How we look after your personal information

01. Information Collected.

When a user registers to the AdvanceMed websites, the following information is collected

Contact details
This information is held securely on a database and is not passed on to any person or party unrelated to the management of the site. The information is accessible only to the managers of the websites.

02. Cookies.

AdvanceMed makes limited use of cookies on this website. A cookie is a small message given to your web browser by our web server. The browser stores the message, and sends the message back to the server each time you request a page from the server.

AdvanceMed uses cookies to tell us when you are a registered user and enables your computer to access the website without your having to provide us with your username and password on every web page. The cookies allow us to identify you in our database and to allow you to access the site’s pages.

03. Storing and securing your personal information.

AdvanceMed takes all reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we hold is kept secure, accurate and up-to-date. Only the managers of AdvanceMed have access to this information and are required to respect the confidentiality of personal information.

AdvanceMed utilises advanced web security methods to safeguard against unauthorised disclosures of information, including a Managed WordPress host.  However, users are reminded that the transfer of information across any media may involve a certain degree of risk and no database is completely secure from unauthorised access.

 

 

04. What happens to your information.

Information provided by users
AdvanceMed uses the information provided by users to provide user authentication (username and password) and obtain demographic information to assist in ensuring the website provides for the needs of users.

AdvanceMed may send you email updates with respect to the website or courses run by AdvanceMed. You may choose to unsubscribe from these emails at any time. If you have unsubscribed in error, contact us at [email protected]

Disclosure by users
Users are reminded that they are bound by medical privacy standards when using interactive components on the site such as discussion boards. Users should be careful not to disclose identifiable patient information and if this information is accidentally revealed, other users are bound not to reveal that information to any other person.

Links to other websites
AdvanceMed provides links on the website to other websites. These sites are not managed by AdvanceMed and we cannot accept responsibility for the contents or operators of those sites. We don’t provide any information about users to these sites, nor does any such information automatically pass to them when users link to them. Before users disclose any personal information for another site they should read the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy for that site.

05. Financial Information.

AdvanceMed does not request or collect the financial details of site users.  We use leading secure payment gateways (PayPal and Stripe) for these purposes.  The only exception to this circumstance would be when a user or potential user specifically requests an alternative payment arrangement.
