    We will only send you direct marketing in relation to our own products and services by email or SMS:

    • where you have consented to this; or
    • where you have not objected to this, and we are marketing similar products and services to those which were the subject of a previous sale or negotiations of a sale to you.

    Your agreement to the use of your personal information for direct marketing purposes is optional and if you choose not to consent, your visit to and use of our Website will not be affected.

    You have the right to opt out of receiving promotional communications at any time by:

    • contacting us (see ‘How to contact us’ below);
    • using the ‘unsubscribe’ link in emails; or
    • updating your marketing preferences on our website www.DolbyVivisol.com

    We may ask you to confirm or update your marketing preferences if you instruct us to provide further products and/or services in the future, or if there are changes in the law, regulation, or the structure of our business.

    Who we share your personal information with

    We routinely share personal information with:

    • companies within the Dolby Medical group of companies;
    • third parties we use to help deliver our products and/or services to you, e.g. payment service providers, warehouses and delivery companies;
    • other third parties we use to help us run our business, e.g. marketing agencies or website hosts;
    • third parties approved by you, e.g. social media sites you choose to link your account to or third party payment providers;
    • our insurers and brokers;
    • our bank(s);
    • NHS Trusts and Clinical Care Groups;
    • fire & rescue services; and
    • third parties for delivery of “holiday” oxygen services outside our regions.

    We only allow our service providers to handle your personal information if we are satisfied they take appropriate measures to protect your personal information. We also impose contractual obligations on service providers relating to ensure they can only use your personal information to provide services to us and to you. We may also share personal information with external auditors, e.g. in relation to ISO or Investors in People accreditation and the audit of our accounts.

    We may disclose and exchange information with law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.

    We may also need to share some personal information with other parties, such as potential buyers of some or all of our business or during a re-structuring. Usually, information will be anonymised but this may not always be possible. The recipient of the information will be bound by confidentiality obligations.

    We will not share your personal information with any other third party.

    Where your personal information is held

    Information may be held at our offices and those of our group companies, third party agencies, service providers, representatives and agents as described above (see above: ‘Who we share your personal information with’).

    Some of these third parties may be based outside the European Economic Area. For more information, including on how we safeguard your personal information when this occurs, see below: ‘Transferring your personal information out of the EEA’.

    How long your personal information will be kept

    We will keep your personal information while you have an account with us or we are providing products and/or services to you. Thereafter, we will keep your personal information for as long as is necessary:

    • to respond to any questions, complaints or claims made by you or on your behalf;
    • to show that we treated you fairly; and
    • to keep records required by law.

    We will not retain your personal information for longer than necessary for the purposes set out in this policy. Different retention periods apply for different types of personal information. Further, if your personal data relates to health data, we will follow the processes and procedures set out in the NHS’ Records Management Code of Practice for Health and Social Care.

    When it is no longer necessary to retain your personal information, we will delete or anonymise it in accordance with the above NHS Code of Practice.

    Transferring your personal information out of the EEA

    Where there is an international dimension to the services we are providing to you, it may be necessary for us to share your personal information outside the European Economic Area (EEA):

    • with your and our service providers located outside the EEA; and
    • if you, or a third person receiving the services are travelling outside the EEA.

    These transfers are subject to special rules under European and UK data protection law.

    Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

    • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
    • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
    • If we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US.
    • Alternatively, where there is an absence of an adequacy decision or the appropriate safeguards, we will only proceed with a transfer out of the EEA if:
      • having informed you of the possible risks of such transfer, you give your explicit consent to us proceeding with the transfer; or
      • the transfer is necessary to protect your vital interests, where you are physically or legally incapable of giving consent; or
      • the transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and us; or
      • the transfer is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract concluded in your interest.

    If you would like further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA please contact us (see ‘How to contact us’ below).
