We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up to date.  You may ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate.

 

Security

All pages are served over HTTPS.  Your user password cannot be accessed by the Radiology Cafe team (although we could ask you to reset it when you next log in).

 

Cookies

Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information.  This information is used to track visitor use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity.

For further information visit www.aboutcookies.org.

You can set your browser not to accept cookies and the above websites tell you how to remove cookies from your browser.  However in a few cases some of our website features may not function as a result.

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.

 

Google Analytics

Radiology Cafe uses Google Analytics.  This is a piece of software that anonymously 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 us 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.

Anonymized IP address may be stored and used to help 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.

 

Other websites

Our website contains links to other websites.  This privacy policy only applies to this website so when you link to other websites you should read their own privacy policies.

 

Changes to our privacy policy

We keep our privacy policy under regular review and we will place any updates on this web page.  This privacy policy was last updated on 27th May 2018.
