Privacy Policy

MyMedicalForum Privacy Policy

Your privacy is just as important to us as it is to you, which is why we follow these principles to protect your privacy:

  • We will not rent or sell your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes.
  • All information that you provide will be secured with industry standard protocols and technology.

Personal Information Collected

MyMedicalForum collects publicly available information about physicians in a database to provide a directory and referral service to other healthcare professionals. This information includes your name, office address, office phone and fax numbers, specialty, and the medical school and training institutions you attended. Almost all doctors, and many other healthcare professionals, are included in our database. If you choose to register and become a User, you will verify that the information that we have collected about you is accurate.

The purpose of the MyMedicalForum service is to permit Users to add to the publicly available information about themselves in order to develop, maintain and enhance a network of professional contacts. Users may provide us certain personal information, such as your affiliations and work history, which we collect and publish in order to allow you to enhance your network of contacts.

If you have any hesitation about providing such information to us and/or having such information displayed on the MyMedicalForum website or otherwise used in any manner permitted in this Privacy Policy, you may refrain from providing this information. The only information that you are required to provide in order to become a member of MyMedicalForum is your email address. By default, your email address is not published in your MyMedicalForum profile, and we will use it only to send you product updates and information. You can, of course, opt not to receive these updates.

If an authorized third party, such as an administrator in your office, completes the registration form on your behalf, both you and that third party will be deemed to have accepted all of the terms of this Privacy Policy.

We collect your personal information at the following times:

During Register

The following fields are required during registration to guarantee the MyMedicalForum network is a useful directory for its members: name, address, specialty, office phone, occupation, email address and password. Physicians are required to additionally enter or confirm medical school, year of graduation and birthday. Most of this information, other than your email address, will already be included in your profile, but we ask that you verify that the information is correct, and update it where necessary. We use your medical school year of graduation and birthday in order to verify that you are a physician.

We also give you the option to provide the following information: subspecialty, title/practice, clinical areas of interest, maiden name, languages spoken at your office, and profile photo. Providing such information is completely optional and choosing not to provide this information will not affect your ability to browse the MyMedicalForum directory or use the MyMedicalForum service.

All of the information that you voluntarily provide will be included in your profile, which is accessible to anyone browsing the MyMedicalForum directory, except your birth year, year you graduated from medical school, and your email address.

Adding to Your Public Profile

Once you have completed the registration process, you may at any time provide additional information to your Profile. Such information includes: medical group, IPA and hospital affiliations, internship, residency program, fellowships, work history, presentations, publications, education, professional interests, memberships, and board certifications. Providing additional information is entirely optional, but enables you to better identify yourself and find new opportunities in the MyMedicalForum system to build and leverage your professional network.

All of the information that you voluntarily provide will be published in your profile, which is accessible to anyone browsing the MyMedicalForum directory, except the year(s) you graduated from your internship, residency and/or fellowship programs. Any information you provide to us, whether during the registration process or as an update to your Profile, may be used in the same manner and extent to which other information is permitted to be used hereunder, including for the purpose of serving advertisements through the service.

Adding a Private Profile

If you choose, you may fill out a private profile on MyMedicalForum. The private profile can consist of back line, mobile phone, home phone, other phone, pager, inpatient/admit number, email address or other private note.

Your private profile is visible only to those confirmed colleagues with whom you select to share it.

Inviting Others to Join MyMedicalForum

If you wish to invite your colleagues to join MyMedicalForum, you can use our service to fax invitations to their offices. In this case, no additional information about you or your colleagues is collected.

Alternatively, you may enter their names and email addresses, which MyMedicalForum will use to send your invitation including a message that you write. The names and email addresses of people that you invite will be used only to send your invitation and reminders.

Contacting Customer Support

MyMedicalForum may collect information through our website or through Customer Support in order to, among other things, accurately categorize and respond to your inquiry and deliver appropriate service levels.

The information you choose to provide on our service is used to help you describe yourself to other Users. Other information, that does not personally identify you as an individual, is collected by MyMedicalForum from Users (such as, for example, patterns of utilization) and is exclusively owned by MyMedicalForum. This information can be utilized by MyMedicalForum in such manner as MyMedicalForum, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate.

Sharing Information with Third Parties

MyMedicalForum takes the privacy of Users very seriously. We do not sell, rent, or otherwise provide your private information to third parties for marketing or other purposes.

If you would like to be excluded from the aggregated research or products based upon aggregated data about our Users' activities on the site, please email

Surveys and Polls

Communications to other Users

Communications you initiate through MyMedicalForum, such as a colleague invitation sent to a non-User, will list your name in the message, along with your current office address and phone/fax numbers. No other contact information will be included in the message.

MyMedicalForum members may communicate with one another using the MyMedicalForum Doctor ChatsTM text feature. Doctor ChatsTM messages may only be initiated between two users who have confirmed a colleague relationship within the MyMedicalForum network. In the case where a User has initiated a group message to two or more of his or her colleagues, recipients of this group message may "reply all" to the recipients of this group message, even though they are not all colleagues. This is the only instance where a User may receive a Doctor ChatsTM from a non-colleague. Doctor ChatsTM messages may be sent Secure or non-Secure. Secure messages require recipients to confirm their identity by entering their PIN code prior to viewing. Non-Secure messages may be read by anyone with access to a User's mobile device.

You can disable Doctor ChatsTM at any time in Settings. You can disable "push" notifications of new Doctor ChatsTM messages at any time through the settings on your iPhone.

Legal Disclaimer

It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information when required by law, such as responses to civil or criminal subpoenas, or other requests by law enforcement personnel. We will disclose such information when we have a good-faith belief that it is necessary to comply with a court order, ongoing judicial proceeding, subpoena, or other legal process or request to MyMedicalForum brought in any country throughout the world, or to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

Disclosures to others
