Privacy Policy

Mr Waseem Bhat believes that user privacy is integral to the success, growth, and utilisation of the Internet. This statement outlines the practices that her practice will adhere to with respect to the privacy of site users. This statement may undergo review and alteration as new services and programmes are introduced, requiring modifications to this statement. We encourage you to periodically revisit this Privacy Policy.

We do not collect personally identifiable information regarding the users of our Internet site – including email addresses – without obtaining user consent. In certain instances, we may request that users voluntarily provide information, including email address, street address, telephone number, or other details, to enable us to personalise and enhance a user’s site visit or to provide the opportunity for follow-up after the site visit. The provision of such information by users is entirely voluntary.

As your treating clinician and therefore custodian of personal information relating to your medical treatment, I must only use that information in accordance with all applicable law and guidance.  This Privacy Notice provides you with a detailed overview of how I will manage your data from the point at which it is gathered and onwards, and how that complies with the law.  I will use your personal information for a variety of purposes including, but not limited to, providing you with care and treatment, sharing it with other medical professionals and research/clinical audit programmes. In addition, you have a number of rights as a data subject.  You can, for instance, seek access to your medical information, object to me using your information in particular ways, request rectification of any information which is inaccurate or deletion of information which is no longer required (subject to certain exceptions).  This Privacy Notice also sets out your rights in respect of your personal information, and how to exercise them.

To use this site, you must be at least 18 years old. Our policy is that we do not knowingly collect, use, or disclose personally identifiable information about visitors under 18 years of age.

Use of Provided Information

If you voluntarily provide information, you consent to the collection and use of your personally identifiable information by the practice. However, we do not sell or rent personal information collected through this site to any third party.

We may provide aggregate statistics about website visitors, such as volume, traffic patterns, referral sources, and related site information to reputable third-party vendors. However, these statistics will not include any personally identifiable information about the users. We may also disclose information in special cases when we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  • Conform to legal requirements or comply with legal processes
  • Protect and defend our rights or property
  • Enforce the Website Terms and Conditions of Use
  • Act to protect the interests of our users or others

Occasionally, we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide personally identifiable information to the appropriate governmental authorities. We will disclose such information upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful.

If you have voluntarily provided personally identifiable information, Mr Waseem Bhat may, from time to time, send mail or email to you regarding products and services. If you do not wish to receive such offers and mailings, you can easily indicate your preference by checking the appropriate box on the submission form.
