The personal information we collect and how we use it
We will only use the information we collect about you as allowed by law (in line with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679).
We collect information about you to:
· Process your order; and
· Provide you with the best possible service.
We will not email you unless you have given us permission. If you are already signed up to receive our marketing emails, you can opt out at any time by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the end of every email we send you.
The information we will collect includes the following: your name, address, phone number, email address, credit or debit-card details, and IP address.
If you are buying a licensed medicine, we may need to ask you some questions about your medical history so that we can assess whether the medication is suitable for you. We will never collect sensitive information about you without your permission. We will keep the information we hold about you accurate and up to date. You can check the information that we hold about you by visiting your account or emailing us. If you find any inaccuracies, we will delete or correct them. We will hold your personal information securely, in line with our internal security policy and the law. We will not transfer or sell your information. We may use technology to track how people use our site. If you have any questions or comments about privacy, email us at email@example.com
We may ask you to review our service relating to your order. We may also choose to publish your review on our website, to help other customers decide where to shop.
We will only keep your personal information for as long as we need it for the purposes we collected it for, including for the purpose of meeting any legal, accounting or reporting requirements. To decide how long we should keep any particular information for, we consider:
· the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information;
· the potential risk of harm from unauthorised access to or use of your personal information;
· what we need your personal information for, and whether we can achieve that purpose in another way; and
· any legal requirements that apply.
Use of personal information
We use the information you provide to:
· send you updates about the status of your enquiry or order;
· assess the suitability of certain licensed medicines you order;
· send you newsletters and details of offers and promotions we believe you will be interested in;
· improve the design and content of our site;
· understand the buying behaviour of our customers; and
· perform other general marketing and promotional activities focused on our products and services.
When you place an order, we need to know your name and email address, the delivery address, and your credit- or debit-card number and expiry date. This allows us to process, pick and dispatch your order, and to tell you the status of your order. We may also ask for your phone number so that we can contact you urgently if there is a problem with your order.
Your email address
We will use your email address to communicate with you about your order and the products you have bought. While we have your permission to send you marketing emails, we will use your email address for marketing purposes. You can opt out of receiving marketing emails through the My Account section of our site, or by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of our emails.
Physical and electronic security
We have designed our site to protect the information we collect from unauthorised access. We protect your private information by following appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures. To further protect your security, we also take reasonable steps to confirm your identity before we give you access to your account or allow you to make changes to your personal details. We are committed to protecting your privacy and have security measures in place to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information.
Improving our service
We will never sell, trade or rent your personal information to others. To better tailor our services to our customers' needs, we use non-identifying general information to help us make decisions on how to improve us. We also share this general information with our advertisers and other interested, reputable parties we have a formal business relationship with. For example, we may tell advertisers which areas of our site are visited the most by customers or, more specifically, how many types of customer have visited certain web pages. However, we do not give advertisers information that identifies individual customers. We also do not use or share identifiable information given to us in any other way without giving our customers the choice to opt out.
