Privacy Policy | CAROL REHIT Exercise Bike

Privacy Notice

The website carolbike.com, the CAROL bike app, and the CAROL mobile app (together the “Site”) are provided by Integrated Health Partners Limited (“we”/”us”/”our”). In doing so, we may be in a position to receive and process personal information relating to you. As the controller of this information, we’re providing this Privacy Notice (“Notice”) to explain our approach to personal information. This Notice forms part of our Terms and Conditions, which govern the use of this Site.  

Our sole intention is to process personal information fairly and transparently as required by data protection laws, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Specifically, before obtaining information from you (including through the use of cookies), we intend to alert you to this Notice, tell you how we intend to process the information, and—unless the processing is necessary for at least one of the five reasons outlined in clause 2 below—we will process the information only if you consent to that processing. The GDPR also defines certain “special categories” of personal information that are considered especially sensitive. These categories require a higher level of protection, as we explain below. 

You may browse parts of our website without providing any information about yourself and without accepting cookies. In such cases, it is unlikely that we will obtain and process any information relating to you. 

We will begin this Notice by laying out the conditions that we must satisfy before processing your data. However, you may wish to start with the table in clause 4, which summarizes what we intend to collect, or the table in clause 8.5, which summarizes our use of cookies. The Notice also explains some of the security measures we adopt to protect your personal information and tells you certain things that we will or won’t do. You should read this Notice in conjunction with our Terms and Conditions. 

Sometimes, when you take a new service or product from us, or discuss taking a new service or product but decide against it, we might wish to provide you with further information about similar services or products by email or other written electronic communication. In that situation, we will always give you the opportunity to refuse to receive that further information—and if you change your mind, please let us know. We will endeavor to remind you of your right to opt out on each occasion that we provide such information.

5 Using your personal information

5.1 Data protection, privacy, and security are important to us; we will use your personal information only for specified purposes and will not keep such personal information longer than is necessary to fulfill these purposes. The following are examples of such purposes. We have also indicated below which GDPR justification applies; however, this will depend on the circumstances of each case. At the time of collecting, we will provide further information, and you may ask us for further information at any time. 

5.1.1 To help us to identify you when you contact us. This will normally be necessary for the performance our contract. 

5.1.2 To help us to identify accounts, services and/or products you may have from us or selected partners from time to time. We may do this by automatic means using a scoring system, which uses the personal information you have provided and/or any information we hold about you as well as personal information from third-party agencies (including credit reference agencies). We will use your information for this purpose only if you agree to it. 

5.1.3 To help us to administer—and to contact you about improved administration—of any accounts, services and products we have provided before, provide now, or will or may provide in the future. This will often be necessary, but sometimes the improvements will not be necessary, in which case we will ask whether you consent. 

5.1.4 To allow us to carry out marketing analysis and customer profiling (including with transactional information) and to conduct research, including creating statistical and testing information. This will sometimes require that you consent, but will sometimes be exempt as market research. 

5.1.5 To help to prevent and detect fraud or loss. This will only be done in certain circumstances when we consider it necessary or when the law requires it. 

5.1.6 To allow us to contact you by written electronic means (such as email, text or multimedia messages) about products and services we offer, where: 

5.1.6.1 These products are similar to those you have already purchased from us 

5.1.6.2 You were given the opportunity to opt out of being contacted by us at the time your personal information was originally collected by us and at the time of our subsequent communications with you, and 

5.1.6.3 You have not opted out of us contacting you. 

5.1.7 To allow us to contact you in any way (including mail, email, telephone, visit, text or multimedia messages) about products and services offered by us and selected partners where you have expressly consented to us doing so. 

5.1.8 We may monitor and record communications with you (including phone conversations and emails) for quality assurance and compliance. 

5.1.8.1 Before doing so, we will always tell you of our intentions and of the specific purpose in making the recording. Sometimes, such recordings will be necessary to comply with the law. Alternatively, sometimes the recording will be necessary for our legitimate interest, but in that case we will record the call only if our interest outweighs yours. This will depend on all the circumstances—in particular, the importance of the information and whether we can obtain the information in another, less intrusive way. 

5.1.8.2 If we think the recording would be useful for us but also that it is not necessary, we will ask whether you consent to the recording, and will provide an option for you to tell us that you consent. In those situations, if you do not consent, the call will either automatically end or will not be recorded. 

5.1.9 When it is required by law, we will check your details with fraud prevention agencies. If you provide false or inaccurate information and we suspect fraud, we intend to record this. 

5.2 We will not disclose your personal information to any third party except in accordance with this Notice, and in particular in these circumstances: 

5.2.1 They will be processing the data on our behalf as a data processor (where we will be the data controller). In that situation, we will always have a contract with the data processor as set out in the GDPR. This contract provides significant restrictions as to how the data processor operates so that you can be confident your data is protected to the same degree as provided in this Notice. 

5.2.2 Sometimes it may be necessary to share data with another data controller. Before doing so, we will always notify you. Note that if we receive information about you from a third party, we will let you know as soon as reasonably practicable, as is required by the GDPR. 

5.2.3 Alternatively, sometimes we may consider it to be in your interest to send your information to a third party. If that is the case, we will always ask for your consent before sending. 

5.3 Where you give us personal information on behalf of someone else, you confirm that you have provided them with the information set out in this Notice and that they have not objected to such use of their personal information. 

5.4 In connection with any transaction which we enter into with you: 

5.4.1 We may carry out one or more credit checks where you have given us your express consent. 

5.4.2 We may carry out one or more fraud prevention checks with licensed fraud prevention agencies. 

5.4.3 We and such licensed fraud prevention agencies may keep a record of the search. Information held about you by these agencies may be linked to records relating to other people living at the same address with whom you are financially linked. These records may also be taken into account in credit and fraud prevention checks. Information from your application and payment details of your account will be recorded with one or more of these agencies and may be shared with other organizations to help make credit and insurance decisions about you and members of your household with whom you are financially linked and for debt collection and fraud prevention. This includes those who have moved house and who have missed payments. 

5.4.4 If you provide false or inaccurate information to us and we suspect fraud, we will record this and may share it with other people and organizations. We, as well as other credit and insurance organizations, may also use technology to detect and prevent fraud. 

5.4.5 If you need details of those credit agencies and fraud prevention agencies from which we obtain and with which we record information about you, please write to our Data Protection Manager at Integrated Health Partners Limited, 2 Underwood Row, London, N1 7LQ, United Kingdom. 

5.4.6 We may need to transmit the payment and delivery information provided by you during the order process for the purpose of obtaining authorization from your bank or from PayPal. 

5.5 We may allow other people and organizations to use personal information we hold about you in the following circumstances: 

5.5.1 If we, or substantially all of our assets, are acquired or are in the process of being acquired by a third party, in which case personal information held by us about our customers will be one of the transferred assets. 

5.5.2 If we have been legitimately asked to provide information for legal or regulatory purposes or as part of legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings. 

5.5.3 We may employ companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf and we may disclose your personal information to these parties for the purposes set out above—for example, for fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and email, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit and debit card payments, and providing customer service. Those parties will be bound by strict contractual provisions with us and will have access only to such personal information as is needed to perform their functions, and they may not use it for any other purpose. Furthermore, they must process the personal information in accordance with this Notice and as permitted by the GDPR. From time to time, these other people and organizations to whom we may pass your personal information may be outside the European Economic Area. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with this Notice and the GDPR. 

6 Protecting information

6.1 We have strict security measures to protect personal information. 

6.2 We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software to encrypt information you input. 

6.3 We reveal only the last five digits of your credit card number when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. 

6.4 We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you. 

6.5 It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer. 

7 The internet

7.1 If you communicate with us using the internet, we may occasionally email you about our services and products. When you first give us personal information through the Site, we will normally give you the opportunity to say whether you would prefer that we not contact you by email. You can also always send us an email (at the address set out below) at any time if you change your mind. 

7.2 Please remember that communications over the internet, such as emails and webmail (messages sent through a website), are not secure unless they have been encrypted. Your communications may go through a number of countries before they are delivered—this is the nature of the internet. We cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorized access or loss of personal information that is beyond our control.

8 Cookies and other internet tracking technology

8.1 When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. This sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your computer, which is sent back to us at a later time. These are called “cookies.” These cookies are listed in the table at clause 8.5. Some websites do not use cookies but use related technology for gaining information about website users, such as JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Multiple cookies may be found in a single file, depending on which browser you use. 

8.2 Where applicable, this section of the Notice also relates to that technology, but the term “cookie” is used throughout. 

8.3 Some of these cookies are essential to services you have requested from us, whereas others are used to improve services for you—for example, by: 

8.3.1 Letting you navigate between pages efficiently, 

8.3.2 Enabling a service to recognize your computer so you don’t have to give the same information during one task, 

8.3.3 Recognizing that you have already given a username and password so you don’t need to enter it for every web page requested, and 

8.3.4 Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and so that there is enough capacity to ensure that they are fast. 

8.4 To learn more about cookies, you may wish to visit: www.allaboutcookies.org, www.youronlinechoices.eu or www.google.com/policies/technologies/cookies/ 

8.5 The distinctions between the cookies used are as follows: 

8.5.1 First-party versus third-party cookies: We set first-party cookies ourselves; third-party cookies are set by other entities via our Site. 

8.5.2 Session versus persistent cookies: Session cookies persist only for the duration of that visit; persistent cookies last for longer. 

8.5.3 Identifying information removed: Just because we have removed identifying information, the cookies will still constitute personal information if the relevant information can be reassembled. 

8.5.4 Categories 1–4 found in the ICC UK Cookie Guide, are explained below. Category 1 cookies don’t require the user’s consent, although users must still be notified about the cookies. Categories 2-4 do require users’ specific and informed consent. 

Category 1: Strictly necessary. These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided. 

In this category we include cookies that are used only for electronic communication. (The ICC does not refer to these cookies, but the law is the same.) 

Note that cookies for which another person is the controller will never be necessary for a service requested of you. On the other hand, if you have asked another person to send a cookie on your behalf for an essential feature of your website, that would be Category 1. 

Category 2: Performance. These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website—for instance, which pages visitors go to most often, and whether they get error messages from web pages. This information is used only to improve how a website works. 

Category 3: Functionality. These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personalized features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by using a cookie to store the region where you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for, such as a live chat session. 

Category 4: Targeting and advertising. These cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as to help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website, and this information is shared with other organizations, such as advertisers. Quite often, targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organization. 

8.6 As with any other information we may collect from you, we will work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software to encrypt information you input. 

8.7 The Site may include links to third-party websites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer personal information to these third-party websites unless you have consented in accordance with this privacy notice; however, as to cookies, please see the above clause, “Cookies and other internet tracking technology.” 

8.8 We exclude all liability for loss that you may incur when using these third-party websites.
