Web For MDs is committed to providing hospitals with a comprehensive communication platform that enables them to reach their medical staff effectively. We prioritize your privacy and are committed to safeguarding any information collected through our website or our listserv messaging services.
Web For MDs collects the following information from you when your hospital signs up with us or when you first obtain privileges in a new hospital that uses our communication tools:
As part of our service, we monitor email delivery and will contact you when your email bounces and provide you technical support when necessary. You may also update your information by going to the following web page or contacting us directly.
Additionally, when you create a login or login through a third-party, Microsoft Office 365, or your hospital account, we do not obtain any information from such parties unless required by your hospital.
We do not transmit your information automatically to any other websites without your approval. Each physician/provider/listserv member must contact us individually and complete the request form allowing Web For MDs to transmit your information to your credentialing organization.
Web For MDs does not disclose any information to third parties under any circumstances, unless required to do so by law. Since 2001, we have been managing our own data and we have a strict policy to not share, sell, or disclose your data in any format including de-identified data. Realizing data brokers can reverse engineer de-identified data of physicians, we have refrained from sharing, selling, or disclosing any form of user information.
We have a strict no SPAM policy and do not engage in advertising. You should not experience more SPAM or advertising emails from other sources, as we do not share, sell, or disclose your data with data brokers. We also monitor outgoing newsletters and emails to help authorized hospital staff learn about safe email practices.
We do not send text, push notification, or alerts to your mobile devices for promotional or transactional messages. However, we provide a text notification and automated call notification system as an optional feature for our secure evoting system. If your hospital has subscribed to this, you may choose to opt out by following the instructions texted to you on your cell phone. We also offer a text-based evoting service that your hospital may have subscribed to. We DO NOT sell, share or disclose your cellular number with any third-parties.
If your hospital has subscribed to our text-based evoting service, please note that we do not sell, share, or disclose your cellular number with any third-party organizations. Your privacy is important to us, and we are committed to keeping your information safe and secure.
What is Privacy Shield and do you participate in this program?
Privacy Shield as defined by the government is: "The EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks were designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the European Commission and Swiss Administration, respectively, to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce."

Because Web For MDs does not transfer, share, or sell your data to any entity within or outside of the United States, we do not participate in this program.
