As a matter of policy, We do not sell or rent any of your information to third parties for any advertising or marketing purposes. However, the following describes some of the ways that We may disclose your information in the normal course of providing Our services.


We reserve the right to disclose information as required by law or regulation and when We believe that disclosure is necessary to protect Our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process. Notwithstanding any provisions herein, We may disclose Personal Data to governmental authorities when required or reasonably requested to do so by such governmental authorities. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the extent that it is in conflict with any law that may be applicable to the Personal Data of a Data Subject.


BSMDI is only focussed on processing information collected from Participants located within the United States. If information on Participants (“Customers”) has been collected by or on behalf of those Customers including Personal Data received from the European Union, we ask that you immediately email us to the provided address below so that we can remove your information from our systems. “Personal Data” or “Personal Data” means information relating to an identified or identifiable person. With the objective to validate transfers of Personal Data under European data protection laws to countries outside EU and Switzerland we are making available the European Commission’s controller-to-processor standard contractual clauses, commonly referred to as “model clauses” (in the form adopted by decision 2010/87/EU of 5 February 2010 and with Appendices 1 & 2. Any Customer of BSMDI who undertakes processing activities on the BSMDI platform (in respect of Personal Data which is governed by the European data protection laws), should contact [email protected] for more details.


BSMDI is a 501 (c) 7 organization who only provides services to Participants located within the United States. From time to time, BSMDI may have a relationship with affiliates that We share your information with whose business operations may include Services provided to BSDMI from other parts of the world such as hosted solutions or transaction solutions. Your Personal Data may be transferred by Us from your home country to BSMDI affiliates in offices around the world, who may communicate with you regarding your enquiry. Please understand that We limit access to your Personal Data to only those BSMDI employees who We believe need access in order to provide services to you or to otherwise perform their duties. An example of this would be sharing your shirt size with a vendor that will provide us T-shirts for one of our events. The information would be generic, and not specifically reveal who you are.


As Data Processor, BSMDI will only process Personal Data pursuant to the instructions of the applicable Customer (for example where We act as a Data Processor in relation to the processing activities of Customers on Our platform). BSMDI may use the services of third party Data Processors to process Personal Data in accordance with purposes identified for such Personal Data by the applicable Customer (including but not limited to the provision of services). BSMDI will not be responsible for determining the authenticity of any purported Data Subject’s request to access his or her Personal Data. In the absence of express instructions to do so from the applicable Customer, BSMDI will not provide a purported Data Subject with access to his or her Personal Data unless it is demonstrated to BSMDI’s satisfaction that the applicable Data Controller has refused such access.


As Data Controller, BSMDI receives Personal Data about Our business contacts. BSMDI owns and controls such Personal Data as stated in this Privacy Policy. In parallel and in accordance with Recital 47 of the European Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC (as amended from time to time of replace by other EU regulation), We shall act as an independent Data Controller with respect to the processing of Personal Data which is necessary for the operation of Our service which shall include any information processed for the purpose of the conveyance of a communication on an electronic communications network or for the billing thereof.


From time to time, BSMDI provides messaging services to health care providers, and serves as a “Business Associate” (as that term is defined pursuant to HIPAA Regulations) to such providers in relation to the handling of protected health information (“PHI”) that is made a part of Our services.


BSMDI may de-identify or depersonalize data into anonymized and aggregate data that it derives from Customers (“Anonymous Data”). Anonymous Data means data that includes no Personal Data or unique identifiers that could later be used to refer to the Personal Data to which the data was once associated. BSMDI uses only Anonymous Data in performing analyses, and may disclose Anonymous Data to its Customers who have requested such analyses and to third parties where We are contractually entitled to do so.


Protecting the privacy of children is important to BSMDI. For that reason, the Site is structured specifically to not attract anyone under 13, nor do We collect or maintain Personal Data on the Site from those who BSMDI actually knows are under 13. If BSMDI learns or is notified that it has collected information from users under the age of 13, BSMDI will immediately delete such Personal Data.


We provide you the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having your Personal Data used for certain purposes, when We ask for this information. For example, if you register with Us but no longer wish to receive Our newsletters and/or related communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or by emailing Us at [email protected].


We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to guard against unauthorized or unlawful processing of your Personal Data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your Personal Data. BSMDI uses industry-standard security measures to protect the integrity and confidentiality of any Personal Data it owns or processes on behalf of Customers, including, in appropriate circumstances, the use of firewalls, restricted access, and encrypted transmissions. BSMDI limits access to Personal Data to those persons in BSMDI’s organization who have a business need to process such Personal Data. However, no company, including BSMDI, can fully eliminate the security risks associated with such Personal Data. Due to factors beyond BSMDI’s control, BSMDI cannot ensure that Personal Data will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, BSMDI may become legally obligated to disclose such data, or, despite precautions, third parties may circumvent security measures to intercept or access such data.


We cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other Personal Data will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), We may be forced to disclose Personal Data to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or users may abuse or misuse your Personal Data that they collect from the Site. BSMDI does not review, comment upon, or monitor its Customers’ compliance with their respective privacy policies, nor does BSMDI review Customer instructions to determine whether they are in compliance or conflict with the terms of a Customer’s published privacy policy.


Please be advised this Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that BSMDI does not own or control, or to people that BSMDI does not employ or manage. This includes links to other websites on the Site as well as any companies from whom you may have ordered services or products that are transmitted over BSMDI’s network, and any companies from whom you may be purchasing telecommunications services. BSMDI recommends that you be aware when you leave the Site and read the terms of use and privacy policies of any site, product or service that collects Personal Data.


We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, so please review it regularly. If We make changes to this Privacy Policy, We will post the revised Privacy Policy on the Site and other places We deem appropriate. All such changes shall be binding on you 30 days after they are initially posted on the Site unless you are a new user, in which case they are binding on you immediately.


If another company acquires BSMDI or its assets, that company will (a) process that Personal Data held by BSMDI, and (b) assume the rights and obligations regarding such Personal Data described in this Privacy Policy.


If you would like to update or correct any information that you have provided to BSMDI through your use of Our services or this website, limit or opt-out of certain communications, revoke prior communication choices you have made, or if you have suggestions for improving this privacy policy, please send an e-mail to [email protected], or fill out the form in the Contact Us link on this website.
