Are Cookies used on the Site?

A “cookie” is a small text file which is either stored on the Visitor’s/Authorised Customer’s hard drive or in memory until the browser is closed.  Cookies help in tracing users from page to page on an internet site.  They are generated by web-servers when the user enters an internet page and are passed to the user’s computer and stored for subsequent future access.

Cookies are used for a variety of reasons. For example, we use Cookies to obtain information about the preferences of our Visitors and the services they select.  We also use Cookies for security purposes to protect our Authorised Customers. For example, if an Authorised Customer is logged on and the site is unused for more than 10 minutes, we will automatically log the Authorised Customer off.

You are not obliged to accept a cookie and you can modify your browser so that it will not accept cookies.  However, this may affect your personalised settings and mean that we cannot identify the preferences you have selected.

How does Fairhand Visiting Physiotherapists use login information?

We use login information, including but not limited to, IP addresses, ISPs and browser types, in order to analyse trends, administer the Site, track a user’s movement and use and gather broad demographic information.

What partners or service providers have access to Personally Identifiable Information from Visitors and/or Authorised Customers on the Site?

We have entered into and will continue to enter into partnerships and other affiliations with a number of vendors.  Such vendors may have access to certain Personally Identifiable Information on a need to know basis for evaluating Authorised Customers for service eligibility.  Our privacy policy does not cover their collection or use of this information.

Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information to comply with law

We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information in order to comply with our legal obligations (including disclosure in relation to court proceedings). We will also disclose Personally Identifiable Information when reasonably necessary to protect the safety of our Visitors and Authorised Customers.

How does the Site keep Personally Identifiable Information secure?

All of our employees are familiar with our security policy and practices.  The Personally Identifiable Information of our Visitors and Authorised Customers is only accessible to a limited number of qualified employees who are given a password in order to gain access to the information.  We audit our security systems and processes on a regular basis.  Sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or social security numbers, is protected by encryption protocols, in place to protect information sent over the Internet.  While we take commercially reasonable measures to maintain a secure site, electronic communications and databases are subject to errors, tampering and break-ins. We cannot guarantee or warrant that such events will not take place and we will not be liable to Visitors or Authorised Customers for any loss suffered by them as a result of any such event occuring.

How can Visitors correct any inaccuracies in Personally Identifiable Information?

Visitors and Authorised Customers may contact us to update Personally Identifiable Information about them or to correct any inaccuracies by emailing us at info@fairhand.co.uk

Can a Visitor delete or deactivate Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Site?

We provide Visitors and Authorised Customers with a mechanism to delete/deactivate Personally Identifiable Information from the Site’s database by contacting info@fairhand.co.uk.  However, because of backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to delete a Visitor’s entry without retaining some residual information.  An individual who requests to have Personally Identifiable Information deactivated will have this information functionally deleted.  Thereafter we will not sell, transfer, or use Personally Identifiable Information relating to that individual in any way.

You have a right to request a copy of the information we hold about you and to have any inaccurate information corrected or any part or all of the data relating to you deleted and to object to the processing of your information.  In order to do so please send your request to info@fairhand.co.uk.

Consent and Privacy Policy Changes

By submitting your information you consent to the use of that information as set out in this policy (including the reference to changes in the policy) from time-to-time.

We will let our Visitors and Authorised Customers know about changes to our privacy policy by posting such changes on the Site.  However, if we are changing our privacy policy in a manner that might cause disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information that a Visitor or Authorised Customer has previously requested not be disclosed, we will contact such Visitor or Authorised Customer to allow such Visitor or Authorised Customer to prevent such disclosure.
