Companies and People Who Work for Us:

Q M contracts with other companies and individuals to help us provide our services. For example, we may host some of our professional websites on another company's computers, hire technical consultants to maintain any web-based health tools, or work with companies to remove repetitive information from customer lists, analyze data or provide marketing assistance (including assisting us in targeting our advertisements as described herein), customer service or fulfillment services.

In addition, if you are a healthcare professional, we may validate your licensure status and other information against available databases that list licensed health care professionals. In order to perform their jobs, these other companies may have limited access to some of the personally identifiable information we maintain about users of the professional websites. We require all such companies to comply with the terms of this Privacy Policy, to limit their access to any personal information to the minimum extent necessary to perform their obligations, and not to use the information they may access for purposes other than fulfilling their responsibilities to us.

Sometimes Q M sends offers to selected users or clients of QM services on behalf of other businesses. When we do so, we do not give such businesses your name and address.

In the event that we are legally compelled to disclose your personally identifiable information to a third party, we will attempt to notify you unless doing so would violate the law or court order.
