This site is owned and operated by SNELL Medical Communication. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At SNELL Medical Communication, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.


Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.



SNELL Medical Communication gathers two types of information about users:

  1. Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to communicate with us through email, to email a friend, to participate in occasional surveys or to receive periodic electronic newsletters.

  2. Information SNELL Medical Communication gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our site. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does SNELL Medical Communication divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.


SNELL Medical Communication gathers user information In the following Processes:


Optional Voluntary Information
We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:

  1. “Contact Us”
    Our site users can choose to electronically correspond with us through email. The user must provide their email address and may disclose additional information pertinent to their specific inquiry. This information is used only for the purpose of corresponding with the user and addressing their specific questions. The information is not used for any other purpose.

  2. "E-mail this to a friend" Service
    Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend". The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.

  3. Electronic newsletters (Dispatches)
    Periodically, SNELL Medical Communication may offer a free electronic newsletter to users. SNELL Medical Communication gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page.

    SNELL Medical Communication may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.


Usage tracking

SNELL Medical Communication tracks user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. SNELL Medical Communication does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).


SNELL Medical Communication uses tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.



We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. ABS uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above).


You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you've set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site. However, you do need cookies to participate actively in surveys.



SNELL Medical Communication uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience on our site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users. As stated above, we may use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out periodic electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in occasional surveys. SNELL Medical Communication never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties. When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas, we do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.



SNELL Medical Communication uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help us better understand our audience's demographics. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
