Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Please take a few minutes to review this policy.

Privacy

We will make every effort to protect your privacy by adopting a consistently high level of website security and by adhering to strict policies on how we store and use personal information.

By submitting your information, you consent to the use of that information as set out in this policy. You should review this policy regularly, to note any changes as to how we collect and use personal information. If we make any changes to our privacy policy, we will post the revisions on our site.

Once you start using this website, we may track and keep a record of the pages you visit. We collect this data from groups of users to get a sense of how people are using our sites and which content and areas are most popular. This helps us to improve our website.

We may also use your data to monitor for any unauthorised use of our website.

Marketing

If you have opted to receive marketing emails from DoctorCPD, you may occasionally be sent emails by us, but your personal details will never be passed to a third party. For users who choose to receive marketing emails from DoctorCPD, through links provided in these emails, we may send information about website use to a third party email marketing provider. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our email marketing campaigns and guides us in planning future email campaigns.

 

Your personal data

The personal data that you enter on this website including your registration details, learning improvement notes, and other such information, is considered private. Our IT staff has access to it in order to fix problems and maintain the site. However, we do not read this information unless necessary, and we will not release it to other people or organisations, without your prior consent. However, we reserve the right to release anonymised group data to third parties related to the use of specific modules.

The learning modules you complete (including obtaining CPD certificates) are considered private. We do not read this information unless necessary, and will not release it to other people or organisations, without your prior consent.

As you browse the website, we collect information about your use of the site - essentially the pages you have visited and how long you stay online. Each time you use the internet, an IP address is assigned to your computer via the internet service provider. This number may either be the same or different each time. Each time your computer requests information from our website, we log your IP address on our server and may log operating systems and browser types for system administration and to report aggregate information. We may use this information to monitor website traffic and use. Our web server collects certain information such as IP address, host names, domain name, time and date information as requested, the browser version and platform when it is requested, and a record of which pages have been requested. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence and use it to contact you in response and/or to update our records.

We may use all information to enforce our legal rights and protect against unauthorised access, use, activity and/or copying, either personally or via third party contractors and advisors.

 

Usage data

Other than to assist us in fulfilling our obligations to you (where these exist), on some occasions we may use the information provided to produce aggregate statistics in relation to pages being accessed. We may also use it to monitor usage patterns on the website in order to improve navigation and design features to help you to access information more easily. This information is provided to us as daily log files. In order to help us to develop the website and our services, we may provide such aggregate information to third parties. The statistics, however, will not include any information that can be used to identify any individual.

We may contact you to notify you about changes to our service. We also may send you non-marketing emails for the purpose of inviting you to partake in surveys or market research which we conduct or which third parties are conducting.

We keep (including via our contractors) your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil our obligations to you and to protect our legal interests or as otherwise stated to you when such data is collected.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer and contains text information. Cookies are used to support a number of functions that are available on the DoctorCPD website. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies do not damage your system. You can reset your browser so as to refuse any cookie or to alert you to when a cookie is being sent but if you choose not to accept cookies the service may not work as effectively for you.

Third party companies advertising on DoctorCPD may also use cookies to keep track of the number of times an advertisement has been viewed, and to improve the relevance of advertisements that are displayed.

Password protection

We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated securely by us and by our contractors, in accordance with this privacy policy. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Please do not share your password(s) with anyone.

We understand that the security of your information is important to you. We also understand that our continued success as an internet publisher relies on our ability to communicate with you in a secure manner. We adhere to the highest standards of decency, fairness, and integrity in our operations. However, despite our best efforts, and the best efforts of other firms, total security does not exist on the internet, or anywhere else. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not totally secure. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot completely prevent unauthorised access of the data that is transmitted by our website. Hence, all data transmission is ultimately at your own risk.

You should not share your user name and password with other people.

Feedback

Please contact us if any of the data we hold about you becomes inaccurate and if you have any queries or concerns about the data we are holding about you.

Also, we welcome your feedback about what you like or don't like about our website. Your feedback is stored on a secure internal system that allows the appropriate person to respond to you. Please contact us through our Contact Us section.

Occasionally, DoctorCPD will feature links to other sites that are not related to DoctorCPD . Please be aware that once you click to one of these sites, you are subject to that website's privacy policy and not to ours. You may wish to review the privacy policy for each site you visit.

By submitting your information, you consent to the use of that information as set out in this policy. If you have any questions, please email us. For details see: Contact Us.
