When you register a Kadusis account and become a Kadusis member, we require you to provide certain personal information that varies depending on whether we have already created a professional profile for you, as described in the “Kadusis Profiles and Member Accounts” section below. If you already have a profile, we ask that you verify the information, and if you do not, we ask that you provide us some of the information typically included in a Kadusis profile. All Kadusis members must provide their email address, and healthcare professionals are required to provide certain information about their education, such as school attended, year of graduation, specialty, certifications and other credentials.
Registering Kadusis users also have the option to provide additional information to include in their profile, including subspecialty, clinical and professional interests, languages spoken at the office, profile photo, medical group, hospital affiliations, internship, residency program, fellowships, employment history, speaking engagements, publications, memberships and board certifications. You may choose to update or supplement the information you have provided us at any time as described in the “Updating Your Account Information” section below.
We collect content and information that you submit to the Service (and information about you may be provided by other Kadusis members or 3rd parties), including comments, searches, contacts, schedule details, your resume, survey responses, creative submissions, references and member support requests.
The Services include secure communication tools that enable members to communicate with each other members which are most often healthcare professionals’ clients who could represent an organization like a hospital, senior living center, pharmacy, private practice or even an individual seeking personal care for themselves or a family member. You are not required to respond to any messaged from clients and can block such communications using settings in your Kadusis dashboard.
As part of accepting a contract with a client, you may encounter work with patients on behalf of the client of the client themselves may be in your care. If you act as or on behalf of a “covered entity” under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and choose to transmit protected health information subject to HIPAA in connection with your use of a Kadusis secure communication tool, this information will be handled in accordance with the Kadusis Terms of Service.
The use of these technologies helps us serve you better by understanding what jobs you’re interested in, tracking trends, measuring the effectiveness of our content, including ads, and saving your preferences. For information about how you can manage your cookie preferences, refer to the “Choices Regarding Personal Information” section, below.
We do not collect precise location information unless you elect to enable location services on your device, but we do receive information about your general location at a city or zip code level through your computer’s IP address and your mobile device. If you opt in with your home residence, this provides our system the ability to give you distances and estimates of commuting times between jobs which you may choose to engage with. We do not share your personal address, mobile telephone or email with anyone.
We collect information from third party sources, including government agencies, publicly available databases, professional associations, publications, employers, our business partners, service providers, customers, and other Kadusis members, some of which we may add to your professional profile as described in the “Kadusis Profiles and Member Accounts” section, below. For example, we may use third party sources to obtain your National Provider Identifier (NPI) number, specialty, office address, phone and fax numbers, educational background, certifications, professional group affiliations, your publications and other professional achievements. We also may obtain email addresses that we use to promote the Service to members and potential members, and prescribing and claims data that we may use to personalize content, including how we display potential jobs, news in the newsfeed and advertising. All of these are an attempt to make your experience more relevant and useful.
Except as otherwise provided herein, we may use the personal information we collect about you for the following business and commercial purposes:
We use your information to create and update your professional profile, which is publicly viewable by default, regardless of whether you have registered a Kadusis account, to create and maintain your Kadusis member account if you choose to register, to show you jobs which are related to your professional and specialty, to allow clients seeking to contract with qualified healthcare professionals a way to view your profile and to respond to your inquiries and requests.
We use your information to communicate with you about the Service. These communications may contain information about your professional connections, professional opportunities, conferences and other events (including whether your colleagues plan to attend, as informed by the event sponsor), relevant editorial content, and marketing about jobs and companies, products and services of Kadusis and our clients, customers and advertisers. These communications may be sent through a variety of channels, including on-site or in-app notifications, desktop push notifications and email.
We use your information to personalize the Services including content, job opportunities, marketing messages, and advertising served to you on our sites and third-party sites, and to generally enhance your Kadusis experience. For example, we tailor your newsfeed to focus on content relevant to your practice, specialty, location and inferred interests based on your profile and how you engage with the Services. We use your information to target (and measure the performance of) advertising and other content sponsored by third parties, including clients that seek to contract with healthcare professionals, advertisers such as pharmaceutical companies promoting their products and therapies, and hospitals promoting their services. For example, if you are an oncologist or have demonstrated an interest in oncology content, you may see jobs for oncologists, oncology professionals and opportunities related to that specialty including advertisements targeted to oncologists or oncology-interested members. Jobs shall be clearly labeled as jobs Advertising will be identified as an “Advertisement,” “Sponsored,” “Promoted” or some similar designation indicating that the content is promotional and has been selected by the third-party sponsor.

If you do not want your Kadusis profile to be publicly viewable or to become a Kadusis member, you may request that that we remove your public profile as explained in the “Choices Regarding Personal Information” section below. Note that any personal information you elect to share within Kadusis is visible to Kadusis members including other healthcare professionals that are registered as well as clients who represent organizations such as hospitals, senior living facilities, pharmacies and other organizations.

They use these tools to select members that may be interested in their jobs, their information and other opportunities, including events, clinical trials, innovative therapies, and other clinical solutions, and we communicate their messages to the selected Kadusis members on their behalf. If your employer or another third party purchases a paid Service from Kadusis for your use and you elect to use that Service, this third party will have the right to control access to and obtain information about your use of the paid Service. We may also provide our commercial clients with limited member information in connection with our audience development and performance reporting for their advertising and other sponsored content programs delivered through the Service. When you engage with sponsored content, we may share with the sponsor and its agency limited information from your Kadusis profile such as your name, specialty, NPI number and zip code, along with details about the engagement such as whether you viewed and or interacted with an advertisement.

Also, if you provide us information about an adverse event relating to a pharmaceutical product or medical device, we may be required to report this information along with your contact information to the manufacturer so it can comply with legally required reporting obligations.
We may access, preserve, and share your information if we determine it is reasonably necessary or appropriate to investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected fraudulent, harmful, unethical or illegal activities, or any violation of our Terms of Service or to protect and defend the legal rights, safety, and property of Kadusis, our employees, agents and contractors (including to enforce our agreements) or in connection with any safety or security concerns, including the personal safety of our users and the public.

We and our partners also use pixel tags, often in conjunction with cookies.

We also include pixel tags in our emails to inform us whether the recipient has opened those emails and/or clicked on links in those emails.
Our Services may contain links to third-party sites. Any access to and use of such linked sites is not governed by this policy, but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third-party sites, which we encourage you to read.

We employ technical, administrative and physical safeguards designed to protect your personal information. However, no security measure can guarantee security and that data will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.

You can learn more about managing your preferences for interest-based ads online, particularly for many third-party advertising networks, by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance. Note that even if you opt-out from interest-based advertising through these organizations’ tools, cookies may still be used to collect data for purposes other than interest-based advertising, including analytics. Also, you will still see ads, but they will not be targeted based upon the information collected through these tracking technologies. When using the preferences and opt-out settings described above, you will need to apply them on every device and on every browser from which you wish to opt-out. Because some of these settings rely on a cookie that stores your preferences, if you delete or clear your browser’s cookies, you may need to opt-out again. You can also control interest-based advertising on your mobile device by enabling the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting on your iOS device or “Opt out of Ads Personalization” on your Android devices.
Some Web browsers incorporate a "Do Not Track" feature that signals to websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Each browser communicates "Do Not Track" signals to websites differently, making it unworkable to honor each and every request correctly. We do not respond to "Do Not Track" signals at this time.
