Frequently Asked Questions

1. What information do we collect from you?
We may collect information via the website that falls into one of two categories: personally identifiable information and aggregated information. Personally identifiable information is information that is actually used to identify you. We may collect personally identifiable information whenever you voluntarily submit it to the website, including your name, e-mail, company, mailing address, title, area of expertise, and telephone number, plus your preferences regarding PRS products (collectively, "personally identifiable information").
Aggregated information is information that is not directly tied to a specific user, such as the number of people who visit the website from various states. We may collect and store statistics and other information about the online activities of our visitors on an aggregated (i.e., collective) basis. For example, we may track the number of people who view each page, the order in which pages are viewed, and other information to learn which features are the most popular and to refine our design and marketing efforts. Aggregated information also includes information that indirectly (i.e., combined with information collected about you off the website) could be used to identify you, but in practice is not.

2. Where do we collect information from you?

PRS may gather information in the following ways: 
Software Downloads: When you download any of our free software from our website, we may collect and use certain personally identifiable information (e.g., the software you selected, your planned use for the software) for use by PRS.

View a Video: When you view a video, we may keep a record of what videos were viewed for use by PRS.

Newsletters & Promotional E-mails: From time to time, we may offer free electronic newsletters and promotional e-mails as a service to our registered users, based on a voluntary subscription. If you sign up, we will send you newsletters and e-mails periodically listing industry news, industry events, product information, and other promotions. You will only receive a newsletter if you have requested it during registration or directly from our signup form. To stop receiving our newsletter, send an e-mail to us at company@proradsol.com.

Webmaster Lists: If you are a webmaster and send us an e-mail, we may collect your e-mail address.

Chat Rooms and Bulletin Boards: From time to time, we may make chat rooms and bulletin boards available to registered users. Please remember that postings to bulletin boards and chat rooms become public information; thus, you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personally identifiable information within such forums, as it may be collected and used by third parties.

Search Terms: From time to time, we may offer the ability for you to search our website for information that interests you. We may save those search terms and display certain banner ads tied to your search term.

Online Surveys and Polling: If you participate in an online survey or interactive poll, we may ask you for your e-mail address and your preferences in order to track voting.

Contact Information & Third-Party Data: If you contact PRS by e-mail or letter, we may keep a record of your personal correspondence. Thus, if you report a problem with our website, we may collect such information in a file specific to you. Moreover, if you contact us through our feedback area, we require your name and e-mail address in order to send you a reply. Additionally, if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on our site, we may keep the information in a file specific to you.

Browsing: An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers and ad servers to identify your computer. PRS may collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to gather broad demographic information, to enable ads to be served on our site, to report aggregated information to our advertisers, for security purposes, and to monitor the level of activity on our site.

Cookies: Cookies are small data text files that are sent from a computer serving web pages or ads to your computer during a browsing session. The cookies are typically stored on your computer's hard drive and are used by websites to simulate a continuous connection to that site.

Banner Advertisements: In the future, we may include banner advertisements on our website. If you click upon a banner advertisement displayed on our website, you will leave our website (unless, of course, the banner is to another page of our website). In cases where clicking on a banner takes you to a third-party site, if you later disclose personally identifiable information on that site, the third party may be able to tie that information to the banner ads and pages you were viewing on our website.

3. How do we use the personal information we collect from you?
Operation of the Website and E-mail: The aggregated and personally identifiable information we collect from you is used to operate and enhance our website. We may collect personally identifiable information in order to learn more about you so we can provide you with content, products, and advertising that you are more likely to find interesting. PRS also uses registered user information to contact users when necessary and to send promotional e-mails. 

Tracking Website Pages Viewed: Demographic and profile data is also collected via our website. We may monitor the actions of visitors to our website to determine what our users find interesting.
back to FAQ 

4. Who is collecting information? 
Co-branded Services: When you are on the PRS website and are asked for personally identifiable information, you are sharing that information with us alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise or as discussed in this Policy. However, some website services are offered in conjunction with a partner company. In order to provide a co-branded service to you, it is necessary for us to share your personally identifiable information with our partner company. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using our service.
Please be aware that sites on our website may contain links to other sites on the Internet that are owned and operated by third parties. The information practices of those websites linked to our website are not covered by this Policy. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information. Additionally, other companies or ad servers that place advertising on our website may collect information about you through the use of cookies or clear GIFs when you view or click on their advertising. We cannot control this collection of information. You should contact advertisers directly if you have any questions about their use of the information they collect.
Framing/Windows to Third-Party Sites: In addition to providing links to other websites, we sometimes window third-party sites for your convenience. If you click to learn more information, a window or frame containing the third party's site may appear. Any time you are in a window (unless the window is another part of the PRS website), you should assume your personal information is being collected, used, and disclosed in accordance with the windowed site's policies.
Chat Rooms and Bulletin Boards: Except as otherwise expressly discussed in this Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. If you participate in chat rooms or message boards, your user name will be displayed with your comment or posting. Information you provide while using services such as website chat rooms and bulletin boards is available for all to see; discretion should be used in disclosing personally identifiable information within such forums, as it may be collected by third parties. We encourage you to ask questions and to be very cautious before you disclose your personally identifiable information to others.
Surveys and Polling: From time to time, we may use a third party to conduct surveys about our website or polls about a particular issue. If we do, we will either tell you in advance who that third party is, or obtain their promise that personally identifiable information will not be used or further shared with anyone outside of PRS.
back to FAQ

5. With whom do we share your information? 
Merchants: Other than as disclosed in this Policy or with your permission, we will not share your personally identifiable information with merchants. If you do give permission to share your information, you should know that once your personally identifiable information is shared with third parties, we cannot control how it is used or who else it may be shared with.
Fulfillment: Some online activities necessarily lead to disclosure of your personally identifiable information to third parties, such as when you include your name and e-mail address in an e-mail to a third party or when you order merchandise in the shopping areas of our website for direct shipment to you. For example, in order to fulfill certain product orders, we must share your information with the product manufacturer, payment processor (e.g., credit card companies), and shippers.
Data Analysis Agents: The information collected through the website may be provided to an outside company for the purpose of analysis. This analysis is to help us to improve our sites and services to you, and to notify you of special offers that may be of interest to you.
Chat Profile, Chat Rooms, and Bulletin Boards: It is important to note that information you provide as part of your chat profile is not confidential and is accessible by the public. Similarly, any information you provide in chat rooms, message boards, or other public forums is not confidential. For such activities, a separate warning may not be provided. Your choice to disclose personally identifiable information in these cases is voluntary.
Ad servers and Advertisers: Our ad servers will have permission to use their cookies' identification numbers to serve ads on our site and to collect aggregated information to create statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related site information to third-party advertisers. However, these statistics will not include personally identifying information.
Compliance with Service of Process or Law Enforcement: Although it is unlikely, we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide personally identifiable information to the appropriate governmental authorities. If we receive such a request, without prior notice to you we will disclose personally identifiable information upon receipt of a court order subpoena, to investigate hacking attempts, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. If we receive a subpoena as part of third-party civil litigation, we will attempt to provide you with electronic notice (i.e., via e-mail) fourteen (14) days prior to disclosure of personally identifiable information. Moreover, we may release account information without notice to you when we in good faith believe such release is reasonably necessary to enforce or apply our Terms of Service Agreement or to protect the rights, property, computer security, and safety of our website, our users, or others.
Sale of the Company: You agree that we may assign, sell, license, or otherwise transfer to a third party your name, address, e-mail address, member name, and any other personally identifiable information collected by us via the website in connection with an assignment, sale, joint venture, or other transfer or disposition of a portion or all of the assets or stock of PRS or its affiliated entities.
back to FAQ

6. What are my choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of my information? 
E-mail and Promotional Mailings: We may from time to time send you e-mail or other communications regarding our products and services. If you do not wish to receive these promotional mailings, the website provides users the opportunity to opt out of receiving these communications by sending an e-mail to company@proradsol.com. After that, PRS users will not receive future communications or mailings.
Cookies: If you are uncomfortable with the idea of cookies, we recommend disabling cookie support in your browser. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits; however, if you do, you may not be able to use certain services or take advantage of the personalized features of our website. Additionally, it is possible that some areas of the website will not function properly if you set your browser to refuse cookies. You will need cookies for customizable areas of the site, such as message boards and chat rooms.
back to FAQ

7. How can I update, correct, or delete my personally identifiable information?
E-mailing and Newsletters: The website also gives users options for removing their information from our database so they will not receive future communications or receive our service any longer. Users can send an e-mail to company@proradsol.com.
No Comprehensive Deletions: We will retain in our files information you have requested to remove if that information is necessary to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, or enforce our Terms of Service Agreement. Except as noted, upon request we will delete your information from our databases. However, due to the fact that we "back up" the data stored on our systems, such prior information is never completely removed from our databases. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personally identifiable information will be completely removed from our backed-up databases in response to your requests.
back to FAQ

8. What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of my information? 
You can be assured that your personal and account information is reasonably secure on our website. Any information we store at our business is kept physically secure, and only designated employees may obtain access to it. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.
While we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
We cannot fully ensure that your private communications and other personally identifiable information will not be inadvertently disclosed to third parties. We may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. If we need to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to private entities, law enforcement, or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.
back to FAQ 

9. What about the privacy of visitors who are 13 and under? 
If you are under the age of 13, you do not have permission to use our website. We do not knowingly collect, use, or disclose personally identifiably information about users who are under the age of 13. If you are the parent or guardian of a minor under 13 years of age and believe they have disclosed personally identifiable information to this website, please contact us at company@proradsol.com so that we may delete the minor's information.
back to FAQ

10. What are cookies and how do they collect, use, and distribute information? 
Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers and stores to your computer's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies can make the web more useful by storing information about your preferences on a particular site, so that you do not have to reenter them each time you visit a site.
We may use cookies or IP addresses for a number of tasks, including helping us to tailor a website or a marketing message to better match your needs and interests and allowing us to better understand how visitors use our website. PRS and its ad servers may use cookies to assign your Internet browser a unique random number, a sort of anonymous user ID that is stored in a file on your computer. This unique identification number automatically identifies your browser - but not you - to our computers whenever you interact on our website.
The use of cookies is an industry standard, and many major websites use them to provide useful features to their customers. Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user's computer. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You are always free to instruct your web browser to decline our cookies if it has the capability to do so, but some parts of our website may not work properly if you do so.
In the future, we may place advertising on our website that originates from third-party advertisers and/or advertising agencies. Even though these advertisements will be displayed on our website, cookies may be assigned by the advertisers themselves. We do not control these cookies.

11. Where can I find any changes to the Privacy Policy? 
This Policy was implemented on January 1, 2004 and is effective immediately. If you do not agree with the terms of this Policy, you should send us an e-mail opting out of it at company@proradsol.com and we will reluctantly cancel your account privileges and remove your data (subject to the limitations described above). If we make changes to any terms or conditions of the Policy, the changes will be incorporated into this document so you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and to whom we will disclose it. We may change, add, or remove portions of this Policy without prior notice to you at any time.

Policy of Terminating Privileges For Infringement; Notice and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement

Pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 512 as amended by Title II of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Professional Radiology Solutions will terminate the account of any subscriber who uses his or her account privileges to unlawfully transmit copyrighted material without a license, valid defense or fair use privilege to do so. After proper notification by the copyright holder or its agent to PRS and later confirmation through court order or an admission by the subscriber that an account has been an instrument of unlawful infringement, PRS will terminate the infringing subscriber's account. PRS may also in its sole discretion decide to terminate a subscriber's account privileges prior to that time if it has good faith belief that infringement has in fact occurred. In addition, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 512(c), PRS has implemented procedures for receiving written notification of claimed infringements and for processing such claims in accordance with the Act. PRS respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same.

1. an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; 
2. a description of the allegedly infringing work or material; 
3. a description of where the allegedly infringing material is located on the site; 
4. information reasonably sufficient to allow us to contact you, such as your address, telephone number, and email address; 
5. a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use of the material is not authorized by the copyright or other proprietary right owner, its agent, or the law; and 
6. a statement by you that the above information in your notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
