IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY VERY CAREFULLY. Please see Terms of Use and Disclaimer for further information that governs your use of this website. By accessing, browsing and(or) using this website, you accept and agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use and Disclaimer (“Terms and Conditions”). ASTAKHOVA &PARTNERS and its subsidiaries and affiliates (“A&P”) may revise and update the Terms and Conditions from time to time without notice.

Collection and use of personal information

This website may provide you with the opportunity to voluntarily submit forms to request and(or) enquiry additional information from A&P. In the course of these transactions, you may provide A&P with personal and demographic information or possibly detailed social information. A&P will use the information you provide solely to help A&P respond to your request and(or) enquiry. As part of your researching request or fulfilling your enquiry, your information may be shared with A&P employees and(or) third parties without limitation.

A&P will not sell, rent, loan, trade or lease any information collected on this website. However, A&P may need to use the information you provide in connection with your use of this website within the A&P and(or) with a third party to perform administrative, technical, or other functions that help A&P provide service or information to you or to meet our client requirements. Meanwhile, important to govern when you are transferred to or you otherwise visit a third party website, the privacy policy, disclaimer and other terms and conditions of that website will apply to your use of or visit that website. A&P does not control or guarantee the accuracy, relevance, timeliness, or completeness of any information or privacy policies published on the websites A&P link to and(or) referred to.

A&P may use and disclose your activity information unless restricted by this policy or by law.

Some examples of the ways A&P may use your activity information include:

Except as noted above, A&P will not release individualised information obtained through this website to another party unless required to do so by government authorities, legal processes, or otherwise required by law.

You have the right and ability to exit the A&P site at any time and not remain in an active session. If you choose to remain in session on this site, you implicitly consent to this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use and Disclaimer.

Although A&P will make all reasonable efforts to preserve your privacy, A&P may disclose your information as follows:

Except as described in this Privacy Policy, A&P will not disclose your information outside of A&P without your consent. A&P may share information, aggregated demographic, and statistical information with A&P business partners and other third parties including without limitation for research, audit, treatment or program evaluation. This is not linked to any information that can identify any individual person.

Your sensitive information is encrypted and transmitted to A&P in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or by looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

You agree that any comments, suggestions, or other information sent to A&P by way of this site are provided without restriction or obligation on A&P and A&P will be free to use such information on an unrestricted basis. You also agree:

Email addresses are collected as part of the activity process for the website. Email addresses are used to notify users of website activity related to the security and privacy of their requests, enquiries and accounts, such as requests to change an email address. A&P does not sell, rent, lease or give away user email addresses. A&P does not share your email information with third parties other than for providing service to you.

Risk of human error

Threats to personal information can be internal or external as well as malicious or unintentional. Privacy breaches can arise as a result of human activity or events such as natural disasters. Human error is regularly claimed as the cause of privacy incidents; meanwhile, entities should assume that human error will occur and design for it. Research has shown that human error could be seen as a trigger rather than a cause of an incident. Information security risk assessments will enable you to design practices, procedures and systems to deal with the foreseeable risk of human error and minimise its effect.

Linked sites

A&P’s website has links to various other websites that we think might be useful or of interest to you. A&P cannot take any responsibility for, and does not endorse the privacy practices or the content of, its linked websites. A&P urges you to review the privacy policies of any websites you visit once you leave A&P’s website. Links to various non-A&P websites do not constitute or imply endorsement by A&P of these websites, any products or services described on these sites, or of any other material contained within them.

Minors

Minor under the age of 18 must consult with a parent or guardian and will not use this website without consent, monitoring, and assistance of such a parent or guardian.

Parents and Guardians

Parents and guardians are responsible for providing supervision of their minor’s use of this website or any A&P website. Parents and guardians assume full responsibility for ensuring that all information supplied by or on behalf of their minor is kept secure and is accurate for all use of this website or any A&P website by or for their minor.

Policy is subject to change

A&P is always looking to offer expanded features and functions that make health care more efficient and accessible for their users.
