Privacy Policy

Madesil Pharmacy is committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect about you to ensure you receive a unique experience and the best service each time you visit our site, and it is for this reason we need to collect and store information about you and the services we have provided to you. 

The information we collect 

When you buy services or goods from us we will collect and store certain personal information to allow us to process your order and fulfil our obligation to you in addition to notifying you of your order status. 

For instance, your telephone number enables us to contact you urgently if there is a problem with your order such as a discontinued product. 

By law, we are required that for pharmacy only medicines from our website we ask for additional information to ensure that our pharmacists can check that the medicine is suitable for you to use. This is also to ensure your safety.
 
For patients using our NHS Prescription and repeat prescription service we will need to know whether you pay for your NHS prescriptions and if not the reason that you are exempt from payment (akin to the back of the traditional green prescription form). We also collect information about your existing medical conditions and any other prescription medication that have been or currently are prescribed for you by your doctor. Our systems will store the details of all medicines and products that we have supplied to you on either an acute or repeat basis. 

How we use data 

We may on occasion use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to the medicines you use and to send you specialised promotions we think you might be interested in. You may choose to opt out of our marketing communications by following the instructions on the bottom of the emails you receive. Removing and disabling cookies We recommend that you do not block the recording of cookies on your computer in order to use the payment section of our website. If you don’t want us to place cookies on your computer at all, you can set your browser to disable or reject cookies. This may mean, however, that you will not be able to enjoy full use of all parts of the Site.

Third Party Policy
 
Sometimes we may make generic details available to companies whose products or services we think may interest our customers. If you do not wish to receive such offers you can change your account settings on our website or contact us and we will talk you through it. We may also disclose information to outside parties if we are required by law to do so, or where the public interest overrides the need to keep the information confidential. 

We may use third-party advertising companies or affiliates to display advertisements on our website. These third-party advertising companies or affiliates may separately recognise a cookie file on your browser in the course of delivering advertisements to our website. We cannot see the information collected or stored in third party cookies and we do not provide personal data about you to these third party advertisers either.
