MedibandPlus may send information to you regarding products or services that may be of interest to you based on your personal medical record. e.g. MedibandPlus may send subscribers that have diabetes information about a new diabetes Facebook page, or information about a pharmaceutical company that is looking for people to participate in a new diabetes drug trial. No personally identifiable information will be shared with these third-party organisations – the communications would come directly from MedibandPlus. All communications will be stored securely on myMedibandPlus online account record where this will only be accessible through my secure login facility. We may from time to time also send emails to your nominated email account.
As you browse MedibandPLus, advertising cookies will be placed on your computer so that we can understand what you are interested in. Our display advertising partner, AdRoll, then enables us to present you with retargeting advertising on other sites based on your previous interaction with MedibandPlus. The techniques our partners employ do not collect personal information such as your name, email address, postal address or telephone number. You can visit this page to opt out of AdRoll and their partners’ targeted advertising.
The following sets out our information gathering practices for accessing and browsing the MedibandPlus website including use of Forums, the use of the MedibandPlus ID Card and/or wristband or any other identification device used by the customer and the myMedibandPlus Online Membership and explains how information is collected, protected and utilised.
Disclosure and Use of Personal Information
We use the data that we collect from you for purposes which may include: providing our users with a personalised service; processing registrations and enquiries; providing you with information about enhancements and alterations to our products and services, (provided that you ask to receive such information).
We may also disclose your information to successors in title to our business or in accordance with a properly executed court order or otherwise required to do so by law.
We also use information in aggregate form (so that no individual user is identified): to build up marketing profiles; to aid strategic development; to provide data to medical charities, (for example as to the number of individuals in a geographic region that might be suffering from diabetes); to audit usage of the site.
All personal, identifiable information is retained by MedibandPlus indefinitely unless you specifically request that the information be deleted.
The MedibandPlus Website may contain links to other websites. MedibandPlus is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites. Please read the privacy statements of the linked web sites that you visit.
When you provide MedibandPlus with personal information, that information may be sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. In addition, that information may be used, stored and processed outside of the country where you entered the information. Whenever MedibandPlus handles personal information, regardless of where this occurs, MedibandPlus takes every precaution to ensure that your information is treated securely. This is often implemented by encrypting the information and by storing the information in a secure environment.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 per cent secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, MedibandPlus cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

When you complete a registration for the MedibandPlus ID product or the myMedibandPlus Online Membership you will be given the choice of receiving information from MedibandPlus about present or future MedibandPlus products and services as well as details of changes to and enhancements of our products and services.
