In many cases, you will provide this information yourself by submitting information on the Site.
In addition, Medis may automatically collect information about the website that you came from or are going to. Medis also collects information on the parts of the Site you visit, the type of browser you use and the times you access the Site. However, this information is aggregated and is not used to identify you.

Cookies and related tracking technologies
Medis uses the following two categories of cookies on the Site:
Performance Cookies. These cookies collect information on how people use the Site. For example, Medis uses Google Analytics cookies to help us understand how customers arrive at the Site, browse or use the Site and highlight areas where we can improve areas such as navigation, user experience and marketing campaigns. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how the Site works.
Functionality Cookies. These cookies remember choices you make (such as language choices). These can then be used to provide you with an experience more appropriate to your selections and to make your visits to the Site more tailored. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
If you want to delete any cookies that are already on your computer, please refer to the help and support area on your internet browser for instructions on how to locate the file or directory that stores cookies.

How we store your information and your rights
We retain all the information we gather about you until you ask us to change or remove your personal data or for as long as is permitted by applicable law.
You may review, correct, update or change your personal data at any time by contacting us. Your right to such access or correcting may be limited by applicable law.
Medis takes measures to secure your personal data from accidental loss and from unauthorised access, use, alteration or disclosure. Data is transferred securely using SSL encryption and stored on secure servers. Additionally, we take further information security measures including access controls, stringent physical security and robust information collection, storage & processing practices. However, the internet is an open system and Medis cannot guarantee that unauthorised third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.
Medis operates internationally and may transfer some of your information to countries outside your own country and outside Israel and the European Economic Area. Some of these countries may not have equivalent data protection legislation. By submitting your information to this Site, you consent to such transfers taking place.
