By using our Website, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. We therefore suggest that you review this Privacy Policy carefully.

Information We Collect

We collect personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) via our Website that you voluntarily provide to us, for example, by completing online forms or e-mailing us. The types of Personal Information that we collect may include your name, home, work and e-mail addresses, telephone and fax numbers, date of birth, and gender, and information related to your education (e.g., scholarships received, English proficiency data, academic background).

We also may collect non-personally identifiable information about you (e.g., IP address, referring website, pages viewed, and length of visit) through our use of various web tools such as cookies, web beacons, and other technology that are sent to and stored on your hard drive to automatically collect and log web usage data from you when you visit our Website.

How We Use and Share Information Collected

We use your Personal Information to respond to your requests and to provide you with information and/or services, and to do so, we may share your Personal Information with Affiliated Parties, to the extent permitted by law. However, as a general practice, we do not sell, rent, or provide your Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties.

Specifically, you should be aware that if you submit an online application form via the Website, we will transmit the data you have submitted, including your Personal Information, to the University of Queensland and Ochsner. Once your data and other Personal Information is in the possession of these Affiliated Parties, it will become subject to their privacy policies. MedEdPath is not liable for any disclosures of your Personal Information by any Affiliated Parties or other third parties.

The non-personally identifiable information that we collect from you informs us about how you use and navigate our Website and helps us monitor, customize, and enhance your experience on the Website. We may use and share with others aggregated and/or anonymous information that we have collected based on web usage data or statistical information that we have compiled about users of the Website.

In addition, we may disclose your Personal Information when legally required to do so; at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation; to verify and enforce compliance with the policies governing our Website and applicable laws; or to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Website. Also, we may disclose Personal Information we collect to our Affiliated Parties or to a successor entity in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, sale of assets, or other corporate change respecting our business.

You always will be given the choice not to submit your Personal Information to us or to decide what communications you want to receive from us. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you have received a cookie, giving you the opportunity to decide whether to accept it. You have the option to reject our cookies and still use our Website, but you may not be able to access or use some of the features we offer on our Website.

If, upon review, you wish to deactivate your profile, or update your Personal Information, we will endeavor to do so in a timely manner. Occasionally, information that you request to be removed will be retained in certain files for a period of time in order to properly resolve disputes or to troubleshoot problems. In addition, some types of information may be stored indefinitely on “back up” systems or within log files due to technical constraints, or financial or legal requirements. As a result, your Personal Information may not be completely removed from our databases in response to your request.
