This information may include name, physical address, phone number, email address and other personal information that you choose to provide. MEDIPENDANT® uses this information for purposes of communications with you, to respond to requests you may have, and for marketing purposes.

Sharing of Information with Third Parties
MEDIPENDANT® will not sell or give your personal information to third parties for their use for purposes unrelated to MEDIPENDANT® without your permission.
MEDIPENDANT® will retain personal information collected by a Site for as long as it is needed to fulfill the purpose for which the information was provided, to maintain a record of communications with you, or as required by applicable law.
To protect the personal information we receive MEDIPENDANT® uses certain security measures designed to guard against the loss, misuse and alteration of that information. It should be recognized, however, that we cannot guarantee that transmission of data over the Internet will be absolutely secure. Due to the open nature of the Internet the information you provide may be in environments that do not have adequate security measures and may be accessed and used by persons other than those intended. As a result, while protection of your personal information is important to us, MEDIPENDANT® is not able to ensure the security of information you transmit to us and you assume the risk of any third party obtaining that information. Upon receipt of your information MEDIPENDANT® will strive to ensure its security on our systems.
