Plastic Surgery Portal - Privacy Policy


Within this Privacy Policy, the following term definitions will apply:

  • "We," "Us" and "Our" refer to Plastic Surgery Portal and Signature Forum (Plastic Surgery Portal's parent company) staff
  • "You," "Customer(s)" and "Guest(s)" refer to any and all visitors to www.PlasticSurgeryPortal.com.

At Plastic Surgery Portal, we are committed to protecting the privacy of our customers (who we consider "guests"). As a result, we have created this Privacy Policy in order to clarify to our guests the manner in which Plastic Surgery Portal and Signature Forum will and will not use the information which our customers provide to us through our website.

The following are some common questions that may arise with regard to Plastic Surgery Portal, and the information which we request from our guests at different points on our website:



What Information Does Plastic Surgery Portal Collect?
How Does Plastic Surgery Portal Use the Information It Collects?


General

The information that guests provide to Plastic Surgery Portal is used:

(1) to provide our guests with personalized assistance in scheduling their plastic surgery consultation appointments.

(2) to tailor our provisional information, guest resources and service recommendations to the particular interests of each guest.

(3) to continuously improve the convenience and functionality of our website.




Contact Forms

Plastic Surgery Portal utilizes a variety of automated contact forms that enable guests to request information and services. Through these contact forms we may collect:

  • Contact information (such as e-mail addresses)
  • Demographic information (such as zip code)
  • Information regarding guests' plastic surgery interests (such as liposuction)

This information enables us to process and respond to guest service inquiries in a prompt and accurate manner.


Contests / Surveys/ Quizzes

We may occasionally run contests, conduct surveys, or feature quizzes in which we ask visitors for contact information (such as email addresses), personal feedback (such as procedure interests) and unique identifiers (such as member numbers). The information collected on our contest applications is used to administer the contest and to notify winners.

The information collected in surveys is used to improve our website's relevancy, accuracy and service capabilities. Quiz information is used to personalize guests' experiences and treatment inquiries through our site. In the event a guest doesn't want to be contacted following a survey or quiz, guests may choose to opt out of future contact correspondence with Plastic Surgery Portal.


Financial Information

Guest financial information is never collected directly through the Plastic Surgery Portal website. If a guest has contacted Plastic Surgery Portal to schedule a plastic surgery consultation, and if the preferred plastic surgeon charges a consultation fee, a cancellation fee or a no-show fee, guests will be asked to submit a credit card or billing account number to a Plastic Surgery Portal liaison representative over the phone to hold their appointment. In cases where the consultation appointment has no attached fees, guests won't be required to submit any financial information to us.

If we must collect a guest's credit card information, it is always stored in Plastic Surgery Portal's secure database and is only viewable by select administrative staff.


Demographic Information

Demographic guest data may also be collected through Plastic Surgery Portal. We use this data to personalize the guest's experience with us, and to show them content that we think will be relevant or interesting to them. For guests who become members of Plastic Surgery Portal or Signature Forum (Plastic Surgery Portal's parent company site), this information will help us provide them with content according to their preferences.

Additionally, this information may be used internally by Plastic Surgery Portal for market analysis and other purposes. In select circumstances, this information may be shared with advertisers on an aggregate basis (i.e. all personal information will be removed).


Mailing Lists

Contact information registration forms, contest forms, survey forms and other sources are also used to send information about us, and promotional materials, to our guests.

In addition, the guest's contact information may be shared with select partners of Plastic Surgery Portal (like Signature Forum) who may want to contact our visitors. Users may opt out of receiving future mailings by checking the appropriate box when opening their Plastic Surgery Portal account, or when modifying their account information. In the event that you have registered more than one e-mail address with us, please check the opt-out box for each e-mail account you use.



How Does Plastic Surgery Portal Protect the Information it Collects?


Passwords

To provide you with an increased level of security, access to your personal account information is protected with password(s) which you select. We strongly recommend that you not disclose your password to anyone.


Registration & Financial Information

All personal information that you provide to Plastic Surgery Portal—including names, addresses, contact information and credit card numbers—is stored in a secure database. This database is located in a physically secure facility and is located behind multiple "firewalls".


Secure Server

If and when you place orders* through our website, or through our parent site Signature Forum, you will transmit your order information, including your credit card number, to our secure server. Our secure server uses Secure Sockets Layer Software (SSL) which allows us to receive information that your web browser encrypts before transmitting to us.

Since any order information you provide to us will be transmitted using a secure connection, customers with web browsers that cannot support this level of security will not be able to order products through Plastic Surgery Portal or Signature Forum.

To ensure that you are conducting a secure transaction, please look for a small padlock icon in the lower right corner of your browser before you send your financial information. Should this icon not be available, please notify Plastic Surgery Portal immediately and DO NOT send your financial information.

*At this time, no financial guest transactions are performed through the Plastic Surgery Portal website.

The security of an online transaction* is of the utmost importance to our clients and their customers. This exchange is secured using Secure Sockets Layer technology from Netscape. SSL is considered the standard in the industry and has been adopted by web software developers. SSL is used to receive your order, encrypt it and, through authentication and data encryption, secure all aspects of the online transaction.

An important player in the security scheme is the Certification Authority. The CA issues, manages and authenticates the digital certificates which allow secure transactions to occur. Verisign is a respected CA with the technology, solid infrastructure and practices needed and used by clients around the globe.

This site employs SSL encryption and digital certificate authorization.

*At this time, no financial guest transactions are performed through the Plastic Surgery Portal website.



Does Plastic Surgery Portal Share Its Information With Other Companies?


General

Plastic Surgery Portal does not sell or share guest information with any unaffiliated third parties. Plastic Surgery Portal will share guest information with select network doctors and their office staff in the event that a guest schedules an appointment with one of our doctors.

If Plastic Surgery Portal must acquire and share guest financial information with one of our doctors to schedule an appointment, this information won't be relayed via insecure emails or faxes. We communicate required guest financial info directly to the doctor or their office manager over the phone.


Account Information

Plastic Surgery Portal may release account information if it believes, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (1) comply with the law, (2) enforce or apply the provisions of our Terms and Conditions, or (3) protect the rights, property or safety of Plastic Surgery Portal, our customers or other individuals.


Credit Verification

Please note that when you order or schedule services (like consultations) from Plastic Surgery Portal, we will use a secure credit verification company to validate the credit card and other information you provide, at the request of the plastic surgeon, and before we fulfill your order. A $1 validation charge will appear on your card statement following this process and will be credited back to you shortly thereafter. We have an agreement with said credit company to ensure that guests' personal information is kept confidential.
