Privacy Policy

Feet First (Southam) Ltd. (aka Health First) operates www.healthfirstsoutham.co.uk and may operate other websites. It is Health First’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website visitors

Like most website operators, Health First collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Health First’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Health First’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Health First may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Health First also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Health First blogs/sites. Health First only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of personally-identifying information

Certain visitors to Health First’s websites choose to interact with Health First in ways that require Health First to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Health First gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at www.healthfirstsoutham.co.uk to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Health First are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Health First collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Health First. Health First does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated statistics

Health First may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. Health First may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Health First does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of certain personally-identifying information

Health First discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Health First’s behalf or to provide services available at Health First’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Health First’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Health First will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Health First discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Health First believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Health First, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Health First website and have supplied your email address, Health First may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Health First and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Health First takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Business transfers

If Health First, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Health First goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Health First may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Health First and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy policy changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Health First may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Health First’s sole discretion. Health First encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a www.healthfirstsoutham.co.uk account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes.
