Sehha for Arabic Medical Information has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site: Sehha for Arabic Medical Information
Sehha gathers information about users in four ways:
Automatically logged information (like almost all internet sites)
Data that users provide through optional, voluntary registration in our Medical Newsletter
Data that users provide through optional, voluntary Question Form
Data that users provide through optional, voluntary Feedback Form
Automatically logged information
Almost all worldwide website servers, including our server and third party tracking services, automatically log certain information about the visitors. This information includes your visit's date, time, IP address, IP name, browser, operating system, and country. Additionally, our server's logging system reports on high traffic page views. The data available to Sehha through the server aggregating tracking system enables us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to help our advertisers better understand the demographics of our audience.
Registration, Question, Feedback Forms
Data provided through the Medical Questions, Feedback, and Medical Newsletter registration forms are optional and voluntary. Such information enables us to help our visitors and provide them with useful medical information, and at the same time help us to better tailor our content to readers' needs.
Our site's registration, Medical Questions, and Feedback forms requires users to give us contact information (like their name, email, phone and fax numbers), and demographic information (like their age).
Contact information collected from forms is used to send medical information, to clarify medical questions, and is also used to send promotional messages and material from some of our advertisers to our users, and is also used to contact the visitor when necessary.
Demographic and profile data collected at our site is shared with advertisers on an aggregate basis only. No personal information is shared with third parties, including advertisers. The only exception to this is Medical Questions; see
special relationships below.
This site contains links to other sites. Sehha for Arabic Medical Information is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.
We are not associated with a particular physician, hospital, health system, or insurance company. Physicians accepting to answer medical questions are also not associated with us. They volunteer to help us and to help our visitors by answering medical questions free of charge. In such case provided personal data is shared with the physician answering the question.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Few trustable persons are dealing with the information. Periodic data backup is performed and kept in a safe place.
Children's Guidelines (for age under 13)
We will NOT collect, use, or distribute to third parties personally identifiable information without prior verifiable parental consent.
We will NOT give the child access to unmonitored chat rooms, message boards, email accounts, or other services that would give the child the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable information without prior verifiable parental consent
When verifiable parental consent is not obtained, we will only use the online contact information (such as email) to:
Respond directly to the child's request on a one-time basis and not use that information to re-contact the child for other purposes.
Request the name or online contact information of a parent for the purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing parental notification.
Respond more than once directly to a specific request from a child (such as in the case where a child requests a newsletter subscription or asks a medical question) and not used to re-contact the child for other purposes. We will use our best efforts to provide parental notification, which will include the nature and intended use as well as an opportunity for the parent to prevent the use of the information and participation in the activity.
We will NOT entice the child to divulge more information than is needed.
We will provide the parent a description of the specific types of a personally identifiable information collected from their child upon request. We will allow the parent to refuse further use or future online collection of personally identifiable information and provide a way for a parent to obtain any personally identifiable information collected from their child.
We have provided a notice to children in age appropriate terms of what personally identifiable information is to be collected.
We will NOT provide any links to Web sites that are unsuitable for children.
We encourage children to get their parent's permission before sharing personal information online.
