It is MDRT’s policy not to share, sell or rent your personal information with third parties. We may share your personal information as follows:

Third Parties Designated by You. We may share your personal information with third parties you have indicated as your affiliated company, agency or broker dealer.

Our Service Providers. MDRT works with various organizations and individuals to help provide the Services to you (“Service Providers“), such as website and data hosting companies and companies providing analytics information, like Google Analytics. We may share your personal information with our Service Providers for the purpose of providing the Services. The information we share to our Service Providers may include both information you provide to us and information we collect about you, including Personal Data and information from data collection tools like cookies, web beacons, log files, Unique Identifiers, and location data. MDRT takes reasonable steps to ensure that our Service Providers are obligated to reasonably protect your information on MDRT’s behalf. If MDRT becomes aware that a Service Provider is using or disclosing information improperly, we will take commercially reasonable steps to end or correct such improper use or disclosure.

Business Transactions. MDRT may purchase other businesses or their assets, sell our business assets, or be involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets (a “Business Transaction”). Your information, including Personal Data, may be among assets sold or transferred as part of a Business Transaction.

Other Disclosures.

When we use the term “anonymous data,” we are referring to data and information that does not permit you to be identified or identifiable, either alone or when combined with any other information available to a third party.

We may create anonymous data from the personal data we receive about you and other individuals whose personal data we collect. Anonymous data might include analytics information and information collected by us using cookies. We make personal data into anonymous data by excluding information, such as your name, that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We use this anonymous data to analyze usage patterns in order to make improvements to MDRT’s websites and mobile applications.

We will only retain your personal data as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.


Your Rights and Choices Regarding Your Information. Relevant data protection laws provide you certain rights regarding the protection of your data, including:

More information about your rights relating to MDRT and the Services is provided via this Policy. MDRT welcomes you to contact us regarding the information we have collected about you, including regarding the nature and accuracy of the data that has been collected about you, to request an update, modification, or deletion of your information, to opt-out of certain Services uses of your information, or to withdraw any consent you may have granted to MDRT.

Access. You can access the information we hold about you at any time by viewing your profile on or by contacting us directly.

Amend. You can also contact us to update or correct any inaccuracies in your personal information.

Opt-out. You can contact us any time to opt-out of (a) MDRT promotional communications or (b) any new processing of your personal information that we may carry out beyond the original purpose. Please note that your use of some of the services found on our websites or apps may be ineffective upon opt-out. However, please note you may not opt-out of Services-related communications, such as account verification, changes or updates to features of the Services, or technical and security notices.

Please note requests to delete or remove your information do not necessarily ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information posted, and removed information may persist in backup copies indefinitely.

We may store the information we collect about you indefinitely, or as otherwise required by law. Following termination or deactivation of a MDRT Account, MDRT may retain your information and content for a commercially reasonable time for backup, archival, and audit purposes.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us. In your request, please make clear (a) what personal information is concerned, and (b) which of the above rights you would like to enforce. For your protection, we may only implement requests with respect to the personal information associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable.

Please note that we may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting the change or deletion unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (for example, for regulatory purposes).

Do Not Track. MDRT does not currently employ a process for automatically responding to “Do Not Track” (DNT) signals sent by web browsers, mobile devices, or other mechanisms. Per industry standards, third parties may be able to collect information, including Personal Data, about your online activities over time and across different websites or online services when you use Services. You may opt out of online behavioral ads at You also may limit certain tracking by disabling cookies in your web browser.

Information Security. MDRT takes reasonable efforts to secure and protect the privacy, accuracy, and reliability of your information and to protect it from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. MDRT implements security measures as we deem appropriate and consistent with industry standards. As no data security protocol is impenetrable, MDRT cannot guarantee the security of our systems or databases, nor can we guarantee that personal information we collect about you will not be breached, intercepted, destroyed, accessed, or otherwise disclosed without authorization. Accordingly, any information you transfer to or from Services is provided at your own risk.

Please do your part to help us keep your information secure. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and MDRT account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or MDRT account. MDRT specifically reserves the right to terminate your access to the Services and any contract you have with MDRT related to the Services in the event it learns or suspects you have disclosed your MDRT account or password information to an unauthorized third party.


Transfer And Storage Of Your Information. Please note information MDRT collects about you may be transferred, processed and/or accessed by us in the United States, or another country where we, or our Service Providers operate. Please be aware Personal Data may be transferred to, and maintained on, computers located outside of your state or country where privacy laws may differ from and may not be as protective as those where you live. If you are located outside the United States and choose to allow us to collect information about you, please be aware that MDRT may transfer your Personal Data to the United States and process and store it there.

If you are located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information to a country or jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction, as disclosed in this Privacy Policy.
