Third-party partners of AlphaMed Press and other websites that you may access via the AlphaMed Press websites have different privacy policies and are not subject to this policy. We recommend that you read the privacy statement of each such website to find out how they protect your personal information.

Information We Collect

Information we collect may include your name, address (postal and e-mail), and telephone and fax numbers, as well as facts about your profession or other demographic information. If you request access to paid content, including subscriptions, we will also ask you for credit card payment information. 

The websites of AlphaMed Press collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time (so-called timestamp) of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider (ISP) of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, AlphaMed Press does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our websites as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, AlphaMed Press analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
