This is broadly how we handle the information we gather.
Information collected and stored automatically
If you visit our website just to browse, read pages or download information, but do not register for any of our services, we gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information cannot and does not identify you personally.
The kind of information that is gathered automatically include the type of browser you are using (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera), the type of Operating System you are using (e.g. Windows or Mac OS), the date and time of your visit and the pages you visit. We sometimes use this non-personally identifiable information to improve our website(s) design, content and primarily to give you a better browsing experience.
Currently we are using Google Analytics to analyse the audience of the website and improve our content. No personal information is collected from Google Analytics.
Personal information collected
We collect personal information from you only if you provide it voluntarily. The type of personally identifiable information that may be collected by us include name, address, e-mail address and information about your interests in and use of various services. For example, you submit your name and e-mail address to register, to subscribe to our newsletter or to send us your feedback. The information you provide is not given or sold to any private organisations or private persons.
Priority of Legal Obligations
The AsiaIntervention site is a free service, and third-party advertising helps us offset the significant costs of maintaining that free service. However, we also focus specifically on advertising solutions which we believe can add genuine value to the experience of visitors to this site. Naturally, not every advertisement will be of interest to every visitor, but we make an effort to ensure that, on balance, the presence of advertisements enhances rather than detracts from our site.
Advertisements may not be posted by third parties anywhere on the site. (Specifically, advertisements may not be posted without permission in the areas where individual visitors may modify the content of our site.) All ordinary advertisements will be clearly marked as such.
Our editorial content is not influenced by the funding sources/sponsored ads.
The majority of sources of funding is unrestricted educational grants and/or adverts from medical device and pharmaceutical companies.
