Picis Clinical Solutions (“Picis”) (also referred to as “we”, “us”, and “our”) respects the online privacy of its members and other visitors (“you”) to this www.picis.com (the “Site”).
WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A “cookie” is a small file created by a web server that can be stored on a user’s device for use either during a particular (“session” cookie) or future (“persistent” cookie) browsing session. This file may include information about internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), URLs of any referring or exited webpages, operating system, and/or date and time stamps.
First-party cookies are set by the website you are visiting, and they can only be read by that site. Certain features of our Website use session, persistent, and flash cookies.
“Session” cookies are temporarily stored on your hard drive and only last until they expire at the end of your browsing session or after a set time period. Our Website’s session cookies are set to expire in 50 months and are required for log in to access secure areas of the Website and to process e-commerce transactions. “Permanent” cookies remain stored on a user’s hard drive until they expire or are deleted by a user. We use permanent browser cookies on our Website for log in purposes and to recover certain preferences set for use by you during repeated visits to our Website. They are set to time out within 50 months.
We use local stored objects (or “flash” cookies) to collect and store information about your preferences and navigation to, from and on our Website. Flash cookies are not managed by the same browser settings as browser cookies. To learn how you can manage your Flash cookie settings, visit the Flash player settings page on Adobe’s website at: https://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html
You also may encounter third-party cookies on our Website. Third-Party Cookies are cookies that are stored on your web browser by a party other than Picis and may gather browsing activity (such as information you have entered or choices you have made) across numerous websites that you visit and across numerous browsing sessions. These cookies also help improve how Picis’ Websites and services function and perform, customize your interaction with our Websites, and help provide more relevant messaging and marketing communications to you. Picis is currently using third-party cookies to track and analyze usage. If you wish to delete Third-Party Cookies, you should adjust your browser settings as described in the “CHOICES ABOUT HOW WE USE AND DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION” section of this Policy.
Picis also uses third-party ad targeting to display ads for Picis programs and services that may be of interest to you and to track the performance of the advertisements. This service is able to follow users to third-party websites not affiliated with Picis and displays ads when users visit those other sites. For example, our Website may use social media cookies to allow you to share content from our Website across your social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and others. If you browse the internet while signed in to a social network, that network may have the ability to collect information about the websites you are visiting, including ours.

Like most websites, as you navigate through and interact with our Website, we may passively collect information about your browsing activities using cookies and other automatic data collection technologies, such as Internet tags, or web beacons (clear gifs., pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs), and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, etc.), to improve website functionality and analytics.
- Web beacons : These are tiny graphics (sometimes called “clear GIFs” or “web pixels” with a unique identifier that is used to understand browsing activity. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are rendered invisible on web pages when you open a page.
- Social Widgets : These are buttons or icons provided by third-party social media providers that allow you to interact with those social media services when you view a web page or mobile app screen. These social widgets may collect browsing data, which may be received by the third-party that provided the widget and are controlled by third parties.
- UTM Codes : These are strings that can appear in a URL (the “Uniform Resource Locator”, which is typically the HTTP or https address entered to go to a web page) when a user moves from one web page or website to another, where the string can represent information about browsings, such as which advertisement, page, or publisher sent the user to the receiving website.
- Application SDKs : These are mobile application third-party software development kits that are embedded in Apps (and are used in many mobile applications). These app SDKs permit the collection of information about the App itself, activity in the App, and the device application on which the App is running.
The aggregate data collected by these passive technologies typically do not target any personally identifying information (PII) or other personal data, but the personal information we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies in order to improve our marketing, analytics, or website functionality.

Google Analytics has certified compliance with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce.
Other Third-Party Technologies

The information they collect about your online browsing activities over time and across different websites and other online services may be associated with your personal information and used to provide you with targeted content. We do not control these third parties’ technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about targeted content, you should contact the responsible party directly or consult their privacy policies.
