How We Share Your Personal Information
Med-IQ does not sell or otherwise disclose personally identifiable information about you, except as described here.
In the course of doing business, we employ service providers and individuals to perform a variety of functions on our behalf. These service providers may have access to your personally identifiable information if it is needed to perform their functions for us, but they are not authorized by Med-IQ to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements. These service providers are also required to maintain the information in confidence.
In addition, we may disclose information where we think it is necessary to investigate or prevent an actual or suspected crime or injury to ourselves or others, if required by law, or in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials.
During the normal course of our business, Med-IQ may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires, or seeks to acquire, us or any of our assets, information we have collected about you may be transferred to such entity. In addition, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, such information may be considered an asset of ours and may be sold or transferred to third parties. Should a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to require that the transferee use personally identifiable information provided through our Sites in a manner that is consistent with this privacy statement.
