Controllers of personal information
Any personal information provided or to be gathered by Meridian is controlled by Meridian Technique Limited, 2 Venture Road, Southampton Science Park, Southampton SO16 7NP, United Kingdom.
What information do we collect? How do we use it?
When registering or buying our product you may provide personal information which individually identifies you. We use that data to provide support in business related or IT operations and to perform additional processing where necessary (e.g. eligibility check from legislation or regulatory point of view).
We may also ask for your telephone and fax numbers which enables us to contact you urgently if there is a problem with your order. For some international deliveries this number may be given to our couriers.
We may also use the information we collect to occasionally notify you about important functionality changes, problems or upgrades to our products and services.
Submission of the registration form indicates your consent to receive relevant marketing messages from us unless you have indicated an objection to receive such messages by ticking the ‘opt-out’ box during registration. If you would prefer not to receive such messages you can send a blank email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘opt out of marketing messages’.
We will retain your registration information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to request that we no longer use your registration information to provide you services contact us at email@example.com. We will retain and use your registration information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
How does Meridian handle data provided as OrthoView input/output
Meridian products deal with sensitive patient information. Including the web deployed products, OrthoView gives the user full control over accessing or administering the locations where these items are stored. Saving and handling such data in appropriate location is solely the responsibility of the OrthoView user. The web deployed products do not use Cloud network storage for X-Ray or exported materials.
In the course of providing technical support to you, we may sometimes have incidental access to data that you have provided to us or data that is located on your system. This data may contain information about you, your organization’s employees, customers, partners, or suppliers . Such data will only be used for the purposes for which it was provided - that is, to fix OrthoView defects or to support Meridian products or services. We will not disclose it to other parties, except to contractors of Meridian who we may use to help us fix defects or provide support; and we will delete, destroy or return it when it is no longer required. If you elect to have us return physical media, you will be responsible for arranging for return transport of the media.
How does Meridian protect customer information?
When you place orders or access your account information, we offer the use of a secure server. Furthermore, as required by the UK Data Protection Legislation, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we are able to disclose sensitive information to you.
In addition, we reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, or the rights of others, or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our web sites.
Will Meridian disclose the information it collects to outside parties?
Meridian does not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others. When you order templates, we may contact the Orthopaedic Manufacturers to obtain product data. We will only notify these companies of the name and address of your Institution unless we have permission from a user. We may notify you of product recalls and updates if required. Also Meridian may provide aggregate statistics about customers, sales, and related information to reputable third party vendors, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information.
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mails, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analysing data, providing marketing assistance and providing customer services. Such companies and individuals will have access to personal information needed to perform these functions, but may not use it for any other purposes and are required to process the data in accordance with the UK's Data Protection legislation.
