What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Client and Medical Information
When clients apply for an account on our website we collect the data shown in the application form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. When clients and/or medical practitioners provide prescription and practitioner information, we collect the data for mandatory compliance and reporting purposes.
All information is transmitted and stored securely using encryption protocols for data during transmission and while stored.
A user account is created created from your name and email address. After verification of your email address, you account is active but before purchasing is enabled, you must complete a consultation with a medical practitioner and provide a valid prescription document. Once the medical document and practitioner are verified, you will be able to order on the website to the monthly maximum indicated by the prescription that has been provided.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
