privacy policy

Omnihealth Limited respects the privacy of every individual who visits our website and follow this privacy policy. In this website, the term "Omnihealth Practice" is used to refer to Omnihealth Limited.

This Privacy Policy describes the privacy practices of Omnihealth Practice and its affiliates (referred to collectively as “Omnihealth Practice,” “us”, “we”, and “our”) in relation to your use of websites, and other resources intended for use by the healthcare professionals and which we refer to as the “Omnihealth Practice Network,” including the information and services made available to users of the Omnihealth Practice Network, such as medical news, reference content, clinical tools, applications, sponsored programs, advertising, email communications, continuing medical education, market research opportunities and discussion forums (collectively, the “Information”).

Omnihealth Practice and its various affiliates respect your privacy and are always committed to protecting it at all time. This Privacy Policy explains how the Omnihealth Practice collects, uses, shares and safeguards information on its various websites and apps. We collect information about our users in three ways: directly from the user, from our Web server logs, and through cookies and other technologies. We use the information we collect primarily to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you.

We do not share any of the information you provide with others, unless we address in this Privacy Policy, or at the point of submission, or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. Before you use any of our Information or enter the Omnihealth Practice Network, you must agree to the Omnihealth Practice Terms of Use which is a contract between us and users of the Information. By agreeing to the Omnihealth Practice Network Terms of Use, you confirm that you have read and understand this Privacy Policy which explains how we collect, disclose, transfer, secure and use information about you in connection with your use of the Information and the rights and choices you have regarding these activities. If you do not want us to collect and use information about you as described in this Privacy Policy, then you should end this session and refrain from using any of our Information from now on.


1. Your Personal Information

We respect the privacy rights of users of this website. No personal information is required to access this website but where personal information is required to be submitted for certain purposes stated in this website, you agree and are required to enter accurate and true information.

All personal data collected by us on this website shall be treated in accordance with this Privacy Statement. In this website, we may collect information from you that you voluntarily choose to give us on our website. In these instances, we will inform you the purposes of collecting the personal information and we shall obtain you consent before collecting the information from you.


2. Our Use of Personal Information Collected

When you create an account to become a registered user on our sites, you will be invited to submit certain personal information which we collect in order to fulfil your expectations and anticipate your needs, such as your title, name, email address, profession, specialty, contact details and demographic information. You may choose to update or supplement the personal information that you provided at registration at any time through your account settings or by contacting [email protected].

  • How your information may be used?

We process data received about you on the legal basis of the Omnihealth Practice’s legitimate interest in providing our Information within the Omnihealth Practice Network to you. Once collected, we may use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • Register you for programs and services you have requested
  • Process, fulfil and follow up on your membership application
  • Provide access to content
  • Answer your emails or on-line requests

You can manage your account, limit alerts or opt-out of some or all future communications. All email communications contain an “unsubscribe” option in case you want to discontinue the communication at any time. 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:

(1) you are appropriately exposed to an advertisement and engaged in a sponsored program, subject to applicable law; (2) reasonably necessary to perform a service or deliver a product or publication or focus an offer specifically to you; (3) authorized by you; (4) permitted under this Privacy Policy; (5) required by statue or regulation; (6) in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process served on the Omnihealth Practice Network; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the Omnihealth Practice; (c) protect the personal safety of the Omnihealth Practice personnel or members of the public in urgent circumstances; or (d) enforce the Omnihealth Practice’s Privacy Policy or Terms of Use.

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).

Local storage is used to track the topics of information they view on the Omnihealth Practice Network. This information is used to provide a more personalized experience. Users who do not desire their local storage to be used may choose to adjust their web browser settings to disable local storage. This option is taken in some browsers by disabling the use of cookies. Blocking or rejecting cookies may prevent access to some features of the Omnihealth Practice Network. We also collect unique device identifiers and geolocation data related to devices that access the site, for use in analysing visitor’s practices and preferences. At this time, the Omnihealth Practice Network does not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include “do not track” instructions. Activation of cookie blocking or Do Not Track settings in your browser, or other mechanisms that block cookies or other tracking technologies, will not affect the collection, or use of personal information as outlined elsewhere in this Privacy Policy.

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.


5. Use of Cookies

Omnihealth Practice uses cookies to improve the experience for visitors to our websites, including websites that can be accessed through our mobile applications.

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.

We use cookies for several reasons:

  • 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
  • We and other advertisers may use statistical cookies to track who has seen an advert and clicked on it. You can find more information on this in the online behavioural advertising section of this privacy policy
  • You may turn cookies off but if you do this, you may not be able to view all information on our websites, and you might see more pop-ups and other advertising. This is because we will not be able to limit what you see by using cookies. However, you will still be able to see our editorial content. By using this website, you are agreeing to the use of cookies as described


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.

You should be aware that we cannot honour requests to DO Not Track website visitors. Activation of cookie blocking or Do Not Tack settings in your browser, or other mechanisms that block cookies or other tracking technologies, will not affect the collection or use of personal information as outlined elsewhere in this Privacy Policy.


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.
