This is how we deal with information about your visit to our website.
If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit:
We use this information to help us make the Canterbury District Health Board's site more useful to visitors – to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits.
If you choose to provide us with personal information – by filling out a form with your personal information and submitting it to us through the website – we use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested.
We only share the information you give us with another organisation if your inquiry relates directly to that organisation, or as otherwise required by law.
We do not create individual profiles with the information you provide or give it to any private organisations.
In some instances your data is stored by external secure online service providers. We currently use Survey Monkey for some of our online submission forms.
Canterbury District Health Board does not collect information for commercial marketing.
For website security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, this government computer system employs commercial software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorised attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
Except for authorised law enforcement investigations, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits. Raw data logs are used for no other purposes.
Unauthorised attempts to upload information or change information on this service are strictly prohibited and may be punishable.
The Canterbury District Health Board website has links to government agencies and health organisations. In some cases we link to private organisations, with their permission. Once you link to another site, you are subject to the privacy and security policies of the new site. Canterbury District Health Board does not have control over the policies or content of government or private sites outside of Canterbury District Health Board which we link to for public convenience.
