Data Integrity and Security
The Company uses extensive security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and/or alteration of data located on our systems. We implement appropriate measures and processes, such as using encryption when transmitting certain sensitive information, to help us to keep your information secure and to maintain its quality. We regularly review our security and related policies to adapt the technology as new threats evolve, and monitor our systems to help ensure the highest level of availability.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our Web Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
If you have any questions about the security at our Web Site, you can send an email at email@example.com
We only keep your information for so long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. Therefore, once we have completed the service requested and contracted by you we will delete or archive the information. Information that is archived is anonymised and kept for statistical analysis purposes.
Links to Other Web Sites
This Web Site contains links to other sites that are not operated by The Company. Please be aware that the Company is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Web Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web Site (www.cmedresearch.com).
No data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be entirely secure. As a result, while we always use all reasonable efforts to protect the personal information you provide to us, we cannot guarantee the security of your information and the submission of data is thus at your own risk. Please be aware that in certain circumstances, it is possible that personal information may be subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or orders.
Right to ask us to stop contacting you with direct marketing. Even if you have accepted the processing of your personal data for marketing purposes (by ticking the relevant box), you have the right to ask us to stop processing your personal data for such purposes. Let us know what method of contact you are not happy with if you are unhappy with certain ways of contacting you only (for example, you may be happy for us to contact you by email but not by telephone).
Right to request a copy of your information. You can request a copy of your information which we hold (this is known as a subject access request). If you would like a copy of some or it, please contact us and let us know the information you want a copy of, including any account or reference numbers, if you have them. Any subject access request may be subject to a reasonable fee to cover the cost of providing you with details of the information we hold about you.
Right to correct any mistakes in your information. You can require us to correct any mistakes in your information which we hold free of charge. If you would like to do this, please contact us and let us know the information that is incorrect and the information you want it replaced with.
Right to request we cease processing your information. You may request that we cease processing your personal data. If you make such a request, we shall retain only the amount of personal data pertaining you that is necessary to ensure that no further processing of your personal data takes place.
Right to request deletion of your information. You can ask us to erase all your personal data (also known as the "right to be forgotten") in the following circumstances:
- it is no longer necessary for the Manager to hold that Personal Data with respect to the purpose for which it was originally collected or processed;
- you wish to withdraw your consent to us holding and processing your personal data;
- you object to us holding and processing your personal data (and there is no overriding legitimate interest to allow us to continue doing so);
- the personal data has been processed unlawfully; or
- the personal data needs to be erased in order for us to comply with a particular legal obligation.
Unless we have reasonable grounds to refuse to erase your personal data, all requests for erasure shall be complied with.
