If we contract with vendors to deliver emails to you on their behalf, they are under agreement and limited from using your email address and other personal information for any other purpose.
Any questions, comments, suggestions, or information other than personal data sent to us will be considered voluntarily provided to Omnihealth Practice on a non-confidential and non-proprietary basis.
- With whom we may share information?
The Omnihealth Practice Network may share personal information with our business partners to provide them opportunity to offer products or services that may be of interest to the Omnihealth Practice Members and others. The Omnihealth Practice Network also occasionally engages other companies to provide limited services on our behalf including, but not limited to, processing payment card transactions, packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, and customer orders, consulting services, data modelling, session monitoring and website analytics, printing, sending postal mail and processing membership orders for products and services, and event registration, email distribution, website and systems hosting, and data storage. We provide those companies with access to information as is required to deliver the service. They are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose. Except as described in this section, third parties may not collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time or across different Web sites when you use our web sites.
A popular feature on some websites is the ability to “sign in” or access content via your existing social media account, such as Google, Facebook, or Twitter. While that is convenient, it requires the sharing of your first name, last name, email address and metadata to confirm your status as a registered user.
3. Disclosure to Third Parties
On occasion, the Omnihealth Practice Network may disclose your personal information to a third party. Those circumstances include when:
We track how our Information are used by both anonymous visitors and registered users who interact with the Omnihealth Practice Network. One way we track is by using “cookies.” A cookie is a small piece of data that a server sends to the user’s web browser. The browser may store it and send it back with later requests to the same server. Two types of cookies are commonly used. A session cookie is created by a website when that website is accessed; that type of cookie is automatically deleted by closing the Web browser. A persistent cookie is a cookie that is stored on the hard drive of the user’s computer for a period of time chosen by the website that set the cookie, usually for a number of years, unless the user deletes it manually. This policy distinguishes between short-lived cookies and long-lasting cookies. Short-lived cookies include all session cookies and those persistent cookies that are set to be stored for no more than one week. The Omnihealth Practice-related websites may at times require users to accept short-lived cookies for the websites to function properly. Long-lasting cookies maybe used on the site to track visitor practices to help determine which site features and services are most important and guide editorial direction. Other long-lasting cookies may make it possible for the user to access the site without requiring entry of a user name or password, allow the user to view different restricted areas of the site without re-registering, allow the user to personalize the site for future use and provide other features and benefits. Users who do not desire the functionality created by the long-lasting cookies can disable the long-lasting cookie function by disabling the long-lasting cookie function by disabling the long-lasting cookie function on their Web browser. Individuals can opt out of long-lasting cookie functions at any time. Another way interactions with our sites are tracked is by leveraging HTML5 web storage within the user’s browser (also known as local storage).
Cookies are essential for site administration and security. Another way we track site activity is by using transparent electronic images called “clear GIFs,” “Web bugs,” or “Web beacons” on the Omnihealth Practice Network. These images count the number of users who visit a page from via links in an ad, an article or an email. A similar image, sometimes called a “spotlight tag,” is applied to the Omnihealth Practice Network where transactions take place. The spotlight tag collects numeric information, such as the dollar amount of an online purchase, to help us understand site usage and performance. We do not use any of these electronic images to collect personally identifiable information.
4. Email Activity Tracking
Email messages sent to you may contain “Clear GIFs” or “Web beacons” or other tracking tools to measure the effectiveness of an alert, offer or opportunity so we know what more appropriate contents fit you. We do not collect information that identifies you personally through “clear GIFs” or “Web beacons”. You may refuse or remove the placement of these and other cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your web browser or within your email account.
Cookies are tiny files, composed of a string of letters and numbers, placed on your computer by web page servers. They enable the website owner to distinguish you from other users of the website. Cookies cannot be executed as code or used to deliver viruses and they cannot enable us to access your hard drive. We cannot read any information on your hard drive even if we store cookies there.
- For statistical purposes to track how many users we have and how often they visit our websites. We collect information listing which of our pages are most frequently visited, and by which types of users and from which countries
6. Third Party Tracking on Our Websites and Apps
Ad networks and data analytics firms may track and analyse traffic on the Omnihealth Practice Network, in part, to determine advertising effectiveness, browser types and website usage trends, website and systems performance and to present targeted ads based on anonymous information collected through tracking. Third-party vendors and service providers, such as Google, may then pool the anonymous information that they collect from the Omnihealth Practice Network with other sources of information, which may include your name and mailing address, for purposes of determining whether you might be interested in receiving direct mail, a catalogue or a journal. This anonymous aggregate data on visitors and their use of our content provides business intelligence to better serve visitors, improve our content and track trends that might signal the outbreak of an infectious disease, or contribute to improving health outcomes. If you open an advertisement, you leave our sites and become subject to the terms and practices of that separate website, which may have different rules about tracking and data usage.
7. Information Security
The Omnihealth Practice Network implements security measures to protect against unauthorised access to or unauthorised alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data. We restrict access to personal information to personal information to our employees and business partners of the Omnihealth Practice Network who may need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our Information. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
8. How We Safeguard the Information?
- User ID and password
The Omnihealth Practice Network requires the use of user ID and password as measure to access some areas of the site and to protect your information. This security measure allows the Omnihealth Practice Network to verify who you are, thereby allowing you access to your account information and preventing unauthorised access. When you have finished using a secure area of the Omnihealth Practice Network, make sure you always click on the “Log Out” link which appears on every secure page. When you click on the “Log Out” link, you will be given the option to end your secure session. No further secure transactions can be conducted without re-entering your user ID and password. You should be aware that browser software often “caches” a page as you look at it, meaning that some pages are saved in your computer’s temporary memory. Therefore, you may find that clicking on your “Back” button shows you a saved version of a previously viewed page. Caching in no way affects the security of your confidential user ID or password.
9. No Guarantee
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. The Omnihealth Practice Network cannot fully guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or to or from a website may not be secure. Confidential information should not be sent by email. Site visitors sending email accept the risk that a third party may intercept email messages.
10. Linkage to Websites Outside The Omnihealth Practice Network
You should be aware that other Internet sites that link to the Omnihealth Practice Network or any emails from the Omnihealth Practice Network may contain privacy provisions that differ from these. We do not control those sites or the information they collect about you. To ensure your privacy is protected, we recommend that you review the privacy statements of other Internet sites you visit.
11. How You Can Access and Change Information
Under the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (Cap. 486) (“PDPO”) you have the right to ascertain whether the Omnihealth Practice Network holds your personal data, to obtain a copy of the data, and to correct any data that is inaccurate. You may also request the Omnihealth Practice Network to inform you of the type of personal data held by it.
