Data Protection and Privacy Statement
Collection of Your Personal Data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person that enables a third party to identify this person, directly or indirectly.
The provision of your personal data is optional and you can generally use our website without revealing any personal identifiable information about yourself. However, in certain areas of our website, we may offer you the opportunity to contact us or we may request information from you to verify that you are a healthcare provider. In these cases, we will collect your personal data.
We will collect your personal data:
