Children under the age of 13 may not use this Site and parents or legal guardians may not agree to these Terms of Use on their behalf. If you are a parent or legal guardian agreeing to these Terms of Use for the benefit of a child between the ages of 13 and 18, be advised that you are accepting full responsibility for his or her use of this Site.

10. General

This Agreement and the End User License Agreement, when applicable, together represent the complete agreement between you and IVUmed and supersede all other agreements and representations between us. Headings used in these Terms of Use are for reference purposes only and in no way define or limit the scope of the section.

The failure of IVUmed to act with respect to a breach of this Agreement by you or others does not constitute a waiver and shall not limit IVUmed’s rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed exclusively by Utah law without regard to conflicts of law provisions. Any action or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement or your use of the Site will be heard exclusively in the state or federal courts located in Salt Lake County, Utah, USA, and you consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.

This Privacy Policy discloses our privacy practices and expresses our commitment to keeping you informed of the information we collect and how it is used. We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time to reflect new uses, rules, regulations or technologies that impact your privacy.  We recommend that users review our Privacy Policy on a routine basis to view any changes.  Please read it in its entirety. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH OUR PRIVACY POLICY, THEN DO NOT USE THIS SITE.

 2. What Personal Information We Collect.
As described in more detail below, IVUmed (“IVUmed.org” or “We”) collects personal information that you provide when using the IVUmed.org web site (“Site”).  When you create an account to gain access to educational materials provided on the Site, you provide information that includes your first name, last name, and email address.  If you choose to make a donation, you provide your name, various contact information, and method of payment information to a third party who processes payments for IVUmed.  That third party provides your contact information—but not your billing information—to IVUmed.

3. How We Use Your Personal Information.

  • Respond to your requests for information

  • Customize your browsing experience and your access to content

4. When and With Whom We Share Your Personal Information

We may share your personal information with other medical professionals or other organizations whose mission and goals related to improving healthcare are similar to those of IVUmed.  Your information may also be shared with third party service providers that are contracted to assist with mailings, event planning, or other purposes related to the activities of IVUmed.  In every case, we will treat your information with appropriate care and confidentiality.  If you ever receive communications from us that you prefer not to receive, you should contact us at the address below.

Aside from the purposes described above, we do not intend to share your personal information with any other third parties unless we have your express permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the disclosure is required to prevent harm or injury or to comply with valid legal processes (subpoenas, warrants) or as required by law. We may share aggregated demographic and statistical information with others, but such information is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

5. How You Can Control the Use of Your Personal Information

You can modify or delete your personal information anytime by accessing your account on the Site.

If you have a password that you use to access materials on the Site, do not share your password with anyone. Other than on this Site, IVUmed staff will never ask you for your password.

6. How We Protect the Security of Your Personal Information

The security of your personal information is very important to us. In our efforts to protect your online financial transactions when making a donation to IVUmed, we insist that our payment processing service providers use a technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).  If your browser is capable of SSL, your personal information will be automatically encrypted, or encoded, before it is sent over the Internet

7. Age Requirement.

IVUmed.org does not intentionally collect personal information about children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 18 but at least 13 years of age you may use this Site only under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by the IVUmed.org Terms of Use (and the End-User License Agreement, if applicable).  Children under the age of 13 may not use this Site and parents or legal guardians may not agree to the IVUmed.org Terms of Use on their behalf.
