International Privacy

PHS UK strives to comply with all applicable laws that are designed to protect your privacy. Although legal requirements may vary from country to country, we seek to adhere to the principles set forth in this Privacy Policy even if PHS UK transfers your Personal Information from your country to other countries that do not provide equivalent laws to protect your Personal Information.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

The Website may use "cookies" and other tracking technologies. A "cookie" is a small text file stored on your computer that may be used, for example, to collect information about website activity. Some cookies and other technologies may serve to recall Personal Information previously indicated by a user. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you may be unable to use those services or engage in activities on the Website that require the placement of cookies.
Tracking technologies may record information such as Internet domain and host names; Internet protocol (IP) addresses; browser software and operating system types; clickstream patterns; and dates and times that the Website is accessed. PHS UK’s use of cookies and other tracking technologies allows us to improve the Website and your experience using the Website. We may use this information to understand how our users navigate the Website, and to determine common traffic patterns, including what website you came from. PHS UK may also analyze information that does not contain Personal Information for trends and statistics.

IP Addresses

An IP address is a number that is assigned automatically to your computer whenever you use the World Wide Web. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. PHS UK may collect IP addresses for system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers and partners and to audit the use of the Website. When visitors request pages from the Website, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We typically do not link IP addresses to Personal Information. This means that a visitor's session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a visitor if required by law, when disclosure is required to maintain the security and integrity of the Website or to protect any user's security or the security of other persons, consistent with applicable laws.

Privacy Protection

To protect your privacy, PHS UK has adopted the following principles: Notice, Choice, Security, and Access/Accuracy.

Notice

This Privacy Policy provides notice regarding PHS UK’s collection and use of Personal Information.

Choice

You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to PHS UK. If you choose not to provide the requested Personal Information, you can still visit most parts of the Website, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services that involve PHS UK’s interaction with you. If you chose to have a relationship with PHS UK, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.

Security

Wherever your Personal Information may be held within PHS UK or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the Personal Information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we have taken appropriate steps to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or otherwise warrant the security of any information you provide to us or from the Website, and therefore you use the Website at your own risk. For any additional information about the security measures we employ please write or send an email to Performance Health Systems UK Ltd, First Floor, Unit 16, Silver Road, Shepherd’s Bush, London, W12 7SG, UK , info@powerplate.com.

Access/Accuracy

To the extent that you do provide us with Personal Information, PHS UK wishes to maintain accurate Personal Information. Where we collect Personal Information from you on the Website, our goal is to provide a means of contacting PHS UK should you need to update or correct that Personal Information. If for any reason those means are unavailable or inaccessible, you may send updates and corrections about your Personal Information by writing or sending an email to Performance Health Systems UK Ltd, Unit 16, Silver Road, Shepherd’s Bush, London, W12 7SG, UK info@powerplate.com. We will make reasonable efforts to incorporate the changes in your Personal Information that we hold as soon as practicable.

Third Party Services

Third parties provide certain services available on the Website on PHS UK’s behalf. PHS UK may provide information, including Personal Information that PHS UK collects on the Website to third-party service providers to help us deliver programs, products, information, and services. Service providers are also an important means by which PHS UK maintains the Website and mailing lists. PHS UK will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third-party service providers are obligated to protect your Personal Information on PHS UK's behalf.
PHS UK does not intend to transfer Personal Information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to protect your Personal Information unless such transfer is legally required. Similarly, it is against PHS UK's policy to sell Personal Information collected through the Website without your consent.

Links to Other Websites

The Website may contain links or references to independently owned and/or operated websites that PHS UK believes might be of interest to users. PHS UK does not control the content of these links or of the websites linked to. These other websites may send you their own cookies, collect data, and/or solicit Personal Information. PHS UK disclaims any and all responsibility for the content or privacy practices of such websites. Once you have clicked on a third party link and leave the Website, you must read the privacy policy of the other website to see how your Personal Information will be handled.

Commitment

PHS UK is committed to privacy and we are involved in and support current industry initiatives to preserve individual privacy rights on the Internet. Protecting your privacy online is an evolving area, and the Website is constantly evolving to meet these demands.
