We take the privacy of our Application users very seriously. We ask that you read this Policy carefully as it contains important information about how we will use your personal data.
For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the’Act’), Medic Bleep Limited (‘we’ or ‘us’) is the ‘data controller’ (ie the company who is responsible for, and controls the processing of, your personal data).
When you register with us and use the Application, you provide:
Your password is cryptographically hashed and your email address is encrypted.
We will also obtain personal information you provide when you contact us for any other reason by any medium, for example to send us feedback or report a problem with the Application.
You will also be asked to provide us with information verifying you are a licensed healthcare professional, which we will cross-reference with publicly available data to ensure that you actually are a licensed healthcare professional.
These information elements are referred to collectively as your "Personal User Information." We collect and hold this information for the purpose of administering your use of the Application.
When you use the Application, you will have the ability to upload and share with your team messages, information and images, including information and images regarding specific patient cases. In respect of this information, you are the data controller and we are the data processor.
We confirm that we comply with the Act and the Caldicott Principles and we have ISO 27001:2013 certification.
Your patients’ confidentiality is of the utmost importance to us and consistent with the requirements of the 7th principle of the Act, we have technical and organisational measures in place against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data held or processed by us. For example, every message is encrypted so it is only seen by you and your team and images are only kept in the messages you send so you do not need to worry about deleting messages once a patient has been treated.
We do not store IP addresses or location information relating to images uploaded by users.
