MACPT Privacy and Data Security Policy

Introduction

This privacy policy applies to your use of the MACPT Website (referred to as the "Website"), operated by Managing Advanced Cancer Pain Together, referred to interchangeably hereafter as "MACPT".

The Website includes, without limitation, the MACPT Website (www.macpt.eu) and any other online platforms used by MACPT which could require your personal data.

MACPT respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the confidentiality of your personal information. This policy explains how MACPT collects and uses your information, and how it protects your privacy.

This policy applies to personal information held about individuals. It does not apply to information MACPT holds about companies and other organisations. It is in addition to any specific policies concerning specific products or services. It does not supersede the MACPT Terms and Conditions which govern the use of the MACPT Website. MACPT reserves the right to amend this privacy policy at its sole discretion, without prior notice, at any time, with the proviso that details of the amendments are published on the MACPT Website. They become effective from the time of posting. MACPT is the sole owner of the Website and, as such, is the sole owner of any information collected through the Website.

MACPT is committed to the following standards, on a commercially reasonable basis:

  1. To collect and use only the minimum information necessary for us to deliver high quality service to users, to administer our business, and to inform you of MACPT services.
  2. To protect the information our visitors share with us, maintaining strong standards of security and confidentiality.

How MACPT Collects Personal Information

The sources of personal information received by MACPT are:

MACPT may collect personal information in the following ways:

What Personal Information is Collected by MACPT

Mandatory Personal Information

Your email address is retained when you contact MACPT through the Website. Electronic communication is for most purposes MACPT's preferred method of communication because it is generally convenient, rapid, environmentally friendly and efficient.

Unique Email Address

You are strongly recommended to use an email address which is personal to you and that is not shared with others. This is to ensure that communications which are sent to you personally are not read by others.

How MACPT Uses Personal Information

Personal information which you supply may be specifically used to enable MACPT to communicate with you after you have contacted MACPT.

Listed below are some of the security procedures that MACPT uses to protect your privacy:

Email Privacy

MACPT respects the privacy of personal email addresses and complies with the current legislation on email communication (according to the UK Data Protection Act). MACPT will not send you unsolicited email messages and will not contact you on behalf of third parties without your consent. Your email details will not be passed on to any other individual or organisation without your explicit permission.

How Long Personal Information is Kept

Personal information supplied when contacting MACPT through the MACPT Website or by mail: as a general rule, personal information is kept for 10 years as from the moment of registering.

Use of Cookies

Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to your computer's hard disk for record keeping purposes. They are small text files that a website can use to recognise repeat users and facilitate their ongoing access to, and use of, the site. They do not pose a threat to your system or files.

The use of cookies is an industry standard, and many websites use them to provide useful features. Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users. Most browsers are set initially to accept cookies. You can set your computer to reject cookies. However, if you do choose to disable cookies, you will not be able to enjoy the full range of services available to you.

When you use the Website, services, applications, messaging and tools, MACPT or authorised service providers may collect information such as your IP address, geographical location, referral source, length of visit and pages viewed. MACPT uses this information to operate and improve the Website.

Use of Web Analytics

As a website gathers individual pieces of Non-Personal Information from its users, it may combine similar data from many or all the users of the website into one big 'batch'. This sort of statistical information is called 'aggregate data' because it reflects the habits and characteristics of a large group of anonymous people. Websites may use aggregate data or share it with business partners so that the information and services they provide best meet the needs of the users. Aggregate data also helps sponsors on the Web know how effectively they are reaching and meeting the needs of their target audience.

Google Analytics Information: a record of all the pages you have visited during your visit to a particular website or the services you accessed from the site or from an email. Google Analytics Information is associated with your browser and not with you personally. It records the activities of your browser.
