For the purpose of the Data Protection Act 1988 & 2003 (the “Act”), when you order products from us directly we are the data controllers for the purposes of that Act.  When you order our products through third party sources including hospitals, healthcare professionals, or public authorities (the “Third Parties”) we are processing your information on behalf of the Third Parties who are the data controllers for the purposes of the Act.

We may collect and process the following data about you:

If, however, you choose to do so then you consent to our processing this data in the manner set out in this policy.

  • to make suggestions and recommendations to you and other users of Our Site about goods or services that may interest you or them.

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

We may share your personal information with any member of our group, which means our affiliates and subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in the Companies Act (Ireland) 1963.

We may share your information with selected third parties including:

  • Business partners, Third Parties and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you; and
  • Analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of Our Site.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets;
  • If we or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by us about our customers will be one of the transferred assets; and
  • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our supply agreements or investigate any breaches; or
  • to protect our rights, property, or safety, or that of our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

SAFE GUARDING your personal data

 

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA“). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just ‘surfing’. While we use SSL encryption to protect personal information online, we also take all practical measures to protect your information off-line. All of your information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of Our Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

If you have submitted information directly to the Third Parties in respect of a particular product or service then you understand that we process that information as an agent of the Third Party. We may hold a back-up copy of the information that you submit, but only as an agent of the Third Party. If you wish to modify or otherwise deal with your personal information submitted directly to a Third Party then you should contact the Third Party directly, as they have responsibility for that personal information. We will comply with the Third Party’s instructions in respect of that personal information. If you wish to understand the Third Party’s data protection or privacy policy with regards to the dealings that it has with your personal information then you should contact the Third Party directly to establish such terms.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to Our Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Keeping your information up to date

 

If your personal information changes (such as post code, phone, email or postal address), or if you no longer desire our products or services, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate your information. This can usually be done by contacting us using the details at the end of this policy.

 

NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES

 

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, Our Site, and other places we deem appropriate so you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

If, however, we are going to use your personal information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify you via email. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. However, if you have opted out of all communication with Our Sites, then you will not be contacted, nor will your personal information be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on Our Site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also email you if you have opted to receive communications from us, notifying you of the changes in our privacy practices.

Your rights

 

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data.  You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at info@hc21.ie.

Our Site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates.  If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these third party websites.  Please check the policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

Access to information

 

The Act gives you the right to access information held about you by a data controller. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee of €6.35 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.
