Quizzes and Surveys

Your answers from quizzes and surveys are collected:

  1. When you participate in Medword's quizzes and surveys. However, any survey or quiz information you provide, or answers you give to questions, cannot be attributed to you personally in any way. Survey information is just added to existing published survey results by a script.
Cookies
  1. Our MT Gab Forum sometimes uses cookies to save your password so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit the site. This cookie is stored on your computer and only includes information you have agreed to provide. The cookie includes the last time of your visit, so the next time you visit a computer script can display messages on the board within the number of days you set in your preferences as a registered member. Your preferences may be edited at any time. If you no longer want to be a registered member, just e-mail us and we will delete your user name. The site administrator only has access to your password and registration information in order to send this information to you if you forget it.

  2. We also use cookies for other purposes. Cookies are also used so quiz and survey respondents cannot complete a given survey more than once and thereby skew the results of the survey. This kind of cookie does not give information on you personally, your computer, your e-mail, or name. It is stored on your computer's hard drive. We do not know the contents of this cookie. The fact that you may have already participated in a survey is only discovered by a script which in turn then tells you that you have already participated. You may view results of surveys without taking part in them and no cookie will be generated.

  3. Most browsers allow three options for handling cookies:
  • Accept all cookies
  • Warn before accepting a cookie
  • Reject all cookies

If your browser is set to "reject all cookies" you will not be able to participate in the quizzes or surveys and your user preferences at MT Gab will not be stored on your computer.
Advertisers
  1. We sometimes use an outside ad company to display ads on our site. There also may be special links hidden in some text and product links by third parties. These ads or links may generate cookies that give the advertiser only general information, usually about which of Medword's pages was accessed. While we may use cookies in other parts of our web site, cookies received with banner ads are collected by an ad company, and we do not have access to that information. The banners Medword might display are part of a cooperative venture with reputable companies such as Google.com or Amazon.com.
Personal Information
  1. This web site does not request any personal information or collect any information that personally identifies you or allows you to be personally contacted unless you explicitly agree.
External Links
  1. The Medword site contains links to many other sites. Medword is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites. Any links reported to Medword as being socially, ethically, or morally unacceptable will be reviewed by Medword and may be left as a link or removed as a link at the sole discretion of Medword. It is Medword's intention to only link to sites with generally socially acceptable content, understanding that "socially acceptable content" is a very general term open to many interpretations. In each case, Medword will be the sole and exclusive arbiter or interpreter of what is acceptable unless limited by applicable law.
Special Relationships
  1. Medword receives commissions, finder's fees, and other revenue by reselling books, software, videos, and other products sold for companies and other partners found on our site who pay Medword for referrals to their site. If you click on one of these links and buy products or services from them, you are bound by that seller's privacy policy, return policy, guarantees, and other warranties. These companies may have their own privacy policies and statements, separate and apart from Medword's, and you may want to review them before giving any personal or sensitive information to them.

  2. Medword has been a member of various reliability programs. These programs allow buyers a means of verifying Medword's reliability as a seller of goods on the Internet. Both of the aforementioned monitoring parties allow you to report on Medword indirectly. Please be aware that Medword's participation in these programs does not constitute an endorsement of products we may sell.

Public Forums - The MT Gab Medical Transcription Bulletin Board
  1. This site makes chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose any personal information.

  2. To be allowed to post replies and new topics on Medword's MT Gab Forum you must register. There is no registration requirement to read messages only. If you do want to become a registered user of our MT Gab Forum, it is free, but you will be required to give your legitimate active e-mail address that can be verified. Other information at time of registration is voluntary and is so marked on the form. The site administrator does have access to your password to resend it in case you forget it.
