Therapydia is an online Physical Therapy community providing tools that empower therapists to improve their quality of care and connect with patients, doctors and colleagues in a secure setting.
Your privacy and the security of the Personal Information you provide on our Site are our highest priorities. We use industry standard security and encryption with hosting redundancy at two locations in the US to provide continuous access to our service and to protect your Personal Information.
1. Personal Information Collection
Publically Available Information Collected
Therapydia has built a database of Physical Therapist information from publically available databases to provide a directory of therapists and facilitate connections between therapists. When registering for the site you will verify the information that we have collected and correct any information that might be out of date while completing your profile.
To become a member of Therapydia, you will search for and claim your pre-existing Therapydia profile, or you can create a profile by entering the required information: first name, last name, city, state, zip code, email address and password. Your email address will not be displayed publically on the Site and we will use it only to send you notifications and information you request. You can opt to not to receive these updates at any time.
The following optional information may also be entered to complete your Therapydia profile: address, occupation, specialty, degree type, states of professional licensure, workplace information, college you received your professional degree from and year of graduation, insurance providers accepted, biography, blog information, and social account information. Some of this information will already be included in your profile but you will be asked to verify that the information is correct, and update it where appropriate.
All of the information that you voluntarily provide will be included in your profile, which is accessible to anyone browsing the Therapydia site, except for your email address and password.
Right to Access and Modifying Your Personal Information
You have a right to access, modify, correct and eliminate the data about you that has been collected pursuant to your decision to become a User. We take your rights seriously and encourage you to use them if you deem this to be appropriate. You may exercise these rights by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting us at:

2. Personal Information Use
Therapydia is a Physical Therapy community, enabling PTs to connect with one another. The information you choose to provide on our service is used to help you describe yourself to other Users and site visitors. Other information that does not personally identify you as an individual is collected by Therapydia from Users (such as, for example, patterns of utilization) and is exclusively owned by Therapydia. This information can be utilized by Therapydia in such manner as Therapydia, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate.
Site Usage Tracking
Log Files, IP Addresses and Device Information
When you visit the Therapydia website from another site we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave Therapydia. Therapydia also receives the internet protocol (“IP”) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, email patterns, mobile device operating system (if you are accessing Therapydia using a mobile device), as well as the name of your ISP or your mobile carrier. We use this information to analyze overall trends to help improve the service. The linkage between your IP address and your personally identifiable information is not shared with any third parties.

Sharing Information with Third Parties
Therapydia takes the privacy of Users very seriously. We do not sell, rent, or otherwise provide your private information to third parties for marketing or other purposes. We may provide aggregated anonymous data about the usage of our services to third parties for such purposes as we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate, including to prospective investors in Therapydia. We may segment our Users by specialty or geographic location. We may aggregate or provide information from your public profile. If you would like to be excluded from the aggregated research or products based upon aggregated data about our Users’ activities on the site, please email email@example.com.
We use your information, including the addresses you import through our contact importers, to make suggestions to you and other users on Therapydia. To help your friends find you, we allow other users to use contact information they have about you, such as your email address, to find you, including through contact importers.
We offer search services to help you find information we have collected about you and to and learn more about other Users (for example, you can search for Users with particular expertise, or that you may know from college).
It is possible that we may need to disclose Personal Information when required by law, such as responses to civil or criminal subpoenas, or other requests by law enforcement personnel. We will disclose such information when we have a good-faith belief that it is necessary to comply with a court order, ongoing judicial proceeding, subpoena, or other legal process or request to Therapydia brought in any country throughout the world, or to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
Disclosures to Others
We may also disclose your personal and other information you provide, to another third party as part of a reorganization or a sale of the assets of Therapydia. Any third party to which we transfer or sell Therapydia’s assets will have the right to continue to use the personal and other information that you provide to us.

4. Your Obligations
