As part of the services offered at oncologyeducation.com we provide a list of medical oncologists across the globe referred to herein as the “Medical Oncologists Database” which is intended to promote the sharing of educational information about cancer and to help establish a network of oncologists. Participation in the Medical Oncologists Database is voluntary. If you do agree to participate then your name, photograph, contact information, academic interest and clinical interest, as you have provided to us, will be posted as part of the Medical Oncologists Database on our Website. You may modify or delete any information on this Database at your convenience. The Medical Oncologists Database may be viewed by persons who have registered with us to view this portion of the site. We cannot control what those people authorized to view the Medical Oncologists Database will do with the information, therefore you should take this into account in making your decision to participate in the Database. If we do become aware of any person using Medical Oncologists Database for commercial purposes or otherwise in any manner that we, at our sole discretion, deem inappropriate, we may revoke their authorization to view the Database. If you want your name removed from our database, please contact email@example.com.
