We also collect information related to your usage and access of our Services.

For example, cookies help us with things like remembering your username for your next visit, understanding how you are interacting with Our Produces & Services, and improving them based on that information.

2. USE AND SHARING

a. In general, we will use your information to communicate with you, to provide Our Products & Services, and to facilitate collaboration between you and other users.

b. We will not sell your information in personally identifiable form to any third party outside of our company and in general only share such information with outsiders as necessary to fulfill your requests, such as to respond to inquiries about content or troubleshooting technology issues, and as needed to provide Our Products & Services.

c. We may de-identify information such that the resulting de-identified data, including de-identified protected health information (PHI), is not individually identifiable information as provided in 45 CFR § 164.514, and we may provide such data in de-identified or aggregated form (combined with other data, results or measurements) to our partners. However, we never disclose aggregate usage or de-identified information to a partner (or allow a partner to collect such information) in a manner that would identify you or any other individual.

d. If you are using Our Products & Services as part of a team, your team leader may have the ability to limit your access and control of Our Products & Services. Please be aware that limitations, restrictions, licenses, or any other controls placed by employers, team leaders, or other administrators that you work under may see or otherwise be provided access to information that you provide to us. We cannot be responsible for the internal agreements, policies, or practices of your university, employer, or team (for example, related to sharing of protected health information (PHI) or other confidential or proprietary data). It is your responsibility to review and ensure you are complying with those agreements, policies, and practices. If you have concerns about any of these types of entities or individuals being provided that information, please review those agreements, policies, and practices, and be mindful of the teams you join or invite others to.

3. SECURITY

We are continuously monitoring and developing ways to keep your information secure. For example, our Ovation client APIs and applications use industry standard secure encryption for all communications with our Services. We also continue to work on features, including encryption of files at rest, to keep your information secure. If you wish to protect your data during transmission, it is your responsibility to use a securely encrypted connection to communicate with our Services.

4. RETENTION OF YOUR INFORMATION

We will retain information you store on Our Products & Services for as long as we need it to provide you Our Products & Services. If you delete your account, we will also delete this information.

From time to time, Our Products & Services may provide links or other access to third parties. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such third parties. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave Our Products & Services and to read the privacy statements of any third parties that collect personally identifiable information.
