Types of information collected and held
“Personal information” about you is information or an opinion about you or which is reasonably identifiable as you, whether or not the information or opinion is true and whether or not the information is recorded in a material form.
Princeton Health collects and processes personal information about you that is reasonably necessary for us to perform our functions and activities, including providing the best possible quality of customer service to you.
Princeton Health does not collect your personal information, unless you provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. This means you are under no obligation to provide personal information to us, although a failure to provide personal information in some circumstances may limit our ability to provide products, services or information to you.
The types of personal information that we collect includes:
- your name, email address and other contact details;
- any questions or comments that you may post;
- if you are visiting any of our websites, the IP address of your machine when connected to the internet and the domain name from which you are accessing the internet; and
- if you are a Healthcare Professional or a Princeton Health third party contractor, we may collect your professional details, your business details and details of the interaction we have with you.
- If you are a supplier, bank account details if required for payments.
How we collect and hold personal information
Princeton Health collects your personal information that you voluntarily and knowingly provide when:
- you purchase one of our products and you apply for a credit account with us;
- you access our Website;
- you contact us in order to make an enquiry about us or a particular Princeton Health product;
Princeton Health takes reasonable steps to ensure that all personal information is kept secure in accordance with reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. However, for personal information collected online and stored in electronic databases, you acknowledge that no security system is impenetrable and that the security of those databases can never be guaranteed. Princeton Health also cannot guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the internet. Accordingly, any personal information or other information which you transmit to us is transmitted at your own risk. Nevertheless, once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable steps to preserve the security of such information and we ensure that there are various security protections in place. Where it is no longer necessary for us to hold your personal information, we delete the information.
For what purposes does Princeton Health collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information
Princeton Health will use or disclose your personal information only for the purpose for which you provide it to us. We will not use or disclose personal information about you for any secondary purpose, unless you consent to that use or disclosure; or you would reasonably expect the use or disclosure in the circumstances, and that secondary purpose is:
(a) in the case of non-sensitive information: related to the primary purpose for which we have collected that information, and
(b) in the case of sensitive information: directly related to the primary purpose.
