Collection of your Personal Information
ASCCP may collect personally identifiable information. If you purchase ASCCP's products and services, we collect billing and credit card information at the time of payment, but our system does not retain credit card information after purchase. This information is used to complete the purchase transaction. ASCCP may also collect anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your gender. We may gather additional personal or non-personal information in the future.
Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by ASCCP. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the ASCCP website.
ASCCP encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from ASCCP so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. ASCCP is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the ASCCP website.

No ads during the review
ASCCP informs all potential advertisers that the inclusion of an advertisement in any publication does not constitute an approval or endorsement by the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology of the advertised products or services. Furthermore, advertisers must not, in any collateral advertisement or promotional material, include the fact that a product or service is advertised, endorsed or mentioned in an ASCCP publication.
ASCCP will refuse any advertisement that we believe is incompatible to our mission.
Advertisements may not include endorsements or recommendations by individual doctors or general statements that a product is recommended by doctors.
Any pharmaceutical or medical devices featured in advertisements must be approved by the FDA for the specific use and indication tor which they are advertised.
Any claim that a product or service will have a beneficial effect on the user's health be supported by peer-reviewed studies.
ASCCP may require the advertiser to submit such studies before approval may be granted.
Advertisements must be readily distinguishable from editorial content. If the distinction is unclear, the word "advertisement"' must be added.
Advertisements for the following categories of products and services are prohibited (ASCCP may make additions to this list at any time, in its sole discretion):
Products containing tobacco
Ultrasounds for keepsake other non-medical purposes
Home Doppler devices
