PRIVACY POLICY

 

General

We at MediKredit Integrated Healthcare Solutions (Pty) Limited (“MediKredit”) are committed to maintaining the privacy and security of personal information.

 

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” is any information that identifies you or would enable someone to contact you, such as your name, e-mail address, physical address or telephone number.

 

In this Privacy Policy, “we”, “us”, “our” and other similar references mean MediKredit and “you” and “your” and other similar references mean a specific user of this website (the “Site”). By visiting our Site, you accept the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

 

Use of the Information this Site Gathers/Tracks

Any Personal Information you give us will be used only to provide the product, service or information you have requested. The non-Personal Information we gather in aggregate form may be used to improve our Site.

 

Information that you voluntarily provided will be maintained as long as MediKredit deems appropriate to fulfill the purpose for which you provided the information or until you request us to remove it.

 

Use of Cookies and Tracking Technology

Cookies enable our systems to gather information about your navigational patterns through the Site. Viewers have the option to accept or disable cookies at any time through their browsers.

If you block or refuse to accept cookies, or delete cookies between visits to our Site, you may not be able to access or use certain features or functions of our Site.

 

Our web servers automatically capture your domain name, the IP address of the web page from which you enter our Site, the pages you visit on our Site and the amount of time you spend here.

Server Statistics

We collect general statistics to track user trends on our Site. These statistics include hits to our server, the types of browsers used to access our Site, page views, and navigational patterns. The information that is collected in this manner does NOT provide us with any personally identifiable information about our users. It helps us track “where” our users are coming from. This allows us to pinpoint high traffic areas and determine the most effective ways to communicate with our users. In order to prevent the introduction of viruses and hackers into the Site we may collect information, such as IP addresses, into a log file to be used to identify potential hackers of the Site.

 

 

What security procedures does MediKredit use to protect Personal Information?

We use recognized industry physical, technical and administrative safeguards to assist us in preventing unauthorized access, maintaining data accuracy, and correctly using your Personal Information. Except as specified in this Privacy Policy, we limit access to your Personal Information to the employees, agents, and officers of MediKredit who need the information for their jobs.

Unless you specifically consent to let us do so, MediKredit will not sell, trade, rent, license or otherwise share your Personal Information to or with others. We may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns and related Site information to reputable third party vendors, but these statistics do not include Personal Information. We may disclose Personal Information we collect from you if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that disclosure is necessary (a) to obey the law or comply with legal process served on us or our affiliates; (b) to protect and defend our rights or property or the rights or property of other users of our Site; or (c) to act in an emergency to protect the personal safety of users of our Site or the public.

We encourage you to read the rules and policies of the sites you visit to further understand their procedures for collecting, using, and disclosing Personal Information.
