GLOBAL HEALTH'S COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY
This privacy statement applies to Global Health Limited (Global Health), its subsidiaries and websites ('Sites'). It states how we collect information from you and how we use it. Global Health is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy as a client and as a visitor to our Sites.
In order to maximise the benefit to users of Global Health Sites, we gather information about our users and this privacy statement discloses what information Global Health gathers and how we use it.
National Privacy Principles
The National Privacy Principles established by the Privacy Act 1988 apply to Global Health Ltd of Level 11, 607 Bourke Street Melbourne, Victoria, 3000, Australia.
Why does Global Health collect information about users?
Information is requested from our website users in order to deliver better services and solutions to our clients, and potential clients.
Global Health Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:
1. Automatic Collection of Information:
If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website or download information, our system will automatically gather and store certain anonymous information that cannot be linked to a specific individual. This information does not identify you personally and is used in an aggregate way to help us improve our website and tell us the number of visitors to our site each day. Our Web server automatically collects and records the following information:
- The visitor's domain name
- The visitor's IP address
- Aggregate information on what pages are accessed
- The name and release number of web browser software used
2. Optional Permission-based collection of Information
We offer the following services which require voluntary submission of your email address and some personal information:
Registration for Customer Support Access
The majority of general information does not require Global Health to gather information about people viewing the Sites. However, in order to access client-specific support, content and features of some of our Sites, we require registration, and the disclosure of minimal personal information in order to authorise client access.
We may offer a free electronic newsletter to users. Global Health gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from our mailing lists by using the 'Unsubscribe' function.
Access to Message boards, Forums and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) is usually only available to registered Global Health clients.
Access to Product Updates or file
As a service to our registered clients, we may make software updates available for direct download from our Sites, or files that have been created by other users for sharing with our broader user community. This will not be available for all software applications. In order to access and download these updates or user-created files, we require clients to be registered.
Downloads of Product information
As a service to users of our Sites, we may make product information available for direct download. Global Health gathers minimal personal information of users who voluntarily request this Product Information.
Downloads of Trial Software
As a service to visitors to our Sites, we may make some of our applications available for direct download for the purpose of a software trial. Global Health may request personal information of users who voluntarily request this software trial.
"E-mail this to a friend" Service
Visitors to our Sites may choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend". The users must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
We may, from time to time, offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues concerning Global Health and our brands. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user(s) details. Global Health may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, to ensure that each user votes only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users, and only exists for the life of the poll.
Global Health may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our partners such as marketing agencies and technology solution providers. We do not share any identifying information about specific individuals with any third parties. We do not re-sell our database onto third parties.
Global Health tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Global Health does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, and browser type, by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
We use tracking information to determine which areas of our Sites users like, and don't like, based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in the Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users, but we do not track which terms a particular user enters.
With Whom Will the Information Be Shared?
The personally identifiable information gathered during your visit to our sites is not shared with any organisation for any purpose.
- We do not rent, sell, exchange or in any way provide personally identifiable information to any third-party organisation.
- We do not share newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.
