1. What information we collect about you and how we use this information

1.1 Account and Profile Information

You don’t have to create an account to use the website for searching and viewing forums, topics and posts.

If you do choose to create an account, you must provide us with some personal data so that we can provide our services to you. This includes a display name (for example, “John Doe”),  a password, and an email address.

Your display name may be public, but you can use either your real name or a pseudonym.

After the registration you can change those in your account editing page.

Once you registered and created an account, you also have the option of adding these public information:

  • Member Title

  • Avatar (Profile Picture)

  • And other details to your profile information to be displayed in our community.

 

Additionally, whilst using the https://www.medicination.com/ & https://www.medicination.in following information may be collected :

  • Internet Protocol (IP) address 

  • Geographical location

  • Browser type and version 

  • Operating system 

  • Referral source 

  • Length of visit, page views, website navigation and any other related browsing activity

 

Most activity on https://www.medicination.com/  and https://www.medicination.in is public, including your profile information mentioned above.

The information posted about you by other people who use our forum may also be public. For example, other people may mention you in posts.

 

You are responsible for your topics, posts, and other information you provide through our services, and you should think carefully about what you make public, especially if it is sensitive information.

You may choose to register connecting your account to accounts on another service (e.g. Facebook login or Google login), and that other service may send us information about your account on that service. We use the information we receive to provide you features like cross-posting or cross-service authentication, and to operate our community. We create new account in our community for you based on your third party account information you share.

 

1.2 Contact Information

We use your contact information, such as your email address, to authenticate your account and keep it – and our services – secure, and to help prevent spam, fraud, and abuse.

We also use contact information to personalise our services, enable certain account features for example, for login verification, reset password, to send you information about our community and notify on new replies to your subscribed forums and topics. You can also unsubscribe from any email notifications.

If you email us, we may keep the content of your message, your email address, and your contact information to respond to your request.

1.3 Non-Public Communications

Some features let you communicate with more control on who sees your content. For example if Group Messaging is enabled you can choose to have non-public conversations. In these cases we may store and process your communications and information related to them.

 

This includes message content, images, information about whom you have communicated with and when to better understand the use of our community, to protect the safety and review the reported messages. We share the content of your Private Messages with the people you’ve sent them to; we do not use them to serve you ads.

 

When you use features like Private Messages to communicate, remember that recipients have their own copy of your communications on Forum – even if you delete your copy of those messages from your account – which they may duplicate, store, or re-share.

 

As this website might contain errors and bugs – remember that even private messages and private information might be visible due to an error. You take full responsibility for using our platform acknowledging that the platform is made by a small group and while we try our best – we might still have some bugs and errors that can cause your private communication and data to be visible to the public.

Please be cautious when using our website.
