We may occasionally supplement your information with information we receive from other sources including, but not limited to (a) companies that provide our products or services by way of a co-branded or private-labeled website, (b) companies (e.g., pharmaceutical companies) that sponsor surveys or programs on our website (the entities in (a) and (b), collectively, "Partner Companies"), (c) downloadable software applications from our websites or (d) professional organizations such as the American Medical Associations, which we will add to the information which we already hold about you.

Use of your Personal Information
Physicians Office Resource collects and uses your personal information to operate the Website and various “connect” features within the Website, including Diagnostics & Devices, ConnectRx and eHealth, and to deliver the services you have requested.

We use the information we collect to administer our business activities, improve our website, products and services, provide customer service, make available products and services to our users and customers, and for the recruiting, marketing, and other business purposes of Physicians Office Resource and our Partner Companies.

Without limiting the foregoing, this information helps us to create your account, verify your identity, verify your eligibility for products and services, deliver interactive educational programs, provide you support, initiate and fulfill orders, complete transactions, and administer the website.

Without limiting the foregoing, we may use your personal information to communicate with you. For example, we may correspond with you, possibly through email, direct mail, fax, or phone calls related to your transactions and orders, participation in our surveys, programs and services, invitations to new surveys or programs and services, deliver information about new surveys, programs or services, and to alert you to developments in the use of pharmaceuticals or selected information from the pharmaceutical industry related to your medical specialty. We use contact and demographic information to offer participation in surveys or programs. We may need to respond to your comments or requests for information; or we may contact you if needed in the course of processing or shipping products or services offered through our websites.

When you register with Physicians Office Resource, you generally provide us your name, license number and e-mail address. You also confirm other contact information about you. Your information is handled differently depending upon which, if any, advertisers with whom you request to be connected. If you request to be connected to a manufacturer of medical diagnostic equipment through the Diagnostics & Devices channel, your name and contact information, including your e-mail address, will be provided to the medical equipment manufacturer you specify. If, on the other hand, you request to be connected to a pharmaceutical company through ConnectRx, your name and contact information, excluding your e-mail address, will be provided to the pharmaceutical company you requested. Thus, your e-mail address is provided to companies through the Devices & Diagnostics channel, but not to companies through ConnectRx.

In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, business address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Physicians Office Resource may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries.
