We have information security and confidentiality policies, designed to prevent unauthorised access to confidential information. If you would like access to information stored about you, please ask to speak to Dr. Gayathri A Kini.
Different terms may apply to information that you give to us in writing.
Web cookies and online tracking technology
When you visit a website, it may save a small text file your computer to remember you between visits called a “cookie”. It may also use other similar techniques that are regulated in the same way.
If the website contains code from another service, for example by including a Facebook "like" button, or certain forms of advertising, that service provider may also be able to set cookies or track you in a similar way.
The University Dental Care website doesn't set any tracking cookies directly (“first party” cookies) or use any mechanism to track you as an individual.
However, we may include optional features on our website that allow you to connect with us on social media like Facebook or Twitter, for example a Facebook "like" button.
These sources may set “third-party” cookies, or use some method to track you. Therefore we will ask if you are happy before we do this.
Before making a decision you should consider the benefit of being able to connect with University Dental Care on social media, compared with the loss of privacy you face when third parties such as Facebook and Twitter track you. Typically they will do this in order to target you with more relevant advertising.
Online Appointment Requests
We collect information when you fill out a form to request an appointment. We use this only to process your request, for example by looking up your records and booking you an appointment, and contacting you in relation to that appointment.
Online Registration / Online Medical Questionnaire
We ask patients who register with us to fill out a questionaire about their medical history, which can be submitted online or printed out and submitted in person.
Your medical history is sensitive information, and we ask for your explicit consent to collect and process it electronically at the time of submission.
We collect and store this information online using best practice in security and data protection including encrypted transmission, secure storage, audited access control, and formal personal data retention policies. We use this information to process your registration only, and to contact you in relation to that registration.
When you e-mail us
Please note that e-mail cannot generally be relied upon as a private method of communication. When you e-mail us we will contact you only in relation to your query unless you agree otherwise.
When you request to register with us
We may contact you electronically in order to provide the service you requested, or to provide you with important information.
When we process your registration, we may require more information from you. You will recieve any additional relevant privacy information at that time.
We may direct certain third parties to process data securely on our behalf. These third parties are contractually bound to process your data securely and only as directed by University Dental Care in order to deliver a service you requested.
