Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from https://www.privatecovidtests.co.uk/ (the “Site”). We take your privacy very seriously. In this privacy notice, we seek to explain to you in the clearest way possible what information we collect, how we use it and what rights you have in relation to it. We hope you take some time to read through it carefully, as it is important. If there are any terms in this privacy notice that you do not agree with, please discontinue use of our Services immediately.

Personal information we collect:

 

When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information”.

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

  • “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

  • “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.

  • “Web beacons”, “tags”, and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.

 

Additionally when you make a purchase or booking or attempt to make a purchase or booking through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information (including credit card numbers), email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Order Information”.

 

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information.

 

Consent:

When you provide us with personal information to book an appointment, complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

How do I withdraw my consent?

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at enquiries@claretdiagnostics.com or mailing us at: Claret Diagnostics, Unit 6 Minerva Bus Centre, 58-60 Minerva Road, Park Royal, London, NW10 6HJ.

How do we use your personal information?

 

We use the Order Information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders or bookings placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, booking your appointment and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations).

 

If you purchase a home-kit online, our process of fulfilment requires us to pass on your Name, E-mail, Contact Number, Product Ordered and Shipping Address to London Medical Laboratory who then ship out your order. Additionally, we also use your Order Information to:

  • Communicate with you;

  • Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud; and

  • When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.


We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).

 

Sharing you personal Information.

As a branch of London Medical Laboratory, we clearly state that Personal Information stored by us will be passed to them as part of the fulfilment process when you book an appointment or purchase a product online.

Third-party providers used by us will generally only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

We use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site - you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

All payment data is stored by Square and Wix. You may find their privacy notice link(s) here: https://squareup.com/gb/en/legal/general/privacy and https://www.wix.com/about/privacy.

 

Digital Marketing Third Parties may also be used by us including Facebook Ad Network and Google Ads. For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

Other situations where we may share your data would include the sale of the business, vendor tendering and use of consultants.

Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.

How long do we keep your information?

We will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy notice, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements).

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise such information, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, despite our safeguards and efforts to secure your information, no electronic transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorised third parties will not be able to defeat our security, and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information.
