Privacy Policy

Privacy Notice
We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy.
What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?
When a visitor requests a page, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the NEXT Medical Network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.
What are cookies?
From time to time, NEXT Medical may send a "cookie" to your computer. We use cookies to identify which areas of the NEXT Medical Network you have visited or customized, so the next time you visit, those pages may be readily accessible. We may use this information to better personalize the content, banners, and promotions that you see on our site. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our site may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.
How do you use single-pixel gifs?
NEXT Medical may use single-pixel gif images, sometimes referred to as web bugs or web beacons, to count Web page accesses and gather some general statistical information. NEXT Medical does not gather personal information through the use of these images.
What information do you collect when I register for something?
NEXT Medical offers access to some services that require registration. We may use your registration contact information to send notification to you of NEXT Medical products and services by e-mail and/or postal mail.
What other information do you request?
We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a survey or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about conferences and trade shows). Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested. We maintain a strict "No-Spam" policy that means that we do not sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third-party, without your consent or as permitted by this Privacy Policy.
We may from time to time send e-mails announcing new NEXT Medical products and services. Except as stated above, NEXT Medical will not send you e-mails that you have not agreed to receive. If you choose to supply your postal address in an online form, you may receive postal mailings from us or other third party companies, such as shipping and fulfillment vendors.
What information do you collect when I purchase something?
If you are purchasing something from NEXT Medical , we and any third party provider, need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, expiration date, and security and/or CVV codes. This allows us, or third party providers, to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status. This information may also be used by us to notify you of related products and services. Credit card and e-mail information will not be shared or sold to third parties for any purpose except as provided in this Privacy Policy without your express permission.
Certain NEXT Medical sites use a shopping cart feature that safeguards this information by using industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encrypted servers. SSL codes the information transferred between you and the server, rendering it unreadable to anyone trying to intercept the information. Other NEXT Medical media properties do not use SSL and thereby do not offer a secure coded way to transfer information. Wherever NEXT Medical collects personal information we make an effort to include a link to this Privacy Policy on that page.
Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?
NEXT Medical will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  1. Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on NEXT Medical ,
  2. Protect and defend the rights or property of the NEXT Medical Network of sites and related properties, or visitors to the NEXT Medical Network of sites and related properties,
  3. Identify persons who may be violating the law, the NEXT Medical legal notice and Privacy Policy, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing the NEXT Medical Network or its related properties,
  4. Fulfill a user’s order or request.

NEXT Medical uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. NEXT Medical reserves the right to transfer all such information in connection with the sale of all or part of NEXT Medical capital stock or assets. Furthermore, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties that receive the information. We are not responsible for such third party privacy policies or how they treat information about their users
What else should I know about my privacy when online?
NEXT Medical is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of third party Web sites. NEXT Medical does not share any of the individual personal information you provide NEXT Medical with the third parties to which NEXT Medical links, except as stated elsewhere within this Privacy Policy, although NEXT Medical may share general, aggregate data with such third parties (such as how many people use our site). Please check with those Web sites to determine their privacy policy.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example through e-mail, discussion lists, or elsewhere - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you’re online.
Your Consent To This Agreement:
By using the NEXT Medical Network, you consent to the collection and use of information by NEXT Medical as specified above. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
