Privacy Policy

At Select Medical we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our visitors to our website and subscribers to our newsletter.  In particular, we want you to know that Select Medical does not sell, rent or trade email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. Here you’ll find information on how we treat data that we collect from visitors to our website, or when someone subscribes to our newsletter.


Visitors to our website

When someone visits www.selectmedical.co.uk we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. You can find more information on how cookies are used on this website in the Cookies Policy below.

If you fill in a form on our website, and give personally identifiable information through our website, we collect this information. We do this for a few reasons; for the purpose of fulfilling your request or query and to be able to contact you if we need to obtain further information. We do not rent, trade or sell this information on to any third parties.


Newsletter Sign Up

As part of the registration process for our e-newsletters, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We use a third party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.

You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the top of any of our newsletters or by calling 01254 668899.
