2.                  How the information may be shared.

3.                  How TeleEMG protects your information.

4.                  How You can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

1.                  WHAT PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION OF YOURS IS COLLECTED from you through this site and how the information is used.

a.                  Information Collection and Use

TeleEMG is the sole owner of the information collected on this site.  We will not sell, share, transfer or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.  TeleEMG collects information from You when you purchase products or services from the Expert Neurographer at the http://www.teleemg.com pages on our Site.

b.                  Registration and Purchases

During the collection of information at the http://www.teleemg.com/new/onlinestore.htm pages on the Site, You are required to give you contact information (such as name and e-mail address) as well as payment information (such as credit card number and expiration date).  Such information allows TeleEMG to process and fulfill your order and to notify You of Your order status.  E-mail address is also used to confirm Your identity.  This information is also used to contact You about the services on the Site for which You may have expressed interest.

When the Site requests Your identity, the Site will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested.

c.                   IP Addresses

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" or IP address. When You request a page from any page within the Site, our Web servers automatically recognize Your domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about You other than the IP address from which You have accessed the Site. TeleEMG may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, track Your movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

d.                  Children’s and Minor’s Privacy

TeleEMG strongly encourages parents and guardians to supervise the online activities of their minor children and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers to help provide a child-friendly online environment.  These tools also can prevent minors from disclosing their name, address, and other personally identifiable information online without parental permission.  Although the http://www.teleemg.com  site is not intended for use by minors, TeleEMG respects the privacy of minors who may use the Internet.  Whenever TeleEMG becomes aware that a user is under the age of 13 years, the following additional terms, conditions and notices apply to use of the TeleEMG site:

        Users under 13 years of age may not submit information through the Site.  TeleEMG will not collect any personally identifiable information about a person that TeleEMG determines is under age 13, except with written consent from the person’s parent after informing the parent about the types of information TeleEMG will collect, how it will be used, and under what circumstances it will be disclosed.

        “Personally identifiable information” collected from minors may include any of the information collected at the http://www.teleemg.com on our Site, including their contact information (such as name and e-mail address), and may be used by TeleEMG for the same purposes as adult information, as described in this Privacy Policy.

        A minor’s parent or legal guardian may request TeleEMG to provide a description of the personally identifiable information that TeleEMG has collected from the minor, as well as instruct TeleEMG to cease further use, maintenance and collection of personally identifiable information from the minor.

e.                  Opt Out Procedures

You may opt-out of receiving communications from TeleEMG at the point where the Site requests personally identifiable information about You.

Contact mailto:staff@teleemg.com to be removed from an e-mail list.  If You are using an e-mail forwarding service or other similar service please make sure to include the correct e-mail address or addresses.
