We will never share your information with third parties for promotional purposes.
Who we are
More formally, we are Cievert Ltd. t/a Cievert. We are registered in England and Wales under company number 7495794 and our registered address is at Office 37 Gateshead International Business Centre, Mulgrave Terrace, Gateshead, Tyne & Wear, United Kingdom, NE8 1AN. We operate the website found at www.cievert.co.uk.
Information for our users
We provide a range of software and services to the healthcare sector. To be able to discuss these services in more detail with you and provide demonstrations of the software we will need to correspond with you via email, telephone and in person. We will also want to update you from time to time about new products and services or changes to our existing products and services. As you can imagine, this involves the provision of personal information.
You will be asked to provide information such as your name and contact details. This means that you will be personally identifiable from that information. Please rest assured that we will treat your personal information confidentially.
What we do with your information
Information submitted to Cievert will be processed to:
- Provide you with updates on the service and any content that may be of interest to you.
- Deliver our services and run our business generally.
- We will never share your personal information with third parties for promotional purposes.
In addition, we may also create an anonymised copy of data sets collected and/or created using our systems. Once the data sets are fully anonymised (within the meaning set out in the GDPR), we will be free to make full and unlimited use of the fully anonymised data sets but only for the purposes of medical/healthcare and/or sociological research and statistical analysis related to the same, whether such research is conducted by Cievert or by any third party. Before processing your data in this manner, we will seek your specific consent to do so. We will also wait at least two months from receiving your consent before processing your data for anonymisation to give you the opportunity to change your mind and withdraw consent.
We compile statistics about user trends on our platform, which are used by third party organisations to better understand how users interact with businesses online. These statistics are drawn from a dataset that does not contain any information from which you can be identified.
How long we intend to keep your information
We will keep your data until you instruct us to delete your details. If you wish for us to delete your data, you can instruct us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, if your employing organisation has purchased software and/or services from Cievert and we need to contact you in order to deliver our contractual obligation, your details will only be deleted from our sales and marketing database.
Where we hold your information
If we hold information about you that would be defined by the General Data Protection Regulation 2018 as “personal data” (which is to say, information that would identify you, such as your name and email address or place of work), you can find out what personal data we hold about you or ask us to update or delete that personal data by sending us an email at email@example.com. It may be necessary for us to carry out checks to establish that you really are who you claim to be before providing any such information to you.
All data we hold on you will remain within the EU at all times.
What we do to ensure the security of your personal information
We take the security of your data very seriously. Our approach to information security is constantly evolving and continually reviewed.
We have adopted industry best practices from both technological and business process perspectives in order to make securing your data a key part of the way we do business.
Your rights regarding your personal information
We will contact you with updates about our products and services and how we are evolving to deliver greater benefits to you.
You can opt out of communications at any time you choose by following the ‘unsubscribe’ information in the correspondence, and we will provide a list of contact options on our website.
Information that we hold about you is available to you at all times by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. It may be necessary for us to carry out checks to establish that you really are who you claim to be before providing any such information to you.
We will provide a copy of the information free of charge. However, we reserve the right to charge an administration fee when a request is: manifestly unfounded or excessive, particularly if it is repetitive; or for further copies of the same information (that has previously been provided).
