Your Role as Graphic Details Advisor
Graphic Details' Site and Services are created specifically to interact directly with a panel of select physicians who have a high level of therapeutic expertise and specialized experience in certain healthcare areas ("Advisors"). These interactive sessions between Graphic Details and the Advisors will occur via the Internet and will be presented in the form of promotional interactions, market research, or other consultations. Each session will be identified as to its form, purpose, and intent.
Promotional interactions will be clearly labeled and have multiple objectives. (1) To show Advisors client promotional materials and to seek their input and opinion regarding such materials. Graphic Details will use these opinions to tailor subsequent content for each Advisor based on his/her interests and needs. Graphic Details will provide such opinions in aggregate form (see Anonymous Information below) to its clients, who may use such information to shape future promotional materials. (2) To gain an understanding of physician treatment practices, opinions about therapeutic choices, etc. Graphic Details will use Advisors' responses to tailor subsequent content and to enable us to match the needs of our Advisors with the needs of our client sponsors for future events. (3) To offer value-added services to this select panel of Advisors (eg, invitations to symposia, product samples and representative visits, or continuing medical education).
When the interaction with Advisors is of a promotional nature, all content will comply with stated package insert indications and content, and the applicable Food & Drug Administration and American Medical Association guidelines. Physician incentives for such promotional interactions will be in the form of points, which can be used to purchase medically relevant items from our online Catalog.
Market research interactions will comply with industry standard good research practices and will be clearly identified as such. Physician incentives for market research interactions may be offered in the form of cash or points towards the purchase of medically relevant items from our online Catalog.
The Graphic Details Site, by its nature, seeks and collects professional opinions from Graphic Details Advisors. Such opinions expressed on the Graphic Details Site are the opinions of the individuals giving them. Graphic Details does not assume liability for any content of any such opinion or any other information presented anywhere on the Site.
Graphic Details does not endorse or recommend any procedure, treatment, or product that may be mentioned on the Site. Your decision to rely on the information, data, opinion, or instructions found on the Site or on any linked website is solely at your own risk. Graphic Details accepts no liability for injury or damage resulting from your decision to use any product, information, opinion, or instruction found on the Site or on any website linked to the Site. Graphic Details has no control over or liability arising from any information which may be found on such websites linked to the Site.
