FOR NATIONAL BOARD OF MEDICAL EXAMINERS® MEDICAL SCHOOL PORTAL
We collect personal information in various ways to better serve you. Such information may be used to allow you to order or schedule services or materials, to receive support for the services we provide, to allow us to contact you to provide those services, to complete delivery of services, for billing purposes, and to protect you and NBME from fraudulent transactions. We also use the information we collect to tailor and improve your experience while using the MSP.
In order to access the MSP you will have an SSO account with a user ID and personalized password of your choosing. This single [SSO] account with user ID and password can be used to access the MSP located at https://msportal.nbme.org. When you first create an SSO user ID and password, we also collect certain personally identifiable information such as your name and e-mail address. Your e-mail address will be used to send confirmations and other information related to your account.
Once you access the MSP, we may also collect additional personally identifiable information through your use of the MSP. Such personally identifiable information may include domain names, addresses and routing information; your name and phone number; your mailing and/or billing addresses; and other relevant data that will better allow us to provide information and/or services related to your needs.
In addition to the personally identifiable information described above, we also collect Aggregate Information from many users about use of the MSP, such as number of visits and pages visited on the MSP, and the overall duration of time spent on the MSP. The information we collect depends in large part upon the needs of your account and what services and features you use on the MSP. We do not disclose this information to third parties.
We do not sell to unaffiliated third parties information that identifies you personally or makes it possible for such third parties to contact you directly without your consent.
We may distribute the personally identifiable information that you submit to us, both internally within our organization and to our agents and affiliates as necessary for purposes related to our services. While we endeavor to maintain the confidentiality of all material submitted that is identified as confidential by the submitter, we cannot accept, and hereby expressly disclaim, any liability from losses relating to the unauthorized disclosure or interception via the Internet of any information that you submit.
NBME also may provide personally identifiable information to certain third parties that have entered into contracts with us to provide certain services. We may also use this information to help us manage programs and services that may be of interest to you.
Please also note that all of your activities on the MSP are traceable through your SSO account. If you use your name as part of your SSO account or User ID, your name may be available to third parties that contract with us to provide certain services after enrollment.
In the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business and assets, we reserve the right to transfer your personally identifiable information in connection with that transaction. In such event, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that your personally identifiable information remains protected.
NBME takes physical, electronic and managerial precautions in our efforts to prevent unauthorized access and use of any data you send us. We recommend that when you access the MSP, you do so from a secure browser. We also recommend that passwords used to access the MSP be a unique combination of letters and numbers in order to protect your information.

When you click on any links or banners on the MSP that take you to third-party web sites, you will be subject to the third parties' privacy policies.
