This document describes how we treat the data you provide us with or that we gather through any site or application offered by FERGUS MEDICAL S. A., headquartered in Avenida Manuel Savio s/n, Lote 3, Manzana 3, Parque Industrial Ferreyra, Cordoba, Cordoba, Argentina (“FERGUS”), regardless of it being owned by it or by its vendors.
First, we will establish the general privacy conditions related to the FERGUS (FERGUS MEDICAL S. A.) webpage or “FERGUS Website”, and then we will deal with particular cases (e.g.: specific terms related to the treatment of data provided via forms).
- General Terms
In compliance with the provisions of the Argentine Personal Data Protection Act (Ley de Protección de Datos Personales) No. 25,326 and its complimentary regulations (the “Law”), you hereby consent to the treatment of your personal data and/or personal sensitive data by FERGUS as established by the Law.
The FERGUS Website is owned and operated by FERGUS, but the information you supply will be accessible to our affiliates in other countries subject to the terms detailed below.
All personal data received by FERGUS will be treated with the utmost discretion and confidentiality. Our company has deployed all the appropriate technical and organizational means to prevent the loss, misuse, tampering, unauthorized access or copy of the personal data supplied. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is impossible to guarantee the complete security of the transactions; which is why we have created a help line so that you can report any suspected activity that threatens this security to [email protected].
This Policy may be updated from time to time, so we advise you to check the date of the latest version, to which you will agree by navigating the sites. We reserve our right to change it without notice.
How Is Your Data Collected
We may gather data in two ways.
- You provide us with the data: FERGUS may require your data for a specific activity (to send you information, trainings, etc.). If so, you will be notified that you need to provide them and whether it is mandatory or optional. This information may be treated together with other information associated to you which you may supply or which may be collected by our systems.
- The information systems collect the information automatically: the applications offered by FERGUS, which may be owned by FERGUS or a third party, may collect certain data, such as your browser type, computer or mobile device type, operating system, screen resolution or MAC (Media Access Control) address, while you navigate the site without requiring you to provide them.
How Is Your Data Used
We may create a “business profile” based on the information provided, since FERGUS, like most companies, uses customer relationship management (CRM) databases to manage and track our marketing strategies. Our CRM databases include personal data collected through the FERGUS Website forms as well as other legitimate sources. No automated decisions will be made based on this profile.
We do not collect sensitive personal data unless it is done with a specific, explicit notice that requires you to consent expressly. Otherwise, you should refrain from giving us such information.
FERGUS may share your personal data to related companies (companies that are affiliated to, controlled by or subsidiaries of FERGUS). Furthermore, we may transfer information collected via the site to third-party service vendors who provide services to keep our navigation platform functioning (i.e.: infrastructure, hosting, traffic audits, applications, audits, etc.). FERGUS MEDICAL S. A. is responsible for managing the personal information used jointly with such third parties. You may check the list of entities by writing to [email protected]
Emails and Other Business Communications
We send business emails and other communications (via instant messaging, for example), as deemed appropriate by the Law, to those individuals with whom we want to develop or maintain a business relationship.
Email and other communications by FERGUS targeted to a specific segment may include additional information about data privacy as required by Law.
FERGUS only sends business communications if it is legally appropriate to do so.
You may exercise your right to refuse being sent marketing communications by not checking certain boxes in the forms we use to gather your personal data or by using voluntary exclusion mechanisms in the communications we send. In such cases, we will keep minimal personal data considering that you have opted out of participating so that we do not contact you again.
The content and services of the FERGUS Website are directed to users aged 18 or older. Our sites are not designed to attract younger users. If it comes to our knowledge that a user under the age of 18 has offered personal information in relation with the FERGUS Website, we will delete this information from our databases.
You may exercise your rights of access, rectification, cancellation, opposition or any other right granted to you by the applicable law by means of a written request to [email protected]. Keep in mind that we may ask for additional information to identify you when performing the request. We will comply with your request, if appropriate, within the legally-established period starting from the reception of your request in the mentioned email.
The Public Information Access Agency (Agencia de Acceso a la Información Pública), which is the controlling body for the Personal Data Protection Act No. 25,326, is tasked with receiving complaints and reports regarding non-compliance with personal data protection regulations.
