Information We Collect

We collect information about you when you use our sites and applications. We collect information directly from you such as your contact information, profile information, or business information.

However, we cannot guarantee that we will not later collect from publicly-available websites other information that pertains to you.

Single Sign-on: If you choose to sign in to a DoveMed site or application with Facebook or similar sites and services, we import the requested information from your account and we make it part of your profile. Because DoveMed sites and applications are intended to allow you to share your information and to allow others to find you, we make certain information about you publicly available by default. Such information may, for example, be accessed by everyone on the Internet, including users without accounts, and may appear in public search engine search results. However, you can control the visibility of your information by managing your privacy settings within your account. You can also restrict the information available to others by deleting information you do not want visible or by not providing it at all.

When you post information on another user’s profile or comment on another user’s post, the public availability of that information will be subject to the other user's privacy settings.
