Purepages Group is grateful that you have taken the time to visit our Internet presence, www.medicourse.co.uk and we hope that it was both interesting and commercially beneficial for you. Our database of healthcare courses, medical training, medical and healthcare events is growing daily and you may visit us on the web at any time, totally anonymously, and without passing over any personal information.
Importantly, when you subscribe to the Medicourse system, blogs, newsletter or make a purchase from us, please be advised that we will not sell, loan, or give your email address or other personal and financial information to anybody without your consent. Recent courtcases in both the USA and Europe have indicated a strong surge towards ethical marketing which means total transparency is necessary if a healthcare company is paying a clinician or healthcare practitioner. Medical prosthetics manufacturers, for example, can no longer pay surgeons for product development anonymously. Drug companies can no longer sponsor doctors without declaring this fact to the public.
Collection of Your Personal Information

On occasion, we make special propositions to subscribers. With our comprehensive database of healthcare and medical training events, academic course in healthcare, seminars, meetings and events in hospital management for example, we can electronically personalise any individual request. So whilst our propositions are primarily for our services, they may include research proposals, for example, on behalf of third parties such as pharma groups. We alone send out the emails, to ensure that the third parties do not have access to your information. However, all recipients of proposals may opt-out of receiving third party proposals when they so wish, and are given opportunity to opt-out of these emails at any time at the bottom of each proposal.
We may also use personal information in a manner that does not identify you specifically nor allow you to be contacted but does identify certain criteria about my website users in general. For example, we may inform third parties about the number of registered users, number of unique visitors, and the pages most frequently browsed. Any information we share will be on a purely aggregate basis, not tied at all to users’ individual site activity.

Any financial information you enter on-line such as your credit card number, etc. will be encrypted using secure socket layer (SSL) encryption technology. If you are using Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer you can tell the technology is working when you see the lock icon at the bottom of your browser. The protection of your information is important to us. Fot those organisations supplying information n healthcare and medical courses, events, seminars and professional meetings in healthcare sectors can also expect total security of information
