The data collected by International Medicine during your interaction with these third-party services adheres to the principles outlined in this Privacy Policy. Conversely, data collected by the operators of these third-party services will be governed by their own privacy policies.

Use of Google Analytics for Website Insights

To gain insights into visitor behavior on our platforms, we may employ Google Analytics.

The data collected remains anonymous and includes metrics such as visitor counts, referral sources, and pages viewed during a site visit.

During this registration process, we will request specific personal information, including but not limited to your name, a valid email address, affiliation, postal address, phone number, password, academic qualifications, institutional role, and areas of research interest. Some of this information is crucial for the seamless setup of your user account, enabling access to the full range of International Medicine services. The information you provide may be utilized by International Medicine to fulfill contractual obligations, such as the publication of your article. Additionally, we may internally utilize this information for purposes like business evaluation, responding to inquiries or comments, targeted marketing initiatives, or the detection and prevention of fraudulent activities, claims, or other liabilities.
