How We Collect Information, What Information We Collect, and Why We Collect the Information
Data Provided to Us by Our Users
For purposes of our Product, we collect anonymized physician pay data from subscribers with whom we have a written agreement. Sometimes, those subscribers provide us with physician names in conjunction with the pay data. Any data collected is governed by a written agreement with the subscriber and subscribers agree to diligently conform to all applicable laws and regulations.
MD Ranger is in the business of publishing information which may include aggregated information that is collected for the product. We only use the anonymized physician pay data; we do not use physician names, if received, and physician names are never associated with pay data in the Product or any other service or product offered by MD Ranger. MD Ranger uses the anonymized data to calculate aggregate statistics that conform with Federal antitrust guidelines. Any data submitted to MD Ranger is maintained in strict confidence and is de-identified and aggregated prior to release to MD Ranger subscribers.
