The collection of personal information and the purposes for which it is collected

Personal information is defined as any information which relates to a natural person and allows that person to be identified.

You may visit our website without providing any personal information about yourself. In this case, our web server will only collect the IP address that you used to access the site. We will be able to use this information to determine the number of visits to our site and the average time spent visiting it, to establish user statistics, identify which web pages were viewed, and measure overall site performance.

The only personal information we collect is the information you voluntarily provide to us when submitting online forms to contact us or subscribe to our newsletters or the information transmitted to us offline in the context of a commercial relationship between you and us.

This information is collected to:

·       Manage subscriptions to our newsletters, effectively communicate with you, and promote our products and services.
·       Manage your medical record and our contractual relationship with you as health professionals.
