Apart from the personal information collected when visitors sign up, we also collect anonymous non-personal information through the use of "cookie technology". Cookies are small text files a Web site creates when you visit a site. There are two common types of cookies, "session cookies" and "persistent cookies". Session cookies store information only for the length of time that you are connected to a website. Unlike "persistent cookies", they are not written onto your hard drive.
Cookies and Web Usage Reports
We use session cookies to learn how all our visitors navigate throughout the various parts of the website. This website tracking data is used in the aggregate to help us provide the most efficient service and navigational tools for our visitors.
For registered visitors, we also link the website tracking data generated from the session cookies to some of the personal information you provided. Through this linkage, we can create aggregate demographic profiles of web usage. These statistical and aggregate reports do not contain any personally identifiable information.
We use aggregate reports to learn how many visitors with certain characteristics (e.g. geographic region) visit a particular portion of the website. This aggregate information will help us to determine areas of the website of particular interest to certain segments of the community. The aggregate reports could also serve as the catalyst for the creation of new features at the medSchool For You site and the development of future benefits and services for our members. With your permission, you will receive email notices about these new features and services. As stated above, you can indicate at the initial registration stage or at any time whether you wish to receive e-mail updates about the website features.
Cookies and Log-in Preferences
Cookies can also make your use of the web easier by saving language and log-in preferences. We use persistent cookies to store your preference and log-in information so that you will be "remembered" by our server. You will not have to go through the "splash page" and enter your log-in id each time you visit the site. You can indicate at initial registration whether you wish to have your computer "remembered" by checking the "Remember Me" box at sign-up. You will have to re-input your log-in information each time if you do not choose this option.
With most internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your hard drive, block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is used. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions.
