Doocle Limited understands that your privacy is important to you and that you care about how your personal data is used and shared online. We respect and value the privacy of everyone who visits this Website, www.doocle.com (“Our Site”) and will only collect and use personal data in ways that are described here and in a manner that is consistent with Our obligations and your rights under the law.
This Policy is incorporated into and is subject to Our Terms and Conditions. Capitalized words used but not defined in this Policy have the meaning given to them in the Terms and Conditions.
In addition, you have a number of rights as a data subject. You can, for instance, seek access to your medical information, object to me using your information in particular ways, request rectification of any information which is inaccurate or deletion of information which is no longer required (subject to certain exceptions). This Policy also sets out your rights in respect of your personal information, and how to exercise them.
This Policy applies only to your use of Our Site. Our Site may contain links to other websites. Please note that We have no control over how your data is collected, stored, or used by other websites and We advise you to check the privacy policies of any such websites before providing any data to them.
When you use Our Services, you may provide, and We may collect what is generally called “personally identifiable” data or “personal data”, which is data that specifically identifies an individual (“Personal Data”). Examples of Personal Data include name, email address, mailing address, mobile phone number, images and credit card or other billing information. Personal Data also includes other information, such as date of birth, geographic area, or preferences, when any such data is linked to information that identifies a specific individual.
You may provide Us with Personal Data in various ways on the Services. For example, you provide Us with Personal Data when you register for an Account, use the Services, interact with other users of the Services through communication or messaging features, or send Us customer service-related requests.
We will hold “special categories of personal information” previously known as “sensitive personal data”) about you, such as information relating to your physical and mental health.
If you provide personal information to Us about other individuals (including medical or financial information), you should inform the individual about the contents of this Policy. We will also process such information in accordance with this Policy.
In addition, you should note that in the event you amend data which We already hold about you (for instance by amending a pre-populated form) then We will update Our systems to reflect the amendments. Our systems will continue to store historical data.
The confidentiality of your medical information is important to Us, and We make every effort to prevent unauthorised access to and use of information relating to your current or former physical and mental health (or indeed any of your personal information more generally). From 25 May 2018, the current Data Protection Act will be replaced by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and a new Data Protection Act. All uses of your information will comply with the GDPR and the new Data Protection Act from that date onwards and all applicable medical confidentiality guidelines issued by professional bodies including, but not limited to, the General Medical Council and the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
When you use the Services, We may automatically record certain information from your device. This automatically “collected” information may include your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after you use the Services, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on the Services, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the Services. We may also collect information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message. This information is gathered from all users.
We may obtain information, including Personal Data, from third parties and sources other than the Services, such as Our partners and advertisers. If We combine or associate information from other sources with Personal Data that We collect through the Services, We will treat the combined information as Personal Data in accordance with this Policy.
We may implement third-party content or advertising on the Services that may use clear gifs or other forms of Web beacons, which allow the third-party content provider to read and write cookies to your browser in connection with your viewing of the third-party content on the Services. Additionally, We may implement third-party buttons (such as Facebook “like” or “share” buttons) that may allow third parties to collect information about you through such third parties’ browser cookies, even when you do not interact with the button. Information collected through Web beacons and buttons is collected directly by these third parties, and We do not participate in that data transmission. Information collected by a third party in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies.
We use the information that We collect to operate, maintain, enhance and provide all features of the Services, to provide services and information that you request, to respond to comments and questions and otherwise to provide support to users of the Services.
We use the information that We collect to understand and analyse the usage trends and preferences of Our users, to improve the Services, and to develop new products, services, features, and functionality.
We may use your email address or other information We collect (a) to contact you for administrative purposes such as customer service, to address intellectual property infringement, right of privacy violations or defamation issues related to your Data posted on the Services or (b) to send communications, including updates on promotions and events, relating to products and services offered by us and by third parties We work with. Generally, you have the ability to opt-out of receiving any promotional communications as described below under “Right to Withdraw Consent”.
We may use “cookies” information and “automatically collected” information to (a) personalise Our services, such as remembering your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Website; (b) provide customised advertisements, content, and information; (c) monitor and analyse the effectiveness of Services and third-party marketing activities; (d) monitor aggregate Website usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed; and (e) track your entries, submissions, and status in any promotions or other activities on the Services.
Except as described in this Policy, We will not disclose your information that We collect on the Services to third parties without your consent. We may disclose information to third parties if you consent to us doing so, as well as in the following circumstances:
Any information that you voluntarily choose to include in a publicly accessible area of the Services, such as a public profile page, will be available to anyone who has access to that content, including other users.
We may make certain automatically-collected, aggregated, or otherwise non-personally-identifiable information available to third parties for various purposes, including (a) compliance with various reporting obligations; (b) for business or marketing purposes; or (c) to assist such parties in understanding Our users’ interests, habits, and usage patterns for certain programmes, content, services, and/or functionality available through the Services.
We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws, in response to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena or warrant, or to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement or other governmental agencies.
We also reserve the right to disclose your information that We believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to (a) take precautions against liability, (b) protect ourselves or others from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses or activity, (c) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, (d) protect the security or integrity of the Services and any facilities or equipment used to make the Services available, or (e) protect Our property or other legal rights (including, but not limited to, enforcement of Our agreements), or the rights, property, or safety of others.
Information about Our users, including Personal Data, may be disclosed and otherwise transferred to an acquirer, or successor or assignee as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of assets, or similar transaction, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of Our business assets.
We work with third-party service providers (“Service Providers”) to provide a website, application development, hosting, maintenance, payment and other services for us. These third parties may have access to or process your information as part of providing those services for us. Generally, the information provided to and gathered by these Service Providers are limited to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions, and We require them to agree to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
We do not own, control or direct the use of any of the information stored or processed by the Service Providers. Only they are entitled to access, retrieve and direct the use of such information depending on the service that they provide. A service provider is not aware of what information is actually being stored or made available by another third-party service provider and does not directly access such information or data except as authorised by you or as necessary to provide the Services to you.
Because We do not collect or determine the use of any Personal Data by the Service Provider, and because We do not determine the purposes for which such Personal Data is collected, the means of collecting such Personal Data, or the uses of such Personal Data, We are not acting in the capacity of data controller in terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on data privacy (“Directive”) and do not have the associated responsibilities under the Directive. We should be considered only as a processor on behalf of Our Service Providers and users as to any information containing Personal Data that is subject to the requirements of the Directive. Except as provided in this Policy, We do not independently cause information containing Personal Data stored in connection with the Services to be transferred or otherwise made available to third parties, except to third party subcontractors who may process such data on Our behalf in connection with Our Services. Such actions are performed or authorised only by you.
The Service Provider is the data controller under the Directive for any information containing Personal Data. This means that you or the relevant user controls the manner such Personal Data is collected and used as well as the determination of the purposes and means of the processing of such Personal Data. We are not responsible for the content of the Personal Data or other information stored on the Service Provider's servers (or its subcontractors’ servers) at your discretion, and We are responsible for the manner in which the Service Provider, handles disclosure, distributes or otherwise processes such information.
A user who seeks to access, correct, amend, delete inaccurate data or withdraw consent for further contact should direct his query to the Service Provider.
Aside from the information stored or processed by the third-party Service Providers above, Doocle Limited is the Data Controller of all other information stored or processed on the Website.
Our data controller registration number in England and Wales is A8185478.
By visiting and using the Website and giving Us your Personal Data, you consent to your Personal Data being collected and processed. The data that We collect will be stored on the cloud based in the European Economic Area ("EEA"). From there, the data may be transferred to and stored by Doctors operating outside the EEA and processed by their employees or subcontractors to fulfil the services that you have requested.
The communication of sensitive text data like medical records by the Patient is encrypted in-transit while uploaded and stored in the Cloud with only the patient and Our administrator having access to them, with Patients allowing doctors to access the data on request. The communication internally between Our servers (e.g. between application server and database) is handled via secure socket layer (“SSL”) to provide AE-256 encryption) and all information between Our servers and the user’s browser is handled via SSL (up to 256-bit encryption, depending upon your browser), providing an industry-standard level of protection for data-in-transit. Data travelling between a customer’s device and Our cloud platform is encrypted by default using HTTPS/TLS (Transport Layer Security). All encrypted data is signed using a message authentication code (MAC) so that the underlying value cannot be modified once encrypted. The cloud platforms (Amazon, Google) that We use maintain certification with robust security standards, including:
SSAE16 / ISAE 3402 Type II: SOC 2 and SOC 3 public audit report;
ISO 27001, one of the most widely recognized, internationally accepted independent security standards;
PCI DSS v3.0, payment card industry data security standard;
HIPAA BAA, US standard for protecting sensitive patient data.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to Us, both during transmission and once We receive it. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of the Personal Data in Our possession. This includes, for example, firewalls, password protection and other access and authentication controls. We use SSL technology to encrypt data during transmission through public internet, and We also employ application-layer security features to further anonymise Personal Data.
However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Us or store on the Services, and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of Our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If you believe your Personal Data has been compromised, please contact us at email@example.com.
If We learn of a security systems breach, then We will attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take the appropriate protective steps. We may post a notice through the Services if a security breach occurs.
We only retain the information collected from you for as long as your Account is active or otherwise for a limited period of time as long as We need it to fulfil the purposes for which We have initially collected it, unless otherwise required by law.
We will permanently delete your Account, including all your Personal Data therein, as soon as reasonably practicable within 12 months of termination of your Account or from the time you have paid all monies due to us, whichever is later.
If you have specifically requested for an earlier deletion of your Data, We shall fulfil such request within one month of receipt of such request.
We will retain and use information as necessary to comply with Our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce Our agreements.
Information that We or Service Providers collect 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 Policy.
If you are in the European Union, information which you provide may be transferred to countries outside of the EEA, where data protection laws are different to those in force in the European Union. You expressly agree to such transfers.
Please note that We have listed above the current common transfers of personal data outside of the EEA but it may be necessary, in the future, to transfer such data for other purposes. In the event that it is necessary to do so, We will update this Policy.
An automated decision is a decision made by computer without any human input, and there will be no automated decision-making in relation to your consultation or other decisions which will produce legal or similarly significant effect.
