Information Disclosure

We license the use of our email databases to third parties so that they can contact you for professionally relevant reasons. We will send you professionally relevant information on behalf of third parties. Each email you receive from us will include instructions on how to be removed from our promotional email list. 

In some circumstances, we will allow a third party to have access to our databases for the purposes of data analytics or to contact you for marketing or other purposes. We will allow this access only when the third party has agreed to abide by our list use agreement, as well as any additional restrictions such as those set forth by the AMA or list owner regarding the use of their Master File.

Finally, there are certain circumstances wherein your information may be disclosed to or accessible by a third party. These circumstances include:

  • Subsidiaries and Affiliates. We may transfer personally information to our subsidiaries and corporate affiliates.

  • Enforcement of Rights/Security. We reserve the right to release personal information (i) when we are under legal compulsion to do so (e.g. we have received a subpoena) or we otherwise believe that the law requires us to do so, (ii) when we believe it is necessary to protect and/or enforce the rights, property interests, or safety of the Company, our users or others, or (iii) as we deem necessary to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, prevent fraud and otherwise enforce the Privacy Statement and/or other agreements.
