Purposes and Use of Information We Collect from You

This Privacy Notice explains the collection and use of Personally Identifiable Information about you through the NIH CC Radiology Imaging Library on the DCRI Website.

The information collected reflects the minimum necessary to accomplish the purpose of uploading digital images to the CC Radiology Imaging Library.

By using the third-party BOX Website to send images to the NIH CC Radiology Imaging Library, you may be providing nongovernmental third-parties with access to sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Please note that by voluntarily providing your information and uploading images into this site, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice and consent to the collection, storage, and use of personal information about you as described in this Notice. Use of this service is optional.

Security of Information

At all times, security maintenance and administration is an important part of website operations and maintenance. BOX maintains physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to comply with federal standards to guard your nonpublic personal information. The system uses appropriate administrative, technical and physical controls for protection of information contained therein and is protected by multiple firewalls, vulnerability scanning, and advanced encryption technology.
