It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with this policy regularly to ensure that you are aware of any changes. Your continued use of this website following the posting of any such changes will constitute your acceptance of the revised privacy policy.

If you do not accept this privacy policy, you may not use this website.

If you register with the website, or if you fill in a form on the website, you may be asked to provide information about yourself (including your name and contact details).

We may also collect information about your usage of this website as you and others browse and use our website (see section on “cookies”), as well as information about you from messages you post to the website and emails or letters you send to us.

Your personal information will be used for several general purposes, including: providing information that you have requested; handling your enquiries, personalising your experience on the website, providing access to some areas of the website, and keeping you up to date with services which may be relevant to you.

We may also provide other information which we think you may find of interest, such as training events. Shropshire Doctors Cooperative Ltd may contact you by any of the means you supply to us through this website. Where relevant, you are given the opportunity to opt-out of receiving this information at the appropriate section of the website when you register your details. If you no longer wish to be contacted in the future by us, please contact us at the postal address shown on the website.

Shropshire Doctors Cooperative Ltd will retain the personal information provided by you for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes listed in this policy.

The information you provide to us will be held on our computers, or the computers of one or more of our suppliers. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this storing and processing. Shropshire Doctors Cooperative Ltd will take steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

We will also pass information on the usage of our website onto third parties, but this information and any information derived from it will only be used by that third party to analyse usage of the site and report back to Shropshire Doctors Cooperative Ltd, for example to track and report user activity on the website.

We may disclose personal information in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order. We may also disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, non-compliance with our terms and conditions of use, or as otherwise permitted or required by law and consistent with legal requirements.

We will never sell or disclose your personal data for any other purpose.

Our website utilises a standard technology called “cookies” to collect information about how our website is used, and to record your preferences in order to give you the information you need during your visit. Information gathered through cookies allow us to monitor website traffic and to personalise the content of the site for you.

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Browsers are usually set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our site will not function as effectively when viewed by you. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses. A cookie does not hold any information about which sites you visited before this one.

IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web servers so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you.

Web server log files are used to record information about our site, such as system errors. Log files do not contain any personal information or information about which other sites you have visited.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we employ security measures to protect the information provided by you, Shropshire Doctors Cooperative Ltd cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use appropriate security procedures and features aimed at preventing any unauthorised access, unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction or damage.

You are entitled to see a copy of the information that we have collected from you via this website and that we maintain. If you wish to do this, please email us at webmaster@shropdoc.co.uk and insert “data access request” as the subject heading. We may charge a small fee to meet our costs in providing you with these details.

You may ask us to make changes to the information provided by you and/or held about you, to ensure that it is accurate and kept up to date. You may also request that we cease from processing your personal information and that we delete this from our database or records. Please note that it may be impossible to completely delete your information because of back-ups and records of deletions.

We will only perform the activities outlined above to the extent that such activities will not compromise privacy, security or any other legal interests.

This website contains links to other websites. This privacy policy applies only to this website, so when you are moving to another site which collects personal information you should always read the privacy policy relating to that website.

For the avoidance of doubt, we do not pass on any personal information you have given us to any other website operators.
