THMED websites are meant for use in the United State of America and are not intended to subject THMED to jurisdiction in any country outside of the United States. Privacy rules vary from country to country. THMED’s principal place of business is located in Dallas County, State of Texas. THMED and all visitors to THMED websites agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in the State of Texas, of all disputes concerning THMED websites and/or any Personal Information provided to THMED.

Your security is a priority for us. We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website or by phone, your information is protected both online and offline.
When you send in your personal information (address, contact information, resume, specialty etc.) it is only granted access to THMED employees who may have a specific career or job that might fit your needs. For our locum tenens sector, we will gather licensure, board certification, malpractice, insurance and other credentialing documentation, but only through the application process.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as tax id, social security information), that data is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure and passcode protected environment. While we have made a great effort to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.
The “Communities” portal is hosted by Salesforce (“SFDC”). When you submit forms or upload documents to this portal, the information is stored and transferred through Salesforce services. You can read Salesforce compliance and security information here. With regard to the processing of personal data, THMED is the Controller, SFDC is the Processor and SFDC or members of the SFDC Group will engage sub-processors. In the role of processor, Salesforce and members of SFDC group will direct all requests for personal information it receives directly to THMED. SFDC will assist THMED as needed to retreive any personal information for the customer. An effective and efficient performance of Salesforce’s services requires the use of Sub-processors. These Sub-processors can include affiliates of Salesforce as well as third party organizations. Salesforce’s use of Sub-processors may require the transfer of Customer Data to Sub-processors for purposes like hosting Customer Data, providing customer support, and ensuring the services are working properly. As described in the DPA, Salesforce takes responsibility for the actions of its Sub-processors. Up-to-date information about the hosting locations for each service that Salesforce offers and the identities and the locations of Sub-processors can be found in the applicable Infrastructure and Sub-processor Documentation (available here by selecting the relevant service).
