Keeping You In The Know About Where Your Information Won't Go
Medify identify as the sole data controllers.
In order to provide the best service to our students, we will collect information to provide you with a service and or goods, invoices, service updates or to provide you with promotional offers.
We will collect:
We collect this information for displaying and thus calculating your performances in the platform to provide accurate summary of your performances as well as predictions in final exam. Also, this allows us to send news items and marketing content to students and service updates. We ask for optional information (labelled above) to give you a better experience as a student to plan your revision.
All students need to accept these terms and conditions to provide their information, so that we may provide you with the service, including processing of your marks, and also marking of your personal statements. Without your acceptance of these terms, we would be unable to provide you with our full service.
A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred (through your browser) from a website to the hard drive of your computer. The cookie identifies your browser but will not let a website know any personal data about you, such as your name and/or address. These files are then used by websites to identify when users revisit that website.
We also use Google Analytics to monitor how the Site is used. Google Analytics collects information anonymously and generates reports detailing information such as the number of visits to the Site, where visitors generally came from, how long they stayed on the Site, and which pages they visited. Google Analytics places several persistent cookies on your computer’s hard drive. These do not collect any personal data.
Whilst we do not share personal information with third parties, we do use various service providers for our internal systems. They have access to and may collect information only as needed to perform their functions and are not permitted to share or use information for any other purpose. Where we provide data to third party service providers for them to provide data analysis or statistical services for us, we will only ever send them aggregated, anonymised data. The third-party providers will not share or pass on or even hold your data for longer than necessary to perform the services that they are providing to us.
Where possible we are required to give you the option to restrict use of your data. This will reduce the risk of a data breach for marketing purposes and sharing with third parties.
Any information that we hold about you is stored on our secure servers and all information, including payment transactions are encrypted. Only authorised personnel are permitted to access personal data during their work. Whilst we do our best to protect your personal data, no information transferred over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure and you provide your information at your own risk.
We are passionate about keeping your data safe. That’s why we have various systems and policies in place to ensure we are a safe haven for your data. All computer systems are encrypted and all software used is password protected. Also, Anti-virus software is installed on all devices.
We email students with service updates, as well as internal marketing of new products relevant to the student. Students are able to opt out of marketing via the opt out option within the email itself in the footer. When you request services with us and you have opted in (or in any other case, if you have opted in to receive marketing by email or text message), we may contact you by e-mail or text message with information about other goods and services that we offer that are similar to those that you have already purchased or enquired about and we think may interest you based on the information we hold about you. We may also use your contact details to contact you by phone or post with details of products and services that we think may be of interest to you (unless you have told us you don't want to receive these communications, or you are registered with the Telephone Preference Service). We will hold your data for a period of 18 months before redeﬁning consent from yourself.
Sometimes we will use your data to help us improve the quality and functionality of the services that we offer.
If you wish to access, correct, update or request deletion of your personal data, you can do so at any time.
You can object to the processing of your personal data, ask us to restrict processing of your personal data or request portability of your personal data.
You have the right to opt-in to marketing communications that we can send to you at any time. You can exercise this right by opting in to the marketing e-mails we send you. Similarly, if we have collected and processed your personal data with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal data conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your personal data. The Information Commissioner's Office is the data protection authority for the UK.
