Some information might be collected automatically such as your computer/device’s IP address, device type, operating system or browser type. This may happen when you visit our website automatically by the analytics software used which helps us get a better idea of how the website is used so we can be proactive in making it better/easier for you to use. Some of this information is collected using cookies. This type of information is not used to identify you.

 

Other personal information we collect might be given to us by third parties.

Security of your personal data

We do not give out personal information and prior to discussing your personal data with you we may occasionally request proof of identity before doing so.

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

The length of time we keep your personal data depends on what it is and whether we have an ongoing business need to retain it – for example, to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements or until a debt is paid.

We will retain your personal data for as long as we have a relationship with you and for a period of 5 years afterwards where we have an ongoing business need to retain it. After that time we will make sure the information is deleted. If you would like us to delete your account details prior to this, please contact us via our customer service team.

wholehealth.clinic does not create cookies. Rather, by using third party traffic log cookies it helps identify which pages are being used or if our website is useful or not. From this we can fix change, remove or improve pages. Quite honestly it is a very boring subject for us and is only used to improve the website and how it functions.

A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than information you choose to share with us. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
