In some cases, that will include information about your health (eg if you ask a health-related query). We understand that you consent to us collecting this information.

In some cases we may collect information directly from health care professionals, including doctors, nurses and midwives. This information will relate only to the health care professional, and not to their patients. This information will be used only as set out in this privacy policy, including sending the health care professional information about events and products and responding to their enquiries and in some cases we may ask for their opinion on certain matters. Under no circumstances will we collect information relating to the health care professional’s patients or send any communications directly to their patients.

In such cases we will ensure that any children’s information is only provided to us on a voluntary basis and with the consent of the relevant parent or guardian. This children’s information is collected for the purpose of segmenting information and enabling us to assess and respond to enquiries and to provide more informed, appropriate and tailored products and services to the relevant parent or guardian. Under no circumstances will we use the children’s information for sending any communications directly to those children. Subject to the particular restrictions set out in this “Sensitive and Children’s Information” section, children’s information will be used strictly in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

When we obtain information about any individual from a third party we will comply with the relevant privacy legislation at all times. A parent or guardian may contact us at any time if they would like to amend, update or remove information relating to their child.
