How we use your personal information
This privacy notice is to let you know how Eakin Healthcare promise to look after your personal information. This includes what you tell us about yourself, what we learn by having you as a customer, and the choices you give us about what marketing you want us to send you. This notice explains how we do this and tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.
Users contacting this website and/or its owners do so at their own discretion and provide any such personal details requested at their own risk. Your personal information is kept private and stored securely until a time it is no longer required or has no use, as detailed in the General Data Protection Regulation 2018
Our Privacy Promise
- To keep your data safe and private
- Not to sell your data
How the law protects you
As well as our Privacy Promise, your privacy is protected by law. This section explains how that works.
Data Protection law says that we are allowed to use personal information only if we have a proper reason to do so. This includes sharing it outside of eakin Healthcare. The law says we must have one or more of these reasons:
- To fulfil a contract we have with you, or
- When it is our legal duty, or
- When it is in our legitimate interest, or
- When you consent to it
A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. But even then, it must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you.
Where we collect personal information from
- When you apply for our products and services
- When you talk to us on the phone
- When you use our websites, mobile device apps, web chat
- In emails and letters
- In customer surveys
- If you take part in our competitions or promotions
If we do collect personal data through our website, we’ll be upfront about this. We’ll make it clear when we collect personal information and we’ll explain what we intend to do with it.
When you visit our website, we use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out such things as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way that does not directly identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. We use the information to report on visitor numbers, and to make improvements to our service.
This information is collected only if visitors opt in. The information collected is classed as personal data because Google assigns a unique identifier to each visitor. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
Who we share your personal information with
- Operational companies such as delivery couriers.
- Appointed distributor in the country in which you live.
- Direct marketing companies who help us manage our electronic communications with you.
Here’s the policy we apply to those organisations to keep your data safe and protect your privacy:
- We provide only the information they need to perform their specific services.
- They may only use your data for the exact purposes we specify in our contract with them.
- We work closely with them to ensure that your privacy is respected and protected at all times.
Sharing your data with third parties for their own purposes
We may also be required to disclose your personal data to the police or other enforcement, regulatory or Government bodies, in your country of origin or elsewhere, upon a valid request to do so. These requests are assessed on a case-by-case basis and take the privacy of our customers into consideration.
For further information please contact our Data Protection Office using the contact information shown in the How to get a copy of your personal information section.
We may use your personal information to tell you about relevant business information, products and offers. This is what we mean when we talk about ‘marketing’.
The personal information we have for you is made up of what you tell us, and data we collect when you use our services.
We study this to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, may be relevant for you.
We can only use your personal information to send you marketing messages if we have either your consent or a ‘legitimate interest’. That is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. It must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you.
You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages by contacting us at any time.
We may ask you to confirm or update your choices, if there are changes in the law, regulation, or the structure of our business.
If you change your mind you can update your choices at any time by contacting us.
