  2. PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT.
    Information we collect from visitors:

    Visitors to RPC Sites can access the Site's home page, and browse some areas of the Site, without disclosing any personally identifiable information. We do track information provided to us by your browser, including the Web site you came from (known as the referring URL), the type of browser you use, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you. In addition, we gather information about you that is automatically collected by our Web server, such as your IP address and domain name. RPC may use Web server and browser information to individually customize its offerings and presentations if you submit your personal information.

  3. RPC will take steps to safeguard any information you share with us. By providing any personal information, you acknowledge and agree that, despite efforts to safeguard such personal information, no system, including the RPC systems, are perfect and no data is completely safe from inadvertent, unintended or unauthorized disclosure. RPC stores the information you provide about yourself in a database in order to provide you with the information you request. The information is stored for the lifetime of the database unless you request that it be removed.

  4. The information on this Web site is intended for individuals 18 years of age or older. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable data from Site visitors under the age of 18.

Except as described above, RPC will not intentionally otherwise use or disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except to the extent reasonably necessary: (i) to correct technical problems and malfunctions, to technically process your information and to determine the effectiveness of our projects; (ii) to protect the security and integrity of our Web site; (iii) to protect our rights and property and the rights and property of others; (iv) to take precautions against liability; (v) to the extent required by law or to respond to judicial process; or (vi) to the enforcement agencies or for an investigation on a matter related to public safety, as applicable.

  6. Cookies, log files, and pixel-tags (Web beacons) are technologies used by the RPC Sites to identify a user as the user moves through RPC Sites. Your browser allows us to place some information (session based IDs and/or persistent cookies) on your computer's hard drive that identifies the computer you are using. We may use cookies to personalize our Web sites and to track your usage across other RPC Sites. Your Web browser can be set to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies, reject cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is sent to you. If your browser is set to reject cookies, Web sites that are cookie-enabled will not recognize you when you return to the Web site, and some Web site functionality may be lost. The Help section of your browser will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies. On occasion, we contract with third parties to place cookies on your computer's hard drive. Although cookies do not normally contain personally identifiable information, if you have provided us information about you, we may associate your registration information with cookies or other tracking utilities our Web site places on your computer's hard drive. Associating a cookie with your registration data allows us to offer increased personalization and functionality. Without cookies, this functionality would not be possible.

  7. As a resource to Site visitors, RPC may provide links to other Web sites. Site users should carefully review the privacy policies and practices of these Web sites, as RPC cannot control or be responsible for the privacy practices of other Web sites.

  8. THIRD PARTIES. RPC may share some kinds of information with third parties as described below:

    • Companies and people who work for RPC: RPC contracts with other companies and individuals to help RPC administer the Opioid Analgesics REMS Program. If you are a health care professional, RPC may validate your licensure status and other information against available databases that list licensed health care professionals. In order to perform their jobs, these other companies may have limited access to some of the personal information RPC maintain about our users. Other companies may collect information on our behalf through their sites. This occasionally incorporates the use of frames on the site that will not show the URL you are visiting in the browser address window. We require such companies to comply with the terms of our privacy policies, to limit their access to any personal information to the minimum necessary to perform their obligations, and not to use the information they may access for purposes other than fulfilling their responsibilities to us. We use our best efforts to limit other companiesí use of personally identifiable or health care information.

    • Legal requirements: We may release account and other personal information when RPC believes that its release is required to comply with the law regulations, rules or local ordinances. We may release personal health information if, in our judgment after review by an attorney, the release is compelled by law or regulation, or if the release may be necessary to prevent the death or serious injury of an individual.

    By using this Site and the contents and services available to you on our Web site, you consent to our collection and use of your information as described above. RPC will continuously assess its practices to ensure that your privacy is respected. RPC may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. If RPC makes any substantial changes in the way RPC uses your personal information RPC will notify you by posting a prominent announcement on RPC's Web site.
