(a) What data we collect;
(b) Why we collect it; and
(c) What we do with it
We are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in the UK (Registration Number: Z3231188). When you use the Application, you trust us with some information, this can be personal and also non personal. In legal terms used by the ICO we are described as the “data processor” of the personal data you provide to us. This is a legal term used to describe the person or organisation which processes personal data under the controller’s instructions. The data controller for the service provided through Inhealthcare is the healthcare provider or research conductor who has contracted with Inhealthcare to provide the service.
Inhealthcare Limited Platforms and Applications will be referred to as ‘Applications,’ ‘Services’ or ‘our Services’ throughout this document.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND WHEN DO WE COLLECT IT?
We may collect information from you to help us provide better services to all of our users from understanding what parts of our Application people use to try to make sure we’re showing you content that you’re most likely to find interesting and useful.
There are two types of information we collect Personal and Device. “Personal” information uniquely identifies a user and contains personally identifiable information provided by or obtained from users, such as your name, date of birth, email address, gender, contact number, IP Address, MAC address and Post Code. “Device” information does not, by itself, identify a user of the Application as a specific individual. Device information provides technical data, such as unique device identifiers such as mobile network information, MAC address and browser information that may provide information about your device or your interaction with our services.
(a) We collect information about you when you sign up for the Application. Also when you sign up for or opt in to receiving any specific marketing communications from us or our selected partner
(b) Technical information from and about the devices you use to access the Application and our Services when you log in / are using our Services. We collect the unique identifying codes, device model, device name, operating system / version and details of your web browser. This helps drive the content we deliver to you and can also help with the collection of diagnostic and traffic information.
(c) IP address (this is a number that identifies a specific network device on the internet and is required for your devices to communicate with websites and applications) and location data.
(d) Other forms of direct contact from you to us such as emails and phone calls, this is to help us identify you, fix issues and improve our service.
(e) Information provided by other companies who’ve obtained your permission to share information about you, for example your Health Care Institution.
(f) When using the Application we may track what content you choose to access within the Application and what time you did this. We may also collect information about you if you have consented to other organisations sharing that information with us or with organisations like us.
WE USE INFORMATION HELD ABOUT YOU FOR THE FOLLOWING PURPOSES:
(a) To provide you with our Application, which requires a certain amount of technical information to work properly.
(b) To power our security measures and services so you can safely access our Application and Services. It also lets us do things that should recognise your username and password including enabling you to reset your password should you forget it.
(c) To tell you about any changes to our Services or activities or the Application.
(d) To gather statistics about how you and other people use the Application or our Services. We analyse this data to see if what we do is interesting to people and meets their needs or whether it can be improved and if so, what changes can be made.
(e) To allow us to understand our customer base across all our businesses both online and elsewhere. We merge your details with information from other customers and other users of the Application and our Services. This is done on an anonymous and aggregated basis. We can then spot trends and factors and try to match the Application and our Services to future enhancements.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal information for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes.
You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data.
You have the right to object to our use of your personal data or ask us to remove, delete or stop using your personal information. You may ask us to restrict the use of your data if the data is not accurate or your personal information is no longer relevant.
If you want to restrict how we use your data or ask us to delete it or restrict how we use it please contact us at email@example.com
In order to confirm you are who you say you are we will need to validate your details and if the data we hold is for the purposes of providing health service we are required to confirm with the data controller whether we can stop processing the data.
WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
When you use the Application we will store certain information in server logs. That information will typically be internet protocol (IP) addresses, details of the internet service provider (ISP), clickstream data, browser type and language, viewed and exit pages and data time stamps.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted via our Application; any transition is at your own risk.
SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
The information we receive reaches us electronically originating from your device. Where it is within our control we will put measures in place to ensure that “inflight” data is secure. However, we use appropriate procedures and technical security measures to safeguard your information across all our computer networks. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is never completely secure and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of information transmitted to us.
