We value and respect the privacy of our members, customers and subscribers, as well as the security of your personal data.
When you subscribe to the Practice-based Evidence in Nutrition: PEN® System, we collect certain personal information, such as your name, profession, area of practice, address and e-mail address. This information is used to process your order and for the administration of your subscription. Your e-mail address is added to our electronic mailing list so that, from time to time, we can send you product updates, information about new features, additions and changes to our website. If you do not want to receive these e-mail alerts you can change this preference at any time by going to the "My Profile" section.
Your e-mail address and other personal information will not be sold or provided to any outside parties. We may reasonably disclose your personal information where such disclosure is: required by law, regulation or government request; required to comply with a warrant or court order; or necessary or appropriate for the operation of our services, which may include disclosure to our partners, including the British Dietetic Association, the Dietitians Australia and Dietitians of Canada.
We use four types of cookies in the PEN System but you can customize the information that we collect:
- Necessary Cookies: These cookies provide core functionality within the PEN System and the website will not function correctly without them. They are enabled by default and cannot be disabled.
- Preference Cookies: These cookies enable our website to remember information about you that customizes how the website looks or behaves for you (for example, storing your username or language preference).
- Enhanced Functionality and Content Cookies: These cookies are set by third-party providers whose service we have added to the PEN System. For example, we use Twitter on our website for social media interaction.
The registration process for the PEN System gives subscribers the option of making a payment online. Our web pages and servers use current Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology that ensures that sensitive information, such as credit card information, is encrypted during transmission over the internet and cannot be intercepted and translated by a third party. Your credit card information is not permanently retained on our database. The record of the credit card number will be removed once we are notified that the transaction was successful.
Please be assured that we take your concerns about privacy seriously, and we make every reasonable effort to protect it.
This Policy is intended to comply with the relevant legislation that exists in the jurisdictions of Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom.
By subscribing and registering within the PEN® System you acknowledge that we will process your data as described in this Policy.
