We collect information about you when you fill in any of the forms on our website for example, in sending an inquiry, filling in a survey, giving feedback etc. Website usage information is collected using cookies.
When submitting forms or using the applications we provide for mobile devices or using the website or using the physician/ patient portal on the website, we use a third-party software provider for automated data collection and processing purposes. They will not use your data for any purposes and will only hold the data in line with our policy on data retention and as part of the services we provide to you.
Cookies are text files put on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information. This information is then used to track visitor use of the website and to create statistical reports on website activity.
You can set your browser not to accept cookies. Please note in a few cases some of our website features may not function because of this.
Analytics – e.g. how visitors use our website
We use Google Analytics to store information about how visitors use our website so that we may make improvements and give visitors a better user experience.
Google Analytics is a third-party information storage system that records information about the pages you visit, the length of time you were on specific pages and the website in general, how you arrived at the site and what you clicked on when you were there. These cookies do not store any personal information about you eg name, address etc. and we do not share the data.
An IP or Internet Protocol Address is a unique numerical address assigned to a computer as it logs on to the internet. Telephys does not have access to any personal identifiable information and we would never seek this information. Your IP address is logged when visiting our site, but our analytic software only uses this information to track how many visitors we have from particular regions.
Internet Based Advertising
We use the Internet, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter and other services for marketing of our services and products. As such there are tracking codes installed on our website so that we can manage the effectiveness of these marketing campaigns. We do not store any personal data within this type of tracking.
How will we use the information about you and why?
We take your privacy seriously and will only use your personal information to provide the Services you have requested from us. We will only use this information subject to your instructions, data protection law and our duty of confidentiality.
For Business to Consumer Clients and Contacts our lawful reason for processing your personal information will be “A contract with the individual” e.g. to supply goods and services you have requested through our website, applications and portal. This also includes steps taken at your request before entering into a contract.
Our work for you may require us to pass your information to our third-party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organizations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing the Services to you on our behalf. However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the Services and we have contracts in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes.
We collect information on our website to process your enquiry, give advice based on survey data and improve our services. If you agree, we will also use this information to share updates with you about our services which we believe may be of interest to you.
We will not share your information for marketing purposes with companies so that they may offer you their products and services.
Transferring your information outside of Europe
As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you give to us may be held in or transferred to countries outside the European Union (“EU”), including the USA. For example, some of our third-party providers are and may be located outside of the EU. Where this is the case, we will take steps to make sure the right security measures are taken so that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this policy. By submitting your personal data, you’re agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. Where our third-party suppliers are in the USA we have ensured that their services fall under the “Privacy Shield” whereby participating companies are deemed to have adequate protection and therefore facilitate the transfer of information from the EU to the US.
If you use our services while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU to give you those services.
Security precautions in place about data collected
When you give us personal information, we take steps to make sure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive information (such as credit or debit card details) is encrypted and protected.
Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are sent normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
We may analyze your personal information to create a profile of your history, conditions and other information so that we can contact you with information relevant to you. We may make use of extra information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively.
We would like to send you information about our services which may be of interest to you. If you have consented to receive marketing, you may opt out at any point as set out below.
You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes. To opt out please email: email@example.com.
