Privacy Policy Introduction
The Monte Hospital is committed to protecting your privacy. We have established this Online Privacy Policy for your benefit.

Personal Information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address and an email address or other contact information, whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit The Monte Hospital's web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself.

The Monte Hospital is registered with the Information Commissioner's Office in the UK and abides by its rules, regulations and policies concerning data protection. The Monte Hospital also strives to comply with all applicable laws around the globe that are designed to protect your privacy. Although legal requirements may vary from country to country, The Monte Hospital will do this even if, in connection with the above, we need to transfer your Personal Information from your country to a country that may not require an adequate level of protection. Our goal is to always provide adequate protection for any Personal Information which we may have collected in the course of business.

Web Information We Collect
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and/or a set of numbers, that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a visitor requests a page from any web page within The Monte Hospital Online Shop, our web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and/or IP address. The domain name and/or IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of The Monte Hospital Online Shop, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. See also "Disclosure to Third Parties" below. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals.

The Monte Hospital may offer access to services that require registration. In that event, your registration and/or contact information may be used to send notification to you of The Monte Hospital's products and/or services by e-mail. We maintain a strict "No-Spam" policy which means that we do not sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third party, without your consent or as permitted by this Privacy Policy.

Web Information We Do Not Collect
When you visit our site, we do not collect your name, email address or any other Personal Information unless you provide it to us.

If you are making a purchase from The Monte Hospital Online Shop your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number and expiration date are required in order to complete the transaction. This information is collected on our behalf by Total Web Systems, our credit card partner. TWS are accredited by the credit card issuers as a Level 1 secure collection agency and they will never disclose your credit card details or any other personal information for any purpose except as may be required by law. The Monte Hospital neither collects nor stores any credit card information.

Wherever and whenever The Monte Hospital collects Personal Information we include a link to this Privacy Policy if it is possible for us to do so.

Wherever your Personal Information may be held within The Monte Hospital or on its behalf, we work to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect it from unauthorized access or disclosure.

The Monte Hospital Online Shop may use a shopping cart feature that safeguards your Personal Information by using industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificates. SSL software encodes data transferred between you and the server. The Monte Hospital cannot be responsible for any Personal Information you disclose to third party affiliates that do not use SSL software or do not offer a secure way to transfer information.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

Third Parties
Some pages on the The Monte Hospital Online Shop web site may include links to third party web sites. These sites are governed by their own privacy statements, and The Monte Hospital is not responsible for their operation. Users submitting information to or through third party web sites should review the privacy statement of those sites before providing any Personal Information.

Users should always keep in mind that whenever they voluntarily disclose Personal Information online (e.g., through e-mail, discussion lists, or elsewhere) that information can be collected and used by others.

Disclosure to Third Parties
The Monte Hospital will disclose Personal Information and/or an IP address when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
  1. Cooperate with the investigations of suspected unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on The Monte Hospital,
  2. Protect and defend the rights or property of The Monte Hospital Online Shop and related properties, or visitors to The Monte Hospital Online Shop and related properties,

The Monte Hospital uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. The Monte Hospital reserves the right to transfer all such information in connection with the sale of all or part of The Monte Hospital's capital, stock or assets. Furthermore, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties that receive the information. We are not responsible for such third party privacy policies or how they treat information about their users.
