The Philadelphia County Medical Society is dedicated to protecting the privacy and security of visitors to our website. This privacy policy discloses the data collection practices of pamedsoc.org, including the information we automatically collect, the information our visitors supply to us voluntarily, and what we do with that information.

Information collected voluntarily
We may collect personal information that you voluntarily provide — such as your name, email address and other contact information—when accessing certain areas of the website.

How we use the information our visitors supply voluntarily:
All information is kept secure and used only for providing services to our website users and for internal administrative purposes.

Only Philadelphia County Medical Society staff and our authorized agents have access to personally identifiable information provided by visitors to our site. We reserve the right to send Philadelphia County Medical Society members, via their communications preferences (email, fax or mail), certain communications that are considered part of membership.

These communications may include:

  • Member newsletters and alerts.

Third parties

We do not rent or sell phone numbers, fax numbers, email addresses, or personal or professional identifiers to third parties. The only information the Philadelphia County Medical Society might sells is printed mailing labels for one-time use only. We monitor the use of these mailing labels to be sure the list is not duplicated and used more than once.
