We store information about your performance on individual questions so we can provide you with an accurate summary of your performance. We also collect aggregate statistics about all questions and modules that subscribers engage with.
Like most websites, we also store information through the use of software that may be transparent to users. For example, we may log your IP address and general information about your browser.
Like millions of other websites, we use Google Analytics to track visitors to the site. Google Analytics is a piece of software which gathers data about our users (you).
Google Analytics records the website you came from to get here, how long you stay for, what kind of computer you're using and many more metrics and shares this with Revise Radiology. All activity on Revise Radiology falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.

We do not share your personal information with outside parties.
We may share anonymous aggregate statistics with outside parties, such as how many users subscribe to our services.

In the future, we may sell to, buy, merge with, or partner with other businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.
We implement a variety of security measures to help keep your information secure.
For example, all pages are served over HTTPS. Payment information is never captured nor stored on our servers, this is handled by a secure third-party company called Stripe. We do not store your actual password, they are hashed instead using advanced cryptographic methods. At the time of writing we use bcrypt but we may upgrade this in the future.
