HealthLink Website/Blog Privacy Policy

HealthLink is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to its website, subscribers to its blog alert emails and those providing contact information. In addition, HealthLink is opposed to unauthorised commercial email delivery, otherwise known as spam. Please read the following Privacy and Spam Policy to understand how your personal information is treated.

What Information Does HealthLink Collect?

HealthLink only collects user-provided personally identifiable information. This information is provided when website visitors complete one of HealthLink’s online forms (examples include blog subscriptions or contact forms). The following list includes ways HealthLink collects personal information from website visitors and the type of information collected:

Blog Subscriptions:

To subscribe to HealthLink’s blog alert emails (which are similar to an electronic newsletter), it requests the following required information: (i) name, and (ii) email address. The provision of this information is mandatory in order to receive HealthLink’s blog alert emails. HealthLink relies on a third-party service, Aweber, to collect contact information and distribute blog alert emails.

Contact Forms:

To contact HealthLink for the purposes of evaluating or engaging its services or to answer your questions, we utilise numerous forms throughout our site. Required information varies depending on the form and normally includes (i) name, and (ii) email address. The provision of this information is mandatory in order to receive a response from HealthLink.

Does HealthLink Share My Information?

HealthLink will not share, rent or sell your personally identifiable information with third parties.

How Does HealthLink Use My Information?

Personal information collected by HealthLink is used primarily for the purpose in which it is collected: to facilitate the distribution of a blog alert email, document or inquiry to interested recipients. In addition, HealthLink may use your information as follows:

  • Information may be used in aggregate with other subscribers to review the effectiveness of marketing programmes and to analyse other general demographic trends
  • We may occasionally contact you to conduct surveys or to obtain feedback on our products, our website, industry trends or other aspects of our business
  • To notify you of new information or services that may be of interest to you
  • To send promotional materials

What If There Are Changes to This Privacy and Spam Policy?

If HealthLink changes its Privacy and Spam Policy, HealthLink will post those changes on its privacy page at http://blog.healthlink.net/privacy-policy. If at any point HealthLink decides to use personal information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, it will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice whether or not HealthLink uses their information in this new manner. By default HealthLink will use information in accordance with the Privacy and Spam Policy under which the information was collected.
