Privacy policy

This policy applies to all information collected or submitted on Radiology Cafe's website


Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us.

This page describes our privacy policy.  Our Terms of Service can be found here.

 

Cookies and information usage

Our website uses cookies.  By using our website you consent to our use of cookies.  A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we put on your computer if your browser settings allow.  These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of the website which helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.

We use cookies to assist with social media sharing (such as Facebook like buttons) and also ‘analytical’ cookies.  Analytical cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it.  This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily.

When you sign up or create an account you will be asked to enter your name, email address, and create a username and password.  These details will be used for logging in, account activation, resetting your password if you forget it and receiving emails from us.  We use cookies on the site to keep you logged in.  You can delete your account at any time by sending us a message at the contact us page.  Requests for deletion are usually dealt with within 48 hours, however they may take slightly longer (e.g. if we're on holiday!).

 

Google Analytics

Radiology Cafe uses Google Analytics.  This is a piece of software that grabs data about website visitors (you).  It can record what website you came from to get here, how long you stayed for, what kind of computer you’re using and quite a bit more.  The tracking information allows us to better understand the kind of people who come to the site and what content they’re reading.  This allows me to make better decisions about design and writing.

We may share anonymous aggregate statistics with outside parties, such as how many users access our services.  In the future, we may sell to, buy, merge with, or partner with other businesses.  In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.  No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting.

Your IP address may be stored and used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information about you for statistical purposes.  We may also use your IP address in helping to diagnose problems with our server.  Your IP address may also be used to assist in the detection of fraud and we may pass this information to the police.

Want to opt out of tracking?  You can opt out of Google’s advertising tracking cookie or use a browser plugin to opt out of all Google Analytics tracking software.

If you ONLY signed up for our email newsletter (not a Radiology Cafe user account), then your email address will never be shared with any 3rd parties.  It will only be used for Radiology Cafe communications.  You can stop receiving our promotional emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in every email.

If Radiology Cafe believes that your use of the site is unlawful or damaging to other users, we reserve the right to disclose the information obtained about you to the extent that it is reasonably necessary in our opinion to remedy the situation and prevent such conduct continuing.
