How we collect your data

When you visit our websites or use our services, we collect personal data. The ways we collect it can be broadly categorised into the following:

Information you provide to us directly: When you visit or use some parts of our websites and/or services we might ask you to provide personal data to us. For example, we ask for your contact information when you sign up for a free trial, respond to a job application or an email offer, participate in community forums, join us on social media, take part in training and events, contact us with questions or request support. If you don’t want to provide us with personal data, you don’t have to, but it might mean you can’t use some parts of our websites or services.

Information we collect automatically: We collect some information about you automatically when you visit our websites or use our services, like your IP address and device type. We also collect information when you navigate through our websites and services, including what pages you looked at and what links you clicked on. This information is useful for us as it helps us get a better understanding of how you’re using our websites and services so that we can continue to provide the best experience possible (e.g., by personalising the content you see).

Some of this information is collected using cookies and similar tracking technologies. If you want to find out more about the types of cookies we use, why, and how you can control them, take a look at our Cookie Policy.

Information we get from third parties: The majority of information we collect, we collect directly from you. Sometimes we might collect personal data about you from other sources, such as publicly available materials or trusted third parties like our marketing and research partners. We use this information to supplement the personal data we already hold about you, in order to better inform, personalise and improve our services, and to validate the personal data you provide.

Where we collect personal data, we’ll only process it:

External service providers and other sites

If you are directed to a website or use an application of a third party via one of Medesk's services, the conditions and privacy rules of that partner or third party apply. You are advised to read the privacy statement of this partner or third party. When accessing Medesk's services through any third party services, your login data will be processed by Medesk in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

Data security

Medesk takes all reasonable measures to protect your information, and is fully compliant to GDPR and the UK Data Protection Act requirements. Sensitive personal data, like passport data, NHS numbers, and National insurance numbers, are treated as Highly Confidential by default, and always transmitted and stored in a strongly encrypted/anonymised form. Good faith efforts are made to securely store all personal data. The relevant data is only accessible to limited Medesk staff in so far as necessary to enable them to perform their duties and guarantee the correct working of the services. Furthermore, Medesk undertakes good faith efforts to secure its systems against the loss and/or any unlawful use or processing of such data, and adopts appropriate technical and organisational measures for this purpose, having regard to the state of the art, amongst other things.

Nevertheless, Medesk cannot completely guarantee that it can prevent the unlawful gaining of access to computers or files, the distribution of viruses or unlawful programs or files through advertisements, or anything else occasioned by the provision of information to Medesk. Medesk can not warrant or represent that your personal data will be absolutely protected against loss, misuse or alteration, although the best efforts to ensure it are undertaken. If a security incident involving your personal data does take place despite all relevant controls in place, we will inform you about this incident within 24 hours and take all possible measures to limit its impact and facilitate incident recovery.

Data access and amendment and right to object

You may at all times and without any cost be informed of the data about you processed by Medesk and, if desired, have these data amended or, if possible removed within a reasonable time frame. You may also object to receiving information or specific offers from Medesk by e-mail or via other suitable communication channels. If you wish to use one of these options, you can give notice thereof in writing via an e-mail message to privacy@medesk.co.uk.

Amendment of this privacy statement

Medesk reserves the right to amend this Privacy Statement. Any amendment will be published on this website. You are advised to consult this Privacy Statement regularly, so as to ensure that you are aware of the applicable Privacy Statement changes.

Retention

The length of time we keep your personal data depends on what it is and whether we have an ongoing business need to retain it (for example, to provide you with a service you’ve requested or to comply with applicable legal, or other requirements).

We’ll retain your personal data for as long as we have a relationship with you and for a period of time afterwards where we have an ongoing business need to retain it, in accordance with our data retention policies and practices. Following that period, we’ll make sure it’s deleted or anonymised.
