SHL Telemedicine follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. These measures are in place to protect the security of your Personal Information and to ensure that your choices for its intended use are honored. We take strong precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
When you place orders or access your personal account information, you’re utilizing secure server software SSL, which encrypts your personal information before it’s sent over the Internet. SSL is one of the safest encryption technologies available.
Sharing your personally identifiable information enables us to offer you a number of benefits. It will make it easier and more convenient for you to:
• Request information specific to your interests;
• Purchase and subscribe to the SHL service online;
• Receive personalized messages and special offers that are relevant to your interests;
• Save time by storing your preferences;
We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Your Personal Information is not shared outside the company without your permission. Inside the company, data is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access. Your Personal Information may be stored and processed in different sites or locations where SHL or its subsidiaries is located.
You also have a significant role in protecting your information. Other than SHL personnel that provide you with our services, no one can see or edit your personal information without knowing your user name and password, so do not share these with others.
SHL collects two kinds of information: (1) Personally identifiable medical information (“Personal Information”) voluntarily provided by visitors or subscribers to our services through optional registration or other methods and (2) non-personally identifiable information routinely gathered as visitors navigate through our Website.
You are free to visit and use our Website without providing any Personal Information. However, SHL offers services on our Website that require registration and submission of Personal Information. In order to register or otherwise take advantage of the products and personalized services that we offer on our Website, you will have to provide Personal Information. The Personal Information we might request from you may include your name, address, email address, phone number and, if you are making a purchase of products or services, personal medical data and your billing / debit / credit card information.
By way of example only, some situations in which we may request Personal Information include: when you register to become a subscriber to the SHL service(s); when you register to receive informational Newsletter(s); when you participate in a survey on our Website; or to when you wish to participate in one of our interactive forums, including chat rooms or posting boards. The ways in which we collect Personal Information are described in more details below.
Emails & Newsletters
You may receive email subscriptions and newsletters from SHL. A member of the SHL team may contact members via email, telephone or postal mail for potential offerings, interviews, surveys or feature stories. Your cooperation with or participation in such activity is strictly voluntary and you are free to refuse to participate.
Non-personally Identifiable Information
You may use our Website without registering or submitting any Personal Information. In that case, the only information we will collect from you is general, aggregated, demographic, or other non-personal information.
As is true of most websites, we may gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information (which does not identify individual users) to analyze trends, to administer the Website, and to identify and solve hardware and software problems as they arise. We may link this automatically-collected data to your Personal Information for the purpose of determining your interests and to offer you services that we believe may be of interest to you.
