Your privacy is important to the Society for Developmental
and Behavioral Pediatrics (SDBP). Our current privacy practices
are outlined below. We may modify this information periodically,
so please check back for updates on our current policies regarding
information gathering and dissemination.
Disclaimers: SDBP tries to ensure that all
information on this website is accurate but does not guarantee
that it is. This website contains scientific and educational
information, but its contents do not constitute medical advice.
Members Only Section: To access areas designated
as Members Only users must be current members of SDBP. SDBP members
who wish to use the Members Only area of the website will be
required to enter certain personal identification information
to gain access. The personal information entered will not be
used in any way other than to control access (see below).
Links: This website contains links to other
Internet sites. SDBP is not responsible for the content or privacy
practices of those sites. We encourage users to be aware of this
when they leave this website and to read the privacy statements
of the other sites they visit.
Surveys: SDBP, or third parties designated
by SDBP, may request information from users via surveys. Survey
information may be used by SDBP for business or scientific purposes.
Collection and Use of Information:"Personal
Identifying Information" is your name, street address, e-mail address, telephone number, or any other
information that might identify you individually. The SDBP does
not collect this information from a user of this web site, except
where you send it to SDBP voluntarily. On occasion, the SDBP
will sell to third parties its membersâ€™ names and mailing addresses
(but not e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, or fax numbers)
that it gathers from its members. Notwithstanding any of the
above, we may release membership lists or personal identifying
information already obtained if we determine that release is
appropriate to comply with the law, to enforce or apply our contractual
rights or obligations, to protect the rights, property, or safety
of SDBP, our members, or others, or to establish a legal claim
e.g., IP addresses or type of web browser you are using, may
be collected to be used in aggregate to create statistics for
the web site and the system administration. This analysis of
traffic to the web site and pages visited permits us to design
the web site to best suit our users' interests. We do not use
non-personal information to identify you on an individual basis.
We may place "cookies" on the computers of visitors; these cookies enable you to return to the web
site and use its services without logging in and identifying
other than those on our web site.
Access and Correction of Information: If you
wish to review the information that we have collected from you
(e.g., to confirm that we have your correct address), please
contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will provide you with the opportunity
to correct any errors.
Security: The SDBP has security practices
in place to ensure the privacy of our users. For example, the
membership database is on a secure area of the web server. However,
even with these safeguards, there is no absolute guarantee of
security from interception or unauthorized access. In the unlikely
event of a breach despite our efforts, the SDBP shall not be
responsible for the breach.
