HOW POSTUREVIDEOS PROTECTS YOUR PERSONAL DATA

 

Posture Videos was set up to provide people with a service that they could trust. A central part of achieving such trust is the Posture Videos privacy policy. It is the rigorous enforcement of this policy that protects your privacy and ensures that your email remains free of the unwanted junk mail that over-runs so many typical email services. Posture Videos will never sell or pass on your email address without your permission and, in this context, “never” really does mean never.

 

WHAT INFORMATION DOES POSTUREVIDEOS.COM COLLECT FROM YOU?

 

We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:

 

– information about your computer and about your visits to and use of the site

– information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us

– information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to email notifications and/or newsletters

– information that you provide to us as part of your participation in market research

– any information that you choose to send to us as further described in the remainder of this privacy policy.

 

HOW DATA IS HANDLED

 

Except as set out in the privacy policy, your personal data will not be passed on to any third parties. Posture Videos has, of course, notified under theData Protection Act (Posture Videos data registration number is ZA058633), but Posture Videos commitment to protecting your privacy goes further than that required by legislation. This is just one of the many benefits of a service that truly is run by professionals.

CONSENT

 

Whenever you give Posture Videos personal data, you are consenting to its collection and use in accordance with this privacy policy, including Posture Videos contacting you by email to let you know about its services and to provide information (including promotional information) about other goods and services in which you may be interested. For example those of organisations such as medical device companies, ergonomic equipment supply companies and sporting apparel companies. You do, however, have the right at any time to opt out of Posture Videos contacting you in this way for marketing purposes.

 

HOW DOES POSTURE VIDEOS USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

 

In addition to the specific uses mentioned elsewhere in this policy, or for which you have given permission, Posture Videos uses your personal data to provide services to you, to administer the site, to improve your browsing experience by personalising site content, to carry out membership administration, to let you know about other goods and services in which you may be interested, to inform you about changes and improvements to the Posture Videos website and services, and for direct marketing purposes (but you do have the right to opt out of this).

 

Posture Videos may also use personal data to monitor the use of the site, to record traffic flows and to carry out research about member demographics, interests and behaviour. Posture Videos does this to better understand the needs of its posture pupils.

 

TO WHOM MIGHT POSTURE VIDEOS DISCLOSE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

 

We may disclose information about you to any of our employees, officers, agents, suppliers or sub-contractors insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy policy. In addition, Posture Videos may disclose your personal information:

 

– to the extent that we are required to do so by law

– in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings, and

– in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights

 

If you choose to participate in certain programs and memberships run on the website, your participation in that program, together with your personal identifier, may be passed on to the associated companies and data processors. You will always be able to refuse permission for this data to be passed to the sponsor if you so wish. Some of the data processors may be located outside the European Economic Area.

 

Associated companies undertake to use such data only for assessing your access (and the frequency of that access) to material provided by them via the Posture Videos website for their internal auditing purposes.

 

Except as set out above, or with your permission, Posture Videos will not disclose your personal data unless obliged to do so by law, or where Posture Videos needs to do so in order to run its business (for instance where Posture Videos outsources services for the processing of data.)

 

INTERNATIONAL DATA TRANSFERS

 

Information that Posture Videos collects may be stored and processed in and transferred between any of the countries in which we operate in order to enable us to use the information in accordance with this privacy policy.

 

Information which you provide may be transferred to or accessed from countries (including the United States) which do not have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the European Economic Area. You expressly agree to such transfers of personal information.

 

CONFIDENTIALITY

 

Posture Videos respects the confidentiality of members and uses systems to help keep all data secure. With the increased use of electronic data collection, storage and distribution, there is a need to ensure that information is only seen by those whom the sender intends to see it. As more data is generated, so the chance of it going astray increases. Any information exchange may result in a breach of security, but most complaints of a breach of confidence by health professionals are due to casual conversations in public places and not because of failures in electronic security. Posture Videos protects the confidentiality of information members send and receive by using a system of password protection for the website and a data storage solution with in-built security features. However, members are reminded that they should not send any sensitive identifiable data across the Internet and you should not post such information in forum areas, such as webinars.

 

SECURITY

 

Posture Videos will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. Posture Videos will store all the personal information you provide on Posture Videos secure (password and firewall-protected) servers. Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and Posture Videos cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.

Posture Videos Members set up an account using a login name and password. Posture Videos uses additional security details to verify your identity should you request support from ask@posturevideos.com.
