information that you submit to us or authorize us to collect from you. We may also receive personally identifiable information about you from third parties providing payment authorization and fraud screening services and background checks as part of your registration for or use of the Service.
Registering to Use the Service and in the Course of Using the Service.
You may be required to establish an account in order to take advantage of certain features of the Service. If so, if you wish to establish an account you will be required to provide us with information (including personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information) such as name, social security number, postal address, e-mail address, birth date and billing information. We may also receive personally identifiable information about you from third parties providing payment authorization and fraud screening services and background checks and references as part of the registration process. In addition, we may obtain your personally identifiable information from you if you identify yourself to us by sending us an e-mail with questions or comments. Examples of information we may collect from you in connection with your registration for and/or use of the Service may include nursing license, photo identification, CPR card and employment eligibility documents. The information we may collect from you is not limited to what is described on this list, and we may add or remove categories of information from this list at any time at our discretion.
If you are an Informatix Partner, we will collect and track precise geolocation information (i.e., information about your precise location) from the mobile devices on which you have installed the Application.
Cookies and Action Tags.
We may collect non-personally identifiable information passively using “cookies” and “action tags.”
You do not have to accept cookies to use the Service. Although most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you may reset your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies generally. Most browsers offer instructions on how to do so in the “Help” section of the toolbar. However, if you reject cookies, certain features or resources of the Service may not work properly or at all and you may experience some loss of convenience.
For the avoidance of doubt, this Service uses third-party service platforms (including to help analyze how users use the Service and to deliver advertising services). These third-party service platforms may place cookies on your computer or mobile device. If you would like to disable “third party” cookies, you may be able to turn them off by going to the third party’s website.
Here is a link to the main third-party platform we use: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/
“Action tags,” also known as web beacons or gif tags, are a web technology used to help track website usage information, such as how many times a specific page has been viewed. Action tags are invisible to you, and any portion of the Service, including advertisements, or e-mail sent on our behalf, may contain action tags.
We also collect non-personally identifiable information through our Internet log files, which record data such as user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of the Service. This information may be used to analyze trends, to administer the Service, to monitor the use of the Service, and to gather general demographic information. We may link this information to personally identifiable information for these and other purposes such as personalizing your experience on the Service and evaluating the Service in general.
