If you “friend” us on social media such as Facebook or Twitter; your doing so is consent to our doing likewise with respect to you.

We only use your personal information for the purposes outlined above. If we need to use your personal information for any other purpose we will contact you and obtain your consent prior to that use.

You have the right to withdraw your consent to our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information at any time. However, if you do so it may affect your ability to complete bookings and or stay informed of in-house events, expirations and features. By providing us with the personal information we request (as outlined above), we can ensure proper handling of your incoming communications, more efficient use of your time with regard to booking and processing and ensure the customer service experience.

Business contact information is not protected by this policy. This type of information is considered personal information and so can be collected, used and disclosed without consent.

In most cases you consent to us collecting and using your personal information for the purposes outlined above by simply agreeing to provide us with your personal information. However, there may be cases where we will want to get your explicit consent to disclose your information, including when your personal information will be disclosed to a Specialist or Doctor.

Recorded incoming telephone calls are retained for 2 weeks, after which they are erased from our records.

If you send us an email message or an electronic communication using social media such as Facebook or Twitter, which includes personal information, we may use that information to respond to your inquiry. But electronic communications are not necessarily secure against interception, so you should not send these if you are concerned about that possibility or you are satisfied that your method is encrypted or is otherwise sufficiently secure.

Any concerns with the estimated charge should be directed to our Privacy Officer.
