Privacy Policy

F.A. Davis is  committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect about you to collect and ship orders.  Please read on for more details about our privacy policy. What information do we collect? How do we use it?

- When you order from our websites (, DavisPlus, Medical Language Lab, Davis Edge, Medical Coding Lav,, Calculating Dosages Online, Dental Care Decisions, Kinesiology in Action; or the Davis websites), we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status.

- When you sign up for our email newsletter, we need only an e-mail address--which we use to send the information you requested.

- When you enter a contest or other promotional feature, we may ask for your name, address, and e-mail address so we can administer the contest and notify winners.

- When you register as a Faculty Member on Davis websites, your registration information (i.e., your e-mail address and nickname) will not disclose your information, and your information will remain fully protected by F.A. Davis's privacy policy.

Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important functionality changes to the websites, new web services, and special offers we think you'll find valuable. 

How does protect customer information? 

When you place orders or access your account information, we offer the use of a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, all of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized access.  We do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. We may choose to do so in the future with trustworthy third parties, but you can tell us not to by sending a blank e-mail message to
