7. Data Retention

7.1 You will be asked to provide information to register as a User, and in order to use certain parts of the Site. You acknowledge and agree that when the Agreement terminates in accordance with these Terms your access to such information through the Site may terminate, and that following such expiration or termination such information may be archived or deleted from the Site in accordance with our applicable records retention policy(ies). We do not guaranty the availability of your information, or any other content or materials on the Site, and you acknowledge and agree that such information stored on or through this Site may be archived or deleted periodically in accordance our applicable record retention policy(ies).

7.2 Dermveda employs Google Analytics software called User-ID in order to better understand who its users are and what they want to do, find, and learn on the Dermveda platform. User-ID allows Dermveda to offer a better user experience by offering insight into whether the organizational structure of the Site is optimal. User-ID also allows Dermveda to see which Site content is most popular and whether Dermveda should work on further developing those areas.

In order to accomplish this goal, Dermveda will be collecting very limited user data through User-ID. Dermveda will be gathering data about what page Users’ start on, what pages they visit, and in what order. Dermveda will only associate User-ID data to users who have signed up on Dermveda and are navigating the Site while signed in.

Before sending any User data to Google Analytics, Dermveda removes anything that would allow Google to identify a User. The only data Dermveda will send to Google Analytics is the users’ unique ID, which Google will have no way of associating to the User’s personally identifiable information (PII). This data will remain anonymous to Google. Google cannot identify Users with the unique ID.

If Users do not wish to have their sessions tracked, Dermveda allows them to opt out. In order to opt out, Users can sign into their Dermveda account, go to their account profile, and uncheck the box that says “Allow Dermveda to track your sessions.”

8. Links And Third Party Information.

8.1 Third Party Content is not maintained or controlled by Dermveda, and as a matter of policy, Dermveda does not independently verify, prescreen, or monitor any such Third Party Content. While we believe the Third Party Content is from reliable third party sources, we are not responsible for the availability, content, completeness, adequacy, utility, or accuracy of such Third Party Content. Dermveda does not make any endorsement, express or implied, of any Third Party Content.

8.2 Certain Third Party Content is subject to additional specific terms and conditions which can be found in Additional Terms and in applicable areas of the Site and websites linked to this Site.  You acknowledge and agree that your use of such Third Party Content is subject to all these terms.

8.3 Site features that interoperate with Third Party Content depend on the continuing availability of such third party services and materials for use with the Site.  If the third party providers of such services or materials cease to make the services or materials available on reasonable terms for the Site, we may cease providing such Site features.
