Cookies

This website uses "cookies". A cookie is a text file that our webserver sends to your computer (your browser file) when you access the website. 

Cookies enable us to improve your user experience on this website. 

The cookies we use are necessary to help us provide tailored content and monitor site use which will allow us to improve the website in the future.

Our cookies primarily store analytics information, which is never shared with third-parties. The information that is stored in our cookies is limited to browser information and information derived from the IP address. We never store personal or sensitive information in our cookies.

EPG Health automatically sets cookies for all website users unless they are disabled in the browser settings. Disabling the cookies could lead to the website not functioning properly and you may be unable to view the content in the manner that was originally intended.

Third party cookies

Within our website, we have ‘social buttons’ for services from third-party providers such as Twitter and LinkedIn. These enable users to share or bookmark our web pages or content. To implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of this website. If you are logged into such websites or if you use these buttons, the third-party sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing on the internet, including on the EPG Health website. 

We are unable to prevent these sites, or external domains, from collecting information on your usage of this embedded content. We therefore suggest that you check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out or delete such information. Alternatively, you can set your browser to not accept third party cookies.

Use of your data

The primary purpose for collecting personal information (including contact details) from users of this website and our other services, is to provide a high quality and personalised service. 

We use personal information collected for multiple purposes including managing customer accounts, verifying identity, improving our website, ensuring eligibility and relevance of services and for general business administration.

Such communications may include, but not be limited to, information about market research, whitepapers, events, products and services from our group Companies including EPG Communication Holdings Ltd, EPGOnline.org Ltd, Digital Medical Communications Ltd, and/or other third parties. These communications can take the form of electronic (email) or telephone (voice or text) contact.

Some emails or newsletters that we send include tracking to allow us to monitor, understand and improve interaction with the information that we are providing. This is very rarely monitored on a personal or individually identifiable level.

EPG Health will never share your information with third party organisations without seeking your express consent to do so. We will never treat lack of response or silence to such a request as being indicative of consent.

This privacy policy only covers the EPG Health website (www.epghealthmedia.com). Links within this website to other websites, including www.epgonline.org, are not covered by the same policy. Please always check the privacy policy for the destination website when you leave the EPG Health website.

These precautions include the use of firewalls, secure servers and connections, as well appropriate restrictions, training and confidentiality agreements for all employees and contractors that may have access to your personal information.
