The Physio Store’s Commitment to Data Privacy Protection
Protecting the security and privacy of your personal information is important to The Physio Store, therefore, we conduct our business in compliance with applicable laws on data privacy protection and data security. We hope the policy outlined below will help you understand what data The Physio Store may collect, how The Physio Store uses and safeguards that data and with whom we may share it.
Through The Physio Store Web Site (the “Web Site”), The Physio Store will not collect any personal information about you (e.g. your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address), unless you voluntarily choose to provide us with it (e.g. by registration, survey), provide your consent, or unless otherwise permitted by applicable laws and regulations.
Purpose of Use
When you do provide us with personal information through the Web Site, we usually use it to respond to your inquiry, process your order or provide you access to specific information or offers. Also, to support our customer relationship with you:
• We may store and process personal information and share it with our affiliates to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services; or
• We (or a third party on our behalf) may use personal information to contact you about a The Physio Store offer in support of your needs or to conduct online surveys to understand better our customers’ needs.
If you choose not to have your personal information used to support our customer relationship (especially direct marketing or market research), we will respect your choice. We do not sell or otherwise market your personal information to third parties, except to The Physio Store affiliates.
The Physio Store will collect, use or disclose personal information supplied by you online only for the purposes disclosed to you, unless the disclosure:
• is a use of the personal information for any additional purpose that is directly related to the original purpose for which the personal information was collected,
• is necessary to prepare, negotiate and perform a contract with you,
• is required by law or the competent governmental or judicial authorities,
• is necessary to establish or preserve a legal claim or defense, or
• is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activities, such as willful attacks on The Physio Store’s information technology systems.
Non-Personal Information Collected Automatically
When you access our Web Sites, we may automatically (i.e., not by registration) collect non-personal information (e.g. type of Internet browser and operating system used, domain name of the Web Site from which you came, number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed). We may use this information to monitor the attractiveness of our Web Site and improve its performance or content.
Communications or Utilization Data
Through your use of telecommunications services to access our Web Site, your communications data (e.g. Internet protocol address) or utilization data (e.g. information on the beginning, end and extent of each access, and information on the telecommunications services you accessed) are technically generated and could conceivably relate to personal information. To the extent that there is a compelling necessity, the collection, processing and use of your communications or utilization data will occur and will be performed in accordance with the applicable data privacy protection legal framework.
In order to provide you with a product, service or information, you may voluntarily submit personal information to us for purposes such as registration, queries and correspondence, making a purchase, obtaining a quote or other information, and participating in contests and surveys. If you are known to The Physio Store as a registered user of an online service, we may combine and store personal information about your use of our Web Site and the online information you have provided with certain other online and offline information we may have collected.
Occasionally, we may send you e-mail communications with information that may be useful to you, including information about the products and services of The Physio Store, its affiliates and other third parties with whom we have a commercial relationship. We will include instructions on how to unsubscribe and inform us of your preferences if you decide you do not want to receive any future marketing or promotional e-mails from The Physio Store. However, if you are a customer, supplier or otherwise have a commercial relationship with The Physio Store, to ensure that you receive important information, you agree that we may send you non-marketing related information when necessary.
Our Web Site is not, and is not intended to be, used by children nor is it used to knowingly collect information from or market to children. The Physio Store encourages all parents and guardians to instruct children in the safe and responsible use of their personal information while using the Internet.
Our Web Sites may contain links to other web sites which are provided to you as a convenience only. You are advised that other third party web sites may have different privacy practices than The Physio Store, and The Physio Store has no responsibility for such third party web sites.
To protect your personal information against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration and against unauthorized disclosure or access, The Physio Store uses technical and organizational security measures.
