1. Introduction

This Privacy Policy governs the collection, processing and use of personal and non-personal information as a User of the Website, as of the effective date shown in the header.

The Website does not sell personal information to third parties and will always seek consent before using the data for any purposes other than those described in this clause.

In processing personal data, the Website complies with current local and European legislation and its implementing regulations. It, therefore, adopts the necessary technical and organisational measures to prevent the loss, misuse, alteration, unauthorised access and theft of the personal data provided; always according to the state of technology, the nature of the data and the risks to which they are exposed.

2. Who is the Data Controller?

Jesús Usón Minimally Invasive Surgery Centre is the Data Controller regarding the User’s personal data and informs that these data will be processed according to Regulation (EU) 2016/679, of 27 April (GDPR), and Organic Law 3/2018, of 5 December (LOPDGDD).

3. What personal data do we collect and process?

The personal and non-personal information collected by the Website will change depending on your use of the Website and the features, options and services offered.

Personal and non-personal information collected by the Website will come to us in three ways:

  1. Automatically collected
  2. Data voluntarily provided to us
  3. Data provided by third parties

3.1.- Automatically collected data

This information shall consist of:

a) Data collected by cookies or similar mechanisms stored in the User’s device, always with consent. Our Cookie Policy is available (link) for more information.

b) The IP from which the connection is made, the type of device used and its characteristics, the operating system version, the type of browser, the language, the date, the country, the time of the request, the referrer URL or the mobile network used, among others. The Website servers may automatically detect the IP address and domain name used by the User. An IP address is a number automatically assigned to a computer when it connects to the Internet. All this information is recorded in a server activity file which allows the data to be further processed to obtain purely statistical measurements of the number of page impressions, the number of visits made to the web servers, the order of visits, the point of access, etc.

c) Data on the use of the Website and possible errors detected during its use, such as pages not found or erroneous visualisations.

3.2.- Data provided voluntarily

This information will consist of the information in messages sent through the Website’s contact channels.

3.3.- Data provided by third parties

This information shall consist of information provided by social media or similar services.

4. What do we process personal data for, and what do we do with it?

We will primarily process the data to respond to enquiries from interested parties. The operations envisaged to carry out the processing are:

a) Processing orders, requests, responding to queries or any type of request made by the User through any of the forms of contact provided to him/her on the Controller’s Website.

The data provided to the Website will be used to respond to your requests for information or contact.

4.1.- In mails and contact forms

The Website is SSL-encrypted to allow secure submission of your personal data through standard contact forms.

The personal data collected will be subject to automated processing and incorporated into the corresponding files of the activity register and of which the Data Controller is the owner.

In this sense:

We will receive your IP address, which will be used to check the origin of the message to provide you with appropriate recommendations (e.g. to present the information in the correct language) and detect possible irregularities (e.g. possible attempts to cyber-attack the Website), and data relating to your ISP.

You may also provide us with your details by telephone, email and other means of communication as indicated.

Moreover, certain services provided through the Website may contain particular conditions on the protection of personal data. They will need to be accepted before participating in these services.

Finally, and as already stated, the purpose of processing this data will be solely to provide the information or services requested.

4.2.- Social media

a) Data Controller

The Controller and the Website have profiles on some of the leading social media on the Internet, and the Controller recognises itself as the Data Controller concerning the data published (for example, photos uploaded by the Controller in which people’s faces appear).

b) Purposes the processing

The processing that the Data Controller will carry out with the data within each of the social media pages will be, at most, that which the social media allows for corporate profiles.

The purpose of the processing is that already stated relating to the maintenance of a relationship between the User and the Controller and may include these operations: (a) to process requests and queries submitted to the Controller; b) to provide information on activities and events organised by the Controller; c) to interact through official profiles. Thus, where not prohibited by law, the Controller may inform our followers about its activities or by any means allowed by social media and provide personalised customer service.

Under no circumstances will the Data Controller extract data from social media unless the User’s consent to do so has been specifically obtained.

c) Legal basis for processing

Article 6.1.a) GDPR is the legal basis, as the User has given his/her consent to the processing of his/her personal data for one or more specific purposes. The User has a profile on the same social media and has decided to follow the Controller’s profile, thus showing interest in the information published. Therefore, when requesting to follow our official profiles, he/she gives his/her consent to the processing of personal data published on his/her profile.

The User may at any time access the privacy policies of the social media itself and configure his/her profile to guarantee his/her privacy.

The Controller has access to and processes the User’s public information, particularly his/her contact name. These data are only used within the social media itself and will only be included in a file belonging to the Data Controller when necessary to process the User’s request.

d) Data conservation criteria

They will be kept until the User revokes the consent given as stated in this privacy policy.

e) Recipients

The information provided by the User through the Data Controller’s social media, including his/her personal data, may be published, always depending on the services used by the User, and may, therefore, be publicly available to other third-party users of the social media.

On each social media profile, the Users can configure what information they want to make public in each case, view permissions granted, delete them or deactivate them, such as any third-party application that he/she no longer wishes to use.

No communication of personal data to third parties outside the social media is envisaged except, if essential for the development and execution of the purposes of the processing, to our service providers related to communications, with whom the Data Controller has signed the confidentiality and data processor contracts required by current privacy regulations.

f) Rights

When, due to the very nature of social media, effectively exercising the User’s or follower’s data protection rights is subject to the modification of the User’s or follower’s personal profile, the Controller will help and advise accordingly to the best of its ability.

g) Use of the profile

The Controller may carry out these actions:

  • Access public profile information.
  • Publish information already published on the Controller’s social media on the user’s profile.
  • Send personal and individual messages through social media channels.
  • Update the status of the page that will be published on the User’s profile.

Users can always control their connections, delete content that no longer interests them and restrict whom they share their connections with by accessing their privacy settings.

h) Posts

Once he/she is a follower or has joined the Controller’s social media, the User may publish comments, links, images, photographs or any other type of multimedia content supported. The User must, in all cases, be the owner of such content, hold the copyright and intellectual property rights or have the consent of the third parties concerned.

Any publication on social media, whether texts, graphics, photographs, videos, etc., that violate or are likely to violate morals, ethics, good taste or decorum and/or that infringe, violate or breach intellectual or industrial property rights, the right to image or the law, is expressly prohibited.

In such cases, the Controller reserves the right to remove the content immediately and without prior notice and may request the permanent blocking of the User.

The Controller shall not be held responsible for the contents freely published by a User. The User must bear in mind that other users will see his/her publications, so he/she is primarily responsible for his/her privacy.

The Data Controller will store none of the images published on social media, but they will remain on such social media.

i) Data of minors or persons with special abilities

Access and registration on the Data Controller’s social media are prohibited to persons under 18. If the User has special abilities, the intervention of the holder of parental authority or guardianship or his/her legal representative with a valid document accrediting representation will be necessary.

The Controller shall be expressly exonerated from any liability that may arise from the use of social media by minors or persons with special abilities. The Data Controller’s social media do not knowingly collect any personal information from minors. Therefore, if the User is a minor, he/she should not register, use the Controller’s social media or provide any personal information.
