The Society of Hematologic Oncology respects the privacy and security of its website users.
This policy does not apply to any websites or services managed, maintained, or hosted by third parties not directly affiliated with SOHO that you may visit, e.g., via a link provided through the website or on a website maintained by any third party. SOHO does not control the privacy policies of other websites to which the website may provide links. We encourage you to learn more about the online privacy and data security policies of third party websites directly from such third parties, as their policies may differ from ours.
By submitting information to us and by using our website, we will assume that you have read, understood, and consent to this policy and all other terms, conditions, and policies that may be applicable to our website from time to time. We also assume that you consent to our use of your information as described in this policy and all other such terms, conditions, and policies. If you do not consent to, or disagree with, this policy or any such terms, conditions, and policies, please do not use our website.
SOHO collects certain information from and about its website users in three ways - directly from the user, from our web server logs, and with cookies and other web technologies, as described below.
We may use information we collect in different ways, depending on the type of information:
The privacy and protection of your personal information are vitally important to us. Any statistics regarding your SOHO website usage that may be reviewed by our management or staff or shared with prospective or existing partners are provided in the aggregate only and do not include any personally identifiable information. When products or services are purchased on the site through the use of a credit card, individual payment information is processed via a secure, third-party server, as noted above, and is not stored by SOHO or otherwise disclosed outside of SOHO. Neither SOHO nor any third party acting on our behalf may use your personal information for any purpose outside the scope of your consent.
Our websites are scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to our site as safe as possible and we regularly scan for malware. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. We implement a variety of security measures when a user places an order, enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal information. All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.
No data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. Accordingly, despite the safeguards in place to protect your personal information, SOHO cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us with respect to our online products or services. You transmit all such information at your own risk. However, once we receive your personal information, we will undertake all commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
Please note that if you use any bulletin board, chat room, blog, comment posting feature, or other public communication service, forum, or feature offered through the website, or post any information available for viewing by other users, any of the information that you share will be visible to other users. The information that you make available can be read, used, and collected by other users to send you unsolicited messages outside of the website. SOHO is not responsible for the manner in which any information that you decide to share will be used by other users.
Our policy is not to share user information, including personal information, we collect with third parties other than as specified below, or where a user expressly consents to our sharing of certain information with a third party. We may share user information with third parties under the following circumstances:
We do not store your credit card information beyond the time required to process your payment for a product or service, but we may keep other user information on file indefinitely.
If you purchase a SOHO service or product online, we may send you a confirmation email confirming your new account, product and/or service. The message will be sent to the address that you supplied to us and will describe ways for you to correct, or otherwise change or delete, the account information you provided.
Please note that SOHO is based in the United States and the website is hosted on servers located in the United States. If you use the website from outside the United States, please note that your information may be transferred to and maintained on computers and servers located outside of your state, province, country, or other governmental jurisdiction, where privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. Your consent to this policy, followed by your submission of information through the website, represents your agreement to the transfer of such information to the United States and the handling of your information consistent with applicable United States law.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. Users must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to access and use the website. By using the website, you represent and warrant that you are eighteen (18) years of age or older and that you consent to this policy, and all other applicable terms, conditions, and policies. If we believe that you are under the age of eighteen (18) or that you are not old enough to consent to and be legally bound by the policy, we may, at any time, in our sole discretion, and with or without notice:
(i) terminate your access to or use of the website (or any portion, aspect, or feature), or (ii) delete any content or information that you have posted through the website.
From time to time, we may use information collected through our website for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in this policy. If our information practices change at some time in the future, we will post changes to this policy on the website. If you are concerned about how your information is used, please bookmark this page and check back periodically. The information we gather is and will be subject to the version of this policy in effect at the time the information is gathered.
