APPLICATION OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY 

This Privacy Policy applies to personal information collected by the Northpoint Medical Centre via its website and Facebook Page.
What personal information we collect and why we collect it
We collect personal information like your name, date of birth, email address, residential address, telephone number.

We collect information about you because:

• You have provided it to us—for example, if you contact us to ask us questions, book an appointment or complete your enrolment with us, we need it to provide a service that you have requested
• We would like to improve our services—for example, through the collection and analysis of statistical and research data and use of cookies
• Marketing Communications for our latest changes to our services, new amendments, changes in our fee structure and latest offers.

 

HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION

Broadly, there are two types of information or data we collect:

Information that you specifically give us

In some instances, you must provide personal information if you wish to receive a particular service or seeking a response for further information for services we provide.

You may choose to provide some personal information that is not required but is directly related to our services. This type of information will usually enable us to improve or broaden the services we offer you. If you choose not to provide this optional information, we would still be able to offer you the service although it may be with fewer options than if you had provided the optional information.

If you provide us with unsolicited information that we do not require or which is not directly related to our services, we may be required to destroy or de-identify that information, provided it is lawful and reasonable to do so.

In some instances, you will be asked to confirm that you agree
