Disclosure of your information
We may have to share your personal information for the purposes set out above with the following third parties:
|Service providers||including those who provide:|
– Webhosting, IT, and system administration services
– Metrics and analytics
|Professional advisers||including lawyers, bankers, auditors, and insurers who provide consultancy, banking, legal, insurance, and accounting services.|
|Authorities||including regulators and other authorities who require reporting of processing activities in certain circumstances|
|Corporate partners||includes third parties who may invest in our business or to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy notice|
|Research partners||includes universities and other research institutions we may partner with to carry out research.|
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
Some of our external third parties may, from time to time, be based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and the United Kingdom (UK) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA and UK.
If we transfer your personal data out of the EEA and UK, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- The country has been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission. For further details, see European Commission: Adequacy of the protection of personal data in non-EU countries.
- If we use certain service providers based out with the EEA and UK, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe and the UK. For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries.
- In any other case, we will obtain your explicit consent before any transfer takes place.
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA and UK.
We have, and continue to put in place appropriate security measures in accordance with industry best practice to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to only those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know.
All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access our Service, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
How long we store your personal data for
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
Where we anonymise personal data (i.e. so that it can no longer be associated with you) for further research or statistical purposes, then we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
The data which is sent between HCPs and Patients using the Service and any Patient data is not retained by us and we are only processors of this data. Video calls are not recorded by us. We retain messages sent via our Service between an HCP and a Patient but only for access and review by the HCP for the purpose of managing the Patient’s health.

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. Please read through the table below to find out more about these rights.
|Your right||What this means|
|Access to your information||You have the right to ask for a copy of the information which we hold on you (commonly known as a ‘data subject access request’). This enables you to receiva copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.|
|Correcting personal data|
You have the right to request that we correct personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data that you provide to us.
It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current, so please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
|Deleting personal data||You may ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. This is more commonly known as the ‘right to be forgotten’. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law.|
Please note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request to delete or remove personal data for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request
|Objecting to processing||You have the right to stop us processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. We will always inform you if we intend to use your personal data for such purposes, or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You could then exercise your right to prevent such marketing by contacting us.|
You may also object to us processing your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
|Restriction of processing||This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:|
– if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy;
– where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it;
– where you need us to hold the data event if we no longer require it as you need it establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or
– you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
|Withdrawing consent||Where we are relying on consent to process your personal data you can withdraw your consent at any time. Please note this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent.|
|Review by an independant authoriy||You will always have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory body. The relevant authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner’s Office. If you do have a complaint, we would appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO, so please do contact us in the first instance if possible.|
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
