VCare24 security measures

VCare24 takes security measures in line with data protection regulations. VCare24 has security measures in place designed to prevent data loss, to preserve data integrity, and to regulate access to the data. Only authorised VCare24 employees and authorised employees of our Third-Party service providers (a list of such providers is available on request) have access to your personal data. All VCare24 employees who have access to your personal data are required to adhere to the VCare24 Privacy Notice and all third-party service providers are requested by VCare24 to ensure that any of their employees who have access to your personal data have signed non-disclosure agreements. In addition, contracts are in place with such third -party service providers acting as data processors for VCare24 that have access to your personal data, to ensure that the level of security required in your jurisdiction is in place, and that your personal data is processed only as instructed by VCare24.

How VCare24 uses your personal data

Your personal data will only be used for the purposes for which you provided it to VCare24, as indicated to you at the time you provided your personal data. It will also be used to administer, support and obtain feedback on the level of our services, to help prevent breaches of security, the law or our contract terms. It may also be disclosed, including a disclosure to entities based outside the European Economic Area (EEA), to third parties (as part of the information generally contained in business) in the event of a sale of the business, or a reorganisation of the business, or as otherwise required or permitted by law or applicable regulator.

Who VCare24 discloses your personal data to and why

VCare24 will never share your personal data with any Third-Party (i.e a party other than an entity within the VCare24 Group) business organisation that intends to use it for their own purposes, other than as required by law. VCare24, may transfer or disclose your personal data to another data controller in the VCare24 Group to be used for similar purposes, at its discretion, and you hereby consent to such transfer or disclosure. If your personal data is transferred or disclosed to another data controller within the VCare24 Group, that other data controller shall have the same rights and obligations with regard to your personal data as VCare24. With your consent, VCare24 may share your personal data with Third-Parties (i.e. parties other than entities within the VCare24 Group) such as those who assist us in providing the products and services and who perform technical operations, but only in the strictly limited circumstances set out below:

Our Third-Party Data Processors (service providers such as our fulfilment and activation partners and digital agencies, hosting providers, data storage providers and other technical partners) who help us administer this website, or process the data submitted to it, may have access to your data. Some of these business partners may be located outside the country where you accessed this website.

Your rights

You have the right to ask VCare24 to provide you with all the information it stores on you. If you wish to access your personal data you can contact the data controller. You have the right to ask VCare24 to rectify, block, complete and delete your personal data, to restrict its use, and to port your data to another organisation. You have the right to request additional information about the handling of your personal data. You also have the right to object to the processing of your data by VCare24 in some circumstances and, where we have asked for consent to process your data, to withdraw this consent. Additionally, you may contact our Data Protection Officer.

There are exceptions to these rights, however. For example, access to personal data may be denied in some circumstances if making the information available would reveal personal information about another person or if VCare24 is legally prevented from disclosing such information. In addition, VCare24 may be able to retain data even if you withdraw your consent, where VCare24 can demonstrate that it has a legal requirement to process your data.

Countries your personal data will be sent to and why

VCare24 is a UK based company, and your personal data may be transferred across international borders in order for us to provide services and support to you. It may be transferred to countries that have different levels of data protection laws to the country from where you submitted your personal data. VCare24 (as Data Controller and Data Processor) has, where local data protection regulations so require, put in place security measures for the export of personal data from its jurisdiction. Where local data protection regulations so require, VCare24 has made arrangements with entities receiving your personal data such as VCare24 or Third-Party Data Processors, that they shall ensure that security measures are in place and that your personal data is processed only in accordance with UK Data Protection laws. If data is transferred from within the EEA to a jurisdiction outside the EEA, it is done so under a Data Transfer Agreement, which contains standard data protection contract clauses. The European Commission has adopted standard data protection contract clauses (known as the Model Clauses), which provide safeguards for personal information that is transferred outside of Europe.

The server that makes this website available may be located outside the country from which you have accessed this website. The provider of this website is bound by a contract that ensures your data is managed in accordance with EU Data Protection laws and that it acts only on VCare24 instructions and implements all technical measures necessary on an ongoing basis to keep your personal data secure.
