Last Updated January 1, 2010

Copesthetic Consulting, LP ("Copesthetic") has created various platforms to provide Copesthetic Services (as defined below) including, but not limited to web sites developed and operated by Copesthetic, applications developed or offered by Copesthetic (collectively and individually, "Site"). The Site has been created for one or more of the following purposes: (i) to provide information about Copesthetic and to provide users with the opportunity to learn more about Copesthetic accredited seminars and continuing education courses, including those branded "Copesthetic" (the "Activities") and other Copesthetic non-accredited live, online and print courses, including those branded "Copesthetic" (the "Offerings"), (ii) to register for and/or participate in such Activities or Offerings (the "Copesthetic Services"), and/or (iii) to engage with industry through advertisements and similar promotional offerings available on the Site and through promotional and informational offerings from industry available at Copesthetic events and in Copesthetic applications. This Privacy Policy sets forth Copesthetic policy with respect to information, including personally identifiable data (the "Personal Data") that is collected from individuals who use the Site and from individuals who otherwise register for and/or participate in the Copesthetic Services.

INFORMATION THAT COPESTHETIC COLLECTS
Personal Data That You Provide Through the Site.
Copesthetic collects Personal Data from you when you voluntarily choose to provide such information, such as when you contact Copesthetic with inquiries, register for access to Copesthetic Activities or Copesthetic Services, and/or use certain Copesthetic Services. Wherever Copesthetic collects Personal Data, Copesthetic makes an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy or, where the Personal Data is collected in person, via mail or via the telephone, Copesthetic will endeavor to provide you with a copy of this Privacy Policy or notify you where it can be located. Copesthetic may rely upon third party service providers to collect and process your registration for Activities and other Copesthetic Services. These service providers are instructed that they may use your Personal Data only as specified by Copesthetic Privacy Policy.

By voluntarily providing Copesthetic with Personal Data, you are consenting to Copesthetic's use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data to this Site, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of Copesthetic and the authorized third parties referred to herein for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

Other Information.
Non-Identifiable Data. When you interact with Copesthetic through the Site, Copesthetic may receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. Copesthetic may store such information itself or it may be included in databases owned and maintained by Copesthetic affiliates, agents, or service providers. This Site may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to the Site, the number of visitors to each page of the Site, and the domain names of Copesthetic visitors' Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.

In operating this Site, Copesthetic may use a technology called "cookies." A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts the Site gives to your browser when you access a Web site. Copesthetic cookies help provide additional functionality to the Site and help Copesthetic analyze Site usage more accurately. For instance, the Site may set a cookie on your browser that keeps you from needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the site. In cases in which Copesthetic uses cookies, Copesthetic will not use such cookies to collect Personal Data unless such collection has been disclosed to you in advance. Please see the section entitled "Personal Data That You Provide Through the Site" for information about the Personal Data that Copesthetic collects. On most Web browsers, you will find a "help" section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. Copesthetic recommends that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Site's features.
 
Aggregated Personal Data. In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of Copesthetic Services, Copesthetic often conducts research on Copesthetic customer demographics, interests, and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to Copesthetic. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and Copesthetic may share this aggregated data with Copesthetic affiliates, agents, and business partners. When Copesthetic shares this information in aggregate form, it does not identify you personally. Copesthetic may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe Copesthetic Services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
 
YOUR CHOICES
You can use the Site without providing any Personal Data; however, if you choose to not provide Personal Data you may not be able to register for and/or use certain Copesthetic Services.
 
HOW COPESTHETIC USES YOUR PERSONAL DATA AND OTHER INFORMATION
Copesthetic uses the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, Copesthetic may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact Copesthetic by email, Copesthetic may use the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. Also, if you provide Personal Data in order to obtain access to Copesthetic Services, Copesthetic will use your Personal Data to provide access to such services.

If you register for and/or attend Activities, Copesthetic will use your Personal Data to provide you with documents and other materials related to such Activities while in attendance at the Activities, and Copesthetic may also mail you documents and materials related to such Activities and other products, services and Activities Copesthetic believes will be of interest to you.

Copesthetic and Copesthetic affiliates may also use your Personal Data and other personally non-identifiable information collected through the Site to help Copesthetic improve the content and functionality of the Site, to better understand Copesthetic users, and to improve Copesthetic Services. Copesthetic and Copesthetic affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about services or products Copesthetic believes will be of interest to you. If Copesthetic does so, each communication Copesthetic sends you will contain instructions permitting you to unsubscribe or "opt-out" of receiving future communications. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future communications or to have your name deleted from Copesthetic mailing lists please contact Copesthetic as indicated below. Copesthetic may also share your Personal Data with certain third parties as described further in the section labeled "How Copesthetic Shares Your Personal Data?"

If Copesthetic intends on using any Personal Data in any manner that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy, you will be informed of such anticipated use prior to or at the time at which the Personal Data is collected, and given the option to opt-out of such use.

HOW COPESTHETIC SHARES YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Copesthetic is not in the business of selling your information. Copesthetic considers this information to be a vital part of the relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which Copesthetic may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
 
Business Transfers. As Copesthetic develops Copesthetic business, Copesthetic might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution, or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
 
Related Companies. Copesthetic may also share your Personal Data with Copesthetic subsidiaries and affiliates for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.
 
Event Sponsors. If you sign-up to attend one of Copesthetic Activities, Copesthetic may share your registration information with non-related companies that are involved in supporting the applicable event, including, without limitation, pharmaceutical companies.
 
Business Partners. From time to time, Copesthetic may offer you the opportunity to participate in discount plans and similar benefit programs from one or more of Copesthetic business partners. If you opt-in to participate in the discount plans or other benefit programs of Copesthetic business partners, Copesthetic will disclose your Personal Information to such business partners so that they may register you for the applicable discount plan and/or benefit program.
 
Agents, Consultants, and Related Third Parties. Copesthetic, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples include mailing information, maintaining databases, and processing payments. When Copesthetic employs another company to perform a function of this nature, Copesthetic endeavors to provide them only with the information that they need to perform their specific function and Copesthetic instructs them to limit their use of the Personal Data accordingly.
 
Legal Requirements. Copesthetic may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Copesthetic, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
