Privacy Policy

Basic principles

We attach great importance to the problem of privacy of the Users of docplanner-canada.com. As the controller, ZnanyLekarz Sp. z o.o. ensures the security of the data provided to our Company. This data is specially protected and secured against access of unauthorised persons. The rules of privacy at docplanner-canada.com are available to all the interested parties.

The docplanner-canada.com website is open. One of the main services of the website is the possibility to publish and disseminate information and opinions on medical Professionals and Establishments, and for this reason their data is commonly available to all entities using the Internet and may be indexed by browsers.

Rules of processing operational data

The information contained in system logs, resulting from general rules of Internet connections (e.g. IP address), are used by docplanner-canada.com for technical purposes related to the administration of our servers. Apart from this, IP addresses are used for collecting general, statistical demographic information (e.g. about the region from which a connection originates). docplanner-canada.com uses cookies in order to provide services and content adjusted to the individual needs and interests. In some cases the identification and the related individualised (personalised) access to the websites are based on cookies, but most often at least one user authorisation with a password per session is necessary. Disabling cookies in the browser usually does not prevent the use of our services, but may cause some difficulties. Cookies are also used for collecting general, statistical information on the use of our websites by users.

Data required during registration:

In the registration form the following data is required: e-mail address (login), password, first name (names), surname, year of birth, sex, postal code, province, city/town of residence and signature as well as a one-time code activating the Account.

Professionals are also required to give the number of medical licence and personal identification number. Persons who practice a medical profession without a licence should send a scan of a diploma confirming their qualifications and a scan of an ID card. The numbers and scans thus obtained are only used for confirming the rights of Professionals.

Disclosed User data:

Opinions published by the User are marked with the signature adopted at the time of the registration. No other information on users is publically disclosed.

Data disclosed in the Professional’s Profile:

The Professional’s Profile shows all the information provided during registration, with the exception of the date of birth, e-mail address (login), password and account-activating code. In addition, other data optionally provided by the Professional are also displayed, in particular contact details and opening hours. Each profile also contains a list of opinions and an average score.

Data required when arranging appointments with physicians:

When making an appointment with a physician it is necessary to give the first name and surname, telephone number, e-mail address and in some cases personal identification number. This data will be displayed to the physician with which the appointment is made and possibly to the reception desk of his/her establishment. It is forbidden to fill the “information for physician” field with information on the health condition; this field should only be used for providing technical information on the appointment with the physician.

Right to verify, modify and delete personal data. Limitations.

At any time, Users and Professionals have the right to review his/her data and may update or delete it. In order to prevent repeated registration of persons whose participation in docplanner-canada.com was ended due to unacceptable uses of our services, we may refuse to delete data necessary for the purpose of blocking such repeated registration.

A refusal to delete data also takes place in cases provided for in the provisions of law.
