Privacy Policy

This is the main privacy policy for BOOST PHYSIO Ltd and for certain services provided through these and other and BOOST PHYSIO Ltd websites and applications. At BOOST PHYSIO Ltd. we collect different types of information about our users for four main reasons:

  1. To provide personalised services unique to individual users.
  2. To help us to monitor and improve the services we offer
  3. If we have permission from the user, to market services to them.

Our principles

  1. We do our very best to protect your privacy by using security technology appropriately. This means we make sure that we have appropriate security measures to protect your information; and we make sure that when we ask another organisation to provide a service for us, they have appropriate security measures.
  2. We will respect your privacy. You should receive marketing emails only from us and, if you agree, from other organisations we have carefully chosen. We will make sure it is clear when you can make these choices, for example, we have boxes you need to tick if you want to receive marketing. However, we may email you occasionally with information or questions about your registration, your subscription account or postings, for example, with reminders, warnings or copyright requests.
  3. We will collect and use individual user details only if we have your permission or we have sensible business reasons for doing so, such as collecting enough information to manage subscriptions.
  4. We will be clear in our dealings with you as to what information about you we will collect and how we will use it.
  5. We will use personal information only for the purposes for which it was originally collected and we will make sure we delete it securely.
  6. Our site is accessible via the internet. This means that people around the world who access our website can see anything you post on the website, for example, comments about an article.
  7. If we or our service providers transfer any information out of the European Economic Area (EEA), it will only be done with the relevant protection (stated under UK law) being in place.

How we use your information

What information do we collect?

We collect information on you: – when you register or become a member of the BOOST PHYSIO Ltd website – when you use the website – through cookies – if you choose to reveal information in postings, and – when you enter sales promotions and competitions.

Certain services that we provide may involve us collecting extra information (Membership, for example), such as where you are, so the service can be provided as designed. This may also apply to certain apps that you download, or which we provide.

Registration

The minimum information we need to register you is your name and email address . We will ask you more questions for different services, including sales promotions. Unless we say otherwise, you have to answer all the registration questions.

We may also ask some other, voluntary questions during registration for certain services (for example, professional networks) so we can gain a clearer understanding of who you are. This also allows us to personalise services for you. After you have registered, we may send you emails we think may interest you. At any time you can decide not to receive these emails and will be able to ‘unsubscribe’.

Use of Cookies

We use cookies for a number of reasons. 1 For statistical purposes to track how many users we have and how often they visit our websites. We collect information listing which of our pages are most frequently visited, and by which types of users and from which countries. 2 We use other organisations to collect anonymous user information, sometimes through cookies and web beacons,(information embedded in images which allow them to analyse how the website is being used and the number of visitors). 3 We and other advertisers may use statistical cookies to track who has seen an advert and clicked on it. You can find more information on this in the online behavioural advertising section of this privacy policy. 4 Placing cookies on your computer means we can show you adverts that you might be interested in, and allows us to control the number of times you see them and measure how effective the ad campaign has been. 5 We may use ‘Flash’ cookies to store your preferences for your media player (for example, volume and so on). If we don’t use them, you may not be able to watch some video content. You can turn cookies off but if you do this, you may not be able to use all services on our websites and you might see more pop-ups and other advertising. This is because we won’t be able to limit what you see by using cookies. However, you will still be able to see our editorial content. 6 We or other companies may use cookies to suggest and deliver content which we believe may interest you.

By using the sites you are agreeing to the use of cookies as described.

Data protection

Under the UK Data Protection Act 1998 we have to say who the ‘data controller’ is BOOST PHYSIO Ltd and services provided through our websites. The data controller is the organisation responsible for protecting information and, in our case, is BOOST PHYSIO Ltd, 16 Parson Street, Hendon, NW4 1QB

If you would like access to or a copy of the personal information we hold about you, or have any questions about how we may use it or to make a complaint, please contact the Data Protection Manager at the address shown above.

Changes to the privacy policy

Should we elect to change our privacy policy we will post the changes here. Where the changes are significant, we may also choose to email all our registered users with the new details. Where required by law, will we obtain your consent to make these changes.
