Our public SIP Platform does not enable our visitors to communicate with other visitors or post information to be accessed by others. SIP Platform includes links to third parties. Such third party Web service providers may collect personal data about their visitors.
We automatically log personal data by such means as programming and may link information automatically logged by such means with personal data about specific individuals. We do so for the purposes of technical administration of the Web site, customer administration, marketing and personalisation of content in our Web site. Our Web site uses "cookies" for technical reasons and personalization. A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.
The SIP Platform site also measures the performance of its site in order to improve and customise to better serve our visitors. During your visit, the SIP Platform site automatically collects and temporarily stores the following information about your computer and your visit:
- The domain and host from which you access the Internet
- The Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to the SIP Platform, if applicable
- The date and time you arrived at our site and how long you spent on the site and which pages you visited
- Your Internet protocol (IP) address and
- Your computer's operating system and browser software
In order to employ personalization functionality, you will occasionally be asked to provide personal information e.g. name, address, telephone number, email, areas of interest or profession. The SIP Platform will use the information to comply with your requests of information. No material consequences will result from your refusal to submit such information. Please be aware, however, that if you decide not to provide the information requested at a given point, you may not be able to use some of the user convenient features of this Web site, e.g. areas reserved for medically or pharmaceutically trained persons. The SIP Platform collects registration data so we can contact you about updates. Although we retain customer records, you can choose not to receive future emails or other consumer communications from the SIP Platform by selecting the appropriate box on the registration form or in the personalisation section. At any time, upon your request, the SIP Platform will delete or modify personal information that you provided in written form earlier.
While we collect the personal data that you may volunteer while using our services, we do not collect information about our visitors from other sources, such as public records or bodies, or private organisations. We may periodically collect and use personal data for the additional purpose of conducting market research.
If we wish to use personal data for a new purpose, we offer you means to consent to this new purpose by indicating this in a box at the point on the site where personal data is collected.
We do not knowingly collect personal data from children. We therefore do not take specific steps to protect the privacy of children who may disclose their personal data or that of their families to us.
